Halloween M&M treats

Happy Halloween weekend!  These fun "candy sticks" are easy to make and great for classrooms or trick or treaters...I'd ordered the M&M's on line so I could pick my colors, but later realized that you can find them at Michaels for the same price.  The clear bags are from http://www.clearbags.com/  and I have lots of plans for the rest of them!
Be safe this weekend!  And thanks for stopping by!

Paper crafted Topiary

This beautiful topiary was made by friend and sideline, Tammy, for our convention roomie gifts.  The flowers are die cut and punched.  What a pretty decoration and/or gift!  Also in the picture to the top right--a card that DeAnn (downline) made and below, a shadow box that Pam (downline) made (that was a convention roomie gift from 2 years ago).  Don't you wish you were roomies with us at convention?  We get the BEST stuff!
Thanks for stopping by!

Fall Foliage "man card"

I copied this card from someone (sorry can't remember who!) because I thought it was a great card for a guy's b'day...AND I LOVE this stamp set!  Plus it has a new technique that I wanted to try--stamping with the acrylic block!  It's stamped in Sahara Sand, stamped off and then "rock and rolled" in Expresso (see the square in the middle of the card?)  What a fun way to incorporate the blocks into a collage!  We are making this at the make & take this weekend...

Rudolph, the Red-nosed...OWL?

Have you ever made a card that you liked so much that you can't stop looking at it?  That's how I feel about this one!  And we are making it this weekend at the make & take....I used the Christmas DSP (notice the glitter that comes on the paper?) and the owl punch.  The antlers are from the snowflake punch.  And I added the matching fabric on the right side of the card.  It will say something, but I haven't decided yet!
Hope to see you at the make & take!  And thanks for stopping by!

Stamping weekend at the Embassy

Here we are, taking advantage of the FREE drinks at the Manager's reception before stamping til the wee hours of the night!  It was so much fun! Sadly, I didn't finish all of the projects I took with me to do!  We are also celebrating Elaine's b'day.  These girls are all so funny!  I haven't laughed so hard for ages!  Were doing it again in the Spring--so join us!!!
