World Cardmaking Day Blog Hop

Good Morning!!!  Can you Believe it!!  We are in October now!!!  First I need to thank Joy for inviting me to be a part of this fun hop.  Okay well, Thank you so much for joining us for this fun filled hop.... Get your coffee ready and sit back and enjoy some of the Best crafters and their creations..... So today is World Cardmaking Day and it's the 1st of October so what better way to get you in a ghostly mode than by featuring lots of spooky cards!  If you came here from  Margie -, then you are in the right place.  If not, you will want to start from the beginning with  Joy -   So for my card I wanted something a little different, so I created this fun bi-fold card with a window.  Now this is not my design, but sadly I don't remember where I saw this, but I promise I will look for the link.  It does require some work, but when you put it all together it is so worth it!!  Oh, wait, just remembered where I saw this!!!!!  You can go to and look for the tutorial on their site.  So here is my card, I hope you will enjoy it and I would love to hear what you think.

So can you see the Owl????  All the supplies used in this card are listed on

I left this blank because I wanted you to be able to see the owl....

Yup!!!  It is a pop up card!!!  I just love this die!!!  Too much fun and when you see how they (Sizzix) uses this die in other ways, you will just want to get it!!!

For the Sentiment I use the "Boo" from Halloween Puns Stamp set -  If you have never tried Joy's stamp, you need to head on over to her shop and take a look at all the wonderful sets she has to offer.  Great stamps!!!  Okay, So Now for some blog candy....
It's small but I think you will enjoy it. I am giving away a Tim Holtz Alterations mover and Shapers die set!!! 

All you have to do to win it is, leave a comment on this post and become a follower if you haven't already.  Easy right?... Please remember to come back here on October 5th to see if you have won.  Also please leave an email addy in case you are the winner.  You will have one week to reply to claim your prize.  After that I will select another winner.  Only US resident's. 
Okay so now you need to hop on over to Melissa -  She has something wonderful for you all.  Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will be inspired to create something SPOOKY!!!  I have included the list of blogs in case you get lost.  I hope you have a Great Weekend....

Okay before you leave just wanted to share a last minute project I was working on.... not a card but I thought you would enjoy it just the same.  Will be giving these out to the staff at my school....Enjoy;)

super easy to make, paper bag, used the Tim Holtz on the edge die cut, the Spellbinders Nestabilities long classic scalloped rectangles, the QuicKutz witch die cut, the QuicKutz Nesting rick rack circles die set and the sentiment came from Joy'sLife Halloween Puns Stamp set, from , a hole punch and some ribbon.  The perfect treat bag for our staff!!!
