Halloween Wall Hanging

Using drink coasters from Outback Steakhouse (no, I didn't steal them), I made this fun and CUTE wall hanging using the ADORABLE Hooligans Level 2 Embellishments!

I used background and texture paper from the Hooligans Level 2 Paper Packet to cover the coasters and attached them with some hemp!  I have these cute thing hanging on my wall and I love it!  I hope you do too!

NEW Circle Cards!

One of our new products are "Circle Cards" - available in both Colonial White and White Daisy.  Our awesome "Wishes" how-to program has several designs for circle cards and now you have bases to work with!

Last night I had my Card Club where we made these four cards and a cute hanger which I will post tomorrow (have to spread out my creations, you know).  :0)  These cards were a big hit with my club members and I hope you like them too!

Altered Jars

I purchased these plain jars and used some of our Rub-Ons to decorate them.  This is just the front view but there are various rub-ons around the four sides of the jar. 

I put colored tissue paper inside the jar for ease of seeing the decorations and figured preferred candy (or other items) could be put inside for the recipient.  Of course, I had to make a coordinating card! 

This one, of course, had a "wintery" them.

This was just more general and a spring/summery theme.

Cowboys 50th Anniversary

Corey and I had to make the opening day homegame for the 50th season of the Cowboys.  We set out early to have a yummy breakfast at Cracker Barrel and then made our way to the stadium to get a great spot in the Party Pass section! 

The weather was beautiful, the atmosphere great...but they lost...to the Bears!  There was a pretty good Bear representation in the stands so they did quite a bit of trash-talking.  While it was an enjoyable time it would have been even better had they won.  In any case, here are a few photos from the day.


And this is a photo (without having to zoom in) of Hall of Famer, Tony Dorsett!  He was exiting the stadium when we were - a few minutes before the end of the game.  I was going to ask him for a photo op but this one girl was ALL OVER HIM!  I think she scared him away and so I missed my opportunity!  It was great to see him though!

Boo!

I hope you have had a chance to look at the NEW Autumn/Winter Idea Book!  It is absolutely fabulous and is probably my favorite in awhile - and I always love every issue!  You can view it online but it's even better in person!  If you would like a hard copy, please email me with your request and I am happy to oblige.  It is adorned in the beautiful Magnifique paper pack - absolutely beautiful!
I fell in love with the NEW Hooligans Level 2 Paper packet and Hooligans Level 2 Assortment (a.k.a. "The Fuzzy Monsters") the minute I saw them and had fun making these Clear Cards!  We had the square and scalloped Clear Cards, released in the last Idea Book, but the new 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 cards (standard-size) are new with this issue!  I did not do any stamping on these cards but instead used the fun paper, that has various monster eyes and sayings on it, to create the sentiments.  I hope you like these as much as I do.  Thanks for stopping by and I would love to hear what you think of them!


Here are close-ups of the cards!
