Fred She Said-Halloween Rosey Shaker Card

It has been raining here in Georgia today with Tropical Store Norma coming through. I love rainy days. I put on a pot of Peach Mango Tea and sit in my craft room and listen and watch the rain. I don't get out of my PJ's....it is my excuse-it's raining and I am going nowhere and I am crafting!!! I hope it rains tomorrow!!!! lol
Let me introduce you to Halloween Rosey from the Fred She Said Collection. You can find her in the store here. Isn't she cute and she is a shaker card that I made from the plastic insert your "tacky tape" comes in. Talk about being frugal-I love that plastic and am so happy I found a use for it. This is a picture of the card with the envelope I created from the "priscillastyles" 6 x 6 envelope kit found here.
On the inside I decorated with more Rosey images. I inked the edges in purple. I used the Martha Stewart Spider Web PATP. The rhinestone pumpkins are from Mickey's. This is how my card fits in the envelope. I am actually using the back like the front because I just think it is so pretty with all the stitching, I want i to show! Thanks so much for stopping in. I am having so much fun making fall and Halloween Card. Tomorrow is the Fred She Said Blog Hop-so please stop by for more Seasonal card.

Fred She Said - Fall Flower Collection Aster

Greetings Bloggers! Today is the day to play with some Fred She Said Fall Flowers. This is the Aster from the Fall Flower Collection at the Fred She Said Store here. I just love this digital flower set. There is a Sunflower, Black Eyed Susan, Chrysanthemum, and this Aster. What a lovely set of cards you could make with those for a wonderful gift!Here you can see that I printed out the image 3 times. I cut one with the oval spellbinders then layered one whole cut floral on top. I then cut out the biggest flower and popped that as well for dimension. My favorite embellishment was used on the flowers....."stickles"!!! lolI used the cuttlebug thin stripped embossing folder for the sides and placed some pearls in the center of the flowers.

This is a picture of the card and envelope together that I made. This was such a fun card to make. I loved the blue and white together. This is about as close to Clean and Simple that I have come to a card in a long time. Hope you have enjoyed viewing this creation!Challenges Entered

MMSC70- Chandelier Goes Spooky!

Greetings Bloggers and welcome to another week of the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. Well, I know you have seen "priscillastyles" chandelier image before created by some of the most talented card crafters on the internet, but have you ever seen it spooked out like this...lol Isn't this just too darn cute! I invite you to check out this Chandelier Image here and get cracking on some Halloween cards. This image is so versatile you can use it year round!


Wow, only a few more days before we set sail on the Midnight Madness On the High Seas Cruise. It's sure going to be fun creating projects with friends and meeting in person some of the people I have been chatting with on the phone and internet for the last year!!!

I have been busily preparing kits for the projects we are going to do on the trip. Besides all the activities on the boat and the shore excursions, we are going to be busy!!! I might have to show the girls how to do the Cupid Shuffle and the Mississippi Slide while we are at it at the deck parties..lol




As you can see by this picture that I added some spiders to this "priscillastyles" image. I knew those $1 stamps I get a JoAnn's and Micheal's would come in handy!!! This was from last years $1 collection. It also had the matching long spider. The web corners were from a different set. I also had a swirl leave $1 set that I stamped the background pieces.
I got the chipboard black glitter spider and bat pieces at Micheal's. There was a package of varying sizes and shapes for $99

I added my own rhinestone eyes. The "Boo" sentiment was also at Micheal's for $1. And one last thing, the rhinestones came from the Micheal's $1 bins!!!
Here is the Card and Envelope together! I hope you enjoyed viewing my spooky Halloween Card. I invite you to take a look at some great digi's at the "priscillastyles" Store! Thanks for stopping by.

Emma In Leaves in Honor of September 1st


Greetings bloggers happy September 1st! You know that summer is coming to and end and the leaves will soon be changing. In honor of the beautiful season of fall, I have created this lovely card with Emma In Leaves from the Fred She Said Store.
Emma is a pre-colored image that I used on this creation along with a Martha Stewart punch around the page punch. I used the spellbinders leaves die cuts for the background and another punch I have for the leaves which were all individually distressed inked with Rangers inks to make them look like maple leaves.
The picture above is actually a picture of the card and coordinating envelope!
This was something that I totally enjoyed putting together as fall is my favorite time of year. Emma symbolizes the joy I used to feel in the fall when playing in the leaves as a child. It is the most beautiful time of the year if you are lucky enough to live in a place where the leave change color. In my home in Connecticut I got to experience it every year. Here in Georgia we are not lucky enough to see the beauty unless we go North! Thanks for stopping by today.
