Hey everyone!  TGIF!!!  Ready for a great weekend....and it's supposed to get a wee bit warmer again....wahoo!!

I'm sharing a little sneak of something I "cooked up" over at The Rubber Cafe':



If you want to see the entire card, and would love directions to make it.....stop on by The Rubber Cafe' blog HERE.

It's also Favorite Things Friday (FTF) over at Scrap It Girl.  We are sharing some of our favorite fall projects, and we'd love to see yours!  Link up over there, and share with us!

My favorite is a fall wall hanging I created a year ago at a crop and won a prize for:




It's made with LYB Acorn Hollow papers and chip.  Love the colors in this--I can't get enough of home decor altered item projects!

Thanks for stoppin' by today....always more inspiration to save for another day.....see you soon!

Joyful Banner

If you aren't familiar with Unique Laser Designs.....you should be!!  They sell amazing laser cut wood, chipboard and cork designs, with so many options to choose from!

One of my favorites is their banners.  You can choose shape, and what you'd like to spell out....you don't have to buy a pre-fab kit....love that!

Here is a little sneak of a project I have up over there today.....I used the adorable Doodlebug Design Santa Express collection:


I also used Doodlebug twine, washi, Sprinkles and stickers. 

Want to see the finished project?  Pop over to the ULD blog HERE.

Graveyard Goodies Home Decor

Well, you know I'm a Halloween crafter.....I really love any and all Halloween home decor!  So this piece I created for my last Guest Designer post over at Trendy Twine was so much fun!  They are spotlighting their amazing Halloween twines, and this project uses Orange Licorice twine.  I really think it makes the project "pop"!!


A look at the lid--I started by inking the edges, covering with the Teresa Collins Masquerade Party paper, and then sanding and inking the edges:
 

And here it is all decorated up with chipboard, cut outs and Orange Licorice Trendy Twine:



Here's a closer look at how I used the twine as accents...and also as a border around the washi tape on the lid:



The inside of this treat box is filled with little goodie bags tied up with more yummy Orange Licorice twine:





Thanks for stoppin' by today.....and stop over to the Trendy Twine site to check out their amazing selection of twine!
