Ok this is a BOOK BUDDY!!!!!
I loved how these look and they would make an awesome gift for any reading guru(like me...*G*) these are the instructions that IBIRUS(Lynn) gave to me and they are some of the best instructions I have ever seen....if you follow what she said you WILL NOT make any mistakes..*S*
" The "book buddy", as I call it (it needed a catchy name) is really easy. I saw it at a stamp camp. It's an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of cardstock cut the long way so you have two pieces 4 1/4 x 11. Fold it in half first then fold each corner back to the fold again to make and accordian. The first page was just a quote, the second page is a removable book mark, I used a folded piece of cardstock so I could do a glitter window. The third fold is a place to keep post-it's and the last fold is a loop for a pen. Under the bow are two eyelets that form holes for the ribbon. Then a ribbon wraps around the whole thing. "(this is what Lynn sent to me)
Now I didn't add ribbon around the whole thing since I am a ribbonaholic I thought I had better get away from the ribbon a bit before my kids decide to get me nothing but ribbon for christmas...*LOL*...so I added VELCRO where I needed it to stay closed...*S* I also added a little pencil rather than a pen because well I just saw it sitting there and thought to use it..
Have fun with this one and I would love to hear your thoughts on it..*S*

This is one of the cuttest sets again from Stampin Up! Its called FlakyFriends this set is so cute and tons of fun to play with.
I use craft and cranberry CS I cut out the mittens on a string and the bigger mit with the saying for the saying i used a punch. (everything or just about everything I use is from Stampin Up) I used pencil crayons to color in the snowmen and then used a blender pen to make it look more unified. I added buttons at the top to make it look like the mittens are hangin from them. I had fun making this card its alot of cutting and coloring but very relaxing.
Who says snowflakes all have to be white or blue...*G*...I really enjoy making Christmas Cards with a NONtraditional feel to them...I am passionate about Christmas anyway so i am sure that helps.
This is just Whisper White CS from Stampin Up and Real Red ink and Scarlet Fibers all from Stampin Up. Turned out pretty good..*S*
I love love love Hedgies...My kids and I look after a cute little guy on weekends and holidays from the local Jr.High School and he is the sweetest little guy. Herbie is so curious and funny and when I found out that Stampin Up used to have Hedgehog sets I had to find them and wow have I been playing with them.
I put Crystle effects on the candy cane and the bow of the little girl I also added stickles to all the greenery this has all been put on watercolor paper from Stampin Up which I also love.
I saw this pretty little girl at Micheals and fell in love with her but I just couldn't convince myself to pay what they where asking so oneday I was peeking into ebay and saw her there and just had to have her and I am soooo glad I did.
I love Faires and the ledgends that go with them. This Fairies name is the "Lavander Faire. I added stickles and crystle effects to her and around her but it does not seem to show up here it really looks pretty IRL.
