Gift & Card

Hello Friends,

When I was in the hospital, my friend Debby sent me flowers and lots of cards.  I wanted to make her a little gift and a thank you card.

Here is the gift box with a candle & some candy.  The waterfall card and owl box are from Acorn Autumn SVG Cuts

Here is the waterfall closed.

And this is what it looks like open.  The sentiments are from Craftin Desert Divas Short & Sweet Tags

This is a closeup of the owl.  Isn't he cute?  The skittles are from Double Click Connections and I used Quick Quotes Powder Puff Chalks for all of the chalking.

I am entering this project into the following challenges:

Decorate To Celebrate - Challenge #110 Anything Goes - (treat box)
Craftin Desert Divas - Linky Party Photo Inspiration 

DL ART - October Linky Challenge
Melonheadz Friends - Halloween/Harvest Challenge

Happy Haunting!

Hello My Friends,

Well, I am sick today, I have a sinus infection and an ear infection.  Went to the doctor yesterday and got some antibiotics.

I am still playing along with Craftin Desert Divas and getting the free SVG every day, I, am so sad that I missed yesterday, an owl!  My favorite!

Anyway, today I made another candy holder card (I need to make three of them for my neighbors that come to our house and party with us on Halloween night).

I used the "Happy Haunting" SVG Freebie.  Had to get out the glossy accents again and use it on the ghost to make him shine in the moonlight!

I also used the Craftin Desert Divas "Batty For You" stamp set to make the background. I colored it with copic markers and inked it with powder puff chalking inks.

Since I had to block part of the stamp with the ghost svg, I used it again on the inside and added the sentiment.

I am entering this candy card into the following challenges:

Craftin Desert Divas - Linky Party - Things With Wings (bats)
Decorate To Celebrate - Challenge # 110 Anything Goes
Die Cuttin Divas - Challenge #235 Anything Goes

By The Light Of The Moon

Hello My Friends,

I am really having fun with the free SVG's that they are giving away over at Craftin Desert Divas.  Today I am using the free SVG "By The Light Of The Moon"

I put her on a candy card box that my friend Tara told me about available in the Silhouette Store.

The sentiment is from Craftin Dessert Divas "Witch Crossing" Stamp Set.

Here is the inside, I used more stamps from the same set.

I did a little copic coloring on the broom.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

DL Art - September Linky Challenge

Thanks so much for stopping by my pals!  I appreciate hearing from you!

Dem Bones!

Hello My Friends,

Craftin Desert Divas is having a September Stamp Release and everyday they are giving away a different SVG.  Yesterday they gave away this very cute skeleton.  Jeepers Creepers.  

I have decided to make a treat bag for all of my neighbors that come and eat chili and hang out with us on Halloween night.  So here is Jeepers Creepers made into a treat bag.   I only changed the SVG slightly by giving my little skeleton a little skeleton heart.

This is quite a time consuming SVG because you have to cut paste each bone on to the black background separately.  But I LOVE doing intricate work like this!  Here is a hint, cut the white pieces last and leave them on your mat so that you can pick up each piece individually and put it in place.

So yesterday when I was hopping through the Craftin Desert Divas Design Team looking for letters to win this fella, I came upon the most beautiful card at Luv Scrapping Together, she made the eyes of her cat look so cool using Glossy Accents.  I looked around my craft room and I own Glossy Accents.  I decided to use it on my skeletons bones.  I may have gone a little crazy with it (first time I have ever used it).

Can you tell from this picture that the bones are glossy?

I also wanted to show you the side of the bag.  It is bones!

I did not put the bones on the front because I did not think my skeleton would show up against them.

I am entering this treat bag into the following challenges:

DL Art - September Linky Challenge
Come and Get It Challenge - Clear it Out (used scrap pieces (stash item) (s to make skeleton & sentiment) & used Glossy Accents which were so stashed I didn't know I owned.
Crafty Calendar Challenge - Anything Goes
Craft for the Craic - Anything but a square or a treat bag okay?
PDE Linky Party - Anything Goes

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I appreciate all of your comments!
