Happy Friday!

I'm here, slow but sure. I think that I'm having some computer issues. I spent the morning with Dell and having them remotely go into my computer and work on it. It's still a bit slow, and they did not fix one problem that they needed to, so I'll have to do that again. I really don't mind them going in remotely ~ it sure beats having them on the phone telling me what to do and asking "what does it say now". That get's so confusing! So I might be back and forth sporadically til it's fixed.

But in the mean time, I have a couple of things to show you.I made some frapp bottles for a lady who buys from me at the Peddler's Mall. Her name is Amanda, and she's so sweet. She contacted me and wanted some cards so I made a few extra things for her to take a peek at ~ and she wanted the frapp bottles.

I used some of that Walmart paper again! Gotta love it. The image is from SU! Holiday Tag Team. I stamped it and colored it with my watercolors. I punched it out with my 1 1/4" punch and punched out a 1 3/8" circle of Chocolate Chip that it's mounted to. I adhered it to the bottle with my glue gun. I tied some ribbon at the top and used my tag punch (that I've had for years. You have to actually put it on the ground and step on it to punch!) and punched a piece of Chocolate Chip paper and a piece of the Walmart paper, I used my CAD to add a silver eyelet to it so the tags would not rip. The lid (sorry you cant see it) was done with my scallop circle punch, my 1 3/8" punch and my 1 1/4" punch. I think that she liked them, she bought 4 plus the carrier that I forgot to take a picture of.

Well, Amanda took the bottles to work and her friend would like to purchase 4 of them for her neighbors, also with the snowman theme. So here they are:They are pretty much similar, with different snowmen. I used the snowmen from Holiday Line up. I used the Walmart paper on these also. The tag was punched with my Marvy tag punch and I stamped the images from Holiday Tag Team. She did not want a carrier, so I did not decorate it ~ but I just gave it to her to easily carry the bottles.
Now these cards I made for Danielle to take to her teachers. We always do little things for her teachers each year and she wrapped the gifts the other day. Well, of course the cards had to match!

I stamped the image from TAC's Christmas Season set in blue shimmer ink and used clear EP to set it. I sponged Night of Navy ink around the edge of the panel and mounted that on to a piece of dark blue paper. The base card is Night of Navy layered with Ballet Blue and some Walmart paper that I also sponged the Night of Navy ink on. I ran the silver shimmer paper thru the CB and layered that on to a piece of dark blue paper as well. I added a length of organdy ribbon around the card and that was all. I thought that they turned out kinda nice.

Well, that's all I have for today. I hope to get some crafting done. We've got to take a trip out to my SIL's tomorrow and do some running around. So if I don't get back here ~ I hope everyone has a great weekend!
Hugs,
Joani

Love your Frappe bottles! I actually have a set to work on this year and am excited. So thanks for the inspiration! The reindeer card is beautiful! I love the colors and keep thinking I need to get some night of navy cs.

It's snowing here now, so it'll be interesting to see how driving goes to get the boys from school. Have a great weekend Joani!
