Happy Wednesday!

Hope everyone is having a great week. Just a quick post today to show you a fun, easy Halloween treat. This is just a larger scale version of a nugget box. The nugget wraps are just mailing labels that I stamped with the candy corn background from DRS Designs. I stamped them in orange and colored and glittered them. The main image is one of the new Halloween releases from DRS Designs. I colored and embellished it and glued the wrap so that it fit snugly around the box. The box is something I bought at my local scrapbook store. The spiders, bats and pumpkin are die cuts.

Hope you all have a terrific day! Thanks for stopping by!

Another blog award!

Remember last week when I said I would pass on this beautiful blog award, well in the meantime, I was given this award again, this time from my wonderfully talent friend Vicki! Vicki and I are on 2 DT's together and she is a fabulous stamper! Thanks for the award Vicki, you inspire me too!
I just love this picture. Isn't that butterfly just beautiful! Not sure what it is about butterflies, but I just love them. In fact, I just bought the new butterfly clear stamp from Basic Grey, I can't wait to get it inked up! So anyway...back to the award...
I just feel so blessed to have gotten this award twice and I'd love to pass it on to a few of my favorite bloggers who definitely inspire me:

Kisa Peters -Kisa's Paper Cuts - Kisa was one of the very first people I met on splitcoast several years ago. I can't tell you how blessed I am to have her as a friend. She is one of my best friends and she also happens to be a phenominal stamper. She inspires me on a daily basis!

Dawn McVey - My Favorite Things - I met Dawn through a thread on SCS. I am so glad I found her blog so many months ago...her talent is unbelieveable. Not only is her blog filled with gorgeous cards, it is also filled with wonderful stories and gorgeous photos. I have laughed and cried many times reading her blog. I still think about her treadmill story every single time I'm walking on mine. She (and her dh Bart) inspire me on a daily basis!

Lynn Mercurio - Stamperosity - I met Lynn in the Wish RAK group on SCS. I am so glad I clicked on her blog link to check it one time. I have been a dedicated follower of her blog for some time. She is such a kind and generous person and her work is incredible! Thanks for inspiring me!

Nessy - Nessy's Notes - Vanessa is one of my SBS-13 sisters. She is one amazing stamper. I am amazed every day at her beautiful coloring and adorable cards. Not to mention the fact that she makes more cards than anyone I know.

Jennifer - Glitter in My Hair - Jen and I met on SCS but turns out we live in the same town (or at least we did until she moved a few miles east, LOL). She is a great stamper and a great friend. Our occasional stamp nights at Archivers are the best. Thanks for inspiring!

For all of you who leave me comments inspire me too!

I could keep typing all day but unfortunately time just doesn't allow...

I hope you all have an inspiring day! I have a cute Halloween project to show you tomorrow so please stop back!
