Witching you a Happy Halloween

Another Halloween card today. This one uses the new Spooky Sweets Two set from PTI! What a great set to create just about anything with! All those kids treats for school, cards, tags you name it! We're off her shortly to see a new family member. Our niece had a baby last night! I get to snuggle with babies every night at work, but when it is's different!!

Rustic Peace

By now many of you have seen Piney's stamp set "Rustic Branches" that she created for Papertrey Ink. I contemplated for a long time not to use the set and leave it in the autographed box!! LOL! I thought...would Pine want me to do that?!?! HECK NO!! She'd want to see what everyone was up to with her first stamp set. So "Rustic Branches" is no longer clean!! Such a fun set to work with. So Pine!! Love it Piney! Congrats again!

Twilight Anyone?

"Do I dazzle you?" Has to be my favorite quote from the book. Last week during the computer outage thing, I started reading a new to me book series. After much encouragement, I picked up Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Saga. OMG!! I am in love! It took me approximately 5 days to finish all four books. Who cares that it was suppose to be written for teenagers. We are always teenagers at heart right?

There is an ongoing feud between a group of friends. The feud is who has the "right" to Edward. I had to throw myself into the mix!! Taylor's stamps could not have come at a better time! I'll have figure out a way to make Edward "dazzle"!!

Huge Apology and a Winner!

My two days without Internet, turned into 10 days of waiting and calling, and waiting and calling, and waiting and calling. You get my picture. I was ready to throw in the towel and cancel with this company all together! Anyway our service is now up and running. So now I can pick a winner for the blog candy!! Sorry for the delay! picked

One more day for Otter Bits!!

You still have one more day to get in the drawing for Otter Bits. See the post below!!!

I've had some request for Halloween cards. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I am a SUCKER for anything Halloween. For this card I use an stamp from Inky Antics. If you are like me you have tons of scrapbook paper just sitting in your craft room. I am on a mission to use what I have. (at least that is what I am telling myself) We won't count the box I just got from eP last week! Anyway this is old SU! DSP, before they went double sided! I am so glad that all their paper is now double sided!

100 posts!!!

It only took me a year and a half to reach, but I did it! This is my 100th blog post!! Yahoo! It's time to celebrate! I put together a box of "Otter Bits" for you all.

What's in there? In honor of my new job, I've made this round of Otter bits baby themed. There is fun flock, ribbon, notecards, pre-cut note pads and baby embossed card stock. All for you to enjoy and create your own cute baby things!

Now in an ideal world, I would have something baby related to show you today...but I don't.

I am in Craft Show mode, therefore, everything lately has been holiday related. Today I have these cute little gift card holders that my friend MY, or Michelle, showed me. They use one peice of double sided paper cut to 4.25 x 11, scored at 3, 5.5 and 8 inches.

The notch is cut using a circle punch and the word widow punch.

A gift card will slip easily inside! So easy! I love them! Gift card holders were a "big" item at last years show, let's hope the same goes this year!

So you want in on the Otter Bits? Just leave a comment on this post and on Monday, I will use the Random Generator to pick a winner.

Game one is over!! 1-0 baby!! I am a little disappointed that Beanie Wells got injured!! He can't catch a break. He was hurt the first part of last season as well. Jillian, my middle DD, is nicknamed Beanie. She loves when she hears his name called on TV! LOL. Anyway, on to the post. I can't believe that I haven't posted this before. These are the party favors I did for my nieces wedding. They had a Buckeye theme. My SIL made...I don't know how many Buckeyes. The bag topper was made using a retired SU! sets Simply Circles and Artfully Asian. Computer generated text. I love how they turned out, as did the Bride and Groom!!
