FCCB Home Decor #183

Good morning fellow crafters!!  I hope you've had a great weekend!!  I spent mine at SimpLee Memories Hobby Retreat House with Ginger from My Sister's Scrapper!!!  It was amazing!!  She taught an amazing Christmas mini album there!!  Make sure you check out the retreat was heaven out there!! 

So today's challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge was to create a Home D├ęcor project.  So this is what I came up with!!  I used the Tags Bags Boxes & More, and Mother's Day Bouquet cartridges.  Wrapped some spooky spider web around the bottles, added some spiders, and of course glitter and VOILA!!  A fun spooky Halloween Bottle!!

Halloween Frame Card

Well...Halloween is just around the corner!!  The kids are getting all pumped up to dress up a(me included) and go trick or treating, the haunted house and all the other fun things!!!  Still haven't decided on costumes but I swear, we always wait until the last possible minute and get creative!!

So, for todays card I created for two challenges:

My Craft Spot - #115 3D Halloween
Paper Playtime - #21 Ribbons & Buttons

I found this super cute tutorial on how to make the frame part of the card and knew that would be the perfect base!!  I love it and admit I've already made several different designs!!  Thinking this might be my Christmas card base as well...we shall see!!  Okay, getting side tracked!!  You can find the tutorial (((HERE))) by Dawn's Stamping Thoughts!!  LOVE her tutorials!!  I swear I watched every single on the other day!!  haha

And of course my favorite thing about this card (besides the shadow box) is the spooky spiders web I draped around it!!  Hope you enjoy!!  Thanks for stopping by!!

Breast Cancer Awareness!!!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month!!  Make sure you do your self exams and make your appointment for a mammogram!!  I've had a couple friends who I'm happy to say are breast cancer survivors...unfortunately not everyone is so lucky.  So please make sure you have your exams done!!

This card was created for the challenge over at CardzTV...#37 Breast Cancer Awareness.  If you haven't checked out Mary's blog you need to head on over!!  She is absolutely amazing and the stamps (CHECK THEM HERE) she designs are as well!!  You will find a ton of inspiration on her blog, I always do!  !

I created the boot using the witches boot image on the Happy Hauntings Cartridge (you can see my Halloween card here).  I just snipped the curly toe part off so make a Victorian boot.  Same with my Halloween card, I ran the pink and white cardstock in my Cuttlebug to give it some dimension.  A little faux stitching around the ovals edges and voila! a great card to send to a girlfriend!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
