One Last Halloween Card

Well I made my last Halloween card for this season and it is for my wonderful hubby Dave.  He is very supportive of me and my hobby and I am a very lucky lady.  Of course I am always telling him how lucky HE

I trieda a new technique on this vard....I used my Hero Arts polka dot background stamp with Versamark ink and clear embossing powder.  I really like the effect on the kraft cardstock.  I saw this technique done by Jenn Shurkus.  She is on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog DT.  Their challenge this week is to Get Crafty and Use Kraft so I am entering this card in their challenge.

I am also entering this card over at the Red Carpet Studio's Haunted Mansion challenge.

That is it for this weekend's projects.  I will keep crafting and be back next week with more to share.

Halloween Treat Bags

I love to make treat bags, cards and goodies for my grandchildren and Dave's brother's kids for Halloween.  I like it so much I even make Halloween treats for our next door neighbor's children.  I have been busy all month on these crafts and they are now all finished and mailed out.  I just have a couple of last minute things to add to the crafts for the kids next door but I have all week to do that.  

These gift bags are for my grandsons and I used last year's Halloween collection from Bella Carta to decorate these. They got filled with caskets of candy, spiders, plastic zombies, money and lots of other little goodies that boys like.

I am entering these in the following two challenges:


Thanks for checking out what is new here on my blog.  I really appreciate the comments so please leave me one and let me know you stopped by.


Both Thanks and Giving

I love crafting on Saturday afternoons.  This time of year I have college football on for background noise and I just enjoy myself playing with paper, glue and today I threw in some sequins just for fun.

The stamp I used on this card is from Neat & Tangled and I just love it.  They have a challenge blog called Little Tangles with the current challenge being "Inspired by the Design Team".  I was inspired by this card created by Donna Mikasa....a guest designer on the May 15th blog post:

I just love the way Donna used a polaroid style frame for her shaker so I did that too.

I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge -- Get Crafty and Use Kraft.

Thanks for stopping by.....I will be back soon with some more crafts I have been working on.

Trick or Treat, Smell my Feet

I remember how my brother used to recite this little rhyme over and over and over again the whole month of October.  While it was annoying then, years later I find it rather cute that kids today are still staying it 40-50 years later.  I made this little card for my grandson Cole and tomorrow it goes in the mail with lots of candy, plastic zombies, a wooden casket full of sweets and maybe grandma even tucked in a little money for a comic book.

I am entering this card in these 2 challenges:


Thanks for stopping by my blog tonight -- have a wonderful week.


Stuck On U Sketches New PL Challenge

There is a new challenge up at Stuck on U Sketches for Project Lifers and it is a good one.......use Black-Orange-White on your page(s).

I am still working on catching up and finishing (believe it or not) my 2013 album and this is week #38 from a year ago.  But I keep good notes and have lots of pictures (most weeks) so I can do it.  I actually do not have many more weeks to do before my 2013 albums are complete.  Here is my 2 page spread shown together:

Here is the left side of the spread:

and here is the right side of the spread:

There is a prize that you could win this month and the more challenges you enter the more chances you have to win.  So link up any pocket page layout as long as you used orange, black and white on it and you could be our next big winner!

Boo Buddies

Continuing on with sharing my Halloween cards -- here is another cutie...Drac and Frank or as they are affectionately known on this card "Boo Buddies".  I used this color inspiration board from Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge Blog:

Since I was inspired by these colors I am entering this card in their challenge.  I also used the World Card Making Sketch from Moxie Fab World do I am entering this card over there as well.  Here is their sketch:
