Amazingly Cute Halloween Cards

Click the pic' to see all the wonderful detail

Aren't they adorable?  My great friend [and Wallene's adopted Grandma] Teresa, The Middle Side of Life, has quite the talent for making cards.  She has gifted us with a few over the past year and I treasure them as the little works of art that they are.  She has tried to inspire me in making them, but, alas I do not possess the vision nor the skills. [Or the working fingers for that matter.]  Even the envelopes are handmade!

What's a girl to do when she wants something unique to send to friends and family but can't do it herself?  Why she turns to her buddy!  I saw some of Teresa's work on her scrapbooking blog  and asked if she could make me a set to send to my family.  She happily agreed and designed these 4 beauties just for me.  I also saw a Thanksgiving card that I loved and she is going to make me a set of 8 of those to share with friends this holiday season.

All this wonderfulness for such a great price!  So happy!

Now if I can just convince her to design and make my Christmas cards.  Hmmmmm.....

I will definitely check out her sight. Thanks for bringing her to our attention. One thing I do not have is artistic talent. I can do crafts but not from scratch.

You are too kind - but I'll take the compliments ! Thanks!!! I can't wait for you to see them in person. The top right card has a couple of little things at the bottom of the card that the lower right card is hiding.

These envelopes are only partially hand-made. I cheated and just lined existing envelopes.

Very cute! I am just back from an evening of making cards with some friends. We get together about once a month and make cards.

It's great that Teresa was able to help you out...that's what friends are for, of course!

I tried to get into scrapbooking. I actually desire to do it. But it appears this requires some especially ehanced, talented DNA that I do NOT possess. Bummer.

(nice cards!)
