How cute!

Hello all! I've had a great response to the Secret Angel Swap that is at the top. Eight people have signed up so far! Woohoo! There is still time to sign up and room for lots more so go ahead...you know you want to! After the sign up deadline I'll be putting a link to the swap information in the left hand column so it is easy for everyone to find!

Look what I received in the mail last week! I helped my friend Debby with a couple of questions that she had on her blog and she sent me this stinkin' cute post it note holder! Did you notice it is pink? How did she know that I LOVE pink? I know that the polar bear is from a retired SU! set but I'm not sure the name. I believe the base cardstock is Pink Passion. Maybe Debby will comment and tell us the measurements and such...please? I put this in my purse so that I always have a piece of paper available. Now, if the pen were that easy to find! LOL!

You enjoy your day and sign up for the swap!

***Edit: Debby was kind enough to share her instructions in the comment section but I thought I'd put them here as well. Thanks so much Debby!***

Cut card stock at 3 1/2 x 11 and score at 5 1/2 and then 1/2 inch from that on both sides. This makes so it will be mountain and valley folds so that the post it paper fits inside with out it looking bulky. Stamp your card stock with snowflakes. I did the inside and outside with the same snowflakes. Punch with the word punch at the top for a handle. Put a ribbon across the middle and stamp your image on ww card stock, color in and layer on a coordinating color. Mount this to post it note cover. And your done! Now wasn't that an easy project to make? Optional: I added Crystal Effects to the scarf, skates and hot choc and heart on the cup to make them stand out more from the bear. I love the effect this give the bears.
