Hi everyone! I am glad to see Friday arrive! There's an icky sinus thing going around my area, so I've been laying low lately! I was able to create something quick for the latest As You See It challenge today, which is a lovely color palette:
What to make, what to make? I like to give away little gifts of cookies to people that touch our lives throughout the year. One year I substituted as a Sunday School teacher and one of the parents gave me two pieces of homemade fudge; just two pieces.....but it was the perfect little gift, not too much, not too over-the-top....and I still remember the delight at receiving that fudge, as it is not something I make myself! So even though these little cafe bags aren't real big, I think they're just big enough for a few cookies, and a way to say "thanks" to those special people! I started out with some Print Patterns DSP in Pacific Point and went from there:
My houses were stamped in the challenge colors, using the Hearts Come Home stamp set, then fussy cut and set upon some stitched hills (Lawn Fawn). I added some Pool Party trees, a little snowman from the retired Jingle All the Way set, and finished it off with a sentiment and, of course, Santa streaking across the sky!
I added a Pool Party bow at the top to tie it all together! I hope that you'll play with our color challenge this week...it's a delightful one, especially in non-traditional holiday hues! Be sure to check out the DT samples as well! Thanks for popping in and be blessed today!
I have always wanted to make a gingerbread house with Cassidy, but the kits seemed like cheating...however, with the limited time I have with her now, when she saw a Minion kit in the grocery store, I caved! I have to admit, it was fun, although I did transfer the icing to one of my piping bags to make it easier!
I'll share the finished house in my next post---stay tuned!
