Craftalicious Autumn color challenge

The challenge from Craftalicious for this fortnight is Autumn. I chose to use this darling little clown from CC Designs. I thought he needed a little paint on his face so gave him a little makeup. lol I also vowed to dig deep into my stash and get a few things used so out came the sequin pumpkins, metal BOO and the web and spider stickers. (not to mention the beads that were from way back over 20 years ago when I was into jewelry making. lol) Of course I had to add a little stickles and a few pearls to finish it off.

The challenges I am entering are:

Bunny Zoe's- sketch

Stamping Scrapping- anything

Delightful Challenges- Sparkle

Sundays With Crissy- sparkle and shine (not eligible to win)

Crazy 4 Challenges- Bring on the bling....used glitter, sequins, beads, pearls and shiny ribbon.

Happy Halloween boys!

Another challenge from Bev! We picked the sketch from 7 kids College Fund, which I turned sideways. Again we chose a fall/Halloween theme. I made this for my son's boys. The little ghost tags pull out of the pocket with a little surprise for each grandson. The front of the card has a mixture of embellishments....from homemade flowers to ghost and bat ribbons cut apart. I even doodled a few extra vines on the pumpkins. I used my new stamp from CC Designs which I think is absolutely adorable. I also challenged myself to dig deep into my stash and use the ever forgotten stickers. lol I hope my grandsons enjoy receiving my card. Thank you so much for stopping by.

Picture challenge for Lexi's

Our challenge at Lexi's Creations this time is to incorporate a photograph on your project. I used her digi sentiment stamp "Happy Birthday". I chose to make a card for my husbands upcoming birthday. He will be 60 next month so wanted to make a card a little more special by adding his baby picture. I found a tutorial on how to make this slider peek-a-boo card and knew it would be perfect for this project. I love how his baby photo is showing thru the window but when you open the card it is a recent picture. My husband is absolutely not into frills and bling so made this card a little plain. His favorite colors are blue and brown so chose those for this project also. I hope he likes this. Please come and join us at Lexi's! Thanks for stopping by and please come back soon!

Challenges I am entering:

Biddy Buddies challenge!

A couple of wonderful friends along with a couple of wonderful relatives joined me (now known as the Biddy Buddies) in a joint challenge. It was so fun. We chose the theme of a Thanksgiving card. Then we drew names to see what each would send to the other four......Bev sent the sketch, April sent paper, Barb and Tauna sent embellishments. I was chosen to send a stamped image. No one really knew what the others would chose other than the subject. We were then required to use what they sent. We were allowed to add whatever else we would like to. I hope the others enjoyed this as much as I did. It was so fun to see just how each made such fabulous creations with the exact items. We are hoping to make it a monthly challenge just for our own amusement. lol Thanks to each of you beautiful ladies for the fun! Hugs to you all.
