CA Wednesday...

Hello my wonderful crafty friends!

As you know my wonderful friends and I have been trying to meet on Wednesdays (so far so good) to have a day full of crafty fun and this Wednesday was no exception.  We had been having a really hard week in our personal lives and this was a GREAT way to chat and have a little crafty therapy session.  :)

We didn't really have a theme this week, mostly we just worked on whatever holiday we wanted and used whatever new items we had received during the week, ahem - The {Stamps} of Life new release stamps we got Tuesday.  Yay!  Love this new set Penquins4Christmas.  Super cute.  Go check it out.  :)

Here are some of the wonderful cards we made...and I will try to let you know products that were used, if I know them.  :)

Melissa was our wonderful hostess this week, (darn, I mean *M) haha.  So I will start with her ~ Melissa gets her inspiration from The {Stamps} of Life Gallery.  There are a lot of fabulous cards over there, you should check it out.  :)

Using the penguins4Christmas, I masked off his face
and used the pumpkin face pieces and bats from Thanks2Fall.
Trick or Treat is from spooky2scare.  Ann had
this super tiny little spider stamp that I used for his bowtie.  :)

Here I made a puffy spider with glitter paper.  I was
inspired by Tamara at
happy life crafty wife.  I thought it would
be perfect if it was gathering candy corn (instead of nasty bugs) hehe

Stinking cute, right?
This has inspired me to start and Auntie's Corner on my blog (when I have a chance to get it rolling) to post projects that my nieces do.  They are really talented young ladies.  :)  

Whew, this was a long one.  I hope you enjoyed looking at the pics.  :)  We sure had a really GREAT time and forgot about our problems for a while.  :)
