Hot Flashes!

Hi friends - how are you? How is the week treating you?

Remember that one time you made a fun card and your camera WOULD NOT WORK...period, even after charging? No, never happened to you? Well, it sure did to me so I have some uber lousy iPhone photos to share of my project! I'm sure you are thinking, well, just wait and take those photos later...um...the party is TODAY, so I can't.

That's alright, you'll still get the gist. I absolutely adore these sentiment combos from Hambo Stamps - their fractured funnies are some of my absolute favorites! I paired the sentiment (Don't sweat getting older!) with lots of candles from Mama Elephant's Birthday Wishes. I added a banner, some shading of the candles and flames with Copics and the handy dandy white gel pen for the lines and dots. The remainder of the sentiment was stamped on the inside (Oh, those are hot flahses? Sorry.). Tell me, does that not make you laugh??!!

Thanks for visiting; hope you have a great day!!

Crafts 4 Eternity - Halloween

It's almost here - HALLOWEEN! Are you dressing up? Do you have little ones that will be dressing up? Doing anything unique or special - TELL ME!! I don't think we have any plans, all our babes are much too old to dress up, so not sure what our Halloween day will hold! Whatever you do - make it a memorable one!!

This week at Crafts for Eternity, that's what we are celebrating - HALLOWEEN! One lucky participant will win 3 free images from Di's Digital Downloads, so we hope you will take some time to play along.

Remember THIS post last week? I'm using another fun digital image from Bugaboo Digi stamps - I love this pumpkin, just makes me giggle! I made another little 3D treat; a bag filled with Laffy Taffy and a decorative tag where the message can be written on the back.

The tag is Memory Box's Distress Tag; this time I stamped the matching stamp in MFT's Steel Grey with some of it wiped off randomly. I layered on a strip of DP, added some washi tape, enamel dots, glossy accents over the eyes, lots of colorful twine, and a tiny little clothespin to attach the tag to the bag. The polka dots on the clothespin are white, but I tinted them purple with a Copic.

Hope the recipient enjoys their little treat; meanwhile I hope YOU have a great weekend; thanks for stopping by; be sure to check out what the other designers have made - you won't be disappointed!

This week I'm featuring this adorable pumpkin from Bugaboo Stamps because PUMPKINS are a fruit!! Did you think they were a vegetable? I did!

Anywho, that pumpkin might be fruit but those M and M's are neither a fruit or vegetable - HA! I used this adorable frosted pillow box from Reverse Confetti, poured in as many peanut butter M and M's as possible and tied it closed with twine. I added this adorable and simple tag; the message can be written on the back. Sweet treats for Halloween - YUM!

Thanks for stopping by; hope you have a GREAT WEEKEND.

PS - this was my first time to stamp/color in 3 weeks - sometimes life throws curve balls truly bigger than one person can handle...that sums my life up very well! But I'm back in the game and it feels so good - good for my soul!

Take care!
