Orange day - Happy Halloween

Somehow it feels like an orange day today, I think it is the pumpkin influence. Did you do anything special for Halloween, we had very few children around here this year - I think they are all growing up! Do you use orange in your card making. I found I was using it a lot in the summer with lime green, and now it is perfect with browns as Autumn has arrived.The plain grosgrain ribbons are ideal for card and scrapbooking projects and teamed up with papers are perfect. I have shown a few examples of items in the shop - but there is a lot more to see.

I have been having a wander around the web, I rarely have time to browse through sites - and thought I would set aside some time each day to have a look around. I remember when I first set up my card web site - 7 years ago there were only a handful of sites that featured cards on the internet, you could find and visit them in an evening....now things are totally different. There are thousands of them out there now, although I think in the US Scrapbooking is the winning force - I found this blog - Sentiments by Denise I thought her selection of cards were worth a peek. I will have to find another tomorrow....

thanks for sharing that blog - some great cards there, and of course your yummy goodies for all to see.

Just a thought, I know the weekend challenge is approaching - but perhaps we could have a set theme or colour scheme for a card or even using particular items from the shop? what do you think? see how many variations we can have using the same materials. this could be something for the future perhaps? xx

We have done things from the shop before for a comp and about time to revisit it again. We have been having a rest from the comps as the challenges had taken over - but I reckon we can get back into it all for the winter months!
