Happy Halloween...... & some news

*Note: this is my second post for today. 
Please scroll down to see the card I made for the Fresh Squeezed Stamps October Release.
Thanks!

I have a couple of cards to share today, as well as some news.

To start, I want to share the card that I made for CAS(E) This Sketch #52 by Karolyn Loncon:


And being Halloween and all, I couldn't resist making a card for the occasion.


I used some Teresa Collins patterned paper for my background. The rest of my supplies are from Papertrey Ink. I love how that notched die with the stars cut out of it looks in black, layered over the orange card stock!

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see the rest of the DT's takes on the sketch and to play along, if you'd like. You have until Thursday, November 7th to link up your card.

Next, I just want to take a moment to thank Ryann & Shannon from Fresh Squeezed Stamps for letting me design for them for the past four months! I've really enjoyed my Design Team term with them and look forward to seeing what the next DT will do with their fun supplies!

And, while one door closes, another one opens....

I was beyond thrilled to get an email a few weeks ago from Jen Del Muro asking me if I would be interested in joining her Confetti Crew at Reverse Confetti!






In honour of this announcement, I made a card using my Forever Fall stamp set
which sums up how grateful I am for the opportunities I've been given 
to serve on such fabulous design teams.



I used some new Fancy Pants patterned paper as my background.
I layered my die cut over top, on which I stamped the sentiment in black.
For the heart, I did something new for me.... I used Perfect Pearls. I stamped the heart in their medium and then brushed the Perfect Pearls over top.
I was really pleased with how well it matched the patterned paper!

Here's a little close-up of the shine:


So, thanks again, Jen, for asking me to join your Confetti Crew!
And, Jen is announcing the new team members on the Reverse Confetti Blog today, 
so please go and check it out.

I'm also linking up these cards for this week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Anything Goes.

Thanks for looking!
