Happy Halloween!!!!!!

Check out the site for more details

Happy Halloween!!!! I'm doing yardwork today. Then it's trick-or0treating tonight with my puppy and rose fairy. Here's the card I made for this week's Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential. This week we were all about words! I chose to use this Halloween paper from K&Company I found on sale at my local SS. The image is from prickley pear, our sponsor this week, it is embossed with iridescent ice and super sparkly IRL. It's a bit hard to see in the photo though.
Have a happy and safe holiday!!

Layers of Color Guest DT

I just uploaded this card and realized it's October 27th!!! Could anyone tell me where this month went?? WOW! I'm not ready for November yet! I always find it's the fastest month around!
But there are tons of fun things happening in November. One is the layers of colors release party on the 14th and 15th!! Laura from LOC will even have party favors for everyone who pops over!
I'm very excited to be guest designing for LOC for the next few weeks up to the party! This is my first card using the Reindeer waltz set. I embossed this gorgeous reindeer using copper embossing powder. I paired that with burgundy and caramel from SU. I also used my new snowflake punch, added some primas, ribbon and a few eyelets.

Halloween One Sheet Box

It's Saturday, so it's time for another Saturday Spotlight challenge!!!! This week we're all making Halloween treat containers! Perfect for the upcoming holiday! When it comes to bags or boxes, this one is my favorite!! It's called a one sheet box, I found the instructions HERE on SCS. Besides being super cute, this little bag is one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 card stock with NO CUTTING!! It's just 4 score lines and 4 folds! Quick and easy just what I need when it comes to boxes! I used my spider wheel. It's hard to see in the photo, but I put 2 eyelets on each side of the bag to loop my ribbon too. That way there is NO adhesive either! Did I mention this was easy??? The image is a digi designed by Robin Willis. I stamped it twice so I could pop the spider up on dimensionals and color the first layer orange. Check out the rest of the treat containers from the other divas, tons of awesome ideas!!!

Not sure if it's blogger or what, but she seems a bit fuzzy to me in this post, I'll try a different picture in a bit. I used my textile CB folder along with some primas, a ribbon and a charm to dress her up. The paper is from a DCVW sparkle stack. Stamp something isn't the only challenge blog celebrating Halloween this week, here are the others.....

Good morning!!!! I wanted to get this post in early today as it's supposed to be gorgeous!!! And I have to take my little one to the dentist today too!!
This is one of the newest images from Whimsy stamps! I love this pups cute little face! I used the sketch from Papertake Weekly as a starting point for this one. I also wanted to enter it in Whimsy Stamps embossing challenge, so I embossed the kraft layer. The designer papers are basic grey. I also followed the recipe from Inky impressions 1 image, i sentiment, 3 embellies(flowers, brads, hodgepodge), 3 layers(square layer, circle layer, image layer.)
The sentiment is Whimsy as well.

I wanted to share my Doodle Palace card with you today. I am so excited to be so ahead with my Christmas cards this year!!! Normally I'm down to the last minute as I like to send mine early in December and include a CD. So this is great!!!!
I used the new image from Doodle Palace of these adorable gingerbread kids! They are also releasing 2 sweet little penguin images!!!

Well he's not spooky, but he sure is cute!!! I just had to use him!!! And I bet he'd go bump in the night!!! That's the theme this week at Cupcake Craft Challenges along with lots of others!! You can really tell Halloween is on its way! We are actually picking up costumes tonight. We thought about doing it yesterday but it was SNOWING and rainy and cold, so we just stayed in for some family time instead. We ended up tackling quite a few projects too, most notably the junk drawer!!!! I hope everyone had a fun weekend too!
I think the highlight of the weekend was taking part in a little neighborhood parade for Paige, who is home again!! You all touched that family's heart, thanks everyone!!! I didn't have my camera, but a few people said they'd email pictures, so I'll pass those along to you when I get them.

Stamp Something blingy!

So it's SNOWING here today!!!!!! I couldn't believe it! Looks like I'll be building a fire after I finish this post!!
Onto the card! I made this one for my neighbor Paige who will be coming home this weekend!! Anyone who would like to send her a welcome home card please do! Just email me for my address and I'll deliver to Paige. I received a thank you card from them yesterday and wanted to share parts of it with you as you all deserve much of the thanks! They said mail call was an anxiously awaited part of the day that brought a smile to Paige's face. And that was what they ALL needed! So hugs to you all who helped out! You can also still visit Whimsy Stamps to purchase a Teddy for Paige image, all proceeds from this image go directly to Paige.
I used rose red, choc chip, and Bermuda bay on this one. I think I needed to center my circle a bit more or have used smaller flowers. Not sure which, maybe both. I may fiddle with it a bit before I send it over. My bling is on miss bitty's antennae, flower and wings. For the sentiment I stamped "welcome ba" from a welcome baby stamp then added the "ck" myself. Did I mention copics are the prize of the week again at Stamp Something????? A set of 12 Spicas!!!!
Paper Play...fav embellie (primas!!)

Cupcake Craft Button Challenge

Good morning!!! The girls have off from school today so we are getting ready for a playdate. But first I want to share my Cupcake craft challenge card for the week with you. Our challenge was to use stitching and buttons. I did faux stitching since I'm not yet brave enough to try real stitching on a card and I added a few buttons as flower centers. The image is a freebie from Mo's digital pencil. I just got a few new purple copics, so I really wanted to test them out! It's a bit hard to tell from the photo, but I popped the little pup up on dimensionals.
Lots of Halloween and fall challenges this week, so a real easy challenge card.....

Saturday Spotlight with HIdden Potential #2

It's time for Saturday Spotlight's 2nd challenge. This week we needed to dress a tree. Our sponsor is DRS who donated 2 images for the DT to play with this week. When I heard the challenge I knew I wanted to make a tree out of a snowflake stamp, so that's what I picked! I followed the sketch from Sketch and stash and used a bunch of my retired Christmas papers. I added a bunch of rhinestones to dress up my tree. The trunk is 2 pieces of ribbon. I added some chunky glitter because I couldn't get the bottom to look right and well you can't go wrong with sparkle! To go along with Cute Card Thursday's so charming theme I added a snowflake charm as the star of my tree top. The whole tree is 3D so I am entering it at Pile it on as well. Finally I entered a new to me challenge, scrappy frogs who had a tree challenge! Hope you can play along this week!!!! Here's the rest of the gals!

I looking for some help here. For those of you who read my last post, I mentioned briefly of the condition of my neighbor. She, Paige age 13, was in a serious boating accident a few weeks ago and just had part of her arm amputated. The doctors are working to save the rest, but are unsure how much they can do. Here is a link to the article that describes it more in detail. Included in the article it mentions they've run out of room for flowers and stuffed animals, but cards are welcome. Well my family and I really want to something and I thought amazing cards from all you wonderful ladies would be just what could cheer Paige up. She is one of those girls that ALWAYS wears a smile.

I'll be offering up some BLOG CANDY for anyone who mails a card either to me to hand deliver or directly to Paige using the address from the article.
Cards can be mailed to Paige Welch at Boston Children's Hospital, 300 Longwood Ave., Boston, MA 02115.

All you need to do is make a card for Paige, post on your blog, leave a comment here and mail it out. Not only will you then be entered in the drawing but you'll also be helping a very sweet girl and her family through a very hard time. I'd love to reach 100 cards for her!!!
