Taylored Expressions Sketch #122

Well....here we are again...Sunday! Can't believe it!! Today's post is for Taylored Expressions sketch #122. I chose to do my Card this week with a Halloween theme. I have been seeing Christmas cards on blogs all over the place, but not much for Halloween. AND I love Halloween cards!!! I think they are truly my favorites!!
This is the sketch for this weeks Challenge:

It's all summer looking with the cute butterflies SO I changed it up with Fall colors & bats!
This is my card:

I got a new paper pack this week at our local scrapbook store....Oh my gosh!!!! as soon as I saw it I fell in love!!!! :) it is called Halloween in Wonderland by Graphic 45!!!!! If you can.... you seriously need to RUN out & get some as I am sure it won't last long!! The card itself is PTI CS, the lace is from HL, The bats were punched with my MS punch, The back ground tag & the Happy Halloween was made using the Cricket.(dang I am thinking I want one of them now that I have had a chance to play with one) :(  The sentiment is PTI. I believe that's it for that one!!  I have an extremely busy day ahead of me...a very long to-do list so I better get to it!!   Have a good one!!! Thanks for visiting!!!!

Shabby Tea room again!

Good Morning fellow bloggers! Welcome to the weekend!! I have been stalking the Shabby Tea Room again!  I believe this is week 19 already!! As soon as I saw this weeks challenge I really wanted That wreath for my front door!!! Isn't it gorgeous? It is this weeks inspiration for the challenge "In the Garden" you can either make a card with a garden theme or use the colors. I ended up doing a little of each.

This is my card:

I have been trying & trying to learn this whole "shabby" thing....getting better but still not quite there :(
I made this card for my Mom's Birthday. You can't really see it the photo but this card has lots of sparkle!
The beautiful DP is DCWV. The butterflies are also cut from paper from the same stack. I made the pretty little pink velvet flower :) The gorgeous lace is from HL as well as all the pearls. The yellow ribbon is a piece from my stash. That's it!!! HEY!! by the way....does anyone have a link to a tutorial on how to make the shabby bows???? I am having such a time with that!! If ya do could you please leave me the link in the comments box PLEASE!!! I would really appreciate it!! :)

Justrite Friday challenge #27

Wow a Christmas card when it is 115 degrees outside! LOL!!! This is a card I made for Justrite Stamps Christmas in July challenge #27. A really quick & easy one. I love this set as it has a little bit of something for each holiday! My Friend Marge gave me the little Dolli wich is a Martha Stewart product. Also used Snowflake cuttlebug embossing folder some red ribbon from my stash another MS punch, PTI craft paper & a little stickles to finish it off. This is my card:



Hap hap happy Saturday!!! Long long time since my last post :( I have been having other summertime fun. Vacation to San Diego, Company, 4th of July...etc. Today it is about 115 degrees outside so I figure I would just spend my day right here in my Craft room....I missed all my "stuff" I have missed blog hopping around  too. For my first project today I made a little house warming card for my daughter Angie as she just moved into a new place.

Angie has 2 dogs & 2 cats so I figured the sentiment on this card was perfect!

I love this little set! It's from Impression Obsession. CS & ribbon is PTI, DP is Fly a Kite from October Afternoon. The image was colored with copics. That's it! pretty simple but to the point! Thanks for visiting!!
