Happy Birthday Rachel!!!!

We had Rachel's family birthday party this past weekend, but today is the big day!!  It's hard to believe that 15 years ago we were waiting, and waiting, and waiting in the hospital room for her to come into the world.  And today she is 15 years old!!  I wanted to make a card just for her that she would like and she did!!


Paper - Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Crumb Cake, DSP - Best Year Ever
Stamps - Teeny Tiny Wishes, Birthday stamp from Michael's $ bin
Ink - Stazon
Accessories - Striped Embossing Folder, Ruffled Trim
Punches - Modern Label, Scalloped Tag, Word Window, Cupcake Builder, Circle Punch

This card came together so quickly and I loved how it turned out.  I used some dazzling diamonds on the cupcake to give it some sparkle.

I decided to decorate the inside as well and punched out some of the DSP circles.

Happy Birthday Rachel!!!!
We Love You!!!

Box for EOS Balm

Do you love EOS??  I do and so do the girls!  When I saw this cute video, I knew it was exactly what I would make for the end of the year teacher's gifts.  For my practice run, I had a dark pink EOS so I used one of my favorite colors - Melon Mambo with pink Piroutte.

I didn't have the stamp she used, so I used a cute stamp I had purchased at Michael's $ bin awhile ago.  I actually cut the pieces out by hand and layered them with my dimensionals.

You could also use this box for other things by eliminating the holder for the EOS.

I really think this is such a cute gift idea!  Well, its back to cooking.  We are having the family party for Rachel's birthday tomorrow - hard to believe she will be 15 on Thursday!!!

Thanks for stopping by,

Happy Easter!!

I almost forgot to post these cute little Easter baskets that I saw in the Silhouette store.  I asked my friend Denise if she could get them for me and we spent a fun morning putting them together.

I just fell in love with this cute little bunny!

Then I made this adorable little chick!

This little lamb was begging to be made, so of course I included it in my goodies!  I loved them so much that I made two of each!  All I have to do is put some grass and surprises in them and they are ready to go.  I am really impressed with how great the cameo does the cutting and scoring.  It is definitely on my wish list!

Well, lots to do - everyone in the Pansy Patch wishes you and your family a wonderful Easter!!

Milk Carton Egg Boxes

I just finished making some adorable boxes for my daughter to take to the Wellness Center.  I saw these cute boxes over on Pootles Blog and knew that they would be great for what I wanted to make.  I love her videos.  She does such a great job.

These came together pretty quick.  Tonight I'm going to make a few more to put out on the table for place cards - that is if I don't eat the rest of the chocolate eggs!!  I was able to use up some more DSP scraps and it also gave me an excuse to buy this Brights DSP which I really like.  Believe it or not we woke up to 3" of more snow yesterday morning!  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this weekend will be sunny and warm for the Easter Egg Hunt!  This will be Jennifer's first egg hunt - she loves to play with all the plastic eggs.

Thanks for stopping by,
