Now for my project, I made a St Patricks day card .  I used the Irish Lad digital stamp to create my card.



to color him I used crayola color pencils  added a little puff paint to the foam in the beer mug and some green stickles to the shamrock. The solid paper is from my scrap stash the shamrock paper was printed on card stock from a digital file I have called "Lucky You Paper" by Leelou. Embossed the top mat with a cricut folder added some ribbon and a stamped sentiment  from Studio G dollar stamps.

Now for my project, I made a Valentines card 'Old School'. I love flat single page Valentine cards I used the freebie images which is posted on the Design Team Blog , colored with my color pencils and cut him out with scissors. For the card base I used some hearts I had left over from a project I did last year  Cut with my Cricut (don't recall the cartridge) Added pink ribbon and stamped the sentiment using "100% Sweetness" stamp set from My Creative Time
  Just for added fun I put the Bear cupid on a wobble I love to add wobbles to my fun cards if I can! Sorry the picture isn't so good hard to make it move and snap a  pic at the same time. LOL

Boo! Oh sheet! It's a ghost blog hop. October 24th

Boo! Oh didn't mean to scare you but just wanted to have some fun and so do these incredible crafters who have made things that involve ghosts. I hope you will join us today and hop along to see what each person made.

Our hostess is Jearise from Lorby's World and her blog is the place to start at http://lorbysworld.blogspot.com . She will be having a give away so make sure to start there and see what she has to offer and learn how to get a chance to win.

Our sponsor for this hop is Jessica from SVG Attic (insert link to store http://svgattic.blogspot.com/p/store) so you have got to stop by her blog to see what she has up her sleeve. I'm sure you will gasp with delight!

Here is my ghostly creation for this hop...


  

To create this fun card I used 3 files from "Scrapping With Lisa.s Designs." The Ghost file, the  Vulture  file and the Spooky Tree file. The card base is black card stock 5.5 x 4.25 the yellow mat is 1/8 th of an inch smaller the top mat is from a 6x6 fall stack by DCWV I have had for a few years. Used some white ink to give it a foggy effect. The sentiments were printed with my computer using some fun Halloween fonts.

Thanks for floating in today to see what spooktacular creation I did and now float on to Jamie blog.
