I don't have any neat projects to share with you this morning as I need to get ready to leave on a "shopping" spree with a few of my favorite "girlies"!
But I do have to share Nellie and her pumpkin...there on 3 more behind her, I didn't realize she was so big!
Next photos are are from Thursday night of the deer eating what's left of my Burning Bush across the creek, it was just almost dark...and I took these from the inside of the house!

Today I have a "haunted house" to share with you. I used an embossing folder and cut part of the house out, I wanted to show the "background" trees a bit more.......the house was embossed on core paper and sanded......the moon, witch, black cats and pumpkin are all punches.....for some bling I used glitter paper, a jewel and yellow stickles in the windows....this is a "monster" sized card (no pun intended) and barely fit on half of a 12 x 12 piece of designer paper....all because of those background trees....I added pumpkin pie cardstock on the inside for stability ....I stamped a bat and another sentiment on the inside...thats about it.....except I entered it in the Saturday Spotlight With Hidden Potential at Stamped Smiles.....it was to create a scene!

Today I have the neatest vintage santa to share...I just bought this stamp yesterday for only $4.39...can you believe that? Our wonderful scrapbook store is closing their doors and they hope to be gone by the end of November, but each day they are still receiving new items...this stamp was one of them (sorry I can't mention the name)..I am so upset by this, as they carried everything, and I went at least once a week...I know most of it can be ordered online, but I love to browse and "feel" the items in my hand.
Whoops...guess I got side-tracked! I inked this santa in Stampin'Up's Riding Hood Red...you can see I did some sewing around the card...I just love the look of sewing on a card....I found a piece of a vintage satin ribbon that was the perfect color....the holly, I cut out with a die on some foil paper, they were popped up for a 3d effect and I "bent" the edges up a bit......cardstock used was all SU...Garden Green~Very Vanilla...I also stamped the inside of my card and inked the edges a bit.

I was so inspired I decided to make a few holiday cards.....the first one I actually based everything on from the background paper...love the colors...love the design...and love that "yummy" ribbon! I am really getting into finishing the insides of my cards as well......the inks I used are SU Old Olive and Chocolate Chip, I paper pieced some of the house and added gold glitter to the door frame, hinges and the bell in the steeple...you can always click on the pic for a better view.....
Speaking of the "bling"...I stacked one card on the other...and you guessed it...my white card now has red stickles on the back...so am adding a nice piece of pink cardstock to "fix" it up...geez, when will I learn!!
Stampin'Up! Cardstock: Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla; Designer Paper: Christmas Cocoa Specialty; Stamp Sets: Circle Circus, Four The Holidays; Accessories: Sleigh Bells Ribbon, Button Playground Old Olive, Silver Elastic Cord.......other: Stickles, epoxy sticker

Sorry I have been away so long.....had a "bout" with the flu...and Tuesday was my birthday...not fair to be sick on my birthday...but am better now.
I had this card made a week or so ago using my SU level 2 Hostess set "Wings of Friendship".....anything with a bird on it and I have to have it! I used my SU Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry along with Very Vanilla for this one. The flowers are "popped" with dimentionals....

My second card I went with reds and whites for Christmas.....I love the "sparkly-frosty" ribbon I added...it was just a tiny scrap piece used up...yeah!
I have been seeing on several blogs that the designers are decorating the insides of the cards, too...so I am now trying to do the same...so what do you think??
