Gift Card Holder and Sketch Take

Well hello there! I have been a bit AWOL from my blog. Life again seems to be getting in the way of me blogging.

I am back today to share a few things I have created recently for various design teams.

Hope they get you into the creative holiday spirit!

This layout was created with @chictags exclusive fall kit and a few @octoberafternoon Daily Flash Apple Cider goodies.
Love that cork owl!! Eeeee!

 This card actually can house a gift card. Simply tuck it into the hidden pocket behind the lace. ;)

Be back later with a few more to share!! :)

Sneak of Weathervane | Cocoa Daisy Kits November

Hello everyone! Are you enjoying fall where you live? We have some vivid color changes this week but the weather is anything but fall-ish! We have been breaking record high temps! Sunday is predicted to be a high of 82 degrees? Say what?!!!!

I did manage to stop in the front yard today and found a little fall at my feet. 

And then I walked back inside the house and sat down to my November Cocoa Daisy Kit; 
Weathervane. Here is a sneak image of some of the goodies in each kit:

I spy a whole lotta scrappy goodness right there!! It has been so hard walking past my kits the past few days, but I finally stole a little time away to scrap with the DITL kit and this awesome exclusive sneaker "chucks" stamp by the talented and lovely Arleigh!
Just look at the details on it:

Uh-maz-ing! (The leaf stamps are from October's exclusive stamp set and complemented the sneakers so nicely I think).  

Off to check on my Dr. Pepper pulled pork roast that's simmerin' up in the Crock Pot. I will be back soon with more sneaks!

Stopping by to share that I am up over on the October Afternoon blog sharing some of my scrap space and how I organize my OA goodies. Read more about that here.

Also, Cocoa Daisy Kits are for sale to the general public today! The Main Kit sold out the first day to subscribers! ETA: **And oh my! It looks as though there is already slim pickings as most of the kits are already sold out!! Wowza! I do spy some of the adorably cute stamp sets are still available and the patterned paper kit. Below are a few of the stamps:

It has been a crazy great start to the month at Cocoa Daisy and exciting one too with the launch of the new Daisy Day Planner kits (available here)!! And guess what?!

They are so popular that they will be actually offered as a subscription starting in January in 2015!!! *fist pump
