Sorry it is a Little Late!

I guess it is better late than never.  This are a little treat bag that I did for my daughter's dance studio.  She is a teacher's helper for the younger dancers.  She love working with the little kids.  So I decided (I think it was Todd's idea) to make them for the trick or treaters.  Since we just moved into our new house and thought it would be a nice way to introduce our self to our new neighbors.  I asked around and was told that we get around 20-30 kids so I thought I was safe making 40.  We ended up with 75 kids.  So I used what we had and I lucky we had extra candy and then we used some of the treat bags I made our daughter and replaced them the next day.  So I ended up making 82 of them.
Thanks for stopping by....Let us know what you think.

At the Water's Edge

Good Evening.  I just wanted to share a quick post tonight.  This is a card that I made for my Papa's birthday.  I really have a problem when it comes to creating a card for a male.  I not sure why, but he is pretty easy to come up with something.  He spends his free time on his sailboat.  So when I found this stamp and knew I could put it too good use.  So I pulled out my stamp from Heartfelt Creations and my Copic Markers and created something special for him.   
It is hard to see in the picture, I stamped a second image and colored and trimmed out the rocks and put it up on pop dots to add dimension to the card.  Thanks for stopping by and let me know what you think.  Till next time.
