A Happy Witch

This past weekend I attended our NC Demonstrator's group Quarterly meeting in Goldsboro, NC. It was great getting to know several of the demonstrators that usually I only "see" online. It's so interesting to hear every one's stories of how they became demonstrators and just how much we have in common. I had a great time, and made some fantastic projects. And I was surprised when my entry into the 3-D competition won first place! I still can't believe that.
Onto my happy witch. I finished assembling all my Halloween pillow boxes for the trick or treaters. I had a bunch of leftover scraps and candy. So I started wrapping the Hershey's minis with the scraps. Then I needed a way to contain them. So I pulled this jar off my shelf and started constructing a punched witch. I wanted her to be a happy witch versus a scary witch. I sure don't think I'd be that happy if I had that big ole wart on the end of my nose! Maybe it's the chocolate that keeps her happy! And if you can't tell, she also has a hairy wart on her chin. I used the new large oval punch,various circle punches and the a tip from the large star punch (for her nose). I crimped some black paper and cut it into long strips to create her hair. Her hat is from the Eat, Drink and be Scary stamp set.

This is a set of mini cards I'm in the process of making. There will be a set of 4 cards in a mini pizza box. I haven't finished it yet, but when I do, I'll post a picture of the completed set.

The weather has turned a bit cool this week. I actually had to put on long pants yesterday! I'm putting off going on my bike ride this morning till it warms up a bit. I hope it doesn't take too much longer........or that bike ride just might not happen!
