Witch Boot Treat Bag

Today I wanted to share another treat bag with you.  This time it's a witch boot.  I didn't fill it with candy because knowing my luck I would eat it all.  So to play it safe, I crimped a few strips of purple card stock and had them rest inside the boot.

I'm A Winner

Just wanted to thank Rhonda over at Decorate to Celebrate for choosing me as their winner for the Witch's Brew (Halloween Party - Part 1) challenge.  After receiving notification, I immediately contacted my Daughter and Granddaughter.  I wanted to let them know that their Kitty Cat Treat Bag had won a challenge.

Here is a picture of their reaction:

I think they were more excited then me.  I can't wait to receive this mini album.  So I can fill it up with my Granddaughter's first Halloween pictures.

Thanks again for picking me.  Have a wonderful Friday y'all!!!

Trick or Treat Cat Bag

Wow!!!  I'm simply falling behind this weekend.  It's been exciting around here. Our local hockey team (ICEDOGS - AWHL) had there first two home games this weekend.  We had one loss and our second game was a win in double over-time. First home win in two seasons.  Way to go guys!!!

Then yesterday we had a BBQ for them.  That of course lasted a couple of hours.

Then I had a date night with my husband.  We went to see Captain Phillips.  It was a little slow in the beginning, but by the end I had a few tears.  Overall great movie and I highly recommend going to see it.

Now, let's get into the real reason why we are visiting my blog.  Today's project is not a card.  Can you believe that?  It's a cat treat bag.  So let's take a look.

We had such a great time yesterday at the parade.  We were simply overwhelmed with the amount of people that showed up.  Enough that we ran out of candy.  So half way through the parade, we bought more candy from a local store on the parade route.  Good job guys!!!!

Today's card is another simple card.  So let's take a look........  Its even an action wobble.


Black cardstock - 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Yellow cardstock - 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
Purple cardstock - 4" x 5 1/4"
Patterned Paper - 3 3/4" x 5"

Yellow cardstock - 3/4", cut down to size after stamping sentiment and cutting out notches.  Foam tape edges and make sure to create a wave look to it.  Glue on purple rhinestones.

Wrap around green/white twine around two layers before adhering all to card.

Bump in the Night Cricut Lite Cartridge (Farst) at 4 1/4" along with all layers.  At the end I decided to add a googly eye.  Then I decided to make my own action wobble and attach him to main card. 

I wish I knew how to post him while being in action.  He/she is simply cute.
