Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!  My absolute favorite time of year!  I was so excited to spend the day with my little one on his very first Halloween, but it looks like he has a fever so we're going to be spending the day at the doctor instead of trick or treating :(  Oh well...there's always next year.  Hope he feels better soon!  Poor thing. 

I wanted to share this sweet little card I made for him though.  I've decided to make him a card for every major holiday and give them to him when he's older. 

For this card, I used an image from Whimsie Doodles.  Unfortunetley, this image was a freebie and is no longer available, but the good news is they have a ton of other adorable designs to choose from.  Trust me, you will not have a problem finding something you like there! 

Here's a Close UP
I recently took a Copic coloring class by Kit and Clowder where I learned to create this adorable little background.  As soon as I started coloring this little guy, I instantly thought of this background.  Turns out I was's adorable!!! If you haven't checked out their classes, I highly recommend them.  You will not be disappointed :)  Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you have a wonderful and safe Halloween!!!!

Sassy Little Witch

Hello, Hello!  Hope you guys are having a great week!  Today I've got a super sassy Halloween card for you.  I used one of my favorite stamp sets from Close To My Heart : Wicked.  Unfortunately, it's retired, but you can still find it on ebay from time to time.  I just love it! 

So without further adue... here's my card:
I used the My Favorite Things Rosette Die as well as one of the four corners dies from My Favorite Things as well. The crow is a sticker from Martha Stewart.  I used Staz On to ink up the image.  For some reason, my Memento just wasn't dark enough so I pulled out the big guns.  The Staz On worked perfectly! 

Here's a peek at the inside. 

And a close up of the image. 
Thanks so much for stopping by!  I'll be posting some more Halloween goodness soon so check back!

Don't worry...I'm still alive!

Well hello there!  I know, I know... it's been FOREVER since my last post.  But, the good news is, I have a good reason.  In fact, I have the best reason of all-- I HAD A BABY!  And he is the most precious thing ever!  So that's where I've been. Taking care of my sweet little one and now that he's a little older, I'm ready to get back to crafting!  So... here we go!
