A "Boo"rific Halloween

At The Sisterhood of Crafters this week the challenge is "Celebrate the Holidays". The holiday we are celebrating is Halloween. It's less than 2 weeks away.

For my Halloween project I decorated up these small plastic pumpkins and filled them with candy for my kid's teachers.
All I did was add some paper to the eyes and nose and colored in the teeth. I just stamped a tag and added ribbon. Very simple.
This was what the pumpkins looked like when I got them. I found them at the dollar spot in Target. There were 6 of these in a bag for a buck, I couldn't pass that up. They also had black witches caldrons and white skulls.
Now see what my Sisters did for their Halloween project at The Sisterhood of Crafters.

Winter Wonderland

The challenge this week at Lollipop Crafts is called Winter Play. Just make any card or project that has to do with winter.

I used and image from Karber called Christmas Millie. Isn't she a cutie?! I colored the image with Copics. I do not like how the shading at the bottom came out at all. Looks like they are playing in dirty snow. : ( Oh well, other than that it's pretty cute.

Color My World - Brown/Blue/Ivory

This week at The Sisterhood of Crafters is another one of our new challenges. This one is called Color My World, it's a color challenge and the colors are Dark Brown, Light Blue and Ivory.

This is a very simple card that I made for my hubby's grandmother. Her birthday is next week. Not one of my favorite cards by any means maybe because it's so bland to me. Not sure that the ribbon really goes now either, looks more blue/green than light blue. Oh well, I know she'll still appreciate the handmade card. : )

You can see what the other Sisters did at The Sisterhood of Crafters. Hope you join us in this easy but fun challenge.
