A New Post for a Rainy Saturday

Hi all,

We are trapped indoors today, so I thought I would share a couple projects. The first one is on it's way to my mom in Arizona. She is always bragging about the SUN there, but it's way too hot, and there are no green trees, I just couldn't do it. She comes here and claims she is freezing to death, lol. We just agree to disagree on where the best place is to live. Anyway, it was her birthday yesterday, so this is her card. (If I haven't mentioned it already, MARCH IS CRAZY with birthdays!!)

The background was embossed in my cuttlebug with the birds and swirls folder (that's a long story about it's journey to my house, maybe I will share sometime). I then colored it with some CTMH chalks. The flower is Doozie Daisy from Unity Stamp Co. It is the part of the card that OPENS, with a small birthday greeting inside.

I LOVE this next project. It was a birthday (again MARCH birthday) package for our friend Jeff. I covered a pillow box with some Rusty Pickle paper and then paper pieced the Unity cupcake. The cherry brad and skull ribbon are both Creative Imaginations. The cute little tag was cut out on my new CRICUT and tied on with some ikea twine.

I'm working on a cute Easter bag right now, hope to share it soon, and don't forget to keep checking back for my first ever BLOG CANDY on my birthday! (hint...I'm was born on the last day to be a Pisces!)
