LOTS of Challenges! Playing catch-up!


I've been away for several weeks, enjoying sights and sounds and smells and tastes of France and Italy...FABULOUS vacation...but it's OH-SO-GOOD to be home and in my happy room again, where I'm catching up on challenges and cards due for special occasions.


This week's Wednesday Stamper challenge is to create a Halloween card. This little owl uses Halloween colours, but a non Halloween sentiment, hope he still fits the challenge! The stamp is from Heather's Stamping Haven in Ottawa, and the sentiment is computer generated.



This week's Timeless Tuesday challenge over at Flourishes is to watercolour. Here's a scrapling I created, and also posted over at TwoPeas , where they're hosting a week long stamping extravaganza called "Stamptoberfest..." check out the message board...great challenges, delightful member RAKS, and a SUPER GENEROUS grand prize package! The tree stamp is from Rubber Stamp Avenue, coloured direct to rubber with Tombow watercolour markers, and misted with water, then stamped on watercolour paper. The sentiment stamp is from Amuse.


This is a card I did to fit Charisma Cards distressed challenge, and "Theme Thursday's," which is faces. I LOVE this stamp, it's an oldie from Magenta. The dainty gold embossed flourishes are from Crafty Individuals.





The current "Cute Card Thursday" challenge is "Candy Corn," and over at "One Powerful Hour," we had to create something spooky. I did this wee Halloween thing for my grandson, whose current obsession is spiders! The wooden coffin is from Michael's Arts and Crafts.


For this project, I used the Dreamweaver spider brass stencil , the Dreamweaver spiderweb brass stencil, and Dreamweaver embossing pastes, all from Quietfire Design.


Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog today! I'd love to come see YOU too!
