I can't believe how quickly this week has gone by. of course with days off for the kids from snow, it's been a messed up week- 2 days of school is all they had. I am glad they are back tho- I needed some me time! LOL! I've been doing a little card making. I also have been laughing myself silly with some goofy websites- ever hear of the bloggies?
I highly recommend cake wrecks , craftstastrophe, and I can has cheezburger for silliness. really there are some fine sites out there- check them out.
so onto my creations- I made this card using Rae's sketch from 2sketches4you. the papers are KaiserCraft and bobunny double dot CS. I used some lightly patterned KI for the card base too.
As you can see , I got my cuttlebug and a swiss dots embossing folder. fun fun funnyyyy fun!!!
I've used some K&Co stickers, bobunny ribbon, MM letters and my deco scissors.
I also get to announce that I've made the Card Patterns DT and will be posting those cards as we go as well.

Next is this baby card I made with Kaisercraft papers, the base is some KI paper, and I cut out the clouds after embossing my white paper with the devine swirls folder. added in some buttons and dmc floss, some glittery AC thickers letters and my own handwriting.
this card I thought is perfect for Vday- but has a nice different message then just I love you.
I used some Flair papers, some bobunny double dot that I embossed with devine swirls, and my deco scissors. then I added in some prima flower "wings", buttons and floss, and MM letters.
we made lots of caramel popcorn this weekend- it was such a treat to have- yummy!!
since it made so much, I sent in some to the teachers. Recipe below...
I used some curling ribbon to tie it together, then added some cream paper I used my Birds and Swirls embossing folder on top of some bobunny double dot. I added an Around the Block piece, some colorbok chipboard toppers with stickles glitter and my usual button and floss. I also added a brad to the tag, it could have easily hung from the ribbon as well.

6 qt Popcorn; popped
1 c Butter
2 c Brown sugar; packed
1/2 c Corn syrup
1 ts Salt
1/2 ts Baking soda
1 ts Vanilla extract

Preparation Time: 1:30
Heat oven to 250 degrees. Put popped corn into buttered roasting pan. Melt butter in saucepan, stir in brown sugar, corn syrup and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil further without stirring for 5 minutes then remove from heat. Stir in vanilla then soda. Stir well. Pour over corn, stir well. Bake an hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
