Big On Birthdays

Hello & Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a nice weekend!
A late start for me this morning!
Shawn got up for work and I must have fallen back to sleep and died! Finally about 9:45 the doggies were jumping all over me to get me up! And it's such a beautiful morning filled with lots of sunshine.....for now.

So today I am sharing 2 cards made for my customer who requested something special for her 2 granddaughters who have birthdays in April. I pulled out that beautiful Petal Garden Pack and got to work!

Petal Garden DSP is every bit as lovely as it's name! Such pretty colors and it's one of those papers that will do all the work for you!

Card Details:

Stamps: Big On Birthdays
Ink: Calypso Coral, Sweet Sugarplum
Cardstock: Calypso Coral, Sweet Sugarplum, Pool Party, Whisper White
Accessories: Pool Party Enamel Dots, Pool Party Ribbon, Glue Dots, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

I'm hoping my pretty springtime cards will bring on Spring tomorrow instead of snow. Keeping my fingers crossed! πŸŒ·πŸŒΈπŸŒΌπŸ‡

My thoughts today....


That is all for now!
Thanks for stopping by & have yourself a great day!

Easter Hello Wood Crates

Hello & Happy Sunday!

It's looking like a beautiful day here in south central PA!
I am hoping to go to the Rail Trail this afternoon for a walk and take advantage of the sunshine and 50's!

I want to share another Easter Treat today!
These are probably my favorites!

My customers loved the Wood Crates done up at Christmas time so I wanted to make them again but with the colors of spring. I found the Easter Grass at Michael's  and loved the pops of color it brought to the each crate. My tag on the cello bags was cut using a die in the Popcorn Box Thinlits. 

Project Details:

Stamps: Easter Hello, You're Inspiring (sentiment)
Ink: Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake, Pool Party
Cardstock: Blushing Bride, Pool Party, Whisper White
Accessories: Stitched Shapes Framelits, Popcorn Box Thinlits, Wood Crates Framelits, Cello Bags, Blushing Bride & Pool Party Twine, Rhinestones, Handheld Hole Punch, Dimensionals, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

I filled each cello bag with a bite sized Snickers, Twix, 3 Muskateer, Milky Way bars plus a Reese's PB Egg. Lots of chocolate yumminess!

My thoughts today....

Technically Tuesday is the first day of Spring but we may be getting another snow storm. It's still up in the air whether it will be rain or snow. 
I'm hoping for rain so that our spring bulbs will start blooming! 

That is all for now!
Thanks for stopping by & enjoy your day!

Guy Greetings

Hello & Happy Friday!

So happy the weekend is here!
I busted my butt this week on Easter Treats & a card order. 
Now I need to sit and create some cards to make with my stamp friends next weekend!
I hope some creativity comes to me! LOL

Today I have a masculine birthday card.
I left the paper do all the work!

I got this pack of Designer Series Paper a few weeks ago and wasn't really keen on it at first.
It's grown on me and one thing I do like are the colors in it!

Card Details:

Stamps: Guy Greetings
Ink: Night of Navy
Cardstock: Night of Navy, Very Vanilla, True Gentleman DSP
Accessories: Tailored Tag Punch, Gold Metallic Enamel Dots, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

Yep, quick & easy and flat for mailing!

We Must Celebrate

Hello & Happy Thursday!

Hope your all having a great week! We're almost to the weekend!

Today I have another treat to share for Easter.
I used some Take Out Boxes that I found at the Dollar Tree a few weeks ago. 
8 boxes for $1.00! Can't beat that! 
Oh and they are really sturdy too!

I put some shred paper in the bottom of these and added a bunch of Hershey's Chocolate Eggs with Hershey's Miniature's candy bars. Filled the box up nicely!

Project Details:

Stamps: We Must Celebrate (bunny), Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Memento Black, Bermuda Bay, Copic Markers
Cardstock: Powder Pink, Whisper White
Accessories: Circle Layering Framelits, Classic Label Punch, Daffodil Delight Enamel Dots, Bermuda Bay Shimmer Ribbon (SAB 18), Glue Dots,  Mini Dimensionals, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

You could easily add a few bucks or even a gift card to these at Easter.
I usually do this for my grown kids! LOL
Candy & money go hand in hand!

My thoughts today....

Our winter is just not going anywhere!
I suppose Spring will get here eventually!

That's all for now!
Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!

Bunny Treats

Hello & Happy Wednesday!

A late start to my day and on top of that I have a busy day ahead!

I wanted to share a cute treat I made up for Easter.
This just uses that adorable bunny from last year's Easter set called, Basket Bunch.
I picked up some Hershey's candies and put them in a cello bag and added the adorable tags!

My tags are a piece of 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 piece of cardstock that I ran thru the Big Shot with the new Basket Weave EF. I used a retired Corner Notch punch on all 4 corners. Added a hole at the top. Put my bunny on with Dimensionals and stamped my sentiment which was punched out with the retired Washi Label Punch. I tied the tags on with some ribbon from my stash.

Project Details:

Stamps: Basket Bunch
Ink: Memento Black, Copic Markers
Cardstock: Soft Sky, Blushing Bride, Whisper White
Accessories: Basket Weave EF, Basket Bunch Framelits, Corner Notch Punch (retired), Washi Label Punch (retired), Cello Bags, Ribbon, Dimensionals, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

I think these treats would be great for anyone, especially if they love chocolate!
And that bunny is guaranteed to bring a smile to everyone's faces this Easter....atleast I think so!

My thoughts today....

So true for me today!

That's all for now!
Thanks for stopping by & have yourself a great day!

Petal Garden Meets Happy Birthday, Gorgeous

Hello & Happy Tuesday!

It's a snowy one here in Red Lion, PA.
We had 4 inches of snow overnight thanks to the 3rd Nor'easter in about 10-12 days!
Right now the sun is "finally" shining and the winds are whipping!
I surely hope Mother Nature is soon going to bring Spring!

Today i've got a cute card set to share.
This was another one of those card sets I sat down to make with no rhyme or reason.
Many times my customer will call out of the blue and ask for extra cards besides the ones she orders.  I now have my card rack filled with extra's just in case!

I never realized how pretty this pack of paper was until I seen a friend use it! Of course, then I had to order some for myself to make some cards and you really don't need anything to go with that paper except for a sentiment!

Card Set Details:

Stamps: Happy Birthday, Gorgeous
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Calypso Coral
Cardstock: Sweet Sugarplum, Whisper White, Petal Garden DSP
Accessories: Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

Isn't that paper pretty?
These were so fast to put together. No ribbon or bling!
Easy for mailing, too!

My thoughts today....

Definitely words to live by!

That's all for now!
Thanks for stopping by & have an amazing day!

Jelly Bean Boxes

Hello & Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a nice weekend!
My hubby is back to work today so that means I will be heading to my stamp table to work on a few more things for Easter. This is my last week to get things wrapped up!

So, today I have a treat to share using jelly beans!
I found this pack of Jelly Beans at Walmart, 5 boxes for $1.00!
I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do with them.
I ended up making a wrap for around the box and decorating it. 
The jelly beans just slide out of the wrap.

Easter Project Details:

Stamps: Digi image from Whimsie Doodles
Ink: Copic Markers
Cardstock: Melon Mambo, Elegant Eggplant, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Patterned Paper from The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby)
Cardstock: Circle Layering Framelits, Whisper White Organza Ribbon, Glue Dots, Dimensionals, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

These would be great to lay at each person's table setting for Easter dinner, don't ya think?
If there are any leftover I will be putting them on my table!

That's all for now!
Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!

Heart Happiness

Hello & Happy Friday!

Yesterday I spent all day finishing up my Spring cleaning!
Happy to say that I am done but my back & hands hurt. Some days I wish I could be 20 again!
Today Shawn & I are headed out to do some shopping at Sam's Club in Hanover then I might hit up Hobby Lobby & AC Moore while we are over that way. I need to pick up a toaster for Kelsey & Corey since they moved into their own place earlier this week. Went to visit them the other night. Their apartment is pretty nice and it suits them just perfect!

Before we head out I have a pretty set of cards to share.
I sat down one afternoon and just created these to put on my card rack for sale.
I love when I have a clear head and no orders so that I can sit and play!

Card Set Details:

Stamps: Heart Happiness, Hugs & Wishes (retired sentiment)
Ink: Calypso Coral, Versamark
Cardstock: Calypso Coral, Whisper White, Gold Foil Adhesive Back, Painted with Love DSP
Accessories: Lots to Love Framelits, Gold Embossing Powder, Classic Label Punch, Heat Gun, Gold Enamel Hearts, Gold Ribbon, Glue Dots, Mini Dimensionals, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

I think these are so pretty in real life with that gold through out the DSP.
Shawn even mentioned that he saw them on my card rack and that he liked them!
My biggest fan! He's the best! πŸ’—

My thoughts today....

That's for sure! 
Next week I will be back at it, I promise!

That's all for now!
Thanks for stopping by & have a happy Friday!

Pretty Petal Palette Card Set

Hello & Happy Thursday!

Another busy day ahead for me but a good kind of busy!
Been doing a bunch of stuff around the house trying to get my Spring cleaning done.
Today will be the last of it, I hope!

Yesterday our Nor'easter was a flop! So happy about that! We had maybe at most 2 inches of snow which melted rather quickly! Did not make me mad one bit but I know snow lovers were disappointed. It's time to bring on SPRING! 🌷🌸🌞

Last week I sat down and made a pack of cards to put on my card rack for sale.
I used the lovely Petal Palette Bundle.

I'm not usually one to use black for much unless it's Halloween but I think the Red, White & Black color combo is very striking! I love how these turned out!
I used the Basket Weave Embossing Folder on my White panel. It may be a bit hard to see but if you click on the pictures you may see it better.

Card Set Details:

Stamps: Petal Palette, Perennial Birthday
Ink: Memento Black, Copic Markers
Cardstock: Basic Black, Real Red, Whisper White
Accessories: Petals & More Thinlits, Basket Weave EF, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Oval Layering Framelits, Red Rhinestones, Dimensionals, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

My thoughts today.....

My hands have been bothering me, terribly!
I wake up during the night with pain and numbness in both hands.
This is sorta how I feel. I will push on even if I have to glue those suckers back on!

That is all now!
Thanks for stopping by & make it a great day!
