October Arting

What a great time of year!  Cold, crisp mornings followed by blue skies and bright, sunny afternoons.  Crispy, crunchy leaves crackling as you walk down the street.  Love it!

My artsy shares for today include an autumnal ATC and a spooky Halloween  bookmark.  The ATC  is for a color palette challenge.

Here's the palette:

And now for my Halloween bookmark.  I love wandering through my Halloween stamp stash.  I find things I forgot I had.

Happy October and thanks for stopping by!

Eek! A Spider!

Yowza - there are a LOT of spidewebs in my yard!  I hope the neighbors aren't peeking out their windows as I crazily windmill my arms as I walk around my yard in hopes of removing spiderwebs in my path before I walk through them and they hit my face. Yuk!  Have done that.  Don't like it.

I digress.  Presenting to you a fun, spidery, webby ATC in the spirit of Halloween (color-wise anyway).  Hope you like it!

Love's Affect ATC

Another ATC today!  This one was made for a 'bookpage heart' ATC swap. 

Happy Saturday and happy creating!

Baby Boy Congrats Card

Awwww...there have been a lot of new babies and expectant moms at my work.  (I guess that's to be expected when you're a preschool teacher!)  I made this card to have on hand for the next one.  :)

I'm entering this in the MFT Stamps sketch challenge #404.  I used some MFT oldies, but goodies for this.

Thanks for stopping by!

The Friendly Spider ATC

Wellll...maybe not SO friendly??  I made this for an ATC swap themed "ATC with a napkin on it". 

As luck would have it, I recently participated in a napkin exchange.  I received a beautiful black napkin with metallic gold medallions on it.  I cut one of them out for the background of my ATC - it reminded me of an elegant spiderweb.

The whole spider thing also came about because I have been walking into/through spiderwebs SO OFTEN lately.  Drives me nuts!  Strange how inspiration strikes, isn't it?

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  How do you feel about spiders?

You Put a Spell On Me Tag

I've got these lyrics stuck in my head now.  I noticed that the challenge over on the Stampotique Designers Challenge blog is "monsters".  Well, I love me some monsters!  I hadn't taken Cecil out for spin for a looonnnggg time so he is the creepy dude chosen for my tag today.

The background was made with Dylusions ink spray and Color Burst watercolor powder.  I stamped 'heads' over that.

Oh, I love it!  I'm getting in the mood for Halloween!  And now I can officially say, "Happy Fall!".

Thanks for stopping by today.  :)

Too early for Christmas?

I think interactive cards are so much fun and I pulled out the Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel again to make a card for the "something old, something new" challenge at Lawn Fawnatics.

My "something new" is the Reveal Wheel Holiday Sentiments.

My "something old" is the Tobaggan Together stamp set and the Stitched Mountain Border.

Thanks for stopping by!
