                                                        for our hop i made a few things to show you ..
                                                                   first i altered a wine bottle
                       i covered it in paper from recollections. and added some webbing for spooky fun.

the label came with the paper pack. im going to give this to my daughter as she is into bats. i know she'll love this :)  the witch/cauldron are a marths stewart punch. i added a few cloud9 raindots  for her bubbly brew.

the kitty is a martha stewart punch also. my daughter also loves kitties.. she has like 50 of them ;)
i filled the bottle with jelly beans for show here  but will take them out and add reeses pieces  her favorites :) im sure she'd prefer it filled with wine tho ;)
oh i also used a cut paper doily edge and strung some beads around the neck.
i also added a couple of cuttlebug bats. i just cut 2 of each  and glued wire between the layers.  
super simple but fun to make :)

    next i made a card using stampin up treat cup holders. this is called a slider treat cup card i                                             found the instructions on splitcoaststampers.
                                 i used my cricut and paperdolls cartridge for the large ghost. 
oh i forgot to take a close up of the tab on top...can you see the orange ribbon/brad on top of the card, well that makes it so the recipient can pull that tab up and the candy will slide out of the inside of the card so your cute card doesnt have to be ripped apart .. check out the tute on splitcoast on how to make this . its a whole lot easier than me trying to explain as im a visual person .
      i cut out a few ghosties from the pre~patterned paper and pop dotted them for some ghost depth :)
                      here i used a dollar bin stamp and added some viva decor glitter liner 
heres the inside . this came with the paper pack.

                      then i went ahead and made another card , a spinner card. another for my daughter :)
                                             paper is from cosmo cricket/matilda. thanks rose!!! 
                                     kitty and bat are from my cricut and hello kitty cartridge. 
                                . the bat in action :)  i just love these spinner cards :)
              oopsie the bats a little hard to see hes really cute.   overcast today i need to 
                  find the right time of day and perfect pic taking spot now that fall is here. 
                                      i added viva decor gel pen to kittys hat and witchy cape. 

well i hope youve had some fun here.. i sure did with your visit :) be sure to run on over to the wonderfully creative stars blog  to see what awesome project she has made and be sure to  leave her an awesome comment :) 
thanks so much for hanging out here and playing along in our hop . good luck on the prizes i hope you win!!!  have a great day!!! xxxshelly
