Hey, pumpkin!


Hey, Pumpkin!! Long Time, No Post!!

So sorry about that – I have just not been feeling up to my crafty self!! I am trying but if you want the truth – I am struggling!!

This cute chocolate treat box was made a few weeks ago for the retreat I went on – I have taken so long to post it because I wanted to do a tutorial of how easy the little box is to make – BUT that will have to come a little later!!

For now here is another pic of this fun treat box that holds 3 Ghirardelli Chocolates


I will be back when I can with a tutorial for how this cute simple chocolate box was made!!

Until then, please understand why I am not commenting on blogs very quickly or doing much of anything lately – I think I have lost the “Spring in my Step”! Hopefully I will find it again soon!!

Thanks for coming by for a visit!!

Pinterest Inspired

I know I have been gone for awhile and I have been missing from commenting on your blogs – So sorry about that!!

I am at a Scrapbooking Retreat and we are having a card exchange so I made this card to trade!!


It was inspired by a pin on Pinterest  – here is the link

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to tell me what you think of my card!!!

Hello There!!

Thought I would pop in and share a card that I started over a year ago and finally finished up a couple of weekends ago!!

The reason this card took so long is that I made 16 of them and as you can see there is a fair bit of coloring!! Well, I did all that coloring with watercolor pencils and then used a watercolor blender pen to finish them off.  The thing is, that along with the cards I stamped this border on the envelopes too!! So I had 32 of these borders to color!!  Talk about biting off more than I could chew – but alas, a year later they are done and here is the finished product!!

floral hello

Used the Large polka dot embossing folder from Stampin’ Up! and then took my corner chomper to the lower corners and voila – my card is done!!  Those of you who know me or even if you just look at the title of my blog – then you can guess which part of this border was my favorite to color!!
