You could fill the Sweet Treats Cup with anything small enough. I like being able to see into the bag through the holes so you can tell what goodies await. Tomorrow is the last day before Halloween and then we get into the Thanksgiving/Christmas season before we can barely blink our eyes! I love these last 3 months of the year and all the fun crafting possibilities. I can't wait to create some of the ideas I have been wanting to share.

This is a card we made in my club several years ago. I guess all the stamps I used are retired except for the Much Appreciated sentiment but I wanted to share it because I am getting several colors of metal sheets and they are going to be a lot of fun to create with. On this card we stamped the pumpkin on the metal and then used an embossing stylus to raise the lines. It is a fun technique that I will be doing in a class next month, along with several other metal ideas. When I designed this card we didn't have the Big Shot machine or any embossing folders. Even with those fun additions I still like the technique of stamping the metal and adding the texture with a stylus. I'm also looking forward to running the metal through the Big Shot too! It is going to be georgous!

Last is a CASE of a tag that I made into a card instead. Marie Shaughnessy made the tag and shared it on her blog. The spider is like the ones from my Tricks and Treats class but the candy is M&Ms in a treat cup instead of the spider covering the mint patty. I wonder who was the first person to imagine the photo corner punches as spider legs.
