HAPPY HALLOWEEN TO YOU!!!  Today I am sharing with you the dogie treats I made for my Grand-Dogs Bella and Sasha.  I thought they needed a treat for Halloween also.  
These are Sasha's favorite Rawhide to chew on.
I stamped the lady skeleton, cut her out and added the bow.
I stamped the Bone Appetite on the CS and glued on the skeleton.
I used twine to tie two rawhide's together and then tie on
the embellishment.

I put four milk bone dog snacks in a 3 x 4 bag.  Using brown
CS I used a die cut to cutout the tops.  I attached the
 red dog and bone Felt Stickers by Creatology
(I found them at Michael's in a clearance bin)
Then stamped "Bone Appetite" and glued them to the bags.

I am going to make these at Christmas time and add a Santa hat.
That would really be cute huh?
I need to do some for the cat lovers out there too. 
Have a Haunting Halloween day!!

 My nephew Steven wanted some "Thank You"  cards to mail out for the gifts he received for his birthday Saturday.  Since he was going to mail most of them I didn't want to do a  3-D card because of the extra postage.  I decided to use Halloween paper since his birthday is on Halloween.  Hope you enjoy them!
I just took a "thank you" stamp and stamped it on the paper.

This one I cut out a red square from CS. Stamped "Thank you"
on white CS and attached them to the paper.
So are you ready for Halloween?  How about the time change?  I am looking forward to both.  Have a pumpkin of a day...

Saturday I had a Birthday party for my nephew Steven.  Of course it was a Halloween theme and I had so much fun decorating  and cooking for the party. He will turn 14 years old on Halloween day.  How fun to be born on Halloween.  He is always guaranteed candy for his birthday...LOL  Here are a few pictures of some of the items I made.
This was the birthday card Renee made for Steven. She used
 her Cricut.  Great Card!
These are the Ghost and Pumpkin cookies I made.
I used them as a center piece with Fall flowers.

Blow Pop Witch Brooms.
 I saw these on the blog:
so I just had to make them.  They are made using coffee filters.

Eye balls inside Cheese Balls and Skittles....hee hee

Skeleton Veggie tray. 

He is so cute!

Mummy hot dogs. 

Happy Birthday Ghost.

Birthday Cake. 
 Have a ghostly good week!!

Hi Everyone.  Here are the cards we made using the Avonlea workshop on the Go kit.  Of course we ate and talked and just crafted away.  Like always it was lots of fun.

To create the embellishment for the middle of the card we started
 with cream CS. Stamped and distressed the CS with
Chocolate ink, stamped the leaves then added the punched scallop.
We stamped the larger flower in purple and smaller one in green
cut both of them out and attached them with foam adhesive.

This was a very simple card to make.  This card is all about
 the paper.  We stamped the "Thank You" sentiment. attached it
 to CS and  then attached it to the card.  Added
bling and we were done.  Beautiful paper don't you think?

So I just couldn't stay away from the Fall colors.....LOL
This card was made using the Abundance Holiday stamp set.
Not sure where the paper is from I pulled it out of my single paper
rack.  The black embellishments in the corners are made using a
Cricut die cut. The leaves are a Martha Stewart punch. 

We used the Prismacolor markers to color in the image.  
Thanks for stopping by today.  Check back tomorrow for the Wednesday Ladies Card night creations.  Have a Fantastic day!

Today I am sharing a card using the CTMH "Abundance Holiday" stamp set.  It's a great Thanksgiving/gratitude stamp set.  One year I sent out a few Thanksgiving cards to a few family and friends who had really made a difference in my life that year and to those I hadn't seen in awhile. A wonderful thing happened they all called or stopped by to visit.  It was a beautiful gift I received that year spending time with those I care about.  Sometimes we get so caught up in the season preparing for that one Thanksgiving day  that we  forget to just take a step back and enjoy our everyday life with family and friends.  Oh My!  Did I have a lot to say today or what?  Sorry!! I got a little off track there...  Here's the cards I made.  

I used the Prismacolor markers and some distress inks.  

I used a brighter background on this one. 

I forgot to take a picture of the inside but it reads:
"Give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way".
Happy Thanksgiving. 

Thanks for listening to by babbling.  Hope you stop by tomorrow and see what we made using the Avonlea Workshop on Go kit.  Today give thanks for the unknown blessings on their way!

 Happy Monday to you!.  Hope you had a great weekend and now your ready for another gorgeous week!   Tomorrow I am giving a workshop using the Avonlea Card Making kit from CTMH.  I wanted to give you a sneak peek at the stamp set.
I used the "Wishing you Well" and the small flowers from the
 Avonlea stamp set.
The paper is from a KC&COMPANY.  

Here is the stamp set the kit comes with. It's really a nice stamp set.
It's going to be a great crafting week this week. We have Wednesday Ladies Card night and the Avonlea workshop.  So make sure you check back to see what we have done.  Have a excellent day.

Happy Friday to you!!  Can you believe I made a card that is not related to Fall or Fall colors?  LOL  This card was made using the "Paper Smooches Stamps Birthday Buddies".  Paper Smooches makes the cutest characters.  I saw this card on a blog awhile back and thought it was just adorable. 
I stamped and colored the smooches then cut out a square box  and
decorated it as a present with the worm popping out.  
The sentiment is from CTMH Card Chatter-Birthday.
I added yarn to the tops of the birthday hats to add a little more color. 

Inside of the card. 
This weekend hope you can spend some time crafting and relaxing.

Hello there thanks for taking a moment to stop by and say hi.  Today's card is made using the paper from the Flirty workshop on the Go kit.   I just love the Flirty Yellow in this packet.

The flowers are from the Bessie's lace store I showed last week. 

This sentiment is from the "Family Love" CTMH stamp set. 
May God Bless you and your family always. Have a great day!

Both of today's cards are made using a different kind of fold. I am using the CTMH Quick Cards-Bountiful Season stamp set.  It can be found on page 85 of the CTMH autumn/winter catalog. It reads: May the bounty of the season fill your heart and home. 
Using chalk I colored in the leaf and added color all around the
cream CS. 
The paper is from Michael's & SU. 

This is the second card I made.  Not sure where this paper came from.
I used the Prismacolor markers to color in the leaf and distress ink to
add color around the leaf.  
This is the fold on the card.  
Hope your enjoying the cool weather and beautiful Fall colors.  Have a super great day!

My daughters boyfriend had a birthday this weekend.  I decided to make him some cookies.  I decorated this plastic container to package them in. (forgot to take a picture of the cookies, they were frosted pumpkins)

I used the Memory Box die cut and the Recollections stamp set for the tag. 

Close up of the tag.
This card was made using a SU tree set and the CTMH birthday stamp set.
The leaves are a punch and the paper was from my scrap pile. I used
flower soft for the tree. 

Close up of the tree.  
Thanks for stopping by today!

My sister is having a Halloween party for my niece Isabella.  They came over so we could make the invites for the party.  I was dog sitting for our grand-dog Sasha (No grandchildren yet just Grand-Dog) so Isabella was giving Sasha her dogie treats but she loves dogie treats herself so it was "One for her one for Sasha".  

Don't worry we didn't let Izzie eat the dog treats but she would if  her  Mom let her.

This is the invites that we made.
It reads:  Witching you would join us for a bite on Halloween night. 

I just had to show you this card that Heather's sister Felicity made.
She is just so darn talented.  

Don't you just love it!!!
Have a dogie dog week and stay away from those dogie treats....
