you're my cup of tea...espressing my thanks...and a RAK

So are you ready? I have a couple things to show you...
I finally played with the fabulous gals over at EBTKS!

You know me and my love for challenges:)


This is a small giftie...it is 3.5 x 3.5....the patterned paper is American Crafts...including that sweet owlie! Last week when I was out and about with Elaine, I discovered the AC pack of papers at M's for 40% off...{insert girl ninja pic here..LOL}. The striped satin ribbon is a vintage m's $ bin deal...

This already went postal to a gal...hope she thinks it is fun...hey happy mail is way better than bills!

This is the interior of the 'card':

Next up is CPS...I happened to put together my CPS143 project by accident...LOL. My dd's end of the season soccer party was Sunday afternoon.

I wanted to put together a Starbucks gift card holder for one of the soccer moms. She gave my boy a ride home one evening..I tell you..this gal IS super woman...super mom...super teacher...super everything. Anywho's...I wanted to put together something 'snappy' for her and happened to catch sight of the print out I made of all the challenges I wanted to participate in this week....BINGO!

You gotta love the There She Goes coffee set...Jessica, the owner is a fellow Washingtonian...woot woot!


Originally I was going to use another Eskimo Kisses panel for the circle but it just didn't 'look' right...so I used my SU Snowflake punch...you know, the one that I just 'had to have' and haven't used it much. I glitzed it up with Martha glue and silver glitter...topped it off with a PTI vintage button and SU twine.

Here's the interior...that small strip of BG is a scrap...it holds the flap down:) You'll no doubt be seeing a ton of these...I have yet another Gift Show in a couple weeks...guess what I'll be doing my Thanksgiving weekend inbetween ninja shopping? Yup, making projects for the show.

I wanted to share another RAK that I received last week...I tell you it was Happy Mail week!!!!

Check out the SWEET clean & crisp card I received from Steph:

She also sent me a bunch of goodies too! OMGoodness!!!

I know I've mentioned it before, I have a horrible memory...I was trying to remember how Steph and I met...I think she found me or did I find her? Anyways, I'm such a lucky duck...I was taking pics of the goodies but the packaging was glaring all over the place..yipes..but let's just say the girl knows me and you'll be seeing some new goods on some projects soon...thanks again Steph!!!!!!!
