Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - My Sunshine

We are hopping around for the Stamp of the Month again - even on Easter!

If you are coming from Laurie's Blog, you are on the right track! 
If not, keep jumping and you will do a complete circle.

Here is the stamp set this month:

Remember, that all the items outlined in red are on our Cricut Cartridge - Artiste.
So I cut a few of them out . . .

I layered the balloons after stamping them in different colors.  I used foam tape to make them pop!
I sponged the baskets to add color to them. I used Sky Ink for the clouds and sponged the edges. The hard part was lining up the stamps with the balloon pieces.

Of course, I've been in the kitchen creating too . . .

Thanks for looking, now hop over to Krista's Blog to see what she has created!

Happy Easter!

ME Wear!!!

Here is what I'm wearing to a party Saturday night! Glitter paper Bad - for Cricut machine blades. Was cutting 4 of these hats, 2 blades (1 a deep blade) dulled in seconds and I only got enough for one.

Thanks for looking!

Early St. Patty Bling

Just a quick post - I created these for my daughter to wear these to school. She said the band hurt so I made the hair band for her. Happy St. Patty's Day early!!

Spring in a Jar - My first contest! is having a contest with their kits.  I had to use only the contents of a few kits to create something new or update something they did.  So I created a acetate jar with Spring inside.

This jar is from the Toil and Trouble Kit - it's a potion jar that I did at Halloween.  
This one is over a foot tall!

Here is some pictures of it all going together:
 It was a feat of magic to put the lid and jar together - did you know if you bend it too far it snaps in half!
 Here is my Cricut cutting lots of colors all at once - ran this machine about 4 times full of leaves.
 The Clematis leaves were used to create a base and make the ground uneven and full of greens.
 I love Clematis plants.  My current house doesn't have one. Can't get it to grow.  Now I have one all year round in my house.  I plan on making a bigger one for my bedroom wall.
 The fence is rectangles twisted into pipes and then I took twine and made it look like it's holding the plant.
 Some flowers are added and more leaves.
 Finished the plants!
Thanks for looking!  Check out for all their kits and you can follow the contest on their Facebook page: Spring Challenge.

Wish me luck!
