Good Friday afternoon! I hope that you all are ready for a fabulous weekend! I know I am! We started our weekend a little earlier. We didn't have school today - Yea!!! I took this opportunity to sleep in and it felt so great! The weather has turned colder here the last few days so it felt so good to snuggle under the covers and sleep. Then I got up and lounged in my jammies with a cup of coffee and browsed blogs and found some new card sketches. I came up with some really easy Christmas card ideas to make for our school's silent auction. I will be sharing these later. I am going over to stamp with some friend's this evening and will be working on these. When you have been out of the stamping loop for so long, it is really hard to get back into it. It's like I have to re-train my brain to think creatively. So, I am hoping that I can get back into it this weekend. My son has a big soccer tournament this weekend so I will be kept busy but still hope to find time.
So, while browsing some of my favorite blogs I came across Becky Roberts' tutorial on making these little cards using the new Sweet Centers stamp set. I bought this way back when demonstrators could get it for $5. Yeah, I wasn't passing up that deal! But I haven't even broken it out yet. So when I saw her tutorial I thought that I would give it a try. I didn't have any Halloween candy to put in the little cup (which reminds me that I need to get some). But I did find some black jelly beans that my friend Judy Smith passed out at last month's shoebox meeting. Thanks, Judy!! I don't really care for black jelly beans but I thought they would work great for my project! Do you see that little tab on the side? Well, when you pull on that tab, the black jelly beans will come falling out! You don't even have to 'tear' into the cute little card to get them. Isn't that just so clever? I can't wait to try it again! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
