Happy Halloween Everyone!

I sure hope you are enjoying your day!  Can you believe that we turn the calendar to November this week, tomorrow even?  Whew!  I'm ready.  I am excited to my hands on those Christmas stamps!  Have a great evening everyone!  Our soccer season comes to a close tomorrow as we play in the State 3rd place game at the Metrodome.  It's nice to know when it's the end at least, it could've been four weeks ago!  Thanks to all of you for your support.  It's been a great season!  Sera

Halloween Eve

Hello everyone and Happy Sunday Halloween Eve!  Aside from the fact that the DSP with the webs on it was cut the wrong way, the card is cute.  Augh!  What was I thinking?  Sheesh!  I made a set of these cards for my customer and club thank yous this month.  I hardly ever use that owl punch, and it's so cute!  Sera

More Bingo Bits

I was able to stamp a bit today after soccer.  What a treat!  We had frost on our field this morning!  We were out there by 7:30am and whew, winter is coming!  Our team is still winning (we are in the state semi-finals) and you may have gathered that since I've been blog non-exsistent for two whole weeks.  I obviously didn't get the automatic posting timer to work correctly on the blog, hee hee!  I've been busy with workshops here and there and I'm excited to turn the calendar to November!  I love Holiday stamping!  One die that is sure to be a hit this season is the peekaboo frames die (124587) that you see here.  Take a peek in the Holiday mini catalog on page 36.  I used it to make a few windows on these cards, very fun.  A simple detail that is fun and different!  Sera

Halloween Bingo Bits

I couldn't resist this set when I first saw it!  I love the bingo bits and I love Halloween!  Instead of using these little guys for the Bingo cards, this time I punched a few out and made a bunch of cards with them.  The DSP, Frightful Sight is in the Holiday mini catalog.  Very fun! It's a special day for one of the sistas this weekend!  Happy Birthday Carmen!  Sera

Simply Scored Fun

I've been playing around with my Simply Scored scoring tool and thanks to sista Julie, I came up with this card.  She had the dimensions at our sista meeting this past August and while creating with my current fave DSP... I came up with this.  The DSP is Spice Cake (124003) and I'm sure you've seen it everywhere!  Other stamp sets include, Falling Leaves, Four Frames and Full of Life.  A fun card, something new!  Thanks for your patience during my mad soccer season.  Playoffs begin this week, I can hardly believe it!  So far so good, we finished 14 - 1 - 1.  Thanks to so many of you for your well wishes.  Many of you I don't even know but I appreciate your kindness!  Sera

Les Feuilles

In putting my french skills to use, these awesome leaves (les feuilles) are part of the popular set, French Foliage (120845).  The 3x3 love note was our make and take at our sista meeting this past September.  Great idea, Angie!  Vicki made the card and we all were lucky enough to receive this awesome creation as a part of our swaps, yahoo!  We have great demonstrators in our group!  Thanks ladies for all of the great ideas!  Sera

Happy October

This cute card showcases the DSP, Frightful Sight (122351) and the petite pennants builder punch (122361).  I'm enjoying the weather and the time home today.  I found the floor and stamp space in my stamping room this afternoon so it's been a productive day.  October is a busy month at Stampin' Up as well.  There are many specials and exciting things happening this month.  Make sure to check back to see all of the spook-tacular events!  Sera
