Challenge Days!!

Hello everyone & welcome back to my Challenge Wednesday, lol! Seems that Wednesdays seem to be popular for challenges on some of my DT's! I'll try not to keep this post too long for you cuz' I've got lots to do. I have deadlines due at the end of the week and I'm only halfway finished---ahhhhh--gotta get it done! Can't share any of those with ya yet cuz' they're still top secret! My dimensions and pictures for the hot chocolate box will be up on my blog on Friday for those of you who have been oh-so patiently waiting for it :) And can ya believe Halloween is next week--my how time doth fly! I've got to get out my Halloween decorations outside--my creepy graveyard and lots of scary pumpkins, fun! I'll share some pics with you real soon!

So it's Whatchadoin' Wednesday over on the Storage Units, Ink and More blog site. This week the DT's challenge was to make "Treats for our Sweets"--you can join in on the challenge too. Just upload your cards to SCS with the keyword SUINKWWC11 so we can all see!

I decided to use my "First & Goal" stamp set to make some football snacks that you can just grab & go. I thought these could be used for many things including SuperBowl party snacks, football tailgating and treats for those of you who have kids on a football team for after the game. These are quick and easy to do which is good when you need to mass produce! The fun football field dp was picked up at Joann's and the clear cellophane bags I purchased at Michaels in the candy/cake aisle (a big bag of them for cheap). I measured the top of the bags to figure out how large to make my bag toppers then cut my white cs to size so I could stamp on it. I stamped multiple images on each topper and then colored them in with my Copics. After that it was just simple cutting and attaching to my dp & cs. I stapled the bags shut after filling w/ party mix and attached the toppers with my red-line tacky tape. Quick, easy & fun!

My second and final card is for the Spiral Whisper Challenge #6 today and its to make a spooky Halloween card. Please feel free to join in and upload it to the comment section (by Nov. 5th) on the Spiral Whisper blog for a chance to win a "Christmas Pudding Max" stamp. You've seen me use alot of the Janet Robert stamps from there but today I'm switchin' it up. This cute witch stamp is by Mandy Yaxley--creepy but cute me thinks! The image is colored w/ Copics and the yummy dp is from SU's Halloween line this fall. I added diamond glaze to her cauldron and green stickles to her brew and some to her hair! The cobwebs are from my MS punch and isn't that ribbon so fun--I picked it up at Michaels for $1! I also sponged some sagey green Colorbox chalk ink around the image so that it looks like a creepy looking glass! Hope you likee!

Alrighty, that's enough from me today. I'll be back tomorrow with some more eye candy for ya! Don't forget to visit my Whiff of Joy DT sistah Rach's blog this week for some yummy blog candy--she's giving a lucky someone a "Melinda Hugging Heart" stamp.
