Victorine Originals & Paper Temptress Card

Hello everyone and Happy Halloween to all! Today will be my last Halloween project for the year :) Todays card was designed for The Paper Temptress & Victorine Originals.
On my card today I used the Beautiful Card Stock from Paper Temptress:

I LOVE all the card stock that Patricia carries over at Papter Temptress, its all soooo beautiful, and pictures dont show what you can see in person, I try to get different pictures to show, but its kinda hard to in anyways you can kinda see the sparkle on the black.

Now for my stamping i used the darling pumpkin stamp from Victorine Originals.
Ribbons are from Really Reasonable Ribbon/Gingham
Feathers, and buttons to finish off my card.

Ive colored my image with copics. I then used the spellbinders circles, and scalloped circles & the top note die cut for my card.

Wee Memories/Brads,buttons,or bows(I used buttons and bows)
Bloggers Challenge/Happy Haunting
Inspire Me Friday/anything goes
Mami Doodles/Black and Orange

Sweeet Halloween Treats

Hello everyone and happy Thursday to all! Today im super excited to share my 1st project made since my accident. Its a decorated tube that came with candy inside.
I designed this using beautiful ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon all listed below:
Also used these supplies as well:
others: Halloween stickers,Spellbinders/ Michelles Scrapbooking and More , tree punch, tim holtz ink and duster, design paper halloween, hot glue
Stamp Happy Halloween is from Victorine Originals

I was sooo happy and excited to be able to make this tube. It seems like forever since ive crafted, and it drives one crazy not to be able to. Im hoping to make a card today with the help from my daughter, she will have to bring me all my crafting goodies, some are already in here, but i need help getting them all to my bed.

so for my tube i used some halloween dp, and wrapped it around the top and bottom of the tube, next i took some ribbon and did the same, i used a hot glue gun for my glue. then i made a double bow in black for the top, and then added a small orange polka dot one. theree is a little kitty on top as well.

next for the tag i used 2 spellbinders, the sqaure frame and the pumpkin, then I wanted to dust the pumpkin in orange, so i used tim holtz distress ink. I added some trees,ribbon,ghost sticker, and cat to my tag.

Also made a little ribbon treatment for the bottom of the tube as well.

I will be making 1 more of these, they will be given to my nieces for Halloween.

update on ankle:
so i went to my doctors yesterday and they showed me the x-rays , they reminded me of something Halloweenish///lol they had lots of screws on both sides you could see them all and then the 2 plates, i wish i would have taken a picture. next time i will

then they unwrapped my ankle and i seriously wanted to pass out!!! i didnt stop to think that the cuts were gonna be as long as they were and they were ugly, omgosh i had to take a deep breath and then relax, all was good then......hehehehehehe

thank you all for looking and enjoy your day!!!

Halloween Test Tube set

Plus Victorine Originals 50% off until Wed!
Hello eveyone todya im sharing a Halloween  Test Tube Set with sprinkles inside designed for Really Reasonable Ribbon and Victorine Originals.
 Also have some bad news, i will be having surgery on Tuesday for my ankle, i broke it on each side, and need to have pins put in, since it wants to keep coming out. Anyways just wanted to share this with all my wonderful followers.

I will be slow on posting, im going to have to have my daughter help me, since al my pictures are on my main computer in my craft room, which i wont be seeing for a while, since i have to go down 3 flights of stairs and that is impossible for me due to my so called "Good Leg" isnt so good or stable since ive had 2 surgeries on it years ago. Anyways i have a wonderful family taking care of me, so that things should be fine til tuesday :)
I found this set with the stand at Walmart and thought it was perfect to decorate for Halloween using Really Reasonable Ribbons :)  I'm going to give this set to my nieces so they can decorate a cake and such.  This set came with all the sprinkles inside and I think this will be fun for the girls :)
Ribbons I used:

Cat,spider,bat, and ghost on the bottom are stickers(3-D)

I really enjoyed decorating this set of test tubes for my nieces and hope they enjoy it :)  All the stamps were stamped in memento black ink and then I dusted with Tim Holtz distress inks around the edges of the tags.  I thought the darling Halloween stickers could be used by my nieces on some kinda craft project if they want to use those and the tags and the ribbon.

thank you all for looking and have a lovely day today :)
