Halloween Witchy - CYS

Hello my friends, Happy Sunday. Only two more days until Halloween! Do you celebrate? Do you still take the kids Trick or Treating or do something else - party, Trunk or Treat? I always loved to see the little children come by in their cute costumes. I dress up a little bit for work that I can get away with: my ghost earrings and Halloween socks

My card that I have to share with you is in celebration of Halloween. One of the groups I belong to on Splitcoaststampers.com is the Challenge Your Stash. Every month one of the members is the hostess and she picks the theme. Then each of us use only those items we already own to make our card - no using anything new. This month Jody was our hostess and her challenge was to make a Halloween card - either cute or spooky. As I said, I love Halloween, but I think my card is probably a little spooky, but hopefully also cute.
Materials Used
Image - Whimsey Stamps - Elf Queen
Cardstock - Xpress It Blending Card; Stampin Up Orchid Opulence
All embellishments from my stash
Copic Markers -B0000; C00, C0; T5, T7; V01, V06, V12; Y0000, YG11, YG61, YG63

That's about it for now. Be back later with another card.

I am submitting this for the following challenges:
Come and Get It - Halloween
Glitter N Sparkle - Halloween
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - Anything Goes
Pile It on - October or Cobwebs/Spiders
The Corrosive Challenge - Anything Goes

Postage Due - CCC

Hi my friends. The 21st has come and gone. That's the day I was supposed to be getting this posted but I happened to be out of town this past weekend in San Antonio with my two daughters. They treated me to a girls' weekend for my birthday. It was fabulous. The weather was perfect and we three had a great time. Lots to do there and we only did a drop in the bucket. A river cruise along the Riverwalk was first, then the Alamo and the Tower of the Americas. Went to the Majestic Theater (beautiful) to see The King and I and then a trip to Market Square. In between these events was lots of walking and eating!  The car stayed parked in the garage the whole time and lucky we had great weather with all the walking we did.

Back to the real world. Today I have a card for the Creative Card Chicks Monthly Challenge on Splitcoaststampers. Our hostess for this month is Sue aka stampinspooky. I must say this kit was a challenge for me, but once I thought about it and moved things around, it came together.
The stamps are from a Stampin Up set called Postage Due. I used Tangerine Tango for my card base and mat. The border was sent in the kit cut from the same color cardstock. The designer paper is from Stampin Up Venetian Romance. The butterflies came in the kit, but I added the bling to the large one and along the upper right edge. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with this one yet, so I didn't add a sentiment to the front. I'll figure that out later and put it on the inside.

Thanks for stopping by.

Spooky - CYS

Hello again my friends. Happy Thursday. It's the 28th of the month so that means it's another challenge from Challenge Your Stash on Splitcoaststampers. The idea is to use things that are in your stash and not go buy something new to use to make your card. We are given a theme to use and then go from there. This month our hostess was Terry S and her theme was to use Washi tape or our cards. I was good with that. I have a whole box of Washi that I hardly ever use, so it was good to get some of it out to play with. I had a Halloween theme in mind.

Materials Used:
Image - Besties - Not So Wicked Wendy
Sentiment - from some dp in my stash
Cardstock - Xpress It Blending Card; Stampin Up Pumpkin Pie
Designer Paper - A piece from my stash.
Accessories - Washi Tape - C3, C5, C7; E25; E50, E51, E53; E93; G21, G24, G28; R20; V01, V04, V05; Y19, Y21, Y28; YR15, YR16, YR18; YR24

That's it for today.
