Happy Halloween - Daily Project for EC

Happy Wednesday and Happy Halloween!

I am scheduling this post early.  I live in CT and not sure if I will have power the next few days.  So stay safe to all in New England.

For today's card, since I have the daily post of Halloween, I guess I needed to make one more Halloween card.  So what cartridge should I use....let me think!  ;)  Um my new favorite cartridge again!  ;)  I just love CAC2 and am so glad I was able to get it.

Cart:  CAC2 and Plantain Schoolbook
Paper:  Coredinations
Face Stamp:  Peachy Keen
Sentiment stamp:  My Pink Stamper

Teddy Bear Thanks

Happy Monday! 

Today's card was made for a guy at work whose girlfriend just had a baby.  He wanted me to make thank you cards.  Woo Hoo, my first paying job for my cards.  ;)   It took a few weeks to get these done for him because I needed to use the new Teddy Bear Parade.  Since it took a while to get this cartridge sinced on the Gypsy, I was lost!!  I just can't use my Expression without my gypsy, I love that little girl!  ;)  So now that the update came out I was able to finally make the card.  I have already made three cuts from this cartridge (one card will be posted on Wednesday and I made the bride for my daughter to play with).  I just adore this cartridge and so glad I got it.  

Cart:  Teddy Bear Parade and Elegant Edges
