Happy Mother's Day Tea Cups!

Hi - It's been awhile since I've posted and so wanted to do a quick share of these cute Tea cups I made for a retreat getaway I went to last month!  These I set a each of my friends place and filled with some chocolate and a couple of tea bags as well.

Here's they are!

And a closer look a just one-

These were so fun to make and having my Envelope maker punch which provided a great curved bottom giving them the perfect finish.  To make the extra sturdy I cut these from 100 lb Whisper white cardstock
Each cup is attached to some layered doilies and tags that say 'You're Tea-riffic" which came from my fabulous Stampin'UP! set called 'A Nice Cuppa' it has a coordinating die set which is fun as too.

I'm going to be teaching a group of ladies tomorrow how to make these little cuties!  Can't wait to see all their teacups lined up -
Thanks for stopping by have a great weekend

Santa's List

Happy Saturday Everyone!  It's Halloween today - but I'm going to share with you a Christmas card from this month's kit cause it's such a terrific kit! 
Today I played with layers and border dies.  I love the prints in the paper pad from Echo Park that you get in this kit so much that I wanted to use as many as I could in today's card.   First here's a look at my card that I'm calling Santa's List.  

To see more details on how I made this card, head on over to my post today at The Rubber Café.

Christmas 3 x 3 note cards with matching envelopes

Happy Weekend Everyone!  -  Today I'm posting my first project using our latest kit from the Rubber Cafe'!  called Creating Christmas- so appropriate, for this amazing kit as it's filled with wonderful stamp images, and the perfect 6x6 pad from Echo Park to provide you lots of inspiration.
Here's a look a my notecard set.  These little sweeties are too cute measuring 3 inches square, and have their own matching envelopes as well, these would be great to put on any package or gift of any kind! 
 And since the printed paper pad from Echo Park's - Christmas is coming, is printed on both sides, when you make your envelopes they will be as if they have their own customer liner.
Check on over at my post on today with The Rubber Cafe' here to see the rest of my post.
