Hello a quick post
The current challenge at Crafting with Dragonflies is “pegs”.
I have made these little gift bag closures/card holders from normal laundry pegs with a little SU Patterned paper, stamps and punches.

Thanks for taking a peek
Edit: These were the challenge winners
It is my walking, book club friends birthday this week.
Happy Birthday Susi
and the back
I used her favourite colour orange (SU Pumpkin Pie) along with some SU patterned paper. The image is from Papersmooches woofers and twitters coloured just like her dog Zander. The rest of the front of the card is embellished with SU Label Love and Pretty Petites and the co ordinating punches. On the back I used a Dienamics tag die and also a PTI birthday word die and stamped the “happy” from PTI Communique Curves in SU smoky slate. The stamps on the back are I think See D’s – sorry I don’t have any packaging for those. These stamps represent some of Susi’s other favourite things. The button is from Annabelle Stamps threaded with some ribbon from Kaszazz. I also stamped 2 stacks of books from Papersmooches smarty pants, coloured and attached to the top of 2 of the blocks. I put a little glossy accents on the books and “Zander’s” bow tie. This didn’t come together how I had imagined it would, I hope she likes it.
I followed this you tube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4H6Kveu0ctc for a block card
I also have a little bit more Christmas
This is my take on the current challenge at the Lollipop Ladies.
Challenge #81 Reindeer cupcakes + Grids
I have used a MFT Dienamics Traditional tags Stax (3rd largest) and added a piece of Pebbles Happy go Lucky cardstock and a small piece of red cardstock (unknown brand – truth is it was sitting next to my guillotine). I punched a hole in the top and threaded some WRMK red and white twine through. Rudolf (no red nose) was made using the SU owl punch and little leaves die. I drew the whites of his eyes with a gel pen. I got the inspiration for Rudolf from Jacquii McLeay http://splotchdesign.blogspot.com.au/search/label/owl%20punch
There is a second challenge also running at the Lollipop Ladies
You can enter either challenge at the moment.
Hope your week has got off to a great start.

I have used Stampin UP! Winter Frost DSP, SU Pool Party CS & ribbon along with Annabelle Stamps Cuts by Design Border 1 die cut in Sparkle glitter paper (source unknown). I have also used 1 3/4″ circle punch, SU Artisian Label punch, SU Label Love stamp (Smokey grey ink), 3/4″ circle punch and SU mixed medley stamp set in Coastal cabana ink.
Hope you have had a great weekend

I came across this great video yesterday and was totally inspired.
I made this very cute and really simple gift box. I used some retired Stampin UP! 12″ x 12″ cardstock I think it is stitches or something like that please forgive me. I used a strip of SU Polka Dot Parade CS for the belly band and the new label love set stamped with SU Lucky Limeade and used the co ordinating Artisan Punch. As I was making this up I realised I was using the colours from the Moxiefab World Tuesday Trigger. Now if I had realised before I started I would have used some chevrons or stripes too – basing my link on the colours only.

Almost the end of the school holidays. Just a few more days left. Should be back into our routine by Tuesday when everyone is back at work/school.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thank you for your lovely comments.
