Hallowe'en in Wonderland card


Hi everyone!

I haven't been feeling very "creative" lately. But I exchanged a few messages with a fellow YouTuber recently and had offered to send off some goodies... and you can't send off goodies without a little hand-made "something." So I decided to clear off the cob-webs from my scrapdesk and create a card. :-) I first want to say how inspired I am by many of you out there in YouTube and Blogger-land and it brings joy to my heart knowing what a caring and tight-knit community of scrappers we have out there. So thank you, each of you, for bringing that little "something" to my day when you comment, send me a message or just share your creativity on YT and blogger. :-) That said, let's move on to the card! :-)

I made this card using 120lb kraft cardstock, G45's Hallowe'en in Wonderland paper collection, flowers from iamroses.com, Tim Holz hardware from his Idealogy line, Prima Say it in Pearls bling and GORGEOUS lace/sequin from A Treasure's Nest. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!

hugs,
Arlene

Every blog I visit, is so much fun, for they are all a little bit different in their own way and very unique in their own right. It's such a pleasure to go blogging. Thank you for letting me visit.

You sure do a fantastic job when you are not feeling creative! :-) Love the card! I am trying to figure out what I am going to do on my Christmas Cards, I want to use what I have already and not make it bulky so I don't have to use more than one stamp. Pretty tough for me, I want to use flowers!!! :-)

Hi Arlene,

Is it possible to miss someone you don't even know? LOL!

Not really into Halloween, but I must say your card is absolutely beautiful! I agree with your other posters, you are one of the most talented crafters out there and I have learned so much from you. You are truly inspiring and I hope that you are enjoying your time off from crafting but also that you do get your mojo back soon....ok, I am being selfish. :) I do miss your posts but you do have plenty out there to continue inspiring us for many months to come.

Thank you for all that you do.

Hi Arlene,
Wanted to send you a mini page. I've been thinking of you and Bona almost everyday and how much you both have inspired me to do better things. I love how you create wonderful things out of trims, blings and paper. Wish I had room for all of those swaps I have received.
Please say hi to Bona. I am praying for her and hoping all is getting better. I felt very very sad for her situation and I can relate in so many levels. My hubby wants me to curtail my time on YT.
Hope all is well with you and your family. Again thanks for all the inspirations you have given me.
With much love and appreciation,
Leonie

Hi Arlene,
Just wanted to say that I've been watching your YouTube videos. I love your work and love your blog. I just started a blog and have so much to learn. I've been stamping and crafting for 27 years now and there is always something new to learn.
