Friday Sketchers & Magnolia Stamp Lovers-Purple & Black

I am posting two cards today, both for Halloween, needed to finish my halloween cards so that I can mail them out on Monday or Tuesday the latest. I think I have two more to do. The funny thing is that I had a list on a pad in my kitchen of those I am sending them out to, figured I check the names off as I finish the card so I look at the list and the last entry I see that my son wrote "New Park". I must say it gave me a chuckle because "New Park" is the pizzeria that we works in, I guess he wants me to make one for his boss at work.

Anyway, card number one was done for both Friday Sketchers and Magnolia Stamp Lovers. This weeks sketch over at Friday Sketchers is by Jacque absolutely loved it and for the Magnolia Stamp Lovers challenge the theme this week is to use Purple and Black. Well, I've been itching to use this paper, and it was perfect for this challenge. So here is my take on both challenges.

MDUC #68 & Magnolia Stamp Lovers Sparkling

Haven't had a chance to make any cards lately, by the time I get home from work, I'm too pooped to pop, and my weekends have been very full. But I knew I had to play with this sketch by Debbie at MDU and at least get a Halloween card done. So this is my take on the MDU Sketch and Sparkling for Magnolia Stamp Lovers Challenge which will be my first entry for this Challenge.

Halloween Triangle Boxes

I made these adorable boxes for some family and friends for Halloween. I just have to fill them up with some chocolate before I ship them off. They were so fun to make. Once I got the hang of all the scores and folds I was just whipping them out. Can't wait to make some more... I found a video tutorial on you tube by just typing in How to Mae a triangle box and to my surprise found one by Becca. I tried to put in the link but couldn't get it to work.

Items Used: Paper from Bazil, Ribbon, Stickers & Nestibilities
