Get Well Kyra and an Easter Tag

I recently purchased this digi called Sick Lily from Pink Cat Studio so that Nina (dd) could make a get-well card for her friend Kyra. I love PCS images and they've really expanded their line of digis, so hop on over there and grab some!!
I was just using up some of my DP scraps and came up with this card.

Also, i needed to make quick tags for these candles i made for dd's teacher and bus driver.
I used the Terrific Tulips set from Stampin Up to make the chick, and the HAPPY EASTER from the All Year Cheer set, also from SU!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!!

My First OCS

This month was the first time i accidentally joined an OCS given by Teri. I say accidentally because i didn't know that when i left a comment, it automatically put me on the OCS list. But, it was the best thing ever and i met a sweet lady - DORI TSUKAMOTO =) This was her 3rd swap. I sent her the Billy Card from PCS and she sent me the easel card pictured above - VERY CUTE! This OCS thing is pretty fun as you get the opportunity to meet such creative people!
Thank you Teri for including me, it was a great experience!

Spring is Here!

Aaaccccchhhhoooo! Spring is here! It actually came early this year in WA, but no complaints here! It's been beautiful!
Today was my son's last day of Pre-school before Spring Break, so i made these SUPER EASY gifts for his teacher to celebrate the arrival of Spring and soon, Easter :)
These are horrible pictures as you can't really see the project, but it's just a simple vanilla candle wrapped with a strip of cardstock and dp, topped off with Prima Silk Flowers and a brad in the middle to hold it all together =) I threw in some Hershey Chocolate Eggs, tied the celo bag with Pink Gingham ribbon, green ric-rac, and made the tag from the Easter Egg Chicks digital image from Pink Cat Studios. Voila! Easy peasy Lemon Squeezee!!
Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY SPRING =)
