Last post for March . . .

Okay . . . here's your last chance to enter into the March Blog Candy drawing! If you follow, you get another entry too!

I needed to make a few birthday cards, for April. The one on the left is from the Botanical Blooms stamp set (Sale-A-Bration) and the one on the right is from the Vases in Vogue stamp set (retired). I'm going to be sending our Easter cards out this weekend, so everyone gets 'em in time! FUN! There's a new Stampin' Up! promotion starting tomorrow . . . I'll fill you in, when I announce the March winner!

I just have to share something funny! Jenny's husband, Scott (you remember, the great chef?),
is going to some NASCAR race this weekend. This left Jenny as a weekend widow. I offered for Jenny to spend the night over here on Friday night and then we have our Punch class at Jeri's on Saturday morning. After Jeri's class, we had planned on coming back to my house and scrapbooking for awhile, so I thought it worked out perfectly! Oh so much girl time! Anyway . . . Jenny wanted to make Scott a little jealous and said, "I'm going to be sleeping with another man on Friday night!" He said, "Are you planning on sleeping with Nathan or Patrick?" He was onto her! (giggling) I just had to share, I just love it when he stumps her like that! :o)

We have Cousin Night, at Theresa's house, on Saturday night too! I'm just gonna be pooped . . . crafting and a date night with my hubby, all in one weekend?! Better start resting up now! :o)

I made this little explosion box . . . I CASE'd (AKA: scraplifted) it from Dawn's Stamin' Thoughts. Dawn does little video clips 2-3 times a week. I love her little "Hi Stampers . . ." at the beginning and her "Okay, Bye" at the end! Too cute! Dawn mentions that the lid is a tight fit and she's not kidding! If you want a bit looser lid, add maybe 1/8" to the lid. We're going to give this to Terry's Mom, for Easter. I figured that we could put some little pictures of the boys inside and have them write little "love notes" on the parts that fold in. Didn't it come out cute?

Have a great day . . . thanks for stopping by my craft room!


  1. I really like your birthday cards. The little box is a really cute idea too but it looks like alot of work. Wow! It sounds like you have a full weekend ahead of you. You better rest up all week. LOL I know you and Jeni will have a great time. I liked Scott's comeback.

  2. As always your cards are beautiful. And the box is so cute! I hope you have a great time with Jenny. That sounds like so much fun!

  3. You will have a lot of fun with Jenny on Friday night. She might be a little tired with working all day! Make her a white russian or maybe a couple..she loves those and it will wake her up a little bit! Or who knows, it might make her pass out!!!!Have fun at your punch class! Can't wait to see what creative things Jeri comes up with. Tell the boys to have fun with their Aunt Jenny!!!
