Meade Girls' Halloween/Fall Shoebox Swap

I just LOVE getting together with my stamping friends! Yesterday, Amanda and Cindy hosted a Halloween/Fall-themed shoebox swap. What FUN!!! We made some FABULOUS cards and treat holders, played bingo, wore funny hats, had a ribbon challenge, ate and chatted away the day!

This is a peppermint patty holder that I got as a treat from our hostesses:

This is the card that I created to take to the swap for my friends to make. Simple, but I think it turned out cute.

Stamps: Calendar Kids, Happy Halloween sentiment (Stampin' Up)
Papers: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, old Halloween DSP (Stampin' Up), Neenah 80# white
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black for sponging
Accessories: spong, Cuttlebug, Cuttlebug Spider Web embossing folder, orange dew drops, Aleene's Jewel It glue

This cute card was created by JoAnn. I messed mine up so didn't have one to photograph. (That's what I get for not reading the directions!) This is a picture of JoAnn's sample that I took at the swap with my phone.

Each and everyone of these ladies is SO talented! I really enjoy getting together with them and can hardly wait till the next time!!
