My Pretties

Hey Ya'll! I just finished this last Halloween card and I thought I would go ahead and share with you. As you know, every "good" witch has her pretties, her "needfuls", things she just couldn't live without! No exception here inside the witch's house! Pretty basic stuff. I did alot of inking on the purple goop in the kettle and on the broom. Added some glitter glue to give it just a touch of bling, and google eyes to the cat and frog. Don't you just love the frog's eyes! I guess it's a girl frog, and the cat is male. Of course "Jack" is just crazy! Added some of those cute little spiders and called it done. Thanks for peeking!

Hello evryone! Whew, I've been so busy lately the time has slipped up on me! Just a quick post for a quick card.I really just let the paper work for me on this one. I glitter glued the spiders and the web border. Added some glitter to the web strands on the paper, and finished it off with some alphabet stickers. It was really quick, but a fun card to make. Hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Hi everyone! Today I made this card that has been sitting on my table for a week! All I had to do was put it together and was too lazy to get up and do it,but I made myself finish it this morning. I'm so glad I did, because it turned out better than I invisioned it... a year ago! The grass is torn Mulberry paper that I bought at the Dollar Tree a couple of years ago. Of course I didn't have the Holiday Cakes cart then, and I love this "spooky" house! I added some bling to the roof line, cut the small fence off the side and added a larger one, some cute little pumpkins, and I think the occupants are ready for Trick or Treaters if they

don't mind the bats! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Primative Halloween

Hi Ya'll! Another catalog inspired card, this one more primative. I had forgotton about this ghost on PDDU until I saw Kimberly at My Craft Spot do a card with it this week. It's so cute, he reminds me of Casper the friendly ghost! I did some inking and popping and added ribbon and a button for the cats bow tie. The top looked bare so I added the brad to a piece of chipboard, glued it to a piece of cardstock and Walla! The bakers twine at the top was also a last minute decision. Hope you like, and thanks for looking! I will be entering this in two challenges at and at
Ghost: Paper Doll Dress Up
Pumpkin: Wrap It Up
Fence: Mini Monsters
Cat: Hand drawn and cut from Color core

Happy Haunting

Hello everyone! I just had to make a spooky Halloween card, and this idea has been floating around in my head for awhile. The witch in the moon! I know it's been done and done,but I couldn't resist, so here's my version. I did alot of inking on the whole thing, used raffia for the broom and sprayed the entire card with glimmer although you can't see it very well. I think it turned out pretty cute. Thanks for peeking!

Hey everyone! Don't you just love Fall! It's my favorite season and I had to pay tribute to the Harvest part of it since Halloween gets all the attention this time of year. This card was inspired by a picture I saw in a catalog! Isn't it funny where we get our inspiration! I used several carts for this card, and spent around an hour just picking out the papers. I did some inking and chalked all of the pumkins with pastel chalks. Added some glimmer spray to the front, and matted the inside with the polka dot paper that is on the front.I am entering this in the Fantabulous cricut Challenge #80, Pumpkins.
