Happy Halloween 2008

Hello all and I hope this finds you well on this beautiful fall day.  It’s a bit nippy here in West Tennessee and I love it!  Fall is my favorite time of the year.  I love the colors and the excitement of getting ready for the holidays.

These are my first Halloween cards and are for my little friends, nieces and nephews, plus some special stampin’ friends.  I made about a dozen and enjoyed every minute of it.  They are the cutest little cards.  I mainly used rub ons from the Paper Studio and some Halloween ribbon from Wal-Mart.  Enjoy!!

Supplies:  Stamps:  House Mouse, Stampin’ Up and Hampton Arts; Paper:  Whisper White, Kiwi Kiss, Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black; Ink:  Basic Black; Accessories:  Rub Ons from the Paper Studio, Ribbon from Walmart, Dimensionals;

Blessings to all,



Home Again! Basic Pirouettes – CC188

Hi, everyone- we are back from vacation and I couldn’t wait to get back to my craft room and see what’s been happening on SCS in the last couple of weeks.  We had a wonderful time and I hope to post a few pix later on, but first just had to create for the color challenge today.  The new In Colors didn’t do much for me at first, but they are growing on me- especially this pretty Pink Pirouette.  I think I have found my style, at least for now, in the simple cards.  I have been very inspired by Sharon at notimetostamp and her Stamp Simply cards.  On this card I generated the sentiment and used the cute little Thanks a Latte mugs from My Favorite Things.   I embossed the mugs and used some black and white ribbon from Wal-Mart.  And used that fabulous Scallop Edge punch from Stampin’ Up.
