I’ll be spending time with family over the next few days, and then while my girls are here we’ll be decorating for Christmas.  For us, Thanksgiving starts the holidays and they don’t end until after New Years.   Here’s wishing all of you aSmiley from millan.net and if you are traveling over the long weekend – safe journeys!

Good morning!  I can’t believe I’m doing this another week in a row, but I’m totally unprepared for another Treasure Hunt Tuesday at Rubbernecker.  I got to involved with Dancing with the Stars last night, that I never left the couch to head down to the studio.  So once again . . .

today is Smiley from millan.net Treasure Hunt Tuesday at Rubbernecker and I don’t have a card ready.  Here’s my plan!  I’m going to do today’s Color Challenge on Splitcoaststampers and then add the card to this post.  It works for me!  In the meantime, you can find all the necessary info on the Rubbernecker Stamps Blog!

. . . did any of that sound familiar?

I’m sure you’re wondering why the heading Tap Dance Tuesday.  Well because it sounds better than I don’t know whether to scratch my watch or wind my butt!

Smiley from millan.net Happy Monday!  I’ve got to tell ya, it’s already been a very busy morning around my house.  Even though it’s quiet, it has been busy!  I can hardly believe that I’ve already had a shower, dressed for the day and have been in the studio already.  Yes, I might have a fever!!!!

After I caught up on emails and my blurfing this morning, I checked out the Technique Lovers Challenge on Splitcoaststampers.  It’s such a great challenge today!  If you find yourself giving gift cards during the holidays, this is one you need to check out.  The challenge is to make a pop-up gift card holder!  Oh my BADness, they go together so quickly and would also be great if you are giving a bit of cash instead of a gift card.  I myself am a little leery about gift cards this holiday season . . . you never know if the company is going to be in business long enough for the gift card to be redeemed.

I decided to show you both the front,

TLC196 front

and the inside.  I made the same design for the inside that I used for the image on the front, so that I could write a personal note.

TLC196 inside

The holly was colored with Copic Markers and then cut out, so that I could mount them on the sentiment panel.  Spellbinders Circle Nestabilities were used to make both the image panel and the one on the inside.

I hope y’all have enjoyed your weekend so far.  I’ve had my fanny parked on the couch for the better part of two days watching holiday movies!  Both the Family and Hallmark Channel have had some good ones.  I have made it into the studio oh two, three, four times, and most of what I’ve made, will have to wait.  However, I did start a few little note cards last night and finished them up earlier today.

OCL Going Gourmet Thank You

The images were colored with Copic Markers.  I used Spellbinders Labels One for the image panel and for the scalloped border.

More than anything, I was playing around with little cards that could be used  in a set, each having the same layout with different images.  I also wanted to try my hand at a clean, simple design.  That is hard for me, and often takes more time than if I were in a distressing and sponging mode!
