Slam dunks and a Pretty Box

My dear friend Cathy closed down her scrapbooking room to make room for her real estate career and of all things she gave ME EVERYTHING.  I have spent a few months creating cards and projects using her paper, her sheets and sheets of punch out designs and stickers, words and phrases and all things fun fun fun.  She had a whole drawer full of Christmas dies and designs so I made her a lot of Christmas cards.  Below are a few more "slam dunks" using this n' that stuff from my friend Cathy.  And she will get these, if she wants them.  After all she gave me some fun, I can share what I made. 
She had sheets of stickers with a sports theme.  I think these cards came out nice, and will be fun to send to someone who has a child or grandchild in the sports arena. 

Some Christmas poinsettia punch outs, a little girl's confirmation dress, a colorful BOY piece of paper, a cute sticker sheet featuring a baby girl, a strip containing metal shapes for a baby boy and some flower punches.  Cute cards, I think and sooooooo easy to make.

 Sort of out of line, but I found a few sheets of covered fabric buttons so I made a bunch of flower and mounted them on handmade white boxes.  Cute...

More punches, stickers, strips.  
Same.... punches, stickers, strips. 
Thanks for taking a peek at my fun stuff.

Santa & Me

I am once again in "clean up" mode.  I have stacks of unfinished projects. Things I started on and then for some reason or another, put aside until "later",.  I love that word.  "Later" ..but eventually that will pop up and slap one in the forehead and say "HEY".  I organized my 2 trays of ribbons.  In doing so, I came across some really cute ribbons with images, words, themes so I put them aside and decided I would make quick and simply cards to offer on eBay.  This is one stack done.  Yay for me.  I cut the Santa Face from my Doodlecharms Cricut cart, the sentiment is rubber stamped and embossed and the inside is a computer generated sentiment.  I love the little ribbon that says "Santa and Me" and a cute little Santa image.  
Just so you all know... I AM working away, not sitting by the pool eating bonbons.
