I've tried some new things and couldn't wait to show you what I've learned.  The paper rope while twisted up was colored with Copics, then I untwisted it to give it the Tie Die look, and then my friend and fabulouse inspirational friend Jill at Teddy Bo Towers showed us a little ditty of a card with charms on it and I just had to share!  Thanks Jill.

I went into the store the other day and was shocked that 4 days before Halloween there were Christmas decorations.  Hundreds of gift package decorations out all ready and I picked up the adorable tree that is a metal ornamental package decoration but looks like a "take from the card" gift to me!  hehe

I followed this sketch but I missed the challenge :(  Note to self (get busy faster) :)
