Post It Note Cover

     It's been a long while since I did an "Anything But a Card" project but that's our theme at QKR Stampede this week so...  I made a cover for my Post It Notes tray.  This image is called "Write Soon" (Digi 12807) and it just seemed perfect for this.


And here it is with the cover open.


     The image is colored with ProMarkers, fussy cut, and adhered to black CS, cut to size for the cover.  Before I made the cover, the note tray was just open and had no cover.

     I picked these up at my local office supply store and will be giving away 2 more of them as little gifts.

     Challenges:

     I hope your Thanksgiving was warm and wonderful and filled with family joys.  Our plans changed drastically when my wonderful SIL broke his leg -- a very serious break involving both the bones in his lower leg, high above the ankle.  Orthopedic surgeons refer to this as a classic "ski boot break" since it's common with skiers who tumble and the breaks take place above where their boots hold the foot and leg in a stable position. He had to have surgery on Wednesday afternoon to set both bones for proper healing.  He won't be able to walk for several days and then he'll be on crutches for many weeks after that.

     Since Thanksgiving dinner was planned for their house with about 12 or 13 people involved, we all had to change plans at more or less the last minute.  So, I have a whole roasted turkey with wild rice dressing, some pies, and a raspberry cheesecake still at my house which were originally planned for the Thanksgiving crowd.  :-D  Anyone want to show up and help me eat all that stuff or are you already sick of turkey and pies?  

     Come play with us in our challenge at QKR Stampede this week.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Great cover for your note holder Connie! The image is just precious and love your beautiful coloring on it. Cute idea for a little gift to someone too.
We keep trying to catch a flight out to California to help you eat some of those goodies! LOL! Hope your son in law recovers soon.
