Thinking of Halloween

Thank you for joining us for the September Blogging Friends hop. The theme for this hop is “All Hallows Eve”. Halloween is a difficult theme for me. I am probably the Halloween Grinch in Australia! My (boring) day job is a tax consultant, and 31st October is the last day of tax season. Either I get home when it is dark and everything is over, or if I do get home early, I am so exhausted that I sneak into the house, turn off the front lights and pretend I am not at home! Given all of this, I had to be a bit creative when I was making this card:

I don’t have any Halloween stamps, so I went scratching through my supplies. The trees are from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set, the clouds and fence were cut out using the sheep dies (Sale-A-Bration item available now), the cats were punched out with the cat punch (I sponged the edges of the cats with some Whisper White Craft Ink on a Sponge Dauber to make them a bit more visible against the fence) and the sentiment is from the Days To Remember stamp set. The slightly red moon came from the Glitter Ombre Specialty Paper and the glowing red eyes are the Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Now would be a good time to start making a stack of these cards to hand out around the neighbourhood so that everyone has their treats waiting for when the Spooks, Specters and Goblins come calling!!

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope everyone has a fun and creative weekend. Be sure to hop around and see what everyone has created.

Beauty Of Tomorrow Fall Card

Thank you for joining us for the August Blogging Friends hop. The theme for this hop is “Fall Days Are Coming”, and features products from the new mini catalogue. If you regularly follow my blog, you will know that my blog hop last week was a Summer Dream theme (if you missed it, you can click here to see my cute sheep card), and today we are on to the next season! This is part of the fun of being involved in a international group of talented people – we are all experiencing different seasons and (don’t get me started) time zones!!

Most of the products in this card are from the new July-December mini catalogue. The bundle that I have used is called Beauty of Tomorrow. The flowers are stamped (and then fussy cut) from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in the annual catalogue. The big leaf in the background is cut out of the Gold Shimmer vellum and the ribbon is Cherry Cobbler and Gold 1/2″ ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope everyone has a fun and creative weekend. Be sure to hop around and see what everyone has created.
