a few halloween cards

Found a few hours to make a few halloween cards this weekend. Hoping I can make 3 more then I can give them to the kids, I don't really know what other use I have for Halloween cards, not like i mail them to anyone!

challenges for this card:
1.  ColourQ #313
2.  CASology #169 Zombie
3.  Friday Mashup #231 Halloween  (card below also for Friday Mashup!)
4. Addicted to CAS #75: Spooky (card below also for Addicted to CAS!)

This card, which I love the for the following challenges:
1.  MUSE #138
2.  The Friday Mashup #231 (link is above)
3. Addicted to CAS #75 (link is above)

I feel like I have little to no time ever to devote to my blog and paper crafting.  It's truly a balancing act that I fail at being a working mother of 5.  I'm tired all the time it seems.....I can't even keep up with normal daily things, let alone taking time to myself to papercraft. is always nice when I actually do find time to sit down and make something. taking the time to blog them doesn't always happen and that is why I have cut down on my links....trying to just save precious time.  I love doing the challenges, not trying to win or anything just want to share what I have made like I love seeing and being inspired by others work.  Sorry I have not posted the photos of the challenges.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.



  1. Hey! Haven't seen you for a while - love these cards - I also don't send Halloween cards, but man the supplies are so cute! I completely understand trying to balance, but I only have 2 kids - my hat is off to you for sure! I will be glad to see you whenever you get a chance - you are always welcome! So glad you joined us this week, Tracey!

  2. Oops - I'm back! You doubled up and I'm thrilled to see you over at CASology this week, as well! (my above comment was for Muse). Way to be very efficient with that precious and rare crafting time!

  3. Hola tracy, great take for Muse, very original, i like it!!!!

    A warm hug from Palma de Mallorca Spain i hope see you soo!!!

  4. Two great Halloween cards and I love how you've taken the layout of my card and made it into something completely different. It's great to see you at Muse and thanks so much for taking the time out of your busy schedule and linking up with us. Hugs, Anita x

  5. I'm so glad you were able to carve out some crafting time for yourself :) Two really fun Halloween cards, Tracey! I love your zombie on the first one, and your witch is so cute on the 2nd card! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at Addicted to CAS!

  8. Fabulous cards and I do love the simplicity. Well done. Thank you for joining us over at Friday Mashup.

  9. Very fun cards! I love the antiqued look of them... great job! Thanks for joining the Friday Mashup this week.

  10. Great Halloween cards! Like you I don't really make them because I never send them to anyone, and I don't give them to my kid.

    No need to explain about your crafting! I think a lot of us can relate...I have 4 kids, 3 at home with 2 of them in high school plus I work full time on night shift. Some days I am just too tired to even catch my breath let alone stamp! I have a small selection of challenge blogs I like to play along with when I can but if I can't I don't stress, family comes first!

    Ok, enough of the book....thank you for taking the time to play along with us at The Friday Mashup!
