I am getting addicted to the Washi Tape! They are just fun to play with and mix and match. I really love how they make it easy to “fill in” anywhere your design “needs something”.  For a smaller image like this, they are the perfect background. I handcut the little bats from another image in the Halloween Bash set. I love the little bat image and have used it on several projects. The tombstone background is a Windows framelit piece that has 3 of the sides cut down.

This card is done with the new photopolymer set called Another Thank You. I embossed the thank you image and then stamped the leaves. I trimmed the edges of the burlap ribbon to give it a different look. I also used some of the trimmed strands to  add to the wispy fall look.

Another Thank You

I finished off the bow with an antique brad and held the leaves in place with little copper safety pins. Bring on the fall weather!

Mystery Hostess Event!

Thankful Thursdays is a great reason to kick off a Mystery Hostess event using the new Hostess code! You can place orders in the online store and link to a particular workshop. Your order placed in the online store will ship immediately, but the workshop can be held open all month. You could take advantage of each Thursday’s special and possibly earn Hostess rewards for the event as well! Each time you place an order this month you will entered in the drawing for the hostess rewards. This workshop will also be eligible for the extra hostess benefits!
It is really easy to order in the online store.

Here is the Hostess code for this event


Enter this code when you place your order in My Online Store. There is a hostess code box at the bottom of the page to enter it.There is a minimum shipping charge in the online store. You can still place orders by email, but I won’t be able to add them to this particular Mystery Hostess event because of the one day specials and I would have to hold the order till the end of the month. If you have any trouble ordering in the online store, just call me and I’ll help you through it.

Good luck on being the next Mystery Hostess!
