Switching gears.....

Enough of Halloween! I had to switch gears for awhile...there is only so much of orange and black a gal can take.... I used some of my new SU! papers and cuttlebugged the green background. The stamp is from Stampendous. I colored the image in with my Copics. (Still trying to get the hang of these!) I added these sequins for snow. I also added a little square tab at the top and added my sentiment and ribbon. I'm not sure I am crazy about this card....lately that is how I feel about all the cards I make....I dunno, maybe lost my spark....

Anyway, I am going to Michigan for the weekend for some boating and swimming. Hope all of you have a great weekend!

Continuing My Halloween Theme...and Thank you Simone and Florence!

I am continuing my Halloween theme....I again used my Martha Stewart paper. The B was cut using my Cricut. I stamped the SU! images to create the O's in the word Boo. I added the black glitter to the bat, spider and O's. I got a little creative and added some medical gauze to the B to imitate spider webs!
I was so excited to meet Simone last week. She is such a funny, sweet gal in person! She is such a sweetheart too! She brought all these little goodies over for I "blessed" or what? (That one was for you Simone....wink.) Seriously, I can't wait to get back into my craft room and create with these babies! I am back at school, and boy by the end of the day, I am pooped! I won't have anything to post soon, because I haven't stamped! THANK YOU SO MUCH SIMONE!!!
Many of you know Florence, from Flossie Goes Hi Tech. She is the sweetest person! She e-mailed me one day after I posted a Missy B card. She stamped a bunch for me! Holy Guacamole! I REALLY need to get in my stamp room....I'm going through withdrawal....sigh.... Isn't this card cute? Florence sent it with all the wonderful images! It is the cutest!!! Love this lime green paper! THANK YOU!!! so much Florence!

Another Halloween Card!

Another quick post! Used my new SU! stamps. Love these cute images! I used the Martha Stewart paper and floss. I used my sewing machine too....when in doubt I sew or add glitter and instantly the card is waaaay better! Well I am back at work....too tired to stamp tonight...which is pretty pathetic because I didn't even have kids today! They come tomorrow for 2 hours. This is a good way to tell if I should even bother getting up on Wednesday morning....LOL! I have quite a group, or so I am told by the 4th grade teachers.....I guess I will find out tomorrow!

For whatever reason, Halloween is my favorite holiday. Fall is the best time of the year. I know some people would prefer to live in Arizona or Florida, where it is sunny and beautiful all the time...but I like the change of seasons! Plus, I like fall clothes a lot more than the skin baring summer clothes! Don't get me wrong, I love summer....BBQ's, swimming and such, it's just something about the smell of fall air, candles burning, cozy evenings inside, burning leaves, actually using an oven to cook.....

So anyway, back to this card, I used Martha Stewart paper, bat punch, black glitter, and fence stamp. I used SU! stencil for the clouds and the moon. I think it is fairly self explanatory! Have a great day...(My first day back at work....sigh...)
