Big Shot Matchbox Boxes

How cute are these boxes? My friend Becky H. came over on the 18th and helped me make them for my daughter's bridal shower. I put 3 Ghirardelli chocolate squares in each. They made cute favors to sit at each person's place setting.

Take note that a couple of the boxes have layered ribbon, Becky's idea, and I loved it.

I really like the look of the wider ribbon on the boxes as well. These are so easy and fun. I'm thinking about having a Stampin' Up! event to create these boxes and maybe a couple of other things, not sure yet. The summer is so busy,
my SU business is suffering. I better get on the ball.

Enjoy the photos, they're too cute.

Thanks for your help Becky!

Mother's Day Card

How bad of a daughter am I???? I started to actually buy a Mother's Day card the other day because I knew I wouldn't have time to make one in time to mail to Colorado, but I just couldn't do it. My family and friends are used to get handmade cards from me. So, I didn't get a chance to make a card for my mom until this morning. Here's the card I made. It's rather simple but sometimes less is more, especially when you are running as late as I am! I cased this card concept from Patty's Stampin Spot. She had used the Stampin' Up! Manhattan Flower Textured Die and cut around it like I've done here on this card. I thought it was a great idea!

So, I made the card, wrote on the inside and took pics of both the outside and inside so on Mother's Day my mom could at least see her card ;-) I emailed it to her.
I embossed the greeting on the inside, and yes I wrote a note inside to my mom as well, but you all don't need to see that part ;-)

I am soooo behind on updating my blog. I've been way busy at work. I've also been busy with my daughter Sharayah the last few weekends and today was my grandson Johnny's 1st birthday. Too Cute. Here's his picture. I promise to make something wonderful tomorrow and post.
