Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! I know this is a little bit early, but I might not have power for the next few days, thanks to Hurricane Sandy. It is raining a lot right now, and the wind is starting to pick up. I pray that everyone on the East Coast stays safe and that we won't be without power for too long!

Here is my Halloween card for this year! The dress, hat, broom, and stars have Stickles added for a little bit of glitter and shine! Stickles are so much fun!

I hope that you have a safe Halloween! Thanks for stopping by!

10 Minute Craft Dash #5

Happy Friday, everyone! I hope that your week went well and that you have some fun things planned for the weekend! Unfortunately, I have to work this weekend. Boo! But, it will be fun after that!

Here is a card that I made for the current 10 Minute Craft Dash Challenge which used these colors:

These colors are so cute together! Here is the card that I made:

This card took 8 minutes and 58 seconds to create. I already had the larger hearts cut out from a previous project, so that helped to save some time. The crowns have some stickle accents for the jewels, too!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend! :)

Lawnscaping #44

Happy Saturday, everyone! Do you have anything fun planned for this weekend? I have a ton of activities to go to! I had an apple festival this morning, a frisbee tournament to watch this afternoon, and golf and go-cart family fun day planned for tomorrow! I can't wait! :)

I have a card to share with you today for the current Lawnscaping Challenge - try a new technique! 

I struggled with this challenge for a while, trying to think of a good technique. Then, I decided to try common techniques that I don't usually use in my cards. So, the techniques that I used were coloring my images with markers and adding Stickles! Here is my card:

I was inspired to make this card after seeing a card from Chari Moss (I think it was from last year). She has some great cards, so check them out!

The hat, socks, and broom were colored with Martha Stewart craft markers. The stars weren't colored because I already had them cut out beforehand. Then, I added Stickles to everything! I should also tell you that I really, really like Stickles and that you'll be seeing them around for a while now! :)

I am also entering this card into the Paper Crafts October 2012 Gallery Challenge! The challenge is to create a card or project that is Halloween related! There are some great cards in that challenge!

Well, thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your weekend! :)

Card Drive for Addison

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to pop by really quick to let you know about a card drive that Kelly is hosting. She is collecting cards for a little girl named Addison and her family. You can read about her story and view the details of the card drive here.

Kelly is collecting the cards until December 20th, and she has some great prizes for those who submit cards! The cards would mean so much to Addison and her family, so starting working on some cards!

I have to go and start making cards for Addison! Have a good evening!

I really wanted to incorporate the dark brown from the barn, and I wanted it to have tons of fall leaves. And of course, you can't have a fall card without a pumpkin! This card feature's Lawn Fawn's "Quinn's ABCs" and "So Thankful" stamp sets.
