Happy Halloween!!

We don't really celebrate Halloween at our house anymore now that my son is too old to go trick-or-treating, but I joined a fun swap on SCS that had me making Halloween cards tonight! It was called a Grab Bag swap and how it works is each person makes up a card kit, with a theme of there choice and mails one kit out to each person in the group. We then have to make 1 card for 3 people in the group and mail it out to them! It's a fun way to see and play with some new papers and/or stamp sets you might not already have!

This month the Hostess selected a Halloween theme and here are the cards I made using the supplies she sent me:

It was great to spend some time in my stamp room tonight :) I really need to get down there more often and PLAY!!
Feel free to link me to any pictures of the fun Halloween things YOU are making these season! I would love to see them :)

Every so often I find the time and love to play along with various challenge blogs I have found online. Tonight I sat down and needed to make a card for my Secret Sister swap on SCS so I used the Mojo Monday sketch for inspiration!

Here is the sketch:

Good afternoon ladies!! I have finally found some free time to stamp.......and all I had to do was quit my job to find it! :) HAHA......yes, that is right.......I quit my job! Now I have plenty of time to stamp and try new things...........until I find a new job of course :)
