Happy Owl-ween Blog Hop!!!

Hey everyone!!

Thanks for joining me in the Happy Owl-ween 2-day Hop! If you are just visiting and stumbled upon a hop, then start at our wonderful host Susanne's blog! (she has candy too he he he!)

 Hope you are ready to get inspired by some fabulous designers as I'm sure you already are with the previous 3! You are now on stop 4 with little 'ol me and I cannot wait to show you what I have in store.

I made an owl card for halloween using Sure Cuts Alot and my cricut. SCAL is my all time fave software and I use it 90% of the time when cutting with my cricut! I did not record a video for this card due to life as we know it taking over! The time as gotten away from me with some changes going on so I just have a couple of pics.

I used DCWV halloween short stack for the owl and background and orange glitter paper for the scallop. The ribbon is from Michaels $1 bin and the bling is Recollections (my second fave in the world!). I used his eyes as the oo in Boo! for a little play. This was super easy and quick....once I actually sat down and put it all together! I love googly eyes, especially colored ones. Sometimes they just add that missing touch, like inking the edges of your paper, which I did on the card. I popped Mr. Whoo on pop dots for some dimension.


Yep! I have blog candy to give away to one lucky winner in US/Canada who becomes a follower (also a requirement for the grand prize at Suzanne's blog). Just leave me a comment that you are a follower, or already one and the winner will be chosen by and announced Nov. 1st 

Good luck everyone, keep hopping cause some other designers have blog candy too! Don't forget to leave comments and become followers to win Suzanne's grand prize! Happy hopping and here is your next stop!

Good Afternoon Everyone!!

I have been ill all week, along with my little 4yo man  :(
We have been diligently trying to work on his goody bags for daycare all week! OMG! How daunting is a little task when you feel like your face will blow off your head! Crazy! Anyways, here is a goody bag (yes, I said 'a'--hence we have 19 more!) I made also to enter into a challenge at Decorate To Celebrate. For this challenge you have to make a party supply (invitation, decoration etc.). So here is my entry:

I hope you enjoyed the video! Now get your scrappy juices flowing and enter some challenges!!
