At the last minute

I'm joining the caschristmascardchallenge on the very last day. It's been a fast month with so many things going on and I haven't been making many cards. I love the combination of red and gray that is the theme this month and I really wanted to play. The double tree die is Spellbinders and the stick frame and sentiment are Poppy Stamps.

This card doesn't look like much but it has a special twist. The moon, the windows and the ghosts all glow in the dark. I added Versamark to those things with a Versamark pen, then used Wow glow in the dark embossing powder.  The ghosts are the insides of the B in Boo. I took it in the bathroom and shut the door in the dark to make sure it worked. How fun it turned out.

Candy corn

I always buy candy corn for Halloween. I don't get any kids trick or treating in my neighborhood so I just eat it! It is really my downfall but thanks to Newton's Nook I discovered it counts as a vegetable. Whoopee!

No posts on Wednesday

This week has been so crazy I forgot to post on Wednesday. It has been a whirlwind and I am glad to have time today to regroup. I made my Halloween family cards a while back and don't remember everything I used while making them. If you have any questions just let me know and I will find what I used and let you know.

The felt crow that is sitting on the pumpkin is from Little B. I know that because it is on top of my Halloween "stuff".  

I want to thank everyone for the birthday cards, crafting goodies and best wishes. It made my day so special.

Another Fall card

I made another fall card using the Impression Obsession Fall Leaf  Background die with green mirror cardstock over a white panel. Easy and quick. I don't make a lot of fall cards but since I have a few dies I wanted to use them. I'll feel more like fall when the leaves start changing color. It's really late here this year.

The shine is hard to capture

The bad thing about mirror card stock is trying to get a good picture of it. I embossed this copper mirror c/s with a Provo Craft Cuttlebug embossing folder for autumn. The shine is awesome but the reflection keeps it from being a good picture. I used an Altenew small leaf die to cut the leaves from paper a dear friend sent me.  It's hard to see but turned out to be a lovely card.

Celebrating fall

I'm into my fall cards now but I want to show you a quick look from my great granddaughter's birthday party. My daughter in law did a fantastic job and had blow up farm animals on a small scale. I didn't get a picture of them, but I did get a picture of the entrance of the balloons and barn. She made her a small cake with a barn and animals on the front of it that was so cute. My great granddaughter loved the FP barn and those little animals. Here she is in her farm shirt and jeans playing with the farm.

This is an alcohol ink on vellum card using a die I picked up at Hobby Lobby. I cut it from white c/s and sponged some brown ink in the center of the sunflower. Have a great day.
