Happy Halloween

Good Morning!  Have you missed me?  Please tell me you have - because I certainly have missed creating and posting and sharing and all that stuff!!  It's been a busy week.  My new job has me in a bit of a whirlwind.  Training, which is supposed to be 3 weeks, was crammed into a week and a half and were already taking calls.  I've been on phones for 3 days now and it's getting a bit easier.  So I am hoping that with settling into my job and establishing my comfort level, that I will be able to get back to stamping.

My new friend Evelyn and I decided to make goodie bags Thursday night for the people in our training class, the managers and a the few others that we knew at work.  We baked these super yummy cookies that are chock full of butter, oats, raisins, walnuts and the most important ingredient - CHOCOLATE!  I made tags.  I was really disappointed in myself that I hadn't taken my camera with me so I didn't get a picture - well I had a few bags leftover, so now I can show you what we did.

Here's a close up of the tag I made.  I kept them really simple because we were making 50 bags up the night before we were to deliver them.  I think they came out really cute.  I used Deedee's Digis Batty Boo set and then added a text box for our names.

I put them in a basket and left on them on the table for my kids.  They were pretty excited!

Well, today I am going to try to get as much stamping done as I can!  I just finished one card that I'll share at the end of this week.  I will also be sharing some exciting news very soon, too!  At least its exciting to me.  Have a super Saturday and Happy Halloween!!
