Happy Halloween !!!

Here is a close up of the bottom where I used Graphite Stickles and SU's big glitter (???) not sure of the name.

Hello All You Halloweenies ~ This is short because I have much to do in the way of trick or treating...Parties galore and of course tonight's trick-or-treating. This is another one of my 'cheap' stamps from A.C. Moore...I won't go into the making of the card because I do not have time...and if you look close enough, you can see that it is just a simple card without much ado.

Wishing you all a very Happy Halloween and please stay safe tonight :)

Another Baby Card

Here is another baby card that I made for a friend. The bottle stamp is from Rubbernecker Stamps I have had so many orders using this stamp either in pink or in blue, and I just love the cute image. I used SU's Pretty in Pink Cardstock for the base. The pink stripe paper is from a miscellaneous pile of paper I had. I used my Coulzzle to make the oval shapes. You cannot really see it unless you click on the pic, but I used Cuttlebugs "Frills" embossing folder on the top and bottom of the striped paper. Colored the image with my Copic Ciao markers and added the sticker butterfly where I made a mistake. Isn't it grand to have something to cover up mistakes? I then used my SU's Pretties Kit flowers and Swarovski Crystals to add a little bling.

I hope you guys don't get tired of seeing this image as I have more to come, specifically blue and pink.

I am off to Holiday Market today with my sister and her daughter and my daughter...Holiday Market is what we have every year and it is booths of local stores in and out of our area...great for Christmas shopping. They have all kinds of booths from foods, jewelry, sterling silver, children's clothes, women's accessories, etc. We are going to have a fabulous time...I look forward to this event every year. Thousands of people attend and that is the only downfall (I hate being in crowds), but it is so much fun that it is worth it.

Wishing you all a very happy and safe weekend. Don't forget to click on the pic to get a better "see" :)

Halloween Jack-O-Lanterns

Hey guys ~ This is one of the stamps that I bought at the A.C. Moore Store that is closing in our area. They had a huge bin with hundreds of stamps, mostly Halloween stamps and you could buy 10 stamps for $ I bought 10 stamps....I will probably go back to get some more in a day or two. You just cannot beat that price.

The cardstock came from Flourishes
I do not remember the color, sry :( The Halloween paper came from A.C. Moore. I used orange Angel Hair Paper (I bought this years ago on the internet) on top of the purple cardstock and then added some spider stickers and Robins Nest pebbles. I also used the Robins Nest pebbles on the jack-o-lanterns and on the DP paper. Of course the image is colored with my Copic Ciao Markers and set on the Nestabilities Ovals and the ribbon came from Flourishes also.

This was a fun card to make...of course, I think anything Halloween is fun! The weather here in Bama is just the 50's and 60's and you can almost smell Halloween in the air. Hope you all enjoy and have fun and stay safe this weekend :)

Halloween House Mouse

I love all of the images from House probably most of you do. This one made me happy because I was able to make a Halloween card and I have been biting at the bit to get to this stamp. I bought it from Hobby Lobby in the clearance bin for just $2.15...can't beat that deal with a stick :) The cardstock came from Flourishes. The pumpkin paper from Hobby Lobby. I used Pumpkin Pie from SU using my Petite Round Nestabilities. I stamped the image with Brilliance Black Ink and colored him with my Copic Ciao Markers. Then finished him off with Stickles Glitter in orange and green. The corners were blinged with Robins Nest Pebbles.

Hope you all enjoy...Stay safe during this holiday weekend :)

Rubbernecker Baby Boy

This comes from the "Baby" set of stamps from Rubbernecker. Like I said before, I have had so many orders for baby cards and gifts that I have more to show. Although I have to admit that I wish I had more time to play with my Halloween stamps. Our local A.C. Moore store is closing and they have a bin full of Halloween stamps that I have been gathering just for Halloween cards. But I haven't had time to do them because I've been making cards for people who have ordered from me. Then, there are my friends and family who have birthdays and other events that just 'have' to be done. My, little time and so much fun!!

I made this card a while back and cannot remember the cardstock colors, but I am sure they are from SU. I did use my Scor-Pal to score lines, used my Copic Ciao Markers to color, Blue Satin Ribbon from Flourishes
and Swarovski Crystal for the bow on the balloon and a Pearl from the "Pretties Kit" (SU). I also used some stickers from a pack I have had forever...the hippo and the zebra.

Hope you enjoy and have a great weekend !!!
