Good Morning & Happy Sunday.....

To you all....I hope this morning finds you happy and healthy!!! It is a BEAUTIFUL day in my little town and the sun is shining brightly....there's a nice breeze going....I have the windows open in my ARTHaven and I am truly enjoying this morning!!!!  Praise to the Lord for blessing us with this day...right!!?  YES Indeed!!!!

So...Friday after work I decided it was time to treat myself to a little shopping therapy at Hobby Lobby & Michael's before traveling across the bridge to my little town......a few goodies just managed to JUMP into my cart...and I just was not able to resist!! ;)  Don't you just love it when that happens.....who was I to tell them they couldn't come home with me......so home they came!!

While shopping I decided that I would like to start making some Halloween and Christmas themed cards.......so that's what I geared my shopping towards.....I already had some goodies at home....but just love adding to my stash.....I think that's a big part of our addiction!!!  That's the story I'm sticking to anyway!  So Friday evening I came up to my ARTHaven and went through all my stamps and papers and pulled out what I have that is Halloween and Christmas themed.....realized I have WAY more Christmas...which is just perfect for this gal!  But decided I would start off my creating with a Halloween card......OK...so here I go just trying to think up something in my brain.....

The group I own....The Creative Corner on Yahoo recently had a Gatefold card swap......I really enjoy the look of the gatefold on a card....so that's what I decided to go with......and then the idea popped into my peabrain...well...Penny....why not make a GATE Gatefold card...LOL and the ideas just went from there!!!  ROFL....So...Here's what I came up with.....


Isn't it adorable!!!! ;)  If I must say so myself.....so I worked up a video walking you through exactly how I made and put the card together....you can see it here....


Here's the still photos of some different angles of the card if you would like to see....





And...as I shared in the video I have listed the 2 files I created to make this card in MY ETSY Store which you can see the links below.....


Okie Dokie....That catches me up for this morning!!! I really hope you enjoyed the happy card  I shared....Would LOVE to hear your input and thoughts......I would like to THANK YOU so much for taking a bit of your day to come by and visit me......I do so hope you will come by again!!! Until next time....
