Secret Sister Mailbox




Decorating these little dollar mailboxes from Target has been fun. This is one I decorated for my secret stamping sister. I had a lot of chipboard sayings, so after picking a fun decorative paper, I used the sayings to embellish the mailbox. I then filled it with York Peppermint Patties and sent it on it's way. I really wish I had bought more of these when Target had them in their dollar section. They make such cool little gifts and are fun to personalize.

Dress Card


I found this template for a dress card a few days ago and decided to make one. It's really just a matter of cutting and adding a little ribbon and a vellum skirt over the decorative paper skirt, so it was really easy to make. I did do a little stamping by adding a stamped sentiment inside. Isn't it adorable?

Mojo Monday Sketch 76 Challenge


Today I decided to participate in a card challenge over at the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge blog. It's suppose to be in the 80's today, so I went for a Springtime theme. I wanted to use my pretty Italian Florentine scrapbook paper that I recently purchased, so used the colors in it to complete the card.


The main image for the card is one of my favorites from Personal Stamp Exchange. I stamped it in black and colored it in using a small paint brush and some light pink dye ink. To finish the card I stamped the word 'enjoy' and did some tiny holes along the bottom.
