Hey Chick Altered Egg Carton

Back with another "hey chick". This

time I used it to decorate an egg carton. 

The carton I got in the dollar bin at Target. 

Birds are colored with Prisma color pencils. 

The fence is a Spellbinder thinlit. 

The birds and fence are mounted on  designer paper. 

Side view of the carton. I used Gorgeous Grunge stamp with

Soft Suede ink to stamp the outside. Since I the acrylic block was to

large to use in tight spaces on the sides and inside box I just inked 

the stamp up and kept it in my hand to stamp. That way I could

get in the corners and sides. (please don't look at the messy desk...mad stamper at work!)

Close up view. Love this chick! 

Here is an inside view. 

The kraft colored doilies I got at JoAnn's. I added 

a smaller white doily then scrunched them up to fit in the egg cup. 

I decided not to glue them together or to the bottom of the egg carton. 

This way if the person wants to remove them they can. 

You're a good egg was stamped on the same designer paper

I used on the outside. Little chick hatching was cut then popped 

on the panel. 

I plan to fill the cups with candy. 

Very happy with how this one came out. Sad

because I only picked up one egg carton. I may

have to make a trek back to Target and see if they 

still have them. 

Busy day today! Going to go to brunch with Sarah, and Kat. 

Then we are off to see the Christmas Story house. Should be fun!

Bunny Bows

Some new clip art I made. 

I posted these on a FB page that I'm a member of. 

Lots of the members liked them, but I'm still on the fence about them. 

Made using SU bow builder punch. 

The ears were made with the small oval punch, and the inner

ears were hand cut just a bit smaller to be layered over 

the white ears. 

I used a little pom-pom for the bunny tail. 

The pink one is my favorite. 

So only a wake up till my friend Kathy arrives. 

Busy day tomorrow. I'll fill you in on that in a few days.

Hey Chick in Blues

Hey Chick! 

I colored the chicks with Prisma color pencils.

No framlits for these so the birds had to be fussy cut. 

No problem I love to hand cut stuff. Kind of 

relaxing for washing the dishes. Am I

the only one who still hand washes the dishes? 

Okay I digress. 

I embossed the pool party cardstock with a barbed wire 

embossing folder by Cuttlebug. Layered that on black then 

added to the white base card. I like these colors together. 

Going to be warmer today so I think I'll go check 

out the local craft store. Haven't been to Pat Catan's for 

awhile and I'm starting to have crafting withdrawals.

Some Tags, and Roll Ups

Received this lovely tag from Shannon. 

We were in a Julie Nutting tag swap. 

Shannon also made this doll tag. Love it! 

And goodies! I have such fun with the swaps I join. 

So my latest go to lunch is sliced low sodium turkey

breast rolls. 

I roll feta cheese and sauteed spinach up in the deli meat. 

This feta is really good, and just 70 calories per serving. 
So its still be cold here, but my friend Kat is coming for a visit soon. 
I'm sure she will bring a little sunshine with her!

Artist Trading cards Received

Just posting pics of some recent ATC 's that I have 

received. I went to Medina

yesterday morning for poll training. That

went well. I'm feeling much better about the

process now. Two of the gals I worked the polls

with at the November election were also there. 

I didn't do much the rest of the day. Was cold all day and

just couldn't get warm. I think I might be coming down with something. 

Hope not as my friend Kat is coming for a visit on her way home from PA. 

At any rate I was to cold to venture into the stamping studio to 

craft so I decided to post work that others have made. 

Hoping I'll warm up and feel well enough to 

get some crafting done today. 

Yesterday was the first day of spring and we still have snow

on the ground, but the birds are out. Skip filled the bird feeded

over the weekend, and they have been flocking to it. 

The squirrels are funny as they can't get into the feeder and

they sit below it waiting for the birds to toss them a few seeds. 

Don't feel to sorry for them, as I still feed them up on the deck.

Mailable Monday # 186

Welcome back to another mailable Monday. 

I'm a sucker for anything sewing, corset, or dressmaker themed. 

Found this single stamp this weekend while out shopping at 


The lace embossing on the side is a folder made by SU.

The buttons across the bottom is from a folder by Cuttlebug. 

Didn't put a greeting on this card. Going to leave it blank. 

Here is a photo of the stamp. 

I'll be heading out this morning to take a class at the Election office. 

They asked me to be the manager at one of the polling locations

again, so I need to go take the class. Which is a good thing because

I didn't get to do that the last time. I just got a quick overview and

had to read the materials. So doing the process hands on will be 

much better for me.

Bunny Girl

I made this cute Easter tag yesterday. 

Love how she turned out. 

Here is a closer look at the bottom of the tag. 

Made the little bunny with different punches. 

The fence is a thinlit made by Spellbinders. 

Little eggs were done with a small oval punch by SU. 

I decided not to add a bow or ribbon at the top. 

Thought that would take away from the focal point of the tag. 

I did add a stand in the back so the tag could be displayed. 

It was snowing yesterday afternoon. Winter isn't finished with us 

just yet. It does look pretty. 

Now here is a sweet treat that I have been enjoying. 

Pretty low in calories, and so satisfying when I've craving some

chocolate. I don't like the sugar free Hershey's syrup. It has

an artificial taste to it, but I do like Hershey's simply. Made with

less sugar. Since I only add 1 tsp on the yogurt its only 15 calories. 

The 1/4 cup of light and fit yogurt is 27 calories.

So that is a pretty sweet deal!
