Halloween for the Grandkids!

Hi friends...phew...I have just finished making 5 for each of our 5 grandchildren. Talk about a marathon craft-fest! You may remember that I was planning to take some Magnolia images and my Tim Holtz distress inks with me on vacation so that I could practice a bit. they are. Don't ask me what colors I used because I honestly didn't write them down...I was on vacay, after all! LOL! I used a variety of Halloween DPs as well...I mixed and matched Martha Stewart, Recollections, Cosmo Cricket, and Basic Grey DPs. I also used cardstock from Stampin Up. Then I added charms, rhinestone swirls, raffia lace, prima flowers, various ribbons, tulle, and a bit of Viva Pearl Pen. Of course I used a healthy helping of Crystal Stickles...and the spider web punch (by MS). I had such fun making these...and I must say, I'm pretty pleased with the take a breath, grab yourself an adult beverage, and put your feet up...because this could very well be the longest post in the history of blogdom!!

This first card is for our oldest granddaughter, Emma. She's 11 and in 6th grade. But she still loves halloween! Emma's at that in-between age. You know...between little kid and teenager. We have such fun together. She's my best friend!!!

This one is for her sister, Sophia, who will be 5 in December. Soph likes getting cards...her mom told me that she's been known to draw noses and mouths on the Tilda's I've sent her! hehehe!

This little sweetie is for our sweet little Ava who is 6 and in 1st grade. Her favorite color is...ta da...ORANGE!! I think she'll like this little Tilda.

Here's a cute little Tilda "devil" for our darling little Mia. Mia will be 4 in December...and she is single-handedly giving her parents lots and lots of grey hair!! I find her antics to be completely entertaining. Oh...and her fave outfits are anything that include a tutu!!!

And finally, this last little for our one and only grandson, Brody. Brody is 6 years old and is in 1st grade. He is cute and funny and is absolutely his father's mini-me!! Brody loves Halloween as much as his dad! So, there you go...5 cards for 5 incredible kids! (Can you tell that I am completely in love with our grandkids?!!) Thank you all for stopping by to visit...and, as always, thanks for your comments. You're so good for my ego!! I'll be back soon...I have several projects in the works...but next time I promise not to be so long-winded!! Have a beautiful evening/day. See you soon...Pat
