Birthday Owl

This card was created using the Create a Critter Cricut Cartridge.  The owl was cut at 5.5".  All the cardstock is from Stampin' Up and the color combo's are Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise and Pacific Point!  All edges were inked with coordinating ink.  The branch was cut from the Cricut Cartridge Hoot 'n Holler at 3.24",  I only used 3 of the 4 layers, and the colors used there are Early Espresso, Wild Wasabi and Garden Green.

The background is Daffodil Delight and was embossed using the Cuttlebug folder D'vine Swirl.  I then inked the embossing with a Daffodil Delight ink dauber.

The sentiment on the inside of the card is from the Pink By Design Set You're a Hoot!  I have attached a link where I bought mine, if you're interested!

Halloween Treat Bags

Wow!!!  It has been forever!  Life suddenly got VERY busy!  I thought with two of my three children in school things would slow down...not so!  I hope winter will bring a slower pace (yeah right!).  My husband and I also took a trip back east to Rhode Island, just the two of us, it was soooo fun.  It was business for him, but I got to play!!!

It felt so good to get back to crafting!  I made some Halloween treat bags to take around to a few ladies that I go to church with, and here they are!

I tried to throw these together quick late last night, but I must be out of practice because it was not quick!!!  But I enjoyed every minute!  The patterned paper is from DCWV Fall Glitter stack and the rest of the paper is scraps from my stash.  The cute candy corn is from Paper Piecings by Nikki and was cut on my Silhouette at 3".  I tried to make the cute faces like Nikki's but it was a NO go!  I finally ended up using my Peachy Keen Stamps - The Cornies 1 1/8".  I also used My Pink Stampers Happiest Moments stamp set for the "Happy Halloween" sentiment.

Here they all are together!!!  I used Candy Corn, Indian Corn and 
Caramel Apple Taffy!!!  Happy Halloween!!
