I have the cutest CUTEST stamp set from LAWN FAWN to share with you today.  Everything about this set just warms my heart - the scarecrow, the cute birds, the pumpkins and corn stalks, and the mini leaves.

I also used the stitched STORYBOOK 1 DIES by PRETTY PINK POSH.  I love how it frames the colored images with stitches, don't you?

Thanks for stopping by.  I am entering this in SSS WEDNESDAY CHALLENGE:  ANYTHING GOES.

I made a whole batch of these cute witches shoes as a treat holder for the kids in my neighborhood as well as my grandkids.
 Even though you cannot purchase this bigz die through Stampin' Up!, I still use it every year because there has been nothing I have seen to replace it.  It is really a Christmas stocking die, but with the circle here for the toe and a circle punch to shape it, then a heel there attached and the height of the stocking shortened, you have a perfect witches shoe.  As they, IF THE SHOE FITS...

There are several warehouse stores on line that sell older or discontinued Sizzix dies, so if you want this die, I would suggest you look there.

I used the word window punch for the latches on the shoe and the stop of the stocking die in DSP for the cuff.

Hope you enjoyed my little Halloween Treat Holder.  Those are two mini KitKats, FYI.  Have you tried the WHITE CHOCOLATE KITKATS and the DARK CHOCOLATE KITKATS yet?

Happy Halloween

Fellow Demo and Blogger, Tammy White, featured this card a day or so ago and I knew I HAD to create one for my stepson's birthday.  Thanks, Tammy!!

I am sorry sorry for the photos.  I am having serious problems with my camera on my phone.  The brushed gold card stock and the gold embossing just isn't showing up as bright and wonderful as it really is!!

Even with a close up of the embossed Happy Birthday, it just doesn't show up very well. Sorry.

Of course, inside we put a nice Visa gift card as his present.  The keys of the piano are 1/2" strips, and I created the ends of the black keys with a square punch "en pointe".

Thanks for stopping by!!
