Hi Everyone! After the card I have a small amount of candy to give away and I need your opinions on something to do with candy, so please read to the end and let me know what you think.
For the card I used one of the stamps from the September Kit of the Month from Unity. The stitching on the pumpkin made me think of quilting so I tried to get a quilted look to the card. I'm not too sure how happy I am with it....But the stamp is wonderful. I'm going to have to try something else with it later!
Stamp: Unity September Kit of the Month
Paper: Chatterbox, Bravo Burgundy, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip
Copics: YR5,YR16,YR18,YG95,YG97,R46 w/E08 over it, R59 w/E09 over it.

On to the candy! First I will tell you the story so you can laugh at me! I ordered this sentiment set from Doodlefactory and got it, but when I went to use it I couldn't find it anywhere. It was bare rubber and I had no memory of mounting it on EZ Mount which I always do with these. I finally dcided that maybe I threw the envelope away with the stamps still inside because they are so thin. I was furious with myself, but decided to order it again because I really liked these Halloween sentiments! Well, guess what? I had mounted the first set and put it in a CD case but not labeled it or catalogued it in my 3 ring binder (I NEVER forget to do that!) and of course I found it just as my second set arrived. So, even though it will be pushing it to get this to you before Halloween I would like to give it away to one of you. Just tell me you favorite Halloween costume (yours, your child's, one you saw somewhere...) I will draw randomly Thursday afternoon and if I get the address from the winner fast enough will put it in the mail Friday morning. Oh, here is the set - it is bare rubber:
And my last question... I really need your opinions. My stamp collection is really taking over the dining room. Some of it consists of some wonderful stamps that I was seduced into buying by other ladies fabulous creations but I have since realized are really not my style. Many of them have never been used, but are not in their original packages because I store all of my stamps in CD cases. Is is weird or improper to offer them as candy if they are not in their original packages? I really don't know the etiquette on this so I am counting on you.
Thanks so much!
