Whew . . . I can play again!!

My Christmas Card Stack class is over (the first one anyway) so I can play for the next 2 weeks -- well sorta anyway. I kept saying every day this last week I was going to post a couple of cards and those "little jobs" kept popping up so it never happened. Actually, I spent over an hour this morning writing a post telling you all about one of my "little jobs" that took a week to get done. Then right after I uploaded pics of my cards, somehow I deleted the whole post. I was so surprised that I just sat there and stared at my PC and kept saying, "it has to be in there someplace." Nope, after an hour of searching I decided not to even post. Well after going out for a Sunday picnic at my daughter's, I decided to try one more time. So here I am.

As far as my little job, I'm not even going to tell you about it. I already did and nobody looked at my post (or could find it), so to bad. It's not going to happen now. But I did have an awesome time at my daughter's. She was doing a little get-together for my granddaughter to say goodbye, as she is leaving for Florida in the morning. Very sad for me as I have a lot of good memories of our special times together. I will miss her very much and told her I would try not to call every day.

Here are my pictures "again."  The first one is another of my cards the ladies did yesterday at my Christmas Stack class. It uses the beautiful Tree Trimmings & Christmas Greetings stamp sets from the IBC. Supplies include Real Red, Glorious Green, and Whisper White cardstock; Real Red and Basic Black ink; and the beautiful 3/4" Polka-Dot Grosgrain ribbon.

The other two are pictures of a make'n take we did at our last RubberQueen meeting. It is a gift card, with 2 pockets inside to hold a gift card and little note. I forgot to take a picture with the little note with a cute tab on it, but you get the idea of what it would look like (you actually can put anything you want in the other pocket. This was really neat because you didn't have to use ribbon or any other type of accessary to keep the card closed. It just tucks neatly behind the layered panel that is attached with two dimensionals on the bottom only (leaving the top open so you can tuck the flap under it). The inside pocket is made from one sealed envelope cut in half then adhered to the Real Red cardstock. Isn't that just nifty!! Making gift card holders is one of my favorite little projects as there are so many different patterns/ideas.

Hope you had a beautiful weekend -- it was beautiful here!!  Thanks for stopping by to visit.
