Frankie Basket

I just LOVE Halloween time! I've seen so many of you creating this Frankenstein card that I thought I'd give it a shot with the Baskets & Blooms here it is. Fill it with yummy treats and your kids will have a fun party gift for their classmates, or for any Halloween parties you might be having. Next I want to try a mummy or even a pumpkin. :o)

Just Because

I made this card last weekend while in Idaho visiting my parents. The guys were out turkey hunting and I was showing my mom all the cool new things from Stampin'UP!. She thought the Big Shot was very cool. We used the Birds & Bloom Sizzlits Die to make this card. Oh and I love the little Library Clips too. Even my mom commented on all the fun new clips and accessories to use now. This card might look a little familiar to some of you...I used some leftover paper from a card we made at my Open House a couple months ago.

Quick Thank You card

I needed to make a Thank You card quickly for a friend and of course my brain went dead when I tried to put something together fast. I wanted to use the Pocket Silhouettes, so I went to Splitcoast Stampers and saw this card right off the bat. It was perfect...I just changed the colors using SU! Elegant Eggplant and Lavendar Lace and the Rhinestone Circle brads. Thanks scrappinjulie for your idea!

But, Thanks Kristina! Thanks too for all the wonderful comments you all have left it just makes me want to stamp 24/7...wouldn't that be nice someday?

Have a good rest of the weekend!
