Another Halloween card and a new product for me :)

Good Morning! I actually stamped for a pretty long time last night. It was fun!! I'm having a thought about needing to get back into more scrapbooking because my kid's book are really falling behind so I'm thinking about doing a Scrap Page Saturday. Maybe that will hold me accountable for a least one page a week! It's going to be a trial thing, but today doesn't count :)

This is one of the cards I made last night! Yesterday I bought some Bazzill Stitches templates and although they aren't a new product they are new to me. At first I didn't think I would use them, but the more I thought about it, the more fun they sounded, so I caved and bought some. The orange flourish at the bottom of the card is what I made with it. I used regular DMC embroidery floss because I have a TON of it from cross-stitching. The templates were very easy to use and fun. I added beads to my stitches and just did backstitching on it. I started with black prism paper for the card base, the purple dot is from KI Memories, the stamp is from Stampendous "Max & Pumpkins". I colored with prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits and added glitter to the pumpkin faces. The gems are from Mark Richards and are smooth on the outside, not the normal faceted gems. Another fun card to make :)

Our quote for the day: "Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction". -Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
This is one of my favorite quotes! I used it in the scrapbook I made for my niece when she got married.

Thanks for stopping by and remember to jump on over to the All That Scraps Gallery and post some of your creations to win a Guest Designer Spot.

Cute - the stitching looks great! I had one of those, but I used it once and gave it away:) (I have tons of DMC, too!!)

Cute card! I received the Bazzill Stitches templates from a friend but haven't played with it yet, now seeing your card I may have to pull it out and play.
