BOO!! Hee Hee Hee!!

Oh boy - it is Hallowe'en tomorrow night and I just now have finished my treat bags for my grandchildren - yikes!

We have three grandchildren - but I made four bags because there will be someone - probably me - who needs to have a big bag of treats....

I am linking this up with this week's Fusion Challenge - {Something Wicked This Way Comes....or Not}  I decided to be inspired by the photo - although there is a great sketch that is available to use also!

Here is the fabulous inspiration!

Lots of goody -ness to see today.....HAH!!  Strange what a simple Kraft bag can do if you just throw on some pretty  papers :)

I used Waltzingmouse Stamps, Papertrey Ink cardstock and patterned paper and beautiful checkered ribbon from the Stamp Simply Store - I have yards and yards of that beautiful prettiness!!

Lots of fun - be very careful out there tomorrow night! but have fun!

Sunshine and Smiles

Good morning!

I found a new challenge - and it incorporates my favorite things - DIES!!

The Cutting Edge Challenge brings everything I love about cardmaking together - stamps, dies - interpretation - perfect!

This week's inspiration is a beautiful creation from Kay Miller - full of colour and die cuts!

I recently had some L'il Inker product delivered to my home and I could not wait to use them - and they are perfect for this challenge.

Using the Sunshine die and the Rainbows and Clouds die set, along with the perfect matching sentiments - Sun Sentiments, I focused on the beautiful colours Kay used in her card and managed to create something kind of cute!

 My paper is from Fancy Pants True Friend - the hearts are so sweet!

Today is a bookkeeping day for the I am going to tackle that today - ugh - I need all the Sunshine and Smiles I can get haha!

Happy Days

Hey there! Another Color Throwndown post today.....

This week's very inspirational color swatch is a great one as per usual!

These colours - minus the gorgeous soft green - really reminded me of Candy Corn - and I really wanted to do that sort of thing but it didn't work out so much - every have that happen haha?!

I still stayed with the Horizontal Stitched Strips from My Favorite Things - always a winner in my book.

I stamped and die cut some Meadow Greens and then using the Papertrey Ink Tag #5 - I only die cut half of the tag leaving a space for my sentiment.

I love this Book Club Stamp set - so very inspirational in itself!

Try out the Color Throwdown - but I think I am just skipping in at the last minute for this week -yikes!
