Let me start today off by saying-SORRY this is so late! I have been beyond busy. I know we are ALL busy! So busy I haven’t hardly been home the last week. I STILL have my top faves to pick too-YIKES! Time is just passing me by.

 I  have some deadlines and stuff I HAD to get done and the computer/blog stuff HAD to be last on the list! Life gets crazy from Sept. on for me- doctors appointments, soccer, parties, practices, open house, PTO, and the stamp industry is heavy into HOLIDAY stuff. Add all that to my plate, in a fury one day-and a NEED for change-I chopped my hair to *just* below my shoulders! EEK! What was I thinking? Seriously though it doesn’t look bad! Ill have to post a photo. Its much more healthy-and EASY!

OK I’m going to be quick cause Jay and I have a HOT date 😀 YIPPEE! Dinner with a group of friends-should be a blast.

OK I know, you don’t need to hear me ramble or complain…….it is Saturday so that means time for a Challenge!


This weeks challenge is to use ANY My Timeless Template and  PACKAGE candy of some sort OR get inspired by your candy wrapper! With Halloween around the corner, and holidays this is the PERFECT time to get some gifts done.:D

Post your creation HERE:

MY inspiration came from Ghirardelli—–> CLICK HERE to view the bag of Raspberry Chocolates 😀

Then lookie here!


I think this came out so pretty!

I used my 3D idea found—>HERE to create these FAB paper punched flowers 😀 I added stamens to the centers for that extra touch. Virtually NO stamping (EEK!)


Then I added some Prima leaves to the sides. I LOVE this flower! Really adds that MUCH loved dimension and POPS out at you-literally.

I  use the template Its on the House (the standard AND Pretty Petite version (my first project using the small one)


My colors are Sweet Blush and the Scarlet Jewel. Very striking combo. Paper is In Bloom.

This is the side view of the large template


The stamped portion used the bird from Just Hatched and the sentiment is from Remember.

After I made this project I BROKE my apron border punch-GRR!!


This is the small version of the template-close up

Now as you can see I decorated the large and small the SAME! Just used a smaller punch for my flower! EASY PEASY!

Large or small I think they look GREAT! This is a gift for a special friend-who I NEED to send a special TY to!

Well that does it for me!
