Would you like a piece of candy???

'Cause I would! But, then again, I pretty much would ALWAYS like a piece of candy. It's a problem I have. No. For reals. I'm addicted to the stuff. And I don't even eat fancy 'grown up' candy. I eat the gummies and the chewies and the sours. Kids stuff. And I still love fruit roll-ups, too. So there. Now you know! HA!

That being the case, it seemed odd to me that I hadn't created a fun CANDY themed Halloween card. So, I fixed that little problem by creating this fun little card! That Cosmo Cricket Matilda 6x6 paper pack arrived in the mail yesterday from Shelly over at ScrapGirlz and I love it! So cute! So, I combined that with my Samantha Walker for Unity Bones About Halloween stamp set and a bit of ingenuity for this cute little card!

Happy Halloween Candy Card


I dyed the ribbon with Maya Road Sunflower Yellow spray ink. I love it! And just CHECK OUT that double bow! That was just a crazy idea I had while I was tying the ribbon so I decided to give it a shot and I love it! Totally going to be doing more of those!

Happy Halloween Candy Card (detail)


I created the little piece of candy by freehand cutting the base from patterned paper and then adding just a strip down the middle with another color. I wrapped the candy in cello and tied up the ends with twine from The Twinery! YAY! for candy cuteness!!!!

In other news...the fall season decided to last a whopping three weeks this year. This was my front yard last night.

Sad. Day. Just say'n. We got a couple of inches. In October. Hmph! HA!

I guess there is a storm coming in on Saturday that plans to bring more. yay. note my intense enthusiasm for that. Oh, well. At least it is pretty!

Also, just in case I don't get around over the weekend - I have a SUPER FABULOUS AMAZING giveaway coming your way on Monday!!! I've joined up with Kathy over at Bliss Habits and we are going to kick start your holiday shopping. That's all I'm say'n. K? K. Be there. You're worth it. (*Said in my best Gwen Stephani voice.)

Jingle Out.

I love your writing style, Jen. You have such a knack for writing your personality in words. Love it!!! Love the card too...clever with the cellophane candy wrapper.

I'm in love with piece of candy you created-- it turned out fabulous! And the double bow looks great-- I might have to try that!

Kary said...

Love the cute piece of candy on your Halloween card!! The card is so bright and cheerful, I love it!!
I know it's too early to have snow, maybe we could swap places, cos it is just too HOT and humid right where I am. Could do with some snow...maybe! Have a lovely weekend, keep warm!!

What exactly is adult candy? :) I love the fruity chewy candy too. Sour Patch Kids, Mambas and lots more...good stuff! Love the handmade candy embellie and the double bow! Cute!

Marjie Kemper said...

Such a fun card... the candy is fantastic! Like you, I am not ready for snow. Seriously... not in the mood! Yet tomorrow we expect 4-8".

Michelle said...

I love that you actually wrapped the candy! Super cool.

Being in SoCal, that snow doesn't look too bad to me. I always liked the snow at the beginning of the season. Then as the winter drags on you grow to hate it!

Electra said...

Who let Gwen Stephani in??? Snow? But you're not in Canada! What the heck!

slicksister said...

Snow? Now? Gagarooney! Cute layout - love the candy.

Jen said...

We got snow, too, but it's not sticking. Thank goodness!! Cute card - love how you created the candy!

Kai said...

ADULT CANDY? Is that - like - candy without its wrapper? LOL! Or is it just an oxymoron? I LOVE gummies. Not a big candy eater but there are some candies I cannot resist now & then. (I'm the original Cooky Monster! LOOOOOVE cookies!) And your card? Just about as cute as it gets!

jayne said...

Emily Keaton said...

Oh, that is SWEET! I love your little candy decoration--very clever. These are great colors for such a fun card! We got a dusting of snow last night, too, and more on the way tomorrow. I've heard 6-10"! With leaves still on the trees! My kids may have to trick-or-treat on Monday in their snow boots . . .

Becky said...

Boo for the snow. But yay for the candy! Love the little piece you made, so adorable!

The candy paper is to die for. Not literally, but I'd love to find it. I couldn't tell which brand it is...

Linda said...

I love your card so bright and cheerful

Snow? Glad it came your way first, we'll get it soon enough here, like this weekend. Great card, my boys and I love fruit rollups!

Faerie Moon Creations said...

That card is so adorable! I love the bright happy colors. Wow - you actually got a bit of snow. We are expecting something tomorrow night - which may interfere with the party we were planning to go to. Bah! I love snow - but I love it when it comes AFTER Thanksgiving! LOL

onecraftymama said...

Seriously, with all your big talk about candy corn, and it took until now to see some??? lol. Shame shame :) I adore the little wrapped candy you made (awww) and you can keep the snow. They're threatening it for us too, but I hate making the kids put on snowsuits under their costumes. Ugh.
