Halloween Lunch Surprise

Happy Friday & almost Halloween!!  My daughter had her class party today.  She was very excited to dress up and see all of her friends.  I usually try to help out at her parties... but today provided a conflict... so I made her a little Halloween card with some Reeses peanut butter cups inside to stick in her lunch as a surprise and sort of a "Sorry I couldn't be there today." 
Here is the card I made (at midnight last night.)  Sort of appropriate that the Night Sky was on my mind.
Very easy card to make.  I needed it to be quick.
I am entering it into the Halloween Challenge # 22 over at

Paper:  All Stampin' Up Cardstock.  Would like to highlight that the background or "Night Sky" is Concord Crush.  This is one of the new IN colors that I absolutely love.
Stamps:  Grateful Greetings from SU.
Circle Punches from SU used for pumpkins and moon.  I hand drew the moon face.  Hand cut the stems, leaves and grassy hills.

Veggie Garden Scrap Layout

This is a scrapbook layout of my Husband's vegetable garden that he planted this summer.  It was his first stab at a new hobby... and it turned out great.  It was fun to be able to just go to our backyard and pick whatever we needed for our meal that night.  The kids enjoyed seeing everything get bigger as the days went by.  It also helped get them interested in eating a few of these creations.  :-)
I am entering this to a challenge over on Paula's blog... "More than Favors"... as she challenged us to do a FRUIT or VEGGIE project. 
"Perfect" I said. 
I used all Stampin' Up Cardstock and Cricut Cartridges "Freshly Picked" "My Community" (for the grass) and "Walk in my Garden."
I designed the planting box myself. (hand cut)

Thanks for looking!!

Baptism Card

Oh where does the time go?  It's been almost a month since I've actually finished a creation that I have started.  I recently received a few winning goodies from some blog hops and got the bug to use them in some projects.  It's always fun to get new things... and even better to actually USE them. 
So... here is a card that I made for my Niece who just had her baptismal ceremony this past Sunday.  She lives a few States away, so the gift and card will be a tad late.  (Story of my life) 
This is a pattern of a ONESIE that I found on-line.  The creator is Kimberley Morris.  I improvised the pattern a bit to look more like a gown or dress since my Niece is 18 months old.  The rest of the card is my own creation / imagination.  :-)
