An arrangement of Halloween cookies gave me the design inspiration to make this card!  Hee hee!

BOO2

HOW TO MAKE A HALLOWEEN GUY:  1) Punch a 1-3/4" Circle from Garden Green Card Stock.  2) Cut a few 1/2" strips from Whisper White Card Stock.  3) Score a line down the middle of each white strip. <I did that in order to match the cookie bandages.>  4) Run SNAIL Adhesive on the back side of each white strip.  5) Adhere the strips, one-by-one, on top of the green circle, leaving space for eyes and mouth. 6) With Paper Snips, cut the excess white bandages from around the edge of the green guy's face.  7) Wrap Baker'sTwine around a short craft stick.  8) Position his face on the craft stick.  9) Attach to card with Stampin' Dimensionals and Glue Dots. 10) Embellish with Googlie Eyes.

INDIAN SUMMER...

Here in the Pacific Northwest, we love it when the weather is warm and beautiful during September and October... an Indian Summer. The temperature was in the 50's during the night, and today it is expected to be in the low 90's.  Perfect weather to enjoy the SUNFLOWERS! 

Sunflower

I had planned to do a little Sunflower Tutorial, but I'm in California right now, so will do that in a few days when I return home to Washington State!  The tutorial is short and sweet, with emphasis on sweet.  Stay tuned!

LIFETIME OF HAPPINESS...

I love surfing the web and looking at all the creative cards made by people around the globe. The variety of design-styles always intrigue and encourage me to expand my own style.  But here I go again, making a card that resembles many of the others I've made before... Oh well, there's always tomorrow!

Wishing You...

Never-the-less, it was fun using the square punch on this one, and I always receive a lifetime of happiness making each and every card...
