Sweet Treat

Here is a little sweet treat for a friend at work (it was her half birthday). A little chocolate goes a long way on cute, don't you think! I covered Hersey Chocolate Bars with decorative paper from Stampin' Up. A little ribbon (and some pop dots in between each candy bar) help to hold it all together. The sentiment is from "Got Treats" (Stampin' Up).

Valentine Cards

Here are the Valentine cards I made for my students this year. I found these puffy heart stickers at Meijers for $1 each. I thought it would look cute if I had a little critter holding these hearts. I used my Cricut cartridge "Create a Critter" and made different colored dinosaurs. I know they are kind of simple, but having to make so many, I didn't want to put in too much effort. I did add a sucker inside for an extra treat.

Blizzard 2011

Here in Michigan, we are in a blizzard! Everything is closed today, so it looks like a good day to create. I am tucked away in my nice, cozy studio. I have spent the last two weekends cleaning and organizing from all the holiday mess, so I am ready to get into some creating. This is not a new card (I made this for December) but it seems like a good card for today's blizzard). I love it that this card says "Peace", because right now it is very quiet and peaceful and the snow is still coming down. This stamp is from a retired set from Stampin' Up. The background was made using "Frost" and "Moonlight" Glimmer Mist. I then ran the cardstock through my bigshot using the snowflake embossing folder. I added chunky white glitter (from Stampin' Up) on the snowflake. The silver embellishment is from Joelee's. I used some of my wrinkled ribbon and a piece of silver shimmer yarn. Well, off for some coffee and creating. If you are in the Mid-West, stay safe and warm!
