Hi Friends,

Are you ready for another linky party? I love the linky challenges- October  is here, and many of the children are thinking about their costumes, candy and trick or treating. I'm thinking about Christmas and it is one of my favorite Holidays after Thanksgiving of course.  I love giving presents, silly me, but I think you will like the prize for this one


Title: "Home for the Holidays"

I hope that is a happy thought for you

products used:
I used the stamp of the month  "Home for the Holidays" and stamped the sentiment with CTMH black, the bear is stamped with CTMH cranberry.  I fussy cut the tag out, although I could have cut it with the Cricut machine because it has a reference to the Art Philosophy cartridge on page 51 cut at 1 3/4  and then added  twine.
The gable box (pg 44) was cut on the explore @ 10.5" from the Artiste cartridge. I love how it scores as it cuts.
*If I did not want to fussy cut the tag I could have cut it with the Cricut machine using the Art Philosophy cartridge on page 40 cut at 1 3/4

 Anything goes. LInk up once per day.  
 and the Party will run until 11:55 pm PST 

October 31, 2014 
I am really looking forward to seeing all your creative projects.
