Trick or Treat!!!

Good morning!!!  I had such a nice day yesterday--nice and quiet!  I cleaned up my entire stamp room, and even unpacked all my stuff from the stamp camp on Saturday!!  It looked so pretty--that is until I started stamping again!! haha!!  But, I did manage to get some things done!!  Here's a card I made for two challenges:  Gretchen's Inspiration in Action, and Stacy's Curtain Call #8!


The layout is from the sketch, and the colors (Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper white) are from the Curtain Call!  I used the Holiday Best Hostess Set and Halloween Frights stamp sets.  For the sentiment, I colored the rubber and then stamped.  I used orange glitter for the pumpkin!!  The paper is from the Cast-a-Spell Designer Paper pack--it's such a fun pack of paper, and this one fit the color challenge perfectly!!!  It was a fun card to make!!!

Be sure to check out this week's Deal of the Week!!  It will be posted at 10am MST!!!

Christmas Card Camp!!!

WOW!!!  We had such fun yesterday!!  I was exhausted when I got home, but it's always worth it!!  We had 25 ladies come to our 2nd Annual Christmas Card Camp, and we had a blast!!!  They each made 30 Christmas Cards, 5 each of the following six designs:

(note:  I didn't take pics before the camp, and my sixth sample is missing!  So, only five are pictured here)





Have a GREAT day!!!
