Happy Halloweenie

Hi everyone and Happy Thursday :) Whew, it has been a crazy week and I'm feeling just a tad run down. I'm looking forward to the weekend and some rest :) I have another super fun Halloween card to share with you today so I'll get right to it.



My card today uses this adorable witch and cauldron from the "Brewing Up Trouble" pattern set at Little Scraps of Heaven Designs (LSHD). I love this cute little witch, she is too cute! :) I cut the image out using my Silhouette, put all my pieces together, and then did some doodling with my white gel pen. I added a Peachy Keen face stamp (from the Princess Face Assortment set) for her face. Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is from MME. I added some rhinestones and some roses from Wild Orchid Crafts for some finishing touches. The super cute sentiment is from My Creative Time. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Have a wonderful day and thanks so much as always for stopping by :)

Happy Thanksgiving

Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday :) I have to make this super quick today so I'll get right to my card :)




For my card today, I decided to make a Thanksgiving card (I usually don't do too many of these, but I wanted to change that this year :) ). I decided to use this cute little pilgrim from the Paper Doll Dress Up cricut cartridge. I cut the doll out, did some doodling around all the pieces, and then added that adorable face stamp from Peachy Keen Stamps (this one is from the Princess Face Assortment set). I then created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is from DCWV. The cute sentiment is from Studio G (I got it at Wal-Mart). I added a bow and a rose from Wild Orchid Crafts as well as swirls (punched out with an EK Success punch) and pearls. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. I hope you enjoyed my card. Thanks so much as always for stopping by. See you back here tomorrow :)

Spooky Halloween

Hi everyone and Happy Tuesday! I hope you are all having a great week. I have a super simple and fun Halloween card to share with you today so I'll get right to it.




For my card today, I decided to cut out this adorable "bat kitty" from the Happy Hauntings cartridge. The fancy circle was cut out using Elegant Edges. I created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is from DCWV. I mounted the fancy circle and the cat to the card base using dimensionals. I added a ribbon and bow, three pearls, and a rose from Wild Orchid Crafts for some finishing touches. The super cute sentiment is from Studio G (I got it at Wal-Mart for $1.00). What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Thank you all so much as always for stopping by. I'll be back tomorrow with a fun Thanksgiving card.

Batty Over You

Hi everyone and Happy Monday! I hope your week is off to a great start. I had a bit of a cold over the weekend, but was still able to have a few friends over on Saturday night for some fun and then yesterday, I took it easy and rested. Today I have to give a presentation for work and then I have a crazy week of court the rest of the week so I have a lot of prep work to do. I'll keep this short and sweet and get right to my card :)




I decided to make a fun Halloween Cricut card for today's post using the Simply Charmed Cricut Cartridge and this adorable little bat :) I cut the image out using my Cricut, did some doodling with my white gel pen, and then put everything together. I next created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is from MME. I added a cute little black bow and then my sentiment, which is from Scrappy Moms Stamps. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Thank you all so much as always for stopping by. Have a wonderful day and I'll see you back here tomorrow.

A Pumpkin Bear and Sweet Kittens

Hi everyone and Happy Thursday! :) I hope you are all having a wonderful week. It's been crazy busy for me trying to catch up with everything after being gone a week, but I'm hanging in there :) I have two cards to share with you today so I'll get right to it :)




For my first card today, I decided to use this adorable little pumpkin bear from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs (LSHD). This particular pattern is called "Baby's First Halloween", but for my card, I just left out the cute little pacifier (it's really cute, but just didn't fit with the theme of my card). I cut everything out using SCAL 3.0 and my Silhouette, then shaded around everything using chalk ink. I did some doodling with my white gel pen, then put everything together. The face is from Peachy Keen Stamps (tear bear face parts stamp set). Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is from MME. For some finishing touches, I added some swirls in the corners, which I cut out using an EK Success punch, a bow, and a rose from Wild Orchid Crafts. The cute sentiment is from My Creative Time. What do you think?




For my second card today, I decided to use these two adorable cats from My Scrap Chick (Chubby Little Cats pattern set). I cut both kittens out using my Silhouette, put everything together, and then did some doodling with my white gel pen. I created my card base out of SU cardstock and my DP is from DCWV. I added a bow and rose from Wild Orchid Crafts for some finishing touches. The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps. This card is for my sweet friend Pati, who took such good care of our two kitten fur babies while we were on vacation last week. Thanks Pati!

Well, that's it from me today. I hope you enjoyed my cards. Thanks so much as always for stopping by. Don't forget to stop by this Saturday, October 22nd, for a LSHD Halloween Blog Hop. Have a wonderful day! :)

Ghouls Just Want to Have Fun

Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday! :) Hubby and I spent the last week in wonderful, beautiful Charleston, SC. We had a wonderful, wonderful time. We stayed on the Isle of Palms just 15 minutes outside of downtown Charleston. We saw dolphins almost every day (I've never seen them so close to the shore before). If you are ever in Charleston in September or October, I definitely recommend doing a tour or two put on by the Preservation Society of the historic homes and gardens. SO much fun! It was just beautiful and we were both sad to leave :) I'm hopeful that some day, we won't have to leave, we hope to move there someday :) Onto my card for today.





My card today features an adorable image from My Scrap Chick (the new Ghost Kids set). I cut the image out using my Silhouette. I put everything together and then did some doodling with my white gel pen. I added a face using my Peachy Keen Everyday Faces character assortment stamp set. I also added some "blush" using my chalk. I next created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is from Recollections. For some finishing touches, I added pearls, a ribbon, and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. The cute sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Thank you all so much as always for stopping by. Have a wonderful day! :)

What a Sweetie

Hi everyone and Happy Monday! I hope your week is off to a great start. I have a super fun card to share with you today.




Kristi over at My Scrap Chick made an offer to readers of the My Scrap Chick fan club page to participate in a challenge. She would provide a free cut pattern from the Kawaii Sweet Shop pattern set and we get to make a fun card using it. I received this adorable Cotton Candy cut and I just love it. I cut the image out using my Silhouette, put everything together, and then did some doodling with my white gel pen. I created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is from DCWV. For some finishing touches I added pearls, swirls punched from an EK Success punch, ribbon, a bow, and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Thanks so much as always for stopping by. Have a great day! :)

Paper, Scissors, & Punches . . . Oh My

Hi everyone and Happy Thursday! I hope you are all having a wonderful week. I have a super fun card to share with you today. This is my first post as a new DT member for Little Scraps of Heaven Designs and I'm so excited! :)






For my card today, I decided to use this adorable crafty angel bear (available HERE). I cut the image out using my Silhouette. I ran the cloud through my Cuttlebug using the swirls embossing folder and then I ran her dress through my Cuttlebug using my swiss dots embossing folder. I then put everything together and then added the face using my Peachy Keen face stamps (the nose is from the Tear Bears face parts and the eyes are from the Princess Face Assortment (the pattern comes with cut out eyes and nose, I just sometimes like to change it up and add these sweet Peachy Keen faces) :) I then did some doodling with my white gel pen and then added some Stickles to her wings and to the swirls on the cloud. Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock. I adhered the image to my card base using dimensionals. I added pearls, a bow, and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts for some finishing touches. The adorable sentiment is from My Creative Time. What do you think?

Well, I hope you enjoyed my first card as a member of the LSHD DT. Thank you all so much as always for stopping by. Have a wonderful day and I'll see you back here soon :)
