Girl's Day In...

The weekend is nearly here - wahoo! Hope you have some fun plans.  It's supposed to get bitter cold here again, so I don't know what we will attempt to do.  Sigh...mother nature is really mad at us!

So, between our trip to Germany, and all of the many snowy days that we've been cooped up, my friend Shirley and I decided that we would get together on Wednesday and create some things.

I'll just make this short!  Here's what we made:

Isn't this bunny box the cutest thing ever?  Amuse Studio has this fabulous box die.  Perfect for 2 Ghirardelli candies, a box of Tic Tacs, handful of loose candy, a few tubes of Chapstick, etc.  The papers are Amuse Studio, as well. This was fun AND yummy!  Thanks, Shirley!

This was a pattern that Angie at 'My Chic 'n Scratch' was showcasing one day last week.  We used the bunny stamp (sorry, can't remember whose it is!), the center box is Neat & Tangled Stamps and sequins, and the Cardinal is Close to My Heart.  They hold two candy nuggets perfectly!

We also played with the box card again.  Ha ha...if you look closely, you will see that my DP on the bottom front is glued on sideways!  Oops!  Anyway, this one is a hodge podge of dies, bling, punches, and patterned papers. 

This stamp is one of the new releases at Stampin'Up! this spring.  Isn't it pretty?  The sentiment is actually a part of the stamp.  The fun paper is a new patterned paper from Amuse Studio.

Here's a side view....

Then we created the fun and cheerful Easter card.  Again, I'm not sure who the stamp vendor is - sorry! Thanks, Shirley for another fun project!

Here's the inside view...

This is another Stampin'Up! new release stamp.  SO pretty!  I love tulips, and keep hoping to see the real thing popping up soon!

That's all I have for today!  We had a really good day - drank hot tea, got lots of doggie kisses (and a bruise or two :)
and chatted for HOURS!  Long overdue, and I'm already looking forward to the next session.
Great therapy!

Thanks for stopping by!

  11. Oh my, you ladies were busy! What beautiful and fun cretions! It's always so much fun to craft with buddies. In my case though, we tend to talk, eat, look at each other's new "toys" and not a lot of crafting gets done by the end of the day :-)
