Bunny Butt Card



I had a few bunny "butts" left over from the banner

I posted earlier in the week, so I decided to make

a card. 

Greeting by Tim Holtz.  Purple layer done with basket folder by Darice.

White oval done with square lattice folder. 

Added a little gingham bow to the bunny's neck. 

Well it is Spring, and the snow is gently falling this morning. 

Great big white, fluffy flakes. I actually like

snow this time of the season. Pretty to look at, and 

it will all melt. Shhhh don't tell my hubby I said that.

One for Each Hand


I made three cards yesterday stamping with my friend Betty. 

Background was made using Distress Oxide inks. 

The lady on the scale was stamped first, then masked

before I sponged on the ink. 

She was later colored in with pencils. 





You may see a theme going here. LOL




and the last one. Yup that is a balanced diet. 

I remember anytime my mom gave my daughter Sarah a cookie

she had to give her two so she would have one for each hand. 

Grandma's right?

Bunny Butt Banner



Okay here is something cute for Easter a Bunny Butt Banner! 

I used different sized circle punches, and a oval punch to 

create these cute little bunnies. 

The clothes pins were covered with matching pattern paper. 





Closer view of the bunnies. I mounted them on a embossed 

oval die cut, then layered that on a scallop die. Added

some ribbon on each end, and the banner was ready to hang. 

The little tails are a 1 inch pom-pom. 

You can click the image to get a closer look. 

Off to Betty's to do some stamping, and visit with her

dogs. Later I'll be heading off to the Optimist club meeting. 

Busy day!

Topper for Notepad


I love this magnetic notepad that Kathleen

made me. So clever how she did it. 





Here is a photo of just the topper. There is a slit across the bottom

that allows the topper to slide over the back of the notepad. 




Here you can see me putting the topper back on the pad. 

She added a strong magnetic strip to the back of the topper. 

There was already a magnetic at the top of the notepad. 




Back together and on my fridge. I'll try

to remember to make one. Would make a great little gift. 




Kathleen also sent me this little wax melting pot. 

Didn't have one so it was perfect for my stamping studio. 

Thanks bunches!

CD Case Swap with Kathleen



Happy Monday. 


Today I want to share a goodie box that my friend Kathleen sent to me. 

Here is the CD case that she decorated. 

So pretty. I like how she cut the little diamond shaped element, 
and layered them together before placing on the heart. 



Inside first page. 


and the next pages. Not going to post the entire case, but it is
filled with goodies! 


Wonderful pocket letter. All the projects were made using 
Spring Bough paper pack from Michael's. 


Back few of the goodies. 


I love these stickers with matching washi tape! I'm seeing
them being used with my doll stamps. 


Set of cards she made using a 6x6 One Sheet Wonder template. So
glad she sent me a copy of the template. I have lots of 6x6 paper that I 
can use to make cards using the template. 


and this card. We always include one card in our swaps with a note.
Great job Kathleen! Can't wait for the Easter swap! 
I have a few more photos of other things she sent me. I'll post tomorrow.

Altered CD Case


Some time ago my friend Kathleen sent me a plastic

CD case. We were going to alter them for a swap. 

Well we finally got to using them, and this is how I 

altered mine. 

We both used the same pack of paper from Michael's. 

Name of the paper pack is Spring Bough. 





Here is the first inside page. 

I made a template to use for the outside cover of the sleeve. 




Won't show you the whole book, but here is the next set of pages. 

After adding goodies to the pocket the book was too stuffed to close.

I had to tie a string around it so it could be wrapped and shipped. 

Of course after the goodies are taken out the case will close. 




Back cover. 

Kathleen received her book, and was thrilled with it. 

I received a box of goodies from her yesterday, and will

take pics, and post tomorrow.

Tisket a Tasket I made a Little Basket



Isn't this a cute little basket? 

Made with only a few pieces of cardstock.

For the bottom I ran the strips of cardstock with

a lattice embossing folder then sponged all the edges. 





The handle is held in place with small brads. 

Added the little bow, and rose. 

Filled with some Easter grass for now. I think

I'll put some chocolate eggs in it. 

We got a little bit of snow last night. Winter is not over!
