American Youth Cheer National Competition!

My daughter's Cheer Team not only took 1st place in their league, they took 1st place at the Midwest Regional Cheer Competition so now, we are off to Orlando this afternoon to compete in the NATIONAL competition!! Her team is so excited to have this opportunity, no matter what the outcome! My girl is NERVOUS, too! They've had two weeks to prepare for this competition and they look good!

I'll be back on Sunday, but if you're on facebook with me, I will be posting updates as they happen!
I'm hosting my Monogram Stamp-a-Stack (5 each of 3 designs with matching envelopes) on Thursday, December 16th! Be sure to join me to make these beautiful cards & a holder for each set. They make great gifts! You must RSVP & pay class fee by this Sunday evening in order for me to prepare enough supplies!
Meanwhile, if you would please, pray for the travels and safety of all the girls! Watch for us, we'll all be wearing green!

Waffle Chic Handbag

I was wondering what to do with this beautiful waffle paper (found in the Holiday Mini Catalog) and I decided to make up with this handbag! Isn't it beautiful? I also made a 2nd purse with the now retired Sweet Pea DSP. I used a pattern purchased from the amazingly creative Becky Roberts' 12 days of Christmas tutorial here on her blog! Each of the projects in her 12 days of Christmas tutorial are fantastic! I love all her work and I hope she likes my rendition of her purse pattern!

I made both of these to include four very special cards, each cased by other talented demonstrators!

By popular demand, I will repeat this class soon! Check my website for a dates in January to be posted soon!

As always, let me know if you have any questions or how I can help you.

Thank you for checking out my blog,
