Jack o Lantern Pillow Boxes

One more quickie before bedtime.. I made  quite a few of these simple jack o lantern  pillow boxes.  I stuffed them with Smarties candies and will give them out tomorrow  night to all my trick or treaters. Also, I will use them in the following Halloween challenges. 
Die Cutting Divas- I used a  pumpkin face die.
Pinspirational Challenges- Halloween photo inspiration
Wednesday's Inspiration- Halloween /Fall
Fab N Funky- Halloween

Leaf Wreath

Tonight I saw the  Mix It Up Challenge 19 at Sugar Pea Designs.  I used both the sketch and the photo inspiration.  Also,  Seize the  Birthday has a  Leaf Challenge.  I stamped Happy Birthday on the inside and forgot to get a picture of  it.  I will be sending this to Meg for her  Nov 3 birthday.

I started this card a couple weeks ago and never got around to finishing it.  I've had  way too much going on!  Finally I finished it tonight just in time for a   couple late  night challenges.  Simon Says Monday has an Autumn challenge.  Sugar Peach Designs has a Pumpkin Challenge as their Mix It Up # 18.  I used one of the Sugar Pea face stamps to  finish this bear.

Snowman Slider

Today I made this  cute Snowman Slider card for the  Sparkles Christmas Challenge Snowman Challenge.  His sparkly  glitter snow  doesn't  show up very well in this picture but it is there. Crafting From the Heart, Craft on Your Passion, Crafty Sentiments and Through the Craft Room Door all have Anything Goes Challenges.

Happy Halloween

I wanted to have plenty of time to play today but that didn't happen.  Atleast I did  find  time to make one more card before  calling it a day.  Lawnscaping Challenges has a Black and Purple Challenge.  I used  a real deep purple paper for the background.  But I'm not real sure why it looks  blue instead. in the picture.  Jo's Scrap Shack has an Anything Goes Challenge.


Today I wanted to cut a few more  Halloween cards out.  Most of the ones I mailed out were left over  from last year.  I  haven't had much time to make some this year.  This was a real  quick neat cut. Then I printed the inside with my silhouette and  colored it with my  markers.  I love  having neat things on the inside of the card too!
There are several Halloween Challenges this week;

In the Pink  has a Ribbons or Bows Challenge. Simon Says Wednesday also has a  Think Pink challenge.  Casual Friday has a "Fight Like A Girl' challenge.


Just   quickie before I start  cleaning again.  I've got the whole week to myself  so I'm really  hitting the cleaning hard at the start of the week so I can relax  the last half of it.  I'm sure I  won't get everything on my list done but I do hope to get a  good start on the  Holiday necessities.

I made this  quick card for a friend  who really  enjoys her coffee.  I used the sketch from City Crafter.  The theme came from CASologyand Addicted to CAS.  Crafty Sentiments and   Through the Craft Room Door both have Anything Goes Challenges this week.

Happy Halloween

Another Quickie before bed.  I don't  do a lot of one layer cards but sometimes its just what the mood calls for.  There are  two Spooky Challenges this week.  One is Casology and the other is Hiding in My Craft Room.   Crafty Sentiments has an Anything Goes Challenge as well.


I can't believe  it has been  almost a month since I posted anything.  Life has been very  busy and  does get in the way of play time occasionally.  Yesterday,   I  made this  multi layered  card from Paper Creators. Their  cards are mostly print and cut, but I lie the folds and most of the  images. 
Since I'm running so far behind on my Challenge list I am going to squeeze this in as many as I can.
