Wednesdays Card Reveal

Well Friday has come and gone and my card reveal was not posted... what can I say, sometimes family life is just too darn busy...not to mention I was sick and I pasted it along to my husband. Aren't sick husbands funny, they lay around and every once in a while they let out a sympathetic sigh and become big over sized babies. I swear there should be a sick husbands hospital that you can check their sorry butts into and they don't come out until they are 100% better. LOL

Anyways enough of that, lets get back to the cards. This first one I got the idea from a fellow CSL's secret sister gift, you can view it here, I just thought it was so pretty. Enjoy!

Teacher's Love for Pistachios

It was my daughter's teachers birthday a few weeks ago and she loves pistachios. I wanted to make her something cute and bright that she could sit on her desk to hold her favorite snack. Play Date DSP was perfect to use for this project... don't you think?

I shot a few different angles.

Check out the little pencil... cute touch... I thought.

All gifts must have a coordinating gift bag.

Thanks for stoping by today. We are enjoying a family camping trip to the beach this weekend, should be lots of fun. Happy Stamping everyone!

Workshop Ready!

I have not booked a workshop in soooo long that I finally asked a friend of mine if she'd be willing to host one for me. Of course she said "YES". I as excited and nervous at the same time. I wanted to make the workshop extra special so I made so water bottle treat holders, that held a Chrystal Light flavor packet and a pillow box filled with little sweets for each attendee. All were made with the NEW Fabulous Owl punch and Play Date DSP. Unfortunately the workshop didn't happen... most invited guests were on there last weekend getaways before school started. We are in the works of re-scheduling.

Paper: Real Red, Tempting Turquiose, So Saffron, Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Play Date DSP and Whisper White

Punches: Two-Step Owl, Scallop Circle

Accessories: Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon

Dies: Pillow Box
