"Faboolous" Fright Night Card

Even though I made my card several days ago, it has been such a crazy week here at Gardenias and Glitter that I almost forgot to post my submission to the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge! This week, the designers at that fabulous blog challenged us with a "Fright Night" theme.  

Now, it might sound a little strange, but I am not really into scary Halloween.  I prefer my Halloween frights to be on the cute side, so I went straight to my Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge to put together this "frightful" scene. (I am surprised how much I use that cartridge!)  

Our little witchy poo seems to be shocked that her conjuring stirred up these frightful ghosts (I think her frog familiar may have been too!)  She appears to be more of a glamorous witch than a scary one- note the "jewels" on her hat and matching scarf and shoes! 

So I will be joining the designers over at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge.  Click on the link to see some of the amazing and frightful creations these artists have made! 

Tomorrow's the big day!  I am hoping to have a cute treat to share with you!  

Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy Halloween Tablescape

I love polka-dots.  They make me happy. So does Halloween, beautiful fall weather and the fact that my oldest daughter is visiting.  With that in mind, I decided to enjoy a happy little Halloween dinner on the deck. It has been a long time since I posted a table scape and I want to share this simple little happy table.  

A couple of weeks ago, I grabbed up the remaining yardage of this polka dot fabric from Walmart, of all places.  I wish I had bought more when it first came out.  It is perfect for a Halloween tablecloth, quilting or a number of other projects I can think of.  

This candelabra came from Target. I had a difficult time finding Halloween taper candles, finally stumbling upon them at Michaels (for 50% off!).  Again, I should have shopped in August, there were more options available then, but I really like the orange with black stripes. (Somebody remind me next year!) I made the witch hat last year (you can see that on my Halloween Eve post here.) There was quite a breeze on…

Bee-Lated Again! (And a Free-Bee!)

You may remember that I promised to tell you about the party favors from my daughter's "Bee-lated Birthday". Not only was I late with her birthday party, but I am late with the promised post as well!  With the bee theme that we had for the party, and my new found fascination with making my own bath soap and sugar scrubs, I decided to make little bee-themed soaps as a party favor.  

I have shared with you a couple of times how easy it is to make your own "designer" soaps. For these, I got a bee soap mold, some goat's milk soap base and my new favorite Honey Almond soap scent.  I purchased all of these from Micheal's (don't forget your coupon!), but I am intrigued by some molds that I found on Amazon.  Be sure to shop around and find what makes you happy. 

They are simple to make- melt one pound of the soap base in the microwave according to package directions (30 seconds, stir: 30 seconds, stir, etc. until completely melted).  Add your favorite scent, …
