December Craft Night Projects

Last night was our annual Cookie Exchange at our Stampin Night. Yummy! We also got in some crafting and made 4 projects. Fun. The Christmas Card was my project, the Reindeer gift card holder/bookmark was from Sue Kment, the reindeer with M&M's was from Barb Nesta, and the cute Merry Kissmas with chap sticks and candy was Virginia McKay and Nancy Catlin's project. Such cute projects.

Birthday Card for My Bestie - Sue

Here is the birthday card I made for my bestie and stampin buddy, Sue Kment.  (she had it posted on her blog and takes such great photos in her photo box that I borrowed it!)  We have been stamping and crafting together for about 13 years and have enjoyed every minute of it.  Her birthday is next week but we celebrated by going out to dinner on Sunday night.  We usually go to dinner on our birthdays and sometimes in December things get crazy in our life's and calendars so we did it early (we even had to reschedule this dinner twice!)  Happy Birthday Sue! Enjoy your special day, I hope it is as special as you are to me.

Urban Paper Copic Class by Sue Kment

Tonight I attended a Copic coloring class at Urban Paper in The Dalles, taught by my bestie Sue Kment.  It was fun we made 4 cute Christmas Tags.

Maddie's Christmas Wish List

Maddie and Papa went to Big Jim's after school on Friday and this cool little classic pickup was there. Maddie told Papa she wants this for Christmas even though she is only nine!

Birthday Cards

We have 4 family birthdays this week. Here are the cards I made for them plus one for my friend Barb.

Bottle Of Boos

I found this idea on Pinterest and thought it was so cute. I cut the images and letters on vinyl with my silhouette machine. I love that machine!

Sympathy Cards

I made a couple sympathy cards tonight. Unfortunately I need to send out a couple this week.

The first one is from a Stampin Up set and the designer paper is also Stampin Up.

The lattice front card is cut from my silhouette cameo and the sentiment is a retired Stampin Up stamp. The designer paper is also Stampin Up.

Back To School

I made this card for each of my two granddaughter's who go back to school on Wednesday. Where does the time go? My oldest is going into 4th Grade and the youngest into 2nd Grade, the cool thing is her teacher this year was also her mommy's teacher in 2nd Grade. They are both excited about that!

Note Box

I made this note box for my Dad's girlfriend Sue. Today is her birthday so I thought I would drop this off to her at work. I tucked a little gift certificate in it for her.  The box is ready made from Close To My Heart, all you have to do is cover it and decorate it.  This fits 6 note cards with envelopes which are from Stampin Up.  There is also a place you make for a decorated ink pen.  Fun!

My bestie Shelley is now as old as me! My birthday is February and her's is July so for those five months she reminds me that I am older than her. She is a Mickey Mouse fan but boy don't give her anything with Minnie on it! Here is her Mickey card I made her.
