Second Shot at 2Sketches4You

I knew I wanted to improve upon my card, so I went to the store and bought a set of halloween stamps from Heidi Grace. The set was perfect. The sentiment was the right size, the pumpkins were larger and have more character, the web is bigger and the spiders have eyes. I love this set. So here is my new and improved card. All paper is Bazzill and stamps are Heidi Grace.

2 Sketches Challenge

Here is my card for the 2sketches4you sketch this week. I don't know why I saw spiders when I looked at the polka dots in the sketch. Oh well, I like it. The spider stamp in the upper left corner is raised off the card with pop dots. All the cardstock is Bazzill, the flowers are all Prima. The witch and sentiment stamps are Hero Arts, the spider it is from Hampton Art Stamps and the pumpkins and web stamp are from Fiskars.

Non-Card Challenge

Here is my Non-Card for the challenge over at Paper Pretties. The challenge is to make anything but a card. I picked up this paper mache house from the clearance section of Michaels for $2. It is 8 inches tall by 6 inches wide. I kept it super simple as you can see. I used Heidi Grace paper, a couple ribbons and rinestone letters from MAMBI. Thanks for looking. Lora

Camping in Julian

Sorry no posting this weekend. The whole family went camping in Julian this weekend. It was so much fun. The kids all had a blast. We went with about 60 people from Nathan's (my 8 year old) Cub Scout Pack. This was the first time the whole family went tent camping. My husband and I usually take our older two kids camping seperately. I've camped with Nathan and Marty has camped with Emily (my 11 year old). Olivia my 4 year old was in heaven. She spent the whole time playing with Cicada's in the dirt, she only came near me when she was hungry or had to potty. Nathan looked like "PigPen" from the Peanuts. He was able to earn a couple belt loops and the boys did a service project while we were there. I didn't get any sleep eventhough I was warm and comfy all night. I just couldn't sleep which leaves me creatively drained now that I'm home, so maybe tomorrow.
