Die Cut Halloween Card

We've got a mini Crop going on over at Creative Inspiration. Lots of fun challenges and you have til Sunday, Oct. 29th to play along! My challenge is to use die cuts on your project. I decided to make a Halloween card using a die cut.

I love this die cut from Tim Holtz. And I love these stickers I picked up at Michaels. You can't tell from the photo but the round sticker is a hologram that turns into a skeleton when you move it. 
I hope you'll stop by and play along with our mini crop.

Thanks for stopping by!

Halloween Card

Here's a Halloween card I made using up some of my Halloween paper scraps.

The sentiments and  images are all stamps that were heat embossed to make them really stand out.

World Card Making Day Challenge

We've got a World Card Making Day mini crop going on at Creative Inspiration through Oct. 7th. My challenge is to make a card using some stamps.

I've used a sheet music stamp for the background and then a layered tree stamp set. Love how the layers bring out dimension on the trees. 
Hope you'll stop by and check out our challenges for World Card Making Day!

Washi Tape Switch Plates

I played along with a TTT challenge over at Creative Inspiration that had you use Washi Tape in an unusual way. I loved what Joan had done so I decided to do the same. I took a couple of switch plates off my scraproom walls and covered them with washi tape that coordinates with the colors of my scraproom.

What a great way to dress up your walls! I love how they came out and now I'm eyeing several other switch plates in the house.

I've got a layout up at the Sketches In Thyme Blog today. We have a great sketch to play with this week. These are photos of my granddaughters in the pool on their 1st trip to Disney World. We had been at the park all day and then they wanted to go swimming. It was in December and it was a bit chilly and the water was just so cold, but they didn't want to get out. We had to bribe them with dinner at McDonalds.

And here's the sketch for this week

I hope you'll stop by and play along with us at Sketches In Time. We have some great sketches for you.  Hope to see you there!

New Home

I've got a challenge up at Creative Inspiration today. It's a scraplift challenge and I ended up keeping pretty much true to the layout I chose to lift.

I used watercolors for the background and all the papers are from my scrap pile. The embellishments are a mixture of different collections. 

I hope you'll come join us at Creative Inspiration and play along with some of our challenges.
