Here are a couple of cards made with a new Stampin' up Halloween set! I just love all the new Halloween stamps this year!!! The one with the haunted house was sent to me by my friend Stacey, and the green/purple one is a card I made for a Halloween swap I'm in.

Here's my last round of ATC's for the night. The first one is rather dark, but features a little cat on a broom and the word MAGIC by Cherry Pie Art Stamps. The last one is just a very interesting image to me.... a house with eyes, and the little metal embellishment spell out the word LOOK. Alright, my desk is a mess, my fingers are inky so I'm calling it a night for now!
When I first heard of Artist Trading Cards I have to admit I wasn't thrilled. I couldn't see the big deal about these things-why not just stick to making cards I thought, but once you get into them and give them a try they are such fun little works of art!!!! Here's my attempt at a few for today! I think I am going to spend some time this weekend experimenting with more and see what I come up with.
I was so excited to find a wonderful package in my mailbox this week from my friend Erin! It was filled with tons of goodies that used all Stampin' Up supplies. I love that long notepad, and the little coaster post it note album. The card samples are fabulous as well. Actually that wasn't all that was in the package...she also included some rub ons, a SU cling sticker which I think I'll put on my car window, and my favorite thing was a really cool pink Stampin' Up coffee mug. Thanks again Erin, if you are reading this-you rock!!!

My friend Marv is hosting a grungeboard swap. I signed up, and this is my creation for it. For some reason I can't get the lighting right on this tag card today, but it uses a Tim Holtz stamp, Adirondak Color Wash spray inks, and grungeboard. I also had some new flowers arrive the other day, so I decided to use one as the background flower, and spray the other to match my tag.
