a Halloween treat and some more Monday morning bragging

Todays stamping is something a little different, it is called a treat slider. When you pull the ribbon the treat, in this case microwave popcorn, slides up. These are really easy to make. I just I measured the card stock by wrapping the card stock around the popcorn package. I removed the card stock from the popcorn, then punched a whole through both layers in the top for the ribbon and slid the popcorn right in.

The background is wheeled in whisper white with the whimsy wheel. I created the main image using Autumn Harvest and used a couple of masks when I stamped the images so that they would overlap comfortably. The greeting is from a retired set (sorry) All Year Cheer III but it is the only Halloween greeting I currently have. The main image is watercolored with various reinkers then layered. I added a black vintage brad and did a little paper piercing on the pumpkin pie layer. I added a strip of pumpkin pie and whisper white card stock across the bottom with some black grosgrain ribbon.

Now on to the bragging...
My daughter Jessika was in a cheerleading competition this weekend. At her level there are no winners or losers, it really just about getting out there and giving it their best. Here she is before the competition.
Here is her team out on the floor. She is in the front row, second from the right.
After the competition...
