HERE. Leave it to Stella to say something sarcastic!!!! Hehehe!!! I used my Copic markers on the image and some scrap designer paper for a fun Halloween card. The little black cat is a punch that I've used on a lot of my spooky cards. The sketch is fabulous and our sponsor is fun, so I sure hope you can join us at Seems a Little Sketchy.

This blog hop is for Clear Dollar Stamps. You should have arrived here from Lori's blog. If not, please start at the beginning at the CDS Blog. Our theme this month is "Trick or Treat." Because I'm dieting, my mind was 100% on the treat part of this theme!!! Why is it, when you're dieting are you hungry all the time and think about food non-stop?!! Anyway, I had to print up one of my favorite digis, Yummy Cupcake. I actually printed it up twice, and I actually cut out one cupcake, sponged the edges, and popped it up. I also used glossy accents on the strawberry. And don't you simply love the sentiment?!! I know I do.
For your last stop on our hop, scoot on over to Vickie's blog. I hope you've been leaving comments along the way too. We will randomly choose a winner of a $25 gift certificate to the CDS store for digital stamps from all the blog comments. So comment, I don't want you to miss out.

This card is for our month long challenge over at the Crafter's Cafe Challenge Blog - a Halloween theme with distressing. Our sponsor is Limited Runs Digital Stamps. And this is a fun image from Limited Runs called Pumpkin Boy. I thought he was adorable. A simple card, with sponging and distressing of the image edges. How fun, since I was able to use some designer paper scraps too. Hope you can join us this month for a fun and not so spooky challenge at the Crafter's Cafe Challenge Blog.
Don't forget about our Rubber Stamp Release and Blog Hop this weekend. I can't wait to show you the new stamps, but I can't right now, unless.......no, I can't ask you to send chocolate or a Starbucks latte, that would be bribery. So we are both going to have to wait for Saturday, when I can eat my own chocolate and go get my own latte (mmmmmm, pumpkin spice!!).
Digi Stamp Boutique. Be sure and check out her shop, it's filled with so much adorableness (is that even a word?)! The prize she is offering our winner this week is 6 FREE digis!!!
Funtime Dan collection. He is such a cutie, playing football with his friends. Of course I had to "dress" him in my team's colors, black and gold. I even found a scrap of Steelers paper to use. A little bit of twine and a football brad and this card is complete. Now let's see your creations using our latest sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

Today is a new challenge at Seems a Little Sketchy. Check out the new sketch we have for you to try out...it's great!!! And our sponsor this week is Squigglefly. Be sure to check 'em out, what fun images they have!!
Giddy. Isn't he hilarious?!!! Don't ask me why I decided to go purple with him, my least favorite color. But I am thrilled with how he turned out!!! Silly and spooky all at the same time, that's why I turned it into a Halloween card too. Hope you can find some time to join us at Seems a Little Sketchy for this awesome sketch.

Now today I'm playing catch-up for not being home yesterday by being late posting my Outlawz CAS Challenge card. Our theme this week is fall leaves. I had seen this technique on Facebook so I decided to case it. I die cut the leaf and used the negative portion to put some paper peeking out from underneath. The designer paper and sentiment is from Gina K Designs, her Sun-kissed Autumn Stamp TV Kit. Be sure and join us at the Outlawz CAS Challenge for a fun fall project, clean and simple style.

It's been a busy week. Saturday I am going to an all day/night crop at our local scrapbook store. It's actually from 9am - midnight! I want to attempt to organize my pictures and match them up with papers, sketches, etc that I want to do. I might actually get some scrapping done this way!!! I'm currently playing along with the LOAD challenge (lay out a day) over at Let's Scrap. I'm keeping up with it, making two page layouts which then counts for two days. I think everyone is tired of seeing vacation pictures at the beach so I need to change it up a bit!! Believe me, I have plenty of pictures and supplies to do just that!

How wonderful to then know what colors to use!!!!! Sure hope you can join us for this fabulous sketch and your chance to win at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

There She Goes Clear Stamps called Holly Jolly. The first two cards I used the Holly Jolly die. The third card only uses a sentiment from this set, but I really love the font...so whimsical. I kept them clean and simple and in my favorite size, 4.25" square.
Doodle Pantry image and papers - Holly Stag and Holiday Joy Digi Paper. I have had this pre-colored image printed and cut out with a nestie for quite some time now so why not use it. And yes, I admit it, the papers have also been printed off and just sitting on my desk. Making the card took no time at all - exactly the reason I love using pre-colored digis!
So four holiday cards for World Card Making Day, not too shabby! Enjoy the rest of your long weekend. But now I'll be all messed up on what day it is!!
