Great giveaway

Great giveaway over at The Latte Lounge . I don't think I've ever seen anyone giveaway copic markers!

Color Challenge

I made this card for the Pink stamper color challenge, but she asked us to do it in 30 mins. I totally did not do that in time! It took me 10 mins to pick out paper! Also, although I didn't use the Breast cancer awareness symbol, I definitely had that in mind. My BFF is a breast cancer survivor but she doesn't like to talk about it much. I made this card with her in mind but I am still debating whether or not to send it to her. I thought I would use it as a "thinking of you" card with Breast cancer awareness undertones. What do you think?

witchy frog

Ok so I was trying to think of an idea to enter Emma's challenge about animals. I wasn't going to do another Halloween card but I wasn't coming up with any ideas and then I saw my stamps from Scrappy Moms about broom parking and I liked the idea of what if someone didn't heed the advice and got turned into a toad? I don't know if all of that came across( probably not) but that was the idea anyway. Also there was another challenge to use black or orange, but not both. I'm probably too late for that one, but I tried anyway.

something cute

I had this card in my gypsy for a couple of weeks now and then I saw the challenge(at pink stamper) to make something cute. I hope it fits that description. I wanted the nice smile that you see first to be misleadingly cute and then open it up for a little scarier surprise. I hope it achieved that.

The cat that didn't make the cut

So I got a stampin up Halloween stamp in the mail that I ordered from Ebay. I am not a stamper but I thought this little cat was cute and I wanted to try it. So I stamped and colored and picked background paper and mounted it on a tag and then started putting together my card (I hadn't even picked paper or anything because the cat was the main focus) and then I realized that the cat didn't match the feel of the card. Esp after I used the foam eyes in the background and the word "spooky" on the inside cover (which neither were part of the original idea). So kitty ended up hitting the scrap table because he is absolutely the most un-spookiest cat in creation! LOL (too cute to spook? I dunno) Anyway, another day, another project...... maybe.

p.s. I ended up using this spider and web from paper dolls cartridge which the face on the spider was too un-spooky as well but as luck would have it, my peachy keen stamps came in today too and I like how he came out. I also used a Martha Stewart glitter pen that I got on clearance last year after Halloween, I like the effect on the web, what do you think?

Christmas in October

Well my new stamps from Scrappy Moms came yesterday and so I just kinda threw this card together (mostly scraps from previous projects). Not the best, but not too bad for a quick effort. Anyway, I really wanted to enter the challenge at Pink Stamper.

If the shoe fits...

When this idea came to me I thought it would be sassy and cute. It's not exactly what I saw in my head, but its the best I could do with it. The inside background is actually purple, but when I shot it looks blue. The inside sentiment says "If the shoe fits...wear it with style"

Shopping at 3am!

Ok, so when most of the sane world is sleeping I am looking around online at everyone's blogs (I'm supposed to be doing math homework online) and I come across Amanda's blog and saw her projects done with Scrappy Mom's Stamps and fell in love! So I whipped out the overly abused debit card (actually done with paypal, but you get the jest) and indulged myself further (after a earlier trip to Michael's today armed with a 50% off coupon). I can't wait until it gets here! I'm like a kid being tortured by the present under the Christmas tree that I can see but can't open! LOL

Challenge Card

I made this simple card for off the wall craftiness challenge, however, I posted it too late :(
I then found another challenge over at Always crafting asking for a birthday card, so I entered it there. It's really simple, but I like it.

Halloween card

I received Wall Decor and More cartridge in the mail yesterday and I couldn't wait to do something with that skull. I really like that skull, I think I'll have to make it again and this time I won't use glitter paper. I feel like the glitter limited my options in regards to background paper. Maybe I'm wrong, but it seems to me that once you go glitter on a project you can't go back (to unglittered paper that is). Or can you?

Ps. I made the "beware" with blackletter cartridge, I wasn't sure if it would look ok, but I think it did. What do you think?

My Daddy's Birthday card

It just so happens that my daddy's Birthday is on Sept 11th. I made him a birthday card and then I saw that "the pink stamper" issued a challenge, so I thought I would try it. Then as I was working on the challenge card, another card popped in my head while looking at my scraps, then another one that I just left blank, so I think I had a pretty productive night.

Want blog candy?

I blog hopped to this site and entered into this drawing for blog candy, wanna join me?

baby it's cold outside

I made this card to enter in a challenge. I thought the paper that I made the background of the card with was really cute, but when I put it together, I didn't like it as much, but I used perm. glue, so I was "stuck" with it. :(
