Happy New Year, Bonne Année

Happy New Year everyone – Bonne Année!

I had a long blogging break over the Holidays and now I have a cold… almost everybody in Montreal has a cold these days… Stay away… LOL

I have quite a few things to share – cards and projects I did at the last minute for Christmas and since then….

First I will share some of the “surprise” cards that I made and sold quite a few of them…

and then I decided to make some for our Christmas table… not a good idea it seems, a lot of them got damaged when my niece filled the waterglasses and water drops fell on them…. oh well next year, I’ll put chocolate on every plates instead…

These are the ones I made for a special order.  You can see the chocolate bar “surprise” when it is pulled out with the ribbon.

You can see an individual one here:

All the supplies used were listed in my post here:


Here are the ones I made for Christmas dinner.  I made 14 French ones and 1 English.  Here is the English one:


Here is a French one.  As I forgot to take the photo before, i found one with as little water damage as possible…

Stardream brown cardstock
