Changing Gears – Slowly but Surely – AND Halloween

Happy Saturday to you!  As I stated in my previous post, OWH declared Mission Accomplished so I have been focusing on making cards for SAS4Kids. Before I started with that, I decided to do some reorganization of my craft space and storage, which took a bit of time but felt good to finish. However, I am a very messy crafter and my work space still looks chaotic, but I know where everything is.

I just sent my first box of cards out to SAS4Kids and it included some Halloween cards, which are new for me. I never really made any for OWH but had stamps accumulated along the way including hand-me-downs from Julie and loaners from Marie (thanks, Julie and Marie!), so I spent some time coordinating those with paper colors, Stickles, patterned paper, sequins, etc.

I tried to make them sweet or silly rather than scary but figured older kids would want something a little edgier, but this is just about as edgy as I get for Halloween.

The spider web is heat embossed which gives it a raised texture and I thought it turned out pretty cool.

I know Halloween is still a ways off but the cards are due in by October 1 in order to be distributed to the hospitals.  I had fun making them but don’t want to rush these last few days of summer, and I hope you have time to enjoy the sunshine a little more before we have to break out the sweaters and jackets.
