A Spring-y Hello

Good morning! We hope everyone has had a wonderful week. Fortunately, this week just seemed to fly by. Maybe because the weather has been amazing and the distractions were quite numerous (not complaining too much...It'll give us something to work on this weekend.) Anyway, a little while back, we were pleasently surprised with a package in our mailbox from our aunt. The lady is quite the talent with a sewing machine and she made us some super cute placemats:
They match our kitchen decor perfectly!! And the two little (early!) birds are so springy, too! So, as a thank-you, this is the card we made:
Unfortunately, the colors are not quite right. We wanted it to be bright and cheerful, so we used bright pink and and green, with some floral and sparkle papers. We've included some pink rhinestones, as well. The inside didn't photgraph too well, but it is accented with some of the cute printed paper, also.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Good evening! I feel like I should start with a silly pun or something, but after spending the last three days working on superhero projects, my creative juices aren't flowing tonight. However, I wanted to post a quick  little project for today (even though it's tomorrow everywhere else...)
I came across this super cute poem the other day and wanted to make a little something that with it. I printed the poem out, leaving just enough room for a lucky little leprechaun! I can't say I was totally creative with the treats, but when the poem ends with Leprechaun Kisses, what are you supposed to share with someone?!
Now that we have gotten most of our orders organized and completed, hopefully there will be a little more time for us-crafting, especially because there are so many spring-themed projects  we want to make.
Thanks for stopping by! Now it's time for bed!!

An Irish Wish!

Happy Monday! Or not. It was a tough morning to wake up, even after going to bed pretty early last night. It's just about time for a mid-afternoon nap now! Anyway, we wanted to take some time out to share a set of St. Patrick's Day cards we made for our #1 customer!
These little cuties came out so much better than planned. This middle card is what the whole 'set' looks like when it's all together. As you might be able to tell, they are little folder cards and when you pull out the insert, there's a little Irish poem, wishing the recipient lots of luck with only a little trouble. Like every cute card, the little leprechauns have googly eyes and glitter makes everything better, of course!Who wouldn't love getting this card in their mailbox?!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful afternoon!

Hairy Birthday!

Good afternoon! We hope everyone is having a fantastic Sunday so far. Apart from the whole losing an hour, but at least the sun will be up a little longer from now on. Today happens to be our brother's birthday, so today's project is the card we made for him:
We thought it was about time we got into the 'mustache' craze. Although he doesn't (or hasn't) sport a mustache, he has definitely tried to rock the beard, so we thought it was somewhat-fitting. As for the greeting, "Hairy Birthday", it was one of those sayings where I thought I was so clever, only to find other people have used it before. Oh well. The inside of the card reads, "How old are you today?" because everyone knows that after a certain age, one birthday is the same as any other and you lose track of time. Turns out he's 33 and doesn't act a day over 23.
Thanks for stopping by today!
