Here is what I did.
Cut out card stock approx. 5.5 x 1.5 inches (14x3 cm).
Use a fancy punch to make the end of it pretty.
Stamp it with the great handmade stamp custom made for me by Neon Canvas, a great etsy shop that makes custom stamps. She has now opened a new shop - visit her here!
Add some embossing powder and then heat it with a heating tool for embossing.
Add colour coordinated ribbons.
I think they turned out pretty great!
I'll be including one with many purchases from my shop ~ ennadoolf ~ on etsy.

Yes, today is my 2 year Etsy-versary!
My shop is ennadoolf.etsy.com
I'd like to take a moment to thank all of my customers from the past two years. It is such a great feeling to check email and see that notice from Etsy that someone has purchased something from my shop - I'm always excited to see what has been chosen, who has chosen it, and where it is going.
Then, taking the time to package each item carefully for its journey - whether it be across town, across Ontario or Canada, or internationally. Each and every time I get a little glow inside knowing that something I created will make someone else happy.
Thanks so much, too, to all the members of my Etsy teams: EtsyKnitters, EtsyFAST (Fiber Artists), WWWG (Wild Wise Witty Grandmas), Forest City Crafters and Oh Canada Team. The support from each of these teams is phenomenal and the sharing that takes place makes each a community I'm thankful to be part of.
And thanks to all of my facebook fan! If you'd like to be a fan, here is my facebook page link: http://www.facebook.com/ennadoolf
More thanks go to my blog readers. :) Not all of you are official followers and some of you may even be anonymous followers, not all of you leave comments, but each and every one of you is appreciated.
And happy Spring!!
Today I thought I'd match up listings by fellow Team ESST members that relate to cookies!
Why? Because tonight I'm joining the Girl Guides to sell Girl Guide cookies in our neighbourhood! These are the spring classic cookies - chocolate and vanilla - and they are in a limited edition 100th anniversary box! Cool eh!
And here are some equally cool Team ESST items to tempt you to create!
What's more cookies and Brownies than a mushroom cookie cutter from sweetestelle's shop?
Here is Fresh Baked Biscuit Cabochons from ToffeeHouse's shop...
What about a cookie jar to put it all in? You can make one with this Frog Cannister pattern in my shop!

Another week of no winning cups.
Thanks to hubby, I have winners. :)
Yes, he won 2 coffees and gave me his winning rims.
So it was a non-winning week, but not really. It works for me!

H went on to say that M initially waited in the Bahamas till a group of boats had assembled because they were very worried about security.
So I just want to say how proud I am of this young woman that I don't know.
(still doing good deeds!)

Yesterday I bought an extra coffee and it paid off! One of them provided a winning cup - for a donut!
Earlier this week my co-workers thought I'd won the Rav4! I was so excited! My winning cup produced a free coffee - since it was my first winner, I celebrated as if it *was* the Rav4!
Remember, don't double cup!
Use a cup cozy!
Manly work sock designs available now!
