Happy Halloween!

Sorry I have been MIA... I have been super busy! I went Xmas shopping last weekend with my girlfriends to PA. (no tax on clothing there). This week has been super busy at work and home. The grandbabies were over last night and I had brought them home a craft from school to make. Aren't they so darn cute?! They (Bella and Augie) are coming over in a little while to carve pumpkins (nothing like waiting til the last day...) and have dinner here before going trick or treating. I made pumpkin chili in the Crock pot. Yummy! And I made a pumpkin pie for dessert! I guess I am trying to get all my pumpkins in for the holiday! LOL! I hope everyone is well and I will get around to all your blogs starting tomorrow when I have a little "breathing room" time. Happy Halloween everyone! And don't forget to set those clocks back tonight!!!

C4C7 Challenge

I love these Gorjuss girls stamps! This card was done for the Crazy 4 Challenges this week. After posting this here and going back to the Crazy 4 Challenges blog spot I noticed that I forgot to put in the strip of paper near the bottom of my stamped image... Yikes! Oh well... I still liked the sketch even if I didn't copy it correctly! LOL!

Last of the Halloween Cards?

This didn't start out as a Halloween card...but something happened to it along the way! I think a magic spell was cast upon my mind and it grabbed this digital image to use instead of the one I originally planned! LOL! Oh well! This will be the last of the Halloween cards for this year as I don't need anymore.'s time to start on other holidays! Have a great Sunday everyone. I am off to church and will be back here later today hopefully.

Cricut Farm Bingo

I used my Cricut to cut out all of these cute little images. We made these bingo boards for our 4 year old classroom to play before our trip to the Farm next week. We laminated each board. I can't wait for our classroom to play with them! We made 20 different boards, so there were a lot of little images to piece together!

Welcome Baby...

I did this card for my nephew and his wife (my niece in law?) who are expecting a baby in January. My daughter and I will be hosting a baby shower for them next month when they come home to Buffalo for a wedding. It's kind of hard to do a shower for someone who doesn't live close by and who will be flying home. (They live in Nevada). So... I asked her to register at stores where I know people can buy gifts at this end and she can pick them up in Nevada when they return home! Hopefully it will all work out! I did tell her to bring an extra suitcase...just in case there are some gifts at this end...(homemade gifts, etc.) So... now to plan the decorations, menu, etc.! I sure do love giving parties!

Stamptacular Challenge #28

I found this challenge by seeing it on one of my friends' blog...Gram's Place.

Stamptacular Sunday Challenge has a cool challenge this week.Your challenge is to use a known cartoon character in your card. I love the Smurfs and this brings back many memories of watching the Smurfs on television with my daughter many "moons" ago! My image is a digital image so I hope it counts as a stamp...? Just in case it doesn't, I used an SU stamp of an apple outline and stamped it over my sentiment! I used Sharpies and Prisma markers to color it. The sentiment is from the Character Cafe. I used Making Memories dp and brads. Aren't those brads so cute?! I picked them up last week at Big Lots for a buck! Sometimes you can find some treasures in their card/scrap booking section.I sure feel like I did! My solid card stock is from SU. Thanks for looking!

Stamp Something & Crazy 4 Autumn Blessings

Stamp Something's
challenge this week is to use brown as your primary color.Their prize for the winner is a 12 marker set of pastel COPICS! Does it get any better than that??? Crazy 4 Challenges(C4C6) asks you to create a card using a thankful theme so I am entering this there also. I used this circular image from the Cutting Cafe along with the sentiment for the middle of the circle. My leaves and pumpkin are digitals from Modern Sugar Blvd. The DP is Miss Elizabeth. I colored the brad with my Copic because it wasn't the right color. My images are colored with Copics also. I used my chalks to put a little color inside the circle.The ribbon is from some yarn I bought a few years ago at the Dollar Tree. Thanks for lookin' and don't forget to leave some lovin'!

Vee's Sketch Pad Lucky Week #13

What a great challenge over at Vee's Sketch Pad this week! You need to follow the sketch and do a Christmas card. So I thought I would give it a go! My image and sentiment are actually from an old Christmas card that was given to our family last year. I saved a few card fronts thinking I could recycle the images! The snowflakes are stickers. The cardstock is from SU and the dp is from Making Memories. Thanks for another great sketch!

Robyn's Fetish is where I found this cute digi image for this weeks' challenge. The Midnight Madness challenge this week is another good one! Go on over and check it out! I've used Target $1 spot paper for this card and copics and sharpies to color.I used a Martha Stewart loop punch to do the edge around the image.Sorry the image is a little blurry...
I sure seem to be on a Halloween kick lately... but with all of these cute images I just can't seem to keep away from Halloween...LOL! Leave me some lovin'!

Halloween is coming...

I did these quick cards using a couple of digital images from My Grafico. The cute little bat and the sentiment are from My Grafico.I printed the bat twice (got to love digital) and then popped him up and bent the wings to make it look like he was flying. The pumpkins are from Modern Sugar Blvd, and I printed it twice, cut out one and popped it out in front of the first one.
It's been mighty quiet around the Blvd. for the last couple of weeks, hopefully it will liven up again soon...
I used stickles on the sentiment and my cool gooey punch from Martha Stewart. The dp is from Target's $1 spot for both cards. Hope everyone is off to enjoy their long weekend. We will just be sticking close to home and doing things that need to be done around here :( Last year we were in Las Vegas for my nephew's wedding. I can't believe it will be a year already!

My pumpkins are from Modern Sugar Blvd. and my cute little witch is a digital from the very talented Mo Manning over at Mo's digital pencil too! . She was a freebie over at SNR for her followers. I have used Miss Elizabeth dp and Michael's cardstock. Copics and glitter pens to color. So... let me know what you think!
