A Little Bit Of Easter

I made these quick and very easy Easter Baskets. They are small but I love that I'm able to give a little something to some very special boys. *grin*

Wish I knew how to add a pdf file to this post...if anyone reading does know how please email me with the instructions.
If you would like the instructions email me.
I used PTI paper and two gold brads. The basket is filled with Jelly Belly jelly beans and Nestle eggs...can we say YUM. *grin*

Thanks for stopping by!

For a little princess

I have a little princess who lives in another state than her Grammy and Pa~Pa so I try to send packages around the holidays. Ohhh how I miss her and would love to see her again soon.
This is the Easter Basket that I mailed out to Melanie the other day.
I needed something that wouldn't get crushed in the priority shipping box...I just added a few Jelly Belly jelly beans and some Nestle eggs. Paper and ribbon is PapertreyInk and the little chick stamp is AMuse.
Here's a link to the original tin .... Niki did a much better job than I did...but I like mine also.

Thanks for stopping by!

WaltzingMouse Stamps Blog Hop

Wow...can't believe I actually finished this card! This is my very first blog hop for WM...actually my one and only blog hop for any stamp company. *grin*
Claire was so kind to post a download of WM images for those of us who haven't ordered her stamps as of yet. Thank you, Claire!
I did purchase her Celtic Lunettes patterned digi paper and I love the ease of ordering and printing.

I decided to color the shamrock image with my SU! watercolor these! The Irish hankie that the shamrocks are wrapped was colored in a light cream to kinda replicate Irish linen. Not sure how well it shows. I chalked the edge of the oval that was cut/embossed with my Cuttlebug for just a bit of dimension.
The Irish Blessings was printed on vellum and added to the card with two gold brads. The green ribbon is PTI.
I'm quite please with how this card turned out.

Thanks for stopping by!

Family St. Patrick's Day Cards

Well the big green day is just about here and I can't wait. I'll be making an Irish Soda Bread tonight so I can have some tomorrow for breakfast. Yum!
I have brought out my Belleek and bought my shamrock plant. Can you say I'm a wee bit Irish? LOL
I'll also be watching QVC tomorrow and drool at all the Irish items and if I'm careful I will probably do a wee bit of shopping. *grin*
I have found another great stamp site...yeah! Waltzingmouse Stamps and it is in how great is that? Claire not only has some awesome stamps but she also has digi papers. I used Celtic Lunettes digi papers for my the authentic Irish look.

The stamp set is fairly new from PTI Luck of the Irish...ribbon is also PTI. Gorgeous yes?

Now Claire over at WM is having a blog hop tomorrow and if I can get my act together (and butt in gear) I will be posting another St. Patrick's Day card tomorrow.

I'd like to wish everyone a very happy St. Patrick's Day! We are all a wee bit Irish on St. Patty's day you know. *grin*

Thanks for stopping by!
