Another card created using the Easter Blossoms stamp set. Adding just a little bit of white to the middle of some of the flowers with my uniball signo pen really gave them some depth and dimension. I thought this would make a nice Mother's Day card for a client who ordered one for her 87 year old mother, but without a sentiment it would be a great feminine card for any occasion.

This card was created for a client whose grand daughter was celebrating her 8th birthday. She wanted the card to coordinate with the party cup cakes which were pink with dark purple music notes. I love that by putting flower soft in the basket (which actually contains Easter eggs) makes this stamp versatile for other occasions.

I created this card with my darling mother-in-law in mind. I wanted it to be bright and sunny just like her. I liked it so much I decided to add it to this month's stamp club projects.

This is another baby shower card I created for a friend using one of my favorite (now retired) baby stamp sets "Bundled in Love." I colored the duck with copic markers.

I just got my shipment of baker's twine delivered today from www.thetwinery.com. I am so excited! I've been all over Kansas City looking for baker's twine but everywhere I've been there has only been 1 or 2 colors to choose from. The great thing about The Twinery online is that you can order sampler packs in a variety of colors at a great price. Check it out!

These are the little Valentine treat bags I made up for Ethan's kindergarten class. This year he even filled out the names and signed them himself. He is growing up so fast. I used the Daisy set (retired) for the bee and the sentiment is computer generated.

I picked up these cute spice jars at World Market in the kitchen section and they are just perfect for storing my SU buttons by color family. I love that I can see through them, not only are they attractive but I can tell immediately when I am getting low and need to order more.

I created this card as a thank you to my next door neighbor (whose nickname is Squirrel) for shoveling our drive all winter as my husband has had a back injury. The Title is computer generated and I added a faint hint of barely banana (retired) ink as a background for the squirrel to make it pop a little.

This is a Kit-Kat Candy Bar wrapped up for Valentine's Day. I first ran a 6 x 6 1/2 sheet of paper through my sizzix machine to dry emboss the heart design. I really love this cute little owl punch (new to this catalog), although I did change it up a bit. I added wings to the owl by cutting a scallop circle in half (each half is one wing) and cut small triangles out of each scallop. I also used the two-step bird punch to get the beak. The sentiment is computer generated.

I just love this Make a Monster (new in the current catalog) stamp set. There are so many different combinations and creations you can make and all with one stamp set! I got out an oldie but goodie, my aqua painter to color in my monsters, I then laid down a little sahara sand as a ground for them to stand on. I looked up this color combination (pacific point, melon mambo & old olive) in my color coach and I really love vibrant, child-like feeling it evokes. This is a great set for Mom's like me that have little boys in the house.

These are actually little cake balls dipped in melted chocolate, and THEY ARE TO DIE FOR! Check out the website for these yummy treats at www.bakerella.com or better yet purchase her book "Cake Pops" by Bakerella.
I also have to say that hands down I have the best husband in the world (for reasons to numerous to name). He melted the chocolate and decorated all of these cake pops for me (I served my first "practice round" to my stamp club). I had a full schedule that day and couldn't get to them in time. He even made the card board box carrying case to set them in to keep them upright. We are making these as a Valentine's Treat for son's class next week.
