CARS Cards For October...

               The Chicago Area Rubber Stampers...C.A.R.S  Meeting was tonight....the theme for October for our cards is Little Houses or Little Buildings. I used some of my precious and little used Heidi Grace paper stash....I've had it for years and I suppose that I was saving it for something special.
                Using the small house patterned paper, I cut a background mat. From a larger house patterned paper that was glazed for a shine, I cut out the focal point houses and trees. For the word "Home"...I cut out the words from papers in the line and popped it with foam tape onto the card. The other mats were various beautiful and colorful papers in the line.  I love little things....this theme was perfect for me.

Daring Cardmakers " Memories" Challenge

                       This week, the  Daring Cardmaker's Challenge is "Memories"....choose one of your favorite memories and create a card that expresses that memory.
                       I had so many memories to choose from...some happy and some sad. One thing that I'll always remember is that Halloween is celebrated in the states on October 31st each year....and my birthday is the day before. When I was a small child, I thought that all the decorations, costumes, fun and going house to house for Trick or Treating was especially for me. Eventually, I realized that Halloween was not just my celebration...but I still love the color and the spooky excitement!
                       The card that I made for my Halloween memory is an Inchie Card using Carta Bella paper cut into one inch squares....with a sweet little ghost as an accent.
                       Pick one of your favorite memories..happy or sad...create a wonderful card with it....and show it to the Daring Cardmakers.....we'll be excited to see it!
