PPA62 Ginger Halloween


Wow, two posts in one day!!  While on vacation this summer, DH and I did some thrift shop-hopping and I came across this cute little tin:


I LOVE old tins!!  It was a great price…I think a dollar, and look what was inside:


As some people may know, I hoard my buttons, but I did give in and use some of these on my Pals Paper Arts challenge card today, which was All Buttoned Up!


This card will go tucked inside a little Halloween ebay item I had for sale…I hope the buyer likes it!  The image is an old SU set, A-Haunting We Will Go, with the sentiment from Fangtastic.  I FINALLY got the pleated ribbon thing going…I used a skewer to hold my pleats in place.  I wish I had put some threads through the ribbons, but I started this card at 1am, and wasn’t really thinking too clearly! LOL!  Papers are from Crafty Secret’s Earthy pack.  Here’s the inside:


Gotta run, I am baby-sitting today! :D

Great use of the ribbon on the card, and glad you used some of your "awesome-find" buttons! That tin is really cool. I hope you are using it as a decoration; it looks perfect for this season.

Great stuff! What are you doing up at 1 am I thought I was the crazy one in our group that did that. I can't seem to make that late anymore. What is happening to me. Well gotta run. Off to finish my swaps for regionals.
