A crunchy,tasty thank you fall treat wrapped up in warm fall colors


    I finished up some fun thank you gifts for the youth group leaders that my daughter is working with this year.I had bought the plaid paper at Tuesday Morning for a really good price. I used my fry box die from Accucut to cut them out. I stamped some leaves and Acorns with some old TAC stamps and colored with water color pencils and then cut them out and popped them on with foam tape just under the raffi bows I tied around the box.
   A friend had told me about a great pumpkin pie spice popcorn recipe.I made 2 batches ( so good) and then bagged it up and put it in the box's. ( Hint put the bag in the box and then fill it, works much better that way) The recipe can be found on pinterest just put in pumpkin pie spice popcorn. or caramel corn and it should come up with several.
  I hope this inspires you to make some goodies for the special people in your lives.
  Thanks for stopping.

You have been Boo'd tag


This is a tag I did for Raisin Boat stamps Halloween challenge #27, and Mod Squad Challenge blog Sweet tooth. Halloween and Sweets a great combination!!
  I used Raisin Boats Frosted Frights stamp set.I colored the cup ghost cup cakes with copic markers and cut them out and popped them on the tag with foam tape. I die cut the tag and did faux stitches on the tag with a Momento marker.I added a fun washi tape across the bottom. The sayings were bent or shaped on the clear block to allow for a fun whimsical way of stamping the saying on the tag.
    It was nice to get a project done in between all of the wedding dress's I have to work on (24 left until I start slowing down) I hope you like it. This is a fun tag to put on a bag of goodies for a neighbor or co-workers.
  Oh don't forget to put on the google eyes for even more fun!
  Thanks for stopping.

a tiny touch of gingham


   A little goes a long way.That goes for the stripe of gingham on this get well card. I stamped the flower and colored it with Copic and die cut it with a spellbinders die and I then hand cut a tiny green mat.The front of a card I did a bit of dry embossing. I did a polka dot border on the side and the Hexagon a size larger then the matted flower on the front. I added the skinny stripe of gingham along the edge of the embossed polka dot.To finish it off I stamped the saying on the bottom
  I love the texture on this card it really adds some interest to the focal point of this card with out distracting from it.
    I will be posting this on the Mod Squad Challenge Blog's gingham challenge. Stop on by and see all of the other fun cards that people have made.
  Thanks for stopping.
