Mischief & Mayhem

Happy Friday my fellow bloggers, and welcome to another Cardz TV Stamps challenge with the Go To Galz.  This week we're all about Ghosts and Goblins as we eek a bit closer to Halloween.  And I have to tell ya that our ladies created some really awesome projects this week that you will not want to miss!
As you can see I created a card for my project.  And while it was an easy put together I think it packs a nice little punch for Halloween.
I used Gypsy Wanderings for my skeleton head.
For the rosette I cut two strips of 2 1/2" x 12" paper and scored at every 1/4 inch.  I then worked my myriad of folds, joined the ends , fluffed it up and realized I made too large a rosette.  So I gently cut across a couple of my folds and removed a section of paper, rejoined my ends and tried again.  This time it was the perfect size so I cut a couple of squares to hold my centers in place, glued them down and placed a book on top to hold it all in place. 

Once that was done I added my background paper - My Mind's Eye Halloween Scary Sparkles mat stack.  Oh and lest I forget my rosette was made using a printed paper from 2007 called Orange Skeletons from Masterpiece Studios. 
The stamped sentiment is from the newly released stamp set "Trick or Treat".

Monster Hat

Since we had a lot of rain come down this past weekend I decided to stay in and play with my loom knitting.  Not only did this allow me to get a good bit done in preparation for the upcoming show later this month but it also gave me an opportunity to play with a new pattern.

This adorable monster hat is a freebie pattern I found over at Knitting Rays of Hope and while her hat definitely looks better than mine I think this one isn't too shabby for a first attempt.  I will admit to changing up the 'horns' a bit tho. 
When I have some more free time I think I'll have to try another one. 

U R Amazing - Breast Cancer Awareness Challenge

Happy Friday everyone.  As I begin this post we are keeping a close eye on the weather as our area is currently under a Hurricane Watch AND I just noticed this morning that Jim Cantori is in Pensacola.  Guess there will be at least a little bit of excitement to the weekend after all.
Speaking of excitement we have another installment of Cardz TV Stamps challenges today.  Today our Go to Galz created cards and projects for Breast Cancer Awareness.  With that said if you have not yet had your mammogram this year it's time to get one scheduled.  I know they're no fun but we have to do what we have to do to protect ourselves and I'll be doing mine next week.
Now on to my project,  as you can see I created a card for mine.  For this card I used the following cartridges:
George -  to design the bust from a collection of circles, ovals and some other shape all welded together. 
Life's A Beach - I cut out the bikini top, removed the straps and used ribbon for them instead. I then embossed the cut and viola it's a pretty bra. 
Stand and Salute - for the ribbon.
My sentiment is from the Cardz TV Stamps set titled "This N That".
My printed papers are all from the Me and My Big Ideas Breast Cancer Awareness mat stack. 
And now that you've seen my project for this week - let's see what you create.  After you make your project be sure to link up and play along with us so we can all ooh and aah over your creations too.
