Wednesday’s Design by Robbie

Well it is almost that time of year. I don’t know about you but I have been running a lot of little errands lately to pick up one more thing I thought of. While I have a lot of gifts for people I have not wrapped one of them. I guess I will need to turn on the music and get busy.

I was looking through my Papercrafts magazine the other day and saw a cute tag. I thought it would make a cute card. So I sat down at my table and started creating. I think I have spelled one of the reindeer’s name wrong but the card is cute anyway.

Stamps: Festive Favorites, Basic Background, acrylic alphabet set Paper: Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Brushed Gold Ink: Craft Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip Accessories: Creamy Caramel and Real Red Markers, Real Red Brad, Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon, red gingham ribbon, Stardust gel pen, linen thread, hole punch.

Thanks for looking!

Teacher Gift

Well if you have not seen them here they are, I picked up these from Michael’s for $2 a package (you get 6 of them in a package). I have seen these ornaments on other blogs and I have decided to give them as teacher gifts. I also made a sour cream container and I filled them with these wonderful truffles that I found at BJ’s. Hope you enjoy 😉

Pink and Green Monday

Time is just flying, I hope you guys are all ready for Christmas and you are not like me, waiting to the last minute to get things done. I still have 3 people to buy for, I am going out again tonight when my husband gets home in hopes that I can finish it up…

I have a little story for you that I am going to share. The kids Grandmother sent some packages so I put them under the tree thinking that they would be okay, well Sam quickly found the one with his name on it and he opened it, Sloane thought that she should ask first and I told her that she should wait until Christmas, I was surprised but she said okay and did not put up a fuss. Eric called that evening (he was on travel again) and I told him about the package being opened so he said let Sloane open hers. When I got off the phone I told her to go get her package and bring it upstairs. I told her that daddy said she could open her gift from grandma, at that very moment I explained to them that Santa does not like it when little boys and girls open up packages before Christmas, Sammy quickly got up turned on my closet light and he told his sister to hurry up and come in, he closed the door and they proceeded to rip into the package. Sammy and Sloane come out of the closet with all the trash and the box and quickly put it in the bathroom trash can. This all happened so fast and all I could do was sit there and laugh. I thought to myself man that Sam is sneaky 🙂

Thursday’s Design by Candice

This card was done at one of my in home workshops in November, originally I only had the diamond dust on some of the branches, one of my girls added the diamonds dust all over the tree and what a difference it made to the look of the card. How pretty with all that sparkle going on. This was quit easy to do but because of the size this was done as a 6×6. Hope you enjoy 🙂
