Christmas sneaks and a Halloween treat

Hi everyone!
Had a few quick things I wanted to share with all of you before I rush out the door. Today is going to be a fun day. We get to spend time with the classes that earned rewards for the Read-a-thon today. I am really looking forward to all the fun games we have planned for them.
Anyway, have you seen the newest issue of Crafts N' Things yet?

There is a lot of amazing stuff in this issue, holiday cards and gifts, quick-and-clever ornaments and dazzling d├ęcor ideas. They have included a Budget-Savvy Gifts section with a ton of handmade gift ideas and so much more!
I thought I would share one of my cards from this issue with you. You will find step-by-step instructions to make this card and so much more in this issue.

I have a Halloween layout to share with you too. My girls get such a kick out of designing their own Jack-o-Lanterns and carving them by themselves. There are not so crazy about taking out the goo though. Check out K's face in the second picture in the second row. LOL

I created this layout using some of the yummy chipboard from Magistical Memories. I painted one of the scallop lace borders and painted on some Stickles for a little bling. Speaking of bling, there is lots of great Creative Charms sparkle on here too. The cute little pumpkin charm comes from the Vintage Halloween Frames set. The black gem stickers embellishing the journaling block are also from Creative Charms, as well as the orange brads on the scallop border.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a fabulous day!

Congrats on the pubs, Lisa! That Crafts N Things magazine looks awesome and your card is fabulous. I love that PP line. And what an awesome layout. As you know (snort)....I am quite the big fan of Halloween, so this is right up my alley. I adore the title you used and that grid of photos is fabulous. My kiddos have always felt the same way about the pumpkin guts. ;)
