Happy St. Patrick's Day!

This card was our Stamp Club project this month. Originally, I saw this card in a magazine, but do not remember when or where--sorry about that! Everyone liked the design. I do not usually make St. Patty's Day cards, but this one was fun to make.

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.
Wishing you rainbows!
Bye for now, Maria

Butterfly Thoughts

This winter we got much more snow than we're used to. I am so ready for spring this year! I was inspired to make this card using the Shades of Spring DSP and the Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die. The phrase says, "you're never more than a thought away." Is there someone you've been thinking about lately? Why not send them a card and let them know? Such a small thing could make a big difference in their life!

Medallion Gift Bag

I received this goodie bag at my door one day last week from my fantabulous upline--what a nice surprise!! I needed a little pick me up--thanks Sharon! That's one of the things I love about rubber stamping--sharing our creations. It's a great way to bring sunshine and inspiration into the lives of others.
Here's what's inside:
The portfolio was made with one of Stampin' Up!'s file folders.
What it looks like on the inside...
This card was made the Sending Love Specialty DSP and the heart treat cups.
The adorable little tote is two pieces of felt cut out from the Basket and Blooms die and sewn together. Add a felt flower accent with a rhinestone brad and some ribbon.
Happy Stamping! Share your creations with others--it just might make their day. It did mine!
Bye for now, Maria
