Here is a peak at a few of the cards I'll be doing in our November class.
The first I did CASE from my up-line Nance Leedy... who did a CASE from Linda Callahan.  The CASE is using the Post-It Tape technique.
I have to say this will be one of my FAVORITE techniques going forward. I can't wait to try it out with other colors.
I love using the Post-It Tape to mask off the section that is inked and blended. So easy and no risk of the paper moving on you. Then it comes off nice and clean and I added the black images.
Another is using some favorite retired DSP and a fun PTI die.
I really wanted to make an Anniversary card with the pear that says "The lovely pair" but I forgot to order the hostess set Silhouette & Script  in my last SU order!

Boss's Day!

Today is Boss's Day if you didn't know that... and since I have 3 layers of Boss's ...
(V.P., Director and Manager) .... I decided to make them each a little bag of goodies.
Also ... they are all German and freshly transplanted here for 3 year terms.
These are the "dotted treat bags" from SU. I used some die cut leaves and a couple of tags to decorate the outside.
The inside has cello bags filled with a surprise mixture my friend Sherriee turned us stampers on to a few years ago at our weekly get-together. It's Salted Peanuts / Candy Corn mixture... it creates a yummy 'sweet & salty' taste in your mouth.
Since I took these photos,  I decided to change the mixture to taller cello bags and then I tied with Pistachio and Pumpkin colored twine. Then I added a cute little "sugar, sugar"  To/From tag and clipped it to the twine with a mini clothespin.
Here is  a closer look at the banner treat tag.
I get to work about an hour before each of them, so I was able to put one on each of their desks. They were soooooooo surprised! One of them asked me if this was a "Real Day" in the USA.... funny.
I think the FALL theme turned out cute; but masculine enough to handle all the embellishments.
 What do YOU think?
