Happy Halloween

All of the stores are getting out their Halloween items. I still need to get out my Fall decorations and put them all over my kitchen.

Crafty Catz - Halloween
Craft for the Craic - Autumn Project
Make My  Monday - Autumn Colors

I love this candy corn dog by Impression Obsession. I used the Lawn Fawn magic slider die cut. I colored it with Copic markers.

Thankful 4 U!

Since it's almost October, I am on the "prowl" to find anything and everything pumpkin flavored. I love it all!!  I decided to make this cute pumpkin pie card for my sister this year for Thanksgiving since she loves pumpkin pie (and anything else pumpkin flavored as much as I do).

I didn't have a wreath stamp but I do have a "vine" stamp by Right at Home and stamped it all around in a circle to make the wreath. I saw something similar around Halloween that had candy corns all over the wreath (maybe Lawn Fawn?) and that brought me to my idea with pumpkin pies all around it. I lightly stamped Happy Thanksgiving in Spiced Marmalade onto the orange cardstock so it wasn't so plain.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Make My Monday - Autumn Colors
Always Fun - Fall Colors
Dream Valley - Autumn Colors
The Crazy Challenge - Autumn
AAA Cards - Autumn Colors

Cards in Envy - Easy as 1, 2, 3

For this week's challenge at Cards in Envy, the challenge is Easy as 1, 2, 3 ... You can see the challenge here. All cards must fit into a standard size envelope for easy mailing. 

I love this cat so much!!  Isn't he just the cutest???? I stamped him on watercolor paper using Ranger Archival Ink and then I colored him using my Tombow markers with water. I inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Oxide inks and stamped the sentiment in the same matching ink.

I hope you will join our challenge at Cards in Envy.

It's your birthday? Alpaca my party hat!

I just got this stamp set today from my stamp store. I love it!  I came home and made this birthday card for a friend's birthday that's in 2 weeks. The alpaca comes with 4 different faces you can add to him. Funny huh?

Hello There!

Bird stamp by Impression Obsession
Sentiment - unknown

I made the background stripes using my Peerless watercolors and water.
Just brushed on different colors and let each one dry
before doing the next stripe. I am sending this to a friend
who is having knee surgery today.
I hope it cheers her up!

I'm entering this in the Rainbow challenge for Paper Minutes
