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.
