Halloween Stocking FMS7

It has been a yucky day here in Kentucky temperatures are falling and it has been raining all day. The Weather Channel is predicting a high tomorrow of only 47...YIKES I am not ready for it to be that cold. I came straight home from work and made some cards to brighten my day and help me try to forget that I will be freezing tomorrow lol.

My oldest daughter LOVES Tim Burton films and her favorite is Nightmare before Christmas. When I checked out Rita Wright’s adorable Stocking Christmas card at Freshly Made Sketches I got the idea to try a Halloween stocking in honor of Jack Skellington. I totally cased her card. I used Martha Stewart’s goop punch for the top of the stocking and everything else used on this card is SU. I usually like to make a couple of cards with each sketch challenge I try. On the second card I made for this challenge I used CTMH set Thriller and a CTMH purple jewel for the eye on the skull. The Halloween ribbon is from Michael’s, pattern paper, cardstock and ink are SU. I still have many more Halloween cards to make before next weekend so I will be busy busy in my craft room. Thanks for stopping by!!

MOJO211 Spice Cake

Happy Tuesday everyone!! Guess what…..I am a perfect princess this week on the freshly made sketches Blog. Linda Callahan picked my wicked chick card from my last post. I am very excited and being picked just made my day…actually it made my week!! Thanks so much Linda!!

I have been out today getting goodies for my Halloween treats and I plan to work on them and post pics next week. In the mean time….I hopped over to Mojo Monday Blog to check out the sketch for this week and I loved it. The first stamp set that came to mind is a CTMH set I got from my sister this summer “Find Your Style” and also the yummy fall paper from SU “Spice Cake” I had to change up the sketch a little and place the accordion accent at the top corner instead of the bottom. It just fit better there. I am really lovin’ those accordion medallions so you will most likely see more of them in the coming weeks. Hope everyone has a great Wednesday!! Thanks for visiting.

Wicked Chick

It has been a little over a year since I posted to my blog. I am very sorry for my absence. I have created some over the last year but I was always making it at the last minute and did not take the time to take pictures. I will have to admit that my creativity until about three months ago seemed to have taken a vacation. Then around the first of June my oldest daughter announced that she was getting married October 1. Well I have been paper crafting and have accumulated hundreds of $$ with of supplies over the last six years or so and I need to put them to use!!!! Well long story short….I got those creative juices flowing again. I will post some of the wedding items later on (and pictures of the bride)…for today I am posting the first challenge I have done it forever. When playing around this week on my blog and checking out all my favorite bloggers I came across a new sketch challenge site called Freshly Made Sketches. I fell in love with their sketches and examples from the first click!!!

Its is my favorite time of year…fall. I soooo need to get busy making cards and treats for my friends and work buddies….oh and the little ones at church. These are just the beginning of many more cards I need to make in the weeks coming up.

Paper and ink are all SU, stamp set it CTMH Wicked, punches are SU and Martha Stewart. Thanks for looking and hope you have a wonderful night!!!!
