Have A Question On How I Did Something? PLEASE READ!

I love to share what knowledge I have. I'm finding it more and more difficult to respond to your questions because some of you are not leaving a way for me to contact you. I am not ignoring those of you who have questions, but the majority of the time no contact information is given so I am unable to respond to your inquiries. If you are serious about me answering the questions you ask and do not have a Blogger account with an email address linked to it, please leave your email address or email me with your question at and I will get back with you. If you email me, be sure to put "blog question" in the subject line so I won't think it's SPAM and delete it.

For You...Warm Winter Wishes

Good Morning! I'm so glad you stopped by...I hope you had a great weekend. Our weekend was busy, 2 Christmas parties and some last minute shopping that turned out to be an all day affair. I'm not getting any younger and I really felt it yesterday! Today's card was for the host of one of the parties we went to. Years ago we made the mistake of taking a tin of cookies to a party for a vendor that my husband did business with, and now it is our "price of admission". It would be so much easier (and cheaper too) to take a bottle of wine...LOL!
Square cards aren't something I normally think about but the card Silke sent me last week was 4.25x4.25 and is perfect for a little note card. There is no doubt I will be making them often! Thank you Silke for sharing your talent and opening a whole new world of card making for me. The picture doesn't pick up the true colors of the card, it matched the cookie tins perfectly. Making the card was a last minute idea and I hadn't had a chance to eat lunch so I was munching on some popcorn and got oil on the ornament so instead of trashing it, I inked the Cuttlebug ornament and although I wasn't real pleased with the way it turned out, I didn't have time to redo it...I just hope the card didn't smell like popcorn...LOL. Let this be a warning to you, don't eat while you are crafting...I know I won't...for a while anyway!
Here is the recipe---
Card Size: Square 4.25x4.25
Cuttlebug: 3x3 For You Embossing Combo
Punches: EK Arrow Border Punch
Font: Cutting Cafe-Fancy Holiday Season Printable Stamps
Accessories: Metallic Cord, Gold Flat Back Pearls, Metallic Paint Marker, Craft Ink, Foam Pop Dots
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy your visit. And oh yes, thank you Carol, (I'll be over to visit your blog to thank you personally a little later) it was the bold that caused the double spacing, so instead of beginning with bold font, after I wrote up the recipe, I went back to add the no more double spacing! Hope to see you tomorrow...have a great day!

Beautifully done Kelly! Your stack of tins topped off with that wonderful bow and your card are perfect for gift giving. Had a good chuckle about the "popcorn fingers"! :D Tracy

Hi Kelly...Your card turned out so cute(even with popcorn fingers LOL) and goes with your cookie tins so well. That size looks perfect for sending just a little note or using as a tag. Glad someone was able to help you fix your double spacing problem!!
