I used this fun coffee image from our fabulous designer -- I'm a coffee-aholic - so this is perfect and I love the sentiment - a little different than the regular - GET WELL ---

Bright and Sparkly

  This is a reminder post!!  Don't forget at Lollipop Crafts Challenge Blog we are still at it!! It's my turn to do the sponsor spotlight and I used one of the Karber images above!  I have had that sentiment in my stash forever and decided to cut it to fit - I used a negative for the mat and the red is leftover from another cut - it has a bit hole in it!

better late

This was too much fun!!  I love the black orange thing -- well, I added brown!!  This was a fun challenge!  I used the lion along with the lion paper - a little color and a funny sentiment!  I decided to join Kenny K's Krafty Krew's challenge this week!  I used the Happy lion image - he's too fun!!

DistressTrick or Treat

I decided to use the "colored" Frankie.  He is too cute!  I used negative and leftovers on this card!  The good is the positive on the top and the negative on the bottom.  The mat is a "mistake" and the tag is one that's been sitting around a while!  I distressed the tag and that's it - I can't wait to send this off!!

2 Cute 2 Spook

Well, this is just the best Frankie around.  You can find him at the Meljen's Store - I love the spider web and decided to fussy cut him and the bats - the sentiment is on spellbinders - actually pretty simple card - but I'm into simple lately!  I decided to play along with the Meljens Anything Goes Challenge this Week!

Too Cute to Spook

It's that time!!  It's Just Some Lines Challenge Blog's latest challenge!!

You so need to go check out what the Design Team has come up with -- go to Just Some Lines Challenge blog and get some inspiration from my teammates!

I used Halloween Little Ghost and you will find it in the JSL Store -- I made a simple card and yes - I know - I'm into simple!  My life has been so hectic that that's what's on my plate - simplicity!  But -- it still is made from the heart!!  Now go check out what the team has come up with and join us - you could win some of the JSL images - they are way too fun!

You call me a witch....

Witch Pattieboop Caldron is too cute!  I love the sentiment (from Bugaboo).  This two week challenge at Pattie's Creations Design Challenge is all about TAGS!  That's right and we all know tags are in all forms!  I decided to make the sentiment my tag - I'm actually sending our Halloween cards this year - normally I make a zillion and then don't sent them to anyone!  I thought it would be fun to send them to some (selected) clients as an unexpected card!  Of course, not everyone believes in Halloween so I won't send them to everyone - but come have fun with us!  The little glittery moon was a piece of glitter paper from another cut - which one - I just have no clue!!
