Good morning!  I know . . . don’t faint . . . two days in a row posting!  Like I said before, this may not last long but right now my schedule with the grandbaby has changed and I find I have a couple free days each week.  PLUS, I’m really trying to make more of an effort to get the creative mojo flowing . . .


This Halloween card is posted over on the Quietfire Creations Blog today and I do hope you’ll hop over and take a look at the extra photos and all the details.  There’s even a little surprise on the inside!

In the meantime, I picked up a few frames while out running errands yesterday and I have a couple of new stencils to try out . . . I hear the embossing paste calling my name!

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a fabulous day!

Good morning!  Hope everyone is doing well.  First things first, a great big thank you to everyone who contacted me regarding Mallory’s symptoms.  We so appreciate all your concerns, thoughts and prayers!  Hopefully we’ll know more sooner than later.

On another note, today is Hadlee’s first birthday!!!!!  The big party is planned for tomorrow . . . WOO HOO!!!  She’s not walking yet, but she is starting to stand on her, climb everything that’s in her path and is becoming quite the little dare devil . . . and she has 2 bottom teeth!  Hope she can eat that cake tomorrow.

My last thing today . . . it’s my day to post over on the Quietfire Creations Blog.


You’ll be able to find all the details and more pictures on the Quietfire Creations Blog.

Thanks for stopping by today!!

or a Bad Witch?

Happy Thursday!  I’ve got another Halloween card to share today but first let me answer a question about the Vintage Glass Glitter from yesterday.  I’ve been using this glitter for a number of years now and for me, there’s nothing else that compares to it.  My favorite and what I used on the snowflake in yesterday’s post is Barbara Trombley’s Art Institute Glitter.  I personally like the shards in Krystallos.   You can find it at the links above, or at Simon Says Stamp.

Now for my card!  A week or so ago . . . honestly I can’t remember when exactly . . . a lot of my time has been spent helping Katie and the new wee one . . .

Hadlee Monday

who has literally stolen each of our hearts . . . especially her Auntie Mallory’s!

Anyhoo . . . back to the card!  I pulled out some of my favorite Halloween stamps, Stampendous – Witch Shoes and Inky Antics – Good Witch, and this is what I came up with.


The image was water colored with Distress Ink Refills and the seam binding was dyed in matching Shaded Lilac Distress Ink.

That’s it for me today!  I have to tell y’all that there is already new Winter CHA Product hitting my doorstep . . . deadlines looming . . . . no wonder it feels like this year is flying by!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Weekend!  It’s been a little crazy around here this week . . . with projects I can’t show you yet.  Don’t you just hate it when I say something like that?  We’ve got another baby shower tomorrow . . . I can’t wait to see all the cute baby things!  Little girls clothes are just the cutest . . .

I worked up a couple of Halloween cards today, the first one cutesy and the second one grungy!  I’m showing you the second one today because I like it better than the first and actually made this one to replace the cutesy one.  Mallory likes the cutesy one (she says its different than my normal work), so I’ll probably show that one to you next week.

I had in mind to work with the Quietfire Designs Halloween! Wicked Collection, and for some reason I pulled out the Graphic 45 Magic of Oz Collection to go with.  Hmmmmm maybe it has something to do with Wicked . . .


Jack was stamped in Archival Jet Black on watercolor paper and then water colored with Faded Jeans, Scattered Twigs and Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink.  I made a mask of Jack with Eclipse Tape, and then stamped over the image with a sentiment from the Quietfire set in Sepia Archival.

Once the image had been die cut/embossed with Spellbinders Ovals, it was sponged with Antique Linen and just a hint of Vintage Photo around the outer edge.  The ghost paper behind Jack was die cut with Spellbinders Grand Square, placed on an angle.

The seam binding was dyed with the same ink used to watercolor with . . . with a smidgen of Black Soot added.  All the edges of the paper were distressed with my favorite distressing tool, my scissors!

Well, I guess that’s all for me!  Thanks for stopping by and remember . . . life is short, enjoy the adventures that come your way!
