Tweets to you

Lately, I've been using a lot of green. Not sure why but there's a lot of green scraps in one of my piles. I made this card Saturday morning right before running out the door to go to my make & take at the store. The background is the new Sizzix spring set textured impressions embossing folder. And tweety is from the baby collection.
I like how just adding a textured background adds to the card. And for all you card makers out there, Sizzix has a new machine called the Texture Boutique. You can texturize all your background papers to make your cards. It's a very affordable machine and very portable to take with you anywhere if you just want to make cards.This is what we had for our make & take at the store this past Saturday. It was a real easy triangle box that you can put candy kisses or hersheys nuggets in. We used Dandelion stamps to decorate the box. Super cute to give treats for Halloween.
Well, once again Cheri from Sizzix will be in town and we will be doing make & takes at all the Ben Franklin Craft stores on Oahu. We will be in Hilo for their paper party this coming Saturday, September 26th. If you live in Hilo, hope to see you there!
Thanks for stopping by today and have a great Monday!!!

Cheryl, I love the Halloween cards you presented on the Joy of Crafting. Funny how we had similar ideas. Are you planning to use the triangular box to make a giant candy corn piece? That's what I did. I'll post it later.

Hey, I forgot to tell you I'm following your blog. I saw it through Teri's. And I actually spoke to you today at J's. (I was buying the snowflake border punch by Martha Stewart) I tried it, it punches but I don't know how to make it connect when you punch again...does Cliff know how to do it? Because that was the first time I saw you there. thanks!
