Sew Sweet

I am up at the crack of dawn to check out the last day of deals on  I don't need another darn thing, but a good deal always draws me in.

Dress Up Thank You

Here's another card I whipped up using some adhesive chipboard I found recently.  I'm on a roll using things I've had stashed away.  Might as well use what you have while you like them because something new will always strike your fancy!

A Sweet Thank You

I recently went through my craft supplies to get rid of some things that are just taking up space and collecting dust.  I found a few things that I decided to get crafting with and not hoard anymore.  :)  Here's one of the cards I came up with using some Cosmo Cricket paper and adhesive chipboard that I love!

Happy Birthday Kris!

It's Krista Palakiko's birthday today and a few of us are throwing her a surprise birthday blog hop. If you've come here from Jenny's blog then you are on the right path, but if you just popped in you might want to hop on over to the beginning at the Lollipop Crafts Blog. Why?  Well one lucky hopper will win a SURPRISE PRIZE.  All you need to do is hop along to each friend’s blog, leave some love, then head back to the Lollipop Crafts Blog and let them know you completed the hop.  Who knows maybe along the way some of Kris' friends might be giving away RAKS of their own, so make sure you stop and give some love to everyone.  The winner will be announced on Sunday, March 18th.  And your next stop is Karen.  If you need to get back to the master list head back to the Lollipop Crafts Blog. 

For my birthday card, I inked up Penny Black's Betsy Bluebell with her festive balloons!  She's sure ready to celebrate Kris' special day!  I used Martha Stewart's Gifts punch for the background along with some Imaginisce DP.  

Happy Birthday Kris!  I hope you are surprised and all the best wishes to you!
