So Onto my project...

I know the colors are more of a Halloween color scheme but I wanted to try add a twist on it :)

So for this card I wanted to make it simple. 
I used a premade card stock in yellow
Then I piece of fall leaf patterned paper that I rec'd in a paper swap 
Then I used a corner chomper and cut the corners of the white card stock
Stamped it with the tree and added the sentiment that is from K Andrew Designs
I also added some Tim Holtz distressing ink to it and some liquid pearl.

Happy Tuesday All!! So for my DT Post over at Getting Cricky we are going with a Halloween theme.
This will be my last post on the Getting Cricky site since Kristal has decided to close her doors to her stamp line and allow herself more time with her teaching and her two young boys. I wish her all the best that life has to offer and I thank her for the great opportunity that I have had to grow with paper crafting and I met some very AWESOME ladies throughout my terms with her! 

I will also be entering my project into the following challenges: 

Cute Card Thursday- Use Glitter (my haunted out windows, and on my bears costume) 
Pause Dream Enjoy - Night Project 

So for this project I used the Teddy Bear Parade Cart and cut him out at 3"
I glittered up his leaves, stem and treat bag. I also Glittered up the shutters on the haunted house windows :)
The paper is from : DCWV The Midnight Spell Matstack
Then i distressed the edges of the white cardstock to give it a little extra spooky touch and
I stamped it with K Andrew Designs Fall-O-Ween set

Halloween Nail Polish

Happy Tuesday all!!! The week is almost halfway over and I have been working hard on getting some gifts created for Halloween for the office. Since I am a HUGE fan of doing my own nails I decided to do a themed project for nails :)

I will be entering this project in
Party Time Tuesdays - PTT #89 Anything But a Card

So for this I got the dimensions for a 1 nail polish holder off of Pinterest (yes i know i'm so addicted to pinterest lol)
And then I just adjusted it for my double colors.
I Then Inked the edges with a little black and stamped it with my K Andrew Designs Set Fall-O-Ween 
I added some black and orange twine to it to top it of and it was super simple and I think it super cute :)
