Happy Friday! It's another celebration at Festive Friday's card making and paper crafting challenge and this theme was a wonderful excuse for me to make a Halloween card. However, I used Ellen Hutson's Twirling Flurries background as a magical background - even though it was meant for snow flurries. Mind you, the last time I used it was on this card - to replicate my idea of space :-) I paired it with the Halloween Magic stamp set and the crystal ball shaker die. Here's a sneak peek: As always our INSPO list has many different words that you can... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday. It's the fabulous Ceal's turn to host our Addicted to CAS Challenge tonight and she has a timely one for us :-) Well, as I was making cards for the charity Cards for Hospitalized Kids - it seemed really appropriate to make a fun shaker card using my favorite new Halloween set - Fright Night.

It's the fabulous Joanne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a wonderful theme for us: I don't often make Halloween cards, but I saw this fabulous owl called Fright Night and paired it with a background stamp called Widows Web - both available from Fun Stampers Journey.

I really wanted his eyes to stand out and... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's my turn to host the Paper Players challenge this week and it's a theme challenge. Now... I could have just left this post with the challenge badge. Why? I can hear you asking. Well, that's cos the badge itself is an absolute work of art! Nance really does rock the badges. Now, I don't have many halloween themed sets, so decided to go digging around in My Digital Studio and make a hybrid card instead. I remembered that I had the "Sophisticated Spooks" download and, because MDS allows me to color specific elements within my... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Wednesday. A very quick post for you tonight and I have a card to share using a fun set from the SU Holiday Catalog - Tee Hee Hee. You might remember this card made with Tee Hee Hee. That one was focused on shoes - this one on other parts of a wiches outfit :-) I had seen a card in the new mini with items from this set on a laundry line. I changed things up a little by making the brooms be the posts for the clothes line and I popped the hosiery on the... Read more →
