This and that

The holiday season is here!   I'm working on a few projects for the holidays, ever year I seem to run out of time, so I decided that I'd start early this year and come up with ways to get my projects done.  I have an hour at lunch, so I have decided to prepare and pack things for me to complete during my lunch time.

But before I share that, I want to share my card I made for OWH Sketch #148

This is the sketch details

I didn't use a "tag" but I had this die that I wanted to use and the sentiment was something I wanted to use as well.  

Here is my first project.  I saw this santa treat bag on Pinterest and decided to add "handles" which would be his suspenders, I thought they needed to be sturdy so I used some heavier weight card stock, I don't like the buckling, so I will revert back to a lighter weight cardstock. I addeed some white where his buttons goes that wasn't on the one I saw posted.
I bought cheap lunch bags and next time will spend a little more so they are sturdier.  I did put a cardboard piece in the bottom to stabalize the bottom.  I'm going to fill them with some other little projects I have wanted to do.  I also think they need a tag or something, so that is something I will add.

I have always wanted to wrap nuggets so here is my prototype of them.  They are in a pretzel bag and then I used my Nestabilities (Labels 8) to create the topper.  Not entirely pleased with it, but I have some time to develp this.

Along with my Christmas projects, I have my card making for Operation Write Home, my next deadline is for Valentine's Day, so in the next few weeks, I will be working on getting a few Valentine cards done and some general "love" cards.  If you like making cards, you should check them out here

The countdown begins!!!   I hope the two (maybe not even that) people that see/read this had a nice Thanksgiving! 

Stay tuned for my other attempts at being crafty...

Happy November! 
I'm not sure where October went, but it's over and here were are in November.    I made this card for my sister's birthday.  After taking the picture I wish I would have distressed the designer paper so you don't see the white "core" of the paper.  Details, details.

This stamp is from Bugaboo (not the digi versions) with the character "JJ" and called cupcake.  You can find the stamp here

The paper is all miscellaneous that I have in my stash, the card stock is most likely Recollections brand and not sure on the designer paper.  Stamped with Memento black ink and colored with my Copic markers.

I like using digital stamps too and on Friday's there is a freebie on the Bugabook website, check it out here

I need to get moving on my Thanksgiving cards as well as Christmas, not to mention working on Valentine cards for Operation Write Home. 

I hope you voted today.... listening to the results now, I will need to go to bed soon and find out the results in the morning.
