Finally Friday

I am glad it is Friday, DH has been in Houston this week and I am glad to have him home before Ike hits. We have a good friend who is a firefighter on the FEMA team who has been sent there & is in Houston to help with any problems that may occur....I am keeping him & the rest of the people in the path of Ike in my prayers.

This is a card that Sam came up with for Wednesday(Her birthday). She cased the idea from Lindsey who was kind enough to share her template. Thanks Sam & Lindsey for the cute card. I ended up using a cuttlebug for "nuts" & then used crystal effects to paint a glaze on the carmel.

Not too sure about this card. This is a new SU! set "Happy Blessings" that is in the Holiday Mini starting October 1st. I embossed the pumpkins, gourds, sunflower centers & blackbird. The blackbird paper is from Debbie Mumm's collection.
Carolyn came up with this adorable card, She used Debbie Mumm's paper pack also. I am not sure who the stamps are by. I had to leave early on Wednesday & in my haste to finish I forgot to put in my eyelets so I made faux eyelets when I came home & them topped them off with stickles to make them shine. Carolyn you outdid yourself like usual. Thanks!

Alyce brought 3 different sizes of these little baskets to show. She said she followed the SCS "treat Box" tutorial so when I came home I had to try it. I took it one step further & put an eyelet in the center of the bottom to help hold the creepy candy sign I made. The creepy candy sentiment and the pumpkin are PaperTreyInk stamps. The paper I picked up at Mike's.

This last card is Sam's birthday card I made for her. The stamps are stubbies from Stamps by Judith. You can not see the stickles but they are everywhere on this card. It really shines in person. We had a great time at Sam's. We ate a wonderful lunch of Italian Wedding soup made by JoAnne....yummy. Carolyn made a delicious cake, Marie made Cookies & I took a salad. Very yummy lunch ,Thanks girls.

Alyce helped us make these darling little bags. I love how easy they are & she cased the idea from Cambria Turnbow . Can't wait to make some more. I suppose that is all for this week. Hope your week ahead is a creative one!
