I had such fun making this ornament and I just had to share.
You need the Evergreen Close To My Heart Stamp set in order to create this cool thing.
Cut a piece of cardstock 6 x 6 and then stamp four trees next to one another lining up the edges.
Add a tab to the stamped trees and cut out the entire image. Score between the trees and fold to form a little pyramid box.
Cut a strip of cardstock 1/2 x 12 and scallop one edge.
How much fun is this little trinket! These little solid bottom bags are great to give away. Fill it with a cute little gift or some yummy candy and you will hear the squeals of delight.
Here are the instructions for you to make many and give away to make someone fabulously happy! Enjoy!Cut a piece of cardstock 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 and score at 1 inch on all four sides. Then score the four corner squares diagonally to form two triangles. Glue to form a box. I used liquid glass to glue the box together for strength.

.... well this thanksgiving things don't really resemble the traditional family time. Keith is trucking across America to provide for the family. He may splurge and stop at a truck stop and have some turkey and fixins'. God bless you Keith... be safe!
Justin and Sam are working hard warming up the couch... Sarah is nowhere to be found and the cat is taking a suntan! Yup... just your traditional Thanksgiving.
Well in all seriousness I am truly thankful for all that I have. Justin decided to get off the couch and make an apple and pumpkin pie. Yum! Yum! Yum! Sarah is now out getting ingredients to make the all famous Green Bean casserole. The turkey and stuffing are in the oven thanks to me.
We may not be the Cleavers but we have a roof over our heads, food on the table and love in our hearts... what more can we ask for?
Happy Thanksgiving from the Flamingo Hut to yours!~ Cathy

My dearest brother Mike and my sister-in-law, Ella. I love them. They are my rocks. They are the people that listen to me laugh and cry. They are kind and fair. They have journeyed with me through many trials over the years and have never run from me. They worry about me, they rejoice with me, they love me. They are a part of me. I am so thankful that they are a part of my life.

So during my quiet weekend time I love to create. I was looking at my boring Rolodex and thought of it as a blank canvas. This is what I came up with. Now when I reach to call someone this little creative thing will bring a smile to my face and remind me what a blessing my creative time is.

So what better way to document these great momories than with a recipe album. So when Aunt Mary comes to your door at Christmas with her famous Angel Pie... snap a picture of her and the pie and have her jot down her recipe in your Close To My Heart Recipe Book. It's a memory and a recipe that will be cherished forever!
