Here are two other cards I made with the same stack. I hope everyone is enjoying Halloween. I can't believe it's the last day of the month, tomorrow is November and it's still warm here in Texas.

I just love this adorable paper from Nana's Kids paper stack. Little chipboard embellishments and alphas come all together in a cute box. I made this card for card a day sketch challenge. By the time I am done with the challenge I will have 13 cards!!! How cool is that.
This last little one is my DT work for Create My Keepsake. Dream Street papers. I added some rub-ons from Creative Imaginations and Offray ribbon.
***Heike - the stitches on this card are from DCWV. You can see them here.

I can't believe it's so late. I was watching TV all night.
Someone asked in the last post if I was joking about English being my second language. No I am not joking. I was born in Germany and grew up in Croatia. I moved here when I was 14. My family lives in Croatia and my mother is coming to visit in January, it will be her first time here. She is staying with us for a couple of months to help us with the baby. I can't wait.

1. English is my second language and I try to spell check everything. If you ever see a mistake on my blog, now you know why.
2. I love Coke, I have at least one a day. It doesn't taste good now that I am pregnant, so I switched to Sprite or Ginger Ale. I really hope my taste for Coke comes back.
3. I don't like surprises.
4. I have been driving a stick shift since I learned how to drive. My next car is going to be an automatic.
5. I taught myself how to sew and quilt.
6. I don't like cold weather.
7. I love pop-up books.
Deb tagged me with a smile tag, thank you. If you want to play along just consider yourself tagged by me. Leave me a link to your blog here so I can read some fun facts about you.
I have to share one more Halloween card with you using my new Glitter Halloween stack from DCWV.

Here are the cards I created with Nancy collection from Dream Street papers.

Down Under is the theme of our baby's room. This is not our actual room, this is just a photo from the website. Our furniture is lighter wood, and we don't have the crib yet. We didn't want the traditional boy colors and after countless crib sets we decided on this.
I am working on the wall decor now. I wanted to paint some of the characters that are in this set for the walls. The room is pretty big. I went and bought canvas and paints earlier this week and I finished one painting the other night.
Here is the wall hanging that came with the set.
Here is my painting. I will paint the butterfly on cardstock and then cut it out and adhere it to the corner. This canvas is 10 x 10.
I am working on a large canvas now, 16 x 20, and I will paint a Kangaroo and a Koala on that one. I like the way the quilt looks and the animals are larger and will fit perfectly on the canvas (see the quilt below). I have three large canvases to do and I would like to do more small ones. It's pretty fun. I plan on sewing some pillows for the full size bed that is in the room and maybe some drape panels.
I will keep you updated on the room, paintings and the sewing. I have more time now that I am not working, which is really strange. I have been working for the past 18 years and time off is really nice.I bought fabric to sew receiving blankets and burp cloths. That is my next project.

This paper is so elegant and I knew I wanted to use my wedding photos for this album. I added some chipboard silver stars, stamps and some jewels. I printed the poem on self-adhesive clear matte appliqué film and cut it out to fit my pages. To hold the album together I used silver rings that I added some ribbon to. We got married August 4, 2005. Maui, Hawaii.

I know you can't tell how huge I am in this photo, but this was one of the better ones. Still working on uploading all the photos. Don't worry I have more and I hope some with my belly. I saw this little display on my way to the bathroom (one of many) at one of the hotels, can't remember which one, and I thought it was cute.

I was hoping to show you photos I take this week, but I didn’t bring my camera cord for my laptop. No photos until I get home.
If I am missing from my blog this week now you know why. I will be back soon.

You might have seen these little butterflies that I made from chipboard corners before. I can't show you the card or the layout since they are both being published, but I can show you an example. Anyway, same concept here, except I used the flower and snipped away the extra petals.
