Hallowe'en is Coming!

Here they are!  Halloween cards for the three youngest grandchildren.  It won't be long before they believe they are too cool to enjoy Grandma's cards.

This is a digital image from Little Dog Designs.  I colored the image with Copics and used my bubble punch to punch holes in the gingham paper which was layered over purple cardstock.  I added glitter to the bubbles and on the critters' hats.  We girls love our bling!!

This is a CASE of Jane's card using her Jane's Doodles digital image!  That puppy doesn't look so sure he wants to be involved with Halloween at all!  I colored the image with Copics, added a webby ribbon and some stamped stitching.   I love the spider hanging down; just the perfect touch!

This is a Penny Black stamp from a few years ago that I usually stamp in black ink on white cardstock.  Today I decided to stamp the image with VersaMark and emboss with white.  I like it!!  Added some rhinestones that were sent to me from the Netherlands by Linda!  Even though this card is for a boy, I had to add the spidery bow!

We finally have the trim on the house painted!  Gave up on the do-it-yourself plan and hired pros!!  It was done in one day and looks great!

Today I am booking flights to Milwaukee for Christmas!  We will gather at my son and his wife's new home that we helped paint last August!  Scott and Sara have announced they are expecting my fifth grandchild!  Such happy news!! 

The trees are in full color this week and the sun is shining on God's tapestry!  Perfect weather, no need for air conditioning or heat!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
