I'm so excited today that I can hardly contain myself. My sister is coming home for a few days. It is the first time I have seen her in over a year. I thought while I am waiting for time to go to the airport and pick her up I would pass the time by posting a few cards and things that I have made. When I finished them and started going through the challenges I found that several of these could fit more than one challange.
I needed another bagalope to put homebaked cookies in so this is what I came up with.
It was a recycled envelope and all the papers are from my scrapbox and the embellishments are from my stash. Image is WOJ. For some reason the green colors look wonky in my picture but IRL they are lovely. Honest...they really are.

I think this next card is probably my most favorite. It was an experiment and I used a bunch of old things.
The image is Hero Arts. I purchased 3 of these butterflies in a pkg when I first started stamping. Brought them home and never used them because being a new stamper.... I didn't know what to do with them...
I had an old stamp pad by Stampcraft that has 5 colors of ink in one pad. Don't have a clue why I bought it or where it came from but I inked the butterfly up with it and this was the result... After stamping it I added Whisper Pearl Glitter embossing powder. I wish you could see all that shimmer IRL. Added jute ribbon and regular ribbon from my stash. Flowers are Michaels Bridal Table Confetti that I sprayed with Creme de Chocolat Glimmer Mists and topped them off pearls from Kieser Kraft. The paper is Basic Gray Indian Summer....Last years paper.

I don't make a lot of Halloween cards, but found this stamp in the bottom of a storage pail all gunked up. I thought it would probably not ever stick to an acrylic block, but it is amazing what a little soap and water can do to put the cling back in your acrylics... LOL Seriously I don't even know where this stamp came from unless it was a dollar bargin at Michaels that I let my Miss V buy last year.
Designer Paper is DCWV from last year or maybe 2 years ago??
I stamped the image again using the same ink pad as above and the same embossing powder. I love the watercolor look .. Happy Halloween sentiment is studio G and is embossed with Marcasite embossing poweder... Love the sparkle it gives. To finish it off I added a ribbon, charm and faux stamp stitching. It was really a fun card to make and I love using the multi color stamp pads.
