Halloween Zombie

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Saturday, September 15, 2012 4 stamps of approval
I'm still at Mom and Dad's while Dad recovers and now that he is out of the hospital and resting at home, I have a little bit of time to use my Mom's craft table to get a little crafting done.  I colored this image up the other day while Mom and I watched P.S. I Love You on dvd.  When I was all done coloring her, I thought she needed a moon, so I punched a circle out of a post it note and used the negative as a stencil to "dot" a moon.  Then, I thought of using the same "dot" technique to add a walkway for her and her little zombie pup.  I think it turned out fantastic!  This is one of my favorite cards!

Oh, and Mom, if you notice that your bat punch is missing when I go home, I know nothing about it!  LOL!!

I'm entering this one into the challenge at Saturated Canary - B's
I used "B"ats, "B"oo, "B"lack

Better Get Better, Dad!

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Friday, September 14, 2012 0 stamps of approval
As I mentioned, I am visiting with Mom and Dad, while Dad recovers from surgery.

Here is the card I made to give to Dad when I got here last week.

I dressed up my Stampin' Up! owl punch to look like a friendly nurse.  He really had wonderful nursing care at the hospital, it made his stay there so much more pleasant!

Meljen's Scrap It Challenges

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Friday, September 14, 2012 2 stamps of approval
Hi there!

It's been a while since I've posted, but it's been a busy couple of weeks.  I've been with my Dad while he recovers from surgery and haven't had much computer or crafting time.  Spending time with my Dad, though, makes up for the time that I've lost on my favorite hobbies!

Here, I have an ATC that I made before I left to come be with Dad, using scraps for the Scrap It challenge at Meljen's Designs this week.

I love using scraps to make ATC's - and this one was perfect with the new(er) image "Shaken Not Stirred" and the martini paper!  Also, punched out some fun martini glasses from a punch that my Mom had gotten me so very long ago!  Emily said that I needed some flowers, so those went on there last.  :)

I hope you get a chance to join us in our challenge this week, just use some scraps and have some fun!

Challenges that I'm excited to enter:
Scrap-Creations - Pick 3 (Ribbon, Glitter, Die Cut)

Happy Labor Day, everyone!

I've been enjoying the day in my craft room... and I got some cards finished!  Yay!

I made this one for the Saturated Canary challenge, which is Dotty

Here's a special note from the Saturated Canary blog that I wanted to share with you as well, about this challenge:

ALSO!!  Yesterday there was a blog hop for Jen Scull.  I had planned to be in the hop and then all day I thought it was August 28th.  (I will forever be a day late...and yes, a dollar short:).  I was really looking forward to the hop, and I missed it:(. The day was used to promote these stamps-- the proceeds all go to this lovely woman and her family.  I can honestly say that very few people have encouraged my heart like this dear crafter.  Her grace and faith are such a treasure in this crafty world.  

**For every entry into this challenge (up to 500, which is a really high number-- but I thought I should set a ceiling here:), Saturated Canary will donate $1 to Susan G Kolmen for the Cure in Jen's honor.  Spread the word and let's get lots of entries!!**

-Krista, Saturated Canary

So, come on and enter the challenge - support the cure!

More challenges I'm excited to enter:

Meljen's Designs New Release!

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Saturday, September 01, 2012 1 stamps of approval

There were SO many new images added to the Meljen's Designs Shop yesterday!!

Including THIS one!

I was asked to make a card for a friend who needed something for her daughter to give to her dentist.  Well, I had a hard time finding just the *right* image, so I asked Melissa if she could draw something up for me - and she DID!

I made this card in record time!  From the email from Melissa, to the printer, to the craftroom, finished and photographed in about 30 minutes!  I was so excited to have the perfect image, the card just came together almost by itself!  I love when that happens!

The rest of the images - and there are a lot of them!! - are here:

SUPER CUTE, right??  I'm ready to start making some Halloween cards now, how about you?
