I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. It was beautiful in So Cal and we're up for 70-80 degrees this week.  (BIG SMILE!!!!  OOH, MY CHEEKS HURT, I'M SMILING SO MUCH!... or is that my sunburn?  ha! )

A friend of mine got a promotion... and isn't that a wonderful blip of hope in times when you hear of people continuing to be laid off.  I made him a card/CD holder.... I wanted to use a technique that I saw on one of the Paper Trey Ink designers' blogs.  It was all about using your stamps to create background pattern paper.

The ink is Jenni Bowlin. The stamps are from  a combination of an Inkadinkadoo clear set stamp that I got at Michaels (the circle shapes).  The flowers came from a Michael's Recollections clear set stamp called "Flowers for You."   The sentiment and the flower next to the sentiment is from Lawn Fawn stamps.
Here it is....

These tickets are from Paper Trey Ink (including the sentiment).

I was super busy making Christmas gifts this weekend... (em... and sleeping... and watching Dexter until 3am...   :-)   ).  I hope to have some crafts to show this week as most of the things I worked on can't be showcased until after the gifts have been sent on their merry way....

Have a wonderful week....


  1. You've got to be the most thoughtful co-worker on the planet! Such an awesome way to celebrate someone else's success! Fabulous!

  2. This is a great idea for a CD holder. And your background paper turned out very nice. Good job.
