So not original
I LOVE this! It is so pretty in person, bright and Christmassy. I CASEd it of course, I am in a hurry and do not have time to think up original things right now so I just used what I had in place of what the original was. I am kind of at a loss here to who the person who made the original is, I am sorry! I used to save everything to my hard drive and name it the person's name so I could give credit but now I am putting them in a Word document and printing and not saving so I will have to rethink this. I never want to take credit for someone else's original idea!
These are 4 x 4 blank coasters with last year's Basic Grey Christmas collection, Blitzen I think. Then I used Old Olive (yes!) River Rock and Real Red. I printed the letters from my computer as I didn't have time to get out my foam stamps and the stamp for the O is from an SU set (retired). I used my daisy punch and punched two flowers in red and put them together so it looks like a poinsettia. The other two little diagonal squares are SU stamps too and I used brads and Stickles on them. Fun! All this while cooking homemade meatballs (2 pounds mini, took forever ugh!) and Chocolate Chip Cranberry Orange Oatmeal Bars (Kraft recipe if you want it I will give you the link) which turned out awesome by the way. So it was an interesting day cooking and trying not to get food on my craft project LOL! The food is for the Stamp-a-Stack my SU demo friend is having today. It is so much fun and kind of crazy with 12 women trying to make 800 cards or something like that! I can't wait :) All I can say is this year will be better now that she added on a huge room to her house for this (well, things like this and her craft stuff)! Woo Hoo!
