Trick or Treat

Hi all and thanks for stopping by today.  I cannot tell you how excited I am to be stamping again!  I have been extremely busy and went MIA on my blog, so perhaps an explanation is in order.

As most of you probably know, I work for My Favorite Things.  At the end of July, my family and I packed up our lives and moved across the country to Florida so I could be closer to MFT Land.  I now reside about 2 miles from the My Favorite Things Boutique and 2 houses from Kim, the owner of MFT.  As with any huge move, getting settled has been a challenge and stamping took a back seat to work and getting my family established at their new jobs and schools.  We are all very happy to be here and have enjoyed the perks of living near a vacation destination.  I have started teaching classes at the MFT Boutique and have enjoyed meeting new people and exploring our new area.  Things are starting to settle down for me and I am back at my stamp desk getting crafty, so I am excited to have something to share with you all.  Sorry for my absence and thanks for sticking around while I got my life in order.

Now, on to my crafty creations for today.  I couldn't resist jumping back in for Wednesday Stamp Club and today's sketch was a fun one!  

I couldn't stop at just a card and decided to make a little matching set with Lollipop Treat Die-namics and Stamp Set.

For my card, I used a sentiment from Spider Web Sentiments.  The dashes under the sentiment are from Lollipop Treat Stamp Set.  I used the Primitive Pumpkins Stamp Set and Primitive Pumpkins Trio Die-namics for the focal point.  They are perched on the Picket Fence, which has adorable "nail holes" in it.  LOVE that!  I accented one of the pumpkins with a Kraft Button and threaded it with Hemp Cord

The background was stamped with Distressed Diamonds.  I cut a Fishtail Flag and stamped it with the polka dot stamp from Lollipop Treat Stamp Set.

I tucked the Postage Stamp Border in under the Tangy Orange panel going down the card.

Here is a peek inside.

I couldn't wait to play with the new Lollipop Treat Die-namics and Stamp Set.  It is so quick and easy to come up with adorable gifts for friends, family, or even trick-or-treating neighbors!

The topper was created with the 1/4" Rosette and one of the included "buttons" in the Lollipop Treat Die-namics.

Here is a side view.  It accommodates a full-sized lollipop.

Here is a back view.  The container is held together with string of your choice through the button holes.  The lollipop stick goes between the two holes, in the string.

Want to play along?  Here is this week's sketch:

Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the MFT Blog and the MFT forum on SCS (look for the most recent WSC thread).  You'll need to upload your card in the SCS gallery using the keyword shown on the sketch.
