Dollies color love! and some festive funstuffs...

okay, today is DOLLIES DAY! well, as far as i'm concerned, EVERY day is Dollies Day, but today brings the very last Color Challenge for october, and i rather enjoyed this combo...

i want you to show me something
(some of you may already know that purple and i have a love/hate relationship - mostly i hate it, until i use it and end up loving it!)

my card:

the inside reads "congratulations are in order!"
and i loved up my new purple Maya Mist all good-like. that stuff's fabby, indeed! awesome coverage, a fair bit of shimmer, and a little goes a long way! a birdie cut with Nesties, a little corner sticker accent from American Crafts (i'm a HUGE fan of their Remarks stickers!), an Ippity stamp, and bob's yer unkie!

play along with us HERE, and be sure to ogle the rest of our Dollies' WONDERFUL creations!

i also decided to whip up some last-minute hallowe'en cards, as i've had these cute images for a while and thought it was high time they got some love, too...

this one's for the House Mouse & Friends challenge - never played there before but when i dug these little dudes out, i couldn't resist!
Paper Cutz is looking for Hallowe'en with stars, circles, diamonds or crescents (i have three of these covered!)

and a close-up of Mister Mouse, because i was quite pleased with this "halo" kinda colouring effect i tried out:

Crazy4Challenges also wants to see Hallowe'en themed stuff
and it's Hallowe'en at the Corrosive Challenge blog too (HI, JANET!), so i made another:

and the close-up, 'cuz that whole dotty thing is all new to me, too!

yes, i'm still rather enamoured with my Prismacolor pencils, although i will say that Copics are intriguing me SLIGHTLY.... ;)

i'm working on more stuff too, so i'll be back!
