10/22 RAK's that Made My Day!!

My bloggin friend, Nancy Riley, surprised mw with this sweet card. I have it propped up by my computer and I'm not sure I'll ever get tired of looking at it!! Thank YOU, Nancy . . . you are something sweet and I'm so glad we stampin' friends! Nancy has a wonderful blog . . . hop on over and check it out. She is so talented and I am always checking out her creations for ideas.


Isn't this the cutest pumpkin? My customer and friend, CindySue Eastenson, created this sweet treat box for me filled with candy corn and roasted peanuts. My kids gobbled it up in no time. She told me that she cut this template at a scrapbooking store. How fun! Thanks, CindySue!
And then, if the pumpkin wasn't enough, CindySue pulled another surprise out of her craftin' tote! And, this one I didn't share quite as willingly with my kiddos!! lol! 16 fabulous mints, beautifully displayed in an acrylic box. She told me she used Martha Stewart Halloween stickers to decorate each mint. You are seriously spoilin' me, CindySue!! Thank YOU!!
And, being the thrifty, crafty person that I am, I saved all of those little stickers off the top of my mints and made 14 super cute Halloween cards!! Two stickers got lost along the way . . . so sad. Look at the second life they could have had!!
.
Supplies I used to create my thrifty Halloween cards:
.
Stamps: All Holidays
Paper: Glorious Green, Basic Black, retired DSP called Jersy Shore
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Martha Stewart stickers, 1 3/4" Circle Punch

WOW! Lucky you to receive a card from Nancy! And what a gorgeous card it is....she has such a great style, doesn't she? And such cute goodies from your friend, too. And you are so clever to recycle them!
Thanks also for your thoughts & prayers for Dana. A close call but God was good.

{{{Kay}}} Glad you liked the card! THANK YOU so much for saying those really nice things, and for the link! You're THE BEST!

CindySue's gifts are AWESOME! Candy Corn with Roasted Peanuts is my favorite Fall snack ... it's addicting!

Love your recycled cards ... you think of everything!

Hi Kay. I like what you did with the mint toppers! I've got some little "Christmas" coasters that may turn into Christmas cards! They are about the same size as the mint toppers! I guess I could even take CindySue's idea and put them on mints but I have no pretty box! Have a great day!
These gifts are so wonderful aren't stampers/crafters generous people. You are a true crafter reusing those stickers good job I love your cards. TFS
