Small pumpkin boxes

I often  visit  nursing home where there are a lot of patients who have no family to visit them.  My daughter and I made  40  of these small boxes and filled them with candy.  I plan to deliver them to the nursing home next week for those patients.  These  small treats  will surely  brighten their day.  Die Cutting Divas has  a RAK challenge this week.  This  should work real well there.  Give a Crafter a Cookie and CAS on Friday both have a Halloween themed challenge.

Pumpkin Cart

For his  cute  guy I used the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  I don't  always have ideas on a layout when I start so it is nice to be able to use a sketch.   Aud Sentiments has a Die+ a Sentiment challenge. I managed to  pull out my Spellbinder rectangles to cut pieces for this card since I couldn't get to my silhouette.  Both  Inspiration Destination and  Through the Purple Haze have Anything Goes Challenges.  Di's Digi Challenges has an Add a Sentiment challenge.

Ghost with Sign

Well it has been a while since I made three posts in one night.  For this one I used the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  Crafty Sentiments has a  Fall/Halloween Challenge. Crafty Gals  has a  make it Spooktacular challenge.  Fab and  Funky has a word art  challenge.  Penny's Paper Craft challenge is Anything Goes.

Autumn Shadow Box Card

Today  I made this  shadowbox card for the Glitter N' Sparkle Fall Challenge.  I really like these cards but I  did  think it needed more color so I added the fall leaf patterned paper  to the  back flap.  I used a  sugar  glitter fine  paper to cut the  word Autumn for the front.  Through the  Craft Room Door has an Anything Goes challenge.

Halloween Treat Boxes

Today I made this collection of treat boxes.   I like to have a  few  on hand so that I can give them out to people I meet along  my daily travels.  I filled these with jelly beans. I  hope whoever receives them enjoys them as much as  I enjoyed making them.  Simon Says Monday has an Anything but a card challenge.

Happy Haunting

I  finally found  a few minutes of  peace and quiet so of course I sat down in the craft room.  because I'm on limited time I needed something simple.  This sketch is from Little Tangles.  it seemed to just  fit for this image I colored a  few days ago.  Cupcake Inspirations has a Yellow Orange and Black Challenge. Jo's Scrap Shack and Crafting From the Heart both have an Anything Goes Challenge.  Hiding in My  Craft Room also has a Halloween Color Challenge.  Crazy Hazelnut has her usual Patterned Paper Challenge.

Light Bulbs

Over  the weekend  my husband finally completed an  electrical project  I'd been waiting  rather  impatiently for him to do.  he is out of  town this week so I made this card to put in his suitcase to let him   know I appreciate him finishing the job for me.  I decided to  use monochrome colors so I could use this card in the Cute Card  Thursday monochrome challenge and because it just seemed to fit  that way.  Through the Purple Haze has a  romantic challenge.  After  36 years.  This is called  romance at my house!
