Halloween Card

I am very happy with the way this card came out. I can't wait to give it to my sister, who love Charlie Brown as much as I do.

All the card stock is Bazzil (my fave card stock and thanks to finding 100 pk on clearance at Micheal's a few weeks ago - I have lots of it)

I used and "old-fashioned" technique called paper piecing (with the invention of home die cutting machines, hardly anyone does paper piecing anymore).

But...since Cricut doesn't make a Peanut's cartridge (which I have been suggesting for years), I had to paper piece this one. I used a coloring book that I found in the Dollar Spot at Target for the pattern.

The inside says "Happy Halloween - I hope your Halloween is Rock-Free"

Isn't it cute?

Here is the detail of Lucy and Pig Pen

Steve Perry at San Francisco Giants World Series Game

This makes my heart go pitter-patter. I love that Steve Perry is still rooting for his city by the bay !!

And he is still believing !!

I made a couple of cards recently. I made this one yesterday and took it to my friend Amanda. She just had a double mastectomy and will be starting chemo soon. The inside of the card says "Hang In There" I made it using the Country Life cartridge (which my sister-in-law talked me into to getting 'cause it was on sale at JoAnne's) - glad she did because I really like this cartridge a lot.

The other card is one I made for my sis a few weeks ago - no special reason - just wanted to let her know I was thinking about her and thought it might brighten her week a little. I used the Create-A-Critter cartridge for this on. I didn't realize it until I was done but it kind of looks like the Fruit Stripe Gum Zebra.

Preview of Glee's Time Warp

I love the Rocky Horror Picture Show - I've seen it well over 100 times - I stopped counting after 100. I was thrilled when I heard Glee was going to do a RHPS episode. It will air 10/26

Here is a sneak peek
