C4C60 - Spooooky Halloweeeeen.....

Welcome to another Crazy 4 Challenges Saturday!!
This week, our hostess with the mostest, Silke Ledlow, has us celebrating HALLOWEEN!!! Our challenge is to make any card or project with a Halloween theme!!

I pulled out one of my ALL TIME fave Halloween sets from SU!
I'm not really sure, but I think this might be the first time I've inked up this particular stamp and I LOVE it!

I have to say I'm pretty happy with how this card turned out...I hope you like it too!

I stamped and heat embossed both the tree and the jack-o-lantern on Daffodil paper and then sponged all the edges with Pumpkin Pie ink.

Well that's it for me today! I hope you'll play along with us and if you're looking for more Halloween inspiration, just head on over to the Crazy 4 Challenges blog to see what the rest of the team has come up with!

Thanks so much for stoppin' by for a little Stamps 'n' Coffee!

Naughty Boy List

So I just found the ABC Christmas Challenge Blog and thought what a great idea...I just wish I had found it sooner...I'd be done all my Christmas cards already...or more of them anyway!!
Anyhoo...they have a Sketch Challenge going on this well as needing THREE 'Vs' on your card!!
OK....well I got the sketch down no problem! As for the 3 'Vs'...well let's see..
1)It is Virescent (greenish in color)
2)Vertical sketch
and 3) VERY funny?!

Hopefully it qualifies...LOL!!

I really do find this sentiment very funny...I hope you do too!! I know I have a couple of girlfriends that would get a kick out of this card for sure!!

Thanks so much for stoppin' by!!

CASEing the Stampalicious DT!

Well I had way too much fun playing in my craft room yesterday!!! We are having a really fun challenge over at the Totally Stampalicious Blog, including a really fun PRIZE!!

The challenge is to CASE (or copy) one of the Stampalicious DT's designs!!
You can find a link to all the DT's blogs to the right of my page!

I couldn't decide on just one, (in fact, if I had time I would have CASE'd the whole team) so I picked THREE!!

First up is a CASE of one of Becky's awesome creations! I used our sassy Morning Margaret!
I missed a layer here, but I think I captured her CAS style and I absolutely loved the textured bg!!
Here is a link to Becky's card!

And here is a card using our Wino JJ!! I CASED one of Cindy's FAB cards...I absolutely love the dimension she always captures on her work!
Here is a link to Cindy's card!

And last but not least is Excited Scarlette! I CASE'd Moniques beautiful style for this one...I really loved the button/bow combo and the ribbon tag...very cool!
Here is a link to Monique's card!

Well that's it....three's a charm anyway, right!! ;-)
We would love to have you play along with us this week....and why not...maybe YOU could be the lucky winner of a $15 Gift Certificate from Totally Stampalicious!!
Just post your card or project to your blog or on-line gallery and link it back to the
Totally Stampalicious Blog

It's another beautiful October Saturday and this week, fellow Crazy, Silke Ledlow, has us creating cards to celebrate AUTUMN/FALL!

Ah well...the tree definitely has an Autumn-ish look to it!!

You can find more beautiful inspiration over at the Crazy 4 Challenges blog so head on over and check it out!!

Well here's my sample for this these these stamps....not so crazy about this card!! LOL!!! It just didn't come together the way I imagined it in my mind! I think it's the weird ribbon doo-dad that's throwing me off!! Oh well...maybe I'll do better next week!!
