Reindeer Games

YIPPIE! I'm done with the ginormous Christmas cards! I finally put the finishing touches on the cards I've been making for our HR department, and delivered the stack of 50 cards this morning! A weight has been lifted! Now to tackle the other 50 things on my to-do list!

Here is another one of the projects I was working on this weekend. I was in Michael's on black Friday, & wandered past the dollar section. I am SUCH a sucker for little dollar gifties, it's not even funny. Michaels had these little pocket sudoku pads for $1.00 each, plus I had a coupon for 20 percent off my entire purchase. So these little guys were .80 each! What a steal! I scored about 10 of them and decided to give them out at our family Christmas gathering to all of my rellies. I took heavy cardstock (Stampin Up Night of Navy) and made little covers for the sudoku pads. They are like a little note pad, only each page is a sudoku puzzle. I used my favorite Penny Black Christmas critters & Snowbound Pixel to decorate the fronts of the pads.
The paper is from My Minds Eye, Signature Frost Collection. I used my Copics to color all of these little images in, and then embellished the fronts of the pads with buttons & ribbon. I wanted to try to make a magnetic buckle closure on them but have been digging through my stamp area for an hour looking for my package of Basic Grey Magnetic snaps, to no avail. So I gave up. No closures. DANG!

What a great idea. Shame we don't have 'Michael's' here in Australia. It sounds like it's a great place to go.

Keep up the good work,

Sharon
