December re-cap

Happy New Year to all of you!  We hope you had a wonderful holiday season filled with lots of family and friends.  Ours was filled with food, crafting, company and more food!  If you have not had much time for yourself or time in your craft room, we thought we would re-cap December just for you.  


TAKE FLIGHT
December's Creative Cafe Kit of the Month features unique stamps.  They differ a bit from our usual stamps.  This month they are filled with different patterns of micro dots, french toile and floral prints.  They are beautiful stamped or embossed.  The detail on these can not be matched.  The stamp set "Soaring Above" is included in your kit along with beautiful papers from Carta Bella "Moments & Memories," gems from Queen & Co., and other coordinating embellies.  You can purchase "Winging It" as an add-on that completely compliments everything in this kit.  Take a look.  Want in on the fun?  Go HERE to sign up.

FOOD!!!
In this section, possibly the most important section of the entire email, is about our favorite foods.  My favorite recipe, one of our designer's favorites, or something we found on Pinterest, from a friend or in a cookbook. 

Are you drooling?

Ok, so maybe I didn't need to make this photo quite so big.   But come on people, you know they look delicious!!!  
Our  design team member Mary-Ann Maldonado 
has a yearly tradition of making peanut butter balls with her son at Christmas time.  She has tricked him into rolling,  because its fun.  Right?  

If you want to see more of our favorites, follow us on PINTEREST.

See you next month,
The Rubber Cafe Team
