Good Morning friends! I hope that you are enjoying your weekend and taking advantage of the beautiful weather we had yesterday here in California. I wanted to share with you today a birthday gift that I made for one of my good friends Jennifer! The tote was inspired by my cousin Niki, she made me one for my birthday, I don't know if it was here original creation or one that she cased, you can see her version and other creations by clicking here she's pretty taltented if I don't say so myself! The card is a 3x3 and fits perfectly in the tote with plenty of room to spare so I added a gift card and some truffles to complete my gift. You may not be able to see the detail of the leaves in my photo but I crimped the leaves to add texture you can see it a better in the 2nd photo shown. I really like how this gift set turned out and the color combo that came together in the end, what about you?

Paper: Rose Red, Whisper White, Sweet Pea DSP
Stamp Set: Well Scripted {mini Occasions}
Ink: Rose Red

Good morning friends, I hope that you enjoyed your weekend. I enjoyed mine but it certainly goes by fast doesn't it. Today's post was a favor that I made for a class that my cousin and I recently had together. When I made these "thank yous" I wanted to make them cheery and bright, I hope that I achieved that goal. I got the idea from a blog that I frequent well let's be honest it's a blog that I stalk, Inking Idaho by Becky Roberts. I love her blog she has a lot of creative ideas and she is one of many that keep me inspired. By clicking here you can view her original design. The bag that these little goodies are stored in are Wilton's pretzel bags and the goodies in this bag are york peppermint patties mmmm yummy! I do have to admit not all of the yorks made it into the bags =D!! Thanks for stopping by and let me know what you think? Thanks again Becky R. for the wonderful idea!

Good Morning my creative friends. Boy is it a chilly windy mess out there today here in California. The perfect day to stay in and create. Hopefully I get to do that today we will see if my 2 year old allows for that. LOL =D! My son was invited to a birthday party this past weekend and it was a lot of fun and this is the card that accompanied Jack's gift. I really love the colors from this DSP not to mention I love my birthday bot! I wish that I can say that I came up with this layout all by myself but truth be told I was inspired yet again from Mary Fish, some of you may know that I stalk her blog, she is such a inspiration for me! I kept the layout exactly the same only changing colors and DSP to make it work for me. Click here to see Mary's version of the card. Thanks for stopping by and if your here in California be safe out on those roads and try and stay dry!
