I made this scary Halloween Graveyard Scene for the Bitten by the Bug 2 Challenge featuring Halloween! I used the Oct. 31st and Happy Hauntings Cartridges.  I masked the moon and sponged the sky.  The fence and grass are MS punches. The moon with the bats is a stamp I got at Michael's for a dollar.  Happy Halloween!!! I entered this in several challenges: 613 Avenue Create, Craftin Desert Diva's, Love Rubber Stamps and  That Craft Place.

Today I made this wonderful autumn card with a fabulous image from Bugaboo call Jar - Autumn. I used my favorite ribbon for the fall made from burlap. I love the texture it gives to a card.  I colored the image with copic markers. This card is for the Creative Knockouts Challenge.

This is Breast Cancer awareness month so I thought I would make this card for everyone who is battling or is a survivor or has lost someone they love to this horrible cancer.  My mother in law is a survivor.   Thank God she found it in a very early stage.  I made the rose with Rock Star and the ribbon with Autumn Celebrations.  This is for the Bitten by the Bug 2 Challenge.

Today I made a fall card for Thanksgiving.  This card is for the Bitten by the Bug 2 Challenge. I used Stamping/Estampage Cartridge for the maple leaves.  I cut them in white then sponged on the various colors, crinkled them and added veins with my embossing tool.  I used a sparkle gel pen to highlight the veins. Cut Grateful from Autumn Celebrations. Added the embellishments of fiber green ribbon, cheese cloth, sprayed the background with Terra Cotta Walnut Ink (by Tsukineko), button with gold cord and gold pearls. Hope you like it!!
