Another Happy Mail Day

When I returned home on Wednesday (also went to a Halloween luncheon at the Sr. Ctr. I do cards at) and went thru the mail, I had a card from my cousin Deb (she sent me the decorated CD cases in a previous post - forgot to mention that also included a small Stampin' Up! order) along with her payment for her order. Here is the gorgeous card she sent. This card is using the Stipple Butterfly stamp (retired).

More Halloween Fancy Favor boxes

This past Wednesday my Red Hat Scarlet Sophisticate group went to the Bavarian Chef German Restaurant for dinner. It was delicious, but still not as good as my favorite German restaurant in Ft. worth - Edelweiss. They have spoiled me for all others, I think! Anyway, I made more of the candy wrapper treats (pictured in previous post) for the ladies and these with the fancy favor box and Wicked Cool stamp set for Queen Jeri and Vice-Queen Fran.
Here are a few pictures of the ladies in their regalia.

Stamping With Style Team Meeting

On Sat. I went to my upline, Christina's team meeting. Had a great time. Got there late, so I only go one of the make-n-takes done. It was with the Bingo card and Jolly Bingo Bits set and we then played Bingo for some great prizes. I didn't win anything - Boo Hoo! I won't show mine as I messed it up and it didn't look too good. (I was trying to hurry, so I could do another make-n-take, but that didn't happen). Had a great time, lots of great info and samples and of course, food.
Here is my swap. I used the "thumping" technique on it for the leaves.

Here are the swaps I received in exchange for mine - Aren't they lovely!

Halloween is Quickly Approaching

I have been busy since last week cutting, decorating and filling these little candy wrappers (the ones in the background). They are made using the new Candy Wrapper die from Stampin' Up! One of my best friends and customers got it and let me play with it first (isn't she wonderful). I ended up cutting out 60 of them, before I gave it to her. So, I decided to put them together and give them to each of my red hat groups when we got together this month. I used "Batty for You" and "Wicked Cool" stamp sets to decorate them. The first group was my Busy Bee group and we got together last week for a luncheon at one of the members house (with a Halloween theme) and had a great time playing Bingo and eating some little monster sandwiches (pictured below as they were sooooo darn cute). I didn't get pictures of the treats boxes I made last week, the ones pictured below are for my Sweet Magnolia group tomorrow (but are the same). The little treat box in the front is made with the Stampin' Up! Fancy Favor Die and decorated using the "Wicked Cool" stamp set. I may have to breakdown and purchase the Candy Wrapper die, as I had so much fun making these and they are very simple. May make some for Christmas as well.

Aren't these little monster sandwiches adorable. They were yummy, too!
