It's almost Halloween!

It's time for our Halloween challenge over at Dream Valley this week!  Normally I don't send any Halloween cards, but it is a good excuse to play with a fun color combination!

I have used black and brown inks on this orange paper to try to create a spooky halloween card.  The skull is from Stampin' Up set From the Crypt and the sentiment is from Close to My Heart's set Wicked.

I love the pictures that my eight year old took of this as well.  I thought they really fit the card and helped create that spooky look!

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
Catch the Bug - Bingo (ribbon, orange, players choice-sponging)
A Gem of a Challenge - Spooky
Ribbon Carousel - fall/halloween

Please play along with our challenge at Dream Valley, and have a great week!

Buttons, buttons, buttons!

Good morning crafters!  Today at Dream Valley we have a new challenge!  We would like to see buttons on your creations!  Our challenge is sponsored by Freckled Fawn!  One lucky winner will receive a $20 Gift certificate to their online store!

For my project I have made a flower pot card!  The directions for this card can be found HERE on Splitcoaststampers.  

The solid color paper is from my stash, but I believe it is all from Stampin' Up.  The patterned paper is from K&Company and the buttons are from my mom!  Thanks Mom!

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
Delicious Doodles - shaped cards

Don't forget to play in our challenge at Dream Valley!  I can't wait to see your button creations!
