Happy Halloween my crafty peeps, I always have loved Halloween, the cooler weather, the changing of the leaves, the world suddenly having endless possibilities. It's the time of year when you can dress up to be whatever you can imagine. In that spirit, here is a Halloween card, using stamps from Magnolia, a company in Sweden.
I colored her with Copic markers.
The saying is from a stamp set by Prickley Pear, and to add more interest to the flowers, I used my Wink of Stella-Clear glitter pen for pizazz!
The final embellishments were pumpkin flat back buttons, bought at Hobby Lobby in their paper crafting section. I also entered her into a challenge blog over at Magnolia-licious. I hope you all have a happy Halloween and happy crafting.

World Wide Open Design Team Challenge #27, Begins 10/15/17

Hi my crafty peeps, The latest challenge over at World Wide Open Challenge Design Team blog is open. Why not hop on over and enjoy the fun?
Here is my latest bit of inspiration...
I used another amazing image from Julia Spiri, coloring her in with Copic Markers. Since Fall has begun, it made me think of Halloween, so this little lady seemed appropriate. I pop dotted her up, for added depth.
I then added a few pearls for the necessary bling...
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to stop by Julia's store...

Julia Spiri's New Designs

Morning my wonderful crafty peeps, As some of you may know, I'm on a design team which does challenges sponsored by the talented artist Julia Spiri. She has recently come out with a few new digi stamps and they are amazing. Here is my fall inspired card using one of the designs...
Fall is my favorite season, and that was the inspiration for the card. I also pop dotted her up for dimension, along with glitter Washi tape from Hobby Lobby.
The flowers are from Prima, and I added flower details using a gold paint pen, which you can see in the next photo.
Below are the direct links to the new images...

Christmas Cards Galore

Hi my crafty peeps! As some of you may know, I begin the Christmas card process as early as May. Once in awhile I've even been know to start in April, LOL. I'm of the mind that I want to relax and enjoy the holiday, not be stressed out by having to shop, make my cards, make sure they get sent out in time etc. Hence the early process.
This week, I'll be giving sneak peeks of a few of the styles that I've made. Yes, I know I did write "styles", because let's face it, doing 100-125 cards of the same design is extremely boring, lol.
Here is my first design...
Living in Florida has its advantages, but snow and cool weather aren't any of them.
Being from Canada, I miss my change of seasons, so many of my cards have a snowflake or winter theme. These look complicated, but were super easy. With stamps, clear embossing powder and of course, glitter these came together. Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekends, and happy crafting!
