Happy Halloween


 Just wanted to stop in and wish all of you who celebrate Halloween, a Happy Halloween!
Have Fun! I love Halloween, always have always will! When I was younger my best friend and I would start planning our costume as soon as school would get out. We could not wait!
 For Timeless Tuesday you needed to add plaid or houndstooth.
 I din’t have either so I just made my own kinda funky plaid.

Merry Monday

Second Post for the day!

Use a Santa on your card! 

I should have brought the letters down a bit.
Hello again! I used Santa from Serendipity Stamps, don't you just love this one! My Alphabet is Wplus9 , I stamped the red and white stripes with my Pinstripe Backgrounder from Waltzingmouse Stamps( love this one )! The Christmas is from Hero Arts, and Lil Inkers circles. Quite a collection!

This is a card that I posted this morning for a split second then deleted it when I missed the deadline. I wanted to get a better picture than the one I had with my iPhone because it was in the early morning.
It was going to be for this Muse here and for Darnell Knauss card. 

For this card I use Stamps by Judith and A bit of glitter.
Papertrey Ink Ribbon

Thanks for the visit.

Make It Monday/ Less is More

Use string or twine.
Thanks for the heads up Ardyth!

Good morning! Hope you had a great weekend. We had two of our granddaughters for the weekend. They are just too much fun. They didn’t want to go home. They asked their parents if they could live here. I think is safe to say they had a great time as well. 

I had these snowshoes completed and siting on my desk and today they found a home on this card.  This weeks make it monday we were asked to inlay dies. I love inlaying dies. Theses also have a back on them and were kinda thick , this was the perfect solution. 

Everything is from papertrey Ink 
Two Feet Deep Stamp Set and dies!
 but the :Cuttlebug embossing folder

 I was going to post the three cards I made but decided to do the other two in a bit, one didn't make its deadline. 
Thanks !

Papertrey Ink Oct. Blog Hop

Welcome to the Blog Hop. We were asked to make 5 tags!

I used Winter Hills and Tag Sale #8 Die Collection 
On the first tag.

You can go HERE if you haven’t seen how I make these
 gift card holder tags.

The snowflake below is also a coaster. It is two snowflakes
 fused together. I make them in sets.

I love using this Papertrey Ink - Rustic Wreath Die 
So many ways  to use it!

Keeping it short as there are lots of tag to see. All products are from Papertrey Ink.Only a few papers are from a craft store. 

I had this post all completed and then could not find it …so I had to do it all over again.!

Thank you so much for stoping by and taking
 the time to leave a comment .

Welcome to another Serendipity Stamps Challenge.  This time we were asked to make the sentiment or quote be the focal point of our card.  EASY!!! This Merry Christmas is one of the most elegant stamps I have ever seen . Otherwise I would have chosen a 
quote by Mother Teresa

You cant see it very well but I heat embossed the sentiment and in person it has a nice shine. I used some paper from Lost and Found. Cut the paper on an angle and added some clear sequins. I like the way it turned out. Easy for mailing, without extra postage!  

Hope to see you make a card and have a chance to 
win 20$ off your order.

Make it Monday Wreath

Edited to add name of top layer of wreath!
I forgot that I used patterned paper on the top layer.
This wreath looks great cut out with patterned paper!

Melissa Phillips Sure knows how to make a card look gorgeous! 

Hello! I only ordered the die for this wreath as I thought it was going to be great on its own. Glad I did!
The glitter is showing up looking large but it is really super fine, must be the bright sunlight in the living  room. This wreath has 4 layers , then I adhered it to a piece of vellum .
 I know I am behind in my commenting and I hope to get to that today. Sorry!
Hope you have a blessed week!

Take Three: Fall Stamp Set
 paper is from Papertrey Ink
 and DCWV for the top layer, its old Midnight Spell

WMS PJ Party and Cas-ual Fridays

  If you are looking for the owl die hop : Click HERE

 I love the way the rope circle fits around this Gracie stamp, gives it a bolder look!

I chose the first : Challenge 1 - Greenish Halloweenish  

I think this box would look great in patterned paper or stamped before you adhere the tape.

No cutting just fold and a bit of tape.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great weekend!
