Chick Treat Box

I know Easter isn't for awhile but...I do have a bunch of grandkids now so I start early.  I love these little boxes from the Silhouette Store, they are by Lori Whitlock.  I sized them down so I could get 2 on a 12x12 sheet.

This is my newest little grandson, Rhett William.  I have been absent for a bit due to his birth and sickness in their family.  This last week end this little guy had to be hospitalized due to RSV at only 2 weeks old.  So this is where my priorities have been so please forgive my absence.  Thankfully he is doing better.

Kids Valentines

I know Valentines day is over but I still wanted to share these fun little cards.  I think these little critters are just so funny and cute!  They are from Lettering Delights, so quick and easy to make.  They are print and cut and then I did the same for the inside sentiment and glued them in place.  I did shrink them down so I was able to get all 4 plus the sentiments on one sheet of 12x12 paper.

SVG Cutting Files Monthly Challenge

 Time for another challenge over at SVG Cutting Files!  The theme this month is to make a "Spring Treat".  The weather here has been unbelievably warm and the other day I was out with my grandsons playing and the bees were a buzzing so I wanted to make this fun little bee.  Isn't she so cute?!  You can get her here Bee Bear.  I put her on a tag and tied it to a Honey Bear full of honey.  

Did I mention  we have beehives so we harvest our own honey, well last year was the first year, but it is so great.  The honey is so much better than what you get in the store and you can order these fun little bears online and fill them with your honey.  These are great gifts to give with a warm loaf of bread, my neighbors love it!

Mini Mailboxes

I am so far behind on my valentine treats this year...I may not even do very many which is sad I bought some of the cutest paper!!
So I made these mini mailboxes for my daughter and her room mates.  They are by Lori Whitlock from the Silhouette store.  Those tiny little envelopes and notes are from Doodlebug...LOVE them!  I just glued the envies together and put the little notes inside, they will go into the mailboxes.

Treat Bags

Sorry I haven't posted much lately!  I have been helping care for my daughter and her family.  The new baby came and then the others got a very nasty bug so we had to keep them away from the baby. Also during all of this, one of my little dogs passed away.  He was 14.5 years old so he had lived a good long life but it is still so hard to say good bye and not have him here with us.  
For my project today I am trying to make some super quick little treats for my grandkids.  The ones that have to be mailed will probably be late...oh well at least I am doing it. 
These were made with the Jaded Blossom Fancy Topper Die and stamped with the Build a Valentine stamp set from My Craft Spot.  I then added some puffy stickers from American Crafts.

Chibi Spring Bird

I think this little bird is so cute!  Annie over at SVG Cutting Files has really come up with some super cute new cut files you are going to love.  I tuned this into a shaped card which you know how I love shaped cards.  It made it into a really fun shape also.  I sized it with the shadow so it will fit into an A2 size envelope.  This little cutie will be in the store on Friday so make sure to pick him up!
