Breast cancer Awareness ATCs for a swap

***scroll down 2 posts for Halloween party post***

Hi everyone just sharing some ATCs, I hope you enjoy them. Breast cancer generally touching everyone, and I am no exception, my maternal grandmother died from it, my mom, is dealing with it, and my SIL is a survivor!!

here we go:

 All 6 for the swap
all images are from ALTERED PAGES
all digi stamps are from A DAY FOR DAISIES
German Scrap from COLLAGE STUFF
Card stock from STAMPIN' UP
Stickles by RANGER

I printed the digi images first on white card stock, and colored them in with markers by STAMPIN' UP, then also printed them on vellum, I glued the vellum over lay down on top of the colored image. With an extremely fine point marker by FABER-CASTELL I wrote "HOPE" and "BELIEVE" on the ribbons of the image. if that ATC had a ribbon that said "Hope" then on the ATC with a calligraphy tipped marker I wrote the other word..."Believe"  etc. 1

Challenge #11...THE GAME - Punch Buggy (late)

***Please scroll down for the Halloween party post***

Hello, sorry this is late. Once again things have been CRAZY around here, and I have had to pit and choice what and where to go with my computer time.

Saturday Ron went to the ER again, and was put in the CCU, his sugar was super high, he also had A-fib (from the sugar and apparently a BEYOND badly infected toe)
Thankfully, he is not Critical any longer, and is in the telemetry unit. BUT...they have to take the toe. It is the big toe on his bad we think the fall on the 19th (outside) perhaps he got a little something in his shoes, which started an irritation, and then his shuffling of that foot kind of on it's side when not in shoe and brace (bed time and in the am) for bathroom trips, most likely opened the irritation.   I saw both of his feet earlier that week, and they were red spots no sores no nothing.
They are going to do a cardiac work-up before the surgery.

So here is my 
The Game
This is an 8" X 10" piece that will be put in a shadow box frame, which will also be decorated.
Card stock from STAMPIN' UP
Printed paper by Dove Craft
most of the flowers are from ALTERED PAGES (and they are all PRIMA MARKETING and BAZZILL)
the pre made Yo-yo's are by  "On the Dot"
Reflective hearts are from Crafty Chica
Misc. buttons, beads, key, stickles (RANGER) charm, cufflink, net ribbon, bakers twine
Some close-ups

Halloween Party 2012 hosted by A Fanciful Twist

 be sure to visit all the parties!
Thanks for Hosting Vanessa!

Come with my Coven on Halloween

Welcome, Welcome!
come be seen
by my Coven
this Halloween.

We are all strange
we all be funny
fur and tails
and me, the mommy!

Only four be mine
but others join in
but only through bribery,
a treat they hope to win!

Enter now enter,
all beware
it's food they want
so they will stare.

Our Coven's home has
webs and dust
it's creepy, it's old
but that is a must.

There's nothing to fear
so hurry along
have treats handy
to ward off an awful song!

Time for the ritual meal

"Witches Stew"

Bubble, blubber, squirm and gloop,
Boiling broth of bat's tail soup.
Wobble, slobber, liquid goo,
Add the sole of one old shoe.
Spooky shadows dance around,
Of frogs and rats and snarling hounds.
Steam swirls rising to the roof,
Add one small ear and one old tooth.
Gnarly, scratchy, tickle and itch,
Stir round and round to make it rich.
Mushy, sticky, sizzle and stew,
They're making mischief just for you!

After our Samhain/All Hollow's Eve 
ritual and meal...
 **{one lucky commentor(that is a follower) will win this ATC, along with another surprise ATC or 2}

We always have a story...

© 2008

Hear ye, hear ye, all and sundry
hearken to my tale of woe,
here I stand, all groanie-moanie
dealt a bitter witch's blow.

There was I, a golden oldie,
wifey, son and daughters two,
simple life all cuddly-wuddly,
enemies were far and few.

Then last Apple-blossom Sunday
in the woods to gather fruit,
youngest daughter, lucky ducky,
finds a ring beside a root.

Back at home for munchie-wunchie
daughter's ring her finger fits,
dances round with hokey-pokey,
loves that ring to dong-dang bits.

Door bursts open - bitchy witchy!
Says we stole her magic ring,
daughter's heart goes achey-breaky
wicked witch begins to sing:

"Eye of newt and toadie-woadie,
spider's blood and mad dog's mange,
conjure with me, creepy-crawlie,
make these thieving children change!"

Next day early, wakey-wakey,
feels just like a nasty dream,
at the table, brekky-wekky,
daughter Minnie starts to scream.

Slowly she goes shrinky-winkie.
ring falls off and rolls away,
thinner daughter - holy-moley!
I don't quite know what to say.

Daughter Dawn is snoozy-woozy,
can't quite get her brain awake,
great idea from Mumsey-wumsie,
gives her coffee-flavored cake.

Brother Bill is mamby-pambie,
laughs aloud at nothing there,
sees my face, gets giggly-wiggly,
sits there laughing in his chair.

Wife blames me, gets snarly-warly,
spell has gone straight to her head,
grabs a knife, goes swishy-wishy,
I run out before I'm dead.

Now my life is topsy-turvey,
knifey-wifey's gone insane,
sits and stares all airy-fairy
says that spiders eat her brain.

Yawnie Dawnie's sleepy-weepy,
Silly Billy thinks it's fun,
Skinny Minnie's teensy-weensy,
can't you help me - anyone? 

{This was NOT the party I had planned, sadly time, finances and transportation were not on my side. so I did all this between 5:30 am and 7:50 am EST.  I HOPE you all enjoyed yourselves :) }
