What a crazy two weeks!!  I am so happy to be back and in the saddle again.  I hope you will all forgive me for not blogging the last two weeks - but I got a lot of cards I can share with you today!  How about if we do more than our usual 5 or 6?  I am going to do something a bit different this time.  If you have any questions on what was used or how it was used.  I will hear from you in my comment and answer you there! 

 Halloween is just around the corner - thought I would pad my Halloween collection of cards to sell.  Truthfully, I do not make many - but I thought this year I would make more than I usually do.  Love to hear about your take on these two cards!

 Of course what comes after the candy stuffing day in October?  Fall!  I love this time of the year for cards - I love the rich colors that fall comes with.  Don't you?
 I love these posy design papers - the aster dies the celebrate die -- to make this special birthday card!
 I used my water color pencils - and something else!  Dare to ask me???  I love the vibrant colors for this background!
 We were to make a messy card - sorry folks this is as messy as this girl gets!  Giggles!!!  All three pieces are dies and then went around the edges with dark grey chalk.

 After fall comes Christmas of course!  I have so many people I send cards out to -- I need to start padding up my Christmas stash!! 
 We all need to smile now and then?  Okay we need to laugh like a hyena - fall on the floor and pee our pants!  Here it reads:  We've been friends so long I can't remember which one of us is the bad influence.   Then on the right hand bottom, it says:  But I'm guessing its you!
 Can't read the background?  That is a good thing!  As this challenge called for illegible handwriting! 
I cased this card last week - and just love the way it turned out.  Of course I love books - good mysteries, and of course the Bible!  And I love cats!  Live with passion!

Well I hope you all live with passion this week!  Do what you like to do and maybe carrying it out to make someone's day!  God bless and as always - would love to hear from you!  Jan
