Halloween and Birthday Cards

Hello Stampers and fellow Paper Crafters!

I've been busy, busy for the past couple of months not only making all my Craft Fair Goodies (I will be sharing real soon I promise!) but also helping out a friend who just moved her little bakery to our area's largest shopping community! I love baking and candy making so this is right up my alley and I am enjoying it so much! With that said, I have had little time to post to my blog but believe me "you've" been on my mind.  :O)

For right now though I wanted to share the Halloween Favor Bags I gave out to my Nephews and the Neighborhood children this year and a few cards I made lately for Birthday's. First up is the Birthday cards I made for my Hubby and my Step Daughter Jennifer.  Both are using punch art Hippo's I made using the SU Owl Builder Punch...they're so cute!

Next I wanted to share my Grandson Peyton's card.  He is growing up so fast and turns 13 this year, I can't believe it!  Since he plays Football and is going to the 2013 Gatlinburg Thanksgiving Bowl in TN at the end of this month (so excited for him and his team!), I thought I would make a card using the colors of his uniform for the Bowl and throw in a little of the color from his regular uniforms and here's what I came up with:

Sweet!!! (Just like Peyton) The colors for the tournament are green and white but I also threw in a couple of orange stars to represent his regular green and orange colors.  Punches used were Large Heart Punch, 1 3/8 Circle and xtra lg Oval.  The face stamp is from the Everyday Character Faces from Peachy Keen, I love the mean looking one for this player.  hehe

Next I'm going to share the Favor Bags, the first batch I made was very time consuming and after I made about 8 of them it hit me WHY am I putting all this time (which I really didn't have) into little favor bags that will end up on the floorboard of the cars within seconds of I rethought the bags and came up with the second version, still cute as a button but a lot simpler!  Sorry no time to list supplies used but email me and I'll share!

Ok, until next time folks, Happy Stampin!
