Children's Hanukkah Basket May Arts Style

We have several friends who will be celebrating Hanukkah (or Chanukkah) which this year falls on Thanksgiving day.  The next time Hanukkah falls on November 27th is the year 2146!

My friend gave me some ideas for a fun gift for a child.  Pop over to the May Arts Blog to see the rest of my gift.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Hanukkah to all of our Jewish friends!

Tying the Knot Blog Hop & Giveaway

It's official!  Our very own  Ribbon Lady is tying the knot and we are so very happy for her and her guy, Joe.

The Ribbon Lady (aka Bethney) is a very special woman. Not only is she beautiful and talented, her heart is as big as the beach she loves so much.  It's an honor and a privilege to be able to share in her happiness.  

Each Ribbonista has created a card for Bethney and Joe to wish them the very best.

I decided to keep with the beach idea and go super simple and serene.  I created my card using Kraft cardstock and my computer because I wanted to personalize it just for them.   The outside is simple...

 The fun is on the inside...I custom printed the sentiment then added May Arts 1/8" Burlap Cord tied so that when the card is fully opened, the two cords pull into one single knot.  I didn't take it all the way here, just in case it pulled too tight!

Two hearts, one love.

CONGRATULATIONS BETHNEY AND JOE!    "A wedding is a day, a marriage is a lifetime."  Wishing you a marriage full of love, laughter and sweet surprises.

Some of our terrific Partners in Craft have graciously contributed awesome goodies so you can get in on the celebration as well.

How is that for a celebration?!!  

In addition, I'm giving away a Xyron 510 Creative Station (!) and Jessica Kephart is throwing in the Holiday Edition of Made in Paper Magazine!  

Here's the hop list.  We would love for you to leave a message for Bethney and Joe on the May Arts Facebook Page

Thanks for joining us!

Clean & Simple Monday - CAS All Star Challenge Frosty and Festive

I know...don't faint.  I actually made a card and it felt so good!

The SplitCoastStampers Clean & Simple Design Team Alumni are all joining together to bring you an All Star Holiday Season  of card inspiration.  They've graciously allowed me to participate in this week's challenge which is an inspiration challenge.

This week is a Pinterest Inspiration Challenge - Frosty & Festive (CAS246).  We were given 3 photos and could choose one or all 3.  I chose this one.  I just love the simple elegance of this wreath.

Here's my take on the photo.  I wanted to include the pretty white flowers but finding a background paper the white ink would show up on proved a challenge in itself.  I decided to go totally non-traditional and this was the result: 

I think I like it.  Come and play along with us!

Cardstock - Papertrey Ink; Bazzill Metallic Lines; Stampin'Up
Stamps - Papertrey Ink Wreath for all Seasons, Holiday Button Bits
Ink - Hero Arts Mid-Tone Tidepool; Tsukineko Versacraft White, Delicata Golden Glitz, Encore Ultimate Metallic Silver
Other - White Detail Embossing powder - Sparkle N Sprinkle
