Totally Papercrafts challenge + DSB = Spooky Halloween!

Hi! Happy Friday!! Welcome to another Totally Papercrafts challenge! This week's challenge theme is "Spooky Halloween" and our sponsor is the fabulous DigiStamp Boutique.  For my card I used this adorable Halloween Hattie image.

I love these dp - they're from a 5X7 paper stack that I found on clearance at Michaels. Although I do buy a lot of 12X12 paper, too, I really like the smaller stacks for making cards because the scale is more suited to cards. It's a little hard to see in the photo, but I gave Hattie some orange Stickles on her outfit. The Boo! sentiment is part of a Hero Arts Halloween set that I purchased a while ago.

I'm also entering Hattie into the following challenges:
Cute Card Thursday - Something Scary!
Just Keep On Creating - Anything Goes
Pile It On - Holiday, Any Holiday!
Ribbon Carousel - Halloween Spirit
Scrappy Frogs Challenge Blog - Fall/ Halloween
Catch the Bug - Halloween Bingo*
*Something that starts with a P (pigtails), sentiment, 3 or more papers
Why don't you play along this week with the rest of the Totally Papercrafts design team? The prize is this week is 6 digi images of your choice from our wonderful sponsor, DigiStamp Boutique.

Stop on by the Totally Papercrafts blog for details and to check out the rest of the DT members' cards!

Totally Papercrafts challenge with Kenny K

Hi! Welcome to another Totally Papercrafts challenge! This week our theme is Christmas and our sponsor is the fun & funky Kenny K. Kenny & Elena graciously let the DT have some Kenny K images to use, so I chose the spunky Mistletoe:

I apologize if this photo isn't the best. My DH is in Colorado on a business trip and I (being the good wife I am, lol!) let him take our camera with him on his trip. So I'm stuck using the cheapie camera that I bought my (then) 12 year old for Christmas. I'll try to replace it with a better photo Sunday night.

It's hard to see in the photo, but I added white fun flock to the fur on her Santa suit and used some red Candy Cane Stickles on the mistletoe berries. (Yes, I realize now that mistletoe berries are white and holly berries are red. Oops! lol)

Be sure to visit the other DT cards at Totally Papercrafts. Then break out your Christmas stamps and join us in this week's fun challenge! You know you need to get started on those holiday cards soon....  :)

Totally Papercrafts - Shaped Cards

This week's Totally Papercrafts challenge is a fun one - make a shaped card, meaning no square or rectangular cards. Tricky but fun! Be sure to stop by the blog, check out the wonderful DT cards (the girls really did a great job with this challenge!) and play along for a chance to win a $25 gift voucher from Simon Says Stamp!

My card will be up late this weekend. I'm busily preparing for the annual Hatton Craft Show this Saturday.

For those in the mid-MO area, if you're at the show, be sure to stop by and visit me in the church. My daughter, Jessica, is traveling to Ireland this May with the Jane Froman Singers of Columbia College. I am donating half of all my sales to help her pay for her trip.
