The Witch Is In

I have been wanting to make something like this for my office/craft room door for quite a while and finally got it done. I used printable vinyl for Stella the Witch and colored pencils.
She looks exactly like me and I'm leaving it up even after Halloween. LOL

Ribbon is from the Paper Studio "Faith" pack.

Candy Goes Here! Crafty Sprouts Challenge

Yippy Skippy this is my first challenge as a new DT member at Crafty Sprouts.
The challenge was to make a treat container and since Halloween is just around the corner I had to make something for my very favorite Halloween treat.
The cut file for this container is from Sugar Gem and it is super easy to put together.
The trees and pattern paper are from the DCWV Amber Autumn Fall Stack. I punched the trees with a Fiskars punch. The ghosts and black cats are studio g punches and the spider web border is made with an ek success punch. Do you all think I may like my punches just a little. lol
I found a dot-to-dot pumpkin and printed it on some more DCWV Amber Autumn Fall Stack paper and matted it on black cardstock. I used a piercer to poke the holes and used Mandarin twine from The Twinery to stitch it. Turned out so super cute.
The sentiment is from Crafty Sprouts "Totally Witchin" stamp set. This is such a fun set with such awesome sentiments especially for this time of year. You can get this set HERE.
If you would like a chance to win 2 DCWV paper stacks
(and you know you need some more cool paper)
just head over to Crafty Sprouts and enter this challenge.
While you are there check out the awesome treat holders my DT sisters made and be sure to leave them some bloggy love.

I have been bursting at the seams!!!

I have been so excited all week. Just busting at the seams to spill this AWESOME news.
 made me a member of her Design Team
I was on the edge of my seat for what seemed like forever waiting to hear who the new members would be and hoping that I would be lucky enough to join this terrific group of ladies. They have offered so much inspiration and I am honored to join their ranks.

I made this card to celebrate.
Not only becoming a Crafty Sprouts DT member but also because I have found so many precious bloggy friends this past year. It is amazing how folks that you know only through this box known as a computer can reach through and touch your life even more than folks you see in person on a regular basis. You are all Precious Friends to me!!
I printed out this picture twice and cut the center out of one to make it a shaker.
The pearls are from the convention that was in town this last weekend.
The crinkle ribbon is from 3 Girl JAM "Baby Bundle".
The sentiment is of course from Crafty Sprouts "Let's Go Blog Hopping" stamp set. These stamps are so fun and easy to play with. You really should head over and check them out. She has 7 fan-tab-ulous sets. Each set also has a bar code stamp that is totally cool.

Cards for Christian

Erika at Crafty Sprouts is having a special challenge. Her friend Betty from Simply Betty Stamps has a very courageous son and he is going through a very difficult time because he has been diagnosed with throat cancer. I am sure he would absolutely love to receive a mail box full of cards from some special crafty friends.

This is the card I started making last night (even before I knew about Erika's awesome challenge).
This stamp is Christian and you can get him just by donating a little to help with all the medical costs they are going to have. The sentiment is from Pink by Designs "Faith" stamp set. I just hope Christian appreciates how very hard it was for me to not add a bunch of bling but I just don't think he would get a kick out of  tons of Stickles, gems and ribbon bows. lol

If you would like to send him a card head over to Crafty Sprouts for the details.
