Wishing You A Wickedly Spooktacular Birthday! Sketch Saturday #204 -Sponsored By Pages of Memories!

Whew...I didn't think I was going to even get a chance to play with my goodies this weekend, but I made it...better late than never! :P~

Was able to hep hubs get his assignments all finished up for the week and he even had time to get the weeding and mowing done today...we also put the boys to work washing the! I know we're so bad...but hey they had fun and loved it! I actually feel like we got a lot accomplished today and we will now have some time to relax tomorrow with the boys and make it a couch potato day with movies and popcorn! 


So glad I found some time to play with the Sketch this week! I don't know how Jo is able to come up with such amazing sketches every week!

The fabulous sketch this week:

We have an amazing new sponsor this please give Pages of Memories a visit!!

And the fabulous prize for this weeks winner will get 2 "Nikki & Friends" stamps of the winner's choice!

You're probably's not Halloween yet?! Nope definitely not October...but when I seen this image in the Tiddly Inks shop, I just knew it would be perfect for a birthday card for my mom! Her birthday is coming up soon and she is in love with goth and dark type stuff like witches and vampires and all that! And no she is not evil or into witch just has a very eclectic taste. So I know she will really get a kick out of this...or so I hope! :)

The image I used is called: "Spooky Birthday" and can be found in the Tiddly Inks shop HERE!

I had these plastic spiders left over from the kiddos Halloween stuff back year..they are actual rings that I cut the back off of. Those gorgeous purple moonstone brads are part of my new stash I got from my last order at "WOC"!

And I know I said I was going to stay away from this glittery paper but I wanted something super sparkly for the theme I was going for on this card. Takes me ages to clean up the super fine glitter that falls off of this paper after playing with it...gets all over in my hair, face, skin,! It also clogged up my sewing machine!

Used the same layout for the inside too...
