Still Lots of Great Items on the Clearance Rack!

Stampin' Up!'s Cookie Stamps

These stamps are so much fun (and such a good excuse to make - and eat - cookies. I have to practice don't I???)

I used the shortbread recipe that comes with the cookie stamps and they were so yummy! Fortunately I had enough left to package up in the mini lunch bags (retired) and give to friends. Take a look:

First I used a standard wheel to run the Soft Holly stamp twice along the bottom. Then I punched two holes in the top of the bag and tied a Riding Hood Red Ribbon. I actually added a tag to each bag but I missed photographing that part, sorry because it really added some zing!

Hope you're enjoying your Christmas Cookies!!

Happy Stamping

Never was good at Physics!

I have to admit sciences were not my strong point in school. But life has taught me more about Physics than school ever could. Take Newton's First Law of Motion:
 "An object in motion tends to remain in motion, and an object at rest tends to remain at rest."
Ergo - I have stopped posting on my blog and it's tending to stay that way!!

But I will overcome the inertia (there's another Newton Law in there that I forget...) with force and hopefully the blog posting will tend to remain in motion!

OK, enough science! I actually have something to share with you today. Linda and I worked on them a while ago and this is a photo of mine completed:

I'm so pleased with the way it turned out! All of the red and white flowers are made with cardstock and dies used with the Big Shot! There was a sample in our demo magazine "Stampin' Success" and we just had to try it!

The little green flowers were handmade too - I think they're so cute!

The photo was taken before I had added the centres but I still think they are cute!

I hope you enjoyed this post, and with any luck Newton's First Law of Motion will keep me going!!
