It's that time of the year... Halloween cards

The last few years I have been making halloween cards for my nieces and nephews and for my friend's children or grandchildren.  Here are 7 of them still have more to make.

Birthday card no. 1

Sorry about the pictures not being so great. Colored the image using my copic makers, used stickles on the stars and the candles.  I cut some of the stars out of the paper, glued them to card stock, stickled them, and popped dotted them to the card.  I used the negative of a die cut to create a frame in the inside of the card, and used a $1.00 stamp from Michael's on the inside of the card.

My sister's birthday gift

Monday, August 30 was my sister, Lizzy's birthday.  Ten days up to her birthday I was sending her happy mail (although we work together - I thought it would be fun to get happy mail).  She enjoyed the envelopes (the envelopes were filled with paper piecings for her scrapbook pages, colored images and sentiments for card making).  On her birthday I delievered to her this box which was filled with 20 handmade birthday cards, a book of stamps, a gift certificate to the local scrapbook store.  She has been telling me that she wants to start sending her friends birthday cards. Being a working mom of a very active 12 year old daughter she does not have the time to make the cards, so I made them for her to send to at least 20 of her family and friends.  She thought it was a perfect gift. So come back for the next 20 days and I will display a card a day.
