Glad to see that you are back safe and sound. I've enjoyed my visits this week with all your wonderful stuff! I've noticed, there are a lot of you who love Halloween like I do. I've really enjoyed your Halloween creations so much.
Speaking of. . .(close your eyes Bonnie!)
Skeletons are one of my most favorite characters during Halloween. Isn't that cut out circle feature cool? I got my inspiration from THIS CARD. When I saw the card that inspired me, this one came into my head. I used various stamps for this: The big skull and Halloween ticket are by Craft Smart (wood mount), the skeleton is by My Minds Eye, and the skeleton hand holding the ticket is by my buddy Mark at Deadbeat Designs, and the French script background is Stampabilities. This is a 5 1/2 X 5 1/2 square card.
I'm sending this one to my Vet's office. I used real gauze to wrap a piece of beige colored card stock. The image is by Stampendous.
Love this Halloween martini glass by Impression Obsession. Super quick and easy card to make for those "adult" Halloween lovers on your list. Colored it all with Bic markers. The background paper is My Mind's Eye.
OK, Halloween stuff shown, now my Fall project (You can open your eyes now Bonnie):
I bought the template for this box months ago and just now got around to using it. It is a great box with a drawer for cards (holds 6 A2 sized cards perfectly) and a shelf for the envelopes. The template is by Creations by AR which you can find HERE. These are a sample of the cards that are inside:
Same stamp, just colored differently. The first has just solid color trees and the bottom has variegated colored leaves. I colored the bottom by just making lots and lots of dots with different colored markers. On both, I added the dots at the bottom of each tree to simulate fallen leaves. The stamp is by Memory Box. There are 3 each for a total of 6 cards in the set. Each says something different. I'm giving this set to my Mom and sister.
