CASE Study & Waltzingmouse Challenges

Happy Halloween everyone. Hope you're enjoying your day!

I thought I would share a pic of a Jack Skellington pumpkin that Ian carved for Natasha (Tink).  We entered him into a competition in our local town but unfortunately he didn't win.  He's still a winner in our house though :o)

I've got two cards today, the first is for CASE Study challenge;

This is the first time I've joined in on this challenge, so I'm hoping I got the details right!  You have to case the inspiration card, in this case this is the card by the October Muse, Barbara Anders.

I used Amy Butler papers and Bazzill Bling cardstock, SU! ribbon, Martha Stewart border punch, Papertrey Ink 'Big & Bold Wishes' for the sentiment, Prima pearls and I made the flower.

I made my second card for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #21

This is the sketch..  I used lots of my favourite new things on this card! 
  • 'Compliments of the Season' stamps by Waltzingmouse for the label and the scrolls at the top of the note paper
  • Cosmo Cricket 'Mitten Weather' papers
  • Papertrey Ink 'Spiral Note Pad', 'Library Card' Stamp and 'Library Pocket Card Die'
  • Sizzix 'Flower 3d' in felt, aren't those flowers gorgeous in that vibrant purple?  I love them!

Enjoy the rest of your day/evening.  I will be back to share some more soon. 

Tomorrow is Tink's 11th birthday, I'm sure there will be a few tears (from me that is, where my little baby is growing up!!)
