WCMD: Halloween Wishes

Happy World Card Making Day!

I usually don't get much time to get crafty on the weekends, but I made sure to squeeze in enough time for at least ONE card for WCMD!

After creating (& uploading to FB) my card from yesterday using the freebie from Simply Betty Stamps, I received another freebie- Dark Fairy Brittany!  Now, usually 'dark' images aren't really my thing... but she was fun to color!

I added in some purple and aqua to lighten her up a bit.  I wanted my card to be pretty simple to keep the focus on the fairy. I stamped the background with a spiderweb image and layered on a few pieces of Halloween patterned papers. I remembered I had a stash of spider buttons and thought they were a perfect fit!

Happy October!

It's finally October which means Halloween is right around the corner!

Halloween is becoming one of my favorite holidays- I don't do the the scary-horror stuff, much more into the fun, cute & dress-up part of it! Think I love it more since having my kids- my son is SO excited! (now just to finish putting his costume together!)

Anyway, if you're not apart of the Passionate Paper Creations & Friends on Facebook- I suggest you check it out.  There's all kinds of fun going on over there!

This weekend there is some fun going on sponsored by Simply Betty Stamps- freebies involved! Starts off with this cute Little Pumpkin Lilly... if you complete a picture with her & upload it, you'll get another freebie! Hooray!

Since I loved the look of the copics on kraft, I decided to do it again!

Simply Betty Pumpkin Lilly

Finished it off by layering Halloween themed patterned papers, doily, burlap, and some twine!

Happy Weekend!

I Love You & Coffee

Ok, back again (last time... for today!) Post #3 for me!

I'm just having too much fun with all these coffee cards! Surprisingly, at least for me, this is probably the most I've been able to participate compared to the previous hops!

A few weeks ago, I had colored this awesome coffee pot from Sweet Stamp Shop and stuck him on a little tag - my favorite one from Pretty Pink Posh (posted to my instagram) and finally managed to put it on a card! I found some cute Fall patterned paper scraps in my stash and made this card pretty simple.

Love You & Coffee

OK.. so I think that's it for me this time around for entries for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! (have you SEEN all the fabulous sponsors????) But it IS still early in the week...

Thanks for stopping by!

OH, the Places You'll Go!

I have a few more cards to share today- this is my 2nd post today! Please check out my first card for the Tiddly Inks Challenge HERE!

I've really been dying to play along with the now monthly challenges over at The Greeting Farm! I'm squeezing in just under the deadline for this month's 'Back to School' challenge!

I've had this sweet Oliver & Amelia- Little Dreamer set for what seems like forever and never inked it up til NOW! While it's still few years before my son goes to school (thank goodness- because I am SO not ready for that stage yet!) I had to use the lil Oliver! :)

TGF Back to School

I had this Dr. Seuss quote stamp laying around and thought it was a perfect fit!

I have one more card to post... coming soon...

Gettin' Krafty with Tiddly Inks!

Taking a break from my coffee cards to post the newest challenge over at Tiddly Inks!

Get Krafty!

Now... it really shouldn't be news that I love kraft- my cards always seem to have some item of kraft on them! For my card today, I decided to try something a little different and print my digi image directly on kraft cardstock!  I colored this adorable Wryn in the Fall image with copics and came up with this...

Krafty Tiddly Inks

Layered with some more krafty goodness called it done! :)

Hope to see you join in the kraft fun- check out all the details here!

Love you a LATTE!

I couldn't let the weekend go by without making *another* coffee themed card for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

I had this idea pop in my head late (always late) last night and could finally put the finishing touches on it this morning!

I think this one shouts a little more fall... (now, if only the weather would get the hint!)

Love you a LATTE

I stamped the mug from Simon Says Stamp's What's Brewing?, randomly stamped some "falling" leaves (from Lawn Fawn)- colored with copics and topped with some Wink of Stella. I ink splattered my white cardbase with various Distress Inks, layered a woodgrain embossed piece with a kraft doily and thought it was still missing something... so out came the gold paper and love diecut from Winnie & Walter!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cream in my Coffee

Woohoo!  Happy Friday and Happy Fall Coffee Lover's blog hop day!

I have a few cards in mind for the hop, but this is the first one I've been able to finish so far. I used this sweet Cocoa Wishes (but made her cocoa into coffee!) from Tiddly Inks, so cute & definitely one of my favorite Tiddly images!

Oh, and since it's not *that* cold here... we're still hanging onto 100 degree weather (yuck) so I colored her ear muffs into headphones... she's enjoying her cup of joe while listening to some tunes! :) But I did incorporate some fun fall-ish colors!

Cream to my coffee

I stamped the background with stamps from Lawn Fawn (Love You a Latte), and the sentiment is one from Hero Arts (Need Caffeine), I had just masked and stacked it instead of leaving it long.

Have a fabulous weekend! & happy hopping!
