A few cards and a tag

Two friends have had surgery this week so I made some simple get well cards today. I used my new Stampin Up set, "Upsy Daisy", with the new "in" colors of Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze and Pacific Point. I love those colors together. I white embossed the daisies on white glossy paper and then swiped the Baja Breeze inkpad all over for the background.

I also finished a Halloween tag for an Inspiration Mingle for an online group. Every month a picture is posted for inspiration and you send your project to a mingle partner. Here is the photo for this month - a black lace skirt from the Coldwater Creek catalog.

The black lace on the skirt made me think of spider webs and Halloween, so I made an oversized Halloween tag. The background was embossed with a sparkly black embossing powder and vintage black lace and rick rack are sewn on the bottom. The images are from a Halloween image CD I purchased from Kris Hurst. Of course I had to add orange Stickles to a few of the hats; the others were colored with black glaze gel pens so they are a bit shiny.
