Cammie's blog candy

Cammie is having fantastic blog candy which ends tonight. She is honoring those whose life has been affected by Alzheimer’s.

Blog Candy and The New seven dwarfs

I got this stamp from ebay a while back but haven't use it. I have been feeling very hormonal this week. I thought this card fit my mood. The card says "The seven dwarfs of menopause are: itch, bitchy, sweaty, sleepy, bloated, forgetful, and psycho. Sound Familiar?
For blog candy, I will send the winner this card along with some ribbon of their favorite color and a couple stamped images of the saying so the winner can make her own card. All you need to do to win is leave a comment with your two favorite colors. I will draw a winner Monday morning at 10am pacific time.

My first tutorial

I got the idea for my bag from Diane .
I got the idea for the spider from Dawn. She used SU punches which I don't have so I used the circle from the SU Bags & Blooms die for the Big Shot. I used the circle that is supposed to be the bottom of the bag and just cut off the tabs. The legs are the bands for the bag on SU Bags & Blooms die. I cut the legs in half.
I had to add chocolate some way so I used a york peppermint pattie for the center and clued a black circle on the back.
This is the circle from the SU Bags & Blooms die.

This is the band from the die.

This piece is from the birthday set of cuttlebugs die birthday set. I used 2 of these to make my tab for the bag.

Here you can see that the cupcake has a little tab.

If you have any questions, just leave a comment.

One sheet wonder class

Back in July my SU friend, Julie had a class that I was unable to make. She kindly gave me the parts and pictures so I could make the cards at home.
