Happy Haunting!

Well, our favorite saying this time of year is "The only ghost around here is HOLY!" While I'm not a fan of celebrating all things spooky and evil- I am a fan of this time of year! I love the fall! And along with fall comes the tradition of Halloween. Cadie was a cute dalmatian this year and Cooperman donned an Iron man costume for this years fun activates. I think little Bear is going to be baby Frankenstein? He is way to cute for that!No cute pictures of those yet! But I would like to share with you some precious and super easy treats I made for Cooperman's class this year.
Y'all these were unbelievably the easiest treat I have ever made!
I bought a bag of jumbo pumpkin marshmallows at Target. I melted some chocolate Almond Bark in a ziplock bag. Cut the corner and drizzled the chocolate over the marshmallows, then shook on the sprinkles! That's it! Easy Peasy.
After they dried. I place a pumpkin on top of a graham cracker square and placed them in a small treat bag and tied the end with a piece of bakers's twine. (forgot to take picture of that step) Last, I made 2.5 inch square boxes with the box punch board decorated them and placed the treat inside! I made about 15 but only took this one picture and it's not the cutest one, but you get the idea! I also made some really cute "pumpkin cakes" for my PT team who have been doing amazing wonders on my back and neck!They actually fought over the boxes I made to put them in! That made my day!
I really thought they drool over the cakes! Oh well, I need to get busy,so until next time! Love yall and thanks for stopping by!Till next time be blessed and go bless someone else today!

WOW! What a weekend!

Good morning Sunshine! Love these cool fall days where here in Dixie we wake up to 50 degree temps instead of 70! There is a clean crisp feeling in the air and I love it! Of course it entices me to stay in bed under the covers for a little longer than I have time for.
I had the best weekend ever! Friday Tombo and I drove to Memphis, Tennessee. First time I've been back in 20 years! I actually enjoyed a really amazing reunion with 7 of the best friends a 8 year old every had!I arrived home to receive the most beautiful card in the mail! Don't you love o get mail that's not a bill and advertisement! And it was from Australia!!!! It was a "RAK" card from another crafter that is in a Facebook group where I am also a member.
Isn't this a beautiful card. I just love it. It came from Debra Barlow of Tennant Creek in Australia. I even saved the stamp! On top of that my October Paper Pumpkin also arrived in the mail! A bright pink box to honor and bring awareness to Breast cancer. Stampin' Up donated a dollar for each monthly subscriber and another one for any new subscriptions. "WE" were able to make a nice donation. I say we because it takes all of us working together- my 10-15 dollars might not help much alone... but add them to all the others and now we can do something. so thank you to all of you who have signed up for Paper Pumpkin! We can make a difference together.

I'm so excited!!!!!

October's Stampin Friends Blog Hop!


It's all about Halloween!

Welcome to the October Halloween Stampin Friends Blog Hop. I am so excited to be a guest with Maria Willis on this hop! Please check out all these talented stampers.
 As I am new to doing Blog Hops it has been a learning experience for me! If you arrived from Lisa's blog thank you for continuing on our Halloween Hop! If you just started, please continue on to see some great projects from some really talented stampers.

I have a somewhat clean and simple card to share today. It is a style I like but am not always good at. The card is a single layer card! I almost never do this, but I really like it. If you haven't tried the thick White Cardstock- it is awesome! I added the cut Spider web dollies and the Black Glimmer paper behind the Happy Haunting saying. 

My other project is this candy cover box. I actually designed this box for this coffee candy I found at a local outlet store.The box is made using two pieces of Designer Series Paper. The Black Glimmer Paper forms a belly band around where the two pieces meet. Very simple, but I love it! And the best thing is I used scraps of DSP to make it. Don't want to waste 1 inch of that stuff! Here's a close up of this one. Love the "Faboolaus" saying! 
Now, my favorite stamp set is ....uhhhh....mmmmmm....this is hard, I guess right now, current catalog it's Happy Scenes. Why is this important?

Gift Card Holder and weekly deals!

Hey Y'all!
How is everyone? At our house we say "Fat and happy"! Working on the Fat part though! Ugh!!!! I have a couple things to share today. First I made this awesome gift card for my friend Debbie. She needed a gift card holder for a door prize at an event she was attending in Colorado last week! It turned out so cute. I used a card sketch from Donna Griffin. Love it! The colors really pop!
Card stock is Cucumber Crush, Basic Black and Whisper White. I also used the Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper and New Black Glimmer paper!
The base is cut 4 1/4 by 11, 
scored at 2 1/8 and 5 1/2 on the 11" edge. The front piece folds over to created the pocket for the gift card. 
What do y'all think?

I also want to share this weeks "Weekly Deals". There are some great savings here so check them out.
Okay that's all for today. Y'all have a blessed day and go bless someone else and you will be truly blessed!
