Midnight Madness #25 & BasicGrey challenge#6

Congratulations to Cabio for her terrific easel card, receiving the Masterpiece award and a big applause for the Remarkables award winners Grace N, Vicki Basement Stamper, Stephanie Hester !

Thank you to Gurlee Girl Designs for being our Oct Sponsor with those fabulous stamps.

The weekly sponsor is Shawne's Studio 313 working with Clear Dollar Stamps. Her stamps are very adorable! And Shawne is so generous to send us these, I used the Under the Sea Set for mine card below.


I made my card ( click for a bigger pic)



using sketch25


The Jellyfish and sentiment stamp is from HighHopes stamps. And for the BasicGrey Challenge#6, I used Lime rickey papers. The#6 challenge calls for Blue ,Red, Green. Basicgrey papers are awesome!

I used a lot of sponging techniques I learned from attending Kim Teasdale's class at MyCreativeClass Room. She's very talented and is currently teaching 2 classes. See what classes are still open :)

In case I don't get to another post before Halloween... this is what's going on with me:

This weekend we'll be going to 2 halloween parties, one for our neighborhood block ( we also have a Progressive Dinner for christmas coming up, neighbors are planning) quite an active block with 10 kids around the same age). This Sat we'll be trunk or treating where the kids get together at the church and trick or treat from the car trunks ( fabulously decorated , lit up with lights and smoke and some adventurous soul hiding in a homemade coffin...) And there's a chili cookout before the treating starts. I have signed up to make chili, and I'll be decorating my trunk too. Have a happy and safe Halloween Everyone! and let me know what's going on with you by posting it on Priscilla's page I will go there to read so you don't have to write it twice :p

Thanks for stopping by, Hugs ~Jeni
