Thank you SNOW much!

I need some more thank you cards recently to try to catch up on thanking people for being so generous at Christmas and for those folks who make us meals, etc.  I had a bunch of snowman left because when I made my Christmas cards I accidentally cut my first batch of snowmen  too small so I thought this would work out great.  I just used left over Christmas paper for the cards also.  Here is a peak at two of the cards.

I used Peachy Keen snowman stamp for the face and he was cut from Doodlecharms.  I did the Thank you SNOW much! on the computer and used a Close My Heart stamp for the There's snowman like you sentiment.  Now if I can just get them mailed out!

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

Happy 5th Birthday Princess Tea Party

My oldest daughter turned 5 in early January.  She wanted to have her birthday out at like BounceU or somewhere like that but I could not believe the prices of those places.  I decided to rent a little room at our local community center and do a girly Princess Tea Party.  We had make-up, dancing, finger foods, marshmallow pops and tea cup cupcakes!  I did not get to use my Cricut for anything, I wanted to make centerpieces but things with my husband have been tough and between him and the 4 kids I just ran out of time.  Luckily my super craft friend Stephannie ( is always amazing!  She made the cutest birthday banner and the MOST adorable little purses that had a lip gloss and nail polish in them.  She is the BEST!

As you can tell from the pics pink was the theme :)  I tried to find or make candies/snacks with the pink theme in mind except for the actual food (mini sandwiches and hotdogs in crescent rolls).  The girls really seemed to enjoy the party, what can be better than make-up, dancing and lots of sugar!

The table was set for 12 princesses to have a nice tea

I found a cute idea online to use a necklace as the napkin ring.  So then I thought of course they need a ring and bracelet to go with it :)

Of course there was dancing (that mys girl in the pink-she takes her dancing very serious)

And time for make-up

And time for crafts, this is my youngest Moo Moo

Here are the cute tea cup cupcakes with little princess crowns on top,
on the right on some cute marshmallow pops I made, it was my first time
but they were easy and a big hit

My Princess had a special crown cupcake holder and princess candles

Here is my big girl giving me the candles and my little girl always helping


We did a silly pic of Ally's friend "drinking" her cupcake :)

 Well now onto getting ready for teacher appreciation day!  I am going for simple this year but still need to get it done by the week of the 27th so I better get on it!

Thanks for stopping by, have a crafty day!

Hap'bee' Birthday

My youngest niece turned 4 this week and my children were invited to lunch and bowling at their Country Club for the afternoon.  I wanted to make here a cute card and love this set from The Stamps of Life.  I do not like hand cutting out images so instead of their bee stamp I used Create a Critter to cut a cute bee for the card!  I gave her a cute Peachy Keen Princess face and an action wobble to finish her off.  The card was quick and cute!  Just what I needed.  My girls love playing with her before we gave it away :)

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