Kiss treats!  Very easy to make:  cut cardstock to 4 x 5, then score along the long side every 1 1/4".  Glue the kisses to one end, then "roll up" into a triangle!!  Adhere, then add your embellishments!!

Two more Cards with Rubons.............

So, are you convinced yet?  Yes, you NEED these Rubons!!! :-) 

Here are two more cards for your viewing pleasure!!!


This one uses both the sentiment and the three snowflakes from the Season of Cheer rubons.  I also used an Antique Brass Build-a-Brad for the center of the Felt Flurries.  Aren't these fun?!!!


Look--I actually stamped on this card!!!  I used the house from "To Your & Yours".  I stamped it in Basic Brown, then colored in the door with a Real Red marker.  For the trees, I used a sponge dauber to apply a little Old Olive ink.  I added glitter to all the snow--but it's hard to see in the picture.  The ribbon is from the Alpine Originals, found in the Holiday Mini Catalog.

Have a great day!!!

Got a Latte Meeting Challenge

Good morning!!!  Yesterday was my upline's group meeting--in OHIO!!!  So, no, I wasn't able to go, but I did get to participate in the meeting challenge!!  Sherrie makes up little baggies with specific items in them.  Our challenge is to use all the items in the baggie, and come up with an awesome project!!  Everyone votes for their favorite, and Sherrie is giving the winnter a roll of Tangerine Tango ribbon and a package of the Star assortment designer brads!!  WOW!!!  She's so good to all of us--but especially me!  Even though I'm hundreds of miles away, she still keeps me in the loop!! 

For this challenge, the contents of the baggie were:  Scallop Circle out of the Frosty Designer Paper, 5/8" striped grosgrain ribbon (tangerine tango), one large brad from the Star Assortment and the Styled Silver Frame and brads.  Here's what I came up with:

I added the snowflake cut with the Big Shot and the snowflake rubon!! 

I think it's okay--I'm really excited to see what the others came up with!!

Have a great day!!!

More Rubon Fun!!!

WOW!  I was on a roll Thursday night!!!  I pulled out my Ski Slope Designer Paper, and my Season of Cheer Rubons and went to town!!!  Here are some of the cards I created:


A simple one--just some layering, and the felt flurries!!  Look how straight my sentiment is!!  Another reason I love the rubons--they're easy peasy to apply--and I can get them straight!! haha!!


Same designer paper and rubons, but this time I used the Snowflake #2 Die and my Big Shot!!  I wanted it off-center a bit, so I just trimmed off the parts that were "hanging off" the edge of the card!!  Again--my sentiment is straight!!! :-)
