Thank You!!

I wanted to show off a few items I received in the mail this week!

One is this tissue holder that Halle sewed up just for me! Isn't is FANTASTIC?!! I LOVE the colors and cherries are one of my favs! :) She also takes great photos and incorporates them into cards. You can check her blog out HERE!

The second is a Halloween card from Curt! I can't tell you how AMAZING this card looks in real life...such a great scene and so sparkly! My husband was even wowed by it!! You can check out his blog HERE! Make sure you watch the cute videos of his dogs "kids" while your there! They are very talented!

Thanks to both of you for thinking of truly warms my heart!! :)

Whole Wheat Strawberry Banana Muffin!

Click HERE for the recipe!
I used a regular sized muffin pan instead of the large size and put the strawberries in whole rather than slicing them. Overall, a very delicious muffin!


Happy Haunting!

I hope everyone had a safe and Happy Halloween yesterday! I have been so busy I didn't get a chance to make any Halloween cards til today. I just look at it as being early for next year! LOL! Sure feels good to be back in my crafty space for a little while!

Here is a card I made to encourage anyone and everyone to go take part in the current challenge over at Unstampabelles! You still have a few days to enter the Fall/Autumn theme! Just remember no stamps are allowed! Also, if you use stitching (real or faux) you will get your name in the pot twice for the monthly prize which is kindly sponsored by Pizzazz Aplenty!

The orange rhinestone on the top of the cats hat is from Pizzazz Aplenty...just adds that perfect touch! The main cat image which already has a faux stitching border and the sentiment are cut out from patterned paper....I received the paper from a friend (thanks)! I believe it is from the Rusty Pickle company and the "Addams Family" line. I also fussy cut the skull out of paper and covered the eyes and nose area with orange glitter.
