As my chicks grow...

And as I find more time to get creative, I thought I would share some of my creations, as well as my time with others. Hopefully I will make new friendships and create lasting bonds over paper, adhesive, and embellishments. So sit back, relax, and let's share...have a cup of coffee, or tea, or in my case a and let's just have a blast creating, finding new projects to make together, and gathering our supplies for future endeavors!

Harvest/Halloween Blog Hop with The Robin's Nest Design Team

I am so glad you could join us for our Harvest/Halloween Blog Hop with The Robin's Nest Design Team!!!
You should have gotten here from Tenny Kusuma
Here is a list of all the blogs that are in the line up! If you didn't get here from Tenny's Blog, please, go back and start at the beginning at Robin's Nest Blog . This is VERY important, as you need to hop to and comment on every blog to be eligible for BLOG CANDY!!! There is LOTS of candy to be given away, so please, please, hop along with us.
For my project I did a place card...thinking of Thanksgiving already. I love the smells, sounds, and getting together of family that holiday brings!

I used the Halloween Glitter swirl card stock to make the place card. Turned a piece over and used the plain orange side to write the name on. I stamped a man's head from VivaLasVegaStamps with VersaMark Ink and chalked over it.

Attached Orange dew drops from the Summer dew drops set. Folded it in half and it is done! I will be making 10 more for our dinner...check back closer to Thanksgiving for the rest!!! From here you need to go to Michelle's blog . Thank you so much for hopping with us today!!! And, remember, comment on every blog for a chance at candy..we are each offering some at EVERY stop!!!
