BATTY FOR YOU....AND MORE CANDY!

Happy Hump Day all!!! I am soooo happy it's Wednesday.....because that means the last day of work for this week AND I get to leave to see my mom and sister, WHOOOHOOOO!!!! I am really looking forward to my short break and time away, I just know it will be fabulous!!! So, as promised I have another halloween card to share although not the one I originally planned. Why not, you ask??? Weeeeelllllll, my golden retriever decided that my sweet treats card was indeed sweet and HE ATE IT, UGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!! All I have left is the chewed up sweet treats cup and some really soggy card stock *sniff* I loved that card....that will teach me not to take a pic right away!!! Soooo, I have another to share that we made that night using the Batty for You stamp set which is such a favority for me. I just love it! And, I used the Big Shot Texture Plates as well - if you click on it, you can see the dots design on the Elegant Eggplant piece of card stock. And, to make the embossing pop even more, I too a sponge and sponged Elegant Eggplant ink all over the background as well!! I love how it looks!! Lots of fun colors on this one - all the colors of Halloween!! We had lots of fun making this card. Here is the recipe:
Card Recipe:
Paper - Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White card stock, Cast-a-Spell Designer Series Paper
Inks - Elegant Eggplant, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive classic inks
Stamps - Batty for You, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Accessories - Elegant Eggplant narrow grosgrain ribbon, Circle Scallop Punch, 13/8 inch circle punch, Modern label punch, Old Olive brads, white gel pen, Big Shot Texturz plates
Now, I am sure you are waiting for the next piece to the candy.....well, I have decided that tonight and tomorrow I will give you bigger pieces since I won't be posting while I am gone through the weekend(I will be back with a post on Monday). So, if you know me at all, you know that I LOVE LOVE LOVE butterflies, ladybugs, dragonflys, etc. I use them ALOT in my scrappin' and stamping and love all the different ones out there. Well, I decided to share some with the lucky winner and here they are - just check out all those fabulous embellies!!!! I decided to take a pic of these on their own, but they will be added to other goodies I have already shared. Now remember, to enter, you have to do three things - leave a comment ON THE POST AT THE TOP OF MY BLOG, sign in as a follower of my blog, and post a link to my blog on your own!! That's it - pretty easy!!! So, off to work now but I will be back to share a very special birthday set for a very special person in my life!!! See ya then and thanks SO MUCH for stopping by - you make my day!!!
