My son made some deeeelicious cream puff today and I thought it would make a nice little gift if placed in an etched glass dish and wrapped with cello paper....refrigerated too of course. I added a tag using one of my favorite Xmas stamps by Dandelion Designs.
Supplies for tag:
Stamp by Dandelion Design
Brilliance Ink - Graphite Black
A few months ago, I went to my first "crop" and left with some really neat goodies. Part of them were well coordinated paper by Stampin' Up.

Some years back, I used to go to a lot of garage sales and found this cute mini bucket at one of them. Maybe I should start going again to see what kind of "treasures" I can find. I love bargains.

A few weeks ago I bought my first Sizzix Bigz die at Island Scrapbooking. I totally love this French Fry die. Plus, it's soooo easy to assemble.....my speed...LOL. And Dandelion Designs have really neat stamps too. Cute monkey yah? These are "surprise" favors I made for our office luncheon. It's filled with pretzels and I got this idea from my friend Jenny. THANKS JENNY!!!
The pretzels really look like french fries.

I just love my new Tina Wenke stamps. They're so cute and fun. A few weeks ago, I took a quick weekend trip to Oahu for a luncheon with my mom and brother at a Chinese restaurant in Mililani. I was REALLY HOPING to squeeze in a trip to "any" scrapbook store that would fit into our tight schedule. Boy, I got really lucky because I found out that Munchkins had just opened the prior weekend AND it was located next door to the Chinese restaurant. I chowed down my lunch, made a dash next door, and found some neat stamps. All of the cards on my blog by Tina Wenke and Stampavie are from Munchkins.
I also get A LOT of my supplies from Island Scrapbooking in Hilo too. What a fun place to shop. The frame for this card, Stickle, and Copic Markers are from Island Scrapbooking.

How does an "edible" tic tac toe sound? Yummy huh? You could add a twist to the rules too. Each player gets a bag of candy but they must be different kinds. The winner takes all of the opponents candy on the board. Continue playing till one person wins all of the opponents candy.
"Merry Christmas" stamp. Sorry, I tossed the pkg. so I don't know the brand name. If you
happen to know, could you put it on my post please? Thank you.
