A card for a friend!

I have friend that is going thru some family issues and needed to make a card for her!  I love this cute  rubber stamp from Karber and take advantage of the wonderful Karber challenge #50 today.  I have also used a sketch by Carly!  I just love Carly's sketches.

The Karber challenge was to make a card with your favorite embellishment and a Karber image!  She also has some wonderful digi stamps too!  My favorite embellishment that I used was ribbon and bling!
And here is Carly's sketch that I used!

Welcome to Scrap Happens ~ Embellish It's 2nd Blogoversary Blog Hop!

You should have arrived from  Maria's  blog but if you have just stumbled upon my blog, click here to start from the beginning.
This hop is an ANYTHING GOES hop and there are so many different craft projects to see along the way.

Here is my first project, it is a altered paper mache house.  The top comes off so that you can put a light inside.  I have had this for awhile and wanted to make into a haunted house!  I used halloween cupcake liners for the roof.  I painted it purple & black first, then covered in in pattern paper!   I think it came out super cute!
The Roof
A brighter version of it, with the ghost!

 And my next project is a "Mini Tag Album" with most of my kids Halloween costumes.  I need to add a few more pics to it, but I think it came out cute.  Some of the embellishments I received were from a swap in a cafemom group.
Make sure you comment and follow everyone on the hop so that you get a chance to win some candy!  I will also pick a  random winner for some "surprise" candy.  In order to win the candy you will need to comment on this post and also become a follower, I would love to have more bloggy friends:)

Your next stop on the hop is Robin.
