Let’s start thinking Halloween!

School is back in session, it’s getting darker out earlier at night, and fall is definitely just around the corner.  So, it’s time to think about Halloween.  I’ve changed out my Candy Buffet at my Stampin’ Studio where I hold all of my classes.  I got Halloween inspired candy and got out my fall leaves and pumpkins.  I’ll have to get a photo to share with you.  So here is a fun Halloween card I made with minimum supplies.

Deck the Halls

Okay, I promise this is that last Christmas card for a little while.  I just had so much fun with the cards we made at my Christmas Card Class last week, I wanted to share them with you.  This one also uses the Season of Style DSP Pack like the other three cards did.  Each participant got to take home all of the DSP that was left over, so they’ve got plenty to be creative with or to make more of the ones we made at class.  If you want to get a head start on your Christmas cards this year, then you should sign up for my next Christmas Card class which is scheduled on Wednesday, September 25th.  At that class everyone will get a package of the Frosted Finishes Embellishments,(those babies are beautiful).
