2 Cards Today and Exciting News

Happy Friday Everyone!!! I can't believe another week is gone and school starts here on Monday. I finally got all my shopping done and they are all ready for Monday. I wanted to let you guys know.....that I was picked for Hanna Stamps guest designer spot for October and November. I am sooo excited and so happy to be given this opportunity WOOHOO!!! Thanks everyone for all your support during this 3 week competition.



Well today I was up earlier than normal, I had to babysit, the upside is that I actually got two cards done today. My first one I decided to do a Halloween card. I just love these new stamps from The Greeting Farm. I couldn't wait to play with them. I also added the last year's My Favorite Things Halloween set, the haunted house and the sentiment. Hope you like this everyone....


My next card I made for the Limited Supply Challenge LSC234 over at SCS. The challenge today was to make a boy/man card. We were not allowed to use ribbon...I invaded my husband's tool box and found these washers I thought would look cute on some wire. I had this Cosmo Cricket Paper I just love...So this for sure was a fun one to make....Thanks for taking a peak today and visiting me...Have a great FRIDAY!!!
