Paper Playtime Challenge #55

Hi everyone, hope your having a great day. This easel card I made for my dad's 73rd birthday! He loves chocolate cake. (Who doesn't) My dad is a very special person in my life, especially as I've grown older. When I was young he was always working and supporting his family, so we didn't see much of him or had a very close relationship. But now we do and I love every minute I am with him. I love you daddy!
I am entering this card in the Paper Playtime Challenge, create an easel card...hope you enjoy it!

My Creative Time Challenge

I'm so excited, this is my first Halloween card. I didn't get my Cricut until last Christmas so this will be my first year for HOLIDAY cards...Yeah!!!!!  I made this card for the challenge over at The challenge is to make a card using the colors purple, green, black and orange and you cannot use your Cricut... This is what I came up with...

Here is the items used for this card:
Divine Swirls embossing folder, for black cardstock
Cardstock from Recollections and Colorbok
Fake spider web
Spider (I found him at the thrift store) COOL...
Chipboard sticker (Bought it last year for a quarter at Wal-mart
Natural twine, from my stash

I like the way it turned out, especially since my wonderful husband came up with the idea to use the spider web and the spider. Thanks babe! Hope all of you have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by to visit...
