One of my favorite holidays is just around the corner, Halloween. I love to decorate and make all kinds of treats and goodies. I used Authentique's Thrilling Collection papers and Petaloo Small Wild Flowers in Paprika and decided I wanted to make a Halloween card. I stood before the enormous shelf in my craft room scouring through my selection of dies. As I searched, I wondered if some of the dies I had owned were even made anymore. I discovered I had quite a few of retired dies. I saw a lonely, neglected Halloween Sizzix die and pulled it off my shelf. I dusted her off and said, "Today's your lucky day." It's simply called "Pumpkins #2". What I love about this die is that you can create whatever type of face you want on these pumpkins just as you could on a real pumpkin. Of course, you could always use the pattern already provided by the die, which is what I did simply to save time. I also dusted off my Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations die called 'In The Bag". It didn't need much dusting since this is a relatively newer die and isn't retired. It's a cute little bag the size of a party favor and I thought it would be a perfect addition to a card that I could fill with little treats.
