***A Sneak Peek***

My friend Heather is very creative.  She has made these digital images.  The spider and the Spider Web paper.  She will go "live" with these on her blog very soon.  I'll update this post and add the link.  This  means that you will be able to print both the spider and pattern paper.  I know she has many other fun projects to share.  In  the meantime, I feel VERY priviliged to have been able to play with these images.  Thanks Heather!  You totally RAWK!!!

I did stamp the "Happy Halloween" around the spider to frame it.  The image doesn't include those words.

Masculine Thank Yous

Hard to make a card with no ribbon, glitter or flowers!  My husband often says that guys just don't care for thank you cards.  "Send me a sticky note with Thanks on it and it'll be fine".  A sticky note!!!  So, here's a couple I needed to make.  I did use the Rock n' Roll technique for the "U".
Also used some paper scraps, that's always good  :)  I thougt about adding a rusty nail or some piece of sand paper but DH said I really spent way too much time on this already.  Guys!!! :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a happy day!

Stamping with Heather Again!

She makes the cutest cards ever and I just had to CASE her card.  She even has a video showing you how to make this card.   I had to change 3 things and that's because I didn't have Brocade Blue or More Mustard papers and I used Shimmery White paper for the snowman just for an added detail.  Doesn't she do amazing work with punches!!! 
Papers: Shimmery White, Crushed Curry, Ruby Red, Night of Navy and Bashful Blue.
Ink: Night of Navy, Crushed Curry and Ruby Red.
Accessories: Sponge, Piercing tool and Mat, Black Marker, 1 3/4" Circle Punch, 1 3/8 " circle Punch, Large Oval Punch, Small Oval Punch, 1/4" Circle Punch (retired), Modern Label Punch (for the noses).
This card is 4 1/4" X 4 1/4 " and the Bashful Blue square is a 3" x 3 " square.
Thanks for stopping by and have a happy day!

My Holiday Mini Catalog Swap

This is the card I finally made for the swap that I am in with some other SU! demonstrators.  It took me forever to decide and when I saw Kristina's card, I knew I had finally found the inspiration for my card.  I had to tweek it a bit to fit the Stampin Up! only challenge and I think it turned out OK. 
I placed my Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive cardstock on my black ink pad and tapped with my fingers on the paper to get just a bit of ink on them. 
The only item I mounted with Pop Dots is the pumkin.  I only have 18 more to make  :)
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Spotlight on Kristin Angst

Posting a photo real quick of one of tomorrow night's Open House project.  More details tonight as I have to run to work and a meeting.

Late editing: Back from my meetinng and wanted to post the link to Kristin's card . I had to make a few changes; not because I didn't like the original version but because I didn't have all of her supplies.  I am adding a link to her blog on my list.  She has a lot of talent so go check it out!
