Halloween for Edwin

Hi Friends :o)

Halloween is getting mighty close.

I am sure all your little ones are very excited!

I really hope the weather is good for that evening.

We have had a lot of rain in the last week,
catching up for our very long and hot 

I heard today there is already snow near our
house that we will have to drive through as 
we arrive home late Monday afternoon.


Today is our 

As you know our DESIGN TEAM member
CATHY has chosen our challenges this month.

This week her CHALLENGE is

I had so much fun making my card for this challenge.
I decided to use Mummy Edwin # 145 from the
Poor Edwin doesn't see the light very often.

I have used Memory Box Dies:
Swooping bats
Wrought iron fence
Wrought iron gate.
All purchased from Diana's store.

The pumpkins were stamped using Halloween
Collection 2008. I stamped twice then cut out 3
pumpkins and put them across the bottom.
The Wrought Iron fence and gate were cut and then
put over the pumpkins. 

Edwin was coloured in rags 
then raised on 3D tape between the opening of the
gate and fence.  After I cut the bats out
I placed them on 3D tape as well.

I had the orange swirl bling in my stash
and laid it over the paper.
Speaking of the paper!
I have had it for YEARS and am sorry 
I don't  remember who made it :o(
I cut the part of it that I wanted.
It had more things on it as well.
I also had a brad that I added
on the top right - it is black with
a half moon and two tiny stars.

Here are more pictures for you:

Certainly hope you will join us in our Challenge
for Halloween!

Tilda with Apples

Good Morning Maggie Friends,

It is a sunny warm fall day, just beautiful with
all the bright coloured leaves.
Would you believe we still 
haven't had any rain?
I hear we may get some by 
the end of the week, but not much.

Hope where ever you live the weather 
is behaving itself.

I am back at my Mother's for a few weeks.
Always lots to do for her.

Today of course is our COLOUR INSPIRATION
The Design Team has outdone themselves again!
Please go see my team mates wonderful work.

The month of October is Cathy Lee's turn
to determine what we will do.

Cathy has a wonderful picture to help us 
along this time:

I can't get over the beauty.

So appropriate don't you think?

Time to show you my card:

As you see it is my usual plain and simple work.

I have used APPLE TILDA #3053

My design paper is very old from CTMH - 
but I thought just perfect for this challenge.
The red, yellow polka dot and brown 
were all from the same set.
From my stash I found this wide red ribbon,
the sunflower charm, also the button candy dots.
I also used red stickles on the lace of her dress.
Once finished I wished I hadn't used it - but
what's done is done :o)

You remember my camera is not itself
so my pictures aren't perfect, I just wanted to
give you an idea of what I have done.

Here is a close-up of Sweet Tilda:

Our Walmart no longer carries craft supplies,
but I found a few left over Jolies stickers.
These leaves go so well with the colour choice.

This card is going to a friend who has an 
October Birthday :o)
