Here’s the grandchildren (my two are the girls), with my brother, Gary, in the upper corner.  Now I need to make one for my mother-in-law…but I’m going to have a lot bigger garden growing inside that box!!

 

Happy Mother’s Day!!

Paper Pumpkin Steps Up!

I was so pleased with my Paper Pumpkin box this month!!  Stampin’ Up! has really stepped things up!

The box contained 5 heavy bags to decorate as we liked.  The letters & stamps were included and I just added punches to the bottom.

The stamps (stripes & dots) were different…I think they were the polymer type.  They stick amazingly well to the clear block!!  No chance of them falling off!Createwithcheryl.me PP Smile Bag

Here’s my last (& favorite) one:

Don’t you love it?!  Got the hula girl idea from Sandy Hancock.

Hair:  Round Tab XL

Head:  1″ circle

Arms:  1 1/4″ circle

Skirt:  1 3/8″ circle…fringed

Flowers:  Itty Bitty Shapes & 1/4″ circle from the owl punch

Truckin' Along

I was asked to come up with a kid’s birthday card for my Card Buffet this Sunday.  I immediately thought of one of my favorite stamp sets:  Loads of Love!  That pickup truck is so darn cute!!  If you have the Loads of Love Accessories, you can fill your truck with presents, pumpkins, puppies, etc.

I still have spaces open in the class this Sunday!  RSVP if you’d like to attend!  And if you want a special card, just ask!  I love a challenge!
