A Joyful Day - Thanksgiving ATC

Good morning everyone!

I want to show you my Gecko Galz DT project.

I made a simple little ATC.

How could I resist showcasing this cute little image from 
Gecko Galz Vintage Thanks collage sheet?

The background paper is also from Gecko Galz.
The Mayflower paper pkg.

Both image and background were mounted on brown card stock.

The plaid paper is from our cross promotion with 
Songs in My Heart.
I cut it into a banner.

The lace trim was a scrap I had here on my messy desk.

I added pop dots to the image to be able to have it sit above the lace trim.

Halloween card

Good morning!

Today I have a quick card I put together for one of my 
Gecko Galz DT projects this month.

The die cut was cut with my Cameo.
I used several different acrylic stamps and black soot distress ink on it,
then added some wild honey and rusty hinge distress ink all around the edges.

The background paper is from the Coven paper pack.

The little girl image is from Haunted Ephemera collage sheet.
I inked the edges with black soot distress ink.

The Halloween twine
(Really Reasonable Ribbon)
 was a scrap I had on my desk.
I wrapped it around the card and tied it in front.
I put the flower on top and fed the knot through the center,
then unwound the twine and added the bat button on top.

I finished the card off with a little silver flat trim, on the top right corner.

Halloween tag.....

Hi everyone!

Hope you're all having a great day!

I got a quick chance to play in my crafty place today and decided to make this tag.....

Rearranging the mess on my desk I found all these Halloweeny pieces!

Most come from My Artistic Adventures Etsy

Just the sight of it all was inspiration enough to get me going!

The flowers, ribbon and mesh ribbon are from my stash and I cut the ghost with my Cameo. 

I inked everything with black soot distress ink.
Used stickles on the clown, ticket and ghost.

I was wanting to add this to a challenge over at 
so I added the staples to my sentiment boxes.

The challenge is
