Happy Halloween!

I found it only fitting to share a spooktacular Halloween card with you today. This was actually one of the projects my Club Gals made at their last gathering. The bats are made using the butterfly punch and the 3/4"  inch circle punch. Too fun and super easy to do! The arrows are from the Circle Thinlets set. You get so many neat pieces with that set, it's awesome! Here's a close up of the bats:

Hope today is full of tasty treats! Happy Haunting!

My LOVE of World Card Making Day

In honor of World Card Making Day today, I spent time in my studio this morning right after breakfast (and while Saturday morning cartoons were on for Jack *wink wink*). I thought about what this special day means to me, and the first thought that came to my mind was 'LOVE'. I LOVE to stamp. I LOVE to create. I LOVE how my creations make others feel good. I LOVE how stamping has brought me so many wonderful friends over the years. I LOVE how I feel when I'm creating. So in honor of all this, I made this special card to honor this day and everything I LOVE about it!

I used a mixture of sets to create this special card: Gorgeous Grunge, Wonderfall, and Fabulous Phrases. I used the Typeset Alphabet Die for the letters which are popped up on dimensionals, the Word Window Punch to help with the "you" tag hanging from the letter L, the Small Heart Punch and small pearl inside the letter O (which is also popped up on dimensionals), and of course I had to incorporate Linen two places this time! *wink wink* I really do just LOVE this day! Happy Stamping!

Sweet Donna

Thought I would share some happy mail I received from my sweet friend, Donna. Hi Donna!  Isn't it just beautiful? I LOVE the simplicity of it, but striking quality it has. The flowers are actually cut out and popped up with dimensionals over the swipes of color. Oh, it's so much prettier in real life! Thank you Donna for brightening my day! *hugs* Happy Stamping!
