It's Hot Apple Cider Time!!! Winner!!

 
Happy Monday everyone!!! I am sorry I have been missing in action but I just cannot get into the swing of things!!! I have been so distraught by the heinous events in Newtown, CT, that I can't get motivated to do anything. As a retired teacher (although at the college level), the slaughter of those innocent children along with those who had the educational best interests of those children at heart, has me so devastated. I have been so very haunted by the loss of everything precious in a civilized society!!! I can make no sense at all out of such a senseless act!
 
Today I am showing a little project that I made for the October 2012 Issue of the Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Magazine which you can find right HERE. Of course I used a darling image from the Merry Christmas Whimsy Prints Collection called Two Turtle Doves. Isn't she darling!!! I used the directions for the Mini Accordion File, changing the method of closing it a little bit. The double matting is Bazzill and the DP is from Simple Stories Handmade Holiday Collection. I only added some Stardust Stickles, organza ribbon, holly leaves and red pearls and I was done. Here is a view of what the inside looks like...
You can see that I used red business envelopes for the inside and within each pocket I placed a pack of hot apple cider mix. This neat little file could be used for images, hot chocolate mix, embellies, or even a few stamps.
 
 
WINNER
Thank you all so very much for the sweet and kind comments about my little cupcake boxes but we must let Mr Random.org make his selection of the winner of the Martha Stewart PATP Eyelet Lace set....And the winner is.....
 
Congratulations, Brigitte!! Please leave a comment on this posting and email me with your mailing info before Thursday, December 20 at 8 AM EST so that I can get your package out to you right away!!
 
Thank you all so very much for coming by today and I hope you will want to drop by often! Beginning tomorrow I am participating again in the New Release at Whimsy Stamps and I hope to see you around Noon time tomorrow. Have a wonderful day and please keep those who are hurting in your thoughts...May we all be reminded of the importance of compassion and love for one another!! Big hugs!!

Cupcake Surprise! SWEET STUFF!!

 
A very happy day to everyone!! I hope your week is going along without a hitch and you are able to accomplish everything on your list of Things To Do!! Gosh, when I have ventured out into the world, it seems that everyone is in a RUSH and I just can't be rushed!!! So I guess I will be hiding out until after the holidays...hahahah
 
I was sitting around looking for something to play with and I remembered some little papier mache cupcake boxes that I have had forever and decided to have a play with some of them. If I remember correctly they are from Michaels or Joanns and cost so very little...less than $1 each, I think. They measure about 3 1/2" (8.5 cm) tall so that will give you an idea of how small they are.  But I needed several small presentation boxes for gift cards and small gifts that I thought this would be something QUICK and EASY and I was right! Here's what these little boxes look like at the beginning...
 
The first thing I did was to cover them with a couple of coats of acrylic paint--I wanted the bottoms to look like chocolate and I wanted to make the toppings in pink. I have only finished the first one but I really do have a couple of ideas for the next two....wink!
 
Then I just started gluing Pink Cottage Roses all over the top of the cupcake and where there were gaps I added some pink acrylic flowers with some sparkly rhinestone centers, I finished the top with a couple of fluffy bows made from Vintage Seam Binding, a couple of tiny Maya Road heart pins, and a Prima teacup pin. Around the upper edge of the chocolate bottom I added some pre-gathered lace with some Pearl Drop Trim. See how quick and easy this was!!!! I will put the little surprises in a wee organza bag for the inside and all finished!! I think these would make the sweetest favors for a ladies' get-together or placed on a tiered cupcake server. What do you think??
 
 
SWEET STUFF!!
 
Martha Stewart Crafts Eyelet Lace Punch
 
Seeing that pre-gathered lace on the cupcake I was reminded that I have an EXTRA Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page Set of Eyelet Lace that I would love to send to one of my FOLLOWERS!!!  If I will be shipping outside the US, I will remove all of the packaging so that the shipping will not be so very much. All you have to do is leave a comment here before Friday morning, December 14 at 8 AM EST  to be in for the draw. Good Luck!
 
Thank you so much for dropping by and I hope to see you again very soon!! Until then, slow down and enjoy each of your moments!! Big hugs!!

Christmas Friendship!!!

 
A very happy Monday to everyone!!! I hope you all had a magnificent weekend and have been able to have some fun along the way! I have been out only briefly and I have determined that shoppers are crazy!!! hahaha So if you have to be out and about shopping, please be safe and roll with the punches!!
 
Today begins a new challenge at Wild Orchid Challenge and for this fortnight the theme is Friendship Christmas...what could be more fun and appropriate for this time of year???  As always, there is a wonderful surprise for some lucky participant from the Wild Orchid Crafts Shop and we hope you will come over and join with us so we can see your wonderful creations! Please pay attention to the rules on the sidebar...they are very simple actually...No more than two other challenges and use at least one Wild Orchid Crafts product. Please be sure to link your card/project and not your blog and please do not backlink something that you have done before! Can't wait to see you there!!!
 
For my card I used another Whimsy Print from the Christmas Joy Prints Collection and added some Prisma Glitter to the glow around the lamp and Stickles for the holly berries. The sentiment is from the Tis the Season Notables 5 set designed by the  marvelously talented Ann Vento and cut out with a Notables 5 Die. Everything else on the card is from Wild Orchid Crafts: Folded Paper Doily, Mulberry Leaves, Cottage Rose, Open Roses, Hip Rosebuds, Satin Ribbon, and Self Adhesive Rhinestones. The base and all double matting is Bazzill and the DP is from the EP Very Merry Christmas Pad ( I think).
 
 
WINNER
 
Thank you all so very much for all of the sweet and kind comments...and yes, I think I have a MS Punch fetish...hahahah...but as I said, I am NOT buying any more of those things!!! So with that said, Mr Random.org has made his selection of the winner of the MS Holly Leaves PATP Set and the winner is......
 
 
Congratulations, Mary Lou!! Please leave a comment on this posting so that everyone will know that you have claimed your prize and send me your mailing info before Wednesday, December 12 at noon EST so that I can get this thing out of my house...hahahaha
 
 
Thank you all for dropping by today and I hope to see you again real soon. I know this is a very busy time for most everybody this time of year...so enjoy your moments and be safe!! Until we meet again, I send big hugs!!

Tis the Season!!! SWEET STUFF!!

 
A very happy Thursday to everyone! I hope your week is going along very well and that you are enjoying each and every moment of it! I'm sure that many of you are treading water over all of the demands of the holiday season...but just slow down and smell the poinsettias...hahahah...I have one in my living room but not sure it has a scent at all!!!
 
This is a card I made for the October 2012 Issue of the Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Magazine which you can find right HERE. Of course I used a darling image from the Merry Christmas Whimsy Prints Collection. The base and all double matting is Bazzill and the DP is from the BoBunny Rejoice Collection. To add another layer, the image was placed on a square paper doily. The Satin Ribbon, tied over the top corners into  double flat bows, are topped with holly buttons from my stash. The bottom floral treatment consists of 15mm Open Roses, a 25mm Open Rose, Carnations, and several large holly berries. The front was finished with more holly buttons on the bottom corners.
 
 
SWEET STUFF!!
 
 
Speaking of holly, in my organizing (cough cough) I found an extra Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page Holly Leaves set that I would love to send to one of my FOLLOWERS. If it has to be mailed outside the US, I will remove it from the packaging to save on shipping. Please just leave your information with the little Blue Froggy before Sunday, December 9 at 8 AM EST to be in for the draw! Good Luck!!
 
 
and
 
For those of you who have asked how I store my MS punches...here ya go!!!
 
 
Now you know why I have had no idea what I have and why I have duplicates...hahahahah...I have said that in the New Year, that I am NOT going to buy another MS punch...I don't care what the latest and greatest is!!!!!!
 
Thank you so very much for dropping by today and I hope to see you again very soon!!! Until the next time, I send big hugs to each of you!!!

WHIMSY STAMPS Information and WINNER!!

Happy Saturday, Everyone!! I hope you are having a marvelous weekend wherever you may be!! May your tomorrow be just as marvelous!!!

I wanted to take a moment to share with you a note from Denise at Whimsy Stamps since we are in the middle of a PRINTS Blog Hop and we all know how those computer gremlins can sometimes change the best laid plans........

To Our Valued Customers and Friends:

Over the past week some of you may have noticed intermittent problems with our website resulting in loss of carts, log in problems, and security errors. We apologize for any frustration this may have caused.

During our attempts to diagnose and correct the issues, we have discovered some problems with our current hosting provider and their servers. In an effort to serve our customers better, we have made the decision to switch providers and move our shop to new servers.

This change/move will require our site to be shut down for a number of hours this weekend. We do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. This change will also result in a delay of our regularly scheduled monthly digital release. But as soon as we are back up and running as normal we will release all the fabulous new images...including those from our brand new digital artist Marika Collins!

Our goal is to provide our customers with the best quality of service possible. We thank you for your patience at this time. We will make every effort to have this transition go as smoothly and as quickly as possible. Thank you for your continued support of Whimsy Stamps and our artists!

Have a great weekend!



WINNER
 
First I would like to thank all of you who participated in the Whimsy Stamps activities over the past week and hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. And the news is that little BERRY may have a new home. Mr Random.org has selected the winner.........
 
 
 
Congratulations, Regina!! Please leave a comment on this posting so that others know you have claimed your prize and send me your mailing information before Monday, December 3, at 8 AM EST so that I can get your prize out to you right away!
