LTTCB #5 - It's a Pineapple!!

It's a new month and a new challenge!!!  Remember it's always anything get as creatively crafty as you like!!

Check out the challenge here and see all the amazing DT samples and details for prizes:   LTTCB #5

My daughter's birthday is right around Thanksgiving....but she loves Halloween so much that I wanted to make her birthday card appropriate.  Hence the fun Stampin' Up!  Jar of Haunts and Spooky Fun.  

And this pineapple I'd seen on Pinterest and knew it would be a perfect gift for my girl!  What better gift than champagne and chocolates??  Check out the before and after pics........

Oh yeah....lots and lots of truffles!  LOL

There are several different ways to do it, but I used the method that took the longest and burned my fingers the most with the hot glue gun! LOL  Because, well, yeah.  That's just me!  Some ribbon and twine for the piney part of the pineapple finishes it off!!

I hope you have some fun getting crafty and creative!!

LTTCB #4 - Anything Goes - Gingerbread Treats

Welcome to November!!  Time for a new always anything goes in theme or project!!  And definitely stop by the Love To Craft Challenge Blog for all the deets and prize info and gorgeous inspiration from the entire Design Team!!!

Smiley from Millan.Net

I had a recent Fundraiser I was involved in and I got inspired by these glitzy little gingerbread men I saw and of course had to buy!  LOL  So I made some mini gingerbread loaves and wrapped them in some cute, festive treat bags and attached some little tags I made.

I used the super duper adorable Stampin' Up! set Yummy Little Christmas!!  And the OrnateTag Topper punch.  Some twine to attach the tag and BAM!  Easy peasy and a yummy little hostess gift, seasonal welcome to neighbors, thank yous to anyone, etc.  

Cherry Cobbler cardstock is still one of my ALLTIME faves!!  And those sparkly little gingerbread men...well just toooo darn cute for me to pass up!!!

Hope you get inspired to get to some crafting!  Put on some seasonal music, simmer some cinnamon and ginger on the stove in some apple juice, and sip your favorite hot cocoa!
