Sentimental Sundays–Halloween

It’s Sunday so it is time for another Sentimental Sundays challenge. The theme for our challenge this week is “Halloween” – don’t forget to include a sentiment.

The challenge sponsor, Whimsie Doodles, was kind enough to give the DT some images to use for the challenge. When I saw this image, I wanted to try to make a shaped card.

Stop by the Sentimental Sundays blog to see the creations from the rest of the DT. Link up your card for a chance to win the prize from Whimsie Doodles.

This challenge is a bit sad for me as it will be my last challenge as a member of the Sentimental Sundays team. The DT is a wonderful group of ladies and I have really enjoyed working with them.

Thank you for stopping by!

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Just make a project that includes the color green and come join our party at the Catered Crop.For my project, I dug out a photo of of our sweet Summer was taken about a year ago.   Although I have been pretty lax about scrapbooking the last few years, I really wanted to make sure I created a page with this photo for my daughter’s scrap book.   We lost Summer, who was a member of our family for almost 15 years, in February so this page seemed especially important to me.After finding some paper that used a lot of green in it, I used lots of various odds and ends that I found in my craft room.  I mixed various stickers and die cuts from other projects to create this page.  As always, Linda has curated a fabulous Pinterest board to get our create mojo working.  (Don’t you just love her boards?)    You can go directly to Linda’s “Green”board by cl…
