Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

Can you believe it's already November??? Just a few more weeks till Christmas!!! I already purchased my first presents yesterday...I'm so trying to be *ahead* of myself, since I'm always running behind these days...LOL!!!

Anyways, as promised I'm showing you some of my girls Halloween photos before I show you my FTTC card....this is a long post so grab your drinks and check it out!!!

Sarah and her friends ~ Sarah was *Snow White*


Are these cute girls or what...LOL??? We had a wonderful time and I can't believe how big the girls are getting!!!

Anyway, it is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC91!!! This week Betty is our host!!! She is challenging us to find inspiration with from this awesome Cafe Baudelaire prints. Visit the site and choose a picture that inspires you. The images are French shabby chic, but that style card or project is not required. Hope you'll join us?!?

Here is the inspiration photo I chose......


Here is my card........



I was so thrilled to make this card, because I just received this Webster DP ~ Waiting for Santa & Sweet Season which was absolutely perfect for my card today!!! If you have not seen this Design Paper yet, make sure to add it to your shopping card...you will love it!!! The sentiment and flourished image are from the Many Sentiments Set!!! The tag was created with this Tag Die. The flowers were created with small Sizzix Sizzlits Flowers. I embellished my card with some Black Lace Ribbon, some Antique Brads, Satin Ribbon, Glitter and Rhinestones!!!

My card is also for this months Flourishes *Bring Back Beautiful ~ BBB04* Challenge. Read all about it right here!!!

Please don't forget to stop by ~ Barbara, Betty (sick this week) , Cindy, Dee and Maki's to see their take on the inspiration site!!!

Thank you for stopping by today....have fun playing!!! Hugs ~S~
