Chocolate Chip Cookie Anyone......

"An Easter Cookie Goody"

I just love making these flowers out of the circle punches, aren't they fun!!!
I used the Texture Plates with my Big Shot to emboss the Glassine Bag,
and stamp the tag with the cute Easter stamp set, Eggcoutrement! Finished it off with a flower made with circles punched from Melon Mambo Card stock, and tied the bow with Melon Mambo and Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon! (Also used silver brads and Silver Cording.)

"Love Bandit" Valentine Card

This will be my last Valentine post, but I couldn't resist! It was Jake's Valentine card.
I didn't get a photo of the other boys before they were packaged to mail, but since
Jake is still at home, I just got it back to take a photo! (My last year for that!)
Isn't this stamp set soooo cute! One of the stamps says "I love you more than____________"
and you fill in the blank! Mine would say Diet Coke of course!!
Anyway, have a great day! Tomorrow I will show you one of the projects we will be making at this weeks workshop, so make sure to check back, and don't forget to RSVP!!
