Trick or Treat!

Good morning lovely bloggers!

I am struggling to keep up these days; have gotten behind in my blogging duties - so sorry but I will make it around to everyone shortly!

Tellen's Place is having a wonderful challenge today - perfect for Halloween:


This is Spidy Ally, a new image - isn't she cute in her spider costume? I added stickles to the MS spider punches - don't they look creepy? The spider web is a rub-on from my SU! Demonstrator, Lisa! She's another crafty friend who is always encouraging me too! :-) She has a cool hostess program and I love the gifts she sends with the product - yum, yum!

I love my MS spider punch...well, they really creep me out but aren't they cool on a card? I found the stamp at Michael's for a dollar. The sentiment and little spiders are rub-ons I received from Lisa!

My son, Markus, has been busy cranking out a zillion images - more than I can list up at the store! Earlier, Tellen's Place show cased a bunch of new images and I wanted to show you my version of the Mummy! I added glossy accents to the eyes to give it that watery effect and really deepen the red eyes.

Look at that tree - isn't it gorgeous? My friend, Diane (1 Card Creator) sent that to me along with a bunch of other cool die cuts and the leaves! I was dying to use it - so glad she sent me more than one tree! See that border? Yes, those are hearts - from my friend, Sandra (Rose Petal Creations) in the UK and a Tellen's Place Diva Designer! I am hooked on those strips - they really add texture and frame the card in a really delightful way. The orange strip is a MS iron gate border punch that she sent me too. I know...I have some really awesome friends - they are very giving and always encouraging me! ;-) Check out their blogs - they're super crafty, too!

I hope you enjoyed these - there are more at my Etsy store and we would love it if you could join in on the challenge; it's a lot of fun over there! We have a new member - Susan (Susan's Crafty Chaos) and she's awesome with digital - check us out! ;-)

That's a real friendship card in the true meaning. I love that we all had a hand in it, but I must say Marcus had the biggest hand, the new images are awesome! ~Diane

Hi, Terry!!! I love the cards, and I'm still overwhelmed with Markus' talent!!!

Glad to see you posting, although I believe we all know how blogging goes -- you have your "good" days and your "not-so-good" days! LOL!

Hi Terry, its lovely to see you back in blogland and with such a fab card too! Spidy Ally is sooo cool and I love how you have coloured her! It has taken me a long time to get to grips with my colouring and I owe it all to my Promarkers...I'm totally rubbish with any other colouring medium especially watercolours! One of these days I'm going to pop a piccy on my blog of my craft's teenie weenie but tidy lol! I can't go without mentioning your spiders they look fab but I'm glad they're on your card and not in my house lol! :) Donna x

Hi Terry,

I have been meaning to send you an email coz' I have been missing you one helluva lot! Hope you have been fine.

I am happily using your blog candy. Have posted two cards already with the papers I won.

Love and hugs,


PS: These cards are awesome - your son is so talented. And the tree on the card is very real looking and so is the lovely border.
