Happy Halloween

A few days early but I wanted to make sure I wished everyone a Happy Halloween.  Time sure has been flying by.  This week is really busy with preparing for a doll show Saturday in Kissimmee and an OWH card making event on Friday.  Squeeze in a doctor's appointment somewhere in there. 

Here's a few cards I made for this Halloween:

Thanks to my cricut for some great images.  They are from the Paper Doll cartridge.  My favorite is the cat.  I just had to add some googly eyes to him.  Happy Halloween everyone!

Card Making with the Gals

Had a wonderful time making cards with the gals here Thursday (10/17)  evening .  We managed to make about 100 cards.   It was nice to just gab and create.   They have all been sent off to Operation Write Home so we are done with Christmas cards for them.  Although it's not too late to send them Any Hero mail for Christmas.  Seems like the holidays are creeping up too fast.    Here are some of the cards we finished:



So now it's time to work on the Craft Fair until next month.  Thanks for stopping by.

Our Daily Bread Designs October Challenge

The Our Daily Bread Designs October Challenge for Operation Write Home is to make a card featuring a sentiment.  If 50 crafters post their card, ODBD will pay shipping for two boxes of cards to go to deployed heroes.  That's a huge help! 

This sentiment is one of my favorites from My Favorite Things.  I have to include this one in the challenge. 
Thanks for stopping by!  If you're a card maker, join the fun at Operation Write Home.

World Card Making Day OWH Blog Hop

I'm so glad to be participating in the World Card Making Day Operation Write Home Blog Hop.  Wow!  Is that a mouthful!  The challenge for this hop is to make a Thank You card using any of the Operation Write Home sketches.  There are so many that it is hard to choose one.  I usually pick some paper or an image and let it speak to me.  I knew I wanted to use one of the images I had colored with my copic markers.  Copics are something new for me.  I finally settled on sketch number 126.
The image I used is from My Favorite Things, called Indian Girl.  I think she's so sweet and makes me feel thankful this time of year.  The paper is from Crate Paper and the ribbon is grosgrain from my stash.   Hope you like the results.
Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you enjoy the blog hop today.  There are lots more blogs to visit.  Leave me a comment and tell me what you think.  And now you can return to WCMDOWH by clicking HERE.
