Dynamic Duo's #70 and Curtain Call - Sunflower Surprise and just for fun...

I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend...mine was pretty quiet, made cards with my mom on Saturday and lunch with friends on Sunday and lots and lots of crafting time.  My card for today is for 2 challenges, Dynamic Duo's #70 and Curtain Call - Sunflowers...I am so happy that I had a sunflower set! I used last week's Muse card design to make my card, I fell in love with it but did not have the time to make a card to play with so I am using it now. My second card is just for fun. I love Halloween and one of Ashleigh's friends loves it as much as I do so I have to make a special card just for her.  The stamp I used is the only stamp from Wanda's Pantry that I have never inked up so it was fun.  I even had Ashleigh ink her fingers with VersaMark ink and put some red embossed powder to give the look of bloody finger prints (thanks Renee for the idea).  Hope she likes it. Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by to peek at my card....have a fabulous week.

  1. Oh, wow. These are just fabulous cards. I really love the first one--that Muse sketch is terrific, and you were so smart to use it with the sunflowers. And, who wouldn't like a card with bloody fingerprints on it? Of course. How fun to make a card just for fun.

  2. Amazing cards Kim! Love what you did with the border on your sunflower card...two patterns!! So simple, and so darn clever! And bloody finger prints????!!! I can see that I'm going to have to 'borrow' that technique at some point. Fantastic Halloween card. Great designs on both. Bev
