Hello, Hello!

Hi guys! Yesterday got away from me and before I knew it, it was too late to blog or even keep my eyes open for that matter so I waited for today to show you my cute little card. I also have a few photos of a project I made to show my hostess club girls. I'll show the card first. Here goes...
This is just a simple "hello" of those all occasion friendship cards that are great to have on hand. I made it because that owl is just too cute and I couldn't resist making him with a cute little red vest. The tree branch he is on comes from Season of Friendship and the sentiment is from Hello Again. Both are regular catalog merchandise. I am going to skip the links today but all items can be found in my online store. The color scheme is a fav of mine and I have it listed in my color coach which includes several blank pages for keeping your own color combos. The colors are Concord Crush, Poppy Parade, So Saffron, and Old Olive.

Next up are my little Valentine's treat jars. I had lots of scraps left from all my Filled with Love bundle projects so I trimmed a couple glass jars left over from my husband's lab at work. Take a look...
Here is a close-up of the top so you can see the little tag (from Birthday Bakery stamp set):
And then a close up of the taller one so you can read the tag on the front:
Aren't they darling? They both were so easy to make too. Even though you probably can't duplicate the exact containers, I wanted to show you that just about anything can be made cuter with a little bit of embellishment. These are ready to add a little bit of candy and I have 2 precious Valentine's Day treats.

That's it for me today. Check back this weekend because I will have some new projects to share as soon as I photograph my work. Happy weekend!


  1. Love them all! I have all those things for card, except the sentiment, so I'm going to make some of those very soon. Cute cute cute! And I love seeing repurposed containers; always inspires me to pretty up something of my own.

  2. Even cuter in person....Love them.

  3. Love,love love the containers!! I need to start looking for things to embellish!
