Overdue Birthday Gift

A friend of mine had a birthday back in September, every time we got together, I didn't have her birthday gift with me.....Finally, I remembered it.   She loves this gum and they have discontinued it and she hasn't been able to find it ...WHY, cause I bought up all the stores had on the shelves.  hehehe....

I used some Rich Razzleberry and Melon Mambo colors (which matches the gum packaging)
and the Great Friend and On you Birthday stamp sets and some Pearl jewels....

A Quick and Easy Christmas card

This card was super easy and quick to make....The card base is Cherry Cobbler 4 1/4 x 11, folded, whisper white - 4 x 5 1/4 and I put it thru the Big Shot using the polka dots embossing folder.   The stamped Image is from Perfect Punches #120516...This set is made up of 6 different greetings in a different punch shape.  We received this set FREE for attending Convention this year.   The stamped image and the scalloped circle layer behind it were made using scraps of cardstock.  I couldn't decide on a ribbon to use, so I dyed the white organza ribbon using a sponge dauber, cherry cobbler ink pad and rubber gloves!!!   It is really easy to dye the ribbon, just a little messy....

Grandsons Stampin'

Here are some pictures of my grandsons stamping.    They came by after my Mystery Hostess party and wanted to stamp....They were stamping away....then I noticed they were just taking the cardstock for the projects I had and in 2 days there were going to be 5 more people to make those projects.   Oh well, they had a good time.

Here Jacob is showing me the stamp he is using.

And here is Colin, stamping away....They had a great time and I have some artwork to share on my refrigerator.

Some Inspiration

It has been a while and I want to start giving things everyday during the month of December.   SO for December 1st, here are a few inspirations for your Christmas cards...
I have tried to turn the picture, but being computer/photo editing challenged, I cannot get it turned.   This is a pouch of tags most made from the Tags til Christmas stamp set which you can get along with the decorative label punch for an amazing deal....Just one of the bundles you can get until Dec 16th.    And most of these tags I used scraps of cardstock.....You know, all those pieces you have left over after a project that you can't throw away...

Two weeks ago, I had a craft day at my house.....Here is a picture of some of the cards we all were able to get done.

We were able to make more than the one card of each one of these.   A few birthday cards, some Christmas cards and some backgrounds too.
