Valentine Share

What 2 posts in one day?  I know right? Well I just had to share what I sent my Son to school with this morning! He was so excited!  I made some super easy goodies! Just a stamp, ribbon, cello bag and of course candy and Voila~ you got yourself a cute favor. Below that one is a Treat holder/Card Holder – will show you how to do that one a little later!

Valentines Snickers

Valentines Snickers close up So what do you think? To cute huh!  What I like best is how easy it was.

Can't wait til he gets home so I can find out how the kids liked them.  Next I want to show you what I made for his Teacher.

Valentines Card Treat Holder 1Here is a Treat Holder/Card Holder –

The envelope holds the 3 x 3 card and a Ghiradelli Chocolate. YUMMY!

For both projects I used all Stampin' Up! products. The Hearts a Flutter Stamp Set, Single Heart Stamp and Teeny Tiny Wishes. I LOVE that set!  Real Red/Pool Party Ink.

Well that's all for now until next time…Thanks for stopping by and as always….

Happy Valentines Day

Happy Thursday and Happy Valentines Day! Well I went to post some samples last night and completely forgot! I am so sorry! Geez to much on the brain! But I do have some more Sweet Swaps to share and right on time for Valentines Day!

V-Day SHancock
Is this not the cutest?  Super simple yet very elegant. This is a swap that I got from Sandy Hancock!

She used the Hearts a Flutter Framelits, Fashionable Hearts Framelits, Elegant Lines embossing folder, Delightful Dozen Stamp set, 3/8" White Taffeta ribbon and the Small heart punch.

How did I know all those supplies you ask? She was kind enough to put on the back.

Thanks for stopping by and will share my son's Valentines that he took to school today. So until then….

Baby Chic Valentine Card

Baby Chic ValentineGood Morning! Hope your weekend is off to an awesome start!  So far so good over here!

I have another quick share before I head on out to my sons Basketball game.  Now isn't this the cutest? I did one like this many years ago but for Easter. Which you can see HERE!

I came across it and thought how cute to make one holding a heart.  So this is what I came up with!  I've got a few more shares but will post a little later!

Love is in the air

So I just couldn’t resist sharing some more swaps. 

So what is sharing here? A few swaps I received from Marlene Salvato at our 2013 Stampin’ Up! Leadership event I went to in Orlando, Florida! 

Seriously are these just the cutest ever?  I LOVE the Little Penguin! I have another one from her that I’ll share with you all later!  I also love the lay out on the both cards. The color combo and textures on the other card are just AWESOME!

Ok, going to relax now it’s chilly and I have a quiet house! Need to finish a blanket that I’m making for my grandmother. Which you can see HERE next week.

Check back in tomorrow for some more ideas! Until then….

Thoughts of you

As mentioned earlier I would be back with another card share. Though I was going to share another Leadership Swap, I had another card in my head and had to make it. It is using the Filled with Love Set, which today is the last day to get it.  Don't have this set yet click on the Promo Link and you'll be directed to that information. If not email/call me with your order and I'd be happy to place it for you. It's a great bundle.

You Warm My Heart

I really LOVE the new DSP Love Impressions from the Occassions mini catalog. Colors are just awesome!


Ok, I should go and fix dinner now. Until tomorrow thanks for stopping by and

Happy Monday and Card Share!

I'm back! Crossing my fingers that all goes well with my son in school! So far so good. For those who are on my Newsletter, you have already read about it. But my son was home sick just about everyday except for Wednesdsay (i was feeling ill myself that day). Thursday he woke up sick yet again! Friday there was no school, but again he had a fever when he went to bed on Saturday night! UGH! Talk about frustrating, so we ended up taking him to the Dr.s yet again! BUT all is much better, just bad allergies and a bug that keeps coming and going.  Let's just say that yesterday I could tell by the afternoon that he was much better with his energy level up and Oh, the talking???? Caramba, he is much better! LOL!
