Another Day...another Sympathy Card

I usually like to keep them simple.  ESPECIALLY after finishing all my Christmas cards...oh boy!!  I put way more time into them than the sympathy ones.  Sure wish I could send a card to everyone but...no wayyyy! lol  And I do mean Christmas cards, NOT sympathy. lol

Make n Take at Sara's

What a perfect Saturday and Sunday.  I left for, my former TAC upline, now my A*muse upline, Sara's home in New Lisbon, west WI, for a great time of card and craft making.  Sara is my guru in the stamp world.  She gives me inspiration and TLC...PLUS she's a fantastic cook...YUMMY!!  Ok...now, should I diet???  I mean, really, all I had was, and keep in mind that this is all PERFECT food, sloppy Joe's, homemade chicken noodle soup (yes, even the noodles are homemade), Frog eye salad...don't ask, but YUM, pumpkin bars and a chocolate fluff bar of some sort...so...diet???  NAAAAH!  I look good in Pudgy!!  lol   Anyway, I wanted to post a few of the projects we achieved.  I have a couple to finish yet.  They needed coloring and I didn't want to color while I watched the Packer game...yeah, 10 and 0!  Woo Hoo!!!!

We made this simple and beautiful little box! Great gift giving idea!! The little drawers hold the little tea light candles or those yummy chunk mini candy bars perfectly.

A couple of simple but cute ideas.

Love this card...I'm gonna add some glitter and gems yet. :-) A girl loves bling!!

Gift Card Holder.  Wonderful time of the year for this!!!

I wouldn't have thought of pink for CHRISTmas but I LOVE this!!

Another beautifully simple card!!

Thanks soooo much, Sara!!!!

My January Library Stamp Camp Project

A*Muse has these great little calendars and I thought it would be nice for my ladies to make their own.  So much more could be done with these cute calendars but with my limited time I went with some pretty basic stuff.  But I think they'll have fun stamping and embellishing this little bit anyway.  You can't see the sparkle or embellishments well but it's there.  hehe  Hope you like!
