Regurgitated Candy

If you ventured over here from 3GirlJam's blog, not to worry...not gonna repeat myself too much!

I thought I would share the instructions so that you can easily create the above silly treat I've made for Halloween next month!

The overall dimensions (Finished) is 4.5 x 3 x 1 inches.

Following is a diagram for creating the box:





Instructions: (1) Cut your black cardstock to a size of 6 x 8.5 inches. (2) Score it where indicated (along the 8.5" side) at 1, 4, 6, and 8 inches. (3) Score it where indicated (along the 6" side) at 1 and 5.5 inches. (4) Cut where indicated by the solid lines.  Some of the cutting will cut away the areas indicated by the hatch marks. (5) Fold it along the score lines and examine it until you understand how to glue it together. (6) Glue or use super sticky double sided tape (I use Sobo glue or Sookwang tape). (7) Embellish until you are just super pleased with yourself! (8) Fill with yummy chocolate (or stuff your cat gave you back!!!!) (9) Fo…

Happy Bird-Day

Hi Everyone! I am currently on the road so I'm going to keep this post QUICK.
 I am on VACATION!

SO NEEDED.

That's right, I'm on vacation, but had to stop by and show you a little of what I was up to before I left.
I created this simple and elegant card for my mom's birthday. 

This card features a Happy Birthday greeting from theParty All Dayset and one of Donna Downey's newer stamps, Whispy Blue Bell.

You will also notice I used the crinkle ribbon, Sunflower, from the Harvest Bundle.  It is one of my FAVORITE yellows...not too bright, but not dull.  Just right.  And the nice color yellow will ease me right into the autumn season.  So, from here until next Spring, no more light blue flowers and springtime sprigs!

Well, that's it for me.  I'm going on the prowl for Cougars on the Cougar Mountain Park trail in Seattle! Here, kitty kitty!

Laugh with Your Eyes

Well, I told ya!  Last week, I was writing Santa a wish list and asking that the summer not end...and this week, our Fabulous Feature is the set, Fall for You, but I'm adding a little summery flower! So there!

This set has lots of swell designs for fall...Go Look HERE.  I'll have to use it again, when I'm feeling the rustle of leaves and cool breeze of autumn evenings! 

I actually can't wait for that, because I want to burn some stuff in my fire pit!

Despite torrential downpours yesterday evening, it was 85 F and about 200% humidity at 6 pm....I was a soggy mess when I finished my jog after work.

Not Yet Autumn (yippy)
Today is no better, but that's okay, because I am wearing my new little sweater I knitted this weekend to work!

Now, go check out all the other wonderful creations over on the {ippity} blog, using this same set.

GO (yeah, that's me...being bossy)

Weekend Knitting

This was my weekend project!  Finished JUST in time to wear to work!
My poor Oliver and Layla were VERY bored watching it rain ... and me knit ... ALL weekend long.
