Halloween is Coming.. What do you do for it..

I have a great time this time of year.. HALLOWEEN.. we used to have so much fun with the kids.. costumes and decorating the house.. bond fires.. fire works..

Well with no one home or close now I do boxes to all the Kids and grand-kids and some of there friends..

This year I did tags.. Here a picture of some that I managed to put together..

These also would go for the challenge over at Creative Accents Seriously Creative Challenges..

These two above are for my youngest two grand children.  The tags are attached to little bags of candy..

My husband saw the empty box and just about had a bird thinking I had eaten it all.. cause there was candy in there he wanted.. Nope not me was very good and didn't eat any  but did do up twenty bags and tags to go in the mail.. Hope they all get there on time..

Here is a picture of the pile of them all together..

Had so much fun with them.. used perfect Pearls.. Tim Holtz Halloween Distress inks.. Stamps..
and lots of glitter spray..

Hope you all are having a great time creating your Halloween goodies..
Take Care come back again soon..
Have an awesome Birthday card that will go up on the 31st for my Son in law..

Playing with Memory Box Dies

Last night realized I needed a quick card for a Birthday.. I have a small collection of Memory Box Dies and love the way these cut I used them to create these two cards.. Think I am going to be adding a few more to that collection.. They have some in at Creative Accents and they have no problem ordering them in for you.. I have a few I have yet to play with for Christmas cards..

So here is what I put together last night.. (paper doesn't show as well as it should it is the new shinny stuff they just got back in at the store) Blue card will be in the store later today for you to get a better look at..

I also did the following card alittle while ago and will be taking it to the store sometime today for you to get a better look at.. It is done with TH Distress Pens and coloring the stamp..
Well thanks for dropping by

Take care

October Challenge Time At Creative Accents

Well September sure disappeared  quickly and we  are having some beautiful weather with the best fall colors happen- in..

So with that in mind as well as Halloween coming up fast here is your photo inspiration

I love the colors of fall myself.. (don't like the idea that winter comes next) 
walking in the dry leaves and the smells.. 
With that it mind here is my first item..

I used a Hero Arts stamp set with leaves.. 
Ranger Distress Inks in the fall pallet
Some nice ribbon in fall colors..
I stamped and cut out the stamp on post it note to use as a mask 
I laid the ink down on my work surface then wiggled and walked the stamp..
Masking off the leave before next stamp.. 

Also did a second item.. I can't remember for sure where I saw this I do believe it was 
The picture is not the best.. It is a Pumpkin   
I used Halloween pumpkin paper cut into 1" x6" strips
Distressed the edges.
two brads one for each end of the Pumpkin
punched holes approx.. 1/2" from each end 
Alternated the paper strips and formed my shape..
I cut leaves in different colored scraps and a vine from my Memory Box collection
These were all sprayed with shiny spray ( sorry don't remember which one I used)
Rolled the leaves slightly to give some die-mention
Stem is some rolled thin wire I had..

Will make a lovey fall center piece  or what have you.. quick to make
Well thanks for stopping by be sure to take a look over and enter at 

Looking Forward to see what you do..

Take care
