Now I have time to start blogging again and start enjoying the Christmas season.
I have just finished a very busy week of classes to try and catch up after the bathroom break.
This is a picture of the two cards we made. The red colour is Cherry Cobbler, it is such a rich red, great for Christmas.
We also made the Cherry Cobbler card in Pear Pizazz which made a less traditional card. Here is a picture

I have been having a lot of fun over the last month playing with the Stampin' Up ! Sweet Treat Cups. As well as holding sweets they also make great Snow Dome Cards.The first card I made was this one using the raindeer from the Winter Post stamp set. He is just the right size for the sweet treat cup.
To keep the glitter inside the sweet treat cup I sealed it with a piece of acetate. The hole in the patterned paper was made using the 1 3/4 inch circle punch which fits the sweet treat cup perfectly. This is the finished card.
- Cardstock - Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Baja Breeze Designer Paper
- Ink - Chocolate Chip
- Stamp Sets - Winter Post, Best Yet
- Accessories - Gold brads, Chocolate Chip Ribbon
Just to be a bit more adventurous I tried putting water in the Sweet Treat Cup to make it look like a real snow dome. This worked really well but I don't think I would risk putting it through the mail !
This picture shows that there really is water in there ! Just one tip, don't let any water drip onto the adhesive around the Sweet Treat Cup.
- Cardstock - Whisper White, Glossy White, Riding Hood Red dsp
- Ink - Riding Hood red
- Stamp Sets - Holiday Lineup, Short and Sweet
- Accessories - Gold brads, Riding Hood Red Stripe Ribbon
Well that’s all from me. Next stop on the INKlings’ Team Blog Hop is Michelle's blog . Have fun and don't forget to leave a comment on each blog to win some great Blog Candy.

and this is my attempt.
The envelope is made from a piece of 6" square designer paper. The white square should be a little larger than the 4" a 4" card. You need to cut a notch where the point of the white square doesn't quite touch the edge. Fold along the black lines to form the envelope. Hopefully it will become clear when you make it.
Jo's card .Don't forget many soft subtle colours will retire at the end of August so stock up while they last.

Conventions always start with exchanging swap cards which is a great way to meet people. The picture above shows my swap cards. Click here to see a better picture in a past post.
You could give one of your swaps to Stampin' Up! and they put them on boards for everyone to see. This is one of the boards. The standard of the cards was amazing.
More pictures to come in the next post.
