Last Day to get SPOOKY!

Its a scary day my friends.  One this day we actually give tons of candy to kids...yes, we give it away even though we know it rots their teeth and causes them to climb walls with a single leap.  We hide our children's faces with paint as if to say..this is not really my kid that is climbing the walls and ringing your doorbell like as if you wouldn't open the door and give them candy on the first ring.  Yes, my friends a scary day.

And this day bring to a close the final day to enter something on Danielle's Blog for your chance to get amazing stampers candy.  That's right...you should be scared...cause I just entered something :)  Run, Hide....don't enter, cause I WANT IT ALL.  No worries...its a random drawing..someone is gonna be happily scared!  Here is my entry.  I made something another one a few years back and just had to make it again.  I love these boxes!  Remember its got to be scary, mental or manic!

Poinsettia Card

I got a sample of the fun FELT LEAVES from Creative Impressions  and decided to go crazy with them...thinking outside the box.  Here is what I came up with.  I used the red leaves and green leaves out of the back.  I layered it on their amazing cork paper and added little brushed gold brads for the center and flourish.  It is not my normal type of cards as there is no coloring or bows...but I did use the crepe ribbon and the green swirl ribbon as a little extra somethin-somethin.  Enjoy the inspiration!

Aminal Crackers

Yup...I said A-M-I-N-A-L.  That's what my little (not so little anymore) boy called them...so aminal it has always been.  Here is a recipe swap I have been working on.  I created these aminal files for the page using Klic-n-kut studios.  I have been happily cutting on my KNK.  This is a "not so like me" creation, but it felt right...so I will leave it be.  Flowers, ribbons, glitter and bows will have to wait until the next project.
