National Teacher Appreciation Week

Last week was National Teacher Appreciation Week, and what a great opportunity to say thank you to your child's teacher.  Teachers serve such a special part of everyone's life, they are the educators of the future and truly deserve recognition.  Just think back your school days, did you have a special teacher that was always there and always believed in you, even if you didn't believe in yourself?  So, SayDie PaperCrafts wants to salute all teachers and thank them for all that they have done!  Here is a pic of the teacher gift that SayDie provided to Shauntabia's daughter last week.  If you were unable to provide a gift for your special teacher, it's not too late.

Santa's Pick Me Up

Everyone needs a little pick me up every now and then, including Santa Claus.  That's why Ms. Claus created a very special mix that she has been packing in Santa's sack for many, many years.  It's called Santa's Pick Me Up.  It's Santa all time favorite get going snack and Ms. Claus has decided share her very special recipe with the rest of the world and the most adorable poem that the elves created about Santa's very special snack.  Here is how is goes...

Santa flying in his sleigh
On busy Christmas Day
He is tired from his work
That his head begins to jerk
He reaches for a sugar snack
That Ms. Claus packed in his sack
Now he is up and ready to go
So he can spread his cheer, Ho Ho Ho!!

So what's the special recipe?  Caramel Corn, Peanuts and White Chocolate Covered Pretzel Balls.

Try some of Santa's Pick Me Up today, it just may give you a little boost too!

Photo coming soon!!

Embellish Magazine, Background Stamping Challenge

As soon as SayDie saw this challenge, we had to jump on it!  Gray is the new neutral for fall and the yellow color combination is the perfect compliment to the fabulous color.  This challenge is geared towards background stamping and this truly was a challenge.  We used a damask stamp to stamp the background onto black cardstock with Versamark ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.  The idea was to go with simplicity, something not overwhelming or extremely busy.  The simple single rose was stamped in StazOn and we paper pieced the rose in yellow on the stamped rose that had been stamped onto white cardstock.  Hope you enjoy the card.  Just a reminder, if you stop by, please comment, we love to read feedback from visitors; and if you like what you see, please become a follower.  Thanks!!

This is SayDie's first time participating in the Taylored Expressions Challenge, and as usually, we are excited!  The majority on the paper on this card come from the DCWV Latte Stack.  This is some awesome paper!  It's so thick and sturdy and cuts really smooth.  That's all for today, hope you like the card and have a happy weekend.

Mojo Monday No. 155

Wow, time truly does pass quickly!  It's been nearly a month since we've posted anything.  It's been a very busy time with Conzuela's upcoming wedding and the holidays, but we're still here and are ready to post a new card.  This card was made for our mom, Annie Ruth, who will be celebrating her 65th birthday this coming Friday.  We would just like to wish her a very happy birthday and MANY, MANY more!!  It's been a while since we've participated in Mojo Monday, but this week was a perfect opportunity with our Mom's birthday being right around the corner.  Hope you like the card and we have much more coming within the next couple of weeks.
