After last weekend's decorating and b-day card I've been in a Halloweeny mood. This week Sparkle has a sketch up for the challenge, so I pulled out the Halloween papers and set to work using Josh with this card since I had him already stamped out. I like to stamp an image a couple of times when I go to make a card that way I have one already to go next time around ;) The girls have had their costumes picked out for a couple weeks already, A wants to be Spidergirl again and this year C wants to be Batgirl. I love that they picked out superheroes for another year. As much as I like the Disney Princesses, I've always felt that women superheroes were much better role models ;) Anyway, I have all this cute Halloween paper from last year, this set is from My Minds Eye and I also have a bit of last years American Crafts Halloween line as well. I'm hoping to get in a little crop time tomorrow night at a friends, but we'll see. I also have a cute mermaid doll I made for A's b-day I haven't taken pics of yet which I'll hopefully get around to doing this weekend as well and I still have homework plus an art project to do before midterms next week. Anyway enjoy the card and have a fabulous weekend!
Nearly a month has flown by since I last made a post! While my classes aren't difficult and I've knocked out 2 of my 6 courses already (they were at your own pace online classes), I haven't set aside the time to craft even though I'm sure I could carve it out somewhere. Every weekend I tell myself, today I'm going to create! Of course from my lack of posts it's obvious that creating, I have not. Well, at least nothing of the scrappy or sewy sort. But this Sunday we're doing a family get together and I needed another b-day card, so it was the perfect reason to check out Sparkle's weekly challenge and play along with the sketch this week;)
This particular card is for one of my sis-in-laws. I love making her halloweeny b-day cards since hers is so close to the holiday. The girls and I are really excited for this weekend because not only are we having the birthday get together Sunday and A will be celebrating her 5th, but we are also decorating for Halloween on Saturday. It's a fun newer tradition for us now that we've been collecting decor the past couple years and the girls love going through the storage totes and pulling out all the fun holiday goodies! Anyway, sorry for such a long time between my last post, I'm hoping to get on at least once a week but we'll see ;) Either way enjoy the card and I hope you're all having a wonderful fall!
