Shamrockin’ Good Luck

Top ‘o the Friday to ya! Happy March 17th – Saint Patrick’s Day – Friday – whatever it is to you!

I did made little treats for my coworkers. I also decided to create a card to go with them. A dear coworker and friend is leaving and I wanted to wish her well.

Color Throwdown also had great colors that just fit my needs perfectly too! Here are there challenge colors –

Very festive I’d say.

And, from the looks of my card, their picture inspired me too!

Fun and festive!

I followed a tutorial here for the shamrock/clovers. It was pretty easy once I got started.

The card, of course was my own design! I used two greens that really clash, Cucumber Crush and Emerald Envy. I liked how the gold and black offset them in this card.

What do you think? Fun? Festive? I’d love to hear from you!

Simple Santa-Tizer

Last weekend I participated in a craft show at a local winery! We had lots of fun despite the weather being awfully rainy and cold!

One of the adorable gifts I made were these –

Little hand sanitizer called ‘Santa Tizers’!!!! Why? Well, because they looked like little santa suits!

I used the retired Oval Punch to hold them in place on the inside. Worked like a charm!

I did really well with these. They were just too cute! And a snap to make! Great for secret santa or little office gifts!

Sunny Beach Day Fun

I don’t know about where you’re at, but, here, it’s  H O T  !!! Not only is the temperature up there, at 93, it’s also 100% humidity! And, the feels like temp…..I won’t even go there.

As a matter of fact, I’m not going anywhere – too hot. Staying indoors.

I decided why not cool off with a card –

Well, how about project? I also made some candy treats and a tag for the mini beach bag!

The card is one of those nifty Double Z-Folds I’ve been seeing all around! See how it just ‘P O P S’ out there?

Here is a top view to really see it.

Creating is a great way to get through the hot summer days! Don’t you agree?

I’d love to read your comments about this nifty cool project!

Nice huh? It’s really the same idea as the nugget holder trays that I’ve made before.

I cut each one, stamped them and then scored them. Easy. Easy.

Assembly went quick too.

I had this cute little red plastic berry basket that held all of these without a problem. It just added to the patriotic feel!

I worked the early shift and was able to leave these for everyone to brighten their day. I got several comments to how they were pleased to find them!

It just goes to show you, go create something for someone and make their day!!

Happy Fourth –

Tags!!! How cool is this idea?

Well, I thought pretty cool. I came up with this nifty little number –

libbystamps, stampin up, Swirly Scribbles Thinlits, Silver Metallic Thread, Stars Framelits, SwWWC74, Thoughtful Banners, Duet Banner, Lucky Stars EF, July 4

It a card with a tag in the front pocket!!

…..and, it can be removed too! Pretty snazzy tag all by itself!!

Here are few more views with the tag inserted. I love the am-scram ribbon at the top!! Some is retired ribbon, but it all worked so well for this.

Kind of just by chance that the silver foil die cut fits over the bottom panel. I love that look. The star was raised so it really had no choice.

Quick post as I’m running around getting things together.

I am having my annual Open House this Sunday. I’ll be doing the usual, catalog viewing, scavenger hunt, make’n takes and acquiring new homes for my retired items.

Happy Sinterklaas

Yea, I’m not Dutch either. But, my husband is and we sort of honor this tradition with the chocolate letters.

We had already mailed our girls letters. I picked these up for a few coworkers. I made a decorative tag. They will be surprised.

The wooden shoe die I got last year in Holland at a wonderful craft show that featured tons of card making supplies!  

I think it’s just fun!
