Finally, some projects....

Well, today it's very quiet...no projects to get done ASAP...just time to catch up - on my posts that is! Boy have I been slacking!!! I need to post pics to my Picasa, and here....so here are some of the things I've been working on.

Here is a pick of the round tins I made for my "peeps" for St. Patrick's Day. I purchased the tins at Target on clearance (ya) $13 for 30!! They are like $25 regular. So I punched some shamrock shapes from green patterned paper, Bazzill paper, etc. using my new Quickutz die. I included a fancy clip, some brads, and a green felt flower. I tied ribbon around it. I stamped the top with a Studio G St. Patrick's Day stamp with Papertrey's Palette ink.

Next, here is one of the Make & Takes I prepared for the all day crop last weekend. It's a Pop-Up card. I used pink, white and black Bazzill cardstock. I punched two flowers of different colors for contrast and punched 2 "shadow" butterflies. The "Friends" is from Papertrey Ink Spiral Bouquet set. The sentiment inside is printed from the computer. I used MayArts black polkadot ribbon and a button.

The remaining card kits are for sale at YMP.

Next is a Pinwheel Card that was also a Make & Take. I used My Minds Eye Confetti Sunny Days paper for the pinwheel, a large brad, a 3 1/2" wooden craft stick, embroidery thread, a round chipboard piece covered with remaining paper, sanded and inked with chalk ink, and the sentiment was from Studio G and the "wind" was from my winter stamp set from The Cat's Pajamas Poochie Xmas.

I got the ideas for both the Make & Take cards from the Splitcoast Stampers web site and altered them.

I hope you liked my cards. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you all have a wonderfull Easter Day...Spring is just around the corner!
