Season's Greetings Notepad

Happy Hump Day Peeps!!!

Sorry for the no post yesterday, I am not motivated this week and I really need to be I have an etsy order to fill, my sweet Sunday card to make and my regular post to keep up with and I am contemplating planning a get together on the 30Th for some girls stamping! What a time to lose the motivation to create....LOL! I just want to do nothing!! I hate in when this happens!! LOL!

Well, on to what I have for you today. I actually made this a while back, I found this little note pad at my local dollar general and I knew I wanted to try to make a cover for it. I like to have these little things on hand for last minute gifts. The pad measures 4 x 6, so it is a great size to carry in your tote. I made a inside pocket to hold receipts, stamps, whatever.

Inside shot:

I used real red card stock for the base, it is 6-1/4 inches by 8-5/8 inches. I scored at 4-1/8 and 4-1/2. Easy Peasy! I used the little Christmas girl from the Greeting Card Kids stamp set. I stamped with black stazon onto whisper white and colored in with my aqua painter and my ink pads. The paper is from the "Candy Cane" DS pack. The sentiment is from "Curly Cute". I added some red rick-rack from my stash. Next one I want to add a pen holder and maybe some brads to the inside pocket.

Well, I am off to get things going around here, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!

Hi Vicki....I'm feeling the same 'non'-mojo. I think it's exhaustion on my part, but I need to snap out of it. This little gem has really peaked my excitement...really like the whole outcome. These would be great little gifts to my hostesses! TFS!

A really cute idea. And makes a great last minute gift. After the long weekend with company and no creating, I am feeling a lot like you - not much desire to tax the brain. It'll come back; it always does.
