Fall-O-Ween benefits "Adopt a Classroom"
Winter Wishes benefits "Adopt a Classroom"
Scripture Sayings benefits "Good Samaritan Health Center"
For my first project, I'm featuring the Fall-O-Ween stamp set.
For this Halloween card, I used paper from DCWV's Ghosts and Goblins Stack and Cloud 9. The trick-or-treaters are from Everyday Paper Dolls and I added googly eyes and attached them with foam tape. The twine is from The Twinery. The top quote just makes me laugh :)

For my second project, I'm featuring the Winter Wishes stamp set.
The paper is from My Mind's Eye Christmas Stack. I cut the jumping deer from Winter Wishes at 3". I used a Tim Holtz frame embossing folder for the background and Swiss Dots for the deer. The tag is a Spellbinders Nestability die. I inked all the edges with Tim Hotlz Distress Ink.

Stop back tomorrow and I will have a project posted on my blog with the Scripture Sayings stamp set!

Like your creations & as you know I've been a follower of your blog for some time. I cannot buy the stamps and esp with the % off would like to but my car battery died today and had to get a new battery to the tune of $129+ so that puts a crimp in the craft budget.
