St. Patrick;s Day

Well - I had seen another friend at our last crop night at Angela McKay's make the head of this leprechaun and of course the voices have been telling me to try it.    I  made a clown for the last challenge  and thought a leprechaun would look quite cute as well.    It was very tricky getting in the colors for The Royalty Challenge  but then I thought of adding the shamrock ballon in Pixie pink and it worked.  Then I got to thinking it could also be entered in the Crazy 4 Challenges as well a there are three textures.

Boy's Birthday

This cute little clown is going to be a birthday card for one of my Grade one boys.   I got the idea for him from Jacquie Topa.   Her clown is made entirely from punches and is in a great little  tuxedo.   I decided to use the die cuts for the bears clothes instead - not quite done report cards and needed a quick little diversion!

Valentine's Day

Finally .....a decent picture.     This is my entry for this week's Stampin' Royalty Challenge.  Rich Razzleberry and Melon Mambo - the sentiment is embossed with white embossing powder.

What a lovely treat!

For the last three or more years at work we have picked names to be someone's secret buddy at work the week before Valentine's Day.   For five days we sneak around (my favorite part) and leave things for each other.   Some people make other people lunches, or we just leave cute little things in each other's mailboxes.
My buddy left me really neat things everyday and one day left this whole package of card making things.  It sure put a big smile on my face!  (and it covered the report card piles on my desk!)

Definately Different!

Well....I didn't think I would have time to enter anything because of  student teacher conferences this week, but......I was baking this morning and .....I just wondered if I could stamp on cookies!   I used the Baroque Motifs stamp set and it made a very pretty pattern on these cookies......and I don't have to put icing on them.  They are quite tasty and pretty!  You just have to stick the stamps in flour before you stamp on the cookies or else the dough really sticks to the stamps.
