Happy Halloween!

I sure hope the weather is better for Trick-or-Treating in your neck of the woods then it is in the Northeast.  Brrrrr.  I’m glad I don’t have small children any more!

Since it is Halloween, I figured a Halloween project was a must!  My card and little pumpkin are sporting two of my very favorite ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

My fun spider web and pumpkin lantern were created on my Silhouette Cameo.  The fun sentiment is from Create with TLC.

The bow on my card is made with Black Netting which comes in a 1-1/2″ width, but I trimmed it down to about 3/4″ wide.  I tied a basic bow with my Bow-it-All V2.0 and added a Lime Button in the center.
My cute little pumpkin has a double-looped double-layer bow made on my Bow-it-All V2.0 with 5/8″ Black Delicate Stitched Satin.
Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Halloween!

PTT Challenge #187 – Anything Goes Theme

Hi there.  It’s time for another fun challenge over at the Party Time Tuesdays Challenge Blog.  This is weekly Anything Goes Challenge Blog and we’d love to have you come over and join the fun.

I spent the weekend fooling around creating some paper flowers.  I think I’m addicted!  I just love making paper, fabric and ribbon flowers.  Stay tuned for more in upcoming posts.  So, I’m still in Christmas Card mode, although I have not come up with the design for this years Garby Family Christmas Card.  I like to come up with a design I like and then mass product.  This one is not optimal for mailing with that fun dimensional flower, but I sure can hand it to someone!

So this card has a gorgeous double-looped bow made with 7/8″ Ruby Red Double-faced Satin from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I quickly created this gorgeous bow with my Bow-it-All V2.0 Tool.  Making bows is the fastest part of card making for me with that wonderful tool.
This card is featuring lots of yummy dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.  I used the Ankara Lace Border down each side of my center panel, the Lords and Commons Doily Die in the center and my flower was created with the Build-a-Flower 1 die.  The fun Merry Christmas sentiment is from JustRite Stampers.
This card has been entered in the following challenges:
I hope you’ll head over to the Party Time Tuesdays Challenge Blog and play along with our challenge this week.  We’d love to see what you are creating.
Thanks for stopping by!
