Christmas Candy

I made up some bags of Almond Roca for my co-workers in my Department.  I got the recipe from my Twin Sis' Judy ~ it's out of the Betty Crocker Red Checked Recipe Book.  SoooOOO yummy!  I used Old Olive CS sponged with Chocolate Chip and the tag is from the Tags til Christmas Stamp Set.  I used Very Vanilla CS for the base of the tag and stamped with Old Olive Ink and the Chocolate Chip Marker I used to color the pine cone.  The topper is cut with the Top Note Die and sponged everything with Chocolate Chip Ink.

One bag of candy I put into a little purse I had made quite some time ago ~ it's on my blog somewhere if you want to "hunt it down"...LOL!!!  Sure hope they like their little treats!  Thanks for making me a copy of your recipe Judy ~ too good!!!

Tina's B-Day Card

Yesterday was my friend Tina's Birthday.  I made a card for her like the one I did for my Step-Daughter-in-law on 11/28 (see posting below).  The instructions I got from  I know she liked it, she sent me a text message to let me know! 

This one I used more pearls on and the Soft Suede strip across the middle I punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch.

Theresa's Birthday Card

Here's the card I made for Bob's new-found daughter.  It's the first Birthday card she's ever received from her Dad ~ after 53 years!  Hope she likes it?

I used the cupcake from the stamp set Got Treats.  I used Blushing Bride CS for the base card and ran a piece of Poppy Parade CS through the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  I used the Mat Pack to punch the corner pattern by the cupcake.  Basic Pearl Jewels and Blushing Bride Poly Ribbon for accents.  The Birthday Wishes is from the Water Color Trio Stamp Set.  The patterned paper is from In Colors Pattern Stack.  Oval Punch and Scallop Oval Punch around the sentiment and a couple more Basic Pearl Jewels. A little sponging and viola ~ Theresa's first Birthday Card from us!  Happy Birthday Daughter!
