A “Cod” to End the Week

We’ve finally had our first “big” snow of the year here in Wisconsin, about 5” at our house. Our school district doesn’t do late starts, and it was school as usual today for the boys. My GI Joe has the day off, so we’ve got the day to go sledding with Princess Thundercloud. She has pretty mad sledding skills for a three-year-old, and doesn’t whine when she has to pull her sled up the hill.

But I digress…I made this cute card for my niece’s 17th birthday…I’m sure she thought it was juvenile, but I liked it! Everyone needs a penguin eraser, after all.



Supplies: Polar Pals stamp set (retired); Woodgrain, and Distressed Dots background stamps
Marina Mist, Whisper White, Melon Mambo, and Not Quite Navy cardstock
Good Neighbor DSP (retired); 1 3/4” Circle, 2 3/8” Scallop, 1 3/4” Scallop, 1”, 1 1/4” punches
Treat Cups, Dazzling Details; Not Quite Navy, Melon Mambo, Basic Black markers

Using these treat cups from Stampin’ Up! always makes me smile...I like to include a little treat with my cards. The larger scallop circle inside covers the opening of the treat cup, so the recipient can just peel that off and access their treat. You can mail these in padded envelopes, or just put them in a package with the gift. They're great on tags, and make nifty snowglobes.

The cups also come in a heart shape. which fits the Full Heart punch perfectly. Stampin’ Up! offers several stamp sets designed to coordinate with the round and heart treat cups, which makes it easy to design cute and clever cards.

Enjoy your weekend, and I hope you find some time to be creative!

    Hey, I found a link to Frugal Crafter that shows how to make your own bakers twine. Thought you might like it--it's clever, just like you!

    Let me know if you try it.
