More Gift Card and Money Holders



Aren't these a cute way to give a gift card or money?





Everything I've used here is from the PTI All Through The House Make it Market Kit.  This has been such a fun one to play with and has come in handy, since I am buying gift cards and giving cash this Christmas.

Thanks for coming by to look.  Your kind comments are always appreciated.

Sweet Treats for the kiddos

Here are some sweet treats I made for our grandchildren.



These were fun to make.  I used the Holiday Pin Ups set from PTI.  The dies I used were the Berry Wreath Tag and the Write Stuff Holder.  The Write Stuff Holder cuts the slits for the candy canes to slip through.  Hope they will be a hit with the kids.

Happy Birthday to my hubby

We got through Thanksgiving without any catastrophes, but what a busy time.  I haven't been in my craft room for over a week, and I'm starting to feel withdrawal.  The card I'm showing you today I actually made a couple of weeks ago, and I'm just getting around to posting it.  It is a CASE of one of Keeway Tsao's  beautiful cards. Click on her name to see her card.


I don't know why masculine cards are such a challenge for me, but they are.  I am stumped every time I have to make one.  This one is for my husband.  His birthday is on November 28th.  Happy Birthday, Larry!

Little Town Village

I've had so much fun with the Little Town dies.  They are addictive!  Here is what I have completed so far.





This is the School House.  Of course, it had to be red.


I decorated each window of this sweet Church with a wreath and bow.


The Gingerbread House took the most time.  
By the time I had all of the candy on the roof, I was a gluey mess.


The Herb Shop is complete with parsley, rosemary and thyme in the window boxes.


Here is the cute Sweet Treats Shop.


My quilt shop is called One Stitch At A Time.  
The quilt block on the end of the building is from the Quilted Summer set.

I used a circle die and cut a hole in the bottom of each building, so they would sit over a battery tealight.  Can't wait to see what they look like lighted.

Sending Holiday Hugs

I saw a post on Facebook last night about a little boy named Jacob Thompson.  He is 9 years old and has cancer.  His mom posted that he is at the end of his journey and they don't expect him to make it to Christmas.  He loves homemade Christmas cards and she was asking for people to send them to him.  Of course, I had to make one.  This absolutely breaks my heart.


I chose this set because the snowmen are hugging.  I think everyone needs a hug now and then.  I hope that they will bring a smile to Jacob's face.  If you would like to send Jacob a card, here is the address:

Jacob Thompson

Portland, ME 04102

Happy Birthday

I was watching some videos on different techniques the other day and came across one from Melissa Phillips.  The technique was Impressionistic Florals and it is gorgeous.  Follow the link to see Melissa's beautiful card and watch the video to see how she did it.  Here is one that I did.


Mine doesn't hold a candle to Melissa's, but it was a lot of fun and something that I will be doing again.  She has such a flair for putting things and colors together.

Gift card and money boxes

My granddaughter wants cash for Christmas this year, so she can go on a shopping trip.  That's fine with me and will make my life so much easier.  lol  I wanted a cute box to put the money in and this is what I came up with.


I used the All Around the House kit for the boxes.  These are fun to make and you can decorate them a million different ways.  The one on the right uses stamps and dies from the All Around the House kit.  The one on the left uses stamps and dies from the City Scene set.  My granddaughter has her room decorated in a Paris theme, so I thought she would love this box.

Thanks so much for coming by to look.  Your kind comments are always appreciated.
