I made this card for a dear friend whose husband just recently died. He had been sick for a while, but that still doesn't make it easy to say Good-Bye. Her faith in Jesus Christ and his Promises will sustain her at this time, so I wanted to send her a card to let her know I care.
I used Wisteria patterned papers and Stampin Up cardstock for the card, and Stampin Up stamp sets; Watercolor Trio and I forget the one. Ink is Close to Cocoa and I also used Nestablities Circle and Scalloped Circle. After seeing a photo of my card, I'm thinking its a bit plain and now wished I had added some rhinestones down in the bottom right corner. Oh, Well, its on its way and I know she will appreciate it.
Well, off to browse some blogs.

Trick or Treat...

I made this card up for the weekly challenge over at Totally Stampalicious, where the challenge was to make a Halloween card. So I saw this image set from Our Craft Lounge stamps and thought it was cute. Well, Tricia over at Priceless Scrapbooks just got them in last week... so I decided to get them along with a Halloween word set from Hero Arts. Well, then I needed Halloween paper... (I don't really fuss with Halloween) so I picked up the latest paper pack from Echo Park.. I'm really loving their papers too. The inks I already had, Black Tuxedo from Memento and various Ranger Distress Inks. What little coloring it needed was done with my Copics.
