Magazine Challenge Card Sketch

I needed a break from all the red and white projects I have underway. I need many birthday cards this time of year so I took advantage of using Art Philosphy. It had all the elements I needed. The circle, the heart and a design aka the cupcake. It needed a little pop so I inked the edge of the cupcake and embossed several of the layers. The patterned paper and the 2 colors of twine tied it all together. The cupcake is pop dotted so it is higher than the rest of the design.

Christmas Candy Cake - Wine not included!! Just to show size

This tiered "cake" is a perfect centerpiece in any office. Filled with miniature candy bars, candy canes and lollipops. I am donating this one for a raffle for our football team.

Mini Album

I am sure you are all tired of hearing that our little Pop Warner Mitey Mite Team is going to play in a Superbowl game in Florida at Walt Disney World in a few weeks. Yikes!!! We are fundraising like crazy and as I try to prepare for Thanksgiving...I have red and white coming out of my brain at all times. So, I made a little album to go on a bigger album. Our helmets are white with a big red R on them. I have spots ready the airport, the game, WDW, the Awards Dinner, fun and games with the coach...aka my hubby. The large football is 2 sides and I will stick the keepsakes I pick up along the way. We are getting so excited.

The helmets are cut at 4" using Sports Mania, The football is cut at fit to page about 11 1/2" also from Sports Mania. The R is from Varsity Letter.

Flu Season Survival Kit

I have been delivering so many of these so early in the season it is awful. This little hefty bag holds tissue, cough drops, tea bags, chicken soup, hand sanitizer and fuzzy socks. This one is going to my boss tomorrow. I am recovering but it has been 12 days already. I hope none of you need one anytime soon. Leaves are from Speaking of Fall. I used pretty thick chip board and painted the fall colors with acrylic paint for some texture. The letters are from Varsity Letter and the foundation is from Art Philosophy.
