Surviving the Hurricane!

Good Afternoon Everyone,

Hope all my east coast neighbors are surviving the hurricane. We are pretty good so far, still have our power not too much water just a whole lot of wind. But work and school has been cancelled all around so everyone is home with me today which is nice.

So before I show you what I have been crafting I wanted to share a Halloween Picture with you. My husband and I went to a Halloween Fundraiser party dressed as a flapper and a gangster. I thought we looked good!

It was a lot of fun. It is always fun to dress up. Hope you have a little laugh at this!

As for my card today, I colored sweet Tilda with copics. I used a sparkle glitter paper in the background, added Stickles to her hat and coat trim. Some more Stickles on the snow and some shimmer spray on the white paper. You cannot see it well in the picture but it sparkles and shimmers!

I am entering this in the following challenges:

One Stitch at a Time:  Make 1 for Christmas
Dream Valley Challenges:  Glitter and Bling
Robyns Fetish Challenge: Use and Embossing Folder, (the snowflake background)
Craft Pad: Christmas is Coming
Magnolia Down Under challenge:  Birthstone (September My sister's month)

Thanks for stopping by and stay dry and safe!

Hi Kim, fab piccie! Love the outfits. Y'know I never really thought about where you live (apart from America and you've got a craft room I envy!!!) or that you might be affected by the hurricane. What a bad bloggy friend I am!!

Glad to hear you weren't too badly affected and on the upside it must be nice to have your family home with you.

Gorgeous card as well, really cute image and the sparkles work perfectly.

Keep safe
