Cupcake Birthday - Love this Set!

I just love this set - Crazy for Cupcakes, and the new Good Morning Sunshine Designer paper. It's so versatile - it can be for a boy or girl, depending on which pattern you choose. I made this card for a little boy in David's class who is having his birthday on Feb. 20th...and David gets to go play while (I believe) his Dad and I get to go have dinner together. I can't imagine a better arrangement, can you?

Fifth Avenue Thinking of You

I just love this new stamp set...Fifth Avenue Floral...and like it paired with the Urban Garden colors, too. I used a mini library clip and can't believe I wasn't using them before...aren't they a great accent? I just hoard some of my Stampin' Up! accessories instead of using them as I should. I also used a rubon sentiment from Chit Chat to make the greeting...and a white pen to color in the...stamen...I think that's what they are called. Hard to recall elementary school, though... :)

Thank you for Colored Rubons!!

Who doesn't love this new Designer Series paper? And who doesn't love the new colorful rub-ons? Anyone? This little owl actually came with a white belly and eyes and I used my blender pen to color his eyes Saffron and his belly Kiwi...but this probably wasn't the best technique since it took forever to dry and I'm not sure its permanent. Anyone have a better idea? I'm all ears! (I thought of using crystal effects...for the permanent aspect, but since I don't have a Kiwi reinker, that won't work.)

Flowers for MOPS

For our MOPS group, I needed to bring a present in for one of the ladies...I hope she doesn't read this...and if you do, act surprised! I die cut some cute flowers and attached them to lollipop sticks and then covered a popcorn box with Bella Rose Paper. I threw in some candy bars and then added Reese's Hearts (separating the pink ones out of the bag for perfect color coordination!). I attached the ribbon in a cute fashion around the edges. I'll show my club girls this month, email me if you want close-up pics to do it yourself.

Don't forget orders now via My customers are completely spoiled - place your order from me now and I'll spoil you too!!
