A witchingly wonderful Halloween

Hi again!  Finally, a Halloween card!  It's time for my DT project for Through The Craftroom Door.  Our sponsor this week is The Paper Shelter and I've used the Bewitched Night image.  She was colored with Copics, Prismacolor pencils/Gamsol and chalks!  Plus I stippled over the chalk background with Encore Metallic Purple ink.  The sentiment was a freebie (but can now be purchased in her store) from Create with TLC.  Dies by Spellbinders and MFT.
Well that's it for today!  Stop by the TTCRD challenge blog for some wonderful inspiration!  Also, the Fall issue of Through the Craftroom Door magazine is now available.  I have several projects in this issue, if you would like to purchase a subscription go HERE.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi all!
     This weeks challenge at 613 Avenue Create is Anything Goes but you have the option to use the Create Your Own Challenge chart that I've created.   We are sponsored by KennyK Downloads and I just love this Rock Chick image!  I made a tissue box cover which was rather easy, I used the Back To The Books set from SVGCuts.  The sentiment I typed up.  This is an overdue birthday gift for a friend who is a true Rock Chick  :)

Here is the chart for this weeks challenge
I used image,sentiment,solid paper,die cuts,stickles,glossy accents,bling,ribbon.

Hope you can join us this week or just stop by to see all of the inspiration from the DT and the unbelievably talented ladies who enter every week!

Link up for PINK!

It's that time of year again when our focus is on bringing awareness to breast cancer.  Personally, this is a cause that is close to my heart and I wear pink all year long!  It's the 3rd Annual Link up for Pink linking party which you can find HERE.  You still have time to get some entries in...I'm running behind so I'll have a few posts!

I just love this bear by Tricia Moore of Little Scraps of Heaven and it's a freebie too!  So don't for to join them at the Link Up For Pink blog!

Favorite Little Pumpkin

Hi Everyone!
     I made this card for my daughter, Shianne, to mail from college to my mother AKA Grammy.  When I was pregnant with Shi we didn't know she was a "she" so my mother always referred to her as "pumpkin".  She'd ask "how's pumpkin today?" etc.  And my baby shower was a Halloween party and I dressed as...yup...a pumpkin!  A big round one!  LOL!  Anyway, this Sally character from Sassy Cheryl's Stamps always reminds me of Shi when she was little.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Spooky Sweets set.

This card is for the Through The Craftroom Door Anything Goes Challenge this week.  We are sponsored by Oozak and you could win a $10 gift certificate to the store.  

And "Sally" always has a little ladybug with her...something else about Shianne...she was always my little "lovebug".  I always made her ladybug t-shirts etc.  A nice little trip down Memory Lane!  LOL!!  Thanks for strolling with me!!
