My First Christmas Stamp for 2008

While I was out with my friend shopping, we went to the local stamp store - Dragonflies and Dreams and I got this adorable ducky stamp!
I colored them in with prismacolor pencils and added a little glitter.
How cute are they?!?!?!

What to do with toilet paper roll tubes...

I started saving these a while ago trying to think of something clever to do with them.
I got some wallpaper from a wallpaper sample book and glued it around the outside of the tube (you could use patterned paper too). Then after that was dry I punched two holes opposite each other on one end.  I strung a wide ribbon up though the inside of the tube and out the punched holes.  I filled a cellophane bag with chocolates and put the bag inside the tube with the ribbon supporting the bag from the bottom so it wouldn't fall out.
I tied the top of the ribbon in a knot so it would hang from a doorknob and Voila!  Cute gift!
Can also be done up in a winter/Christmas design and hung as a special treat holder on the branch of a Christmas Tree.

Underwear Card

This is an underwear card I made for another swap.  It has flat back pearls and rhinestones on the front and back.
It's super cute and sparkly in person.
The bra is on front and the panties are on back...did you notice the ladybug "tattoo"?

Swap Cards etc

A few weeks ago my really good friend was over from out of state and we worked on some of the swaps that I have due this month. Here are the first two...

The Asian inspired card I made and then realized the swap was for an ATC!

The Butterfly is for Things With Wings

May Make 10

Well, again it has taken me some time to get back here - I would like to think that I could post more often, but I think that is just a pipe dream!
On Wednesday I took a Make 10 class at my local Stamp Store - it was loads of fun and I was able to make some really great cards!
These are 9 of the cards I made... 10 will have to be on the next post:
