My Besties Halloween Post It Easel Card

Here is an early wish for you all for a HAPPY HAUNTING HALLOWEEN.  I've had this digi colored for awhile and thought I'd best be doing something with her before the spooky day passes.  I am totally in love with the Sherri Baldy My Besties collection.  The whimsical, big eyed images call me on a daily basis to check in and see what's new.  I've managed to collect quite a few of these adorable images and plan to get them all colored up for my Christmas cards, which is going to consist of most of my future post for awhile.  I'm getting my need and urge to craft back now that I am feeling better.  Little out of my element here as I used more stickers than I normally do, but I think it still turned out cute.

I've used the "Sticky Note" tutorial  by Eulanda Silvey at Cards, Cards, and More Cards.  I love this style and it's so easy to make.  If you don't have the tutorial you can get it HERE.

October Pink at Live & Love Crafts

I'm so excited to have finished this little thank you sticky note card that I'm jumping with joy tonight.. In honor of breast cancer awareness this month I have chosen this Saturated Canary Digi, Whispy 1, and colored her with Copics.  It's my first SC image and I just love her and those big eyes.  I've followed the "Sticky Note Tutorial" by Eulanda Silvey at Cards and More Cards.  Thanks so very much Eulanda for this cute and easy tutorial.  If I can do it, anyone can do it.  

Here is a closer look at the top of the easel box. The flowers are a combination of WOC,  Kort & Gort, Magnolia berries and leaf dies along with MS Leaf Die.  The Paper Doily is a die from Joy 6003/1002.  as is the beautiful butterfly.  I love the way it turned out.  I've also used Memory box Tiffany Frame and Cherise Label dies.  The sentiment is from LOTV and the lace from Live & Love Crafts.  This beautiful Maja paper is also from LLC.  Oh how I love the Maja DP.....  The pearls are from my stash and you all know how much I love the Stickles for the extra sparkle and shine, especially on her wings.

Here is the picture of the inside:

A Software FREEBIE For Everyone

I know it seems like forever since I posted anything on my blog but I think you are really going to love this FREEBIE!!!  There are no limitations as to who or how many can get this wonderful gift.  You must sign up October 8 through October 15th to capitalize on this wonderful offer.  



Just copy and paste this code as it has to look exactly like the above.  Also, make sure you enter that code in the promo code field before checking out.

Please let me know if you have any questions.  This code is for the download option only, if you choose the physical discs you will need to pay for shipping. 

Well now that I got that out of the way, I'm working on a couple of cards and gift boxes in my spare time.  Seems that since being diagnosed with breast cancer my life has been more than complicated with lots of doctor appointments, surgery, and now trying to decide if I want to do the chemo pill or not.  This next week I have 3 doctor appointments and they are all in Kansas City, so will be running up and down the highway again.

I miss all of you and have been trying to keep up on Facebook with those of you that are on.  I have managed to get around to visit some of you that aren't on FB and will continue to stop by as time permits.  I'm so anxious to get back to creating again.

Thanks so very much for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon.
