It's Trick or Treating Day

Today's final Thursday special is on Chevron ribbon.  I love the black one since you can color it with marker and have a chevron accent in any color!

Ribbons on sale for $6.71 instead of $8.95 are:
  • Basic Black 3/4" Chevron Ribbon - #130010
  • Calypso Coral 3/4" Chevron Ribbon - #130018
  • Crushed Curry 3/4" Chevron Ribbon - # 130019
  • Island Indigo 3/4" Chevron Ribbon - # 131151
  • Smoky Slate 3/4" Chevron Ribbon - # 131152
You can order them here

The hostess code for online orders for next month is G3SGBMJK.  Anyone that purchases anything online by 11/24 can enter this code.  If we reach a qualifying party total ($150), I will draw a mystery hostess from those that purchased and the lucky winner will get the free merchandise.

Today will be the first time Callie goes trick or treating.  She's been practicing all week to scam candy out of her gullible mommy who think it's very cute how she pretends to knock on the door and shyly asks for candy and then shouts thank you once the prize is delivered.

She will be going as her favorite princess, Cinderella.  Daddy and Mommy are being her mouse friends Jaq and Mary.  I was very disappointed last night to realize that being a Project Runway fan doesn't automatically qualify you to make jackets in an hour.  Seriously?  It's so easy on TV....  But we have made hats, noses, and other accessories using my Stampin' Up! supplies and my patience.  Pictures tomorrow.

For today, I thought I'd post a final Halloween project.  This card was designed by Cris McCarthy again and I love the simplicity and the layout on this one.  Remember that these products are available in the holiday mini until the end of December so remember to order if you want to use them for next year's crafting!

Cardstock/DSP: Very Vanilla
Marker: Basic Black
Stamp Set: Tags 4 You
Accessories: Bracket Punch, 1/8 Pumpkin Pie Taffeta Ribbon, Witches' Brew Washi Tape, Dimensionals

Craftastic Notes:
  • To get the big border around the Trick or Treat Image, you ink up the stamp with the marker and then punch it out with the bracket punch.  This usually leaves about 1/8 inch of cardstock outside the border.  Just use your marker and color that ink.  Cute idea, eh?  Glad mom thought of it and shared so we could pass that little tidbit on!
  • When using washi tape, don't try to put it right to the edge of the cardstock when you tear it.  Extend it past the end of your project and then either cut the excess off or wrap it to the back of the cardstock.  Washi tape is not about exact placement.  :)  I'm still learning this!

Have a craftastic Halloween,
