I'm Going Batty over this FUN News!

Coffee of the Day - Vanilla Nut Creme

Today I get to share with you some most amazing news - I have been accepted onto the Really Reasonable Ribbon Design Team!!!!!

if you have ever been to the RRR blog or played along in the challenges, then you know that this team contains some of the most talented people in all of crafty land! that they would want little ol' me just knocked my ever lovin' socks right off! I probably screamed and squealed loud enough to startle the folks in Canada when that email message came through. ;) thanks to Bonnie for giving me the chance! :)

to start off my term in proper fashion, I have a little project to share with you.

several weeks ago I won some cute dies by Lawn Fawn, courtesy of Lori at Choux Choux Paper Art. I thought they would make great treats to give/send to friends and family for Halloween.

using free  digital papers I found at Far Far Hill, I die cut the pillow box bat bodies and bat wings. faces and ears were cut from solid black cs and then googly eyes were added for a fun touch. edges were distressed with black ink before assembling. little goodie bags filled with Harvest M&M's are inside.... yum yum! :)

the bats are decorated with orange burlap string, black burlap string, orange plaid ribbon with black stitching, Gladys black crochet lace, and Catherine white crochet lace.

some of the little bats were packaged together in cellophane gift bags tied with itsy bitsy spider grosgrain ribbon. I love the way it looks as if their wings are covering their eyes for a game of hide 'n seek! :)

Please be sure to stop by the RRR blog to say a big hidey ho to all of the Design Team members! check out the store for some wonderful ribbons, too. they are sooooooooo lush! :)
