Happy Halloween, Friends!!

Hello & Happy Friday!

Yep, we made it to Halloween! WooHoo!

Today my hubby had the day off and both Gigi & Bailee had a Vet appointment this morning. All is fine. Then we made a run to the store to get Christmas candy to fill all my crafts for my upcoming shows. After that we made our way to our to Deb & Ed's for our annual get together to hand out candy for Trick or Treat night. We were neighbors for 17 years and always got together to hand out candy. Then we moved to Joplin, Missouri and moved back a year later. Every year since we came back we kept up with the tradition of handing candy out together! We always have a good time & enjoy it so much!

Anyways, we made our way back home and I wanted to watch Gold Rush on tv then get the blog updated. I have a few more Halloween things to share and this will be the last of it for this year.

Here we go!

Candy Corn Tissue Packs

Boo Tissue Holders

September's Paper Pumpkin Project...

Halloween Box made with the Petite Gift Boxes in the Holiday Mini....

Well, that's all I have tonight!
Hope everyone had a fun Halloween night!
Tomorrow all my decorations will come down and we'll get ready for Thanksgiving! 
Boy, the time is just flying by!

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!

More Halloween Goodies

Hello & Happy Thursday!

A late post for me today!
I was at my stamp table all day today and i'm seeing the light at the end of the tunnel so to speak. I'm quickly crossing things off my list that I have decided to make for the craft shows this season and that is making me happy!!

Today I am sharing just a few last minute Halloween treats that I whipped up!

First up is some tins my Mom bought me at Michael's and I filled these with Candy Corn M&M's.

I used some Witches Brew DSP to wrap the outside of the tin and used Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain Ribbon around it. I used the Halloween Hello set for my candy corns and sentiment. I sold a few of these....

Then I made a few Nugget Packs.
These are fun and everyone loves the Hershey's Nuggets!
The spider web comes from a die that I borrowed from my friend Deb. It is from Amuse.

Stamps I used on the Nugget Packs are:

Trick or Treat
Spooky Bingo Bits
It's A Wrap-Holidays

Well, that's all I have for today!
Heading off to bed for now but will be back tomorrow for Halloween!
I love Halloween!

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!

Halloween Owl Treats

Hello & Happy Wednesday!

It's quite the rainy day here in south central PA today! I had to turn on some heat this morning to take the chill off as I head downstairs to do some crafting. My Mom & Dad came yesterday and brought us a big turkey dinner for supper which was a really nice treat! We were all stuffed after that nice warm meal! Thanks Mom! It was much appreciated!! Anyways she took a walk down to my stamp area and was looking at what I had made already for my craft shows. She loved what she saw but also reminded me that I have alot more work to do. So guess what i'll be doing today? Yep, crafting! I know the countdown is on as we are less than a month for delivery at my one show. Crunch time is on!

So anyways, before I get started I wanted to share with you a few more Halloween Treats that I made up! My stamp girls pretty much got all of these! LOL I got the idea from my dear friend, Vicki! She made and sent my family some of these last Valentines Day and added a Twix bar to them! Mmmm love Twix bars! I decided to change them up and make them into Halloween Owls.  I added a snack size Hershey's Cookie & Cream bar to them. I loved them!

I made more but they went out the door before I had a chance to take pictures!
Becky Roberts I think is the original creator of these. Her blog Inking Idaho, which is on my side bar will probably have the directions to make these if your interested.

Halloween Owl Treats:

Stamps: Halloween Hello
Ink: Basic Black, Basic Gray
Cardstock: Basic Black, Basic Gray, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Very Vanilla, various DSP
Accessories: Circle & Scallop Circle Punches, Sm Heart Punch, SU Fancy Fan EF, Ribbon, Glue Dots, Dimensionals, Liquid Multi Mono

So cute!

Well, that's all for today!

Sorry about not having a Merry Monday post yesterday. I took the week off since my back has been giving me some troubles. I've been taking my pain meds plus keeping ice on it and it's starting to get better, thankfully! I think it's due to the change in the weather this last week. My back isn't liking this cooler weather and I dread what winter will bring.

Anyways, today is the first day I made my way to my stamp table since last Thursday. I wanted to play along with this week's Color Challenge from over at Splitcoaststampers! They have some beautiful colors this week!

The colors are:

Real Red, Crumb Cake & Coastal Cabana
