Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!


Today I am sharing the card I made for my nephew. Looking forward to seeing him tonight! He is going to be Cat Boy from PJ Masks.


Once again I used the super cute Lawn Fawn Happy Howloween stamp set and the Boos & Brews Doodlebug Design paper. The sketch I used is the last one from Pals Paper Arts, so sad to see this challenge blog closing!




I mixed a few papers and some washi tape from the same Doodlebug collection to make this card. It’s a little busy for me but I am sure my nephew will like it 🙂


Here is the sketch~



Have a great day!


Happy 1st Howl-o-ween!



Tonight I am sharing the Halloween card I made for my niece.  I can’t wait to see her tomorrow. She is going to be an owl.




I used my new Lawn Fawn Happy Howloween stamp set with new Doodlebug Design paper, Boos & Brews, along with the Mojo Monday sketch.  The ghosts are from a Taylored Expression die set.  I added the “1st” from an old PTI set called Make a Wish Additions.


Here is the sketch~



Have a great night!


Halloween Cookies





I’m trying to get back on track with my Fall and Halloween project and have this card to share tonight.




I found this cute Halloween Cookies stamp by Pink Ink at a small scrapbook store last summer and finally inked it up last night. I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and then blended it with Gamsol. I colored several images the same way yesterday and was quite pleased with the results! I think I might reach for my pencils more often now instead of relying on my Copics.  The paper is from Authentique Mysterious paper pad and I added die cuts from Taylored Expressions and MFT.


The layout is Sketch #370 from Tuesday Morning Sketches which closes in a few minutes!



Tonight is the NCIS: Los Angeles season premiere! One of my favorite shows and I’m so happy it’s back!

Have a great night!


Batty and Catty




Tonight I have a Halloween card to share using Kraftin Kimmie’s Batty and Catty!  I used their September sketch and the new Clean & Simple Challenge.


2016 Card 89 - KKS Batty and Catty


The papers are from Photoplay’s Bootiful collection.  Lots of fun Halloween prints in this one!


I also decorated the inside! I added the sentiment that came with the image and a cat from Taylored Expressions’ Gothic Window Accessories.  The bats on the front are from the same set.
