Happy Halloween! BIC #40

Hey there!

Today I bring you the next TAWS Be Inspired Challenge.
It's a pretty fabulous theme!!

I just LOVE Halloween, always have. 
Yet I can honestly say I never choose to send Halloween cards.

So I made a tag instead.

I pinned a neat post on making Frankenstein Rice Krispie pops that I'd like to try as little gifts.

To make this tag I used TAWS stamps from the Funky Feet and Bumps in the Night sets. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.

RetroSketch #86

Good Morning!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

It's time for a new RetroSketch, and this week's is based on an older card of mine. Which you can see here.

I decided to use the TAWS set Toy Land for this card. I am loving this set, there are just so many toy images to choose from, and again, I have made a baby card. 
It's amazing how many of these I have needed lately. :)

I also used Tag-Alongs and Mad Gab for the sentiment.

Don't forget to head on over to the RetroSketches blog to feast your eyes on the beautiful creations Arielle, Laurie and Katie have made to share.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

We just got home from a trip to Ontario to visit some family.
My son got to meet his Great Grandpa (who is almost 93!) for the first time, they were quite cute together!

Good Morning!

I must say I can't believe it is the middle of October!!
This year has truly flown by. :)

It's that time where I need to start making Christmas cards, and the new TAWS release has some adorable images.

The Chill Out set features quite a few options of my favourite of the wintery themes, snowmen.

Cute right?

I decided, however, to use some of the other images for my card today, the cardinal and snowflakes.

I used a few other sets as well, Stack'em High for the sentiment and Trees Company for the branch.

I hope you have a wonderful week,
thanks so much for stopping by.

ps here's a pic of my little man enjoying the swings during our family trip to Ontario last week.

RetroSketch #85

Good day!

I am soooooo late getting this card posted. I have no excuse, just plain forgetfulness. :(

Here is this weeks fabulous new RetroSketch challenge sketch.
It's based on this beauty by Arielle.

I loved this sketch. So many possibilities, especially with papers.

I used the new set Toy Land to create this card.
So many adorable images to play with.
I did notice when I was editing the picture that my puffy snow on top of the pole looks like the Michelin Man!!

Please stop by the RetroSketches blog for more inspiration from Arielle. Laurie and Katie, our Headliner this month.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
