A Very Bright Easter

One of my team members (Melanie Greenfield) once told me that her favorite color was green.  She said that green complimented all colors.  She was absolutely right!  Thanks Melanie for opening my eyes to color.  I LOVE the mix of these colors… they put me in a happy mood.  =)  The sentiment is in Spanish and translates to Happy Easter.

MaggieMade Tips:  A great way to spruce up a card without spending more money on ribbon is to simulate ribbon with a with paper.  I NEVER throw away any left over paper from a project for this specific reason.  I used a brown polka dotted paper to add a little extra slice of color between the pink lime green.   It somehow blends the two colors and give it an added “pop” to the card.

Blog Candy Give-a-Way:  Originally posted on April 1st, be ensured it was not an April Fools joke.  It is the “Sprinkled Expressions” clear cling stamp set from Sale-a-Bration. The clear-mount block is not included.  All you have to do is take a look at the new Summer Smooches and leave me a comment and tell me which products I should buy.  The winner will be chosen using the random number generator.  I really do want to give this awesome stamp set away…. will you help me?

Summer Smooches Petite Purse

Isn’t this the cutest petite purse you’ve ever see!?  It is simply adorable!  It is so quick and simple to make too. Only four pieces of double-sided tape puts the purse together.  This is one of those die cuts that will be to adorably irresistable to pass up.  Don’t let its size fool you… you can put treats, jewelry, and little gifts inside.  The third picture below with it next to the bone folder gives you a visual on the actual size.
