Holiday Spirit

Well, Halloween is over. I hope you all had a fun and enjoyable Halloween. Our church had a Chili cook off and a Trunk or Treat. Last year my husband won first place at the chili cook off.  Well, this year I entered the chili cook off for my husband as he had to work. I actually enterd two chili recipes and this year we came in second and fourth place. I am allergic to certain spices so I was only able to taste the chili that won fourth place. I went by what my husband told me to put in his recipe as last year we added some extra ingredients that were not written on the recipe. Later my husband reminded me that I had forgotten the three most important ingredients. So next year we shall try to get our first place back again. Second place is not too bad though! There were about 35 entries.

Well, I hope now that Halloween is over you can get into the holiday spirt. I'm already looking forward  to the holidays. It will be fun making lots of different Christmas cards.  Today is Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  I hope you run over and checked out my other blog. My design team has created some fun cards for you to look at. This week we have Teri, one of our own design team members, sponsoring us with a digi prize. Be sure to hurry over to Teri's blog.  Then from there hurry over to her delicious doodles blog. Teri has some really fun new digis for the holiday card making.

My card today is made with Teri's snowman. He was just too cute with the bird perched on his top hat. I added some rhinestones and a cute little snowflake to the hat and stickles for the snow. My paper is Die Cuts with a View.
