All Dressed Up! frame lit favor


A friend is hostessing a bridal shower and we were talking about favors.  This one is quick and easy and of course is supported with a little chocolate.  We made it at camp this month too.  Oh, and the little purse is made with the Hearts a Flutter framelits.  Gotta love two sided paper!

Stampin' Up! Best of 25 Birthday set


We took a technique that I saw at Stampin' Up! Regional and added a little birthday wish.  Everyone at camps card looked a little different, but that's ok.  Happy Birthday Cupcake :)

When Get Well isn't what you want, it's Feel Better and a little funny


I saw this chicken with the Designer Series paper wrapped around a can of soup.  It was darling and what a fun way to make someone Feel Better!
