A friend of mine has a sister who's birthday falls on Halloween
and asked me to make her a card. For the shutters, I used
SU's Window Dressing with Versamark and clear embossing powder
with a little ribbon for the window curtains. The black cats are from Dollarama. The template for the little box comes from
Stampin' Up's Website (fry box).

One of my favorite blogs: Inking Idaho, I found the cutest little boxes and cards sets. Here is my version.
But you can find Becky's creations here:
Her blog is truly inspirational.

Here is a card I made for Mojo Monday's challenge using Basic Grey, Basic Black and that lovely new Urban Garden DP. For the center flower, I cut out the flower from the paper a couple of times to give it a 3-D effect.
I call this my oxymoron card as it is floral yet masculine.
Kind of a jumbo shrimp.
Thanks for looking!

This is a card that my friend Donna (who also happens to be one of my loyal members of my stampers Mother/Daughter Club) made this beautiful card for her DH who turned the big 5 0 a couple of weeks ago. Donna is an extremely talented cardmaker and I always love to see her creations. She always adds her own personal feminine touch which always turns out awesome.
There was another equally beautiful card for her daughter's Shauna's 10th birthday but unfortunately the pic did not turn out for that one.
Great job Donna and Happy Belated Birthday to both Simon and Shauna.

I saw a version of this card last Spring at our regional SU convention here in Montreal and it was one I just had to case.
I cannot remember the original creator of the card, it was posted on one of the sample card boards of which there were probably 50.
Well, I finally was able to get her to pose for me.
It was such a beautiful day and we took some pictures
to post on her very own blog that we created together,
but she is well on her way to the blogging world.
You can check her fun crafts here:

I submitted this card to SU's monthly contest for November. The selected card by SU will be shown in January's Stampin' Success issue with the theme being Fun with flurries. I did a very similar card a little while back but angled it a little differently. I mailed it off yesterday and keeping my fingers crossed.

Yesterday was my 100th workout and you guessed it, I got this
wonderful T-shirt to commemorate this great milestone.
Pictured with me is Karen, the most fun and cheerful trainer there is. The first time I met Karen, she was wearing a 'GRUMPY'
sweatshirt which I thought was pretty funny because she is anything but grumpy. By the way, this song is for you Karen.
