I had one of these tins from Princess Auto that I hadn't altered yet, and felt it had come time to do something about it. Nice paper eh?? I thought it would be great to give someone with a nice chocolate treat inside :)!! I wanted to put a message on the little stamped message note, but I didn't know what to put...any ideas??

make a card with any layout that uses mostly free hand doodles. It doesn't matter what embellishments you use, or what sketch you use to create it, it just has to have a lot of freehand doodles. Impossible?? I think not?? Now, I can just imagine what all my friends are saying now that were at a SU night where we had to draw our own flower stems (lol, there was a gasp in the room at the thought of drawing freehand). I would love to see your creations, so please e-mail them to me at :
I will give you until Feb 3rd (my bday, and no I won't tell you how old I will be), to sent me your creations. Have fun with this challenge please, I thought it would be a great challenge to get you all thinking outside the box and also get you to get out of your comfortable crafty zones. Even I need to have more practice with my doodles, as you can see with my card above :p!

Here are my dh's Uncle Ray and Aunt Judy, Ray is my dh's dad's brother...what can I say his dad came from a large family :)! Ray is really into those model trains, he has a great set up of trains in his basement...my 2 boys love going over to their home to play with the trains with Great Uncle Ray. Aunt Judy is one of the Aunt's that I usually goto the Christmas Craft shows with :)!
Here are Nanny (my dh's grandmother) talking with Mrs. Peach *she is sitting down*, and Uncle Paul (Mrs. Peach's son) . I always enjoy talking to Mrs. Peach, she is always such a delight to talk to :) and I always look forward to seeing her at Aunt Diane's open house at Christmas time.
My dd was walking around the room, when all of the sudden she came to a complete stop...then she looked up at this older gentleman. I don't know who this gentleman is except that his name is Mr. Mason, and my dd isn't one for picking out strangers to pick her up and hold her, lol! Next, she raised her hands above her head which usually means pick me up and too her surprise he knew what it meant...he bent down and picked her up. She stayed in his arms for a minute or two, and I think she just might have made that older gentlemans day because he couldn't wipe the huge smile off of his face. Then she wanted to get down, and off she went...it was too cute!!
