Day, 255, Saturday, September 12

Today, I attended a workshop taught by Wendy Vecchi, from Studio 490. Her blog is She is an awesome teacher. If you ever have the chance to take a class taught by her, you will not regret it. The projects always look complicated and difficult...but she is amazing and everyone finishes their project and if you take the time to look through her will see that my project turned out just like hers!

The other items in the picture are the door prizes I won. The little green card was tucked in my I stood up and said "I love studio 490!" And I do!

This is my card for the fall card swap. I used the coordinations black magic paper and cuttlebugged it with the haunted house folder and swiss dots. I used the drippy goo punch on the bottom of the tag which is a Stampin' Up phrase. The pumpkin is a cuttlebug die...but it was too big for my window, so I cut the outter edges off of the pumpkin and cut the leaf off and attached it to the body of the pumpkin. I cut the scallop circle with the nestablities and used my Martha Stewart fence punch. I stickled the moon with distress stickles to make it glow. I sanded the haunted house to make the green paper show through. This card is a diaroma card and you can find the directions on, thanks Sue Nelson!
