Here's what I made for Christmas presents this year.  I got a 2012 calendar made with all our birthdays and anniversaries on it along with a cork trivet I made using wine corks !  I had made some of the square ones one year; and now I'm getting requests for a larger one that would fit a 9x13 so...I made some!  The 9x13 does take alot more corks !

Just finished the last 30 thank you cards for all the retirement gifts I received.
I really like this border punch from Martha Stewart and the 3 layer punch from Stampin Up, they go really good together
The stamp Merci is from Scrappy Moms clear stamps
This is a good way to use up some of the paper scraps I have!

Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge - DPDC18

These little birdies from Doodle Pantry are just so cute!
Check out their challenge:
I'm trying to use what I'm learning in photoshop elements class

Sent my daughter some goodies and made this quick card.  This is the first time I used this cute border punch from Martha Stewart and after I did this one, I discovered I wasn't pushing the punch all the way down, thats why I have the end pieces on this one .. oops!
and I also used the Stampin Up 3 layer punch and put a little bling in the flower
