Elf On The Shelf - Kadoodle Bug & CardzTV Stamps

Hey Everyone...
Well....I do know that I'm not the most "wordy" person when I blog LOL.  Here's my problem...I'm not the type to write down all the name brands and sizes when I start a project.  Usually once I get going on making something, I get stuff from everywhere.  I get scraps from my scrap drawer, I use scrap ribbon, I may throw in a button or Stickles LOL....so you see, it's just whatever comes from anywhere.
So, here is a project that I made and I'll try to be as detailed with my materials and sizes used as possible.  This is actually the front of my card before I attached it to cardstock.
Card size: 4.25" x 5.5"
Holly paper from Cozy Little Christmas - The Paper Studio
Stickles - Icicle
White Gel Pen
 
Hope you enjoyed.  Have a great day. Susan

Spooky Pumpkins

Hey Everyone...
Wow! Can you believe it....two posts in one day.  I have really started enjoying crafting again.  It's amazing how much fun you can have when your family is healthy, calm and happy.  My mom gave us a pretty bad scare and I just couldn't imagine life without her and my dad.  But she's feeling better and my dad feels good....the hubs and the kids are healthy and doing fine.  Thank you Lord!
So, I've actually made about 4 cards this past week.  I can't believe it.  Now if I could just get this motivated to clean house LOL.  I don't know if it's the weather or what....but I have been so sleepy lately it's almost miserable.  And forget reading...I read a few paragraphs and........gone! LOL
Ok...anyways, here's my card.  I hope you like.  Have a wonderful week.

Spooky Creepy Cardz TV Card

Hi Everyone...
I'm so excited that I found a really cool and easy way to make rosettes now.  I found this website on Pinterest.  Now this shows an oval rosette but I also have this Creative Memories cutting template in round and so thats what I made.  The paper I used is from Walmart - Studio G and just some cardstock that I picked up at Joanns or Michaels.  Here is my card...I hope you enjoy.
