A Batty Halloween Card

Here’s a Halloween card for you today.  I love the bats in the Googly Ghouls set.  I cut three of them out and then popped them up on dimensionals for this card.  I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig for stamping the chevron stripes from the Border Banter set.  It was really easy to get them lined up that way.

Well, we made it to the State Fair yesterday.  My little one was a trooper and even though I could tell she still wasn’t 100%, she kept up with everyone else and had a good time.  Once we got home, my oldest said his tummy really hurt.  Hmmm…wonder if that was due to the Fletcher’s corny dog, the fried cookie dough, the red velvet funnel cake or the sweet potato tornado fries that he had???  😉

Have a great Tuesday, which will feel like Monday to me since yesterday was a holiday for us.  Thanks for stopping by!

Birthday Ribbon

I haven’t used one of my favorite sets, Blue Ribbon, in a while so I pulled it out today.  This stamp set makes me think of the World Spectacular designer paper because they just go together so well, so I pulled it out too.  The designer paper made me think of one of the stamps in the Border Banter set, which was on my desk, so I used it on this card too.  (Does anyone else with small children think this post is starting to sound like If You Give a Pig a Pancake) 🙂

Enjoy your Friday!  Thanks for stopping by!

I Know It’s Way Too Early for This, But…

I know it’s way too early for Christmas cards, but I’ve had these Christmas papers, stamps and dies staring at me for a few weeks now since we pre-ordered from the Holiday catalog.  And when I saw the sketch over at the Freshly Made Sketches site and the banner challenge at The Paper Players site, I just instantly knew what I wanted to do with it.  And that so rarely happens to me.

So you see, I couldn’t help but make a Christmas card today.

I covered the snowflake with Dazzling Diamonds glitter and the Very Vanilla looking card stock is actually the Shimmery White card stock — I just can’t get it to shimmer for the camera.

This was a fun sketch and it was fun to make a square card again.  I don’t make many of them.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Here’s a Halloween card for you today.  I love it when Stampin’ Up! offers kits that make my stamping life easier.  The Ghoulish Googlies Designer Kit allows you to make some really easy and cute projects.

I also used the Border Banter stamp set to make the sentiment and the pattern at the bottom of the card.  I just cut the strips in half and pieced them together.

I chose the colors for this card from the Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge for this week.

Well, I’m ready for a relaxing Saturday with some college football thrown in, lots of laundry, and hopefully some stamping time too.  Enjoy your weekend, and thanks for stopping by!
