Blog Hop Wednesday -- October 26, 2016

Trick or Treat!  So this is my last Halloween card.  Today I started working on my Christmas cards.  I need to get them finished for mailing in a couple weeks.  Can you believe Christmas is only 2 months away!  Oh  my gosh, where did this year go?

Did you come to my blog from Liz's blogsite?  Love her card.  We did some crafting this afternoon so I got a sneak peek even before she put it on her blog,    When you leave me you need to continue to Robbie's blogsite.

This is my card.  Another with those scary eyes.  I bet I will still be using those eyes long after they retire.  They are so much fun.

Next week we will start on our November cards.  We will be working on fall thank you cards.  See you next week -- or maybe before.  One of these days I'll put more on my blog, but in the meantime have a nice week.

Crafty Hugs,

Blog Hop Wednesday -- October 19, 2016

Happy Wednesday!   It is time again for our blog hop, and today we have a full house.  I believe everyone is here.  You should have arrived from Liz's blogsite.  Since Liz and I were crafting together on Sunday, she knows what I planned and I know her plan.  Isn't her card cute!  Love that teddy bear.

I hope everyone out there is having the weather I am having.  Wow!  Temps are a little high for this time of year.  We had 80 today with blue skies and a bit of breeze.  Perfect.  Combine that with all the leaves that are changing and I could sit outside and stare into space all day.  I think we have a couple more days of this so I plan to get outside again tomorrow.

Oh, right, we are doing a hop today.  We are challenged all month to do Halloween items.  I did a card for today using the scary eyes in the Jar of Haunts set.  I just love those eyes and have been using them all over.  I've started sending out cards to a few friends and have put them on the envelope.  On another card you open to the inside and there are those scary eyes looking at you.  I think they are the best of the set.

Ok, so here is my card.......

So easy.  Some designer paper, a little Pumpkin Pie glimmer paper, a jar with eyes, and a cute card is born.  You should head on now to Robbie's blogsite.

Have a wonderful week.  See you soon.

Wednesday Blog Hop -- October 12, 2016

Welcome everyone.  I'm baaaaaack!  Hubby and I took a driving trip to Maine for a few days of relaxation, and then to Connecticut to visit 3 of our grands on our way home.  We had a great time at Booth Bay Harbor where we played tourist, took a day trip to an island, and ate our fill (for now) of lobster.  This time we did not try to coordinate our trip with fall leaves although we saw a few.  We only wanted to get away for a few days and then see 3 of our grands for a few days.  The whole trip was a lot of fun.

Now I am back to re-join our Wednesday hop.  Our theme for October is Halloween.  My contribution this week uses the test tubes from our September Paper Pumpkin and is a sample of one of the treat holders I plan to send to some of our grands for Halloween.  Every year I try to send them something cute and something holding at least a little candy.  My sample here has tic tacs in the tube only because that was all I could find around here that was small.  I plan to put M&Ms or some other Halloween treat for the actual treats I send.

I am loving the Cookie Cutter Halloween and Christmas stamps, and the punch makes it so easy to cut them out.  They fit perfectly with what I want to do for our grandchildren both Halloween and Christmas.  I've already used them several times and plan to use them more.

You probably hopped to me from Liz's blogsite, and when you leave here you should continue to Robbie's blogsite.

Have a wonderful week.  Since I am working on lots of different things right now, I hope to do a little more blogging.  However, I always have good intentions.  We'll see what happens.

Happy Crafting,
