Chipmunk Treats


I love Halloween cards! They are so colorful. It's a bit strange, because I used to just hate the color orange. Now I love it! Is there a color you really don't like and rarely use on your cards? Mine is purple. for some reason I can not get a good picture of purple cards no matter how I try!

I actually colored this image last year and didn't get it made into a card last year so I it worked perfectly for this 2021 challenge! 

I added the image on to this cute Web Card (cut with my Silhouette)  and added some polka dot paper and a few bats to finish it off. Wish I had added a few spiders too! I added bats to the inside as well.

Bio 
I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with like minded people.
I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.
This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!

 
Many thanks to our Generous Sponsors for their continued support.

Chiminea Roast


I had all kinds of plans to work in fall leaves into my card, but in the end, I went with CAS and used leaves in my picture-does that count? 

I learned something when I received this stamp! I know who Muzzy, Monica and Mudpie are,  but I didn't know that little critter at the top is named Heckle! AND...my Dad has a chimney like this. He said he hauled it home from Mexico all the way to Oregon. Now the name of this stamp makes sense!

I colored with copics and fussed around trying different idea's to add a few fall leaves, but it didn't feel right. Sooo... I cheated a bit and added leaves in my picture. Yep, I'm a cheater. LOL Both card layers were cut with stitched dies from Lawn fawn.  I added a stick with a roasted marshmallow inside (cut with my Silhouette)as well as a white embossed very vintage sentiment  from  Winter Wilma SU! set.

This is such a cute stamp set and includes some of my favorite images. The meece are a good size to carry a card on their own-and come with great sentiments!

The card base was cut with my Silhouette - file named  Christmas Tree Folded Vertical Card.  I added a few misc snowflakes and some shiny mirror silver stars to top off the trees.
