Wickedly Yummy!

Tonight was our downline meeting and we are asked to try and bring a project to share each month. I have so much going on right now that I didn't commit. But today while I was out and about doing errands...............I had an AHA moment and started thinking about Halloween and have been dying to use the new Wicked Cool stamp set. So I wanted to get those peanut butter candies that are wrapped up in the orange and black wrappers that they put out every year for Halloween but guess what. I am way too early for them so I started thinking and asking myself, " What can I use that is orange and black?" So I thought about the orange slices and when I was picking them up in the candy aisle at Walmart, I saw black Twizzlers! Another little aha moment. Now I hate black licorice (I don't even know if I spelt it right or not) but I bought me a bag of those babies and came home and cut them up into little bite size pieces. Then I mixed them with the orange slices in these long cellophane bags I got at Michaels awhile back. Then I got to use the witches socks and shoes stamp to adorn the top of the bag. I colored the socks with Pumpkin Pie marker, punched it out, matted it on a black scallop circle, punched holes for the ribbon and tied it to the bag. The finishing touch was the rhinestone I put on her shoes!! So what do you think? Of course between this and the swaps for tonights meeting, I have neglected my stamp set of the week. Sorry friends. I will try to get one out soon. I hope you had a good day.
