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. 🙂
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! 🙂
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.
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. 🙂
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:
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. 🙂
