Glad to see you!

Art Impressions has some of the best people and critter images. And I love their front & back stamps! For this eager pup, I added a mini wobble to the image on the inside of the card, so that his little bottom matches the sentiment. (In case you can't read it, the inside reads, "But it can't wiggle it's butt when you walk in the door!" I found the sentiment in a meme somewhere. Don't remember where.)
I feared the mini wobble would be too thick on the inside of the card, but it works great. Actually, his whole body wiggles a bit... just like our dog in real life!

Last week I made one of these Bugaboo ghosts out of vellum and like the results. (I also won a prize… so got more fun Bugaboo images that you'll see in the near future!)
For this card, I made another vellum ghost, but this one is bigger. And I added a surprise element on the inside of the card. It will be sent to my MIL that love to share them with others in the assisted living facility. Figured that all those wonderful great-grandmas will like this bright and interactive card! 
Note- the sentiment reads, "Hello foolish mortal. If you are reading this..." (inside) "... then you are blissfully unaware of what is creeping up behind you! Happy Halloween." 
Also, once again, I used TCL 's sweet little digi "Eeek!"

Have always loved this Eureka cat image, especially when paired with an old (and I mean OLD) Azadi Earles pumpkin image. The inside sentiment is handwritten. And, decided to add a major pop of color by mounting the entire card onto the front of an upcycled greeting card. (There is a rainbow spotted leopard under there!)

Christmas Cards All Year Round current challenge is to make a Monochromatic Brown card. It was much harder than I had imagined. I ended up adding a strip of antiqued lace, brown grosgrain ribbon, and a golden LOVE brad to add a bit of contrast and sparkle. It still looked too blah for me, so I used a Q-tip to add just a smidgen of blue and fuchsia to Mary's veil and gown. That tiny bit of color might disqualify my card, but it really finishes it off for me. The inside sentiment is pure scripture!
