Happy Halloween!

Every Halloween we carve a few real pumpkins to set on our doorstep. I illuminate them with electric lights so we don't have to worry about candles and the kids love them.

Oh, and I LOVE toasting the pumpkin seeds too.

But for the past few years, I've also done foam ones so we can keep them to reuse year to year. Hey, if I am going to spend hours on these suckers, I want to keep them longer than 1 day.

From 2006: I did this Jack Sparrow pumpkin from my own design. I'm posting it especially for Jay 'cause she's a Johnny Depp freak er, FAN like me (okay even MORE than me, if that's possible):

Okay, maybe it's for moi as well....

Last year I did another Jack.

Jack Skellington, that is. This one I am posting for my niece, Ashley... cause we are both Nightmare Before Christmas lovers:

Jack Skellington PumpkinNow if youll excuse me, I have to figure out what the hell I am going to do this year. I have no idea yet.

Good thing I took tomorrow off as a vacation day...

Engagement Card

The neighbor's daughter got engaged recently, so I made this card for the engagement party. It was the first time I got to use my new stamps that I picked up the States last month!

A Card For Jeff

Next week I'll be travelling to the US and on the way down to Minneapolis, we'll be stopping over to visit fellow blogger Jeff from View From The Cloud.

Of course, I had to make a card, and the saying is something we joked about previously.

Nurses Week

For Nurses Week, I was asked to make a card to all the RNs in our Program. So I did an oversized card, complete with X-Ray, stethoscope, nurses coat and meds (thanks to Jolee's sticker sets).

It was a huge hit and was passed around all our labs for them all to see.

Grandpa's Birthday Card

My Dad's favorite colour is turquoise, so I try to include that colour ini his cards wherever possible.

Mother's Day Card

Vase of flowers made from a stamp by Michael Strong. I found Michael through the Scrapbook Lounge (which is now, unfortunately, defunct) and have about half a dozen of his cloisonné stamps.

Anniversary Card

Anniversary card for the sister in law. The embellishment is a metal tag, which I painted in to match the cardstock.
