It's almost Halloween!

Hello friends!!!
I am getting so excited-Halloween is almost here! I got busy the other night and whipped up some cards and a project. And my decorations are up, Bryan has a costume but Jack does not. We plan on hitting the store soon--he is so indecisive! It drives me insane. Bryan had his costume picked out and we were out the door in 15 minutes. Jack will take at least an hour at all the stores we go to-- If we make it to the stores.....

Jack is really sick right now. I think he has the flu. They don't test anymore so we can't be certain but we are treating it like the flu. He hasn't been feeling well for a week now. We went in for a well visit last week and of course, now he is the opposite of well.
I am right on top of it, keeping him comfortable. I am hoping to see the light at the end of the tunnel anytime now.....but who knows how long it could last...sigh.

Anyway.....
Here is a sweet little banner I made. I cut out some triangles and covered them with Prima patterned paper. Then, glued down some Frillies, punched out circles and placed them over the flowers. I added the letters and some fun crystal bats around them. I took some centers and adhered them to black cardstock, cut around them and hung them froom the bottom of the penants with wired swirls. I placed black gems along the top with punched out scalloped borders. I tied them together with sparkly ribbon and touile. This looks way cuter in person! But I hope you like it anyway!

I can not lie-this is a card I made last year...lol. But it's really cute and super easy to make. I layered patterned paper piece over the card base. Tied some touile around it and added gems along the paper border. I punched out some circles, stamped a green Madeira image in the center and finished it off with a little bat die cut. Then stamped the sentiment in the lower corner.



And this is a pocket card I made from Prima diecut paper. I used a huge punch for the circle and placed a crystal witch in the center. Then I tied a ribbon around the card, attached a little tag with a small saftey pin and sprayed the whole card with Glacier Glimmer Mist.


That's all for now. I may get some more projects done as Jack rests and if I do-I promise to share! Hope everyone is safe and healthy........and up to no good! haha!

Be back soon! xoxxo CAri
