Happy Halloween!!!

It's finally here the big day and most of all my favorite day of the year! I'm HOPING we get lots of trick-or-treaters tonight! I love seeing all the kidos all dressed up and having fun.

I hope you and your kidos have a fun and safe Halloween.

Here are the last of my Halloween projects/treats that I wanted to share with you. I made this sign for a friend of mine. Her birthday is really close to Halloween and she also loves the holiday so I thought this would be perfect. I made it all on my cricut! I got the cutest freebie MTC witch shoes/legs from Scrap n Creations. She has LOTS of fun freebies go check her blog out! I can't remember where I got the witch hat but it was also a freebie on a blog and when I find the link I will be back to post it on this post. The goo is from Scrapcations Getaway Blog!

When I seen these ADORABLE oreo suckers I knew I had to make them! I got the recipe from How Does She? ... HERE! They are so much fun and easy to make and on top of that they are SO YUMMY! Go check them ladies out they have so much more fun on their site!

A Few More Halloween Cards

Burrr! It's chilly this morning! I wanted to come by and share with you all a few more cards that I made this last week...before my day gets crazy!!!

The first card here is a cute Dracula card. The stamp set I used was the Sept. Stamp of the Month called Thriller! The whole set is just adorable! I found a picture online of the whole set to share also...If anyone happens to want to purchase one of these (I know it's a little late) I have extra for sale just let me know!

The next two cards are some cuties I made using some $1 stamps from Mike's that I bought a few months back.

Thanks for stopping by have a great Friday!

More Halloween Spooks

Oh how I LOVE Halloween!!! I have been making at least 2 cards everyday...I'm so blessed to have this time in my craft room so soon after hubby's surgery. He's been so busy watching games on tv and all the fear fest movies! So he gives me a little break!

I wanted to share with you two cards I made today. The first one I used the CUTEST little bat from DZ Doodles called Batty Characters that is in the store right now for purchase! I cut out the spider web border with my cricut isn't it so cute? I got the SVG file from Scrapcation Getaway >>> HERE! She has LOTS of cool free SVG's go on and check her out!

The second card I made was inspired from a card on Jeanette Lynton's blog >>> HERE! I just thought it was to cute and I was dying to use the spooky tree SVG cricut cut out that I got from My Cricut Scrapbooking blog >>> HERE!

Don't forget you still have a little more than a week to join DZ Doodles challenge and pick up that adorable freebie!!!

Hello! I didn't get a chance to get my DZ Doodles challenge card today (maybe tomorrow) but, I did want to come on really quick before dinner and post some cards I made before hubby's surgery. My bestest friend Mary Jane gave me the NEW adorable & cute 2 step owl punch from Stampin Up and I just had to fit sometime in before surgery to use it! The little owl is just TOO DARN CUTE!!! I made 3 cards!

The first one was hubby's get well card, the pink one was for Mary Jane as a little gifty and the 3rd was the first get well I made for hubby but then looked to much like 4th of July haha!

I can't believe Halloween is just around the's one of my favorite holiday's of them all! I got a little time in between playing a nurse today to make a card. I used 3 different images from DZ Doodles. Diane (owner of DZ Doodles) has been drawing her little fingers away and making the cutest digital images! Go on over to the store >>> CLICK HERE and check them out! The 3 images that I used are Haunted House, Rickety Fence, and Silly Spider.

Before I go on to posting my card...there is a challenge going on right now at DZ Doodles SNR group and PCP along with a Halloween freebie..which I will be using tomorrow to make a card to share with you stay tuned!

PS: Hubby's surgery went well and he's recovering! It will be about 6 months to a year for a full recovery but he's on the right track so far! We are just glad it's done and no more worrying. Thanks everyone for your thoughts and prayers.

I can't believe that this is my first post since July 1st! How time gets away from us. So many things have happened all summer long in my life..some good and some bad. But I'm hoping things stay going everyone keep me and my family in your thoughts and prayers! My hubby will be getting a total elbow replacement in less then 2 weeks so I'm hoping this will be the last of my down time so I can be back here and in my craft room making cards and scrapbooking again! I have made a few in between this all but nothing like normal for me! So after the 15th and time to get home from the hospital and get him settled in I'll BE BACK to attack (keeping my fingers crossed).
