Happy Halloween

 Happy Halloween!  Today I would normally post a picture of a halloween card that I made.  Well I have either sent the one card I made or did not complete other cards I started so I decided to post pictures of the 2 cards I received in the mail.
This card was made by my friend Cass.  I just love this sweet little witch on this card.  Definitely a cute card.
This card was sent to me by my friend Kathy Curry.  She is just so talented with her copic coloring.  I love the sentiment on this card. 

So I hope everyone has a safe Halloween.

Twisted Tuesday Challenge

Today over at Twisted Tuesday Challenges, they are having a "Anything Goes" challenge so that should be lots of fun.  I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with on this challenge.

I chose a birthday card that I made for my mom.  The image is from Our Daily Bread Designs.  I know my mom will be excited to get it.

Anything but a card

Today over at Twisted Tuesday Challenge, we are having a challenge to do anything but a card.  I decided to make these darling little halloween treat packages.  I made several for my nieces and nephews and co-workers.

I started with a piece of black cardstock 3 1/4 inches x 9 1/2 inches.  I then scored it at 3, 3 1/2 and 7 1/2 inches. I scallop punches the side that was the smallest.  I then cut pieces of designer paper 3 x 2 3/4, 3 x 3 3/4 and 3 x 1 1/2 inches.  I then cut two holes at the top for my ribbon and added what dies I had at home from matching designer paper.  The dies, stamps and sentiment are all from Papertrey Ink.  This went together very fast and  I think everyone will enjoy the reeces pieces I put in the little bag.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Today's card was made using the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  I love this sweet little witch.  She was a challenge card from a group I am in on SCS.  I had also received some goodies from a group of gals in SCS and was able to use them in this card.  I just love these bright colors for Halloween.
Thanks to Linda for this cute image.

Goodbye

Today I made a card for a friend who is moving on at work.  She has worked with us for several years and I have truly enjoyed her friendship.  Not only is she a sweet person  but she also enjoys scrapbooking and card making like I do.  Lauren, I wish you the very best as you move on to new challenges.

I used the seed packet stamp from Two Paper Divas.  I also cut out an oval spellbinder die and stamped the flower image (also from Two Paper Divas).  I just love the way the card turned out.  It could be that I love the color pink and black background just makes it stand out more.

I decided to enter this card in the following challenges.
Kenny K's Krafty Krew - Think Pink
Glitter n Sparkle Challenge - Buttons and Bows
 My Time to Craft:  It's Recipe Time - 1 Ribbon, 2 Images, 3 Papers

Boss's Day

Not sure how many people celebrate Boss's Day but it is Tuesday, October 16.  I offered to make a card for our department to sign.  I used the Jar stamp from Two Paper Divas.  It is endless what you can do with a jar.  One of my favorite embellishments to add are the MFT rolled flowers.  I would put them on every card if I could.  I decided to enter this card in the following challenges.
Craftymess Challenge Blog - Anything Goes
TotallyPaperCrafts - Make Your Own Flowers

Be sure and check back later this week because I will be posting a picture of another card I made for a friend.  I just don't want to spoil the surprise for her.

Christmas Tray


Gee - can we really think Christmas already?  I finally completed my Christmas tray for a class at Remember This Remember That.  I cut the letters out with my cricket and then used several dies that seem to work perfectly for this tray.  I decided to have each letter coordinate with something that starts with that letter.

I had to take this picture with my cell phone because the batteries had died on my camera.  I am amazed it took that great of a picture.  I have never tried that.  The Candle, Holly, Tree and Mittens are from Two Paper Divas digital sets.   One is Winter Time and the other one is Christmas Collection which is not quite available yet.  These are some great sets.

This class will be on Friday, November 2 from 1-3pm.  Come join me if you can.

Twisted Tuesday Challenge

I am so excited to announce that I have been chosen to be on the design team for Twisted Tuesday Challenges.  They have some of the best challenges around.  What fun I am going to have on this design team. 

Today's challenge is a farm theme with the twist to add grass.  Well what an easy one for me because my sister raises chickens and I had to make a card for her.  I found some paper that looked like chicken wire to me and added the Rustic Rooster from Stampin Up as the image.  The grass was one of the Martha Stewart fern punches cut apart.  I love the way each branch looks like grass.

So lets see what everyone else can come up with for this challenge.

Great news

Well what a fun weekend I have had.  I went to the CKC Convention in KC with my sister and some friends and had a great time.  I also was able to meet some great ladies from Indiana.

My poor blog has been so neglected because of vacations and projects behind the scenes that I have been working on.  Today I am posting a picture of some bookmarks I made for a swap.  I used the PTI bookmark stamp set for these.





And now the great news.  I have been selected to be on the design team for Twisted Tuesday Challenges.  What an honor it is to be part of their team. 

Be sure and check back on Tuesday for my first card made for the design team.
