Scrapmaster's Paradise Color Combo #69 and Funky Friday Challenge
I have been making different cards to give out at Hallowe'en and thought I would enter this challenge. I love the colors in this challenge. It was fun coming up with a card using the pumpkin and pumpkin faces and the little spider I found last year.

Hand Stamped Sentiment
was having a challenge for fall or Hallowe'en and I decided to try both of their sketches for two different cards. All of the DSP is from the Wicked Fun Specialty paper in the new Stampin' Up Catalogue. I bought that sentiment from Michael's one day because I thought it was so cute. I haven't done a challenge for awhile and this one was really fun! Thanks!

I just love this card. I don't usually do much Hallowe'en but my daughter and I sell our cards and I thought the people who usually buy them might like a few Hallowe'en cards. I wanted to use the owl and I saw a card in the Papercrafts magazine that gave me the idea for this one. I had previously also seen people use the Jewelry Tag Medium to make a fence and thought it would work for Hallowe'en. The Little Boo stamp is retired but so cute!

Well, I never usually make Thanksgiving cards but was trying to make a fall card and thought why not add a turkey to it, but then I got to thinking, why not try to make a turkey. Here was my first attempt.
This was okay, but I thought really not very cute and kind of big - The leaves made good feathers. I went to Splitcoast and found a turkey there made with the five point flower punch. I thought perhaps I could make something similar only using the scalloped circle punches I had and came up with this.
I used the scalloped circles to make the feathers and circles to make the body. The wings are from the bird punch and I thought the vest from the owl punch would also be cute. I made the feet by turning the "u" upside down from the Many Thanks Sizzlit die and just glued the "thanks" on. By this time, I had spent fair bit of time making turkeys but liked the background so tried one more.
I just had to stamp this one and cut it out - alot easier. Now I have a few Thanksgiving cards and have decided to send some out this year! :)
