Trick or Treat

April fools no, no Merry Christmas no that;s not right either I mean Happy Halloween That's what it is I think! We Had a FREAK SNOW STORM so I didn't know what time of the year it was....This is crazy I am just glad our trick or treating is always on Halloween night and it is gonna be 52 so that's better than in the 30's....
I made this Trick or Treat sign I think it turned out really cute!
I got the sign from Michael's for about $2.00 painted it black.
I added some Halloween paper
Used Cricut carts A child's year for the fireman and witch and moon
Paper doll dress up for the tree
Celebrate with flourishes for the Trick or Treat
Pop dots
Martha Stewart corner spider web and fence punches...
and some ribbon....
I sat it on a small easel to display it I think I am gonna make one for Christmas also!
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day

Hubby's Birthday card

Happy Thursday all, hope you are having a good day ...It is dark and raining here gonna get cold and mix with s-n-o-w later do you believe that already, I am so not ready for this.
Made this card for my Hubby's birthday on Wednesday . Bo Bunny had a great card sketch challenge so I thought I would give it a try. I couldn't get a great picture it is so dark here the top part of the card is really a tan color....
I used
Cricut cart Art of Philosophy : for the square card cut @ 5 1/2 ins
Scalloped card that I layered on top of the square card is cut @ 4 1/2 ins cut a 2nd one out of black and layered it under the scalloped one.
Star cut @ 2 1/2 ins and I scored & folded it to make it 3D so it really pops!
2 Circles cut @ 2- 1/2 & 2-1/4 pop dotted
Black ink ...inked the edges and distressed the circle
Black dash ribbon and added some white dots along the edge, with some black skittles.
Stamped Happy Birthday
I am very please at how it turned out...
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
Hugs Wanda

Iused Cricut Cart Art of Philososphy for Banner / scalloped boarder/tree/fall/ flowers and the leaves that I stamped with the matching stamps from close to my heart...It is so easy I love how the stamps tell you what size to cut the macthing image and they fit together perfect....EASY!
Oh I so can't wait to play more with this cart sooooo much to do on it!
For the fence I used Pooh and friends.
This is a picture of my GD Courtney and her bff Baylie we went to a fall festival they had a blast together sorry the picture is not the greastest it was taken with my phone...
Used orange ribbon for the the banner , inked the edges and doodled used pop dots too.
Doodled on the scalloped boarder
Inked the edges of the flowers and destressed them a little... I added some buttons on the tree also for a little whimsy....
I used cuttle bug folder to emboss the fence and inked it!
Inked around the edge of the paper and used pop dots on the leaves....
Well thanks so much for stopping by and forget to come on over and play along with us @ SOUS!
