Mickey and Me Blog Hop!

Today we are celebrating a fellow crafter's birthday, along with Mickey Mouse's birthday! Rexann's birthday is today, November 19!  Mickey Mouse's birthday was yesterday, the 18th.  We have a great line up of bloggers for you that are all going to share projects relating to birthdays and Mickey Mouse.   These ladies are great crafters!  I hope you will join us for the hop and leave comments for everyone with your thoughts about their project!   The birthday girl is stop #5 so be sure to stop there!

I participated in a Recipe Swap and decided to make Mickey's Skor Bars and that is my post for today.

I used Sandylion Santa Mickey Paper and Michaels Recollections for the rest.

Created a Mickey Santa using Paper Dolls Dress up and Mickey and Friends.  I found making Mickey into a Santa far more challenging than I thought he would be!  I hope you like him!

The next stop on the Hop is Lead at My Craft and Chat Cafe

Today is Thanksgiving in Canada so in honour I decided to make a turkey card.  I cut the turkey from Animal Kingdom using Recollections paper by Michaels.

Put my turkey together, layering the feathers.  I added a few extra feathers.

Added some ribbon and leaves paper from the same Debbie Mum paper as yesterday.  Added a sentiment and voila!!!

I hope you like my card.

Seeing as Halloween is just around the corner I decided to make a Halloween card today for the Hop!

I used the Close to My Heart Witch from the Wicked set.  I stamped it on orange paper and embossed it with Stampendous Kaleidoscope embossing powder.

I then cut a frame from the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge.  I just opened it for this Hop and can tell it is going to be one of my favorites.  The frame is cut from MakingMemories Toil & Trouble paper pack.

I placed the frame on top of the witch image and raised it with pop dots.

I then cut a piece of paper from the Debbie Mumm - Harvest & Holiday paper pack for my background.  Pop doted my frame and witch to the background

I added some ribbon that I got at Michaels and a sentiment out of the same orange card stock!

And it's finished!  Here are some close up pics to show the detail

  I would love to hear your feedback!

In honour of this Blog Hop I have some blog candy!  A package of the paper I used for the frame and some embellishments.  In order to win you need to follow my blog and leave a comment under today's and tomorrow's posts.  I will use random org to choose on Sunday, October 16th.

Thanks for stopping by!!!!

New Camera

I decided to join the world of DSLR camera.,

I bought a Canon T3...

I was at my parents house the other day messing around with my camera.  They have a porcelain clown that sits on a wine rack wrought iron bike. This is the furthest back I took a picture...just to give you an idea of what he looks like.

The point of my post is that I took a close up shot of his face......I am amazed at the quality of the picture.  I have taken some good pics with my new camera but this one is by far my Favorite!

Father-in-Law's Birthday Card

My Husband asked me to make a card for my father in law for his birthday.

The golf cart is from Paper Dolls and the Grass is from Pooh,
