It's About Halloween And Perple

The Cuttlebug Challenge Blog Inspiration Wednesday #52 is to make a card that is Halloween or Fall Inspired. How about this? the papers are Basic Grey and the Image is from my fave Digital Image Designer Mo. from Mo's Digital Pencil. I used the Cuttlebug folder Swirls to emboss the background glitter paper and the Circle folder for the orange strip of paper. I covered the moon with Distress Stickles and added a few rhinestones and a couple of ribbons to finish this off. The layout is from My favorite Mojo Monday Blog. Julie always has the best Sketches. This is Sketch # 107. This card is for the VERY FIRST challenge over at Mo's Challenge Blog. Bella and Bronte's favorite color is Perple so the challenge is to use purple on your card. Run don't walk on over to the new Challenge Blog and check out all the new Design Team Members samples and pick up a Mo Image and join us. There is a way to get a free image to use if you don't have any yet but I'm pretty sure that if you see all the great images you too will become a fan.


Om Tues evenings every other week I have a technique class at my house. There are 4 ladies that show up never fail and this week I decided that we should decorate pumpkins. Paper mache pumpkins. This is Kathleen and Barbara working away. I put out Vogue and Vanity Fair magazines to find eyes and lips, Pattern paper, feather boa rhinestones, yarn and pipe cleaners for hair and other bits and pieces to create these girls. Kathleen's punkin, she made the eyelashes from boa feathers,and gave her spider earings.



Diana's girl, My what long eyelashes she has.



Barbara's girl and I just love the eyebrows and this is a great hairdo.







And this is mine (Kate Winslet eyes and lips) These are so much fun to make. You should give it a try.










Have a Great weekend everyone!
