Zoom Zoom ...

... there goes August! Whew, I know I'm not the only one feeling this way, but seriously, what happened to August??

My Favorite Things is gearing up for its September release on Wednesday evening at 10 pm EST. Teasers have begun showing up on DT blogs, including here, yesterday. But wait -- I'm not ready to put away my August sets yet! I have three things to share today, and all three have been sitting in partial stages of completion for more than a week. I carved out a little stamping time today to finally get them finished and posted. Here goes ...

First up is a card using Trick or Treat with Who's That Girl:



The last time I colored this image, I gave Flopsey a green suit. This time, I thought I'd try out orange - now he looks like a giant candy corn! I gave the trio a green glow to give a little bit of a spooky feel. Coloring is with Prismacolor pencils. This started out as a large tag, but when it overpowered the bucket I was working with, I stuck it on a card base instead. Perfect size.

Next up is a super easy Halloween treat bag. I love the things Michelle Wooderson does with the glassine bags and clothespins and have been itching to give her idea a try.



How cute are these? The clothespin I used is a craft supply and therefore a good bit smaller than your normal laundry clothespins, but either will work. The pumpkin and sentiment are from Trick or Treat with Who's That Girl, and the bag is filled with my personal Halloween favorite - candy corn (has to be Brach's, though).

Last is the third of three items in the reading set I made for my daughter a while back. I posted a little backpack box to hold her library card and a matching card HERE, but this sign for her doorknob was just a sketch at the time.



The girl and the bookshelf are two separate images from I {Heart} Books (which is currently out of stock - I'm sorry!). I stamped them, then colored and drew in the floor and the wall using Prismacolor pencils. The "shh" letters are done with Bling 'Bet. I did the "I'm reading" sentiment by hand.



Thanks so much for stopping by!
