We leave today for vacation - seriously, have you ever noticed how much work it is to get ready to GO on vacation? Sheesh - I'm tired and we haven't left the house!! Packing for myself and 3 kids (thank goodness DH can handle himself) is torture...particularly when you have a pre-tweener. LOL
I've had these treats done since Sunday night, but I've had other orders that had to be done before we left, so I finished those up last night and am finally getting a chance to post these. Did I mention when I entered my craft room today I saw our youngest daughter had made a beautiful treat for me and glued it to my desk with my E*X*T*R*A sticky glue??? Nice!!!
Then I find embossing powder scattered here and there, but hey, the sign is great. THEN I begin using my copic markers on a card I'm doing and I uncap my colorless blending copic and the majority of the brush end is now BLUE...so much for colorless! Thank goodness, I was able to work the blue out...but man, oh man. Due to their extra creativity, we've set some limits in my craft room - we had limits, but I guess they decided an extra special treat (and a tiny bit of exploring) would be a nice thing for mom...NOT!!!
OK, seriously, I'm done whining; on to some fun pictures!! The little criss-cross treat basket is 2 inches wide and holds 3 Reese's Peanut Butter eggs - ooooo, YUMMY! The other treat opens up to a little window which shows 1 Reese's Peanut Butter egg peeking through.
The criss-cross basket is a tutorial from Paper Smiles, she does outstanding work; be sure to visit her blog and leave her some love.
The other item is a Peek-A-Boo treat by Beate at Splitcoaststampers; check it out too if you're looking for a neat little treat.
Isn't that little chick adorable? She's from Melanie Muenchinger's "Just So Hoppy" set; colored with Copics. I used the black Spica Glitter Pen for her lashes and her eyes; she's extra sparkly!
OK, on to my next post before I sign off for a week or so. Have a superb week and may your Easter be a special blessing to you and your loved ones.
Thanks for peeking in - you KNOW you're one of my favorite peeps!!! ~M.
