All Work, Little Play!

Wow!  This week has been crazy and I can’t believe FRIDAY is here.  I’ve had a lot of classes I have been working on that I’m really excited about as well as a few deadlines that I procrastinated until the bitter end.  Then lastly I had to take a few hours to clean my house.  Not something I enjoy at all.  However, the floors in my kitchen were DISGUSTING and I couldn’t stand seeing Alexis slide on the floor any longer without me cleaning it. 

I have a few things to share that I thought were cute and I have a beautiful card that I will share tomorrow.  The camera battery went kapooie as I was trying to upload tonight.  Go figure.  ๐Ÿ™‚

Now, let me announce something about myself that I think most my friends and family know!  I SUCK AT SENDING CARDS! I am great about sending downline cards, but I truly SUCK at sending birthday cards.  I am on a misson to redeem myself.  Tonight I worked on a few cards and I have too many friends and family that had to be born in September and October.  Jeesh!  I do love them all dearly! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is a simple little card with Pocket Silhouettes.  Isn’t that a fun stamp set?  I really love how simple the cards can be with this set.

Pocket Birthday














With the many craft shows coming up, I am trying to work on a few different things to have on my table.  Every year I usually do all the poopies and soups.  Last year my craft show partner in crime did the most darling ones.  I took a break.  This year I wanted to do something different.  I played with this idea tonight:  Note, I used the star punch for the nose.  ๐Ÿ™‚

Snowman Soup























Snowman Soup Back























Boy, that Top Note Die Cut is by far the best die cut I have ever used.  Recently a demo friend of mine came to my meeting and she brought all these cute little Christmas characters made with the Top Note.  I didn’t get a picture, so this is what my brain remembered.  Inside the tin will hold hot cocoa, marshmellows, chocolate chips and a candy cane.  Perfect little gift for teachers or a friend.  Maybe even the family member that doesn’t like the cold weather.  Dang… I should make one for myself. 

Then keeping on the hot cocoa idea, here is another little something:

Hot Cocoa Wrap























Once again I used that yummy chubby ribbon that is just awesome.  I also used the Christmas Rub ons "Sugar and Spice."  I can’t remember if this is the one in the Holiday Mini but I love them.  Again, the Top Note Die was used as a topper.  Simple little gift.  This is just a 3 1/2 x 12 piece of cardstock folded to fit a Hot Cocoa pack.  I used the Coluzzle to make my circle opening.  It wasn’t easy trying to figure exactly where the hole should be. 


Hope you’ve enjoyed!  Have a super weekend and check back tomorrow for another "pretty" birthday card.  ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. These are awesome…thanks for sharing and I will definately be casing the snowman soup for my xmas gift class. Thanks for sharing.

  2. These are beautiful projects, and I love that Top Note also. But I have to ask, what are “poopies and soups”? ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Oh my goodness, you sound like you’re talking about ME! My floor got washed yesterday after being let go for so long I can’t even remember. Ugh!
    And, I suck at sending cards too! I have good intentions. In fact, it’s usually one of my New Year’s resolutions, sort of. I plan at the beginning of the year to send out a birthday card to all my family members. I get through January and maybe a bit of February before I forget. So my lucky brother who has a birthday in January is about the only one in my family who gets a regular birthday card from me. LOL! it’s sad.

  4. I love your snowman soup idea and the cute single serve packages of hot chocolate! I’m not sure that I’ll have a craft fair to use the idea for, but it’ll be great even for teacher gifts! TFS! Love it!!
