The cutting cafe blinkie

Happy Monday everyone!! I hope you all had a wonderful crafting weekend!! It was a great weekend here. The Vikings beat the Cowboys yesterday so my weekend ended on a high note!! Better than that, my week is beginning on that same high note with a new project using an awesome printable set!! Todays project uses the Halloween Mini Colored Set Printable Stamps from The Cutting Cafe! I loved working with this set as I do all of Regina's awesome creations. For some reason I have been on a gaming kick, maybe its all the Halloween Parties I hear being planned, so I decided to stay with that theme. 
This week I made a 2 in 1 Game set. It started out as Go Fish, but ended up Go Fish and Memory!! I used an old deck of cards and covered the front with the printable stamp from the Halloween Mini Colored Set and then I colored the back with printed Halloween paper from DCWV. I couldn't find a box that fit the card shape since the cards were alot thicker after adding both papers to the front and back, and then I remembered these little baskets my sister had given me a few years ago. I stripped them down, repainted them and gave them more of a Halloween look. I added this cute lil witch from Stitchy Stamps called "Can I Go Too?". The cards fit in the little basket perfectly! I hope ya like it and thanks for looking!!
I hope you'll head over to The Cutting Cafe and check out all the great new things Regina is releasing in the store!! Don't forget that Thanksgiving is right around the corner and she's got some wonderful new releases that would help decorate your invites and tables this season!!
