Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween Everyone! Not only is it Halloween, but I'm celebrating my 2nd blog anniversary! Oh My Goodness! I can't believe that it has been 2 years since I started blogging! This past year I haven't done as many postings as I would of liked to have done, but I'm going to try to do more this coming year!

Today, I would like to share a Halloween Envelope Card  that I made.   I used my WRMK Envelope Punch Board to create the 3" x 4" envelope out of a  6" square piece of design paper that I printed on a piece of Georgia-Pacific Card Stock using a Digi Design Paper from Jessica Sprague -  Crystal Wikerson Designs Too Cute To Spook Collection. The Scalloped Frame is from Jessica Sprague - Echo Park Tricks and Treats Collection that I also printed out and fussy cut.  The flourish that I stamped on it is a Craft Smart Stamp from Michael's.  The cute little girl is from My Favorite Things - Pure Innocence Pretty Pumpkin Stamp Set. I stamped it on Cryogen White and colored it with Copics and Prismacolor Pencils. I paper pieced the blouse, skirt and bow with digi design papers from Jessica Sprague - Crystal Wikerson Designs Too Cute To Spoke Collection. The Happy Halloween is also from the Pretty Pumpkin Set. The October 1st is a Studio G stamp from Joann's.  The Orange Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The Berries and Pumpkin Ribbon are from Michael's. The Leaves are from my stash.

I want to thank you all so very much for stopping by and leaving me all the sweet comments this past year! Each and every one of them are much appreciated!

I hope you have a wonderful day and a fun evening trick or treating!

Big Hugs,

Hello Pumpkin!

Hello Everyone! I hope you all are having a wonderful October! I can't believe that Halloween is only a couple of days away! My hubby and I planted 7 Sugar Pumpkin plants in the backyard and so far we have 7 pumpkins! 3 of them have already been cut off the vine and I am planing on making a pumpkin pie with one of them! I hope it comes out okay! I've always used pumpkin from a can, never from a real pumpkin before! I'll let you know how the pie turns out!

I would like to share with you a cute little Pumpkin Treat Container that I made.  The sweet image that I used is a Heather Ellis Pure Innocence Digi. I printed the image on Georgia-Pacfic White Card Stock and colored it in with Copics and Prismacolor Pencils. I paper pieced the dress using Digi Paper from MyGrafico - Shery K Designs Daisies Collection and the pumpkin was paper pieced with Digi Paper from Jessica Sprague - Echo Park Tricks and Treats Collection. I embossed the orange card stock with a dot embossing folder from Cuttlebug. For the decorative border, I used a Die-namics Die. The flower and leaves are from my stash. The berries are from Michaels and the twine is from the Dollar Store.

 Three little Sugar Pumpkins from my pumpkin patch!

Thank you for stopping by my blog! I'll be back soon with another Halloween creation that I have made!

Have a wonderful day!

Party In Pink

Hi Everyone,  October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and my friend, Jacque Beddingfield, who is a breast cancer survivor, is the co-chair for a Party In Pink Zumbathon this weekend in her hometown of Hendersonville, NC.  Jacque has taken it on as a personal goal to reach as many people as she can all over the world to raise money for the Cause and the Cure of Breast Cancer. This disease effects more than 1 in every 8 women all over the world and many men as well!
Please visit Jacque's Blog, Jacque's Joie de Vivre, to get all the details on how you can help her with this cause that is so close to her heart! Wouldn't it be wonderful to Stamp Out Breast Cancer for Good!
Speaking of stamping, I would like to share a card with you that I made for Jacque back in 2010.  For this card, I used Fairy Dust Tilda, because I thought it would be the perfect image to send pink wishes her way! The Design Papers that I used are Pink Ribbon from Stemmar and Basic Glitter Paper from Best Creation Inc. I added flowers from my stash.  The pink beads on the wire are from Michael's wedding section.  They were on a long garland that I took apart.  I bent them to look like vines and added a heart charm that I found at Joann's.  I also used Petite Scalloped Nesties and an EK Success Arrow Slim Edger Border Punch.
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today and I hope you can take a moment to visit Jacque's Blog as well! I know she would greatly appreciate your support!
Sending Pink Wishes to All of You!
Big Hugs,
