Hello,  there is nothing like  waiting until the last minute  to  make  Halloween cards...  I am just shaking  my head...

Okay  first is my Happy Ghost...for  all of my purple lovers : )
I used elegant eggplant card stock and so  purple dp  from Debbie Mumm Harvest and Holiday  pad from JoAnn's..I cut the ghost with a Sizzix die  using  white  sparkle card stock  and the fence is  an embossing folder by Sizzix with some  snipping here and there... and some gray sponging to  "spook" it up
 Oh and I used a pencil like stamp  by Judikins from long ago  for the  boos
  And second is  a kitty cat in the sparkle hat... I used a versa marker  all over the hat  and heat embossed with irridescent ice  for some  sparkle. Colored pencils and blender pens were used  on the kitty. I used dp from my stash and bling  too. And the clip is from a challenge envie  along with this image  : )
All is mounted on Pumpkin Pie card stock~ my oldest grand daughter has a cat named Pumpkin  : )  

Now # 3  is for  my sweet  little one year old grand daughter. This tag is perfect for her, so I went with the "sweet"  theme. I started with Only orange Card stock, some  more dp and  a strip from that Debbie Munn's pad, some dp from my stash and a new  tag  from  some thing I just picked up . these lolipops are sparkly : )  I use SU'd  tag punches  .
This  sweet, and sparkly  and full of love...
So  three down  and  two to go. I hope to  have Segment 2 ready 

Thanks for stopping by,  See you all real soon  I hope .

Big Prayers

Today my card is  one  for a special family. A new  baby boy was born with a rare disease... So I am sending  this  with a  BIG  load of  prayers. What  better way  to think big than an elephant, plus  he is so sweet I hope he brings a smile  to these parents...
If you want to read the story , you can here
this group of ladies  is so  wonderful. They are filled with so much  love and their abilities AMAZE me...I am so  proud to join them in yet another story that  needs  love and prayers ..
Thanks for looking...I used  a  3 D  die  cut I have had for a while, isn't  he  just too cute ?  I really had  no sentiment  that I wanted to put on the front, I hand wrote  my words inside  hoping they  could see and feel my heart in those words.

My youngest daughter  came over and  moved a few things around in my craft room...Maybe the new  feel  will help to  jump start my mojo...
I sure hope so...   : )

So til next time,  grab a blanket  and come  for a visit...I do have Apple Cider  just waiting to share it  : )
  November is on the way .   Brrr...

Have you ever  started to work on a card, or a project  and first  just  get stumped  before you get any where and second  get  side tracked by something that  has absolutely  NOTHING to do with what you WANT to work on?  Well  it sure happened to me today. I woke up really wanting to make a particular  card  to submit to a challenge, and I just could not  take any of the beautiful things I have and use them to  create  a card   : (

But  by  accidentally looking at something that was just  across the room,  there went my  idea... I had worked on this small piece a while back  and just never  found the right card to use it with  .
 So was it meant to be for me to create this card???  I believe it was : ) .  After completing it I know without a doubt  who it will be sent to.  It is perfect  to convey some words I have been been wanting to say to a very  dear  lady...

I used cool carribean as the base, and a piece of black card stock that I   embossed with a fiscars  template I added leaf and flower to add some color  and the sentiment is embossed all over to give  the glitter paper  even more  dimension and glitz. And the butterflies, well yes  they are a sign of beauty and life, so I felt that they were just perfect to help carry my thoughts and message .
 On the inside is a smaller card  on a black base  with a few words of inspiration...
I am quite happy with how this  turned out,  though the way it evolved  has me wondering  just what to do next...

Thanks so much for stopping by,  with this cooler  weather maybe I should keep some warm apple cider  ready so we can sit  and visit    : )

Til next time,  SMILE and  make some one  feel  good about their self...
