Blog Candy and how to make the wreath

First of all, the blog candy I am giving away for the month of October will be: 1) Wood unmounted "Happy Grad" and Wood unmounted "Christmas Greetings". I will choose a name from the comment (by random generator on Nov. 1st. Remember that to be eligible for the candy, you must leave a comment and your email for the month the candy is offered.
Also I am offering Blog Candy for the month of November and the Royal Blog Tour. The blog candy for the month must be comments not made for the Royal Blog Tour. Only comments made under the Royal Blog Tour will be eligible for that candy. There are more requirements for the Royal Blog Candy so please read carefully when the tour is posted on the evening of Nov. 4th.

Many people asked how to make the wreath from my make and take. You need to cut out a circle from chip board. I used the sizzix circle Big XL and then cut a smaller circle for the inside. You will have to attach the cut off part of the circle together to form the wreath form. Then, put our paper in the folder, Put the chip board circle on top and run through the Big Shot. I then used a sponge dauber with artichoke to color the wreath and then real red to dot the berries.

At Last, some of my creations.

I have been so busy working on my blog cards and just catching up on things at home, I have not had time to just make cards for the fun of it. Here are two that I made for Halloween. One I will give to my daughter and the other to her boyfriend. The last card is the card I received from Stampin' Up for doing the WOW demonstration at the Baltimore Regional. Don't forget about blog candy. See post below.

General Baltimore Regional Swap & Blog Candy

Here are some cards that I swapped out from the general demo's at the Baltimore Regional.

Now here is the deal. I will give away something Stampin' Up if you can guess which card I have picked from all the Baltimore Regional Swap Cards. There are three posts (two under this one that have all the pictures from the Regional Convention. If more than one picks the card I am thinking of, then I will have a drawing. And don't go by which you think I like the best, as I picked the card randomly. You also must tell me what the name of the stamp set used on the card. If there is more than one stamp set used, please list both. The stamp sets are either in the main catty or the Holiday Mini. I am going to make you work for this one, but the prize will be worth it.. You have until  Saturday, 12am EST. Good Luck.... Yea, Blog Candy. 

P.S. Don't forget to put your email on your comment so I will know how to get in touch with you.
