Silly me, I thought I had already posted this card, but nope...didn't happen. This card is soooo cute, I wish I could claim the creativity, but the credit goes to Patty Bennett, check out her version of the card here. I did this at a recent workshop and it was a hit!

What I loved about this card is it could be a feminine or masculine card, you will see the girly version. I hope you love this as I loved making it!

This is your final installment of our team's masculine swap! I hope you got just as much out of these as I did! Masculine cards are truly the hardest set of cards for me.

Howdy! Some of the gals from my team recently, it was small, but worth it. Masculine cards seem to be the hardest to make, well for me it is. So, we decided to help each other out.

I was holding off posting some of these samples to ensure my gals got their swaps in the mail. I didn't want to ruin the surprise.

This is My Swap...

Happy Saturday! Here is part two of the Easter goodies I made this past week! Again, nothing to complex, just something fun. I knew the kiddos in Drew's class (ages range from 6mos to 18mos) needed something soft to eat, so I thought these chocolate marshmallow bunnies would be perfect. Let me tell you Drew gave his overwhelming approval!!

All I did for this is create a belly band with Certainly Celery DSP. Then used the Petal Punch with the Chocolate Chip CS. Then I punched Whisper white 1/2" Circle Punch, and glued a Mellow Moss Button with a Mini Glue Dot. I finished it off with a scrap of Whisper White Grosgrain Ribbon.

Hope, you liked this fun chocolaty surprise!!

Howdy! This weekend is my favorite time of the year, it is when we celebrate the death and resurrection of Christ! I have recently starting working part time at our church for their MDO (Mother's Day Out) program, which makes me feel like a kid again. I got so much joy out of making and taking little treats, just like I use to do in school!

What you will see over the next three days are simple little projects I did for the Teachers, Drew's Class, and my Toddler class.

First up, this is way simple, but I wanted to give Drew's teachers a little something for the work they do. So I got this little pack of marshmallow bunnies at Walmart for $1, cute huh?! All I did was take the Scallop Circle Punch and the 1 1/4" Circle Punch to create a tag. I do love our White Gel Uni-Ball pen, so I added that little detail around the scallops.

See, you don't have to spend hours on something to tell someone thanks!!
