Playin' with the Freaks!

Ohhhh ... ALL the goodness!!! Holy COW!!! I have FINALLY had a chance to play with my new Holiday Catalog "preview" goodies!!! To be honest, I am having a HARD time wrapping my brain around doing any sort of "fall" creations. But, since it it is my absoLUTE favorite time of the year, it really didn't take me too long to get into the groove. And I am happy to report that my BFF Jan Tinklenberg has joined the ranks of the Control Freaks once again!!! (Did you SEE what she MADE???) Choirs of angels sing (or at least I DO!) to have her back amongst us once again!

I hate to even ADMIT that I have felt a TEENY-TINY bit of fall in the air ... not very much, mind you, but the evenings HAVE been cooler (as well as the mornings) by at least a few degrees!!! I cannot WAIT for the seasons to change, though ... running through the canyon in the cool temperatures with the colors and SMELLS of fall??? Just about as close to a slice of HEAVEN as you can GET!

Stamps: Acorny Thank You, Gorgeous Grunge
Paper: Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Mossy Meadow, Very Vanilla
Ink: Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Mossy Meadow
Accessories: Mini Treat Bag Thinlits (for Mossy Meadow border), Bitty Banners Thinlits, Acorn Builder Punch, Natural Chevron Ribbon, Venetian Crochet Trim, Very Vanilla Thick Bakers Twine, Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Mini Stapler

OHMYHALLOWEEN!!! Y'all KNOW it just so happens to be my very most FAVORITIST time of year. (I have a handful of homemade costumes that I've made over the years for MYSELF to prove it! And enough Halloween decor to decorate my house - inside and out - a couple of times over!!)

So this is actually a CARD and not a TREAT bag! Just pull on the little ribbon at the top and the card inside is blank except for the skelly face (that's what my daughter calls skeletons ... and it has kind of grown on me!)! The little bones are attached to the outside front of the "treat bag" .. stinkin' cute, right???
