Halloween Birthday Gift!

Hello and Happy Wednesday Everyone! Heck....
HAPPY HALLOWEEN to you! :o) Today is a very
special day for one of my very special friends! She
was born on Halloween! What a surprise that must
have been to her parents! LOL Any way... I've told ya
that I needed to get something made for her and I had
pretty much 1 day to do it in..... I know, I know... Terrible
friend! It's NOT like I didn't know when her birthday was...
It's totally easy to remember! Or so you'd think! LOL
Well, since I only had so much time to do it in
here is what I created for her....

I had this can and said to myself... self
you could totally make something out of this can
which is how this whole thing got started! LOL
(Bear Cut @ 6")

Create a Critter sooo, that's what inspired
me to design this with that in mind! I told her
I had gotten this cartridge (Create a Critter 2) 
and it's on her list of cartridges to get, 
so I thought it would be
fun to cut out some of the animals and put them
on the can for her.... The inside is filled
with crafting stuff...
(Owl cut @ 6")

Of course it turned out a little
differently than what I had in mind...
But since time really wasn't on my side
I just went with it.... :o)
(Turtle Cut @ 6")

I added gems, stickles, ribbon, twine,
googlie eyes, action wobbles to all of them
(Bee cut @ 6")

Designer paper is DCWV, I used 2 12x12 sheets 
to cover the entire can & lid..... I added some
ribbon as the border around the top & bottom
of the can, which now I'm not sure why I did???
(Ghost cut @ 4")

Then, I HAD to make her a card to go
along with what I started.... The card is
cut from my Cameo, so are the words....
The Spider is from Create a Critter 2
Cut @ 2 3/4"

I HAD to fancy up the inside a little
for my girlfriend... She's totally worth
doing the inside of a card! :o) The Monster
was cut @ 2 3/4" , the stamp is from 
My Creative Time... The inside saying is
from my Hallmark program....

Well, let's hope she likes it! Thanks so
much for stopping by and seeing what I
created for my friend! I hope everyone has 
Have an AWESOME DAY!!!
