A Kid, A Pumpkin And A Knife...What Could Go Wrong???

Thankfully, nothing did!!! My kiddos carved (or sketched out a face to be carved, in Paige's case!) and carved and CARVED until they were just right...

Ant's Fang-tastic...

Josh's Goulish...

And Paige's Spook-tacular Jack-o-lantern!!!

Our porch is sure to be the spookiest on the block!!! Until next time...

Got Candy?

Hello, Everyone! Here's a sweet little card I created using some digi stamps from The Greeting Farm :)

These little spooks are so cute, I could just eat them up!!!

I've kept this card super simple to highlight these adorable digi's. A bit of paper piecing adds some spooky color to their costumes.

Wanna learn how to create this fun easel card??? HERE'S the deets!!!

Masquerade Mask

Hi, Everyone!!! Have you ever played dress up as a little girl?

I remember having such fun wearing my mother's shoes, sporting ALL of her jewelery and having the best tea party with my favorite dollies. Who says, as grown-ups we have to stop??? Here's a peek at another one of my favorite swaps...

I created this mask for a fellow artisan in my Marie Antoinette Mail Art Group. Sonia (Check out her AMAZING blog HERE!) requested a mask in pale tones of pink, sage, aqua or ecru. I just have to say, I CANNOT resist a pink and green color combination! So, sage and pale pink it is---with a bit of ecru and pearl added in for measure.

I just love these mini plumes in ecru! Along with the green and brown feathers, they add a bit of queenly flair to the mask.

These vintage glass beads came from a beautiful necklace that was broken. I restrung just enough of these pretty, pink gems to create a bracelet---so I had a few to spare. They add a lovely, irridescent sparkle to the fleurs.

Here's the gorgeous mask she created for me...

I had such fun with this swap!!! Now I'm off to wear my mask while I mop my floors ;)

Until next time!

Hello!!! Today I thought I'd share another of my card creations with you :)

I just LOVE this stamp from The Greeting Farm! It reminds me of my daughter, Paige, at two.

You see, Paige's daddy bought her a stuffed bunny on her "birth" day. This bunny had a recorded message of her daddy saying, "Hey, Paige...It's daddy...I love you!". This bunny NEVER left Paige's reach (and STILL proudly sports a place of honor on her bed every night)!!!

When I saw this stamp, I just HAD to HAVE it :)

I found a sketch over at Priscillastyles Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #73 that I thought would be perfect for this image. I think this card ABSOLUTELY captures the feeling of "BLISS" my daughter has when she hugs her favorite bunny friend :)

Thanks for stopping by! Until next time...
