I thought it would be fun to make him come out of a scary forest with the full moon behind him.

Happy Hallowe’en 2017


Happy Hallowe’en Everybody!

Sharing a card that I made using Polkadoodles – digital stamp Winnie Wednesday Witch and a mixture of Hampton Arts Hallowe’en stamps, stamped with Memento Ink using my Misti.

Here is a close-up of Winnie.

I used Copic markers to colour the images.

Embossed the background paper with Cuttlebug – Seeing Spots and then used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet on the raised edges.

Background paper – Doodlebug Design Inc. – Hallowe’en Parade (6 in. x 6 in.)

Used my Cricut – Explore to cut out the “Happy Hallowe’en”.

Here is the inside of the card.

Boo’s Hallowe’en Card to Vet 2016


Hi There,

For those of you that follow me, you all know that I have a cat named “Boo”.  She was a rescue cat and we were so lucky to get her. She was 6.5 years old at the time and is now a little over 13 years old. We love her sooo much! She turned out to be extremely loveable and we couldn’t be happier with her!

Since her name was “Boo” we didn’t change it and I made a card for the vet from her for Hallowe’en. How could I not?? She was the perfect Hallowe’en cat. LOL! As a result, it is now a tradition for me to make cards for the vet and his staff for all of the special holidays and occasions from “Boo”.

This is the card that I made for this year.

The front of the card is made using stamps from Hampton Art Clear Stamps and Recollections Clear Stamps.

Background papers are from Pebbles – Tricks and Treats – 6 x 6 Paper pad.

Sentiment is from Cricut – Autumn Celebrations – Happy Halloween #M38C94 and  My Creative Time – Too Cute to Spook.

This inside was made using .svg cuts from Marjorie Ann Designs \ Kristi W. Designs – Scaredy Cats and Little Scraps of Heaven “Boo Ghost”.

Here are some close-ups:

On the back of the card,  I used an svg from Miss Kate Cuttables called “witch-in-moon-10-25-16”.

Happy Hallowe’en Witch and Cauldron

Sentiment is also from Kenny K Stamps (“Halloween Sassy Sentiments” digi stamps by KennyK Stamps”). I had entered into a contest and was one of the winners for the caption below. As a result, I won the image and the full set of captions from Kenny K Stamps. YAY!

Hallowe’en 2015


Happy Hallowe’en 2015

Halloween Front 2015-2 in 300 dpi - CopyHalloween Inside 2015 in 300 dpi

This is my card for the vet this year from our black cat “Boo”. For each occasion the vet and staff get a new card from “Boo”.

Hallowe’en is our favourite though.

The black cats and caption “Don’t be a Scaredy Cat” are from the set “Don’t be a Scaredy Cat” by Too Cute by Jessica – Jessica Owens 2014.

I fell in love with set as soon as I saw it.

The word “Boo” was a weekly freebie from “Treasure Box Designs”.

The “Happy Hallowe’en” sentiment on the inside of the card is from Cricut Cartridge “Phrases”.

The following stamps:

Lamp post and sign, ghost, mummy, little spiders and “Trick or Treat” sentiment are all from “My Creative Time – Too Cute to Spook” Stamp and Die set.

Coloured in the mummy’s face with PrismaColor Premier pencils and the used Gamsol for shading. On the pumpkins and “Boo” title, I outlined everything with chalk.

All svg files were cut using my Cricut Explore and Cricut Design Studio.

Patterned paper is from “doodlebug design inc. – 6 x 6 paper pad – Halloween parade”.

Happy early Hallowe’en everyone!
