Maybe it's because I went to the eye doctor this week and had my eyes dilated that I have another eyeball card for Halloween.  This is another image from TLC, Create that comes from a great set.  Since I have blue eyes and I have Siamese cats that also have blue eyes I went with that.

Autumn Apples

I made this card using the Stamp of the Month From the Heart.  I colored it with my copics and then added some white cloud die cuts.  The sentiment is from TLC, with a couple of apple die cuts put on pop dots.  I kept the card simple which is the twist for this week.  I made this an easel card.
This is the only time of year that I buy caramel dipping sauce for my apples, yum.

There's a little cowboy in all of us

This image comes from the new kit at Imagine That! Digis by Kris which is an adorable mix of western and carnival.  I used 3 images and 2 papers and a sentiment from TLC.  I put the image on a die cut and have it so that it stands up.  I outlined the star with Pearl Accents.
