Hi all!!! It has been very hectic around the Hobson household the last five days as we seem to be sharing the flu amongst ourselves, uggghhh......!!!! My son is sick and so is Tony and I have not been feeling so hot either although I keep telling myself I am fine(denial is a great thing!) I will be happy when this bug moves on and we can get back to some semblance of normal!!! Today I wanted to share the gift I made for my hostess of last Saturday's workshop. I made this cute little treat bag and filled it with peanut butter and chocolate Hershey kisses - YUM!!! The bag was super easy to make since I used my new Big Shot die called Fancy Favor! Once I put it together, I used my 3/4 inch Circle punch and some of my clear window sheets to make the window in front!! The handle is made from scraps left over after I finished the bag and card so no waste at all!!! Here is a close-up of the bag -I just love the way it turned out! I also added some of the yummy polka dot soft suede ribbon - I am loving all the polka dot choices with my in-colors. I think she liked it too, although I am not sure if the bag was any big thing to her....she was very excited about the chocolates, LOL!!!! Well, off to work I go - I really wish I could stay home in bed, but I have so much to do, that is just not possible. So, I am going to make it a short day, come home and take a nap, and then carry on with my day after I pick up the kids. I hope to do some blurfing at some point today as well!! Thanks for stopping by to see me today - love ya for it!!!

Well, here it is - Monday again....boy, it sure does come around FAST!!! I am really missing when we worked four tens and had every Friday off....three days for the weekend was sooooo much nicer!!! So, today I wanted to share another one of the cards we did in the workshop on Saturday. This one was done using the Simple Friendship stamp set which I love!! I used a white card base which is not something I do very often, but really liked it for this particular card. I also LOVE LOVE LOVE Night and Day which is the designer paper I used for this is on page 11 of the Holiday Mini and is absolutely FABULOUS!!! The ladies really enjoyed making this card because they got to do quite a bit of stamping. This is one of three projects that we did and this one they said was their favorite (okay, it was mine too, LOL!) So, off to my day job I go but I will get some blurfing done today and I will be back tomorrow with something else to share! I hope everyone had a great weekend and has a fabulous day today - thanks soooo much for stopping by!!! MWAH!
