Happy Friday

Helllllllllloooooooooo.... I hope you all had a wonderful week and it's even better now that it's FRIDAY !!! YIPEE... anyone have fun plans for the weekend? Here in the great NE Mr. Weatherman is predicting Rain Rain Rain.. So I hope that means a little stamping, maybe I'll make some soup and Oh don't forget working on Sunday towards my mandatory OT for next week (that one's a YACK !!!)

I've been trying to post an adorable card (at least I think so) all week but my camera is acting up. It really works best when there's direct sunlight and well, since it's been gloomy and doomy most of this week that hasn't worked so well.. I'm hoping to get a new camera for Christmas.

Next Saturday is the big day I've been looking forward to in E. Syracuse. It's the CNY SCS get together. We need a name badge and if we'd like we can donate a gift for the gift swap. Here's what I made.

My name tag uses...
Card Stock.. Only Orange, Pixie Pink, Green Galore
Ink.. None but I did use my Wal-mart rub-ons
Stickers.. These too are from Wal-mart
Accessories.. clear luggage tag, misc ribbons
the dots were made with misc. SUP circle punches that I then ran through my xyron machine.

Even though I'm not at the 'creepy table' (inside joke... my CNY friends know exactly what I'm talking about.. ) I tried to be creepy none~the~ less..

Now for my give away.. I actually made a couple of these as gifts. I found these 'candy corn' scented mason jar candles at Jo-Anns last week and I thought they would be perfect.

Stamps.. Haunting Halloween, Boogie Eyes & Tags so much ~ All are SUP..
Card Stock... pumpkin pie, very vanilla, (last years) SUP designer series paper
Ink... Black Stazon, Copic markers in.. olive green, brown, blush, purple, yellow, grey & orange
Accessories.. Black grosgrain ribbon & orange/ cream may arts ribbon, Martha Stewart 'putty' twill ribbon, black twine
Punches... Nestabilities Rectangle scalloped, Mega groovy circle scalloped & my SUP large and small tag punches
Everything was adhered with this awesome sticky tape I purchased from Taylored Expressions a while back.

I hope whom ever wins this will enjoy it. I know I had a lot of fun putting it together.
Here's hoping you all have a fun, dry weekend filled with lots of stamping..
PS.. Theresa.. GET off the computer and GET STAMPING !!! Your running out of swap time..

I recently realized how good candy corn is!! When I was young I never liked them and just retyed them again this year. Now I can't get enough!! I love this candle, you did a wonderful job. Could you tell me how you adhere your paper when altering. What product do you use?
