Happy October! Today I have a couple of very different projects to share. First up is a rather clean and simple Halloween card featuring a combination of PTI stamps from the Spooky Sweets 11 stamp set along with Tim Holtz Halloween themed patterned paper:

For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge:
 and for theme inspiration, I joined along with The Paper Players challenge:
Up next are my two different attempts to paint poppies on 12" x 12" canvas panels as I followed along with Nancy Medina's Poppies video tutorial. Practice, practice, practice...

I'm joining along with this week's Paint Party Friday site:
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Be Sweet ;)

We don't really "get" the whole Halloween thing here in Australia, but I can still admire your cute card. It could be used for many occasions, especially like the background paper you've used. As for the Poppies! Wow, they look stunning.
