Just a cold

The last couple of days I have had a really nasty cold. It has kept me from doing much in the way of making cards (drippy exploding noses are no good for doing papercrafts) so I have been working on computer stuff when not napping. Not much of anything that can be seen at the moment but some cool stuff coming up in the near future, and a move to a new server that should be a good thing. I am doing much better now, so I should be back to crafting soon.

Winter sparkle

When I went looking for a sentiment to add to this card I just couldn’t find any. I kept coming across signs that said ‘Don’t be afraid to sparkle’ and I thought you know what that is close to what I want and then it dawned on me that Winter is definitely not afraid to do just that. read more

Halloween spiders

I have a soft spot for spiders.  I am sure it all started with Charlotte’s Web because honestly pretty much everything with me has a book that is in some way responsible.  I just have always kind of found them amazing, and I love all of the different stories and lore about them.  Did you know that they actually have paws, like a dog or cat?  My husband hates them, he isn’t supposed to harm the ones around my desk… read more

Thankful pumpkins

Sometimes I know a general idea of what I want to do for a challenge, and most of the cards I make are inspired by challenges (well it is a whole complex thing but we will just go with that for now), but I don’t know how I am going to pull it off until I find a sketch that works. That was the case with this card. Occasionally I can just put a card together without a sketch, but most of the time I do better with at least the idea of one to work with. read more

Turkey sprite

When I got distracted by the pumpkin sprite the other day this is the turkey sprite that I was originally after.  Totally cute right?  I just really have a soft spot for pumpkins, what can I say?  I am so glad that I remembered that it was the turkey I wanted and went back and got it. read more

Fairy birthday

I was supposed to post this card yesterday in honor of my eldest niece turning 17.  You want to know what, this auntie was doing a bit of pouting instead.  Don’t get me wrong, she has grown into an amazing woman.  One that I am super proud to know and love and spend time with and I can’t say enough wonderful things about…  However, she will always be my little Tinkerbell, my princess, the baby that I waited in a parking lot to meet, the little girl that played in my skirts, and I would buy Hot Cocoa bubble bath for so she would take a bath. read more

My sunshine

When one of my nephews was little (the one I talk about the most) I watched him daily while his mom was at work.  Ok, yes that is true for most of them on and off, but this one was more of a fulltime thing.  Back to the point, I would always sing to him, and this was what I considered his song because he was my sunshine.  He did always make me happy, he still does, except now he tells me he isn’t but I am pretty sure that comes with being nine. read more

Medical poison

There has always been a fine line between the two.  I walk that line every day.  I think that might be one of the reasons that this card is a bit extra cool to me.  We used to have an office that had a drugstore nearby that had a tiny ‘museum’ of all of the years that they had been open, I loved just looking at everything.  So sad when it closed. read more

Pumpkin sprite

I am hopeless. It’s ok. I am always on the lookout for awesome digi sites and I found one! Well, I went to get a Thanksgiving digi today…does the image on this card look like a turkey? That’s because Gina has no control when she sees a sprite in a pumpkin costume with a kitty, and totally forgot what she was supposed to be doing because of the cuteness. read more

Halloween cameo

This is the first card using my new set from the stamps that arrived yesterday!  Isn’t she just lovely!  I sware talk about a company that seems to just get me with the stamps they make.  I adore all of the quilled design stamps, and now Halloween cameos!  My poor wishlist keeps growing! read more

Tricks or treats

So many times I feel the universe is telling me something if I just choose to listen.  This was definitely one of those times.  Just this last weekend a friend was over and we were looking at my paper stash and she eeked out at my trick-or-treater paper.  Then there is a challenge for trick or treat, well I knew exactly what to use!  read more

Spooky charms

This isn’t the first ‘draft’ of this card.  The first version of the card I made of the card using this sketch I felt just didn’t really work, it will be used as personal birthday cards.  This card is much better!  They are not the metal charms I was going to use, but I hesitated in buying the one set and that made the decision for me. read more

Halloween assortment

Sometimes I look at a sketch and keep getting hung up on an idea and it takes me a bit to reorientate my mind to think about it a bit differently.  I kept just seeing the flowers on this sketch and knowing that wasn’t what I wanted to do, and then my mind would head towards snowflakes but I don’t have the right things to do that.  Finally, I remember these stamps! read more

New Years Cheers

First of all, I wanted to go in a completely different direction with this color challenge.  I hope to receive my order in time (oh yeah, you know what that means!) to come back and do a more traditional card as well in Halloween colors, but this time I wanted to try something different.  Second, it is really hard to make New Year’s cards, this took pieces from three stamp sets. read more

Scary Mr. Bones

When I first started making cards my local Michael’s had a lot more Halloween papercraft stuff.  Now they barely have any.  At least they still have some fun Tim Holtz things (like the guy on this card), and I am lucky to live in an area with other craft stores I can venture to as well, and I can always get things online, so I should look at it as them helping me save money and not a bad thing at all. read more
