Creative Belli Blog#75

The Belli challenge this week is sponsored by SHIRLEY'S2GIRLS, who provided us with this fun image. Make some time to go and look at their fabulous website!!!Our challenge was to use this image to create a Halloween card with glitter or bling. I wish you could see how glittery and glitzy the bg dp with the stripes is.........perhaps I should have covered up less of it.

The purple bg is done in stripes with the cb folder, and the main panel and the dp stripes(DCWV) were cut with a Nestability. The image is colored with markers, and she is holding a tag in her hand with a spider (which I find yucky!). I finished it up with a couple of bat brads, and a variety of ribbons to match the colors.

If you would like to join us, make a card with what you have on hand - just be sure it's Halloween themed with bling! Be sure to put CBC75 in your keyword when you upload to SCS. Also, link it to our blog so we don't miss it.

Don't forget to check out the other cards made by the Belli Team. You'll find links to their blogs on the left side of mine.

A 3rd Post! Can You Believe It???

Teapot Tuesday goes on in the absence of our fearless leader. MariLynn has suggested we still have our Tea Parties while we wait for Cindy to return. She posted a lovely Autumn beauty to inspire us, keeping in mind our party will involve hayrides and warm spiced cider. Doesn't that sound heavenly?? I'm packed (a toothbrush and a change of undies!) and ready to go. The Fall leaves on the teapot made me think of Autumn Days, the new set from SU. This is an envelope card, and the two pictures show how it looks closed, and the inside piece as it comes out.

The design is by Wendy Weixler (wendybell) who graciously called me on the phone from Utah to give me the directions. I think this is such a wonderful presentation for even the simplest card. Thanks so much Wendy.........I'll be making a lot of these!!

See you tomorrow. I'm done for the day - FOR SURE!!

2nd Post for the DDC and the CC

Right after I posted my first card today (which is below), I saw that our Doubledog Dare Challenge had been posted too. I like to combine the challenges when I can, so I went back to creating.

Out Hostess for the DDC today is Beverly (beestamper), who dared us to use a sketch she uploaded to the SCS forum. If you would like to join us,please put DDCin your keyword.

Hope you like this one.

Happy Snowman - Better photo? than below???

Happy Snowman

I guess I could have chosen a better bg to photo my CC card for today. I wanted to gray to show up, and the glitter to shine. I guess it does.

I love this image from Holly Berry House! It was a good thing I got up really early this morning, because it took FOREVAH to paint. I wanted to wait for each color to dry so they woouldn't beed into each other. I like to use nontraditional colors for Christmas (in fact any holliday), so the CC this morning was just right for me.

Have a wonderful day. Hugs to you all.
