Friend, Ornament, New Tool and a Thank You!

I have been busy, really I have!

Since I posted last I have been to Minnesota,Vail Colorado, Minnesota, back to Bennett Colorado and again going to Vail Colorado. Boy am I tired.

But I have been doing some crafting!

These are a couple of ornaments made of Cosmo Cricket papers.

This first one is a stocking cut from my Cricket. I cut two of each of the pieces so that I could sew them together. These would be great for children to do if you cut them larger and punch holes around the outside, the child could then stitch it together with yarn or shoelaces. I lightly stuffed these with tissue paper. After being stitched together I added mica glitter flakes.
I cut two trees and stitched them together and added a Maya Road star to the top of the tree. I also added silver studs and punched circles.
Everyone is talking about making Christmas cards, but don't forget about those
Thank you cards!

How about one like this?
                 I love the way this turn out!
Just using some of Cosmo Cricket Jolly Days paper and a tag from the Element deck you could have one of these ready in minutes.
I am dedicating this card to a long lost friend I found not to long ago. She was the first scrapbook teacher I ever had. It was at CKU! I had never gone to a crop, class or anything related to scrapbooking and I went to CKU......what was I thinking?

Any way I THANK YOU Kim and I enjoyed seeing you and bringing you a Vented Pumpkin Latte thingy!

And if it were not for her......I would have never ever got one of these Epiphany Craft Shape Studio that made the cute embellishment on my thank you card. I am in love with this tool! I bought another already and I see more in my future! If you have never tried one you should, they are AWESOME!
