Tricks For Sweet Treats

 Simple Tricks For Halloween Treats Great for Halloween parties or treats for your neighbors & friends or co-workers

Wow!  What  a great morning I just finished my first card class at the Plainfield Public Library!
We had such a great time.  There were about 25 ladies and we each made 4 cards.   We did two Birthday, a Get Well,  and a thank you card.

I want to send out a special thank you out to the Plainfield Public Library for hosting this event and to Therese Chaves for coordinating the event.  

I will post the cards that we mad in a little bit!

This paper is called "Sweet Shop"  It is in the Seasonal Mini Catalog.  Last day to order from this catalog is April 30th.  I just love the way the the Early Espresso Paper and the Cupcake Builder Punch go so well with the paper.  I stamped the sprinkles in the frosting with the coordinating stamp set  Create A Cupcake.  If you love this look make sure that you order your Sweet Shop Designer Series Paper today by visiting my website at  Item number # 125408

I found an inexpensive journal at a local craft shop.  It was under $1.00.  I added a ribbon for a page marker and embellished the front and I gave this to one of my hostesses fro a pretty little hostess gift.  She just loved it!
