My Last Halloween Post

This is it. My final card for Halloween. I'm so glad I got to post them before the holiday was gone. It's so funny because she was the first halloween stamp I bought this season and now she's the last I posted, but so much fun to color! I can't wait to give her more love next year.
I'm making this one a quick post. I'm running late this morning! We have some really cool weather today and the house is just so cozy I didn't want to get out of bed!
It's going to be an worriful day...My big sister is in NJ and I'm sure she is without power after Hurricane Sandy but I just want to hear that she is ok. I also have many dear and wondeful friends that I just want to hear from too.
The main office of my job is located in NJ too. Too many people to worry about. My thoughts and prayers are with them all.

Trick or Treat

 Hello! The spooky day is nearing...My girls got thier first taste of the trick or treating over the weekend. So many events were happening around the area. This year I have a devil and and Pirate/Wench??? I want to say more of a wench because her pirate outfit is more colorful than a pirate.

Well Tilda is dressed as an adorable Tiger. This is not a Halloween stamp and I can't recall what collection she came out in but it certainly can be used here and I did! She is just too cute.

I'm a little bummed I couldn't get better pictures of her. They seem a little dark to me but I just couldn't seem to get the right lighting for her, sorry. I was tempted to take her outside to photograph but we are still really windy from Hurricane Sandy passing out coastline.
I can't remember where I found this little box but I "pinned" it so if you want you can find me here.

Whew I made it!

 Whew I made it! The last of the Halloween projects and cards are coming your way these next few days. They were sitting on my table just waiting to be put together but I had such a busy week and I just couldn't do it. I bought some really adorable stamps this year for Halloween and ran out of time. So next year I'll be sure to share earlier.
This is one of my new cuties. She is Maya from Whiff of Joy. I have to tell you that "scar" on her head is not part of the stamp and honestly I am not sure how that got there because it wasn't there when I colored her. I do have two little ghouls that sometime sneak over to my table. Just Sayin! Anywho because it looked to ghoulish I just went with it anyway.
This is a tall treat box! The recipent of this one will be eating candy for awhile! LOL!! Hope you like and come back again tommorrow for another Halloween treat!

A Witch for you...

My brain is has me thinking too hard lately, lol! Everyday now seems to be flying by and Halloween will be here before I know it! The weekend is going to be such a relief! I hope to get my final Halloween projects done. This year there was so many great stamps released for Halloween and not enough time! Here's a cute little witch and her broom from LaLa Land Crafts that knows the feeling. I had her colored last year but it was too late in the season to post so I tucked her away til this year. She's still one of my favorite little witches around!

So do you know what your going to be for Halloween? I've seen some really clever ideas out on Pinterest. My youngest wants to be a devil. She has flaming red hair so this should be interesting...she definately the spunk to pull it off, LOL!! An absolute cute devil of course! We'll be costume shopping this weekend.
Hope you have a great weekend, as always thanks for stopping by,

Pumpkin Vine Treat Box

Oh Sweet Friday! This was a verrrrry long week or I should say it felt that way. It  doesn't end though tomorrow I'm headed to Orlando for a birthday party for my little cousin Mason. He turned 3 yesterday. It's a pretty long drive but it will be fun to see the family. THEN I can sit back and relax for the rest of the weekend....after I mow the lawn....

All I know is I am going to fit some coloring time in there somewhere!
Here's a cute little box that I found on Splitcoaststampers. It's a great little treat box and super easy to make. My image is from There She Goes, Pumpkins on the Vine. Last week or so I posted a door hanger with this stamp set. It's what I love the most from them. Each set is so full of stamps to play with! She's done in Copics and the paper is from Echo Park's Chillingsworth collection. Hope you like!

The Best In the West

 Howdy Stamping Friends! Hope you all are starting your day better than mine. My refrigerator when kurplunk last night. I had to rush my groceries over to my sisters for a little "rental" space and fortunately I have a large freezer in the garage. There is nothing worse than reaching for what you think is going to be a cold glass of milk and it was not even close...yuck.

I'm really bummed because now I am stuck...I'm not quite ready for the remodel I want for my kitchen which I want to put Chrome or Nickel Finish appliances but right now the remainder of my appliances are white. What to do!
 Don't want to think about it anymore! This post is part 2 of  my stamping friend Wendy little ones inspirations. Her son, Nathan help design this stamp for Your Next Stamps and it just so happens to be named after him too. I believe I remember Nathan was this little westerner last year for Halloween. Now I know where his inspiration came from and did a fantastic job!
He's was so much fun to color in Copics and I had the perfect Cowboy paper from Best Creations. My favorite part besides the little cowboy itself,  is the bandana. This was such a fun card to put together! Hope you like it too!

One Little, Two little...

 One Little, Two little...Three little you remember that song in grammer school? Do they still sing it? I don't think my girls learned it there...Anyway, the little tune just popped up when I uploaded my pictures for posting. Now I can't get it out of my head!!
 My sister drives me crazy singing little tunes from any words or phrases that come up during our conversations. I think I counted 15 in a day!! I hope when she reads this...the little indian song sticks to her too!! LOL!!

This post is actually for stamping friend Wendy's little girl. She was the one who inspired this little indian for Your Next Stamps. It's even named after her. I had to have her cause she's just too cute!

So Wendy...let Brooke know, she did a great job! Let Nathan know, I'm still working on his little inspiration. I'll be sure to post it soon!
My little indians are fighting over takes a shower first before bed...So this Chief has to go! Good Night all!

There was 3 little witches...

...and they all live in a little town in Florida. I wish I looked this good, LOL!! But I guess if I am referring to myself as a witch I have to magic to do so!! I told my girls we were these three witches and they both wanted to be the one with the purple hair! I AM SO in trouble when the teenage years arrive. Start praying for me now please!
This year is going by so fast. I can't believe we are already deciding what to wear for Halloween and before you know it the little goblins will be at the door for candy!

 This is WitchKeys from Saturated Canary digi's. I love them but then I love pretty much all of Krista's images! Let me know what you think!
It's World Cardmaking Day! Hope you get a chance to play today! I have a couple of errands to run but my table is all set for me to return to and play, can't wait!!!

Tilda Witch Paperbag

Hello Everyone! It’s officially October! Time to start figuring out what my girls will be for Halloween. At what age to do they stop wanting to go out for Halloween? I’m ready for it to be now, LOL!! Funny thing is they don’t even eat all the candy they collect. They count it, separate it into favorites, trade pieces with each other then that’s it…Just a couple of nibbles but nothing special.  Weird Kids I tell ya! Actually I did the same but I ate it too! My hips are still showing it, LOL!! So it’s a good thing and I am sure their dentist likes it too.

Have I ever told you that I have a stamping twin? She‘s my best bud ,Tracy. This weekend we got together for some play time, always fun!  I call her my twin because we could weeks at a time not seeing eachother  then we post either the same sketch with the same paper or we color the same. That happened this weekend with this Sitting Witch Tilda. Tracy pulled her colored image out and talked about creating something with a paperbag… I about fell off my chair and then showed her the pics I had saved in my blogger drafts. Then she almost fell off her chair laughing. Same image!! Except her little witch was colored in purple hair. I’m sure she will pop up soon but for now you can show her some love with her coffin and Vampire Edwin here.

So a couple of details, I got this idea from Claudia Rosa and her Christmas paper bag. Love her blog too! I love this Echo Park Halloween paper. It’s about 2 years old and this is pretty much the end of it. I think I used every bit of it and now I am sad….I do have one more card to share with this paper later on…She is colored in Copic markers and the handmade flowers are an MFT die. LOVE how quick they came together. I will be using a lot more of those dies for sure.  Love to hear what you think…
