Happy Friday



I’m off to Adrianna’s storybook character parade this morning (see sidebar for live pics!), but first a quickie card for Beate’s 64th sketch!

For more inspiration, check Beate’s blog! Be sure to visit Cami, Charmaine, Lori, Mary Jo, and Sharon. Laurie, we’re thinking of you, girl!

Details: Cardstock is Pumpkin Pie stamped with Mona Lisa’s Scrapblock. Then, some Kiwi Kiss and random swirly black paper from my scrap stash. Ribbon from SU! (olive is a great match for kiwi) and May Arts (striped), Kaiser rhinestones (whoops, missed one!), and another clear tag from Making Memories completes the card.

Here’s something else I made, and I know Cami will appreciate! I pimped my pumpkin!


In my thankfully-ended quest for a new copy of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (the kids must have a book to participate in the parade, and ours walked off somewhere. . . ), I ended up at Barnes and Noble. They had these little kits by the register, and I caved and bought a “Pimp Your Pumpkin” kit. It came with the gold paint for a gold tooth, but I added some sticky tape and Kaiser rhinestones. I know, it’s tacky. . . but it made me laugh! 🙂

Quickie project from Adri for her teacher:


We had the googlie eyes out for the DD challenge, so she made this. 🙂 Have a great day, everyone!

    That pumpkin is “off-da-hook”. LOL
    Anywho, I just bought that “swirly black ribbon” the other day! I’ve been wondering when I’m going to use it.
    Also, where’s that cupcake card you were making the other day? You never did share girlie! 🙂

    Great touch with the eye being a star & the little pink hat, but the bling stole the show lol
    Very nice card the green really makes it pop

    i know you are probably getting a ton of cards in the mail, but did mine make it?

    Love your card Jenn and the pumpkin is just too much fun! The bag reminds me of the little monster Target selected as their Halloween mascot.
