Phew, What a week!

Now that my first week of school is ovah, I need to get back into blogging action! I have so much to share with you that has been building up on my desktop. But first, I must share my first card that I received from my Big Sis today in the mail. I also got some goodies-a monkey stamp and a mounting block. This stamp is just adorable and can't wait to play with it. Don't you just love this card?!?



Next, I will share with you some of the Thank You cards I sent out for the holidays. This card was sent to my SS for delivering me such a fantastic gift. I started with a piece of green Bazzil cardstock that measured 4 1/4 x 4 1/2. I had just a bit of this leftover Christmas paper so I added a piece along the bottom to break the card up. Next, I stamped the little Birdie on a piece of basic white and colored him in with my sharpies. I scalloped the edges and then layered it on a piece of tan. As an added touch, I tied a knot with this cute stripped ribbon and added to the image. My scallops got a little funky in that spot so I just added the ribbon to cover it up :D Along the top I wrote A Lil Birdy Told Me and the inside reads That You Were A Great Secret Santa.

To keep this post fairly short, I will just show the cute treat box I made for Valentines Day. I just loved this treat box tutorial from SCS so I just had to give it a try. I went with an 8x8 size treat box and instead of adding patterned paper, I just added heart die-cuts and scalloped the edges. I love the scallops along the edges!

Mahalo for stopping by!

I love your card from your Big Sis! I've never seen those two stamp critters hugging before: how adorable an idea! Your birdy thank you is such a great card too. Perfect artistic simplicity. Love the layout and how you've done his tail. That treat box looks like so much fun. Makes me want to make boxes, but I have to write an essay, sigghhhhhhh.... ;0) Mel
