Too early for Halloween?

Hi ya, Friends with Flair Friday...UNITY friends, of course! 
If you're joining in on today's hop and want to start at the beginning...make sure to go to the Unity blog! You can take a look at those sneak peeks of all the new fabulous stamp sets too...exciting! 

BTW, did you see Angela's pictures that she posted from CHA? Tons of pic's every day and it sure looks like they are having such a great time...thanks Angela for allowing us to be there with you from your pic's!  How fun!

I'm still fooling around with this blog and seriously was so frazzled with my changes (deleted some stuff in error, made everything post all over, still can't get my Hof3 b/g to fit in my columns...ack!!!), that I had to just take some time off and get totally away from my blog! I will slowly keep making changes, and I'm glad at least that I changed to a lighter background...easier on the eyes, especially when you get to be my age..ha!

Do you think it's too early to share something for a Halloween birthday? I looked in my 'stash' and found a few of these little paper mache bags...they hold gift cards perfectly! I re-used the plastic from the star bling, cut it up on the edges, put on some Glossy Accents, and placed it behind the sentiment as a layer.  This is entered into the Unity Hip Hop Sketch Challenge and the Play Date Cafe Colour Challenge (info below).

Here's a close-up of the sentiment and the green drink filled with Glossy Accents from Unity's "Cocktail Party" stamp set. I made the Glossy Accents kinda 'dripping' on the sentiment too (since it's a Halloween gift card holder):

Never too early for the holidays - just brings more fun, fun, fun to life! Beautiful work -- love the many layers with the bag, and way to use the splash of green.

All the best with the site -- lookin' good, but totally wise to take a step back and take it on a bite at a time.
