No time for the recipe. The colours are real red, sage shadow and whisper white. The flower is from the Scribble This stamp set, white embossed. The greeting is from the Party Punch set. And I've used the scallop edge punch and the 1" circle punch.

The winner is...... Kathy with " Deck the Halls " Congratulations It's a bit hard to see in this photo but she has embossed, pierced and that circle at the bottom is silver. Well done Kathy.
This card is also by Kathy, with silver embossing, she even cut out those tiny flowers.
And this was created by Angie, the way she has matted the presents is very original. Love that Hodge Podge, Good job.

Katrina's colour inspiration #35. The colours are Choc Chip, Close to Cocoa, Baja Breeze I've used Soft Sky, So Saffron and Very Vanilla. The giant circle scallop is from the new Summer Mini, Carousel Notes. These are much bigger than I thought they would be and come with giant Choc Chip envelopes. Love them. I've also used some new Rub-Ons and new ribbon. As well as the new square scallop punch. I really had fun with Katrina's colours this week.I used the Crop A Dile to punch the circle inside the scallop, it gives a great lacy effect.

I embossed with silver and and used a few punches. Can you tell how much I love the new scallop edge punch?
I've had a huge week with all the end of school things, but so much fun. I attended the grade 2 Fairy Tale Ball today. It was way too hot for dancing but that didn't stop us. I also had to keep ice blocks frozen, chicken chips hot and sandwiches fresh. hmm... Luckily my friend runs the tuck shop. Thanks Deb. I still fitted in the last lunch of the year with the lovely ladies I do lunch with every week. I will miss the lunches during the holidays, but it's not the same when there are 20 kids tagging along. lol We plan to hit the park instead. And Sonya's pool.

A cute tree ornament made with the scallop circle punch.
This very easy gift box, with candy canes of course.
The kids loved this. When filling up the bag with reindeer poop some of the boys asked me how much poop do they put in? So I said " it depends on how naughty you have been this year." One boy said "I better put lots in because I've been really naughty ." giggle

The inspiration for Mel's challenge this week is this beautiful photo she took in Townsville. It looks like a post card. Her colours are Taken with Teal, Glorious Green, River Rock, Soft Sky and Whisper White.
I've combined Mel's challenge with this sketch from Taylored Expression Cupcake Challenge # 44.
I've used a few products from the new Summer Mini Catalogue. I love them all. I did have a bit of trouble getting Glorious Green in there, I used it to stamp the greeting. The sea creatures are embossed in white then punched out with a square punch and layered on punched out white scallop squares. The scalloped river rock is using the new scallop edge punch. love it love it love it.

I've used the new double stitched grosgrain ribbon from Stampin' Up!s Summer Mini Catalogue. It's so gorgeous! And the new Rub-Ons Hidden Garden, that come two sheets per pack, one white and the other Choc Chip. That's right Choc Chip. I'm in heaven. Oh, and the stamp set is new too, Eastern Bloom, it combines beautifully with the new DSP Bali Breeze. I've only used one of the pretty flowers in this set as a background. I hope you like it.
