Jackpot...

Hello!

Hope that your weekend has been a good one!  Ours has been wet and rainy.

I want to thank all of you for the well wishes for the momma to-be last week.  She went into the hospital on Monday, was induced on Tuesday, and finally on Wednesday evening, gave birth to a little stillborn daughter.   Your thoughts, prayers, and well wishes were appreciated.

I have a fun project for you today.  This is the new Treat Dish Template from Doodle Pantry.  When it is all folded up, it's an A-2 card.  (comes in square size too!)  When it's open, it's a sweet little tray for candy, or whatever.....  I decided to use the Antique Slot image, and fill my tray with quarters!  How much fun for someone heading out to Vegas! 

 Hope it brings you a smile or two.  


























Have a great week!

Thanks for stopping by, can't wait to see what you make with your Treat Dish!

Hugs and blessings,
Patti J.

Food for thought:  Those who do things that count, never stop to count.

Supplies Used:  Authentique DP "Glowing", Doodle Pantry Image, 'Antique Slot', Bazzill Basics, Copic Markers, Scor-Tape, Doodle Pantry Treat Dish Template.
