I had some Halloween DP  in my stash and it was a perfect fit for the theme and the image.

    Welcome back 
    I thought I'd show a card I made using some Pan Pastels and Versamark. Don't have Pan Pastels well dust off those chalks and you will get the same effect.

    Stamp the image with Versamark and then add the color - using chalks/Pan Pastels. What applicator did I use?? I just used my finger. I just gently tapped my finger onto the pigment color and then tapped my finger onto the stamped image. I also gently rubbed 

    I stamped a wooded image and used greens and blues and some browns on the trees. Used grays and blues  on the stream and the bank (by the label)

    Let me share my card with you. 

    I love this look, to me it gives me a misty/foggy morning look, Hope you like this look as well.

    Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - Challenge 42

    Hello everyone
    It time for another challenge over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends.

    I think Halloween is a fun time of the year so I decided to use an image that fits that theme.

    The image I decided on is from Bugaboo Stamps -  
    Silhouette - Happy Halloween Cat and is available here

    I  have a pumpkin die that I absolutely love and I use it a lot in the Halloween/Fall season on some of my projects.  For this card I actually took about 1" off the bottom of the pumpkin, to make it fit the card better with the all the other die cut images you see on this card.

    Crafty Creations Challenges - 324

    Hello everyone
    Thanks for stopping in today.
    Today is the beginning of the new challenge over at Crafty Creations Challenges.

    The theme is For The Home. 
    (I had to think for a while before coming up with something for this theme.)

    The Sponsor for this challenge is -  Fresh Brewed Designs.

    Here is a little info about Fresh Brewed Designs

    Hello, I am Heather Dennis, the Owner and Artist at Fresh Brewed Designs.  I try to make sure I  put God first in my life.  I am so blessed beyond all I deserve.  I have an amazing husband who supports and loves me more than anything.  We lead praise and worship together in church. I home school two of the best kids in the world.  

    Here is a little about our shop:

    Fresh Brewed Designs is a small online company that has been offering a wide variety of digital and rubber stamps since November, 2010 designed to meet the needs of paper crafting addicts everywhere!  With over 30 categories to choose from and new additions each month, our range of products is expanding all the time.
    We would love for you to visit our blog and facebook pagewhere creativity is brewed fresh daily. 

    I mentioned I had to about this for a while to come up with a project.
    Well I had something here all along,
     it was just waiting for some adornment.

    I've had this perpetual calendar for some time. But it has never been decorated, never used.  So I decided to show this  and I chose a cute pair of snowmen
    and decided to use that image for the January page.

    This calendar  has a sheet for each month  with a blank spot at the top to decorate and it also gives you the capability to note a persons name next to the day of the month. Each sheet has 31 numbered lines. This is a perfect reminder for birthdays and anniversaries or anything that happens on the same date of the month each year. And the great thing is you use it over and over, You flip the page over as you begin a new month. It becomes a darling and creative reminder you use year after year.

    Here is a close up view of the top section that I decorated.
    I used Frosty Hugs and Kisses
    the perfect image for the month of January

    I added glitter to the snowmen and added a bit of a sky with some glittered falling snowflakes. 
    A few glittery snowflakes by the month name and at the bottom 
    finish off this cute reminder for the month of January.

    Just think, I have 11 more pages to decorate 
    Hmm... Maybe I will do a new page every month til I finish the calendar. 
    OK I have January finished already so I will start on the February page in Feb and complete the individual pages in their corresponding month. So be on the lookout for this ongoing starting February.. This will be so much fun.

    BTW, this hangs in my kitchen on the side of my refrigerator, close to a regular calendar.
    The perfect spot.
