The holidays are creeping up faster than I'd like them to and so we start with my Halloween swap with lots of layers.... hope you like my card. It's too much fun!!

Recipe: (All Stampin'Up! products except for the boogly eyes)
Cardstock: Basic Black, Elegant Eggplant, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, summer sun and Textured Elegant Eggplant.

Here is my 4.25x5.5 for the swap... very different from the first, but I like it.

Can you say In Colors???

Ok, so can you say my walls are an exact match to SU's In Colors??? I started laughing so hard cause it's just by coincidence... I had my walls painted 2years ago now in November over the Thanksgiving Holiday... too funny... I put the cardstock right up against the wall today and just cracked up when they just blended in. Anyhow... thought I'd share...

My Princess turns 2!!

I can't believe it... already 2 next month... whew time flies. This year I decided to make the invites to her party. The new stamp set Princess Birthday was just screaming at me to use it... so, here is her invitation... I made it postcard style so It wouldn't weigh as much. I love it.

So here it is... in all it's splendor and sparkle....

Butterflies butterflies.. oh so sweet

I love butterflies and had this picture in my mind since I saw the new Catalog from Stampin'Up! Page 118? Yes, I knew I had to make my frame in the Cottage Wall papers... I LOVE IT!!!!

It wasn't that hard to cut out the butterflies at all and with all the sizzix dies... piece of cake... just had to work the colors and Tah-dah! There you have it. Hope you like it... I do!
