Good Morning! I have been looking forward to today's release and blog hop. These stamps are sooo much fun. You should have arrived here from my very talented DT sister - Colleen. There are two collections being released - VICTORIA CASE FOR SCACD - STREET VIEWS AND CLASSIC RETRO CREW.

When you purchase a set you will receive a bonus stamp and sentiment along with a discount. For my international friends, these sets can be purchased at Quixotic Paperie.

I have the honor of presenting to you WISHES DO COME TRUE and FAIRY HOLLOW. This card was sooooo much to make. I was a little worried when I decided to mask instead of doing two separate images, but it all turned out well.

I stamped WISHES DO COME TRUE and masked her then stamped FAIRY HOLLOW. I knew I wanted to use the colors turquoise and red before I started and I went through all my stash to find ribbon and embellies to match.

The images are colored with Copics with Deco Art Glamour Dust - Crystal added to the mushroom house and Stickles on her headpiece and belt. I added Sparklers for the door knobs and accents. I did Diamond Glaze the windows, but not until after I took the pics. Sorry. The flowers at the bottom of image were made using my Memory Box Catalina Border. I cut out the border then cut it up. I love these dies, they cut so clean. The ribbon, flower, and butterflies are from my stash.

Now, to continue with the blog hop, please go another very talented sister - Suzanne.

I hope you had fun today with the hop.

Good Morning all! It's almost Friday - YAY !!!! A cold front blew in last night and dropped the temp to 58 which feels good if we just didn't have the wind. I'll take it any day over the heat. Well, this will be my last Halloween card for this year. I just love this KRAFTIN' KIMMIE image. SUSANA has the fall and Halloween KK stamps on sale right now, as well, as the fall and Halloween PAPER PADS.

She is stamped on PTI paper and colored with COPICS. The pumpkin's eyes and mouth are highlighted with STICKLES. The cute little sentiment comes with the image.

HAPPY MONDAY MORNING! Hope ya'll had a wonderful weekend. The weather here in Central Texas was perfect. How 'bout those Texas Rangers? (YAY - going to the World Series again)

Today I have another Halloween card for you. This image is KRAFTIN' KIMMIE - POTION MASTER. SUSANA has a great sale going on right now on for Halloween stamps

The DP is a combination of CTMH and MEMORY BOX - NIGHTFALL

I used a SB die for the border and added some SPARKLERS for a little glitz. I have to have some bling. (lol) There are times I like the sparklers better than rhinestones because the image really doesn't call for rhinestones - does that make sense? The sentiment comes with the POTION MASTER image, as well, as another one that says "We have chemistry".

I am entering the following challenges:

Paper Sundaes - Halloween or Fall
Stamptacular Sunday - Anything Goes
Crafty Cardmakers - Cute with a Dark Twist - (She is kinda cute in a crazy way) lol
Creative Craft Friends - Halloween
The Crazy Challenge - Halloween
Creative Card Crew - Spooky Fun
Everybody Art Challenge - Halloween
My Time To Craft - Orange and Black
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge - Fall or Halloween
One Stop Craft - Halloween

A pic of the inside to show you the SB - TWISTED METAL TAGS AND ACCENTS. After cutting out the tag, I cut it again with Kraft paper and glued on the inside so I could write a little note.

Thank you for stopping by. I have one more Halloween card which will be posted on Thursday.

HAPPY WEDNESDAY!!! The weekend is near. (YAY) Today I want to show you 2 of the pumpkins from the PRICKLEY PEAR ACRYLIC STAMPS - PUMPKIN SET and then I cut them out with the MATCHING DIE. Susana has the ornament, owl, cardinal and many other sets. Check them out!!

I love making easel cards, but for some reason don't seem to make many. These were really easy and simple. They are 4 1/2" square. Then I just used black and orange glitter paper and finished off with a sentiment and embellishments. Of course the image was colored with COPICS and highlighted with STICKLES.

Just a closeup of the sentiment and embellishments. This card is really really glitzy.

I promised you two easel cards and here is the second one. Again, I used the PRICKLEY PEAR ACRYLIC STAMPS - PUMPKIN SET. The ribbon is from my stash and I used my BOW EASY to make the pretty little bow.

The sentiment is from my stash. The black glitter die cut is from the SPELLBINDERS SHAPEABILITIES - TWISTED METAL TAGS AND ACCENTS with some KAISERCRAFT RHINESTONES added to finish it off.

Thank you for coming by and ya'll come back!!

Happy Sunday!! Hope everyone is having a wonderful day. Today I am showing you the FESTIVE WELCOME PEEKER from the ELISABETH BELL HOLIDAY PEEKERS COLLECTION which are available for Domestic customers at SCACD and International and European customers at QUIXOTIC PAPERIE. I just cannot say enough how much I love these images.

Of course, she is colored with COPICS and highlighted with STICKLES. I also used a little stickles on the flowers.

Copics used: BOW: BVOOO,OO,O2, 11 , COAT/HAT: RV24,46, WREATH: G07,30,24, BIRDHOUSES: E70,71,74,77, SKIN: EOOOO,OOO,OO,O2, R81, HAIR: E50, 31,33,37, GROUND: W1, C1, BVOOOO, BV000.

The purple border and snowflakes were made using the MEMORY BOX FROSTYVILLE BORDER. I cut it up to make the border I wanted and used the little snowflakes to accent the image. I thought I need more glitz so I also applied STICKLES to the border and snowflakes. The edging of her coat and boots was made by mixing chunky glitter with flock.

Just wanted to show you the inside so you could see the MEMORY BOX FROSTYVILLE DIE before I cut it up. The beautiful DP is left over from my stash from last year, but I still love the colors.

Update on my little furbaby. The surgery went well, but she is still not able to stand and has to be on pain meds around the clock for 7 days. This is the fourth day, but she is still in a lot of pain. She has to be constantly watched so she doesn't try to stand on her own or needs to go potty. It will be a long long recovery because of her age.

Thank all of you for your prayers.


She also have KRAFTIN' KIMMIES ( in the KKimmie area) and Halloween Paper both on sale while supplies last.

Thank you for coming by to visit me. Wednesday I will be showing you the super cute little PRICKLEY PEAR PUMPKINS ACRYLIC STAMPS AND DIE, so please ya'll come back!

REMINDER: My drawing for the candy is tomorrow at noon ct.

Good Morning Friends! Here is my first Halloween card. I should have two more to post next week. This scary image is a KRAFTIN KIMMIE - MOANING MOIRA and luck have it , SUSANA has her on sale.

I need to apologize this post will be a little short because my little 10 1/2 year old dog is having surgery on both her hind knee caps today and it is a little difficult for me to write.

MOANING MOIRA was really fun to color. I sponged the background and gave her bloodshot eyes. Who knows what she has been up to? (lol) I suppose trick or treating with all her friends. She is colored with COPICS and highlighed with STICKLES. After finishing her I framed her with black glitter paper.

This is not a real good pic, but I was trying to capture all the embossing and glitter of the DP. It is so detailed I only had to add a couple of pop up bats to finish off the card. The DP is BEST CREATIONS - HAPPY HAUNTING.

Be sure and visit the store BLOG for some great inspiration. Also, stop by the store and see all the stuff SUSANA has on sale.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
The Corrosive Challenge - Purple Passion
Crafty Cardmakers - Anything Goes
Stamp with Fun - Halloween
The Pink Elephant - Trick or Treat
ABC Challenge - Anything Goes
Secret Crafter Saturday - Halloween

Thank you for coming by. Come back Sunday and I will have a Christmas Card for you to view. I used a really cool die on it.
