Paper Trey Ink and Creative Cuts and More

Hi all!!! I am so excited to share these little creations with you...I had an absolute blast making them! I probably over did it with the embellishments, but I couldn't help myself...I just got carried away. If you click on the picture, you can probably see the deets better.

I used SU's Real Red for the cardstock. Then, using my Circle Nesties, I used Paper Trey Ink's "A Wreath for All Seasons." I used the wreath on the card and just gold embossed it and added some red rhinestones. I used gold paper using my Circle Nesties...(I found that gold paper at Hobby Lobby, Geez I love that store, oh...and that store loves me too). Then I used a doily behind the gold paper. Found some poinsettia's that I have had stashed for over a year and added some Diamond glitter and gold glitter dots . Next comes my fave...the sleigh from Creative Cuts and More (CC&M). I actually ordered it in a beautiful dusty gold, but it did not match the gold on my card, so I covered it with this gold paper. Used my circle nesties to gold emboss the Merry Christmas, which also came from PTI's "A Wreath for All Seasons." added a little holly and berry embelli. Put some Flower Soft Polar White on the bottom of the sleigh for reasons we know...and more poinsetties at the top...then I found these cute little packages at, of course, Hobby Lobby and put them in the sleigh.

What else can I say? Fun, fun, fun!!!! I have a whole lot of more CC&M die cuts that I cannot wait to use...they are SO inexpensive and make an addition to a card even better!!! Go by CC&M and check out all of the great stuff they have...another plug for them...they have this AMAZING Super "Killer Red Tacky Tape in different sizes...I have 1/2", 1/4" and 1/8". They have also just added some White Tacky Tape that you can just tear off. Just think, I could have put candy or cookies in that sleigh to give to a friend at work that would have made it even more special...but I liked the packages...shoulda found a Santa, but where would he sit? This is also for the Caardvarks Challenge here!

Have a great week peeps and thanks for your great comments and visits...I will be making my rounds again soon!

Goodbye to my Coworker

Hello all ~ I am posting this card that I made back in May of 2010. I know that I CASED it from someone, but I do not remember if you stop by and notice that it was CASED from one of your cards...Please let me know, so I can give you credit.

I used SU's Basic Gray cardstock for the card itself and SU's Blue Bayou was glued next. I took my white cardstock and used Paper Trey Ink's (PTI) Woodgrain Impression Plate using my Cuttlebug. The circles were punched with different sized punches using SU DP and PTI's 2008 Bitty Dot Basics and Bitty Block Basics. I used some dimensionals on some of the dots. The sentiment was computer generated. All in all a really fast "male" card...and that was just what I needed...took maybe 20 minutes.

This is short, I am making Cheeseburger Pie for my DD and her Hubby tonight and I have to get it in the oven. This is one of my favorite dishes and if you want, I will be happy to share this recipe with you.

Here is wishing you all a great "rest" of the week!!!
