The cover is decorated with a snowman from the Snowman Wishes set and a smaller scalloped rectangle that I ran through my cuttlebug in the snowflake embossing folder. I also used a large eyelet to give the hole for the ring a little extra sturdiness.

Fabric: ?? From my stash
Date Stitched: 2008
Date Finished: 9-23-2010
This is my travel project right now... Little House Needleworks' "Patience" thread pack. It's a "slowly but surely" stitch, since I only work on for a few minutes here and there.
Then I have my start on the Dimensions Gold Collection Christmas stocking for dd. I'm trying to work on this a little more regularly as I would really like to get this done by the end of November. I'm hoping to get some sort of a needlework stand soon, though, if I can save some money for it. My hands are starting to hurt again from stitching, which they haven't done for awhile, and I'm 5 hours away from my chiropractor instead of 30 minutes like I used to be, so I need to find a way to keep my wrists and shoulders less "stressed" once they've been adjusted.

Hello everyone! Welcome to the Paper Garden Garden Walk! We're celebrating today with lots of "treats" and no "tricks". :-) Have you been hopping along through the Paper Gardener blogs so far? If so, you'll be looking for my "treat"... Here it is - TWIZZLERS.
Be sure to collect all the "treat" words (with the designer's name!) and send them in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight on Wednesday, September 22nd, to be entered in the draw to win some Eat Cake Graphics stamps!!
Speaking of Eat Cake Graphics, my little tag is made with one of their stamps as well! Cathy has them in sets and this one is from Pumpkin Pals. I filled a clear 3" square box with 2 packages of Peanut Butter M&M's (which will probably get eaten before I give them away!! LOL!) and tied them with a Willow organdy bow, wrapped with Papaya grosgrain ribbon to attach the tag. The dp is from the Apple Cider pack, and the sentiment is from the TagLines set. I love that set!!!
Thank you so much for stopping by! Now off you go to finish up the garden tour guide list! Hope you find some "Boo"tiful ideas.....

Today's card is just a simple one that uses the SCS sketch for the week. I used some designer paper from Me and My Big Ideas to help me choose my colors and then I colored a cute Jack 'o Lantern from the SNSS clear set "Sweet Pumpkin" for the main image. Isn't that a great sentiment?? I'll use it for a lot more than pumpkins, I'm thinking, and it's just one of a number in the set. Be sure to stop by the store and see the other fun choices for your autumn and winter crafting. Can you believe that Christmas stuff is already coming out in the stores?? Yikes!! I'd better get busy!
Thanks for stopping by, and have a blessed day!

Here's a quick way to decorate the inside of the card, using one of the digital sentiments in the set.

I pulled out my newly released clear set called A Cocoa Kind of Christmas for the sentiment, and used the Cheese for Cocoa digi as well. I actually colored this with copics from the class boxes at Copic certification a few weekends ago, so I'm not exactly sure of the colors. I'm sure that they are written down somewhere, cuz I loved the color combo!! :-)
