Hi Everyone!
 I hope you are having a great week so far! 
Today I am sharing a card featuring two of my favorite things, Hello Kitty and Trendy Twine!
 For my card, I used Lime Grapesicle Trendy Twine.
I really like the purple, white and lime green. So many fun options with those.
I made this card for a fellow Hello Kitty lover, even though I would love to keep it ;o)

Now for my card:

I started with a black card stock base and then some Doodlebug Halloween Parade for my patterned papers. All the card stock is recollections. The Hello Kitty I used here is a print 'n cut found on Google. The stamped border and sentiment are from a recollections stamp set -Happy Halloween.
I punched a few borders with the Martha Stewart Web Border punch and used some Wink of Stella glitter pen on it. I added some Orange peel stickles to Hello Kitty's bow and some glossy accents to her eyes and of course, she is blushing with some stampin pastels!! :)
The tag is from the silhouette store.

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day!

And now for my project....

For my project, I stamped the cute apple and the sentiment from "Let's Talk Turkey" in Chocolate chip ink from Stampin Up. I used patterned papers from Pebbles Front Porch 6x6. I cut the little apple basket from a Miss Kate Cuttables file "Apples in a basket" then filled it with my cute apples. I used Peachy Keen Kawaii Face Assortment for the cute apple faces, I just love those! I add some crocheted ribbon and twine from May Arts. I added some embellishing with my white gel pen, glossy accents and some stampin pastels. I die cut some grass for the bottom with Lawn Fawn's grassy border die. I embossed the sign and basket with the Woodgrain folder from The Paper Studio. The background border is embossed with Polka dots from Provo Craft.

Today we are showcasing "Let's Talk Turkey & Talk Turkey To Me."

Here is my sneak peek...

For my card, I used the "Let's Talk Turkey" stamp set.
I used a Miss Kate Cuttables "Turkey in Pumpkin" as a print 'n cut along with a die cut banner.
I embossed the sentiment in gold to stand out again the pretty fall paper.
Then I attached some burlap ribbon with the Tim Holtz Tiny attacher.
I embellished with some white gel pen and distress ink.

 Hi Everyone!
Today is my day to share a project for Miss Kate Cuttables.
 I made some fun Halloween treat tags for our daughter's class party.
I try not to make these too elaborate because they are going to 2nd graders afterall.
They want the candy not the tag!
So print and cut is a perfect way to do that and with every purchase from Miss Kate Cuttables comes a .png file to use as a print and cut if you so choose!

Here are my tags:
 A closer view of the tags, even though they are print and cuts I still embellished them.

I used 4 different Miss Kate Cuttables files and a font for these tags:

Peeking Frankenstein

Cute Witch


The Happy Font I use is also available in the store.

Aren't these guys just so fun?! 
Thanks for stopping by and make sure to stop by the
 Miss Kate Cuttables store to get your daily freebie!
