Happy Halloween & Pink Cat Studio Challenge

I just want to wish everyone a safe and happy halloween! I hope you eat lots of yummy candy!

Pink Cat Studio's challenge today was to make a Christmas card using non-traditional Christmas colors. As most of you know what I would pick...I ran to my scrap room and made a pink card haha! The set is with an older Christmas set that Pink Cat Studio has and is still available for purchase in the store.

Mojo Monday Challenges

YAY! I'm alive and well. Last week was a rough one. I was really sick with a cold but feeling A LOT better now.

I was up late last night visiting blogs. I was behind on Mojo Monday Sketch challenges so I did two of them today! I just love Julee's sketches they are so much fun. The first card was for Mojo Monday week #57 . Julee also inspired me by the card that she did here the colors and her card is just SO beautiful. I'm loving the colors together which were Pixie Pink, Kiwi Kiss and Tangerine Tango. The stamp set is a VERY old one from Stampin Up that I borrowed from my Stampin Up demo Kathy...she was so sweet and lent it to me. I thought it was perfect for breast cancer month...which I finally got a chance to do a card before the month is over.

Here is my second card that I did was for Mojo Monday week #58 . The stamp set is an older one from Pink Cat Studio that you can still purchase here

I'm sick but still kicking!

So I have a REALLY bad cold but, I still managed to get some crafting done yesterday. I sat in front of the TV all day and finished making all my little spiders and also made some cute little Frankie's to give to my parents, brother, niece and nephew for Halloween. I got inspired to make these when I was blog surfing and found them on Cambria's blog here and as easy as she said they are to make...I totally agree with her...they are not only SUPER easy but fun too! Thank you Cambria for the directions and inspiration!

On a side note I haven't put the candies in them or tied the ribbon at the top.

Stress-Free Thrusday!

WOW it's been since the 7th that I have posted on blogger! I didn't think it had been that long. Things have been kind of crazy around here but, it's calming down (i hope). Me and Trish got together yesterday here at my house and sometime last week at her house so that means I've got LOTS to show you!

I'll first start off with the cards that we made last week. I recently purchased 2 of the newest stamps from Clear Dollar Stamp so we played with those first! I just LOVE these 2 new stamp sets! Trish will be posting the cards she made on her blog soon so be sure to visit!

Here are the projects we worked on yesterday. The little spider idea I got from who then got it from aren't these the cutest little spiders? And really simple to make. I bought a little Halloween tree that I want to put spiders on sometime before Halloween. For now I'm going to use them at my Pampered chef party this weekend for my guests to take.

These little tins I found at Targets dollar spot and new I had to alter some. The one with the ghost is mind and the other Trish altered.
These were some wooden plaques I purchases at the Dollar Tree a while back and thought we could decorate them for Halloween . The first one is mine and the 2nd is Trish's..I just LOVE the purple on hers it really makes it pop!

My Cali girl Jen Jen gave me these BIG ol' clothes pins a couple years ago and I never did anything with them so when Trish was here yesterday I decided to pull them out so we could alter them. Tink matches my room so you guessed it the tink is mine (Jen had just also sent me these tink embelisments a couple weeks ago so I had to use them.) Trish altered the other clothes pin.

Have a WONDERFUL weekend and thanks for visiting my blog!

Birthday Goodies

My cousin Kelly's birthday was last week and so I made her a few things. She loves frogs so first I made this card. The froggy stamp that I used was from the set Fun Times from Close to my Heart.

I also made her this little altered altoid tin.

And for a while now she has been wanting a picture board. So I decided to make her one and she really loved it!

Win some Stamps from Pink Cat Studio!

Melissa (Pink Cat Studio) won't be releasing any stamps this month but, she put together a little contest together because she LOVES to give away stamps!
Put your thinking cap on and leave a comment here at this link and tell Melissa what theme of stamps you would like to see her do next. Be as detailed or a general as you like and feel free to make several suggestions. Think of this as a brain storming session with a prize at the end. She will randomly pick two winners and they will each receive a grab bag of stamps. The contest will end on Wed. Oct. 8th at 5 pm EST and She will post the winners on her blog on Thursday Oct. 9th.

The Angel Company Appreciation Party

This last Sunday I had an appreciation party for my circle of angels to thank them for joining the club. Last month was the last month for the club. I had food, games, prizes & gifts for all of them and we had LOTS of fun!!!
These are the little goodies that I made for them. The first picture...I made sunflower pens, second picture are mini comp journals and the third picture are sunflower pins. As you can tell I tried my best to go with a sunflower theme since it is fall and all the pretty sunflowers are out EVERYWHERE!

Here are the make n' takes that they all got to do. The first picture is the coaster boxes they made and the two others are cards.

Oh and I almost forgot to share with you all the cards the circle girls made. At the end of the party I had a contest for them to make a card with all the supplies that were on the table (from all the other projects). They freaked thinking ok...I come here to learn how to make cards now I'm on the spot to make one all by myself and no help??? HAHA! I wanted to show them that they can really do it on their own and they did!!! Check them out...they all did a WONDERFUL job don't ya think?

A Productive Day!

Today I got 3 cards done! I'm only going to post 2 for the sketch challenges that I did. The reason why is because today is my cousin Kelly's Birthday and I'm making her a few other things and will post them all together in one post.

The first sketch challenge I did is for Little C's weekly challenge #11 that is posted here on Jen's blog . I used the stamp "Hug for Ike" that I got from Little C's store a couple weeks ago because I won one of her challenges and got to use $10 in her store! Isn't that awesome? and the stamp is JUST TO ADORABLE for words!

The next sketch challenge is from Poetic Artistry here . Here sketches and all of her cards inspire me so much they are beautiful so go visit her blog.
