Happy Halloween...

Today is my favorite holiday. I love the kids all dressed up in costumes ranging from princesses, bumblebees, ladybugs, ghosts, mummy's, vampires, skeletons and the list goes on. They all have smile's on there faces and love checking out the treats that enter there sacks from one house to the next. I know my kids went out with pillowcases in hopes that they will fill them up. LOL I let them know that the dentist was giving out $2.00 per lb of candy as well as sending $2.00 per lb to the boys and girls club they gave me a look like I was insane. I will keep my fingers crossed that they do not fill up those pillowcases and I can't wait till they return home to hear all the stories about this house and that house and whom had a haunted garage etc. LOL

I leave you with a few Projects... First up are a few cards I made with some Imaginisce "Spooky Town" goodies I received in one of my DT boxes from Purple Cows. You can also see the step by step instructions to make these cards on the Purple Cows site.

Next up is a Mini Album that I created from Clear Scraps 7" Scalloped album. Plus I used Cosmo Cricket "Haunted" goodies that I received in a DT box from Purple Cows. You can see the directions for this album on Clear Scraps Blog as well as on Purple Cows Site.

Thanks so much for looking and I will be back soon with some more Projects.

There's a new Kit on the block...

Be sure to check out "The little shabby box" It's a new kit club but not just any kit club it's a CARD kit club. Yup that's right. I have been doing a lot of card classes lately and a lot of my friends that aren't local to me have e-mailed me for directions and supply lists for my classes so with a lot of push and begging from yall I took the leap and started "The little shabby box" I was just gonna keep it as an Etsy shop but decided if I'm gonna leap then leap good so I started it's own site and blog. The Kits will go up on the 15th of each month. The Fall kit is already up. I will be posting some sample cards made with the kit this weekend. So be sure to check out the The little shabby box blog. Be sure to read the first blog post as there is a DT call and I know some of your are amazing card designers. I am only looking for a couple card designers and already have a lot of submissions but I didn't want any of you to miss out on the call. Hugs and thanks for the gentle nudge.
Here are a few photos of the kit.
Thanks again to all of you who pushed and nudged.. hehe Love ya lots
