What I did when I should have been cleaning...

Oh dear...it's the Saturday before Thanksgiving, and guess what I did today?

I played in my girl cave.
And I liked it!


lol...



This first project is actually one that I made when my friend Shirley came over to create with me a couple of weeks ago. We each provided a project, and this was hers. You can find the template in the resource tab at Splitcoast Stampers. This is just so much fun! These fancy file folders are from Office Max. One file folder, one Jr. legal pad, one RSVP pen, and Voila! I topped my left pocket off with chocolate...




I am entering this notebook at A Crafty Little Place, where the challenge is 'Alter It'.


Since I plan to use this as a Christmas to-do, holiday list book, I am also entering it at: Our Creative Corner. The challenge there is: 'Holiday 3-D Project'.





This next card was made for these challenges:

Incy Wincy Designs: Anything Musical

Basic Grey Challenges: #33 Wings (angel, Basic Grey Jovial DP)

ABC Challenge: H is for Holidays



Noel makes a darling gift card holder!

I'm entering this at:

All That Scraps: Gift Card Holder (must use a stamp that ATS carries in their store)



Next is some more of the new Basic Grey collection - isn't it gorgeous? I am entering this card here:

Just Us Girls Challenge: Color challenge - Yellow, Dark Red, Black, and White

One Stop Craft Challenges: #107 Snowpeople

Freshly Brewed Designs: Show your style



Hope that YOU are having a good Saturday too! I'm thinking that I should go fix some supper! Thanks for stopping by to look! I'll get by your blogs this evening!
Take care - Hugs and Blessings!

I laughed right along with you. Who wants to clean? Hell, I don't even clean my card studio that often! Ha! You sure made wonderful use of your time. Your cards/projects are wonderful! I love the gift card holder, especially its shape and the inside paper! Your top project is awesome and I love the addition of chocolate (even though I can't have any! :() And the other two cards are really pretty. Great post! Best, Curt
