Here are a couple more MDS Halloween cards I designed. I just did the one with the photo today after seeing that photo of a spider a friend posted on Facebook. Anyone know anything about that type of spider? She thinks it bit her! It is such a cool picture I had to use it on a Halloween card.

I love that the spider is almost camouflaged in the center of this photo; can you find it? The background is actually two layers - Textured Pumpkin Pie on the bottom, with a page layer of lowered opacity, recolored (green to orange) Frightful Sight DSP over it. A couple of stamps: splatter and "eeek!" and ripping the top and bottom edges of the photo (digital ripping, of course!)

More fun with the Witches' Brew DSP! "Spooky" is a stampbrush image, and "Times" I typed as text with a similar font. The bats are part of the DSP, but the splatters and spider web are stamps. The background is Night and Day DSP.

So, I have not been able to stamp, digi-create or post lately. I am still in California (as previously posted I will be until 10/23) and this week a cousin and a good friend of my Mom and me are here too. Today we all went on a "Mystery Tour" which ended up being to some cool historic spots in downtown L.A. - and on our way home the last stop was to "Donut Friend" where unusual donuts are created. We were served one of the specialties called "Jets to Basil" which is a split donut spread with goat cheese, strawberry jam and some fresh basil, sugar glazed and drizzled with a balsamic reduction. It was CRAZY GOOD! I was already stuffed from our buffet lunch at the famous Biltmore Hotel (we are talking jumbo shrimp, crab legs, chilean sea bass, just to mention a few of the items and not even start on the desserts!). I did not take a photo of my donut because I was too busy eating it, but got this photo of the same one on the internet:
I can't give you one of these donuts, but you can enter to win some blog candy on my "Holiday Catalog Inspirations" page, and also the big blog-hop treasure hunt is still on - US residents can win $150 in Stampin' Up! products! Visit the Treasure Hunt page for details, then search for my CLUE post!

I am so excited to at long last have launched my "Boutique and Custom Made Creations" page! This is where I will post items for sale including cards & other things I have made as well as retired products inc. stamps.
I also offer many services including creating custom items for you.
To launch my new page I started with posting all the ovarian and breast cancer awareness cards I created with My Digital Studio. These are shown as they appear upon printing, however some have the option to have some glitz or bling added.
I will keep adding items to this page (and pinning them to my Pinterest boards). I'll post a notice when I add something so my email followers will get a heads up, as it appears you don't get any notice if I add to or edit a page. 
Please visit my Boutique and leave me a comment!
