So, I am off to my SILs to barbecue and watch the guys shoot clay pigeons in preparation for the start of dove season next weekend! I am not a huge fan of hunting, but my husband loves it, grew up doing it, and is thrilled to get to hunt with his dad again so who am I to rain on his parade! So, I will quietly eat my bratwurst and think happy stampin' thoughts - LOL! Until tomorrow, enjoy the rest of your weekend! Smooches!

HALLOWEEN TAG SWAP
Hi all!! WOW!! I have been so busy this weekend playing with all my new Stampin' Up! toys, I have tons to share, but tomorrow is when I will begin showing what I have been up to with my new Big Shot! Today I want to share these cute little Halloween tags I made for a recent swap I participated in over at the Coconut Scrapshop - too fun!! There are all kinds of fun swaps including an Halloween ATC swap that is still open if you are interested! So, I made a dozen or so of these little tags and everything is Stampin' Up! except the dp along the bottom which is imaginesce, isn't it cute??!! I had not received any of my dp yet from the new catty, but this fit in nicely with my theme and hey, I love it!! The stamp set is Batty for You, which is totally cute and perfect for Halloween cards! And, I used some of my fave punches, like the new Scallop Edge Punch and of course my Circle Scallop punch which works so well with my other Circle Punches because they all nest together perfectly! And, no project would be complete without my Jumbo eyelets, I just love them!! I mean, I got three pieces of ribbon threaded through that baby, lol! I had great fun with these - see my boogly eyes?? No, they are not Stampin' Up! either, I don't know who makes them, I just have a huge container full and thought they would be cute!! And, Jen loved them so that is all that mattered to me *wink* Speaking of Jen, she has a fabulous offer going on right now at Coconuts - if you join her monthly kit club, she is giving a free album (worth $25) away for FREE!!!
