Spooky Shaker Card

I have been wanting to make a shaker card and today assembled one for a few color challenges going on. For this challenges you have to use the colors orange, purple, black, green (or small amounts of green) and small amounts of white. Perfect for Halloween. To be honest, I had originally inked the white eyes, downloaded the photo and just before uploading it to my blog my seven year old daughter suggested googly eyes. "Great idea" I responded and she told me next time to check with her before I took the picture to make sure everything was right, lol. What can I say? She gets it from me.

The title is a freebie from My Scrap Chick and the witches hat was a freebie from Miss Kate Cuttables. I love those freebies. I purchased the ribbon from LoveBug Creations, the sequins from My Craft Spot and used black stickles on the hat. Yes, I need stamps to add to my cards. I just ordered a few but this is also why I am entering a few challenges. To build my supplies by adding stamp sets. This card seems fitting for the Cardz TV Challenge as I watched a video from one of her DT members to learn how to make the card. I'm sorry I can't remember which member as I watch so many. Much thanks for the how to.

Nuts About You Fall Card

Ok, so fall is almost gone in Alaska and winter is setting in. When I saw this cute little freebie squirrel on PPPR's blog hop this past weekend, I knew it would go perfect with the PPPR Freebie Friday Fall Tree. I just had to make this card for my husband's grandmother Ruthie, who is 92 years young. Thank you, Lisa, for all the great files and inspiration. I look forward to Friday's to see what you have for me. 

If you didn't pick up the Nuts About You squirrel during the blog hop, you can still purchase it.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I made this card to give to the hospital where I get my annual mammogram each year.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

Stand Behind The Ribbon

I first learned of breast cancer at the age of 12 when my mother was diagnosed with it. Within two years of being diagnosed, she had a double mastectomy. When I was 16 years old, my mother passed away at the age of 40. Since the age of 23, I have had yearly exams. I will do whatever it takes to fight it off so that my children don't grow up without a mother. I choose to get my mammograms during breast cancer awareness month every year.
