Witchy Li’l Punkins

I am shamelessly CASEing these punkins: They were apparently a big hit a Founders Circle, Stampin’ Up!’s recognition event for the top 100 demonstrators.  Janet Wakeland shared them privately with her RemARKable Stampers team , and Patty Bennett shared them on her blog with a little more detail. I made a punkin-patch worth of these … More Witchy Li’l Punkins

Booo Spideys

The Holiday Mini catalog this year practically had me … More Spooky things
