Whimsie Doodles Challenge

It is Whimsie Wednesday and time for a Whimsie Doodles Challenge. Today's challenge (#52), issued by Doodle-licious Diva Sheri, is to create a Halloween 'trick or TREAT'. Check out the Whimsie Doodles Blog to see the Doodle-licious Divas' spooky creations. Here is mine.

I don't know about you, but I cannot resist Brach's candy corn and pumpkins. To make this TREAT, I recycled an olive jar. Wendy shared a tip for removing odors from jars. After you have removed the labels and washed the jar, place newspaper in the jar, put on the lid, and place the jar in the freezer. The pungent odors (like olives) will be gone. Great tip, Wendy!

The image on the lid is from the Whimsie Doodles September release, Halloween Minis. I printed the image, colored it with Copic markers, and cut it out with Nestabilities. I added a bit of Stickles to the image, tied on raffia with a couple of buttons, and I had a cute, quick TREAT.....easy peasy! This would be a great gift for a teacher, neighbor, or friend........IF you can resist eating the candy and leave enough to give away!

This is a busy week for all of my Design Teams. Whimsie Doodles, Your Next Stamp, and Treehouse Stamps have new releases, challenges, and there is a blog hop! Check back for more creations and fun!!
Have a great afternoon! LC
