Wonderful Bag!

My friend Laurie had a get together where we made the most wonderful bags! Can't you just imagine this with a pound of chocolate in it? I originally made it thinking I could give it away as a gift, but now I will just need to make another one before I can gift this one away! I like how we used the tab punch for this too. I've been discovering many new uses for that punch lately. We used Choc. Chip and Vanilla for colors and antique brass jumbo eyeletts. Have a great Monday!

Happiness Always-thank you

Our weekend was good, just action packed as usual. This was a thank you card I made when I first got this set using the new In Colors Riding Hood Red and Kiwi Kiss, along with some Summer Sun, and the hostess set Happiness Always. I used and layered several punched pieces to dress up the sentiment. I was happy with the way it turned out.
At first, I thought I wouldn't like the red much, but it turns out that it goes with many of the Fall color schemes I've been working on lately very well. Have a great Monday!

Upsy Daisy Birthday

Well, I told you I love the Top Note die, now that the Big Shot is a Stampin' Up item! I finally got to post a card I made for my husband's aunt, who is having a birthday. I hope she likes this. I used the new Tangerine Tango and the background Spotted, pluss designer paper in the wild wasabi and the WW in color double stitched ribbon. I used the Summer Sun and edged it with the Red Riding Hood Red, and the new in color green for the "Birthday Celebrations". It was a fun one to make getting to play with new things!
We are all starting to get colds, and slow waaaay down at my house. Even my husband who is normally healthy as a horse, was the first one to get this! I feel like a nurse somedays doling out vitamins and cough drops to the kids before school!

Polar Bears out our front door!

Hi there, I am so sorry I haven't posted in a while. I had to get my Kindergarten class started, and my own kiddos off to a good start this year, so I haven't gotten to take pictures of the cards I've made. I actually have made some projects I'm excited about. I received my Big Shot, and love the Top Note Die! Actually there's nothing about it that I don't like! It makes even using the cuttlebug embossing folders much easier!

This young polar bear was swimming in the lagoon in front of my house last Saturday...the wildlife officials hung out for over eight hours in front of my house too, before the bear wandered off without bothering anyone late in the evening. What a treat! Kind of scary too, one has never been this close before!
