Ghouls just want to have Fun!


Today I'm sharing this card I made with Monster Bash Boys & Girls from KaDoodle Bug Designs. They are having a 75% OFF SALE this weekend. Be sure to stop by and stock up on their cute files! I decided to make them Halloween monsters. The pumpkins and spiders are from Martha Stewart punches. I added some google eyes, ribbon and a sentiment and it was complete. Hope you have a fun and safe Labor Day weekend!!

With Sympathy



This weeks challenge at Peachy Keen is a sympathy card. I used  KaDoodle Bug Designs Heaven's Little Angel pattern. I did try to keep it clean and simple, which is very hard for me. I embossed the kraft cardstock with The Paper Studio Script embossing folder.  I stamped the face from PKS PK*540 Funshine Faces.

Hope you have a great day!

Wanted to quickly share my project I made for KaDoodle Bug Designs. This pattern Poodle Star was another freebie from KBD about 2 weeks ago.

Sweet Treats


Here's a quick tag I made for the KaDoodle Bug Designs challenge this week which is polka dots and stripes. Winner gets a free pattern of their choice. You must use a KBD image on your entry. I also wanted to make something for the 2nd challenge at the Peachy Keen Connection. The challenge was to use an office supply. I choose to add staples to my tag. I used the staples to attach my ribbon and banners to the tag.  The owl is from Spooky Hoots at KBD and the cute little candy corn is KBD creepy treats.

I promise this will be my last Halloween item for a few weeks. Can you tell I like Halloween??

Back To School Linky Party!!!


This is the beginning of the second week of the "Back To School" linky party!!

ANY type of project as long as it has to do with school. You could use items such as apples, crayons, rulers, bus, teacher, kids, lunchboxes, altered notebook etc

Here's some inspiration ...


Tara @ Craftin Desert Divas

I made this card for my twins 1st grade teacher. Madison & McKenzie are both in the same class and really enjoyed their first week back to school. I thought it would be nice to send in this card to let her know how much they enjoyed being in her classroom.

I used two patterns when making this apple shaped card. Both were freebies!!!
The apple shaped card was a freebie on KaDoodle Bug Designs a couple of weeks ago. The worm is from Too Cute by Jessica and is still a freebie. I posted about it yesterday.

Peachy Keen had a release party a couple of days ago. They are also hosting a back to school challenge on the Peachy Connection so I will be entering this card. For the apple I used The Moodies stamp. The mouth on the worm is from The Cornies. I finished the card with some white doodling, button and twine.


If you make the Top 3 you will also be invited to be a guest designer on an upcoming linky party!!

Will Spook For Treats


I love Halloween!! When I saw this Spooky Hoots pattern at KaDoodle Bug Designs, I knew I couldn't wait until October to make it. I also wanted to enter in the Peachy Keen challenge this week which is a sketch, so this is my take on the sketch. I used a variety of papers from K&Co, Martha Stewart and MME Mischievous. I inked all the edges in Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink. The leaves are from a Martha Stewart punch. The owls face is from PKS Large Critter set and leaves faces are from the Cornies.

You are my shining star!!


I just love this new pattern You're a Star by KaDoodle Bug Designs. I thought this TV shaped card was fun and what little girl would not like to get this super fun card. I used PK640 Princess face assortment to stamp the face.  The sentiment is from Cardz TV  "It's All About You". Don't forget this week at KaDoodle Bug Designs is anything goes challenge. You must include a KBD pattern. Winner gets a pattern of their choice.

I decided to recycle a veggie can and make my girls teacher a gift. I thought a pencil holder for her desk would be the perfect thing. It was really quick and simple. I  took an empty can, gently peeled off the label so I could use it as a template. I cut out my decorative paper and glued it down. Added an owl from KaDoodle Bug Designs Artistic Owls, raffia, button and pencils. It was that simple.
