A Litte Something

Here's what's on my work desk today....however, I'm working on some Christmas gifts for family, so, I can't show you my actual desk....this little gift is for a neighbor.  She's always doing little things for our neighborhood, and this little something is to let her know she is thought of.  The gift wrap is tissue, but what I like best about the wrapping is the Memory Box dies that I used to decorate the gift. 

Karen at Paradise Scrapbook Boutique has a large supply of the Memory Box dies (well large yesterday....they are going fast!) and I'll tell you, my shopping bag had quite a few.  The rosette has become my favorite, and trust me, I have a few.  It's easy to use, no, that's not exactly's SUPER easy to use.  I have another that manages to cut through about half the card stock and all the light weight papers.  This one doesn't.  The above was cut on a light weight paper...and it didn't break when I folded it.  The silver cuts are two of the Madera Corner that I slid under the rosette.  What an easy way to add some pizazz to a package. 

Yesterday was my November class and I met several new gals....I've got to say it was one of my favorite classes.  Everyone worked hard to finish and everyone did a fantastic job.  I took my December class cards with me, and when I say the class is filling up quickly....boy is it.  There are 3 spots left, so if you want to take the Karen.

Today my honey has a painting class, I'll be working on cutting my packets for the December class and also on a project for Karen's December Workshop.  I guess if I'm going to get something done...I should get at it. 

Have a most wonderful week, and if you have a minute, check out what the others are doing this week....

  4. That looks lie a lovely present for your kind neighbour.

  5. My workdesk was buried under such a high pile of "stuff" that I finally cleared it yesterday--all morning! Once things were put away, I was inspired by all the open space and used the rest of the time I had to make kits for my upcoming Christmas workshop and Mothers Classes. (I'll be posting the card pictures later today.)

  6. You have a great heart yourself Mary to think of doing this for your neighbour
