Halloween Duo

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).

The week long theme at Splitcoast is Pink.

Mojo Monday #57 or Oxymoron Card

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!

Donna's Card for her DH

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.

KWerner Color Inspiration #25

Here is a card I made for Karen's Color Inspiration using
bashful blue, certainly celery, so saffron and ruby red. For the sketch, I applied her Simple Flower card sample and used it
for this challenge.

Glittery Barocque Pumpkins

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.

My beautiful daughter...

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.

CPS #85

For this challenge, I used Live Your Dream SS which is always fun - the flowers always turn out perfectly when you use markers or blender pens.

January Skies (in October)

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.

This is a card for Wednesday's sketch challenge with Splitcoast. I used that cute little stamp set 'Pocket Silhouettes' with Bella Rose DP. and a few little embellishments.

100 Workouts at Curves

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.
