The mother of my husband's friend passed away recently and he wanted to go out and buy a sympathy card for his friend. I said, "Would you like me to make one?" His reply, "Oh yeah! You can make one!" Helllooooo........... Anyway, I had to come up with something very simple and fast so he could get it to his friend today. I embossed on Core'dinations paper and then lightly sanded over the embossing. I then stamped "in sympathy" with the same color ink as the paper, cut the tag, added a few pearl drops and attached the tag with some pop dots. Very fast, very easy, but a nice effect. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful and safe New Year's Eve and a terrific New Year!

In each front pocket I place a card with the instructions for that particular date and inside the envelopes I put the "ingredients" for that date. Here are just a couple of examples.
For the remaining date ideas, I made a small book and listed them all in that. It seems that everything is an "ology" anymore, so I titled the book "Dateology". There are enough ideas for every week of the year with a few left over!
I sure hope they like it...and you too! Thank you for stopping by to have a peek and have a very Merry Christmas!
