Happy Owlloween!

Once again I used punches to create this cute candy treat pack. The SU Top Note BigZ Die from Sizzix was used for his head and circle punches for the eyes and the small oval punch for his nose. Don't you just love the Halloween energy that abounds! Or, could that be effects from the candy corn? Haha!
And, today is my friend Cory's birthday. He and his wife, Amber, are temporarily living in Spain, so it's a bummer we won't get to celebrate with them this year as we've done in the past. Hopefully they will be back soon though.

Along Came A Spider...

We made these in our most recent Downline Meeting and OMG, isn't he the cutest. And easy peasy. You can probably determine he's made from all punches. Oh, and there is a York Peppermint Patty in between the two scallop circle punches.

Let It Snow-NO, not really!

Not yet anyway. I was especially looking forward to a little cold weather as I now have a hot tub, but since I've had a head cold for almost a week now I've really not been in the mood to get in it. Nor am I sure it's the best thing when one has a cold. However, that has not dampened my holiday card making mood as most of the card creators I see are doing as well. I love this set and just got it recently. The colors are not traditional, but I still like it a lot.

Jolliest Time of The Year!

I so love this set! I just got it yesterday and made all three cards last night. I am missing my creative mo- jo lately (probably because I have a head cold) and absoluetly CASED each one. I plan to use them for my October Stamp Class. I really need the Always Artichoke for the Tree one though and will most likely order AGAIN!

Ray's Birthday Card!

And, here is the card I made for Ray's Birthday. Yep, his birthday is three days after Ming's and the same day as his best friend, Griff. Ray happened to be out of town on business the day of his birthday, but he and Griff apparently celebrated very well on Saturday out on the river on Ray's boat and pier. :D

Ming's Birthday!

First let me say when I first typed the title to today's post it converted it to Hindi! OMG, it was too funny. I panicked and realized I changed something in error last week and quickly corrected it. Whew!!

Anyway, Ming's Birthday was Sunday and this is the card I made for her. I CASED it from one I'd seen on the SU Demonstrator site; I absolutely love the Regal Rose color. This has got to be one of my all time favorite layouts and color schemes.

On Saturday, Denisha, her son (Jacob), and Ming and Emily came over to the house/studio so the children could play in my yard and the adults could make cards and just have a nice time creating. Which we did! It was so nice and watching Emily and Jacob play was quite entertaining as well. I look forward to doing that again. Oh, and my sister's birthday was Saturday. And, Ming's husband's birthday is tomorrow along with three of my other friends. January of those years certainly was a busy month. I've got quite a few more friends who have a birthday this month as well.
