So now onto my hop project!

I absolutely LOVE fall. I really don't get Fall where I live, but I like the few weeks of cool weather before the rainy season is here. The leaves only change from green to brown so I dont get to experience the vibrant yellows, oranges, and reds! I need to convince hubby to find a job on the East Coast or Northwest!

My most favorite thing about fall is taking my children to the pumpkin patch I went to when I grew up! We go to Bate's Nut Farm and spend an entire day with hayrides, corn mazes, face painting, rock climbling, bouncy houses, pony rides, petting zoos, and pumpkin picking! I have to say that this last year was my most favorite. We had four generations with us and it was a blast! One of the things I love to eat and wait for the entire year is a caramel or candied apple. I just love them and to me, that is Fall in my tummy!

So here are the caramel and candy apples I made.

I used the Puffy Boxes SVG Collection and the Blood Border to create these Caramel and Candy apple gift boxes. I used twigs from a tree that a small tornado dug up from a friends horse ranch.

I used the DCWV's The Homemade Christmas Stack for all the apples! I just LOVE this stack and hope I can find it over the Christmas season again!

I used Co'ordinations Color Core Cardstock for the Caramel and Candy atop the apples. For the Caramel I used Chocolate Mousse and for the Candy I used Redbud.

I hot glued the twigs ontop onf the closure of the box and tied a simple satin and grossgrain ribbon aroudn the base of the twig for a simple embellishment.

I just loved how they turned out and I had actually asked my friend Tonya if she knew what they were and she did. I knew what they were, I just wanted to make sure I wasn't the only one! ;)

Now, what is a blog hop without BlOg CaNdY?

Each of the Design Team members are giving away a gift card to the shop on their blog post for the weekend.

Bat Wings, Toads Lips, and Eyes of Newt

Hello everyone. I decided to do a design team project today. I really enjoyed doing this project and think you will have fun if you decide to make some for yourself!

I created witches wands. I used a 1/4 inch dowell and cut it into three 12" pieces. I took the Rosette and Spider Web Rosette from the banner in the Happy Haunt Party Kit. I used DCWV midnight spell paper stack and used Celebrate It ribbon to wrap the dowels, then twine from, The Twinery to wrap over the dowells.

I added some eye catching goodness to the tops of the wands using some orange ball trim, orange tulle, two buttons and a googly eye from the Bo Bunny Boo Button collection. I then dangled a felt bat from Halloween Twine from Annie's Paper Boutique. I inked all edges using my black colorbox ink. I added the spider from the Happy Haunt collection to the center of one of the webs.

This spider web rosette is reversible and looks great either way you decide to fold it.

Thanks for looking and be sure to leave some love. If you are not a follower yet, I invite you to follow me if you would like to! :)

Be sure to go like SVG Attic on Facebook. You can also follow us on Twitter, Pinterest, and YouTube.

Have a crafty day!

First Market Street Stamp Challenge!

This morning I was up early and had all of the dogs fed and there were no children home. Grandma rescued me this weekend! Thanks Grandma! :)

I am a very new fan to Market Street Stamps and I have to tell you how much I love them. These stamps are cut so clean and crisp you get a perfect stamp everytime. I purchased their Autumn Greetings and Comforting Florals stamps and received them last week. I have made several cards using these stamps and I really like them!

This is the sketch for the challenge:

Here is the card I came up with! I just love it! :)

I used Market Street Stamp's Autumn Greetings stamp set, Trendy Twine's Chocolate Truffle Twine, and Timeless Twine's Orange twine. I used the cut outs from my Tent Cards SVG Collection over at SVG Attic.

Thanks for stopping by and lookin! Have a crafty day!
