Love my new concord and 9th stamp set! Perfect for these treats!

God Bless

I have been successful with my first Silouette Vinyl project!
I have been a bit nervous about trying it but now that the first project is complete I am anxious to try more. I bought the glass cutting board and the words were in my Silouette library. I purchased some adhesive vinyl and here is the outcome.
The vinyl is adhered to the underside of the cutting board so as you won't cut into it when using. It will have to be handwashed or the recipient may just want to use as decor.

Oh Sheep!

It took me a while to like this sheep in the Go Hog Wild set...but now after using it a bit more I think he is pretty cute.  Fun card Sylvia!

Easter sweetness

I made these pretty flower treats for Easter dinner yesterday. It's a square pretzel with a melted Hershey hugs kiss and then you arrange your m & m's to create your flowers. Pop them in the fridge or freezer for a few minutes and the chocolate sets back yummy!

I love this little bunny that was cut from my Silouette! He is layered up for dimension and a bow is the finishing touch. Happy Easter everyone!

Go Hog Wild!

I love how fun this card is. It is called a peek-a-boo card because when you open it up you get a surprise! This Go Hog Wild set from amuse studio's March collection is very popular! It can be used for just about any occasion! It won't be available much longer so be sure to visit my webstoreto get yours before they are gone!

Inside of the card...see the piggy peeking cute!

My card for Stamp Club was inspired by this beauty Sylvia made. I did not have the grow stamp set from the February collection so I used the flowers from crazy friends in the March Collection.
I mixed it up a bit and embossed the happy birthday. I think the sentiment stands out a bit more.

My version of Sylvia's card idea. So pretty...thanks Sylvia!

Perk Up

We made this cute treat at Sylvia's card class last week. Perfect for all your coffee drinking friends.
We stamped the brown bag using the woodgrain background stamp from amuse. Then we stamped and cut out the coffee cup, added our sentiment and some twine and you have the perfect treat!
Inside is a single serve of starkbucks coffee, a mini Hershey chocolate bar, and a biscotti.

Nothin' but net!

I will be posting pictures of stamp club tomorrow but in honor of March Madness I had to put up pictures of the post party fun! Casey was asked to make favors for a high school girls basketball team's sport banquet...and we got in on the fun! 

Here are Casey and Shari adding netting to these pails to make them look like basketball hoops...a work in progress! We each were assigned a task in the assembly line. Karen was benched but will appear back in the game next month!

A time-out was called for a selfie!

Colleen...head in the game!

We came out with a win...names and numbers of players will be added and baskets filled with goodies for the team just in time for post party fun at the banquet!

ON A SAD NOTE: disappointing loss for our beloved Xavier Musketeers in last nights buzzer beater basket by sweet 16 this year! Thanks for a great ride Muskies!

We'll be back tomorrow with hilights from Stamp Club!

Easter fun

Made these fun Easter treats at Sylvia's last week. We used a 1 and 3/8 punch for the lip balm. Undo the lip balm and place through the punched circle and put it back together. Clever idea...thanks so much Sylvia!

Thank you

Even though it is still basketball season...March madness is my season is upon us!!
A friend asked me to make her some than you notes. She and her 90 year old mother went to Arizona for Reds spring training and she would like to send a thank you note to some of the Reds players who took time to autograph and pose for a photo. How great is that?! 

Here they are all packaged up!

Lucky ladies!

Casey and her mom made 35 of these treats for the gals on the bowling league. How cute are these Hershey nuggets wrapped with Washi tape from amuse studio's February collection?! Then they stamped a tag and added a shamrock cut from the matching die. Great job ladies! The gals are going to love them!
