Hooray for Halloween!

     This year I made seven Halloween cards for my grandchildren.  It is fun to design cards for holidays as there is always a huge assortment of embellishments and colorful card stock to use!

For my newest grandson, who will be seven weeks old on Halloween, I thought a cute scarecrow would be the best card.  Hopefully his mother will keep it so he can enjoy it when he is older!

For my three-year-old granddaughter, a card with "cute" ghosts and monsters will be perfect.  The two pull out tabs have Halloween messages on them with additional embellishments!

For my grandson who will be five on the day after Christmas, I thought he 
would enjoy a folded card with lots of pumpkins with googly eyes.   
When the card is opened, there is a "Happy Halloween" message inside.

I found a Halloween scrapbook kit at Archiver's, so I used the paper to make a Halloween card for my 11-year-old granddaughter.  It opens up like a wallet, so I put a Halloween message 
and some money inside for her to enjoy!

Two glittery ravens guard the card I made for my nine-year-old grandson.  I found some great embellishments at Hobby Lobby, and the large "BOO" made the perfect focal point for the card.

I saw the directions for making a pyramid card on Splitcoaststampers, so I used a spooky house as the main design.  My seven-year-old grandson will get a surprise when he opens the card
 as there is a large ghost that pops up and says, "Boo!"

My five-year-old grandson will like all of the spiders and bats on his card.  I painted Stickles on all of the pumpkins to make them sparkle.

A Bunch of Birthdays

     Since my latest grandson was born on September 11, I now have four grandchildren who have birthdays in September.  After making 50 birth announcements for my grandson, I made birthday cards for three of my grandchildren.

     My granddaughter's favorite color is pink with purple being a close second.  She also loves cupcakes, and for her birthday we made pink cupcakes together.

The card slides up, and the inside reveals the birthday message.

I got a bit carried away with slider cards!  For my grandson who just turned seven, I found a birthday riddle for his card.  I found a font that was similar to the stamped "Happy Birthday" and then printed out the riddle on card stock.

When the center of the card was pulled up, the answer was revealed!

For my grandson who just turned five, I added a bit of sparkle to the front of his card with some Stickles that I painted on!  

Everyone had a great time celebrating his/her birthday! 
 Now it's on to Halloween cards for all seven grandchildren
