Today is my daughter's 26th birthday. 
She said she feels like a true adult because the last step at this age was buying her own health insurance as she's no longer on her father's plan.
She's probably right!

She lives far from me.
I miss her everyday especially today!

BUT I take her birthday off every year to celebrate.
Hey, anything for a day off, right?

Today's tag is called My Turn Next!  

I love these cute little monsters.
The background was created with The Crafter's Workshop Stencil TCW437 Texturized with modeling paste and acrylic inks.

Kaylyn, I hope you have an amazing day!
Happy Birthday!

Love Spooky Trees!

Here is a tag that I created with paper scraps.
I went through all my Halloween scraps and found bits and pieces of trees.
I collage them together to create the tag.

Then I found these little chipboard tags to add to the trees.
I tried to make it look like they were hanging on the trees.
And I didn't even use a stencil, weird huh?

Thanks for stopping by!

You Used a Napkin? Yes, I did.

I found these Halloween napkins in the dollar bin and had to pick them up. 
I couldn't wait to turn it into a card. 

My stencil aliens made me use a stencil on this card.
Can you see the stencil?

It's the 31.
This is the Numbers Stencil (TCW480s) by The Crafter's Workshop.
I love this stencil. 
I use it for so many things.
That's it for now.
Halloween is almost here so I have just a few more cards to show you.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Only Use Gray, White and Black

I'm trying to create in gray, white and black. 
I have a hard time doing that because I automatically reach for color.
To make this tag I put all the supplies on my table and couldn't reach for anything else.

Die cuts, background stamp by Red Lead Paperworks, Golden High Flow Acrylics in Shading Gray, gel medium, The Crafter's Workshop Stencil TCW202s Harlequin, gray tag, scrap papers.

I'm not sure I like it.
I think because it's missing color.
Do you challenge yourself to only a few colors?
Try it!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
