Happy Halloween!



Happy Halloween Friends!

We will have trick or treaters galore tonight if
we don't get freezing temps and snow!  Yes, they are calling for
flurries here.  It's Wisconsin, what can I say?

On to my card...
Two super fun challenges helped me with my mojo
today.  First up I was inspired by this sketch 


And can you guess the theme over at CAS-ology?
Ghost!

I started with a stencil from Simon Says Stamp 
that I have been wanting to use.  I taped down the
stencil on some white cardstock and sponged over it with
Orange Peel ink.  Then I cut the panel into a banner 
and adhered it slightly over the DP panel on my card base.
That little ghost is one of my favorites
 from Great Impressions Stamps!  I fussy cut him
out and nestled him in the Circle Scribble
 (die from Papertrey Inkwith a dimensional. The smaller Circle Scribble is the background for my creepy looking sentiment, 
also from Great Impressions Stamps.


A few Rain Stones for a bit of sparkle finish off my card.

Have fun this Halloween and stay safe!

Hey Chick



Hi Friends,

I just picked up some fun very inexpensive DP from Jo-ann.
I'm talking a dollar a pack for 15 6x6 sheets...Plus a 20 percent off coupon...Score!!  So...I just had to use it right away on a Fall card.


My creativity was inspired today by two challenges.


How fun is this sketch?


And...how about this card


The barnyard scene on the DP worked out so well
for the sketch, and Kay's card influenced me
 with the fabulous fall colors, circles, buttons and leaves.

That's all I have time for today....
another project and some laundry are calling me.  :)

Enjoy the day!

Check This Out!


Hello Peeps!

I've got a Halloween-ee funky card to share today.


I used DP from the Simon Says Stamp September Card Kit 
and a couple of stamp sets from Lawn Fawn 
to create  this little masterpiece. (wink, wink).
One is actually a Christmas set.  Note the snowflake eyes (grin!)
I love that all the tiny details in Lawn Fawn sets can work
well with just about any set and season.

The design of my card was inspired by this sketch from


And....the Halloween colors from the latest


I have the perfect person in mind to share
this card with.  Just wanted to let her
 know she is in my thoughts.


A short and sweet post today as
a little Indian Summer hit Wisconsin today
and I just had to spend some time 
basking in the warm sunshine.

Keep a smile on this week friends!
