Three Things to Share Tonight

Wow, I have been busy today! I spent a good part of the afternoon on a field trip to the bowling alley with 25 kids, mostly 4-5 year olds. Oh my, my son had the best time! He loves bowling even though what they do is not remotely what I think of as bowling, but never mind that, right? They had pizza too, it was loud and crazy and I am thankful I survived :) How do people stand this day in and day out? I needed major stress relief when I got home and made some things.

The first one is the sketch and color challenges from this week on SCS. Celery, pumpkin and rose. Hmmmm try to get those to look good together! The key is to use only a tiny amount of one, either rose or pumpkin. I chose rose as the "minor" color. I love the little hedgies, this is from a SU set but now I believe Stampendous (Penny Black) is selling them.

The next is called a quickie. These are little cards that are 3 x 3 well mine is 3 x 4 and you make them quick and simple. I just had to send a check to my SU demo, (sigh, I am permanently in debt to her LOL!) and wanted to send a note.

The third one is a copy (well sort of) of page 8 in the Spring/Summer SU preview. I needed something to hold a check for my cleaning gal who has been with me for years now (and is great) and I wanted something to put her Christmas bonus in. If you pull the ribbon the card slides out and the check is sitting in a lip I folded over of the cardstock. I thought this was a great gift check holder! I see so many gift card holders but not check one's.

So that's it, I do have a couple of Tim Holtz idea tags to post but maybe tomorrow.

Would love one for a pet but my hubby's "no more living things" rule is kinda getting in the way!

Cheryl said...

I love that hedgehog, too!! You did great on them all.

Glad you survived the field trip, too.:-)

Take care, Lori.

Thank you! I need to use that set more, there are several cute hedgies in it! Hedgehogs are cute pets, but they kind of smell (more so than a hamster LOL)my neighbor's daughter has one. Thanks Cheryl on surviving the field trip, God did not give that as one of my gifts LOL!
