Ok enough chit chat!! I have a couple Halloween Shares for ya!! First up is a version of the Halloween card I sent.. I actually sent a few this year, different styles.. I had PLANS for them to be the same but then this came to my head so I had to start over and make these up! ;) (yes I do this sometimes!! put me behind but thats ok!!)

Big Share Today!


Happy HUMP DAY! :) It cracks me up when I hear this.. why is it just getting so popular to say when we have had Wednesdays since the beginning of time! I think we have anyway.. I wasnt here then.. much to the SHOCK of my kiddos!!  HA HA!! ANYWAY.. Happy Wednesday.. hope your week is going well! I have been taking lots of CREATIVE time .. I need to focus on Halloween treats, but sometimes.. I see something and I get side tracked.. like todays share! :) I am taking the Copics Marker Class For Card Makers! - LOVE!! Learned some FUN tricks!!  Today Jennifer shared a video on using your copics to color your dies so they are multi colored and not just one color like when cut with CS.. oh my.. I am in LOVE!! This took me over an hour to do.. BECAUSE I didnt like my butterflies, so I recut them.. then hand cut just the butterflies, and put them right on top of the orig. and I LOVE how it turned out.. this will have to be hand delivered since I dont want to squish them in the mail!! HA HA!

I LOVE the Memory Box Dies.. so much DETAIL.. I have only 4.. so you know what this means.. YEP I need MORE!! :) can I just blame the class?!! 

I WISH You could see the sparkle .. I used my copics, and spicas   on this. I TRIED to get a photo to show it you can sorta see in the 2nd photo.. IRL the WHOLE die is like that!!! :) Challenges I am entering are listed below!!!

My Card-
 TRYING to show you the sparkle!! IRL it is all SPARKLY!! :)
Before I go.. wanted to share how I will NOW be storing my copics and spicas, and a few other things I use when coloring! :) Went to an auction the other night.. and my FABULOUS Hubby surprised me with the set of baking dishes I wanted, but stopped bidding on since I had out right bought some little crocks I want! WELL little did I know the basket would be PERFECT for my pens! :) He came home and said.. Oh your using the basket! ;) I THINK he was gonna donate it to good will! I LOVE it.. I can take it around the house, and LOOKY room to add MORE copics, my refills fit in there too!! NOW to keep it this organized!! :)

Merry Christmas Jar Share!

Happy SUNNY Thursday!! Hope you're all having a GREAT week!! 
I had time to play along with this weeks MIM on Nicoles Blog...(if you know me you know I LOVE anything to do with Jars! Boxes, Bags.. etc... etc.. ha ha!!) I have a FEW of them running in my head now! So that was a warning you maybe seeing MORE! ;)

Here is the jar I created! I really wanted it to sparkle! So after I did coats of green and white paint I used my glitter spray paint over it! (need to replace this with the holidays upon us!) I then STAMPED it with my distressed stripes stamps from PTI and added embossing powder and head embossed so it would stay on! .. that is the GREAT thing about acrylic stamps you can bend them anyway you want.. so for the stripes I used NO block.. just my hand to gently lay them down and press.. I was happy with them!!! Then I added the FUN big tulle bow and embellies!! 

 Just some different shots of the jar and bow!!!
Challenges I am entering-
PTI- MIM Stamping On Mason Jar
613 Avenue Create- ATG/Twist (heart trinket pin in bow!)
