Sorry for the break from posting. It's been a little nuts around here and it doesn't look like it's going to let up anytime soon. I'll try to post every day, but it may be short & sweet for awhile! Thanks for stopping by and I'll share a 3-D project with you tomorrow. Now off to the Y to work off yesterday! Talk to you soon!

Next, I cut a piece of the Holly Berry Bouquet Fabric at 6" x 3". I folded the fabric at 1/4" on the short side and ironed it to have a finished edge. I cut a piece of the Wild Wasabi Striped Grosgain at 6" and folded it on half and ironed it. I put a piece of Sticky Strip on the inside of the ribbon and attached the fabric to the ribbon. I used Sticky Strip to attach the fabric/ribbon hat to the top of the Very Vanilla and wrapped it around. I added another piece of Sticky Strip to the finished edge of the fabric in the back and that made my hat. I tied it at the top with some Early Espresso Baker's Twine and a Mini Jingle Bell.
I added a scarf that was cut at 1" x 12" and tied it on a knot. I made his eyes and mouth by punching Chocolate Chip Cardstock with both sizes of the hole punches on the Cropodile. I punched the large heart with the Heart to Heart Punch out of Pumpkin Pie for his nose. I used a dauber in Rose Red for his cheeks.
I stamped the sentiment with the Occasions Alphabet in Real Red. I punched it out with the Oval Punch and layered it onto a piece of Wild Wasabi punched with the Scallop Oval Punch. I added a Holly Berry Bouquet Button tied with Espresso baker's Twine to finish it off. I hope you think he's as cute as I do and hope you'll try making a few for some of your Holiday gifts. Thanks for coming by!

I'm so mad I didn't get pictures of everyone.It was one of many things I thought of, but didn't get done. That probably would have been a job for my Superhero Hubby, but he was doing a remote with our local radio station at Wal-mart for Operation Christmas Child. I still managed to find plenty for him to help me with when he got home though.
One of the things he did earlier was make a couple of wonderful Pumpkin Pie cheesecakes. He even made the whipped cream for them! he got rave reviews!
We started out the night with salad and breadsticks. Next I served them spaghetti with my own sauce. I've never liked any that I've bought at the store, so I just make my own. Can you say picky? Next came dessert and coffee. One of the ladies brought a scrumptious Bavarian Apple Torte. It was a huge hit as well.
After I stuffed them to the gills, I had some presents for all my Club Members, and then we did a Make & Take. I'll share more details with you tomorrow...so make sure to check back in!

Now, let's talk turkey! This little box was made with the Mini Milk Carton Die. I cut out 2 in Pumpkin Pie and cut one section off of each-make sure it's the side without the tab-and you'll have a 6 sided box which I thought would work great for a pumpkin. I sticky stripped the bottom and rolled up a crimped piece of Crumb Cake for the stem. I cut a few notches in the bottom of the stem and sticky stripped it to the inside of the pumpkin. I put some candy corn and peanuts in a baggie and carefully wrapped it aroung the stem.
Oops, I need to back up a little bit. I also ran the Pumpkin Pie pieces through the Big Shot with the Stripes Embossing Folder. I stamped the tag with the Gift Givers set and punched it out with the Curly Label Punch. I colored the turkeys body with Crumb Cake and his feathers withe Soft Suede and Pumpkin Pie.
Next, I punched holes around the top with the Cropodile and threaded Pumpkin Pie ribbon through it. It works a lot better to put the tag on and then tie the bow-it's a really tight fit. Finally, I thread a skinny strip of Old Olive through a button, spritzed it with alcohol, and wrapped it around a skewer to make it curly. I popped the button on with a dimensional, and there's your pumpkin!
I am really beat, so I'm going to hit the sack. I'll have lots to share with you from my Hostess Appreciation Night, so be sure to check back. Have a great night!
