CDS Sneak Peeks Day Two - Need Gift Ideas??

The new set Quick Lists is so much fun!! It has words for all the more important lists you might need... Wish List, Shopping List, Honey-Do List... *and* it has checkboxes!! I love checkboxes!! I made a little Wish List for me to give to my dh for Christmas present ideas... Hmmm, what would I like??? Copics, a Vera Bradley Cosmetic Bag, a Starbucks gift card, some of the Labels Nesties, ribbon, paper, stamps.... Am I out of lines???? LOL!!!! Well, you get the idea! I stamped my Quick List and words and then used the snowman and bird from the Snowman Wishes set in the corner. There are pink clouds in the background just to make it pretty! :-)

This next little gift bag has sour gummy bears in it. Or maybe I should say it *did*. They were very good... ;-) The little tag is made with the Chubby Chickadee and What a Tweet stamps. I love the chickadee. He looks fat and fluffy and makes me want to pet him!! He's colored in Copics and the dp is Cosmo Cricket Early Bird. Hmmm... how appropriate!

My next card uses another individual stamp - the verse I Thessalonians 5:17. I've paired it with a previously released $1 stamp called "Poppy". This was a quick and easy card that I took the time to watercolor - something I haven't done for awhile. I simply stamped my image on watercolor paper and then used my waterbase markers and a Niji waterbrush. If you click on the picture you can see that I also traced the word 'Pray' with my red marker to give it some extra definition. Areen't all the individual stamps and sentiments this month been fun?? Which ones are your favorites so far??

My final project would be a perfect little bookmark for a friend, a quick note to someone who needs encouragement, or a sweet tag for a gift. I used the Flourish Cross (in pale plum) and the I Prayed for you Today sentiment (in Soft Suede).

Be sure to visit my DT sisters for more projects, and I'll see you back here tomorrow for Day Three!!
