HANNA SNEAK PEEK: Trick or Treat Mini Set

Happy WEDNESDAY! We have made it through half of the week! WOOHOO! Ooh, and I have so far avoided doing laundry! *giggles*

So I had been seeing these peppermint patty holders around SCS, and so I decided to make one, but I decided to make mine the size for a large peppermint patty (because lets face it, I am addicted to chocolate, top of the list, york patties and junior mints, and THEN PB M&M's). The paper I used measured 4 x 8 inches to start. I made it in the same style as this box. Hope that helps any of you who are going to attempt this.

Anyway, it did not take too much time and came together well. I really like the results and I think I might figure out a way to add a ribbon strap so I can put these on a few of my friends doors as a little surprise treat at Halloween! Anyway, hope you are enjoying all the samples from the new sets that the design team has been creating for you! I will upload a picture of the inside of this a little later today. (It is after midnight right now and the colors would be all funky if I tried right now.

I made this card as part of the sketch challenge on Splitcoaststampers (SC187). I absolutely LOVE the sketch today! It is so easy to work with. I wanted to make another card using this Trick or Treat Mini set (available Thursday after the release party), so I played around with this scary bat image and made him work! He is colored with spica glitter pen (black on the outline and clear on the inside) which I added after I watercolored him in using going grey ink in layers. He is SO glittery in real life (I wish you could see him!)

Hello,

Sorry to post here but I couldn't find an email address for you. I received a blog update from you a few days ago titled Blurfering (I believe that is how you spell it) it had links to home made baby burp clothes etc. For some reason it's saying that the blog post is no longer available. Would you be abel to give me those links that you posted, or maybe you could re-post it?

Thanks and I love your blog!
