Guess Who's Back? :o)

Finally, making it to my blog. What a crazy hectic life!! LOL! We arrived home from Illinois on Friday night. Brrrrr...it was sooooo cold up there. Beautiful & white, but brutally cold. I miss the snow, but not the cold.

On to crafting...
As many of you know I belong to a Fairy God-Auntie program and have a sweet little girl (Agustina) this year. We share letters & gifts with a 3rd grade class in California to let these children know that we care about them & to encourage them in school. I had a non-stop crafting weekend...they get out of school on Friday. YIKES! I had to get my package mailed yesterday. Good thing that I work well under time constraints. LOL! I was so busy packing the box that I forgot to photograph some of the items. :o(

Here are a few things that I made, will share more later.

Nugget Box:

Nugget Tin
Hershey Nuggets
Stamps: PaperTreyInk
Scallop: Cricut
Large Circle Punch
Ink: Memento
Velvet Ribbon

I decided to send a little something to all the children in the class. These ornaments are easy, peasy!! The cutting was time-consuming though.

There is also a Santa & Snowman in this cute set. I plan to make a few more for some children in the neighborhood.

Printables: (AimeeAsher.com) Doodle Bee Art Studio
White Cardstock
Laminate: Xyron
Gold Cording
Crop-A-Dile or Small Hole Punch
I added a little bling with Sakura Glitter pens.
Good scissors. I used my Tonics. Love them for detail cutting.

Time for me to get busy...have to get a few Christmas decorations up today. I'm running way behind.

Thanks for stopping by....blessings,
