Hello all. I had seen this idea on Pinterest a few weeks or so ago and knew I had to try it but needed the right occasion.  My daughters Pre-K class was hosting (along with the K class) Teacher Appreciation Breakfast/Lunch this week and we were doing a Fall theme so I knew these would be a perfect little treat.  You just use nutter butters (the small round ones that come in a bag), Hershey kisses, mini chocolate chips and a little peanut butter for "glue" (the original Pinterest post says to use melted chocolate but I thought the peanut butter worked just fine-  I also use the technique of decorating a paper plate with a ribbon but since the plate is white and the ribbon is white it is hard to tell but I did use some fall themed ribbons :)

Here are my acorns:

I used a stamp set from The Stamps of Life called Raccoon2love.  It was perfect for these cute little acorns :)  I hope the teachers enjoyed the little snacks.  I am planning to make some for my work later this week or next week.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a crafty day!

Simple Boy Baseball Birthday Card

My younger son (9) has a birthday celebration after school today because there is no school tomorrow.  This morning around 7am I realized we had no card or gift...YIKES!  Luckily it is my work from home day so I can run out at lunch and get something.  I also had time to make a QUICK card.  Did not even use my Cricut!  Just my computer for the sentiment (printed right onto red card stock), some baseball stickers that I already had leftover from another project and my white gelly roll pen!  Super easy.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a craft day!

Happy 5th Birthday Little Dancer

My daughters are going to a 5th birthday party this weekend for our neighbor who also happened to be in ballet with my older (4) daughter. I knew right away I wanted to use the Twinkle Toes cartridge.  This little ballerina is just too cute!  I have to make this same card for my little ballerina when she turns 5 this January!

I used Twinkle Toes for the ballerina and Art Philosophy for the card base (I welded the two shapes together to make a card, the cut it a little smaller and cut in the middle for the patterned paper).  I used Peachy Keen Princes Faces for the face and I used My Creative Time for the All Around birthday stamp.  I used an Action Wobble to make my little dancer dance!  I used my white gelly roll pen to add the faux stitching accents.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a crafty day!
