What Could Be Sweeter? *amuse-bouche*
If you have been reading my blog for at least six months, you know that around Christmas, I get a little crazy with my baking and host a Cookie Party for family, friends and neighbors. Last year, the party had to be postponed because of snow, but a week later we feasted on cookies, cookies and more cookies. It is something I look forward to doing all year.
Well, you can imagine that I was doing a bit of a happy dance when I saw some of the new A*Muse*A*Palooza stamps were all about the sweets! Gingerbread delights and sugar plum treats - be still my heart. I began to think that I could use these for invitations for this year's party. After browsing some sketch blogs, I found an idea on Moxie Fab World - Finding Inspiration in a Layout. I played around with it a bit and here is what I did:
I pulled up the mini calendar that Linda shared on the AMN blog a while back and decreased the size a little. It will be great to just circle the date right on there! The rest is easy to see, just a simple pocket card.
I've got lots of ideas for this set, so I'll have more to share with you sometime after AMAP is over. Tomorrow, though, is something else *new* so see you then!
