31 Days of Halloween - Day 25

I'm reading on the blogs a bit of sadness that the 31 Days are nearly over and how many ideas are still floating around in your heads. My theory is that while you are creating the ideas just flow and while you are sitting around trying to think of something to do, forget it. My solution when October comes to a close will be to take notes on some of the better ideas, put them where maybe I can find them again, and then move on!

Boy, you just can't plan anything on Blogger, can you? The Family Tree is kind of a big project, like 7 x 9 and the other one is regular card size. I made these after I discovered the October Challenges on S&S. The Family Tree uses lids -these are canning lids - so I guess that would be the JUNK FUNK challenge and I used the card sketch from the VERY SKETCHY challenge for the Spell On You card . Stamps are Inkadinkado webs and swirls and tree, Zettiology alphabet and dots from Stamps by Judith.

Thanks for all of the really warm and complimentary comments about the witch houses! They really make my day!! I have a few more but thought it was time for a break from them.

We have been playing with our new stuff in the studio - I am (and always have been) slow as molasses in January but my friend Pam is a graphic designer and her skills are evident. I'm trying to get her to post some of her great Halloween stuff on S&S.

LOVE both of these thanks for the idea to use canning lids!! I didn't think of that.
I do not have a side cutting can opener, so I wasn't about to use a can lid with sharp edges...but I have ball lids coming out my patooty! (haven't canned in a dog's age ---sad)

yes please get your friend involved :)
