Hi Everyone. Happy Monday. Hope you all had a great weekend. We had a relaxing weekend, did a few things around the house and Lou is now in the garage installing the storage units we finally got around to buying today! Me, I spent a little time in my craft room playing around with Monstermaniacs and Designer Typeset. I'm so in love with this Monstermaniac set and knew that I wanted to create a Halloween card. I stamped the moster, colored him with Copics and then set about chosing a background DSP. Mmmm... that's when I became totally indecisive and... Read more →


Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday. The fabulous Nance has a great theme challenge for us this week. Now.... I realized that I don't have any Halloween Stamps! How could that happen? I was a little flummoxed for a couple of minutes until I remembered MDS to the rescue! However, I couldn't just do a card :-) I thought I'd like to try to make some adult treat bags, place name card and a napkin ring! Let's start with the card. I opened up MDS and chose the Eat, Drink and Be Scary digital stamp. I sized the spider and printed it... Read more →


Hi Everyone. Happy Thursday. I'll be back tomorrow morning with details of the next card drive for charity. So, please check my post tomorrow. In the meantime, I have a card I made based on the challenge across at iSpySketches this week. Of course, I rushed off to look through the previous sketches and found this little beauty. I immediately knew that I wanted to create a Halloween card and new just the right element for the vertical layer. Just one problem..... I didn't want to put something horizontal across it and when you see my card you will understand... Read more →


Hi Everyone. Happy Monday. Today is the last day of my vacation and I made the most of it by spending some quality time with my inks and things! I caught a great color challenge across at Dynamic Duos this week. Now... I hate Tangerine Tango. Hate it. It's way too bright for me. Other people manage to rock this color - as you can see from the fabulous design team and submission cards. Me... I don't know, I just don't have the Tangerine Tango mojo! Now.... having said that.... that's what makes me do these challenges - to challenge... Read more →


Hi Everyone Happy Tuesday. I hope you are all having a great week so far. We certainly are! I was inspired by Ann's great sketch for the Paper Players this week and decided to make another Halloween card using the sketch. One of the latest SU My Digital Studio releases is the Sophisticated Spooks. I saw this great image of the witch in it and decided that would be the focal point for me card. Instead of using cardstock, I pulled out the black lace ribbon from last year and used that as the elements behind the focal point. I... Read more →
