Monochromatic Pink

Good morning!  It is definitely fall here in the Northeast, and Halloween is just around the corner.  Kerin has challenged us at the Riley and Company blog to make a monochromatic pink card in honor of breast cancer awareness.

Here is mine:

I used one of the new Funnybones stamps called You Are Amazing.  You can find it HERE at the Riley and Company Store

Have a great week!

Hello again!  I can't believe it is already the middle of October!  Where has the time gone?  It is time for another challenge at the Riley and Company blog.  This time Joy has challenged us to make a Halloween card.

I have to say this was a definite challenge for me.  I don't normally make Halloween cards, and don't have very many supplies for them, so I really had to stretch the imagination.  Would you believe that art class at school has helped me???

I work as a para in an elementary school, and go to all the "specials" classes with the group, including art.  A couple of weeks ago the art teacher was instructing the youngsters how to make "spooky" decorations for their scene they were making.  Spider webs being one of them.  

Now don't laugh at my first attempt.....maybe I should have practiced more! LOL

The sentiment I put on is from the latest release at Riley and Company.  It is called Halloween Costume and you can find it HERE at the Riley and Company store.

I'm off to practice more spider webs.....

Have a great week!

It's beginning to look a lot like.....FALL

You thought I was going to say Christmas didn't you!?  Nope, officially fall is here with it's cool nights, warm days, and beautiful colors!  So for our challenge at Riley and Company Monica has asked us to make our projects with fall colors.

With my fall colors I have used Tractor Riley that you can find HERE at the Riley and Company Store.

Isn't he cute?  I always think of tractors in the fall because it is harvest time, and there are lots of fairs with tractor pulls!

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:

Pink Elephant Monday - anything goes
Jellypark Challenges - autumn/fall
Penny Black - autumn colors

Have a great week!
