Bunny Bags

No stamping, but I DID use punches to create these adorable little Easter treat bags for my nephews. We are going over to dye eggs with them later today. I think I'll save them until tomorrow, though, when we have Easter dinner with them too.

What do you think? I have seen many others make bunnies with the Top Note die and punches, so I did not create this idea. I used it as a topper on a little lunch bag, and I added the bunny tail! Not sure what will go inside, but rest assured, it will be something yummy!!

Have a beautiful weekend!

Two Days in a ROW!!!

I hope I can keep this up!!! It is good to have a routine, and to be able to fit some creativity into each day! Even though my dh did not care too much for yesterday's card (which is weird, because he typically loves all my cards) I did another card with the same colors. I used Julee's Mojo Monday sketch. I left off the trio of embellishments because I didn't have room. Oh well! I felt if I had tried to squeeze them in it would have looked too busy. I already am not sure if I love it or not...

I do love the colors and the stamps, but I think I used too much pattern. Oh well. I'm getting slowly back into the creative process...

Edited to add: I am looking at the Mojo Monday blog and see that my card looks an awful lot like Mary Fish's. Well, hers is MUCH nicer than mine. I feel awful, because I didn't copy it, but wanted to use this stamp set again, and now it looks like I copied her!! I didn't even see her card until today! I'm going to have to try another one, now, that is ALL my OWN!!! :-)

Bad Blogger, No Mojo

Well, I have not been able to stamp for quite some time. I just haven't had it in me. Have you ever had that happen before? Today I decided enough was enough. I grabbed the current sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You and I just started working. I've been dying to try the sewing on pleated ribbon look I've been seeing so much lately. I have no idea if this works or not, but AT LEAST I STAMPED SOMETHING!!! :-) Yay me!!!

I used Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip and Riding Hood Red as my color combo, with various patterned paper in those colors. The stamp set is "Great Friend" and is in the current mini. If you'd like more info on any of the products I used or would like to order them, please drop me a line at stampmaniac at gmail dot com!

Earlier today while trying to get the little guy to help me clean the room up (read this as Mom was crawling all over the floor, singing "clean up, clean up, everybody clean up," and putting a zillion mega-blocks and books away) this is what the smart little one decided to do:

He had a great view of his mom crawling all over the room, didn't he? :-) And luckily, he let me snap a pic before he moved.
