Ghost Couple


It is the 15th of the month and that means I am showing you a new Dueling Darlings card.  For our October Challenge, Tracie and I are the hostesses. We decided on the theme-Pumpkins!   Tracie is one of the Dazzlers and I am on the Diva team--And we are all Dueling Darlings!  And, we have been doing this since August of 2010--so we are into our 9th year!

I sent out this cute image from Outline Rubber Stamp Company called Ghost Couple. I also sent some fall patterned paper along with a variety of fun embellishments. This was fun card to make and I hope the other Divas thought so too!

This is another card for my own swap that I am hosting on SCS.  It is a Fall and/or Winter/Christmas swap using Penny Black or Whipper Snapper stamps.  We had a low turn out this round, which will be the last round I will host for these companies. I made two sets of Christmas cards and this fall card.

Halloween Mess


It is time for another Hot Mess card. This is card number 3, so I think I will highlight the theme again.   The idea of Hot Mess ~ Success started with Kelly recently making a card and using the #hotmess on her Instagram post.  As we were texting back and forth, she said we should come up with a new group and she volunteered me to set it up! I then asked Jeanette, part of our other three groups to join us in this challenge and I also asked Terry if she wanted to be a part of the messiness!  So--we are a group of 4 and we will post a card each month on the 12th.  The general theme is to Get Messy and you will have Success!  Messiness can be almost anything that we come up with--glitter, alcohol inks, glimmer glitz, sponged backgrounds, etc., anything that is a bit messy.  Most months there will not be a theme--like our inaugural month of August!   But, some times one of us might toss out a challenge for the group--so stay tuned!



For this month's messiness, I did issue a challenge.  Use a Halloween colors or make a Halloween card.  I used Gina K Black Glitz Glitter Gel and a great stencil from Carta Bella called Happy Halloween--Haunted Bats! I used blender brush to lay down the glimmer on the stencil.  I then used a $1 stamp from Michael's that I think I have had forever!  


Here is the inside of my card:


Here are the links to the other members of Hot Mess ~ Success.  Please be sure to check out Jeanette's, Terry's and Kelly's blogs. I am sure you will enjoy seeing how everyone got messy and was successful in making some great cards! And--you will be able to see if they took the challenge of a Halloween card!  We will all be back each month, so be sure to check back to see what we are up to on November 12th!

Pink and Positive!


It is the 10th of the month and that means it is time for my card for the monthly themed swap that Terry is hosting on SCS. Each month she will post a theme and we make cards using any stamp set we believe follows that thought. This is our 45th month and the theme for October is "Pink and Positive".  

Since October is breast cancer awareness month, I went with a Paper Inspirations sentiment and Moxie Cure For All Awareness patterned paper.   I am sure there will be some wonderful cards this month. 

Here is the inside of my card:


I hope Terry and the others swappers like my card this month too! Terry has already posted the November theme.  Be sure to come back in to see what we create!

Happy Birthday Alice


It is time for another The Three Musketeers post. We are ready to showcase the card we all created with the image that Kelly sent for October--for Card #62!  That means we nearing the end of year #5--can you believe that?!  All three of us sure have enjoyed the challenges every month and we hope that it continues for a long time!  Jeanette will be up next for the November challenge.  Be sure to come back to see what we create!  


For our card this month, Kelly sent us this Neat and Tangled image called Piece of Cake.  This sweet image is honoring Kelly's granddaughter who recently turned one!  

I loved coloring up this large image with my Copic Markers and wanted to let the image shine for itself on the card.  I used only one color of cardstock along with a piece of subtle patterned paper from the Party Brights pack from Heritage Makers-Our Memories for Life.  I added some Wink of Stella on the icing.  I layered the sentiment that Kelly sent over the image as I wanted it on the front!  I hope you enjoy my card!


Here is the inside of my card:


Please check out the other Musketeer's cards.  Here is the link to Jeanette's blog along with Kelly's blog.  I am sure you will not be disappointed and will see a couple of great cards!  They may post today or tomorrow, so be sure to check out their blogs for their card!
