Yea it's Fall!

Swap time! I have to apologize though-- Petra did participate and I loved her card. So much so that it is on the way to my Dad for his birthday, and someone will have to send me a picture of it to put on the blog!

This first card is by Tracy. I love the fall colors and how she blended colors on the leaf. Beautiful.

Aww, isn't he cute? Nancy made him with the cricut-- inside he asks "Ruff Day?" That has also already gone in the mail to a friend!

Heidi was nice enough to give me TWO of her cricut pandas! I HAVE to find some time to use my cricut.....

This is SU!'s new Owl Punch and I love it! Too easy and too cute. The tree and envie are stamped with Season of Friendship.

Back to School Chocolate

My favorite kind! Both the brand, and the words "Back to School"! :)
Yes, I know, my kids don't think I am funny either. Molly's Open House was last night and tonight we have Russell's. I am not sure why, but I always start the year by giving the teachers chocolate! I am not usually organized enough to have it for Open House Night, but this chocolate was calling my name-- needed to get it out of the house QUICKLY. There are 2-- one for his new teacher, and one for last year's teacher who we will miss immensely.

All I did was my favorite chocolate wrapper technique-- I cut Rose Red CS to 7 1/2 X 5, and cut the designer paper (retired Raspberry Tart) slightly smaller. The ribbon is Purely Pomegranate satin ribbob, and that about finished the roll. Darn, I loved that ribbon. Whoops, time to go, later!
