Halloween & Good News

Sorry it’s taken me so long. I had a few large orders this weekend, including my first wholesale order. I dropped that off today, so it’s official: If you are local, you can now find my cards at the Postnet on Road 68. Yay! I have a few more things in the works right now, but that’s my big announcement for today. So locals, do me a favor- go buy a card and tell them that they simply MUST order more of these fabulous cards!

Now, here are my favorite pics from Halloween. Scott was Batman, Sierra was a pretty witch, and Venice was a butterfly. They had fun, but it turns out that there are no other kids around here so they were the only trick or treaters. One neighbor said that they were the first kids in 5 years to know on their door! Crazy stuff!

Snowman Card

I’m loving both of the new My Mind’s Eye Christmas lines. I picked up the Be Merry die cut sheet yesterday and loved the snowmen! Here’s a new card I made with just the die cut sheet and some Bazzill:

I decided to let baby Venice excersise her newfound skill of picking things up and draw a winner for me. She did a good job!

So the winner is Rosa B!

    I don’t really have a favorite blog – they’re all so interesting! ) I get most of my inspiration from online galleries, namely CK, but I’m always looking for new galleries. I’m hoping to make some baby thank you cards today – just had my baby & need to get the thanks out soon! ) Thanks for doing the RAK!

Rosa, I’ll be sending you an email shortly.

Thought I’d also share this card I made with My Mind’s Eye’s Snowed In pack. I love these Christmas trees- and I’m not normally a fan of trees.  I think I want to make all my Christmas Cards this year from this line. I added some silver and copper brads as some of the ornaments on the tree and I love how it came out!

Giveaway!!

Today is World Card Making Day! What a cool holiday, huh? I’ve been making cards all week (keep an eye on my Etsy store for updates very very soon… including Christmas cards!), so I thought I’d share some really quick ones. These both came from the MemoryWorks World Card Making Day Kit that you can pick up here for only $29.99! I love this kit! These ones used the kit, some ribbon, and adhesive – that’s it!

So now here’s the giveaway: This is one of 6 of the card kits that comes in the MemoryWorks promo kit. It’s a My Mind’s Eye Wild Asparagus Kit, and it makes 8 cards (except there’s way more if you add in some more cardstock card bases!). (Sorry for the bad pic, not the best lighting at midnight!)

To be entered, just leave me a comment and tell me, what is your favorite source of inspiration? If you have any great blogs you love, let me know about em! And tell me if you’re doing anything for WCMD! I’ll leave the contest open until I get home from work tonight – 10pm Pacific time, and I’ll post a random winner tomorrow.

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!
