CASology #56 and 10 Minute Craft Dash Birthday Challenge #23

Wow...can you believe it, it is Thursday already, this week is zipping by! Tomorrow Outside Lands starts so I will not get in much crafting time in the next 3 days...but you never know, maybe in the mornings before we leave for San Francisco.  Tomorrow we will see Sir Paul McCartney, I can mark that one off my bucket list now. 

I have 1 card and 1 project to share tonight.  The first one is a little treat/gift bag that Lucy helped me with. It took one 12x12 sheet of paper and a bit of folding and there you have it! It is good size too, 8" x 4", so big enough to hold a fun little surprise.  Since I was making it for this week's 10 Minute Craft Dash Birthday, I made it to hold a gift and decorated it with a name and a festive little balloon bouquet.  And I made it in just less than 10 minutes much fun!

I forgot to take a photo of my time so I had to reset my phone timer so I could add the time.


My card is my second card for this week's CASology "Dessert" challenge.  I am not a chocolate lover at all but know plenty of people how are so this card will find a good home.  The stamps I used are from Technique Tuesday, Eat Chocolate and are also a NBUS.  The Hershey Kisses are embossed with silver too, it is a bit hard to see that in the photo.

    Enjoy your concert!

  4. I love them both. Especially that awesome bag with my name on it! Way to get my attention. And, that chocolate card is just darling. Why oh why did I not think to make my chocolate silver, like Hershey kisses. I was thinking chocolate chips. You are so smart, and good at chocolate, too.

  5. Both fantastic projects Kim, still blown away that you created that bag in under 10--good for you and I love your take on chocolate! Thank you so much for sharing with us this week at CASology!

  6. Oh I bed you're going to have such fun! Your projects are neat!

  7. Wow, 10 minutes! That is amazing! Your chocolate card is too cute, the Hershey kisses are the perfect touch!

  8. I always do a double take when you talk about Lucy...wondering how I don't know this crafty friend of yours! I didnt know you dont like chocolate! I still am in awe of your new really is great. Love your cute treat bag...Lucy really is amazing. Im going to take another cameo class starting in Sept, you should take it with me!

  9. I almost didn't make it past the Sir Paul & Outside Lands link - have a fabulous time! Love the silver embossed Kisses on the card!

  10. Say hi to Sir Paul from me when you give him your hug! Wouldn't that be cool if you did???!!!! And your bag and card are fantastic. Sweet paper and cute balloons. Love those handles too. I'll have to try that bag sometime. And your card...yum! Really cute, and I will freely admit, I love chocolate. Love your card!!! Bev

  11. I have a lot of catching up to do as I have been out of town.
    I love how you call it Lucy!
    Love your new blog look! I have been wanting to update mine too. I will have to get the details. This is gorgeous!
    Love all the cards the chocolate one is adorable! Have fun at Outside Lands , sounds wonderful!

  12. Um. OK. I'll keep calm if you give me chocolate! lol! Great idea to 'wrap' the chocolates in silver - I wouldn't have thought of that. Thanks so much for playing along with us at CASology this week!

  13. Great cards - I hope you'll link up at 52 Card Pickup again this week!

  14. They're both fabulous!
    Love that happy treat bag...
    and I still can't get over how you don't like chocolate!!
    Good thing I just absolutely adore you or else I don't think we could be friends. *giggle*
    A fabulous take on the challenge!
    And it sounds like you're gonna have a fantastic weekend...
    I was checking the bands to see who was there...
    I'm into some Five Finger Death Punch right now...
    but alas they shall not share the stage with Sir Paul.
