Birthday Wishes Party Girl

This is a new style for me and it was fun to make.

Front sentiment:  Birthday wishes just for you.

When I saw that My Creative Time had a birthday challenge by Miss Cindy, I wanted to try something different.  I went for a CAS (clean and simple) style with paper piecing and the perfect mix of stamps.

Tools used include:
My Creative Time stamps: Keepin' It Classy, It's all About You, Celebrate Good Times and Birthday Buddies
Also, Ranger archival ink in watering can, rose madder and potting soil, ribbon, paper by BasicGrey and K&Company.

Thank you for visiting. I hope you will leave a comment and follow my blog while you are here.

Good Witch Hat & Giveaway

I think this hat is for a good witch. It's all decorated in purple and dolled up with embellished details.  The sentiments make it funny.

Front sentiment: You say witch like it's a bad thing.
Inside sentiment: Stir it up.

This is another one of my Halloween projects.  It is a watercolor design with heat embossing and distress markers.  I am including this in Unity Stamp Company's September/October 2013 color challenge 8 and with their Friends With Flair projects.

Tools used include:
From Unity Stamp Co Mix-Up of Cuteness, Straight Laced and You Witch!

Thanks for visiting.  Have a wonderful day.

Too Cute To Spook Halloween Treats

Here is a set of  Halloween themed favor containers.  I made them to be more cute than spooky for the trick-or-treat kids, the mail man and my "not so little" kids.  When I make crafty projects like this, I make extra for the people who ask me "Where can I find these?" or "Can you make me some?"  

These were inspired by Miss Cheryl's Designer Color Challenge at My Creative Time.  I used most of the colors but substituted black for brown, since my project was for Halloween.  

My favorite part of this is the cute little ghost and coordinating sentiments.  They fit perfectly on these little pocket treat wraps.

Tools used include:
From My Creative Time, Stitched Button Dies, All Around Halloween, Treats for my Sweet and 3 x 3 Fancy Tri-Fold Card Die.

I look forward to your comments and hope you will follow my crafty blog while you are here.
