Purrfect Day with Balloons

This uses a mixture of stamps.  The cat is from the SU set Long Fellows; the set is from my friend Sue.  The balloons are SU Party This Way, punched with a Martha Stewart balloon punch.  The sides were punched with a stamp that I have had forever.  My daughter Aaron was the inspiration for the colors.

Valentines Day Test Tube Treats

Valentine treats in a test tube.  The scalloped circle is stamped on both sides.  The front says hugs & kisses.  The back says To: and From:.

I punched a 1/4" circle at the top of the scallop and attached it with baker's twine.

I filled the test tube with red hot candies.  Fun!

Boxing Day Box with Hershey Nougats

Boxing Day boxes.  The inside box holds 10 Hershey Nougats, each wrapped in a SU candy wrap.  The sleeve for the box just slips over the box with the nougats.  I layered red and white on the top, showing lots of boxes (presents).  A red ribbon tied in a bow finished the look -- and held the box and nougats inside the sleeve.  The idea for the box was totally cased from my friend Sue.

Valentine's Day Center Step Card Love You Much

Yes, another Valentine's Day card! 

The sides and front layers are stamped and scallop punched.  The center stamp is from SU. 

The ribbon is real red taffeta.  The taffeta has such a different look on the spool than in use.

Valentine's Day Test Tube Card

Getting ready for Valentine's Day!  I cut the card 3" by 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4" and 9/16" on either side of the center.  The cream and brown layered are ticket punched and off-centered.  The sentiment is punched with 3/4" punch and layered with a 1" punch.

The candy in the test tubes is Adam's red hots.  Fun card!
