Happy Halloween

Some of the little girls in our neighborhood have the best costumes.  The moms make their costumes and they are usually princesses.  Their dresses are so cute and full of ruffles.
 The past two Halloweens I have had band practice so I didn't get to see them.  Looking forward to helping with the candy this year so I can see the great costumes.

Three Little Ghosts

Our sister was here recently.  She is not a card maker but does a lot of other crafts.  I thought she would enjoy making a few cards.  I made this one but she made one for each of her children and their families.

Thirty and Forty

Here are the cards I made for someone turning 30 and someone turning 40.  I remember those days.  I thought I was getting so old back then.  Now I know I wasn't even close to being old and I am sure feeling my age now.

Turning Sixty

Last year I made some cards with numbers on them for special birthdays.  I made a few more this year using a different design.  Here is the one for someone turning 60.

It's All About the Shoes

I CASEd this from my upline's daughter.  She was home one weekend and she and her mom had a girl's night and made some cards.  Mom posted this on FB and since I hadn't used the set yet I gave it a try.  She did use different DSP but other than that I copied just about everything.  Thanks Gina.

My favorite character in Wizard of Oz is the wicked witch.  I thought she was such a good actress so with the green on the card I thought of her.  Who is your favorite character in WoO?

Another Hummingbird

For this card, first I stamped the image.  It is one very large stamp.  There is a matching embossing folder to make the flower stems and leaves pop out.  Next I punched the flowers and sprayed them with gold shimmer paint.  The punch I used is the pansy punch.  The flowers look splotchy on the picture but it shines IRL.

Always 21

I remember there used to be a saying that simply was Always Twenty-One.  I wonder why people used to say that.  This card has lots of shiny gold on it that you can't really see.  The 21 is made out of gold glitter paper and really sparkles.

People always look for certain things on cards.  One thing I am asked for is hummingbirds.  Here are some cards with hummingbirds on them.  I think this is the first time I have posted a card using the lattice die.  I need to use it more often.

Frankie and the Mummy

I have started working on Halloween cards to take to the shop.  This is not the card I am sending to my family but one of these characters is on the card they will receive.  This was such a great set because of it had 5 different characters so I was able to use the set multiple years on my family cards.  This will be the last year I will use it.  I already bought two new sets that I will use the next few years.

October Already

This year is flying by.  Happy Birthday to all the October people, birthstone opals or pink zircons.
