Happy Halloween

I picked up my Halloween candy yesterday for the 6 trick or treaters we get, LOL! We live in an older neighborhood and there's not that many kids. The first Halloween I counted 8 trick or treaters, was I disappointed. 

This year with Sophie in school I get to have a little more fun, so we are going to decorate some goodie bags for cookies and candy. I'm sure e other parents will be thrilled! 

Here's a fun Halloween card using Echo Parks Apothecary Emporium. Isn't that witch shilouette fun?  Its part of their sticker pack. I jazzed it up with a few purple rhinestones.

Here's a closer look. I layered purple ribbon on top of a black sheer ribbon with frilly, fringed edges. I don't know how to really describe it but its cool.

The stamp is from a Inkadinkado set, that's been my go to for Halloween. I love the little flourishes and font.

I'm linking this up with the following:

Looks like a gorgeous party! Do you have any big plans for Halloween?

Enthralled with Fall

Yay fall is here! It's been foggy and chilly here and I love it. There are leaves on the ground waiting to be crunched (that's my favorite thing to do), we've been making pumpkin muffins and eating lots of apples. We've already been to the pumpkin patch too!

Speaking of leaves and fall, here is the gorgeous Tuesday Trigger-Enthralled with Fall over at the Moxie Fab World Blog.


Inspired by the colors of the leaves...the pinks, yellows and oranges I made this: 

Sigh...I am in love with this card. I used My Mind's Eye The Sweetest Thing pink and white chevron cardstock and then fussy cut the flowers and hexagons with bees from another piece.  The yellow with polka dot background paper is from DCWV Fresh Floral Stack. 

The sentiment is from Stampin' Up Vintage Verses (only available during the Sale-a-Bration earlier this year) and stamped in their Early Espresso. The striped yellow and white piece is from the tip top of the MME 6x6 paper pad...leave no scrap to waste!

I even dressed up the I side with more chevron paper and a fussy cut bee and hexagons grouping. The sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping Hydrangea set.

To finish off the card I even dressed up the envelope. More DCWV yellow with white polka dot paper. 

Happy Friday, thanks for stopping by! Hope you have an amazing weekend planned. It's off to a concert for my and DH!

Hooked on You

Happy Thursday. Well one month into school and Sophie is now sick. She's has a slight fever for the last two days, thankfully that's all. I'm hoping she will feel better tomorrow and that no one else gets it.

I was able to squeeze in a little card making and came up with this.  I used a sketch from the Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge #3. This is a new company with some super cute designs. I actually won this set during their grand opening release party a few months ago.

I colored this little guy with markers and then realized that I didn't have a brown marker for coloring. So I grab a q-tip, ink it up and colored him with that. It didn't turn out too horrible...but I am definitely getting a brown marker fr my collection.

Here's the sketch:
