Hello, my pretty


Well, I totally scored at the crafty store yesterday. While I was browsing the Christmas aisle of paper and goodies I came across two different paper pads by My Mind's Eye that I had never even heard of or seen promoted anywhere before. I was shocked I tell ya! There was a 12x12 pad called Christmas Kitsch and a 6x6 pad called Merry Little Christmas... both of which are supah cute and thanks to some 40% off coupons, one of each came home with me! Woot woot!
I've gotta say, that find completely made my day and I can't wait to dig into them. :)

But before I jump head first into Christmas cards, I've still got one final Halloween card to share this year. I wanted to go with something sweet and cute so another Pure Innocence cutie came out to play, Little Witch. And instead of going straight to the Halloween papers I went with some random orange paper scraps. Just by adding in the bit of green and black with the touch of purple in her hair adds enough of the Halloween look I think. Her dress is paper pieced and I did add some orange shading to it to help give it some dimension as well. All in all, a fairly simple and pretty little card for my 'pretties'.

Alrighty then, be sure to drop by tomorrow when I'll be shining the spotlight on November's SN Guest Gal and there will be lots of fun previews of new stamps coming after that! See ya then! :)

Amy this is so cute! I love that you made it with just regular papers and not Halloween in sight. lol... Sounds like you had a great time shopping. How fun to come across some DP that you didn't know about. I am so happy for you. I can not wait to see how you use it. Hope you are having a great weekend so far. Hugs, Lisa

It's so wonderful to find some goodies on sale, especially ones you really really wanted!! (ever come across something on sale and you bought it just because it was marked down? ;)). Can't wait to see these papers! And wow, you know a lot about papers!!!!

Your card looks amazing! It doesn't look like you just threw a bunch of DP together to make a final product. Her dress looks phenomenal- love the checks and shading!

Cute, cute, cute! She is the cutest little witch with her orange checked paper pieced dress! I like how you used non-Halloween papers for this! It's so sweet!

Leanne said...

Awe, she's so cute! Love her outfit! The touches of the other colors just gives it just enough of a Halloween feel, and that sentiment doesn't hurt either. Gr8 card Amy.
How cool that you scored on those paper pads. Can't wait to see them in action!
Yay! Can't wait to see who the guest gal is and the new release.
Have a wonderful Sunday and stay warm. ;)
