Happy Halloween

Hi everyone, I am just stopping in to say I hope you all have an awesome day. No matter if you choose to follow the scary mode, or the fun mode of this day, or even if you do not follow the tradition for what ever belief...just know I hope your day is blessed !

The pictures are of something my family did yesterday.
Oct 30 was / is my husbands birthday
( yes I know I am supposed to say "late" husband, but those that knew him, know he was NEVER late and despised those who were ! )

As part of our doing this "together" as we promised, I told our grand children that we would send balloons up to their grandpa, when ever they wanted, so they could send him love... So his birthday seemed a super time to do that. We always celebrated his special day TOGETHER... His family and friends were so important to him...I hope and pray he knows how important he was to each of us, and how very much we love him , and always will .

So another "first" is done, and now on to today...

Happy Halloween

Since my sweet baby grand daughter looks so ready for Halloween, I decided to surprise you all with a recent picture... She sure is a super baby, and gathering love each day from all of us... So now you can go to the update to really see some cards, just thought I would share one of my many blessings

And more Happy Halloween on the way

Hello, and how are all of you ? I have been playing a bit and enjoying the time in my craft let's get to it
First off, is my glittery spider webs, in real life they are very cool, just love the Judikins detailed black embossing powder, it does amazing things ! The bow was from a piece of left over ribbon and my daughters fingers, lol she does bows so much better than I do : ) thanks Krista : )
And the second one was a super quick and easy card, but I had to try out my new Sizzix die...these ghosts are just too sweet, aren't they?? And the fence was from a new pack of Sizzix embossing folder...
Can you tell I love Sizzix??
Plus I used my Cricut...
Now that is really something for me : )
And the third card is my sweet witch flying by... I was trying to use up more scraps and incorporate something from my challenge packet too, so I used a punch to cut out my witch and added the sheer ribbon and BLING ! I thought this dp was perfect since it was so happy looking ...

So there you have it... I hope to start on a few Autumn cards soon, but I still have some Halloween ideas, so we shall see : )

I hope you all enjoyed what I had to share... and I will look forward to all of you stopping back soon... Thanks for visiting me, I know it is chilly out on my FRONT PORCH , so bring some warm cider or hot cocoa next time ...: )
bye til next time ...

October Challenge Cards

Back in the early spring, it was time to choose our month in our monthly challenge group.I was excited that I was able to have October, as Autumn is such a wonderful time of year with beautiful colors and great temperatures... So as my year progessed, and was quite busy in un scheduled events, September arrived and my memory jogged . I could not at that time decide if I wanted to use fun Halloween stamps and embellishments or pretty Autumn things. But my group was so understanding that with my grand daughter being born 2 1/2 weeks early, that my envelopes would not be mailed quite as early as I wanted them, that I decided to send a little ( or a lot ) of both just to say thank you .

So in todays up date I am sharing just the first 2 cards of Halloween design that I have finished, these also have the inside decorated just a little... I will try to get busy and create a few more cards and post a few more in the next several days...

So the first card is done with a special friend in mind, She loves Halloween and purple... And we both seem to be called a witchy woo once in a while...The second is one I thought would be good for a child, fairly basic, not overdone...

And big woo hoos to me, I figured out how to move my pictures, though I thought I entered them in the correct order, they sure had a mind of their own ! But ALL is good... there just might be hope for me

As always thanks so much for stopping by, and putting up with me... I do enjoy my paper crafting along with seeing who came to visit !... Take care, and I will try to get back here real soon with some more cards to look at...

And Here She Is

Wow, where did all of those days go to?? I have been enjoying watching everyone love my newest grand daughter, and watching her and her mommy , my oldest daughter, get acquainted and settled in. She is so precious, and makes some super cute faces, and some down right funny ones too.
Her big sister thinks she is great and her cousins all just love her...And then there is her Aunt Krista, well she is just totally over the moon about her and she has a few nick names already... like "sweetness" or "sugar love " but her Mommy prefers her to be called FAITH
Here are some pictures just to get that all across : )
I have enjoyed being the one to take these pictures, I have had my moments of holding her and loving her,and there are pictures to prove that : ) but just not on my camera .

Since I cannot figure out how to move the pictures, the first is Cousin Cody then Aunt Krista, then Cousin Dustin. Then Big Sister Brooke, Then cousin Ali then Faith and then Mommy and Faith

I will try to get more pics up soon , we have so many...
Welcome to our family Baby Faith...I am ready to love you and spoil you, grandma Soni
