BOO!

Wow!  There is so much going on here In a World of Craft and not all of it is craft related. 

My new 8 week old puppy is here! Oh she is sooooo cute and cuddly.  Her name is AlmondJoy (we call her Joy) and she was named this for her coloring which is chocolate and white. Joy is a Cocker Spaniel and will be my side kick I’m sure.  Here she is:

Well believe it or not Halloween will be here before we know it.  I am working on my Halloween cards and will start sharing those today. Expect to see one each day this week; that is assuming Joy will allow me the time (hehe). 

My first one is a simple card done in textured plain cardstock, in black, grey and orange.  The cat, moon and Boo are die cuts from Sizzix.

The orange cardstock on the medallion is pierced and then heavily distressed  in charcoal ink. The same charcoal ink is used with an oval positioning template to create the oval behind the cat.

Tiny bat brads are used on the moon and the cat is “dressed up” with glitter, rick rack for the collar, and a pearl. OK. I’m not a cat person but I think this kitty is cute!

I used the Pumpkin Border Set from Rubber Stamp Tapestry to decorate the orange background and the yellow scrap.  I know.  You are saying “she always talks about RST’s stamps” and I do! But it is because I absolutely love, love, love them!  They are very tiny peg stamps that have incredible detail. They are extremely well made and I just can’t get enough of them.

And last, I used some cute pumpkin brads in yellow and orange to finish off the card. 

Well it only took 2 days to get this post completed. Joy is keeping me so busy but she is a lot of fun. I hope you like my Halloween card. More will be showing up as soon as I can get them written up.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by In a World of Craft! And remember, I love getting comments!!!
