Cupid's Helper

Now I know it's Halloween time and I'm posting about Cupid?!?! No I haven't lost my mind it's my take on Simply Betty's 9th day of Halloween! It's all about LoVe potion no. 9! This was one of those challenges where it all just fell into place! I knew I wanted to make a drink, and remembered seeing on of these hanging drink mix holders on Splitcoast Stampers! I think this would be a fun thing to have for each adult in your trick-or-treat party. I know I'll be taking one! And don't you think Devil Rio would be the perfect helper for cupid - Drink it or else! :)

The paper is from Scribble Scrabble and DCWV. And of course Devil Rio is available at Simply Betty Stamps but hurry, she's will only be available until October 31st!

Pumpkin Treats

At TiddlyInks Challenges this week the challenge was to create treat bags or boxes. I decided to pull together some of my favorite little pumpkin digis, to create some sweet treats for my cousins!
Pumpkin London treat toppers for my sassy big girls by Simply Betty Stamps!

Sweet little pumpkins from Tiddly Inks for my littlest munchkins!

And handsome Hallow Pumpkin digi from The Greeting Farm for my big boys!

Hopefully your Halloween is full of lots of treat and a few tricks along the way!

I have been dying to color the new "ghoulfriend" digi stamp! I colored her with my copics and gave her some Diamond stickle highlights :) I used my Tim Holtz brick embossing folder for the front of my tent card. Then distressed like crazy, filed and inked. This is perfect for the 5th day of Halloween at Simply Betty Challnges and TiddlyInks Halloween Challenge this week! My two favorite challenge blogs smooshed into one card!

The fourth day of Halloween: Crows & Crow's Feet

It's the fourth day of Halloween at Simply Betty Challenges! Here wasthe challenge!
On the 4th day of Halloween my ghoul love gave to me four crazy Ravens... Incorporate Ravens and this line from Vincent in your projects: "His voice was soft and very slow As he quoted The Raven from Edgar Allen Poe: “and my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor shall be lifted? Nevermore…”
I read this once and twice and allomst cried because I knew I didn't have any stamps, papers, embellisments, nothing with a crow. So out of desperation I googled crow digi stamp and crossed my fingers! LOL I was thrilled to find MyGaphico's creepy crow set and I knew just what I wanted to do! The background of the card is made with glimmer mists, crumpled up and smoothed out again the give it texture. Then added some double ruffle ribbon to finish! The jar is a project I have wanted towork on FOREVER! I have a collection of jars that I wanted tomake a spooky set of candy jars but never started. When I saw black licorice at the grocery store I knew I had to make a jar for crows feet! Thanks for visiting!

This is just a little card I made for my youngest son. He loves to take my cards everywhere with him and this one is super glued down to be extra durable! I made the card using Original Cowboy Kid digi from 2 Cute! Isn't he adorable?!?! For this card I didn't use any designer paper just blue and brown cardstocks and a woodgrain background stamp.
Allright I just have to show off my real life cowboy! These are the new pj's we got this weekend! LOL! I love this boy!!

Trick or Treat!

It's the second day of Halloween at Simply Betty Challenges! On the Second day of Halloween my Ghoul love gave to me... 2 Trick or Treaters dancing down the street!
