cake time!

Today, I decided to make a few cards to have on hand for those special occasions when I don't have time to make a card. Here are a few birthday cards I made using black and white polka dot cards that I bought from Michael's $1 bins.

I used Stickles and sprinkled glitter on the cakes.

I visited Kelly Paper today. I can spend hours in that store. They have so many different types of cardstock. I've been to 3 different Kelly Paper stores, and all the employees are very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. They also have sample cardstock that you can take for free. I grabbed a bunch of their speciality paper samples - shiny papers, shimmery papers, etc. Thanks for visiting! Stay warm.

Double Take

Did I tell you that twins run in my family, and my husband's family? Here's a card I made for my cousin's twins. They have one of each, a boy and a girl! Today is their christening and 1st birthday.

Happy Holiday Wishes!

Tis the season of sharing! I found a great recipe in Better Homes and Garden's December 2007 issue. These coconut macaroons are so yummy!

Here is the link to BH&G's coconut macaroon recipe. I melted milk chocolate chips in the microwave and drizzled over the macaroons. Enjoy!

I finally mailed our Christmas cards yesterday. (Here's my cyber Christmas card to all of you!) This year's theme: birds and feathers. Oval by Amuse. Bird and sentiment are Rhonna Farrer. I stamped the bird on vellum paper and used white embossing powder. Inside sentiment: Happy Holiday Wishes, by SU!.

I made matching gift tags. Stamped sentiment by TAC.

I want to take this time to thank all of you for visiting my blog and wish you all a very Merry Christmas! May the spirit of Christmas stay in your hearts throughout the new year.
