omgosh! hello my lovely readers! I have been completely neglecting my blog this week! I have been cleaning and organizing and getting the old out to make ready for the new, and with getting some new CHA products, I've had the best time: opening boxes, touching and oogling my new pretty pretties. Even better, I still am awaiting several more boxes and will continue sorting and organizing for the next couple of weeks!

I do have a few new cards to share with you. Mostly just going through and re-evaluating what I should and shouldn't keep. I still have an overflowing box of goodies for cardmaking, so hopefully I will get that sorted next week and have time to create bunches!

First, Halloween is coming soon enough, and I adore creating holiday items. Here are two cards I made, the first card with Pink Paislee's new Hocus Pocus line, adding a clear card to the layers of paper ( sweetness papers) then  adding a hand cut star and cutting out the rubon after I added it to some cream paper. I added a shell button ( doesn't that look like a bone? *cackle cackle* ) and tied a bit of twine to the rubon as well. I inked the edges of the card and just love that creepy fly on the card to finish it just right.

From super creepy to oh so fun! Echo Park's Happy Halloween collection is available and I just got a package today with it. The designs are just delightful! I popdotted the spiderweb paper, handcut two stars, one in black, and also cut out the saying with scallop scissors. I added a tiny bit of a sticker border, held on with an orange brad, and added some star stickers as well. Some purple ribbon finishes this card off.

Since summer isn't over yet, I found some sweet tags I had laying around, and just had to use this big KI flower. I found one of the chipboard flowers to match, added in some Echo Park Life is Good papers then added my AC sticker letters overtop. I finished with a Hero Arts stamp greeting and a tiny bit of Scribble Scrabble paper scrap.

Finally, for today..a super bright fun card. I used a lot of mix and match here. Echo park light blue, and orange, and gcd studios blue/yellow paper. I had the tags I hand dyed ages ago, and added a cloud and chipboards from BB. More of those fun blue Amer Crafts sticker letters and a lightly stamped Hero Arts greeting finish this fun card off.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!!
