Good Morning America!!

Been a while since I have been able to say that!!  It is a beautiful Fall morning here in Michigan, and yesterday was even better.  Fall is my most favorite time of the year -- love all the color!!  Today is a really short post because as usual I have tons of things I want to get done.  Hopefully (now that I have my house chores done) it will be mostly playing with my stamps!!

Ronda Wade put on another awesome meeting last night for the RubberQueens.  We all got to make another baggie book.  This time the theme was "Punches."  I have a few cards that I want to tweek a bit before I will be posting pictures, so I am just going to show you what I brought to the meeting.  I had so much fun yesterday making this gift box with stamped candles inside.  It is the very first time I have ever tried stamping candles -- and let me tell you, it was so easy and sooooooo much fun.  I want to do an entire class on just making these.  Let me know ladies if you are interested.  I CASEd this entire project from Carla Brasher, TheSouthernStamper.  However, I have to admit I made my box without following her directions because I thought her box (by the looks of the picture) was going to be to big.  Well, ended up I was pretty close to her same measurements -- so I could have saved myself a lot of time by just trying hers first (yah, another dah moment).  Anyway here are pictures of the gift and my swap card for the night.

Isn't this box just the cutest!!  I used Cherry Cobbler cardstock, Medium Weight Window Sheet, Deck the Halls Designer Series Paper and Designer Fabric, and Winter Post Stamp Set.

Oops, forgot to line up the candles -- but this gives you a closer shot.

My coordinating swap card for the night.

I have tons more pictures of the fabulous cards and WOW projects done by the other RubberQueens, so make sure you stop back to take a look.  I'm telling yah, you won't be disappointed.  The ladies really have awesome displays; let alone some of the very best swap cards I have seen!!

Until then, I'll leave you with this thought:  "Bless the Lord, ... who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies -- Psalm 103:1, 4"



  1. I love both of these. The candles turned out terrific and the card is so rich looking. If it looks this good on the internet, I can't imagine how great it will look in real life! Great Job, Sandi.

  2. What great candles in a cute box! Love it sandi! I'm hoping to be able to attend a rubber queen meeting soon, Tuesdays are so busy for me! Have a wonderful day!

  3. All I can say is WOW Sandi, you have truely outdone yourself this time! Cannot wait to do this project. I can see why you had so much fun making it because it is such a great gift idea and I have all the supplies to get started right away. And I love the card also great job again.

  4. Great projects, Sandi! I may just have to try the candles sometime. They would make great gifts. Thanks so much for sharing.

  5. The candle box is awesome, just love it. The card is just beautiful love the colouring. Do you have the sizing for your box? I would love to have them so I can try this.
