Life's Surprises!

Gotta love Flash Floods....we just experienced one today that whipped through our house! (Thanks to Hay Creek) My craft room is now scattered about and it will be some time before we get our basement back to no stampin' surprises from me for awhile.

Heartfelt Sympathy

This post has taken me a week to get up as I was having editing software problems and couldn't get my pictures to upload, sorry. I made this card for a dear "Stamping" friend, Lucille who passed away last week. She was a wonderful person and I'm so glad I got to know her. She will be greatly missed!

Birthday Treat

Today my father in law turns today Aiden & Adison helped me make up this little gag gift. (Ashton my oldest felt bad that she didn't get to help so she requested to hold it up for the picture.)The twins had a blast counting out all 60 suckers and poking them into the foam. After it was too late I figured out my container was too big so I added the curling ribbon. (Still think it works) I totally fell in love with the new Rockabilly Specialty Designer is sooo cool! It makes the tin!!!

Project Supplies: 60 Suckers, Dollar Tree Tin, Rockabilly Specialty Designer Paper (Covered tin with) and Cricut (Lettering)

Here is the list of stamp sets that are available to order starting today from the new Occasions Mini Catalog. This is the first time ever, that it has been opened up to customers the same time as the demonstrators. These will make super cute Easter projects. I can't wait to get them! I added a link for the new Occasions Mini Catalog.

Today I got a chance to play with my "New" Bind it all from Zutter, Big Shot and a new favorite Stamp Set "Cheep Talk". I started working on Hannah's 21st Birthday gift. I found this super cute tin birthday present box at Hobby Lobby and thought it would make a great gift. So, I made her a post it note holder and a pillow box filled with candy. I plan on adding some more goodies this week along with a gift card holder....I'll keep you posted on how it turns out. Also made a couple cards to share. Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
