Have A Question On How I Did Something? PLEASE READ!

I love to share what knowledge I have. I'm finding it more and more difficult to respond to your questions because some of you are not leaving a way for me to contact you. I am not ignoring those of you who have questions, but the majority of the time no contact information is given so I am unable to respond to your inquiries. If you are serious about me answering the questions you ask and do not have a Blogger account with an email address linked to it, please leave your email address or email me with your question at and I will get back with you. If you email me, be sure to put "blog question" in the subject line so I won't think it's SPAM and delete it.

Good Morning! Here's a couple of Halloween cards that I did this morning. This 1st one is kinda cheesy but I guess I needed to do something to get me into the Halloween SPIRIT (just a little play on words), so for the good or bad of it here it is---the image is from Penny Black and was colored with Prisma pencils and OMS then layered on circle/scallop Nestibilities. The spider web on the background paper was done using a clip art disc that I purchased ages ago from Darcie. It is the Holiday Treasures disc and MAY still be available. It has real value for your buck---448 images for $6.95, although I had gotten the 5 disc set for $19.95 but 2 of the discs has since been sold out. Here is the link---
The sentiment also came from that disc along with the spiders on the web, that I added poms and googly eyes to the larger spider.

This next one is for my dear granddaughter Chloe who will be 5 years old next month. The image is also from Penny Black that was colored with Prisma pencils and layered on a circle/scallop Nestibility then a little glitter added to the pumpkin, glossy accents added to the spider and pierced the scallops with a paper piercer. The background paper was embossed with Sizzix Birthday embossing folder, the band was cut with Martha Stewart Fence punch and a ribbon bow was added. The tag was cut from a Spellbinders tag that the words were computer generated. I added a Stampin' Up word punch and added letter beads that were purchased from Michael's. The BOO was cut from Cuttlebug Baby Face Alphabet that googly eyes were added. That's all I have for you today...I'm SO glad you stopped by today. Take a moment to leave me a comment so I know you came for a visit. You know how much your comments mean to me! See you tomorrow...Have a WONDERFUL day!

Hi Kelly...Loved both of the cards. Chloe is lucky to have a grandmother as talented as you. Thanks for the link to the clip art. I just ordered a set for myself. Hope I'm half as successful with it as you are.

Oh Kelly these are fabulous! Chloe will love her own personalised Halloween card! I love the sentiment on the first one and those pom pom spiders are just so cute (mmm if you can call a spider cute lol). I'm into pom poms at the moment! For cards that is!
