Happy Halloween

Everyday Madison asks "Is it Trick-or-Treat night yet?" and everyday I tell her not yet and how many days are left (really should have made her a Halloween countdown this year). 

Anyway, I have another Halloween card to share today. This one is for the new Halloween challenge happening over at Paradise of Stamps. I used the Kidlet Pumpkin image from Bugaboo Stamps. Those kidlets have been some of my favorites this Halloween season! 

The bats are little stickers that I had actually made for the kids with my Silhouette but I saw them on my desk while I was putting this card together and knew they would be super cute on it! I stuck a few googly eyes around to look like more bats peeking through the dark and some enamel dots I made. The twine is from Doodlebug Studios and the paper is from a 6x6 pack I picked up at Target.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

A Random Fan: Anything Goes
Cardz 4 guyz : Halloween (Mine would be for a little guy)
Party Time Tuesdays: Anything Goes
Shopping Our Stash: Halloween
Tuesday Throwdown: Halloween Colors

Punk For A Day {Humor Me Wednesday}

It's Humor Me Wednesday at the Catch the Bug Blog. This is where we celebrate the funny, odd, random, wacky and little known holidays. 

My card is in celebration of PUNK FOR A DAY {October 25th} and a friend's new baby. 

 I actually made this card a few months ago and have been waiting and waiting to share it! When  my friends had their baby boy I had to make them a cord (of course), but I didn't want the traditional cutesy baby blue stuff because they are not the cutesy type. So I came up with this and I think it's so fun! 

I was going for a punk rock baby look. The shaker rattle is from the Silhouette store, and I filled it with black and silver sequins. I cut it out of silver glitter paper and added black glittered stars to it and I love how it turned out! 

I made the banner on in Silhouette Studio and that cute little baby is Cupie Baby Sit from Bugaboo stamps. 

Inside of the card there is a pop-up gift card holder, also from the Silhouette Store (and yes, that's my Sam's Club membership- I didn't have the actual gift card when I took these photos.)

New Releases @ Bugaboo {and you're gonna LOVE them!}

I was so excited when I saw this new release image that Jodie drew. I knew I wanted to do something really fun with it, something other than a card. 

 So I turned into a winter "Welcome" sign. Now, my mom loves snowmen so I know she is going to steal this from me as soon as she sees it. So I am working on sign #2 now. 

I didn't want this to be a Christmas decoration, but more of a winter decoration. So I avoided red and green and used softer, more wintery colors, and of course, lots of sparkles. 

I used my Silhouette and the Doctor Soos font to cut out the letters and the snow flakes. I attached them to the sign with clear strips of acetate. I wanted them to look like they were just floating and it really worked. You can barely even see the actetate strips! 

Hop over to the Catch the Bug Blog to see what the rest of the DT whipped up and don't forget to check out the Bugaboo Stamps store to see some more great new releases.

Book Bag Tag {For My Oh-So-Forgetful Child}

We have been having some trouble with Zach this school year. Mainly he is very forgetful. He has forgotten his lunch box more days than he's remembered and leaves at least 1 thing he needs for homework at school almost everyday. So I made this tag to hang on the zipper of his book bag. 

I used the AKV Boy - School image from Bugaboo Stamps on the front. I colored him in Orange clothes (Zach's favorite) and added his name to it. 

On the back I typed out a list of the things he NEEDS to bring home everyday. Then I laminated it, punched a whole in it and used a binder ring to attach it to the main zipper on his book bag .I'm hoping that having this attached right to his zipper will be a good reminder for him to bring home everything he needs.
