Coloring Down the Lines - A Spooky Treat

I cannot believe that October is almost gone, and November is upon us. Why does it seem that the holidays come so quickly, but the months where there's no holiday, just seem to drag. I guess it's because we always have so much to do during the holidays.

Anyway, this is the last of the Halloween cards ... so sad! I love Halloween, and I didn't get to make as many cards as I had wanted. I was traveling a lot, and of course, working long hours.

If you've arrived here from Robbie's blog, then you got to see the photo we used for our inspiration this week. Unfortunately, I couldn't save it and drop it in my blog for you to see. O well ...

Don't forget to check out Joni's blog after here ...  I'm sure she'll have something fun for you.

Here's my entry for the week. Hope you like it.

When I made this card, I wasn't sure how it would turn out, but I love it. I never thought a plain card could look so cute. It's really cute in person.

Well, that's it for now. Hope you have a wonderful rest of your week.

Coloring Down the Lines - Harvest Moon Halloween

Halloween is inching closer and closer, and one of the most beautiful things that happen during this time is the harvest moon. How about a super moon? Yep, we had one of those already, and I understand that in November, we're supposed to have a super, super moon. WOW. I wonder what that will be like? I can't wait to see it.

Anyway, this week we're still concentrating on Halloween. I love Halloween, and although I don't send out Halloween cards, I sure do love making them.

This is the card I've created for you this week. I had another idea in my mind, but somehow, I just didn't have my mojo on. I hate when that happens. I don't get it too often, but when I do, ugh!

Here's our inspiration ....

Here's my harvest moon card:

If you've arrived here from Amanda's blog, continue on after me to Joni. Everyone has something fun to share, and we have a full house this week.  YEAH!

Stop back for some more posts. I'll have some for you.

Ghoulish Halloween

Our theme this month is Halloween. Each week, we'll have a Halloween card or project to share, so I hope you will stay with us for some "ghoulish fun"!

This week, our inspiration is a simple one.

Now this is a simple picture to use for inspiration, so I decided to make something out of the box for this one. This is what I've created:

I used spooky fun, ghoulish grunge, and jar of haunts stamp sets for this card. I've added a little black thread under the pumpkin, and splashed some halloween enamel dots for interest. Just a bit of ghoulish halloween fun!

If you've arrived her from Amanda's blog, you certainly got some inspiration there. Next up is Joni .. I wonder how spooky or scary she will be with her card this week. You'll have to hop on ahead to see.

I won't be posting next week, as I'm traveling to Nashville for a week, but I'll see you the following week. Please continue to check out everyone else's entries ... you won't be disappointed.

I won't see you next week, as I will be traveling, starting this weekend. I will post some goodies once I get back.

Kind Basket of Wishes

I can't believe it's the end of September. Where did the entire month go? Next up, gearing up for Fall. I love the Fall. I love the colors of Autumn, the smell of the crisp air, the beautiful blue skies, and the long-awaited harvest moons.

When I think of Fall, I think of fallen leaves, apples, baskets, decorations, and the like. We had a nice photo to use for inspiration this week, and I'll share that with you right now.

The photo is soft and subtle with the sun gently kissing the green grass. Don't you just want to take a stroll through the grass and grab and apple or two to munch on? Oh yes, I would.

Well, I decided to use a basket in my card this week. Here's what I've created for you:

The stamps I used here are basket of cheer, and thoughtful branches. Just a little color for the sky and grass, and that's it.

If you've arrived here from Robbie's blog, you started at the right place. Next up is Joni, and I'm sure there's another treat waiting ahead.

Thanks for stopping by, and stay tuned for next month's theme. I think you'll like it.

A Haunted Halloween

I guess you know by now I like Fall and Halloween, almost as much as I love Christmas. So I thought I would share with you a card I made for my library class this past week. It is my favorite one of the three, and believe it or not, it's a "flat" card. Yep, "flat". I did not make the card dimensional, nor did I embellish it whatsoever. As you can see, it didn't need anything. I love it!

I hope you are creating some halloween happiness .. I'd love to see what you have to share. I'm sure I'll be making a few more cards before the end of the month, so keep on checking back.

Have a wonderful tomorrow!

Pumpkins Down the Lane

I just can't get enough of Fall, and I saw this card on Pinterest and knew I wanted to make it. I've altered mine a bit, adding more pumpkins, and shading the sky slightly with marina mist to give it a nice touch for the Fall sky.

Here's the card I made - and although you can't see it well in the photograph, I've added some wink of stella to the pumpkins. Oh la la

I've also added some grass as well and used another sentiment. I like the way mine turned out, and it just makes me want to stroll down the lane by the fence, taking in all the Fall leaves.

Now on to the next card ...

Crazy About Paisley

I've been playing in my stamp room these past few days, and wanted to share some of my creations with you.

One of the new stamp sets I've been wanting to use is Paisleys and Posies. I created this card in no time, using the pretty matching paisley dsp. A touch of copper foil from the matching framelit finished off the card.

Here's what I've created:

The mint macaron and night of navy looks great together. They are very much Fall-like, so I know I'll be making some more cards with this stamp set and awesome colors.

Keep on checking my blog - I'll have some really nice shoebox swaps to share with you from our Sparkling Diva's team meeting this past weekend.

Ciao for now.
