My husband is mixing up his job a little, so as a little bye bye gift I made cookies and put them in these cute little boxes and added tags for each for his co-workers.
The cookies you ask?
Mexican wedding cookies, Lemon Ricotta cookies, Oatmeal and cranberry cookies, Double chocolate cookies and Cranberry, lemon and chocolate biscotti, that turned into biscuits because I missed a crucial step in the biscotti making steps.
After the kitchen was all clean I started all over with a full Roast beef dinner with mashed potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, salad and roasted veg tossed in this amazing mixture of black cherry vinegar, brown sugar, garlic, pepper and a touch of salt.
Maybe I will have a card later in the week, I used my new stamps on the tags but they are small and not worthy of a post.

First things first, I stocked up on some of the items that are in need, I was running low on my Scotch double sided mounting tape, then came some Ink Essentials foam and applicator, some little daubers. Then came the additions, Distress inks in Frayed Burlap and Brushed Corduroy and Thomas Kincaid Christmas paper (yes Christmas). Lastly was my Memory Box Fix, just on the shelves new 6 x 6 Jubilee paper and some new stamps.
These are some of the new stamps on display, I love all of these but I only ended up buying two as I wanted to save a little bit on my gift card for my next lapse in creativity.
This is a teaser of Jubilee, the paper are so pretty.If I am lucky I will have a card or two to post near the end of the week. Who am I kidding it is Thursday, the rain is suppose to return on Sunday maybe that will be a good day to lock myself in my craft space.
