I hope everyone is enjoying the Easter weekend.  I am still doing my nursing shifts, but have found some time to relax as well.  I made this card and Easter treats on Thursday.  The choccies are going to the staff I am working with tomorrow…shhhh…don’t tell them in advance 🙂

Firstly, the card.  Not sure it is exactly what I had in mind in the first place.  This will be going to my mum.  She has been unwell with a virus over the past few weeks, so hopefully she will be feeling better soon.  Maggie’s mobile lunches hit the road today to help her out.

I have used the stamp set called “A Good Egg” for this one and did some paper piecing.  I blinged it up with some crystal effects and dazzling diamonds glitter.

Again I have used “A Good Egg” stamp set to create a tag and punched it out with the 1 3/8 circle punch which I layered onto a Tempting Turquoise Scallop Circle.  I then added the dots with the white gel pen.

Thanks for looking and I hope you continue to receive the blessings of Easter.  Stay safe on the roads if you are out and about.

Keep Smiling and Stamping,

Spookiness

funny, but when I think of Halloween I think of the Adam’s Family theme song LOL  I promised to share these pics with you weeks ago and never got around to it, so am playing catch up yet again.  It’s like digging out the family album and looking through and reliving events.

To recap, my neighbours had a birthday party with a Halloween theme and I made a few goodies for them.

Ok, so now the scene has been set.  The deck looked magnificent with fake spider webs, spiders etc.  They don’t quite have the same effect in the photo’s as they did in real life.

The Jack-O-Lantern was in the centre of the table surrounded by all the goodies.

I made bags of popcorn and used the limited halloween stamps I had at hand to make the toppers.  The spiders are made using punches and I put some “gold” chocolate coins inside them.  The kids loved them, so that is the main thing.  I’m hoping we will actually get at least one Halloween set next year as this had become a more popular theme in Australia in recent years.

Aren’t these just so cute?  I have seen these done a lot this year in the USA/Canada and loved to make them.  I must admit it took a lot of punching to make them all.  I hope you have enjoyed going back to Halloween tonight with me. 

 

Tomorrow I have some up to date stuff to show you.  In fact I think it is time to share some new summer mini projects with you all.  Till then take care and remember….

 

Keep Smiling & Stamping,
