This is a birthday card I made for Kathi, one of the fabulous gals in my hostess group! Kathi makes these wonderful huge cards out of file folders, so I thought I would give it a try! No stamping on this card, everything is paper pieced. The idea for the owl was from a card I saw in a magazine by Kim Hughes, love it! And it was super easy using my circle punches!! The "owl" paper is from We R, it is double sided, bright, and just lovely!! I used brown card stock for the tree, I just (yes Sandy I said "just"!) hand cut the branches. The leaves are die cut with a spellbinders leaf die, out of some green card stock. I found the file folders already printed in that beautiful blue! I really love how it turned out, hope you enjoy it too!

Here are a couple of fun Halloween creations that are quick and oh so fun to create! I found these little buckets at Target, 2 for a dollar! So cute filled with some candy and dressed up with the new "Glitter Goblins" stamp set from The Angel Company, I just love those bat wings!!
The clam shell card and blooming envelope I made using my nestabilities. For the image, I was inspired by a really great card I saw on Barb Lemone's blog awhile back. The background was all sponged using masking techniques, the wonderful cat is from "Happy Haunting" from The Angel Company. The sentiment is a gift with purchase stamp from the current catalog.
I hope you enjoy these projects and take a look at the other Angel bloggers who are participating in this challenge!!

Last Saturday was the second of four Christmas card classes I am teaching. It was really fun, a big thank you to all the wonderful ladies who were there!! These are 2 of the cards we made, all the paper is from Imaginisce, it is really beautiful and fun paper. The stamped images on these 2 cards are also from Imaginisce, I love that when you can match paper and stamps!! Sentiments are from Amuse. If you look closely at the ginger men you will see that 1 has a bite out of it! I thought it was kind of funny with the "bah humbug"! I hope that your day is wonderful, and thanks for stopping by!!

I will be teaching this class on October 11th, if you are interested please contact Scraps of Life! I will also be teaching the second set of cards in my ongoing Christmas Card Club, on that same day. Hope to see you there!
