  20. I wish I had the creativity and artistic skills you must have in your little finger. You are amazing. Wow!! But, please tell me, where did you get the shiny green paper? It is just the spark the three cards you used it on needed. It is the little touches like that that make you so special. Amazing!!!Thank you for sharing with the rest of us. Tally

  22. Hi Tally. Thank you for your kind comments. The green shiny paper is fab, yes! Found a heavy roll of this fun heavy duty paper at a shopping plaza yard sale of all places. Only Paid $2 and it must still have well over a 100+ feet on it. I've been using this on almost everything this Halloween (LOL!). Thinking it might be good for bright Birthday cards, non-traditional Xmas designs and great to have for St. Patrick's Day crafts too! What I will do here (and since I have already had several peeps ask about this Shiny Green Paper), is ADD on some of that to my second Blog-CANDY with Charms and Chocolate! Thanks again for visiting and for your inquiry! :)

  65. An excellent card! The form is excellent, the colouring is excellent and the design is excellent. I love this stamp! The pumpkins are splendid. The idea of putting the motive into the frame is fabulous. Unfortunately, Halloween is not so popular in Germany.
