Speaking of treats...I'm sharing a trio of little treat containers (who are sporting their mini chocolate bar stashes) over at Crazy 4 Challenges #257~Halloween Treats and The Pink Elephant #273~Trick or Treat (Treat Container)
and a new-to-me challenge, Art with Heart~October~Tricks and Treats (the DT samples are fabulous!!)
I used a mini envelope die, but kept the flap opened. Added my stitched ghosties and "spooky" die and...done.
Hope you had a crafting day, too! Oh yes, I started another project the other day, which was sparked by Susie, over at Susie Craft Happy: knitting a cowl (the link will take you to a showcase of what she's working on). A gi-normous ball of teal wool, bought about four years ago where my husband and I traveled to Bozeman Montana (what a sweet little city!) for a bike race (surprise!), has been sitting in my much-neglected knitting stash (amongst other balls of wool, and including a 'how to knit dinosaurs book that I truly must open! Ms. T and Mr. C would get a kick out of knit dinosaurs). After seeing Susie's cowl and scoping out the free pattern, 'twas time to bring out the needles. My knitting expertise extends to knit and purl, which is precisely what the pattern calls for - 35 stitches, one row knit, one row purl. Just me speed. I imagine it will take quite a while to get it done (especially since card-making comes first...I know my priorities), but if, by some fluke, I negotiate my way through in a reasonable time, I may aim to make one for my mom...and sister-in-law...and sister . Hmmmm....setting my sights rather high. Anyway, off to give the dough a gentle knead...
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day
