Thanksgiving Goodie Bag

I made this "treat" bag for a friend who is very special to my heart.  She has given me much encouragement and kindness so I wanted to repay some of her kindness with a small bag of goodies.  The "Happy Thanksgiving" stamp was offered by Cindy at her Scraptastic Monday Challenge this week.   I used it to label this bag made of craft card and DCWV Stack 7 papers.  I made the flowers (see this post) before.  This time I added brown ink to bring them into the fall coloring and added two leaves cut from Cuttlebug fall leaves dies.  The bag measures 4" wide by 5" tall by 1" deep.  I threaded twine through two side eyelets for the handles.  Thanks for Janis' encouragement to enter this at                                                    http://joyfulstamper.blogspot.com/

Card-In-Waiting 2

Another "card-in-waiting" today.  I seem to always need a card for a guy, but never enough time to come up with ideas.  This card was an offshoot of my efforts to organize my Cuttlebug folders. I was making examples of each folder for a binder and I thought combine these two folders Sue.  So I did. 

It's a very simple card to make.
I used only two colors of card stock (craft and a yellow from Color Bok).  Standard mat sizes: the yellow background (4" x 5.25") I ran through the Cuttlebug folder "Snowflakes" then inked with Ranger vintage photo ink.  The patterned paper (3.75" x 5") is a scrap from my stash.  The yellow center strip (1"x 5.25") is embossed with the Cuttlebug border set "With Love", and inked the same way as the background paper. HINT: emboss the image first then cut the strip.  The circles (2.5" and 2") were cut using the Cricut with the George cart and inked.  Now the fun part.  The image is a rub-on from a set of vintage images sold at Michaels (they were by the unfinished wood shapes).  I used a large metal medallion brad with a jewel center and small gems to finish off the card.
There are no sentiments on the card yet.  I'm creating a stash of cards for "emergency" situations when I don't have time to create a needed card.  This is going in the masculine section of the stash.
Thanks for stopping by.
