Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween!  We had beggars night last night and only had a small handful of trick or treaters and several of then seemed a little old.  I guess if I want to dress up you can't blame the older kids for wanting to get in one more year of fun.  This is a picture of Scott and me at our annual Halloween party from last week.  This years theme was dead celebrities.  Of course he was Harry Caray and I was Audrey Hepburn from Breakfast at Tiffanys.  It was lots of fun but this year we had lots of duplicates.

Floating Image

Today I made another fall card for another challenge.  This one was for Papertrey Ink and the challenge was to have a floating image in a window.  I just love this Leaf Prints stamp and die set.  It's an old one of theirs but new to me this year and I can't stop making fall cards with it.  Hope you like it too.

Happy Mail Challenge 2

This card was made for the second Happy Mail Challenge over at Big Picture Classes.  The challenge was to use two different sized circles on your card.  I hope you can see the embossed circles behind the tree.  Didn't photo very well.  I feel like I'm behind because I'm still making fall cards and everyone else is on to Christmas cards.

Big Picture Challenge

I made this card for a challenge at the Big Picture Classes.  Stacy Julian is doing a 365 but with cards.  This project is more about sending the cards or hand written notes to someone every day for a year!  I already send a card once a week to my husbands grandma who is in a nursing home so I decided to bump up my card production and sending.  I haven't sent a card every day but almost every day since the project started.  My goal is to at least send a card to someone besides Grandma once a week and I have gone way over that.  It's amazing how many birthdays there are. ha ha Anyway, this was a color challenge with black, red, teal, and gray.  I was very excited to use my new memento gray ink on this project.  I think it turned out nice.  Off to the mailbox with this card.
