Triple Play

I visited some of my favorite challenge blogs this morning, including one I just discovered. After poking around, I finally decided to combine three of the challenges into one card. It was fun, but time consuming!

  1. Mojo Monday - Love today's sketch, so it was a must to include.
  2. Heart 2 Heart Challenges - This week is a color challenge, and I happened to already be using 2 of the 3 colors for a layout, so this was in! Colors are Ocean, Topiary, and Desert Sand.
  3. A new soon-to-be favorite, Haunted Design House (all Halloween, all the time) Macabre Monday. This week's theme is Devious Doctors & Fiendish Florence Nightingales! To be honest, this is the one that took me so much time, as I hunted the 'net for just the right image.
Here's what I wound up with:
First, that image! My initial thought was a witch doctor image, but I was having trouble finding just the right one when I stumbled upon this Brain Doctor and just started giggling. There is actually a sentiment on the original image, but I decided to remove it since it didn't work for what I was doing. Chris Boyd, the designer, has a great blog and website full of characters. Images are all copyrighted, folks, so these are personal use only unless you want to talk to him about buying a license... and no, I have no affiliation; never even heard of him before today. But he draws lots of cool zombies and other characters.

Supplies used are all Close To My Heart, unless otherwise noted.
  • Textured cardstock in Ocean and Topiary
  • Cardstock in Desert Sand and white
  • Stamp pads in Ocean, Topiary, Desert Sand, Tulip, and Grey Wool (used those last 2 together on the brain)
  • Ocean Organdy Ribbon (discontinued)
  • natural hemp
  • Sans Alphabet stamp set
  • Noted backgrounds stamp set
  • water brush
  • buttons from my stash
  • Cricut with Design Studio to make the shaped element (Provo Craft)
Hope you enjoyed my little bit of insanity for today! you can shop for any of the CTMH items right on my website at
