Happy Sunday!!!

Just another lazy Sunday afternoon...and I'm finally signing on to announce the winner of our latest giveaway. Before I do, I just want to thank everyone for following along as I introduced my new designs for Fall and Christmas...and for leaving such nice comments!!! Our final winner of the year is JAN!!! Jan, please send your address to me at, and I will send your stamps out to you!!!

I can't believe that it's almost the end of October and Halloween is upon us. If you're anything like'll be jamming this week to get your Halloween goodies out...hope I can help with some ideas. Here's a quick idea using my Martha Stewart fence punch (again!) to make a Halloween pumpkin patch:

I started off with these candies since they were the right size and "pumpkin-shaped":

I used two 5" x 5" squares of orange tissue paper to wrap each candy:

I just wrapped the tissue around the candy and scrunched up the top like this:

Then, I cut about 5" of ribbon and put some double stick tape along one side...I used this ribbon to wrap around the top of the tissue paper to seal in the candy and form a pumpkin stem. (Trim off any tissue paper sticking out of the top). I finished it off with a length of leaf garland (from Ben Franklin) wrapped around the stem. Below, I used stamp #C106 (Maddy the Witch) with double stick foam on a single candy pumpkin:

Enjoy the rest of your weekend...and have a great week!!!

Wow Jean! Super cute idea. I wish I was able to find the stamps you used. They must have sold out fast from BFC. Hope you'll enter my Halloween blog candy giveaway. Thanks for all the clever Halloween ideas you've shared.

Hi, Jean -
I am a teacher in Honolulu and I ALWAYS buy your stamps whenever I go to Ben Franklin. My 7th grade class loves them! They like to color in the design after I stamp their homework. Thank you for the cute designs.
