Ghost and goblins and witches and pumpkins - time for fun and candy!

I have been crafting since I was a kid, making clothes for my dolls and drawing - loved, loved it even more when I was in high school and took art - took a double period in my senior year instead of getting out of school early i took this double period class and I remember wishing my entire day every day would just be art!! later as I got older I got into making clothes for a while and loved it - when I had my first son, I discovered ceramics thanks to a friend, so I did ceramics for a long time and loved it! then i started making party favors using ceramics - then all sort of favors.

I just kept going from one type of craft to another and that is how it has been for the last 20 years and I have loved every minute of it.

Now card making is not something I have done much, I remember designing cards for one of my high school teachers after I graduated she asked me to make some for her - these cards back then were all hand drawn and colored, nothing like what I am doing now. She would take the cards and get them printed and used them when she needed them all year - this went on for a while.

A few years back I made some more cards, much more simple than these here, and I know there is a lot more I can make but as always i go from one medium to another, from one craft to another and so on.   I really had fun using the papers from DCWV for Halloween along with some of the stickers, I also used some embellishments from K& Company, Helmar glues, embossing powders, ink pads for distressing.  I had so much fun making these cards that I had to make some frames too - there are a couple of posts from yesterday for the Halloween frames.  Hope you enjoy my work!
