Buttons and Bows

Buttons & Bows is the challenge today over at Paper Therapy. This week your project must include a button AND a bow. How you do it is up to you! Come join the fun this week. The DT have created some stunning pieces for your inspiration. The links are in my sidebar --->

This card was created with Christmas Fun in mind. I didn't want to use traditional colors. So this paper from PTI was perfect. The buttons, cardstock, and ribbon are also from PTI.

I hope your Thanksgiving was a splendid one filled with laughter and joy!

Christmas Cards Atlast!!

Finally!! I have selected a design for my Christmas cards this year.
Here it is! Sweet and simple for mass production. The wreath stamp was done in Old Olive, then I placed the Merry stamp inside, and went with stickles for the berries to add some holiday shimmer and shine! The rope is taped to the back and then a bow made. Both being stuck on with a glue dot. The bow hides it. I decided to emboss the red cardstock to give a richer feel. Now it's time to get busy! You now know what I'll be working on for the next week or so.

Have you decided to make your own cards this year? If so I'd love to see them. Leave a link and I'll be sure to check it out. Happy Crafting Everyone!!

Thanksgiving gift tin

This cute little gift tin is going to be filled with uber yummy Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars. Just a little gift for my sister. The stamp is from Verve and the paper is from DCWV. Buttons and twine from SU, ribbon from my stash, and nestabilities dies.

This would also make a wonderful hostess gift for the Thanksgiving holiday too. There are so many people to be thankful for in our lives. Which is why I just love Thanksgiving. What a perfect time to make something extra special to tell those special people in our lives how much they mean to us.

The tin is actually an old Fannie Mae tin that I altered. The perfect size for my Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars. It's not too late to make a gift for that special someone. If you do please leave a link so I can come see. ~:0)

Thanks for stopping by!
