Waiting for Snow

I have been participating in the Halloween challenges over at Well, actually, that just means I have been buying lots of beads from Lima, lol. This is my Halloween entry, a Spooky necklace.

The Hemp is tied in knots, and look like spider legs when it is hanging around my neck.

That's an Earthenwood pendant, with one lonely fall colored leaf- all of the other leaves on there are C Koop enameled black or gray leaves.

Halloween isn't over, it's one of my fav times of year. But with 10 inches of snow projected for tonight, I went Christmas shopping today, lol... my all time favorite time of year!!!

I am going to put some treats out this evening for the chipmunks and squirrels, and have my own Trick or Treat party. Hopefull the bears have gone to bed, and won't bother us for chocolate. Then I will sit back for the wintry show that is coming to my big screen TV overnight (think sliding glass doors looking into the woods!) and watch while I drink my morning coffee. Better than any TV you have, I bet!

My only concern? I'm by myself, and will I be able to get the car out to go home Sunday night- well, if not, lol, they can find me in the Spring!

Inside Out cards

I'm not sure if someone else has already coined the phrase 'Inside Out Cards', but I am having fun doing it! I have been putting the phrase on the outside, and the embellishments on the inside, lol, just for fun.

The outside sticker is from a million years ago, I had to put glue on the back since it was no longer sticky. The paper is from a Recollections Halloween pad. Martha Stewart glittery bats finish the outside-

Inside, an alcohol inked background with an Inkadinkadoo witch stamped on it- and some Memory Box papers with some more of Martha's bats.

Finally!! Papertrey Ink!!

Oh dear, the colors are off- but I hope you get the point.

PTI ink is finally here!!! Yay!!! It is working perfectly for me, and I am so happy!!

A little close-up of some mottling, but that is the nature of the beast, so I expect it. This was the first use of Sweet Baby, and the third impression with the new stamps.

The other color ink is Momento Desert Sand. Other than that, it's all PTI products.

I have to go fast and cheap on the baby cards- I tipped up the Aqua Mist button bottle and look what rolled out~ today is definitely my day!

Bouncing Bears

Isn't it lovely when you get all kinds of pieces to match? Look how the ribbon and the stamp are the same; Suzy's Zoo. I'm just a sucker for images like this!

I used PTI's Lavender Moon as the base, then layered with white and a polka dotted paper. The stamped dots came out black of course, so I went over them with some Spica pens, and actually added more dots so it looked more like the paper.

I ran the dotted paper through the polka dot CB folder, just to add some more dimension- sweet!

A PTI Baby

I want to be using some of my Papertrey papers, lol, but since Everyday Blessings is still being sold as 6 x 6, I want to wait to buy it again until it is 8 x 8. They need to hurry, I don't have much left!

Some Quick and Easy Baby Cards

I know I have been AWOL, but the baby card making has gone on, lol, and I keep photographing them just waiting for a moment to put some on the blog. Tonight I decided enough is enough; maybe I'll start showing a couple at a time-

The first is the easiest- I used a Memory Box card and envie, a CB embossing folder that stopped near the bottom of the white layer, then stamped 'adorable' on the bottom right edge. Knot of ribbon and done!

These are a little more involved, but really, the most time was spent on finding 2 designs in the same color, lol. The bunny is an older SU stamp, just paper pieced over Spellbinders labels. I used a bit of glitter glue on the bows to make them stand out a little- Bingo!

Quick and Easy!
