Halloween Cards

For the last couple of years I have made cards for my friend Susanna to give to her kids.  So here are the Halloween cards I made for her this year.   I really have gotten into my stamps and coloring.  She was happy with them and I hope her kids like them as much as the treats she sends.  

I was so happy to see greeting farm had posted this digi.  She is just PURRFECT.   My dtr CAT   likes her even more.   Growing in my coloring with copics.  Used some paper from DCWV and bling.   I also used my Lindy's sprays to give it all a shine. 

These three images are from All That Scraps.  I love CC designs works a they sell both the digi and the actual stamps there.   Used some more DCWV paper.

Thanks for looking.

My Creative Time design team call

Emma at  is having a design team call.  This would be a dream come true for any papercrafter.  She has a wonderful line of stamps and dies for cards, layouts, or any other thing you can put your mind too.   We were asked  to make one project special for this call.   Well lately I have been on a kick and have been using her stamps for all my holiday crafting.   SO I of course had to made a card with my adorable Magnolia image, but then had an idea later for a scrapbook layout of my son's most recent picture he sent home.   So she may fault me for not following directions,   but I am showing 2 projects here.   I made a video just incase you would like more detail.   Thanks for looking, and Emma thanks for the chance of a lifetime,   I love to follow you and will continue to love your stamps.

Layouts for a couple Sat crops at LSH

I love spending my Sat night (when I am not working)  at   they do a virtual crop thru tiny chat.   Got me a web came and love it.   So much fun to see and talk to the gals from all over.   They usually have a layout challange.   This is perfect for it gives me the chance to catch up on some photos.   Going to have to start doing digital scrapbooking for my oldest though, he sends me so many pictures I can't keep up.   He just went to Greece, and I am no where caught up with Bahrain.  (good thing he is there for 18 months, I will have a chance.)   So one page was done for his book and the other is some old photos of my dtr and hubby.  There was an added bonus to make cards with the left over from the layout, so my dtr and I made some cards for Brad to welcome him to Greece. If I didn't have that silly job (or 2 jobs)  to go to,  I might have a chance of getting caught up.   Oh well, had fun with these.

Altered Headband

I have been watching cynthialoohoo from   She recently was altering headbands.   I won some flowers on the blog hop at lil scrap of heaven and it came with this great big pink rose.   Well I knew what I had to do with it.   My dtr is modeling for me and I will never get it back again.   hehehe   She loved it.    It was easy to do,  just found a headband at Walmart in the ribbon area.   Wrapped some ribbon around the band and hot glued on some flowers and jewels.  Used some trims from Karlas001.   I think my dtr was worth my last bit of these big bling.   Enjoy!!

Altered Birdhouse

I am so sorry for neglecting my poor blog, been a crazy month.   Have alot of projects planned for the holiday season, but going to catch up on some older ones I forgot to post about.    Here is a 1.00 birdhouse from Micheals.  My hubby drilled a hole for me, so I could put some twine thru to make an orniment out of it.   Added some I am Roses  (don't tell but I just ordered 100.00 more of flowers),  a couple little birds and TADA!!  Birthday present for a coworker.   Hope she likes it.     I used some crackel medium,  I think I might have gotten the hang of it down, because it actually turned out right this time.   Really like it.

Hello Kitty

Good Saturday to you all.   I thought I would share something different today.  I made a cake for a friend using my Hello Kitty cartridge.    I dried the pieces out so that it would stand upright.   Everyone loved it and I didn't get to see the birthday girl, but Grandma assures me she will love it.   Also was a great opportunity to use up some more of my bright flowers.
