Buckets of Love!!

I just bought a new stamp set this past weekend. I love Halloween cards, but I'm not fond of most Halloween stamps. They are either too cutesy or too weird. I found a set that called to me. It is a perfect set for me! I played along with The Paper Players challenge. I thought this Jack-o-Lantern was perfect for the sketch!!

Ribbon Dress

So here in another one for the HYCCT challenge. This time I played the "Flat is Fabulous" challenge. This challenge was to create a flat card with 1 or 2 layers. I really had to control myself here. I am a layer and pop dot kind of girl!! I added some glitter glue to the ribbons on the skirt to make them sparkle a little!!

Hope Shirt

As I was looking through the card challenges for today, I came across a fun one! Split Coast Stampers has a Friday challenge called Free For All. Today's challenge referred up to another challenge that they have going, Hope You Can Cling To (HYCCT). Go check it out!! It is a very worthy cause!! I decided to play along with the "Inner Strength" Challenge. The challenge was to have some sort of dimensional on the inside of the card that could be seen from the outside of the card. I popped the t-shirt on the inside of the card with it popping out where I die cut a spot on the front of the card.
