Ink stains with Roni charm swap

So the last charm swap was such a hit, Roni is hosting amother one..this time around its Christmas theme. For my first set of charms I went with a winter Christmas theme. I added a little bronze snowflake and a little watchmaker vial that I filled with snow glitter by Martha Stewart.  The next set will be a set of embellished scrabble tiles with vintage Christmas images. Love these little charms!  I love making them but mostly I love receiving other peoples little works of art. Its so exciting!

Graphic 45 Happy Haunting tag

Over at Scrapbook Place this month we did a Graphic 45 tag swap with the Happy Haunting collection. I absolutely love Fall..and I love Halloween!!  It probably has a little something to do with my birthday being on Halloween and I have such great childhood memories of Halloween growing up. So here is my tag I designed for my partner Sue.

I used the blue starry background as the base for my card. I diecut Tim Holtz spooky houses from chipboard and painted them with black and blue crackle paint. I fussy cut the little image of the witch flying in front of the moon and the iron gate.  I used hinges to secure the gate to the tag so that it can open.

And here is the tag with the gate opened showing another fussy cut image of children with a sign that says :"Wishing you all a Jolly Halloween!"   I attached some pom pom trim to the bottom, compliments of my sweet friend Holley...thank you Holley , I love this trim!!  I added a little fiber in the Halloween flavors ;)  and a little bat charm.  Dont you just love this collection!!
