SSS& color

Good morning bloggers it sure is a chilly one here in NS we are expecting a northeaster coming up from the eastern seaboard of the USA. Just hope we'll get mostly rain rather than snow too early for that white stuff yet. I've been doing a little more stamping and did this card for the challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and Show this week which is to use one color. Here's my card done in brown tones.The stamp is Penny Black -snow dust which I stamped and embossed on Graphic45 PP.I did faux stitching around the card added a scalloped edge, some punched snowflakes and sentiment.The ribbon trim I purchased at one of my favorite stores 5-$1.00 ones never knows what they will find there.

Halloween Candle

Good morning bloggers just wanted to share another Halloween project that I did recently, also made one for a friend and gave it to her this week over a nice cup of coffee.The jar is a recycled candle jar that I kept knowing that it would come in handy for something . I used my spellbinders edge abilities to create the pattern in the MME DP so that the light shines through. The skeleton and spider I picked up at the $store.Ribbon added from my stash as well as the Halloween sticker. I use a flameless tea lite so that the lid can stay on .

Happy Halloween.

Halloween Decor

Well I can't believe it's over a month since I posted .I'v been busy trying to get some painting done and I gave my kitchen a facelift with paint,new countertop ,hardware,sink and faucets. Very happy with how it turned out . So today I wanted to share with you a framed Halloween scene I did for my grandkids .They were so happy to receive it . Most of the images are done with TH dies and TH embossing folders. The witch and cat were stamped and cut out .The grass ,fence and witch I did on the Cricut. Added some cotton balls for the smoke and went over the BG with TH picket fence DS to give it a scary look . I wrapped TH Halloween tissue tape around the edge of the frame.Hope you like .
