Buy Whatever Cash Gift Holder

I had fun creating this cash holder card (with My Favorite Things' Christmas Cash kit) for my nephew's upcoming birthday.

 My Favorite Things Christmas Cash Kit, Photo Play Monterey Bay, Love Nicole Seaside Paper Pad, Copics

Simon Says (Wednesday): Anything Goes

Fun to use this stamp set I picked up recently, and to utilize this seaside paper I've barely cracked into.

These might not be the crispiest bills, but I don't think my nephew will care.

It's only going to be a tiny bit late. ;)

Thank you for your sweet visit~

Recipe Card Holder

You know how it is to think up something, but procrastinate because you are intimidated with the execution?

I dove in anyway.

Here's a recipe card box I created with Picket Fence Studios Cooking is Art image and sentiment.

 I've got three recipes handwritten so far...I hope to add a few more of my faves.

The Stamp Market Gable Card Box can hold recipe cards too!

That was exciting to discover. ;)

Thank you for your sweet visit~

Pineapple Duo

I had a scrap of aqua pigmented paper I had created a long time ago, so I used it for this project.

Staz-On black ink was best to sit on this textured piece.

I got two cards out of this session, because I used the diecut image and the "frame" left behind.

Brutus Monroe Alabaster Ink looks great on black cardstock!

A white Uni Ball pen outlining one image is fun to doodle~

DT INkspirational New and/or Welcome

I created this fun packaged gift for my faithful mail carrier,

with new products for our newest challenge at INkspirational!

My Favorite Things Christmas Cash Kit

 Since this lip balm is a bit thicker than the lip balm pouch from My Favorite Things,

I doubled up (one in front and one in back) to keep it secure.


We have new members this time; please visit our challenge blog to see them!

Please join us with your unique creation~
