Decorating for Halloween has become a thing of the past for us, sadly... but we sure enjoyed a long, and fun-filled run of it! From Skeletal Lab Man crawling out of the garden calling for a hand from the little trick-or-treaters, to dressing our dogs in cat costumes! [not really - we just told the kids that lol]
I had to use a few of the goodies from the treats-filled bag of goodies received from those Lovely Lake Gals a few weeks ago. I told Darnell Inspired By 42 was made for them!
". . . with YOU is always Spooktacular - no bones about it!!"
There should be no question about what inspired me from Laurel's cool photo … but we can't wait to see what inspires YOU!! We'll see you in the gallery!
I love The Flower Challenge, and their entire design team … it's with regret that I don't play along every month. But after seeing all the lovely Reminder cards from the team, I thought it time to make time! It IS their 2nd birthday!!
I've had a full afternoon with the gorgeous new EBE Mondo Holly from Julie Ebersole! [You'll see the others soon.] For this Challenge, I chose to water color it in shades of grey with red as the accent.
A fun thing happened when I heat embossed my sentiment! As the splatters hadn't dried, and the Versafine ink hadn't either, bits of silver embossing powder stuck in several areas that I hadn't intended! and Bob's your uncle: I added sparkle!!
It's the time of year to just let one's inner kid come out, isn't it? Halloween! I love you! There couldn't be a more perfect day to bring out my EBE House Box Die, either...
This time, I did a partial die cut, and used the gabled parts to make two spooky little houses for my cards - clever, huh? With a tiny snip, I was able to use those wonderful characters elsewhere, too! I used my own words to create the sentiment...
One of my favorite embossing folders from We R Memory Keepers was used to create this spooky forest … and the footprints? EBE Stitching Lines!
Another, for my pun-loving grandkids...
I hope you'll shop before your favorites disappear!! EEEEK! that would be scary!!!

During the fun travels with Bobby, and Nancy, I challenged them to create a card with a sweet little coffee cozy from the coffee bar in our hotel in Mount Dora, FL - a fun sleepover prior to our adventure at My Favorite Things!
I didn't think to photograph the cozy... duh! But I had no trouble creating a cute little vase [for these tropical Wplus9 blooms, colored in the Kathy Racoosin class] with the dies I picked up from MFT! Who could resist using the leftovers for my simple greeting?
Hmmm... I wonder if the girls remembered? lol! I'll watch my inbox!
