Happy Friday everyone! My goodness it seems like this week just flew right by for me!  How have you guys been?

I'm so excited to show you my projects for my Sketches by Carly post today.  Yes, I said projects.  I am an airhead sometimes and was making the cutie candy holder below for the challenge when I went...duh!  It is a sketch challenge not just a 'use the image' challenge! you get two projects both using the super cute Chester from The Digi Garden

So...first, is the card.  You can see the sketch here and that I took some latitude on the sketch with the corner accents by using the moon and clouds.  The bats are a little further over than the sketch but I think you get the idea.  The patterned paper is from an old Basic Grey paper pack. 

Next, you see the fun Pumpkin Goodie Bag that I made using the same image.  I cut the goodie bag with my Cricut and then stamped the 'Happy Halloween' on a piece of cardstock which I popped up behind the window sheet.  I just tied it show with some Twine and tahdah!

So there you have it!  I hope you will check out what our other design team members make by going to the Sketches by Carly blog!

I hope to see you back here tomorrow...I have a super fun post planned!

Thought of the day:  What a wonderful thought it is that some of the best days of our lives haven't happened yet!

Hi Lorie, Happy Friday to you too! Your projects are both so much fun. I love the take on the sketch in the first card! You are really good at those sketches! And, oh my goodness, what fun on the goodie bag! Maybe I do need a - if I get one more thing, I'll have to have a bigger corner! Have a good day, and thanks for sharing your great projects with us :)
