Snow Front Birthday

I know I should share the card first, but our sweet little Nike has to come first today.  So, before I share today's card, I have sad news to share.  I know several of you have asked about Nike's health in the past and I've appreciated it all so very much.  Sadly, on Tuesday, December 10th, but we had to say goodbye to our little guy.  He was such a sweet and loyal little dog.  If hubby and I were in different rooms, he would find a place that he could keep an eye on us both, or at least try.  Couldn't ask for a better friend.

He will be greatly missed.  Rest in Peace little man and remember, people wearing hats are good people too!  :)

So, on to today's card.  This is a birthday card for a friend of ours.  Hopefully it will arrive in time since I'm running a little late with all the issues surrounding Nike.

Playful Penguins Warm My Heart

These sweet little Playful Penguins will be gone soon with the Year End Clearance, so if you love them as much as I do, you best get them before they are sold out!

Today's card is one of our cards from this weekend workshop.  For our card today, it can be used as a simple friendship card or a Christmas card.

Whisper White Thick cardstock - 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Gold Foil cardstock - 4" x 5 1/4"
Brightly Gleaming Designer Series Paper - 3 3/4" x 3" (attach at the top of the Gold Foil)
Whisper White 3 3/4" x 5" - tear into pieces to look like snow hills.

Whisper White scraps to stamp and fussy cut the penguins.  No dies for these guys, but they are easy to cut.  Just remember to leave a little border, it looks better that way.

Want to know what warms my heart more than these penguins?  You guessed it, my sweet little Granddaughter, Lovelia.  She came to our workshop with her Mommy and I loved every minute!  Look how big she's getting.  2 months old already!

Thank you for looking in today!  Happy Monday!

Andes Mint Gifts

I've anxiously been waiting to share these with you, but I wanted to give them to their recipients first.  That was accomplished Saturday at our December Workshop.  I saw these on Connie Stewart's page and loved them so much I immediately went out shopping for mints!  Thank you Connie for such a fun and remarkably easy project!

To make the card on top of the box:

Cardstock - 5 1/2" x 6 3/8", scored and folded at 2 3/4"
Whisper White - 2 5/8" x 6 1/4"

Start with a piece of cardstock 6 3/8" x 8 1/2"
Score at 1 7/8", 2 3/4", 5 3/4" and 6 5/8"

Fold on each of the score lines with a bone folder giving a nice crisp crease.  Place a box of Andes' Mints in the middle and wrap the cardstock around the box.  Using Tear & Tape or Liquid Glue (your choice) seal the flap over the box - being careful not to get glue on the box itself or it won't slide out!  Don't wrap too tightly though, so the candy slides out easily.

Pick your favorite piece of Designer Series Paper - 6" x 6".  If the pattern makes a difference, be sure to turn it like the paper below so the pattern looks right on the box top.

Cut the 6" x 6" so that you have the following:

2 1/2" x 6"
1/2" x 6" (cut two)
3/4" x 6" (cut three)

On the 3rd 3/4" x 6", trim it to 2 7/8" pieces so you have two 3/4" x 2 7/8".

The small strips will cover the open spaces on the mint box.  The 1/2" x 6" go on top, the 3/4" x 6" go on the front and back and the 3/4" x 2 7/8" go on the ends.

How many will you be making?  I'm going to making more, that's for sure!

Plus... different paper, different occasions!  Birthday, Valentines, Anniversary, the list goes on and on!

Thank you for looking in today!  Have a Blessed Sunday!
