You make me happy when skies are gray

Just a few days left to order your Sale-a-bration FREE items, including this set! Sale-a-bration ends on Monday, March 31. 

I had seen this technique all over Pinterest and decided to give it a try. I used the Starburst Framelits to cut a mask, then a piece of light chipboard to make my "rays." I sponged with Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, and a bit of Tangerine Tango. The clouds are made from two different products because I wanted different sized clouds. :-) The smaller ones are from the Cupcake Builder Punch. The larger cloud is from the Word Bubble Framelits set. The sentiment--from the Sale-a-bration set "See Ya Later"--is inked with markers in Gray and Crushed Curry, then cut with a Chalk Talk Framelit.

We made this card at March's club meeting, and I think they turned out great!

Jessica's Banner

My niece, Jessica, and I have one BIG thing in common--we both love yellow! She likes blue with hers, but I forgive her for that. Her birthday is this month, and I wanted to make her something she could use every day. I haven't made a banner in a few years, and they're all the rage now--and my sister told me that's what I should make. There are lots of retired Designer Series Papers on this project, and some self-adhesive cork.I used the new Spiral Flower Die--love it!!!--to make the two-toned flowers and the Itty Bitty Banner Framelits to cut out the words. There is room for her to add pictures of her little family, too!  

I really had fun making this banner. My craft room was an absolute disaster afterward, because I had every yellow and blue paper, accessory, and ink out on  my table. Ha! Here are some close-ups:

With a little bit of luck!

St Patrick's Day always brings many memories--some of them not so fond--of the days my daughters were involved in Irish dance. It was almost as busy as Christmas! We ran from venue to venue for a few days, performing jigs and reels and more. These days, my March is a little less hectic. Here is a St Patrick's Day treat that just takes a minute to make! It's the same measurements as the chocolate holders here.

Cut your cardstock 5 1/2 x 2. Score at 2 5/8 & 2 7/8. Punch the ends with a Tag Topper Punch--either Angled or Scalloped. Decorate! Here I used the Small Heart Punch to make a shamrock, with a background from the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper. If you're freaky, like I am, you can use the Bird Builder Punch for help with the stem. (It was quicker than the 6 attempts I made at free-handing a stem I liked!) Inside is one Ghiradelli square--but what a cute, festive giveaway for St Patrick's Day!
