Monday Monday

Good (chilly) morning everyone. It is very, very chilly out this morning. They said that we were to hit about 4 degrees last night. So we slept with the heater on. Of course I've got my own personal heater - I'm always sleeping with the covers off. I'm not sure if it's that "time". You know, I am getting older ~ but I'm not cold. Everyone else is always cold - and I just sit with a shirt on as they've got 5 layers of clothes. A friend back in California once said that "your having your own personal summer".

I want to show you a few things that I've done. Yes, they are Christmas - and I hope to soon be starting on Valentines. When I was out shopping yesterday I found some cute pink tins at Big Lots. I'm always on the lookout for something. So, I've got my start for that holiday.

Here is another of the Music Makeover boxes that I did. They are so fun and easy to make. I made these for a couple people at hubby's work. When I was blog hopping and was on Lauren Meaders site I saw that she has the templates available to purchase. I thought that using those would make a great little gift. She has many different ones available, you've got to check it out.

I used the Walmart paper pack. When Betty stopped by last week I think that we used up that pack, there is just a few scraps left ~ so I probably won't be talking about that again. I used my Mega Scallop Circle punch, my SU! scallop circle & square punch, a foam snowflake (that I've had for years! From WAY back when Danielle was little!) and a crystal brad. The stamp set that I used was SU! Punches Three. I stamped the image in Real Red and Glorious Green twice. I then used my scallop square punch to punch out the images, then I cut the rest of the way with scissors so I could layer the 2 colors together. You can see that I stitched around the top flap of the box too. I used Velcro to keep it closed.

I made matching cards too!

For these cards I used the SU! set Sleigh Bells Ring. I stamped them with versamark and heat embossed them with Judikins gold EP. When I folded the card (Glorious Green and Riding Hood Red) I cut off the edge about 2 inches so you can see the inside. I layered it with DP and then layered the image on to cs before attaching it to the card. I added a white piece of paper inside and stamped the sentiment at the lower right hand corner. For just a touch of bling I added 3 baubles above the image panel and I was done.

For this little cutie I robbed Danielle's Darcies stash again! I just love snowmen, and this little guy is adorable. The base card is Bashful Blue. I layered some Walmart paper on to Old Olive cs and added a piece of giant rick rack. The image panel I colored with my watercolors and layered on to a piece of Certainly Celery. For the sentiment in the corner I stamped 'tis the season from my old SU! polar bear set and layered that on to Certainly Celery. I punched a piece of Old Olive out with my designer label punch then a piece of Certainly Celery with my circle punch, and I added the white dots with my white gel pen before adhering the sentiment. I thought that this turned out kinda cute, it's a fun card.

Well, I think that is enough for today. I still need to head off to the store for those last minute stocking stuffers. I think that stockings are so important. Even if it is little stuff, it goes to show that you took the time to find and pick out items for that person. Items that you know they will like and need or use. I had the same stocking for 30+ years, and when we moved out here my stocking was lost. I was actually heart broken. And to top it all off that first Christmas my stocking ended up empty. Hubby thought Mom got the stuff to fill it and Mom thought hubby bought stuff for it. I was sad. The first time in all those years that my stocking was empty. Now everyone makes sure that it is filled....

I'm sorry your stocking was lost and that it was empty. If I could have I'd have filled it with smiles for you. Your cards are soooo cute.
