Gorgeous Grunge is my new favorite stamp set. This card was for my Spotlight Class featuring Perfect Pennants this month. If you a trend watcher, you may have noticed that the trend to use no or little DSP on cards is hot right now. I love DSP and most of the time that is where I draw my color palette from when designing a card but I am also liking this CAS look as well.

Sorry for the glare on my photo, it is hard to photograph through cellophane. I bought these rainbow Twizzlers to make a treat for St Patrick's Day but then didn't have a bag that would fit all six colors. So, I cut them into thirds and packaged them in these bags. I tried several bag toppers but these are the ones I like best.
I also found a larger bag in my stash so I added a little gold to some of them. These will probably be the ones Sadie takes to her friends at school for St. Patrick's Day.

I don't usually make very much for St. Patrick's Day but a lot of people celebrate the holiday in a big way. A friend asked if I would come up with a non candy treat for her kids to give to their friends. Who doesn't like bubbles! I love to take bubbles to the beach and sit on the balcony and watch the wind blow them away, the beach sounds so good on this cold, cold day. I saw several versions of the leprechaun on Pinterest and put them all together to come up with my own. The pot of gold is the same one I did in punch class once for Halloween with some gold added.
These got me motivated so I made some treats with candy as well and will share those tomorrow.

I have to admit I did not enjoy Geometry in High School but absolutely loved Algebra. But this Geometrical stamp set is very cute and I have a few ideas for other projects. The small dots are made with the end of a new pencil eraser.

This sentiment says it all, life is never perfect but you can always find something that makes it wonderful. My "wonderful" today is in the picture below.
This is my Dalton boy, love him so much! I can't ever capture a photo of him, he is in a camera shy phase but I caught him off guard this morning.

I love coloring and cutting out images especially when I have something on my mind. I have been thinking about my SIL Jeannie who passed away recently. She and I were very close until we moved away and didn't get to see each very often. I am going to miss her, she was a wonderful Christian lady who was always giving of herself in some way. She was a Special Needs Teacher and I am sure she is in Heaven loving on God's special little ones. RIP sweet Jeannie and thank you for your shining example!

This is one of the cards we made at Technique class, our technique was folds. This fold has a little pop up section where I added the scalloped circle and the cupcake. To hold the top flap down we added a punched cupcake on a dimensional.
