I always like a good challenge and glad I finally managed to squeeze some time in to make something for the challenge at My Creative Time. Here is what I came up with for the challenge.
I always need a good thank you card ready to send out. I love the sentiment dies and thought it would be fun to use the thanks die from the Happy Thoughts stamp and die set. I cut the thanks from paint chips that I had from the True Value Store. I cut the S off of the last one to say thank and cut the you from the Picture Perfect stamp and die set. I glued the sentiment die cuts onto a scrap of black paper I had. I prepared a scrap of paper with some metal sticky tape from the hardware store...this comes on a large roll and is very sticky. I cut two Fun Stitched Edges from it to go on each side of the black paper. Thank you for dropping by and taking a look.

I have been busy planning for a Bridal Shower I hosted. I made a bunch of envelopes for the shower invitations and as a gift for the Bride with Thank You cards, postage stamps and address labels. I found it was faster to make the envelopes by cutting the papers 3 at a time using my Rotary Cutter, Rotary Mat and Ruler. These items are usually used for cutting fabric but I often use them to accurately cut my papers instead of my paper trimmer. I was able to use 3 squares at a time in the Envelope Board.
The shower was for giving towards the Honeymoon Trip which will be in Jamaica so the table favors just had to have a tropical and beach theme. Here is a picture of what I came up with.
I made over 30 of them and I am happy with how they turned out. I used an SVG from Miss Kate Cuttables for the palm tree leaves. I used a hole punch for the coconuts.

I found some bags with ties at a Party City store and filled them with Bliss, Hugs and Kisses. I looked for some fancy suckers but didn't have much luck. Then the thought hit me that pretzel sticks looked a lot like a tree trunk...more than a sucker stick...so pretzel rods is what I used. The party was last Saturday and I believe we all had a good time. I hope to have more time now to get caught up on yard work and cards. Thanks for taking a look.
