I was originally suppose to spend the weekend with my parents to celebrate my Dad's birthday but I wanted to give him a gift but not this nasty cold, the gift that just keeps on giving. LOL! Happy Birthday Dad!! My heart and thoughts are with you! Edited to include: I just went to call my Dad for his birthday and found out he is in the hospital this morning. He was taken by ambulance last night after visiting the doctor. This week seems to be getting better and better...He is going to be o.k. but please pray for him. What a way to spend his birthday!

Now for today's challenge.....
*For this week's challenge, we would like to see you "MAKE A SCENE!" (No, not that type of scene!) Use your rubber stamps, digital images, die cuts, stickers, photos or anything that tickles your fancy and create a scenery type project with it! You can ALWAYS make something else besides a card for these challenges! Try a scrapbook page, 3-D item or ATC! Just have fun & let's see you make a scene!!*
Since it is almost Halloween, I thought it would be fun to make a Halloween type card with Halloween colors. The images I used are from CC Designs. They are so sweet!! The lace I use in the background I won from Stephanie's blog candy. I just thought it would go perfect with the Halloween Designer paper. For some reason the branches that I embossed on the white background with the Leaves embossing folder is not showing up in the picture.
Here is my creation:
For more inspiration for this challenge, you really have to check out the awesome creations of my dt sisters as well as our guest designer Holly Young - (Guest Designer & Squigglefly Supporter Extraordinnaire) You will be so inspired by all these creations!! They are fabulous!

Since the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge has begun, I have not missed one of their challenges and I was so afraid I would not be able to complete a card for this week with how I have been feeling.
Kathy chose the scripture Jeremiah 1:5 "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you..." (NIV)
"Each of us is chosen by God, too, for a special purpose. He knows us intimately, and He wants us to know Him intimately. Each of us has special gifts and talents that we need to share with others. When we do this, we truly experience the heart of God. And what a tremendous feeling that is!"
Kathy's challenge "The challenge is to make a baby card or project, or a card for an expectant mother (or expectant parents). A baby shower card would be perfectly fine, too. I think you get the idea!"
This has got to be one of the quickest cards I have made, incorporating yesterday LSC242- Half done challenge (to use a premade or preprinted card as the base). I use a pre-embossed card from Die Cuts with a View. The image is House Mouse A Beary Special Friend-Monica. I colored the image with copics and did the background with chalks my daughter insisted I use ( she bought a few for me for my birthday and was eager to have me use them)
I added a scallop with my Moraccan Lace punch from EK Success (in keeping with the Creative Card Crew Challenge). The sentiment is from Our Daily Bread Designs- Children of God. Added some silver baubles and ribbon and I am done! I plan to send this to my niece who just had a baby boy. (I can't believe I am a great Aunt. My husband's brothers are 10 years older than him and 4 of them are married or having children. Yikes! Time flies! We have 2 more grandnieces or nephews coming in the next 2 months!)
Thanks so much for stopping by and for all your comments!! I hope you enjoyed my creations and that you are enjoying your weekend. I especially hope you have time to create!!
