If perchance this is the first time you've encountered this weekly blog hop and you want to know the details...  The how to's and what for's are explained here.

I received a lot of comments about these bath tags...I finished them by adding the ribbon and a rubber ducky, then completed the back pocket insert. The tubs are doubled card stock hand cut from a simple outline doubling the card stock I get a crisper cut...then I glued them together...using a stylus to shape and emboss the edges. I used chalk on the blue tub to lighten the color and add detail...then covered it with glossy accents.

I want to complete the 20 pumpkin place card holders a friend asked me to make for her Thanksgiving dinner. 18 circles for each pumpkin...folded exactly in half. If you have any questions...please ask it in the comment section.

 The poinsettia die I ordered finally arrived so I had to make several flowers just for fun. I love it...the crisp cut and embossed detail produces quality results. I got the glitter out...and I love the sparkle on the white poinsettias...not so much on the red.

Using the last piece of tape and the plastic circle from a "terrifically tacky tape" roll I made this
 5 1/2 "wreath...I could hang it or use it around a candle votive.

I got a late start so now I'll get this posted and go about snooping. Thanks for all the visits and comments last week. A special thanks to all the bloggers following me...111...a very auspicious number. Thanks for your support and interest.

If you leave a comment I will return the favor.
Be well ~ Carole

 Prayers for strength and support go out to all those facing the challenges of this life.

  11. I had no idea I had missed so much. Wow,...I could spend a few more hours visiting. I wish I wasn't so busy. The things you have been doing are amazing. 18 circles for one pumpkin yet gorgeous! I drool every time I see the poinsettia die cut and have yet to get it knowing I would just use at Christmas and don't even think I have time to make any cards for Thanksgiving or Christmas due to moving. You are SO FULL of wonderful ideas and creations. You have inspired me just to go and make, if nothing else, a quick card. Again, your work is creative and stunning.

  12. I have said it before, the tags are gorgeous! Great pumpkins too! Thanks for visiting me, I am slowly getting round (and uncovering layers still)!
