Card-A-Licious. . .

I was fiddling around on the computer today and I found this new blog. I am super excited about it too. I have recently found a new love for cards. I don't know why, but I have begun to find them very inspiring and fun to make. I think it may be because they are typically pretty quick. When I finish a card I feel like I have accomplished something, even if I only had 10 minutes. I can never do that with a layout. I am, most undoubtedly, the worlds slowest scrapper! Seriously.

So, I thought that I would post a few cards that meet the requirement for their challenge. Here are a few of the Halloween cards that I have done recently.

It is a bit hard to tell, but this one opens up and there is a pocket inside to put pictures in. I could not get a good shot of it though. I love the little trick or treaters on this stamp. It is from Inkadinkado. They are a newly found stamp company for me, and I really like them.

These stamps are from my favorite stamping company, Hero Arts. I love them, both wood mounted and acrylic equally. Both kinds have their purposes. I find that I use more acrylic stamps on my scrapbook pages, and the wooden on my cards.

This one too is from Inkadinkado. This is one of my favorite Halloween stamps. The moon and the cat are so spooky, but in a very cute and animated way. I just added a bit of glitter to give her some oomph. I actually used this stamp to make the moon in the first card. So cute.

Anyway, check out Card-A-Licious. I think it will be a whole lot of fun in the upcoming months.
Thanks for stopping by.
