hip to be square...

I am hoping that Aimes smiled when she read the blog post title..more on that in a smidge...

I've been having fun making little gifties...trying to stock up for the holiday's and I really don't have fun mass producing so if I do a couple gifties a week, I should be good by the time Christmas rolls around...which by the way is in almost, gulp, 3 months?!!!!

I can't remember who's blog it was but the girl ran out of patterned paper and had to order more...dang, who was that? Anywho's, I probably have a small lifetime supply of the stuff and I'm trying to use what I have {notice I didn't say that I wasn't going to pick up anything new..sigh}

I do love MME...their papers are soo nice and fun:)
What's that? I KNOW...I inked up some Papertrey goodness...LOL...most of you know that I'm a coffee-a-holic but maybe what you all don't know is that I have tea while I'm at work..black tea...

Get it...wisdom = owls....haha..okay, okay, I just had to fit that sweet paper in somehow:)

Here's the little surprise giftie...

The Tea folder is wrapped up with some Stampin' Up twill...no sewing on this puppy as I created it while the kidlets were sleeping...{nice momma}...

The total icing on the cake, or Tea Folder is that it emcompasses many challenges...I'm trying to multi-task here:

First up is Paige's challenge of Cards with Pockets:

The next challenge is over on Yvonne Yam's blog....her Guest blogger is Julie Elak and her challenge is to create a non-card/layout:

Last but certainly not least....woot woot Aimes...I finally made it over to A Passion for Papertrey!!! The challenge is "Hip to be Square" :

PTI Blinkie!


Next up is another card:)

I used my Bo Bunny Peacock Lane papers...

The inspiration for the card is from a couple different sources...first up is the CardPatterns sketch:

Love the sketch and basically stitched almost every panel INCLUDING the scallop-ie peacock panel:)

The sentiment is from Schlosser Designs Furnishing Fun:


Did you know that Schlosser Designs is sponsoring the EtsyInspired Challenges??!!!!

This week's etsy shop is Pegasus Maiden...I picked out this headband:

aha...so now the Peacock Lane papers make perfect sense now, right?! LOL...thanks so much for stopping by and be on the look out for my other post for today...it is regarding the Skipping Stones Designs Blogs 4 Boobies fundraiser that ends today....and don't forget that today is the last day to enter the E.A.D Designs Farmer's Market Color Challenge!!!!

  6. Wowzie!! I love both the projects but the last card (for Card Patterns) is mind blowing. Gorgeous colors...

    PS: It is nice to have a lifetime's supply of patterned paper with you ;-) You can choose what you want to use, and not base your card on the colors of PP you have (which is the case when we have a handful :-p )

  18. Whoot Hooo! Of course this counts :>) Adorable with the owls. I am glad to see you using up your PP! The only way I will run out is if I stop buying it, which I am determined to do (for at least the next month - hee, hee, hee). Warning, you may start seeing paper from 5 years ago!

  19. Fabulous card and cute little tea package. I love coffee and hot tea. I think I actually enjoy good loose hot tea more than coffee...I am just addicted to the coffee though. LOL
    Thanks for joining us this week at Card Patterns. :)
