I've missed a lot of challenges but with Christmas coming and making cards anyway, I was able to snag these images from my pile of colored die-cuts to fit this one, so here you go. :) Thanks for looking!
P.S. We're getting ready to head south for the winter so I don't know how much more crafting will be happening on the blog in the next couple of months. Be sure to check out the Scrapendipity Studio Facebook page, or better yet, join the NEW Scrapendipity Studio Crafters Group where you can share your creations with us. Hope to see you there!!!
My all-time fave color combo for this week's color challenge at My Favorite Things. And who can resist the adorable sets designed by Birdie Brown. Clearly, not me! I've used three here for this card and I love how it turned out. Product list below.
Card #3, I'm on a roll. For this card I used one of the Leading Ladies sets by Ellen Hutson, LLC. These stamp sets are so adorable and I was excited to find Cozy Lady, who is me totally me. Hair on top of head: ME, cozy pants and sweater: ME, slouchy socks, ME, no shoes, ME, and coffee in hand: ME. She couldn't be any me-er unless she were a little chubbier. LOL!!! Anyway, I hope you like her!
It's World Card making Day! Are you a card maker? I am a scrapbooker-slash-card maker-slash-paper crafter of all sorts. LOL Here is my first card for the day. This one is for the My Favorite Things Color Challenge.

This card is for no special reason. I like the September freebie stamp set from My Favorite Things so much that I just started stamping them with no plan really. LOL These pieces are what I had laying on the table, so I figured I might as well make them into a card. I like it! What do you think?
"Hello" die and cactus stamps from My Favorite Things. Both were freebies this month, so you'll have to watch the store to see if/when they'll be available for purchase! :)

I've missed the last few sketch challenges, but this one is actually on time! Using the September freebie stamp set (adorable cacti, aren't they), here is my entry.
Usually I will stamp a couple of times when using distress inks, but I really liked the look of the distress here so I left them after one impression. It looks almost like diffused light on the sides of the pots, doesn't it. Also, this set does not have coordinating dies, so these are fussy cut (gasp!), something I am not usually fond of doing. LOL!!
And how fun is this?! I received this personalized note with my order. How sweet! This is how awesome the staff is at My Favorite Things. Every single one of them. Really genuinely nice people. 💓Thank you, Danny!
Thanks to the genius of Jennifer McGuire, I am getting much more comfortable with some new and "fancier than usual" card techniques. Her videos are fabulous and I encourage you to check them out, either on her blog site (linked above) or her youtube channel. Today's halloween card is a tunnel card with an extra little surprise inside. Check it out.
The bat from the My Favorite Things, Witch Way is the Candy set is my fave. Isn't he cute.
The inside is a "tunnel" with lots of fun things tucked into each layer.
The bare tree and stick/branch/bush thingies (technical term) lend a bit of spooky to the scene along with the skull and crossbones. The moon and bats are perfect for a dark Halloween night, and of course the pumpkin is a must.
And the biggest surprise inside -- a glow in the dark moon!!! The photo turned out exceptionally better than I expected it would in the darkness of my bathroom, LOL but isn't it cool?! After several fails, this one turned out pretty good, I'd say.
