Snowflakes Thank Yous

How was everyone's Christmas? As always mine was a busy one. Went to the in-laws side on Christmas Eve and my side of family on Christmas day. Made my Christmas cards last minute like two weeks before Christmas. Not a good idea to do that. Note to self. Make Christmas cards earlier next year.

Here are some "thank you" cards I whip up in no time. Very easy and fast to make.

I stamped the main images using the Serene Snowflakes stamp set. I love this set so much and use it a lot. The bigger snowflake can be the main image and the small ones can be use to make background paper.

There is a rhinestone in the middle of the bigger snowflake. You can't see it in the photo too well but very pretty in real life.

Thank you for stopping by today.

Happy Stamping!

Snowman Tags For Master Clubs

I made these little tags to go with the goody bags I put together for the little clubbers from Master Clubs. We had a Christmas party tonight for the little children. Fun games and food too. I'm so stuff right now.

I left the images not colour so the children can colour them themselves. Some of the children got so excited they coloured the tags right away. Some drew in the note books already too. Each bag has a notepad, box of crayons and chocolate loonies (Canadian dollars).

Thank you for stopping by.

Merry Christmas!

Ladies' Christmas Tea 2011 Part 2

Today I'm showing you pictures of my table.

Here is a picture of my friend and I next to our table. We hosted a table together.
She and I made most of the decorations.

Another view of our table.

The centre piece was branches sprayed in silver. My friend had this crazy idea to have the branches silver coloured but we both don't know how to do it. My wonderful husband graciously sprayed it silver for us.
He also sprayed the rocks too to match the branches. The rocks helped way down the branches so they wont top over.

I crocheted this flower. I made 8 of these and they were very easy to crochet. It was a napkin ring and the guest can also take it apart from the ring and wear the flower.
My friend crocheted a sample and I copied it. I don't understand written instructions on crocheting.

Here was an ornament I made using the Petal Cone Die. 
Added some snowflakes and glitters to them.

My friend folded the napkins. They were shaped like a tree.
She also block printed the words onto the napkins. 
She have an Etsy store quotesandnotes where she sells block printing items and other goodies.

Our place setting.

See the crocheted snowflake on the glass cup? My friend crocheted that. 
She made white ones also. And the tag on the straw she did that too.

Close up of the crocheted snowflakes and crochet yarn balls.

My friend made this banner that goes around the table. 
The words on the banner are the same as the napkin.

The place card was made using the Top Note Die folded in half and then embossed.
The lollipop was chocolate covered Oreo cookie on a stick.

Close up of the place cards.

Beautiful origami cranes made by my friend. They are made from fabric. 
The words are the same words as the napkin. 

 This was the table runner made from red burlap. 
I used crochet thread to do the edges and the snowflakes.
The snowflakes were a challenge. It took me awhile to do them.

I just tied the ends of the crochet thread into a bow. Nothing too fancy.

Last but not least. We gotta have a picture of the goodies. These were just some of them.
There were at least 18 different kinds of yummies. I'm sad I didn't get a picture of the jello cheesecake squares my friend made. It was yummy.

Hope you all enjoy looking at the decorations from the other tables and ours.

Merry Christmas!

Ladies' Christmas Tea 2011 Part 1

Few! Finally finished creating. This past Saturday my church hosted a Ladies' Christmas Tea and it was so much fun. My friend and I went all out on the decorating. I look forward to this event every year and so do the other ladies. There were 70-74 ladies came. There were 9 tables and I hosted one of the table. My friend co-hosted with me. Each table had two hostesses to do decorating and baking. We all had to make 60 cookies of 2 kinds. That's a lot of cookies and goodies. But who is complaining, right? You can never have too much. I mean this is the time of year we get to indulge ourselves in the goodies and not feel too bad about it. hehe

Anyway, this is going to be a long post so grab yourself a cup of tea or your favourite drink and enjoy all the pictures I have for you to see. I tried my best to take as many pictures as possible. Not easy decorating your table and at the same time go around and take pictures. I'm so thankful my friend did most of the decorating so I can go around and take pictures.

Here it goes. There are no particular order to the tables.

Table #1
Nice a simple red and white decorations.

Place setting. Folded fan like napkins. 
I like how the silverware was put into a cute folded napkin pocket.

Table #2
Greenery decorations. I love the centre piece.

Place setting. Cute little pine cone with a ribbon on top.

Close up of the pine cone.

Table #3
Very simple and elegant decorations. Kinda antique like. 
I think that's what it is.

Place setting. I love this place setting.

Table #4
Red and green decorations. Very impressive table.

Place setting.

Not sure what this was. Might be a water jug. Should've asked.

Cool personalized sign.

Don't you just love the chocolate fondu platter in the middle there?

Here's a close up of the fondu platter.

Table #5
A sweet factory table. Yummy decorations. You can get your sugar fix here. hehe

Yummy candies trees.

Place setting. I love the beautiful tea cup and saucer.

Wonderful sweet verse from the Bible.

More tea cups and saucers. They are all so different and unique.

Another sweet verse. Love this verse.

Aren't these the cutest marshmallow snowmen?

Here are some more snowmen.

Table #6
 Lots of candy canes here. Red and green decorations.

 Place setting. Shiny green charger. 
I never knew what a charger was before until I hosted a table a few years ago.

Don't you just love this centre piece? I think the hostess made it.
All real decorations here.

Table #7
 Another simple and elegant decorations.
The place setting is beautiful. To bad I didn't get a close up picture of it.

 Angels and star decorations. They were praising God in highest of Jesus birth.

Nativity scene on a cake.

Unfortunately I was unable to take pictures of one table. We rented at a community so we had to start on time and the hostess was late. I try to take pictures without people because some might not like their faces all over the internet. Hope you enjoy all these wonderful pictures of all the tables. I'll show my table on the next post.

Merry Christmas!
