Ready...Set..Go For Christmas Episode 6. A Shaped Card........Some of my Halloween Goodies for Saturday's Craft Show

Hi everyone,
Boy, I wanted to get more posts in this week but I found out Monday that I would be doing a craft show this Saturday!!!.  Thankfully I have lots of items already made, but I still was out straight.  Below are a couple of pictures of my treat section.  I always try to have a seasonal treat section for each show.  I also heard Monday that I will have another show Dec. 10.  Wow at least a little more upfront time. 
This week's Christmas card is a Jingle Bell shaped card.  Simple but pretty.  Check it out.  Measurements are given on the video.

Now for some Halloween Treats

Check out that ghostly choir.  They are Tootsie pop wrapped in a coffee filter, tied with butcher's twine and stamped with a Peachy Keen face.
The little packages hold Reeses peanut butter cups and the funny guys are Frankinhersey.
Oh my, such fun to make.  These will transform into Frosty the Hersey Bar for Christmas.
My hubby made the little stand for the ghosts.  They look too cute standing there.
Well that's all for today.  Tomorrow I will be busy checking out my card stash and making more as needed.
See you nice

Birthday Card for fall using scraps

Hi everyone,
Well this entry took forever.  I finally got the YouTube video to load last night (after two tries), and by that time it was too late for me to write the blog entry.  This card is made from scraps left over from my fall mini album.  I will enter it into this week's Birthday Sundaes challenge HERE which is to use fall colors.  The paperstack is a recollections DCWV Simply Autum stack.  These new recollection stacks by DCWV are beautiful and the paper is nice and heavy.
Anyway here is the card and the video ;

Build A Page Fall Mini Album

Here is the Build A Page Mini I just finnished.  It was made from a tutorial over at Kathy's paper phenomenon.  I love the way it came out.  Making mini albums is new to me as I am primaraly a card maker.  Each time gets a little easier.  What do you think?

Well time to get busy on a Christmas Mini.
