This year's costumes!! Michael is Luigi from Mario Bros. fame and Megan is a hippy (Nana's generation) He has a blow up belly and was having second thoughts this morning, that the kids would laugh at him. But, you can see that he got into it after he loosened up. Megan has always loved her picture taken and hams it up for the camera. They were full of stories about what everyone came as in school. Michael is just coming off the flu and he took the costume off and was laying on the loveseat and fell asleep for a couple hours! Of course, they can't wait for tonight and the "getting of the candy and treats". Happy Halloween Everyone.

only Halloween PB stamp last week. I just bought this stamp, which is a stamp called Xmas Hat.
I switched out the Santa hat for a witches hat so I could use it for Halloween. The Papers are K & Company and the Border punch is Martha Stewart. I'm putting together a basket of papercrafts for a charity auction. I'll share some pictures as soon as I get it finished. Have a great rest of the day. Thanks for stopping by. Until later..............

dear, friend Clara in Austin, Texas. A match will never touch the wicks of these beauties! I will be bringing them out in the fall every year from now on. The apples are fake! I made them from a project from a magazine, don't they look good enough to eat! Thanks missy for the beautiful fall decorations, they look so nice on my dinning room table! So good to talk to you tonight and catch up.....love ya.
My Design Team entry is a look into Tilda's kitchen. I made a house-shaped card and cut out pieces of card stock to shingle the roof. The stove and cupboard were new arrivals for me last week from Magnolia, so I couldn't wait to ink them up. Tilda is baking cupcakes and has filled the cupboard with them. I used small white brads on the cupboard drawers for knobs. I used Ranger distress inks on just about everything in various colors. I cut a piece of acetate for the cupboard to look like a glass door. Designer paper used for floor and walls. Wall hangings are stickers. Oops, looks like Tilda has a visitor in her kitchen, do you see him peeking out from behind the cupboard? Cupboard and stove are popped out. Top cupboard and jelly jars are not, so they appear to be sitting on the lower cupboard. This was a fun card to put together. Thanks for stopping by, now go bake a batch of cupcakes, you know you want to!!! Until tomorrow............
Today's card is for the Challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil Too. The challenge was to make anything but a card. I bought these giant silver sparkly snowflakes at Michael's without knowing what I was going to be doing with them. They worked out perfectly to make an ornament out of the Holly Fairy. I colored her with Copics and glittered some parts of the stamp and added the ribbon. I popped the coluzzle circle up on the snowflake. I like it! Hope you do too. Thanks for stopping by. Until tomorrow......

Today's card is for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge (MMSC24) a link to their website is on the right. I have used papers from a paper stack from DCWV from a few years ago and K & Company. Image is from Cornish Heritage Farms. Pearls are Kaiser. Gold leaves are Martha Stewart. Stars, Michaels. Used Ranger distress inks around the owl image. I'm also entering this card in the Cupcake Craft Challenge (http://cupcakecraftchallenges.blogspot.com/). The theme there is Things that go bump in the night. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great rest of the day. Until tomorrow........

Today's card is for the Pink Elephant Challenge #37 a sketch http://thepinkelephantchallenge.com and also for Roses on Paper Challenge, Halloween http://ropchallenge.blogspot.com/ and Cute Card Thursday, Spook Fest. I used the Tilda dressed as a bunny stamp. I colored her eggs like candy corn. The papers are by Debbie Mumm and K and Company. She looks a little intimidated about entering the gate to the haunted mansion, don't you think? Thanks for stopping by. Until tomorrow..............

The rest of the stamps are $ 1.00 stamps from Michaels. The ghost and spider and web are Sizzix dies. Also included buttons with the shanks cut off. The skeleton is a foam with glitter sticker ( from Cathy, thanks Cathy). I love these cards because you can pile all this on one card and still fold it flat for mailing. Hope you have a great rest of the day. Thanks for stopping by. Until tomorrow.............
