Halloween crafting and card making

I have a friend with a birthday on halloween and another friends birthday was Friday but she loves Halloween, so there are their birthday cards and then I made a Halloween card. All stamps are from the Wicked stamp set from Close to my Heart. I adore their stamps. Used cholocate CTMH destressing in for the broom and stamped first in black and then in purple for the witches. I absolutely love this witch. She is so chic! So, for one friends birthday I made her a witch and pumpkin garland.  I made bunch of pumpkins out of paper towel roll I had been saving. I flattened it andthen cut in 1/2 inch strips. I used 6 strips for each  pumpkin and cut and folded some leftoved bits to make the stem. all was hot glued after each was painted and paint had dried.  I used garden twine to string it on. This was a pretty fast project and it was definitely fun.Around the witched I sponge dapped purple and off white chalk in and chocolate ctmh destress ink. I sanded around all edges and inked with purple.

First blog on this

So, my old blog has been on Myspace and since so many of my friends never or stopped using myspace, I'm moved everything here.  A place to show off my crafts, card making, and gatherings with friends and family.   I'm working on serveral birthday cards and things.  Heres a bunch of small cards I created. Left two cards were for twin cousins birthday. Then  made several cards that loo like presents and the orange card is a series of stacked gifts. Most were cut from Cricut Wild Card cartridge.
