Halloween Costume?

I found these spiders in my yard - they are almost always white, but you can see one was bright orange! I could only wonder if it had ask itself - should I dress up as a ghost, no that's what I always look like - think I'll be a jack-o-lantern this year!

Hope everyone has a sweet, but spooky holiday!

Halloween Treats

Before I get too carried away with my Christmas cards, I wanted to share this adorable little double sided box I made for Halloween treats. One one side there's a little bag of candy corn and the other a single stamp and black stampin' spot. I made this with the box #2 die (114518 - pg. 201). I cut two boxes - one basic black, one only orange and then without folding down the tops I glued them together. I punched a hole for the handle with the small oval punch(107304 pg. 186) and tied pieces of basic black and only orange 1/4 inch grosgrain ribbon for added decoration. I stamped the front pieces using the candy corn and trick or treat stamps from the set Tasty Sweet. I made the filler using only orange and basic black scraps - running them through the crimper.

I really love my Big Shot (pg. 194 - IBC) the boxes and other gift items are endless! If you don't have a demonstrator and are interested in information on the Big Shot, shoot me an email and we'll get you all set up. You will wonder how you ever crafted without it!

Supplies: Paper - Basic Black, Only Orange, Whisper White; Big Shot and #2 Box Die; Small Oval Punch; Ribbon - Only Orange & Basic Black 1/4" grosgrain; Stamp Set - Tasty Sweet.

Christmas Cards

Six of us have met every month to make Christmas cards (there have been a few exceptions due to illness, travel or work), but most have been able to be faithful every month and I was posting my cards here every month, but have fallen way behind - so this week I will try to catch up. This is one of my favorites (the next one will be one of my favorites too, LOL) - hope you enjoy it! I am posting the front and two other views so you can see how it folds. I love this card and you will see one more in another day or two!

I love making this trifold card. I used the flocked design from the Christmas Cocoa Specialty paper - you can see all of the available designs on page 21 of the holiday mini catalog. The stamp set is one of my favorites Christ is Born, pg. 37 in the 2009-2010 IBC.

I have used this card design for several different Christmas cards and some birthday cards - more coming in the next few days

Papaya Season

I know I've been out of pocket for some time, but I just bet you didn't know it was Papaya season! Yes, I've been out in my yard harvesting papaya - wish you were here to share! It's been a bumper crop for sure, I even needed a ladder to reach them all!
