Well here in Southern CA we finally had a break in the temps and hit the 80's this week a couple of days.  Love it!  Though there really isn't a true change in season with fall colors where we are, doesn't mean I don't want to make some "fall" cards.  This one is again using an image on line that I colored with sharpies.  I also decided to do a shaker card, which I haven't done in a long while.  I colored the silver sequins I had by Tree house studio with my sharpies and add them in.  I have had these shaker cards forever, so I have no idea where the card kit came from.  The one thing I would have done different here is put two layers of foam tape around my image to make the shaker part a bit deeper.  I used brown StazOn ink for the sentiment.  The sentiment is one of my favorite.  I have had it forever.  I love the the font.  It is made by Hero Arts.  It was a pretty simple card to make and I know just who will be receiving this one.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Halloween Fun

I was able to get some craft time in tonight.  I did something I have not done in a long while.

I used a digital image from the internet to create a card.  I think it turned out pretty cute.  Since my stamping/papercrafting stash has recently downsized again (long story).  I was proud to see I could still put together a pretty nice card with what I had on hand.  The sentiment I down loaded from the internet.  Please forgive me for not having the reference on hand.  But, if I find the site I will definitely add that in.  I usually do not make halloween cards, but now that I have 5 year old, well I see these quick easy cards will come in handy this season.  The black spiders are from a Studio G set from years back.  I stamped them on the top half of a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of Recollections creme cardstock.  I ran the orange Colorbok cardstock through my Big Shot with the Cuttle Bug dot folder.  I added some Recollections black and white Bakers's Twine in a bow.  The sentiment from the internet was cut out with a circle punch.  Simple and Easy.  My favorite type of card!  I see this as an easy card to give to a few family, friends, teachers, etc.  Thanks for taking a moment to look.
