Hi blogger friends. Hope everyone had a great day. I did a little crafting on my June calender page between taking care of my 5 month old grandson and making home made potato soup and bread.  Cold weather is here and patato soup sounded so good. That's what I will be eating for the next couple of days.
Enough about food.

Over on the BBTB2 The challenge this week is Pumpkin Time. I'm going to show you what I made then I'm going to tell how I did it.

                                   First I took a Singles To Go box that you can get at Wal-mart.
                                                      ( A Crystal Light box will also work)


                                    Next I took a peice of pattern paper that I think that I had gotten
                                    from HL. It was in my single paper stash. I measured the box and
                                    cut the paper to the size that I needed.  Here is the paper that I used.
                                     I pieced the paper  around the box to cover it completely.                 

                                         I used this stamp that I had gotten in the $ bin at M's a couple of
                                         years ago. I stamped it on some green paper from   DCWV.

                             Next I used my marthat stewart drippy dew punch that I had gotten from
                            Lorraine (Card Creations) Card Creations By Lorraine     She does such amazing
                             I had tried to make a card like she did, but of course I didn't have the cartridge
                             that she had used so I used what I had. She was having a contest or something,
                            its been awhile so I really don't remember what it was.   Anyway  she had sent
                            me this punch and some other things. I like this punch alot.

                                         Next I used my TEDDY BEAR PARADE cricut Lite cart
                                        That my friend Brenda  ( Friends Crafty With Friends) had gotten for me
                                        because I wasn't able to find it at my local Wal-mart. This
                                        cart is fun and has lots of cute cuts on it.  The pumpkin bear
                                       cut @ 3.25" and all the layers.

                                         Thanks for taking a look.   Comment if you like. thanks.
