Christmas Gift Idea

I found this idea in Woman's Day magazine and ran with it. Inside the lunch bag is a ziplock baggie with all the dry ingredients to make gingerbread cookies. The recipe is included and all that needs to be added is the dairy ingredients. I made these for my clients and I hope I'll get to taste a cookie or two.

Christmas Cards 2010

I can't believe it has been so long since I've posted. I've been busy crafting but haven't thought about posting to my blog. Anyway, here is my 2010 Christmas card assortment. I started off with intentions of stamping and coloring all my card images but that ended when I realized I wouldn't be able to get 50 cards done before Christmas. Here is a sampling.

Here are a few up close and personal. The picture of the deer is one I actually took in our backyard and then made him festive. The Cuttlebug card I used embossing powder after I versamarked the embossing folder.

This is what I had thought all my 50 cards would be when I started. I color my cards using pencils and this would of taken me forever to finish them all.

Hope all of you have a very merry Christmas!

I recently joined a new church and an elder at the church took me under her wing. Miss Mae has been with the church since it's conception and she has helped me along in my "faith journey". I wanted to do something for her so she would know that I appreciate her. I made this bookmark "thank you" card.

The card is not my invention, the credit goes to those creative souls at Splitcoast Stampers (were you can find directions and plenty of other examples). The part of the card decorated with crosses is perforated and tears off to create a bookmark. A quick, simple card that would work great for any reason/occasion.

Miss Mae loved her bookmark and it now holds a place in her bible.

Happy Mother's Day

Been awhile since I've blogged. Honestly my mojo had taken a siesta on me. A few projects managed to get finished but nothing real exciting.

This is a Mother's Day gift for my mother-in-law. I started with a canvas kit from Quick Quotes though aside from the canvas pieces I think I only used maybe 4 or 5 die cuts. It came together quickly and I think she'll be pleased.

I hope you're able to click on the picture and read the poem, it is really sweet.

Happy Mother's Day all!
