A Haunting We Will Go

Since we are the month of October, I have created a Halloween themed project for the Anything Goes challenge at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends.  This challenge we are sponsored by Kitty Bee Designs and Lemon Shortbread.




I have used an image from Kitty Bee Designs called Pumpkin Panda.


I also used a digital paper from Polka Doodles, some white web ribbon, some tombstones die cut from black cardstock with a Spellbinders die, and some Halloween embellishments that I received in a card swap.

Santa Ornaments

Middle of October already!  Where is the going to?  That means we are just that bit closer to Christmas so some christmas inspiration today!  This card is for the mid-month inspiration at CHNC Extra for October.

I have used an image from a set at Bugaboo Stamps called Santas 3 Image Set.



I also used a paper from a christmas paper pad by Sugar and Spice Studio.  Colouring is with copic markers.  I added some sparkly foam reindeer as embellishments.  Matting is textured cardstock from American Crafts.

Football Season

I used to play football - some years back (don't like to think how many years back it was!!!).  My favourite team was Liverpool so I coloured this image in their team colours.

For some reason, the Anything Goes challenge wasn't coming up under the Saturday Weekly tab on the sidebar but after doing a search through all the recent posts I found it!

Autumn Leaves

I've been away with no internet and then spent the past few days since I've been back with my daughter who is home for the holidays.  In between times, I'm working through my e-mails too.  But what I've really wanted to do was craft!  This morning, I managed to find time to create a few cards!

Tulip Time

Today is the last day of the school term but I have the day off work.  I am going to a concert this evening and need to travel to get to it.   I have to work one week of the school holidays anyway so it will be nice to have today off and spend some time with my daughter.  I'm just squeezing in uploading this card before I head off.

Relax

We had a mixed day of weather today.  I suppose it is what is expected in springtime but I am definitely over the rain!
