Halloween Cards!!!

Hi and So glad you could come by to visit. It's Halloween, The day when all the Ghost, Gobblins and Ghouls come out to play and who knows what else will be lurking around. 
It's raining here today in Indiana and going to have some severe weather later. Because of the weather they have changed the Trick or Treating to Saturday. Glad they decided to change it. Saturday we are suppose to get extremely cold weather. Hate when all the kids have to cover up their costumes with big heavy coats. 

I have been so busy that I had decided not to make my Grand Children Halloween Cards, until my Grand Daughter Scarlett seen a Halloween Stamp Set that I have and told me that's what she wanted on her Card. 

Did I have the heart to tell her that I wasn't making them cards this year. Ahh I don't think so, In their eyes I'm the best Grandma ever. I could never let them think other wise. Right!

For Walker's Card I knew I had to put a Cat on it. He Loves Cat's and he loves my Black Cat Nelson. So his card was pretty simple. Just laid a circle on white card stock. Sponged S.U. Going Grey Ink to look like clouds. Stamped a black cat. Wish I had embossed it. Oh well. and I made a fence using the Mini Monsters Cartridge and embossed it with a wood grain folder. 

For Scarlett's Card, I used the Stamp Set that she wanted. I got it at Hobby Lobby. Made by Hobby Lobby.  
Punched out a circle and laid it on top of the Cardstock and sponged inside the circle with Summer Sun and more mustard Inks. Also used Eggplant Envy, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Black and Close to Cocoa Inks. Wanted to girly it up a little so I added a Scallop Border and added some google eyes for fun.

So there is my quick Cards that I made. Hope you have a Spook-tackular Day and come visit me again.   Cindy

Where's Fall???

Freezing! Freezing! Freezing! Fall is my favorite time of the year and I have waited a whole year to enjoy it again. Well where is it??? I would Love to know. It's going to be 30 degrees tonight and frost and a hard freeze tomorrow night and flurries.  I don't care for the cold weather of Winter and that's exactly what it feels like. I can't take it!  I just might do something drastic like scream. Oh, It's going to be a long Winter. Blah!!!!

To get my mind off of the ridiculously Cold weather. Let me share a Card with you that I made.


Just looking at this Card. It makes me feel a little warmer.  Not really, But I'm going to tell myself that anyway.
I made this Card using a Stamp Set from Stampin Up called Greenhouse Garden. The Happy Birthday stamp is from the S.U. Set called Well Scripted.
The white Cardstock was cut out using the Top Note Die and I embossed it with the Victoria Embossing Folder. 
I used Lavender Lace Ink on the flowers and added Dazzling Diamond Glitter to them. 

So glad you took the time to visit. Would love for you to come back. Stay warm my Crafty Friends. I think it's time for me to go get a hot cup of cocoa.    Bye, Cindy

Walker turns 8 and Winner of Blog Hop!

Hey, So glad that you could stop by , Hope you all are doing well.  My Grandson Walker turned Eight years old the other day. His Party was held yesterday and he had an Army Themed Birthday Party. He loves anything Military and has been saying that he was going to join since he was about 3 years old. A few years ago he told me again that he was going to be in the Army when he gets big. I told him that I really didn't want him to. He said Mamaw you don't understand. The Army saves the People,Trees and the Kitty's. I had to laugh. It was so Cute.
The whole front yard was made into (Boot Camp). Where all of the kids had to go through all kinds of opsticles. We also made Dog Tags for everyone to wear. They had a really good time. A real Army Soldier came to see him to. He Loved It. 

Thought I would share his Card that I made him. I made it using the Boys will be Boys Cartridge.



 I also wanted to share a picture of the Camouflaged Blanket that I Crocheted him. This was my first time making a Blanket. It's a Twin size.  I think it turned out pretty well for my first one. He Loves It!!!
