I am so happy to be able to be a part of the World Card Making Day 2011 blog hop...I hope to make a bunch of holiday cards today (as soon as I get home from my son's soccer game). My ultimate plan is to donate them to a worthy cause: Operation Write Home. Check HERE for a list of blogs participating in today's blog hop. (I'm not participating in the contest...didn't get to make anything far enough in advance to send in...maybe next year!)
I want to share some cards I made for Halloween as I start to kick off my "holiday" card-making. I usually start with Halloween, then Thanksgiving, then finally Christmas. I made a few Halloween cards for my little neices and nephews and I really hope they enjoy them! Later today I'll start some other holiday cards and I'll post them if I get the chance...I also hope to have some time to visit others' blogs on this very special day!
Anyway, here are the Halloween cards I made. Let me mention how much paper peicing I did on these cards...not my usual style, but FUN!
First up: One Eyed (and One-Armed) Monster!
Stamps Used: Recollections "My Little Monsters," Hero Arts "Flourish Background"
and "Large Canvas Stripes," Studio G "Happy Halloween"
Other Materials: Martha Stewart fence punch; Recollections dimensional stickers (eye);

Next up: Little Green Witch!
Stamps Used: Hero Arts "Flourish Background" Studio G "witch," Inkadinkado "crackle"

And finally...Frankenstein and a Halloween scene!

I have more Halloween cards to make but I think that's good for now. Thanks so much for stopping by on such a busy day. Happy World Card Making Day! I can't imagine my world without this wonderful hobby!
Have a FUN day!
