Happy Halloween Everyone!
The card posted today is the card I made for my card mingle buddy Cabio! I didn’t get a chance to take a picture before mailing it so she was kind enough to send me a picture so I could share it with all of you – thanks Cabio!
Today is the last day to get YNS Halloween Limited Edition Digital Stamps – you can check them out HERE.
Also every month I draw a winner for a stamp set from my followers list and this coming Monday is the November draw so be sure to add yourself as a follower if you haven’t already. I would like to take this moment to say how much I appreciate everyone and all your comments – thank you so much!

Also YNS is also the proud sponsor of the Sunday Sketch and Stamp which runs until Saturday November 7th so join in on the fun for your chance to win the Shopper Fhiona stamp set.
Brandon is dressing up as a cute little monkey for Halloween so I’ll definitely have to share some pictures with you next week! I’d love to hear what you and your kids are dressing up as for Halloween 🙂
Have a safe and fun Halloween!
Well Chris, myself and 8 of our friends survived the Miami heat and had a fabulous time! We are now back in the cool Ontario weather and I’m ok with that because even though I had a ton of fun I missed my son and all my craft stuff! It’s good to be home 🙂
Today Your Next Stamp is the proud sponsor of Sunday Sketch & Stamp Challenge #14 – YAY! You can check out all the details about their challenges and join in on the fun HERE!
The sketch was a ton of fun to work with and after playing with different options I decided to make mine into a birthday bag since today is my 33rd birthday!!!
I’ve used the adorable little giraffe from the Wild About You stamp set and the background star image is from the Birthday Boy stamp set. I stamped it in a very pale pink so it’s hard to see in the picture but you should be able to click on the picture to make it bigger so you can see it better. I couldn’t wait to put on some of that pink jungle satin ribbon that I bought awhile back and just knew I would have the perfect use for it one day! All the edges are distressed as well and then I added some pink pearls to finish it off. I was in a total pink mood and I love the way it turned out!
I hope you choose to join in all the fun challenges! I really find they inspire me to step out of my creative comfort zone and I’m always amazed with the different creations I come up with from all the great inspiration!
I’m enjoying some birthday vacation time right now in Miami Beach so check back for some fun pictures soon!
Have a Fabulous Day!
I used Home Sweet Home and the Happy Birthday sentiment from the HB mermaid set along with some yummy chocolate satin ribbon and pearls along the bottom. I was so pleased with how my little blue home turned out!
I hope it brightens your day.
See you tomorrow with another super cool challenge!

October 31st is sneaking up on us and I have to admit that I love Halloween!!! I especially enjoy Halloween now that we have a child to enjoy all the excitement with which brings me back to when I was a kid. I remember this one house in my neighbourhood growing up that would set up a really spooky yet fun Halloween scene every year. We would all run away screaming once we heard their creepy music playing but we always came running back for more! My favorite part was having to walk to plank for my candy! That was so COOL! I hope there are fun things like that around here for Brandon – he would just love that!
While in the fun Halloween spirit I’ve been playing with our new limited edition digital stamps which you can check out HERE. They are only available until October 31st so hop on over and get yours today!
I used the Cute Kitty for my card and I must say I love how it turned out! I crimped the ribbon for a fun look and put a MME Boo To You! brad in the center and colored the kitty in with Copics. The designer paper is MME Boo To You! as well and of course I’ve added my favorite baubles!
I’d like to thank you for visiting my blog and as a fun Friday surprise I will enter your name into a draw for a secret surprise package if you leave a comment on this post and it gets even better because I’ll enter your name twice if you tell me a fun Halloween story!
I’ll draw the winner’s name and post it on my blog Tuesday so you have until Monday at midnight to comment.
Have a great weekend and I’ll be back Tuesday!
