    NO BAKE COOKIES !!!! This recipe is an old recipe my mom was given when I was 9 yrs old. I befriended this woman's daughter who was also 9 yrs old, who's  name was Carolyn Grimley. Evey time Carolyn's parents came to the lake to camp, Carolyn's mom had a batch of those cookies for me ! Below is the recipe. HOPE YOU ENJOY IT !!

Man's Blue Jeans Pocket Card !

HI !
I made this card awhile ago, but often get inquiries as to how it was made. I created a pocket template on my own. Of course there's a lot of stamps out there that you can use to create this pocket. The "stitches " on the pocket are hand-drawn. The "red" tag ( which is normally the jean maket name ) Can say anything you want, Grandpa's Wear, Dad's Day, etc.....I also have a card made with soft suede cardstock as well....made to look like a CARHART pair of jeans
ITEMS used to make this card :
Word Window Punch
Stampin Up! Write Marker ( Night of Navy )

THIS IS AN ABSOLUTE FAVORITE PUNCH ART CARD OF MINE ! IT IS REALLY EASY TO DO.  I CASED this card from a follow Demonstrator, named PATTY BENNETT. Someone sent this card to Patty,I changed the card stock colors to make it "MY OWN". This is one of my favorite cards to create.


This BABY ONESIE CARD is a BABY SHOWER INVITATION which was created for a FRIEND's first granddaughter's baby Shower. These Onesie invitations would also be a wonderful BABY CONGRATS CARD, or a 1st BIRTHDAY CARD as well.
