The challenge this month is to use a paper bag in honor of school starting again ....... as I sing in my head "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year"..... oh wait...... back to reality..... none of my kids are in school yet :) Although Emma does know how to use scissors .......we have had to fix many "hairstyles" that she has given to Anton. And Anton understands drawing ....... on walls and Ava, well she eats crayons. We have a laugh a minute around here.
I have been working non stop on a hostess gift for my dear sweet friend Nela........ I love her so much and really do not get to see her as much as I wish. I took the cards up for Curt to see and he asked me how I was going to keep them together, like I had gotten that far in my thought process. I guess he could smell the burning coming from my brain so he said how about a paper bag...... WHAT ?? A P-A-P-E-R B-A-G ...... UREKA ...... today is the 25th and I need wrapping for Nela's cards and the challenge is using a paper bag. So I "hopped" on down the stairs and put this little bag together. I love when my husband has the perfect idea and now I get to be a part of the party this evening!!!
Here are a few of the cards that I made ...... the photos are really dark because the weather is so bad here today and I have NO light in my house.
|Baby Girl card with the new mat stack and I used Daily Designs|
|The Larkspurs are embossed with white .... really pretty IRL but do not show up too well here :(|
And here is the paper bag all dolled up and ready to give to my friend tomorrow!!!
And now off to hop around some before bed. I am getting up early in the morning to make chocolate cupcakes with Swiss Meringue Nutella Buttercream ........ YUMMY!!!!
