Slacker - that's me!!

LOL. Seriously, I design for the greatest companies out there!! Between all of us having the stomach bug 2 weeks ago, then Dean getting pneumonia and now Joel and I both have some kind of nasty upper respiratory funk (I'm hoping it's NOT the flu and just a bad cold!!), I am so behind on everything and have missed more than a few DT deadlines.

A few of those deadlines were for some exciting Sneak Peeks for the October Release for Clear and Simple Stamps. Fortunately for me, CSS is AWESOME and has been really flexible with me and somehow decided not to fire me (yet!! LOL). Really, I love those girls!! But I wanted to take a minute to try to catch up a bit.

October 1st was Clear and Simple Stamp's reveal of the new Stamp of the Month - Spooky Sweets (along with a fabulous deal on the Yellow Red 1 Copic Bundle). Purchase both the Copic Trio set and the SOTM and save $4, an economical and fun way to build your CSS and Copic Sketch Marker collection at the same time. Use the Promo Code DTBlog1009 to save an extra $1 now through Oct 31 on the SOTM!

In addition to the SOTM, Sue Berker has designed another FABULOUS template this month - this adorable treat basket. Sue designed the basket to be a pumpkin-like trick-or-treat basket, but I tweaked it a bit to give it a Winter Holiday theme. Check it out:
I used the new Holly Jolly stamp set (releasing Oct 15) to create the little gift tag and filled the basket with some covered Hershey's Nuggets.

You can download the free template HERE.

In Addition, yesterday marked the start of Clear and Simple's October Take the Challenge, which I still haven't had a chance to play along with (sorry no sample yet!!). This month's challenge - "Let's Get Punchy" - is to
pull out your punches and get creative with them for your Fall/Halloween creation. Play along with the Clear and Simple DT in the Clear and Simple Stamps Group on Papercraft Planet.

And finally, for more inspiration using Sue's basket template AND to see the non-slacker DT members' TTC posts, head on over to the CSS DT blogs:

Thanks for being patient with me!! I hope to be back to my regular postings soon!! :-)
