E.A.D Designs is Sponsoring 2S4Y!

2S4Y always has such amazing sketches and now you can play along for a $20 Gift Certificate to E.A.D DESIGNS! AWESOME! 

Here is this week's sketch... you are supposed to have a decorative edge on your card.

I used the Spooktacular E.A.D Designs Stickers for my card.  I took the labels and wrapped them around to form my decorative edge...I thought I was pretty clever. ;)  I also like how the spider web is black but still shows up well on the black paper.
 The paper is from the Cosmo Cricket Matilda Line...
and the candy corn is from the Bam Pop! H is for Halloween Stamp Set.  I colored it with Tria markers and then added glitter to make them sweeter. ;) 

Don't forget about all the E.A.D Specials and Torendi coupons going on!! 
You can see more info if you scroll down to my last post!! :)

I Love PB & J!

When I saw the Bam Pop! F is for Friends stamps with this adorable PB & J stamp, I knew it must be mine!  Other poeple must have felt the same way because it is already sold out at Torendi

I really wanted to make the stamp stand out so I just added a a couple of E.A.D Designs Stickerz to the card and called it good!

The Sentiment is from "Thank You Sentiments" (loved that it was in purple, perfect for the Jelly!) and the boarder is from "Stitches"

E.A.D Designs Blog Hop - Inspired by Kim Kesti (And a WINNER!)

How fun is this?! You should have found your way here from Kim's blog (I'm so honored!), if not, please start over at the E.A.D Designs Blog.  Today the E.A.D Designs team is using Kim's cards as our inspiration!! I just adore Kim's work! I used Kim's turtle card below as my inspiration.

Here is what I came up with!
I place my main image in the center like Kim's  and then offset my sentiment, similar to the way her bow is off set on the top of her card.  I used the E.A.D Designs Emo Love and Thank You Sentiments Stickerz!

Now keep on hopping over to September's Guest Geek Jessica's Blog to see what she has created based on Kim's amazing card making talent! :)

*The Winner of last week's stickerz giveaway is..... *

E.A.D Designs is Blog Hoping with Treats!

Halloween treats that is!! We are getting ready for the fun festivities of fall and showing you all the goodies you can make with E.A.D Designs products. You should have come over from Stephanie's Blog, if not please start over at the E.A.D Designs blog.

I decided to show you treats for adults instead of the kiddos this time around.  These treats are also a tiny SNEAK PEEK of the E.A.D Designs Stickerz being released later this month.  I'm sure if you saw something you desperately needed ASAP Emily would be kind enough to help you out with that! Until the release just be sure to stay tuned to the E.A.D Designs blog so you don't miss anything!

 I took an empty maple syrup bottle and prepared it to be the perfect Halloween Drink...Vampire Blood (I'm thinking red wine or sangria)!

Here is a closer look at the label and little bats.  The bottom reads "coagulates at room temperature." Doesn't it look perfect on the Cosmo Cricket Matilda paper?

Of course after all that Vampire Blood you are going to need some Altoids! I just gave the Altoid tin a quick makeover for the perfect adult treat! 

Now creep on over to the "terror-ifically" talented  Joanna's blog and see what treats she has in-store for you.  (sometimes I am so funny) :P

A new challenge site

*Please scroll down to see the E.A.D Designs Weekly Steal*

I found a new card challenge site to play along with this week.  It is called City Crafter and I found it because Amy T. is there guest designer this week. Congrats Amy! 

This weeks challenge is to use the word light or anything that provides light on your card.  I immediately thought of using the jack-o-lantern from my new Bam Pop! Halloween Stamps!  I paired him up with some Cosmo Cricket Matilda paper and created a little scene!  So fun! Both items are available at Torendi!

Thanks for stopping by.
Doing anything fun? I'm going 80's dancing with my hubby! :D
