Happy Halloween!

Wow! I just realized it's been 15 days since my last post on this blog... time sure does have a way of flying by, doesn't it??!!??

Just a quick note to my friends who have expressed concerns about us... we are fine and made it through "Franken-storm" virtually unscathed! There is some flooding in low-lying areas nearby and our power flickered a few times, but we are otherwise well! Thank you for your concern!

I'm still waiting to hear from some of my online friends in the New Jersey area and my thoughts and prayers go out to those all along our East Coast!

So, over at The Crafter's Cafe, we had a Secret Halloween Card exchange! It was sponsored by Robyn's Fetish and we all got to choose our image from the RF shop! I have been waiting patiently to post my card until I was sure it had been received by my swap buddy!

I just can't wait any longer!! I had so much fun making this pop-up stage scene!!
The bear is "Bearly a Pumpkin" from Robyn's Fetish!

The little pop-up candies and pumpkins are from Lettering Delights "Sew Spooky" set. I cut them out with my EClips, of course, and glittered like a mad woman!!

The papers are from a Martha Stewart seasonal paper pack, I just don't remember the name of it!

I made the fence using something "similar" to a Fiskars punch, with my "trace" feature in ECal. Not quite sure, but I think the haunted house was an SVGCuts freebie... it was in my "random" files, before I started getting organized and sorting things the right way on my 'puter... 

I didn't take any pictures of the belly band that wrapped it all up, but it was fun, too! I made a chain of pumpkins, then glued them together to wrap around the card.... I used a template similar to this one

Have to say, I'm pretty proud of how it all turned out!

Tonight, it's my turn to take the boys out trick-or-treating while Daddy gets to stay home and scare the neighborhood kids, err, I mean, hand out bags of candy to all the little goblins!

 Today is the big day!!
We're having a BLOG HOP for Robyn's Fetish
to celebrate the release of our BRAND NEW FALL IMAGES!!

You should have arrived here from SANDRA'S BLOG.

Aren't you just loving all the new digis!!??!!

I got to play with one called "Pumpkin Border"
for my first project on the Robyn's Fetish Team!!

Sometimes, "border" digis can seem intimidating,
because people aren't sure how to use them...

I have made a simple "center step" card to show you!

I used the Pumpkin Border image as my main image
and also joined several together in a chain to create a border.

I put them together using eCal with my EClips machine
and did a "Print 2 Cut"... colored it with Copics, then tied it off with a simple bow.

I just love the versatility of digital images!!
It's so easy to print them any size, for any project!!

Here's another view:

Sometimes, I think less is more and this is one of those times!

Could I have added all kinds of bling and embellishments?
Yes, I could have, but chose not to!
I wanted you to see the pretty vine paper and the awesome digi!!

Altogether, there are SEVENTEEN new images in the Shop!

Hello, all my Blog-land friends!!

So, it's October already!

Do you realize there are only 82 days until Christmas!!??!!

As we head into October, it's a great time to send out a reminder 
to schedule your next mammogram!!

It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month!!

In honor of BCA, the team at The Stamping Boutique has posted a new challenge.

TSB is sponsoring Link Up For Pink
and I am planning to enter as many times as I can for a chance to win one of the prizes!
There are TONS of giveaways!!

Here is the first of my PINK creations for the month:

I made a 2-5-7-10 bag during our "Crafty Chat" at The Crafter's Cafe last weekend.

I colored her with my Prismacolor Pencils.
The paper is from Echo Park.

I colored the banner twice and cut out the second to pop it up for a little dimension.
She also has some Glossy Accents on her bows and boots.
Her hair barrette is pink Liquid Pearls.

This little bag will be on her way to my friend from The Crafter's Cafe.
I hope she enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it!

Sure do hope you'll join us for the PINK PINK PINK challenge at TSB

and remember to schedule your exam!!!

See you soon!!
