Double up challenge

Hi Everyone!

I'm away right now with My wonderfully grown up --10 year old son Ryan at Disney world, I thought it would be a wonderful, maybe last chance to get to spend a Halloween with its trick or treating in the park and parade with him as "just a boy" not all grown up:-) He is my youngest son, the other two boys are grown up and don't need "mom" hanging with them so Im grabbing my chance with Ryan:-)

This weeks card for Totally Gorjuss challenge is... Double up! double the fun with two images on the card:-) so here's mine all decked out for Christmas with the girls all dressed up by the tree! I used SU design paper, Bazzill CS, The tree is from the new winter collection from All That Scraps which I thought would be neat to mask in with the girls, I added Decoarts snow writer for the snow on the tree, and fine doodle bug glitter under their feet, Half Backed pearls are from my pile of different sized pearls, i used copics to color my images and the red ribbon is from M's.

Please go check out what the other DT members came up with too:-)

Make A Shape!

Ok So this week for Totally Gorjuss the Theme is "Make A Shape" out of the Card itself:-) so here is my take on it:-)

I found a site that had different templetes and thought a fan, would be a neat idea to totally take me out of my comfort level of "square"cards :-) Thanks Net! :-) I used Bazzill cs for my templete fan pieces and then picked pretty papers out of Debbie Mumms holiday's stack. Added a filigree brad at the base to hold them all together, and even made my own tassle out of Perle cotton from my counted cross stitch stash upstairs:-) I used Copics to color my girl/w attitude and paper pieced red spica glittered shoes onto her! I had blue shoes, but the red glittered shoes won:-) I wanted to add flowers and branches but also wanted this fan more simple so I didn't add them....that was very hard, ha You have to go see what the other DT members came up with over at the Totally Gorjuss blog:-)
have a great weekend everyone...

I used some SU DP for this one in fall colors called Autumn Vine, added a few brown metallic flat backed pearls, Bazzill CS, inked the edges with my SU ink pad in I think soft suede.
I colored my image in with my Copics

I added doodlebugs glitter to all her flowers on her shirt.

I chose to make a fall colored looking card to give myself a change, and used some heidi grace papers I've had , added some pretty dark green ribbon from my stash pile, used the oval nesties I have a pretty flower I recently got from here, my MS punch for the leaves, doodlebug glitter to her wings, and copics to color her in. I had some skittles from pez-a doodle that i added glue and glittered with MS glitter !! (I love glitter) CS is Bazzill.

Happy Halloween!!

I think Halloween is my favorite because of the all the neat stuff to decorate and i love these colors together!
My design is a CC designs stamps and I had a blast with these bright colors! I used Twinkling H2os for the moon and tryed three times to get a shimmery shot but it isn't working:-( I added glitter to her wings and glittered black cs Bats from the MS bat punch. spider web is also MS.
the cs is bazzill abd the printed paper is from stock I had from a halloween fall stack. I took dew drops and glittered them too in purple:-) Just because I was in the mood for more then one color of glitter:-)The ribbon is from a roll from M.
I used Copics for the image, sponged the background a smoky grey from my chalk inks, I hope you enjoy looking at this cutie :-)
