Another Halloween card!

This is a new Halloween card. I have done a few this past week. Some are just cute, A couple I did with skulls, I don't think I like them though. I am not a person who likes spooky stuff. I don't watch gore, or spooky stuff on TV, or videos. So these cards are way out of my comfort zone. I do find the cute ones cute however. I also think even cards with witches and ghosts and even ghouls can be cute too.

Anyway here is the card and as usual I will post the challenges at the end of this post. Which I probably will do tomorrow, we are moving things into our new room today and tomorrow. But I thought I would put up the card now.  I hope you all like it.

Please know how grateful I am to each and everyone of you that entered my giveaway. I will be doing in a day or so, to find out which of my wonderful friends have won!!

So again here's the card.      

Here are the challenges I am putting this card in this week.

Party Time Ch.#39- Anything Goes
Die Cuttin Divas Ch.# 38- Halloween Colors

Some pictures of Kyce!

My dear friend Lisa @A Mermaid's Crafts,  has asked to see some new pictures of my brand new grandson Kyce. There are other pictures from when he was born on my blog. These are just a couple from this last week. He has really grown! He is over 9 lbs. He is a wonderful baby. He is starting to really smile now, and is just so darn sweet. He loves to cuddle, and be real close.  Well enough of  Nanny's rantings, here are his pictures especially for Lisa.

Isn't he awesome!!!!!

Link Up Love Party With K Andrew!!

 It's time  for another Link Up Love Party With K Andrew. The Link Up the Love Party is a wonderful way to meet new bloggers and find inspiration from some truly amazing crafters!
Link Up Love Party: How it Works
  • Link Up Party runs from Tuesday 10/18 to Tuesday 10/25.
  • Grab the Getting Cricky blinky and post on your blog's sidebar
  • Be a follower of Getting Cricky
  • Create a new blog post that is titled Link Up Love Party with K Andrew. In your post, you must mention that the link up love party is a way to get to know each other and find new blog inspiration, mention my blog, with a link back to Getting Cricky
  • Post your favorite project that you've done in your blog for HALLOWEEN
  • Copy and paste the link up code into your blog post so the Inlinkz will show up on your blog
  • Spread the word so everyone can join in!
  • You must visit, follow, and comment on the 5 people before you AND the 5 people after you in the Inlinkz. It would be fantastic if you would visit as many as you can--maybe everyone? If you are one of the first 5 then you will need to blog the ones before you and a few more after--as long as it's a minimum of 10 near you in the link up
  • If you do not do the above your link will be deleted, because it's just not fair to those who work so hard linking up and showing love to the ones on the list. I have two moderators who will be checking this out to keep it awesome and fun! 
 Here is my favorite Halloween project I have done at least so far.

For some reason I can't post the  InLinkz code, please go to getting cricky for the code.

A Giveaway for my Friends!!

When I started this blog I didn't think anyone would be interested in what I said or made. To my wonderful surprise, there are some wonderful ladies out there that have. I have some of the most wonderful followers!

 There are so many of you that visit on a regular basis, and have been with me from the beginning. You all mean the world to me:)) Most of you know I have a host of health problems, I live with chronic pain, and some days are very much worse than others. Every time I open my blog up, there are sweet, encouraging comments from some of you. And my day gets brighter!! Many of you pray for me, and you will never know how much I appreciate and covet your prayers. Believe me they help too.

I decided to do a little something for all of you. This is a BIG thank you to each and every one of you, for being the best blog friends out there. Everyone of you are just amazing in your own unique ways. I just want to say thank you for being so sweet!!

There is a little of a few things. A 12x12 Paper pad, a few sheets of another K & Co pad, that I have, that the paper feels like material, kinda cool. Glitter flowers, and paper flowers, Sizzix dies, some wobbles, and a wobbles chat!, cuttlebug die, and some ribbon. I might throw in something else too, as a surprise!

All you have to do is:

1.)  Be a follower!

2.) Leave a comment on this post with your blog address or email or both. If you are new and you leave your blog I will do my best to come and follow you too!

3.) For an additional chance, tell your friends for me. Post this in a blog, or put it on your sidebar with a link to my blog, then come back and leave another comment telling me you did and a link to your post.(just copy and paste the picture of the candy into your gadgets, under pictures, I tried to do the code thing, but couldn't do it.) My Friend Amy @ Love to Crop tried to help me, but alas dumb won out! She's wonderful and has a super blog, you should visit her!! I left you her link.

The giveaway will be open until  midnight October 25th. I'll use to pick the winner between October 26th -- October 28th. (You all know how I need extra time, ha ha!) Due to the cost of postage, this giveaway is not open to my international friends. But I want you all to know how much I appreciate you.

Well that's it! Thank you all for being such wonderful friends, and blog buddies. I appreciate every one of you:)) more than you will ever really know! I wish I could do this for each of you.

Hugs, and good luck, Pam
