NoteCard Gift

Happy Sunday My Blogger Friends!
Before I begin my share today......I have a few pictures of my grandkids to share with you.
First up is the grandkids eating their "Noodles" lunch before the Gingerbread House Decorating Party yesterday.  (Left to Right......Jared, Steven, Brooke (Doll Baby) and Hailey)
Next up are a few pictures of what the Elf on the Shelf in Wisconsin has been up to.......
It might look like any other Christmas Tree....but a closer look......The Elf on the Shelf (acting as the tree topper) gave the White House tree a fun little twist with a roll of toilet paper.  Guess he knew he had better not try to TP the White House bathroom again this year.  Instead.....this year he TP'ed the White House Christmas Tree.  TOO FUNNY!
And here's what the Sewell's Elf on the Shelf did to their Christmas Tree......
Of course Hailey's little bunny got blamed for mummifying the Elf on the Shelf!
 (I just LOVE my daughters for including me in on all the fun the kids are having this holiday season with their Elf on a Shelf!)
Now......On with my share for today.  It's the sweet Thank-You gifts that I made for each of the committee members who helped me put on the annual SaddleBrooke Stampers Holiday Luncheon this past Wednesday.  Here is the gift I made for each of them.......

 I made a note holder full of 3x3 cards and a small envelope of candy!
Here's what the two gifts looked like. 
I created this small envelope of candy and then just prettied it up with DSP and some ribbon. 
 Each envelope holds two Hershey Nuggets that were wrapped with DSP.....
And the front of the envelope is decorate with a scallop circle and a bitty butterfly punch. 
 The gift box of cards was created to hold three little 3x3 notecards and envelopes.
All three notecard were the same..... 
I used the "Gorgeous Grunge" stamp set to create my background splatter on my Sahara Sand base card...... 
And added a small piece of a Doily to the center of my card....and stamping a "Thank-You" sentiment from the "Another Thank You Photopolymer" stamp set onto a piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock and creating a flag banner on each end. 
I also stamped the "Label Love" with Strawberry Slush ink....onto Strawberry Slush cardstock and then punched it out using the "Artisan Label" punch.  A small piece of Linen Thread was added to the back of the label punch and a Rich Razzleberry Bitty Butterfly was punched out and stapled onto the label. 
Here's all eight of my gifts ready to be given out to the WONERFUL ladies who helped me with the Holiday Luncheon Party for the SaddleBrooke Stampers.
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share with you some amazing pictures of a BEAUTIFUL KITTY.........Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!


  1. What a bunch of little cutie patootie Hamsters. What fun your Daughters must have had and I'm so glad they shared such wonderful, fun pic's with you! How adorable!!!
    O.K. Kadie. I have to make that small envelope with the nuggets in it. Do you think that it would fit a cookie in the pocket? This looks exactly like what I was looking for to put a cookie in. And, I absolutely adore your 3x3 cards and I am going to make some of those too! They are GORGEOUS! I love everything about them; color is spectacular and I love how you laid out all the embellishments. And, the card carrier is AWESOME! This is a total must have! Love it!
    I can't wait to see Beautiful Kitty tomorrow!!! Thanks so much for sharing!!!
