Bugs N Kisses

If you know my girls then you know they love being outside and they love catching BUGS!!! And if you know know I do NOT like BUGS!!! I think they get that trait from their Daddy! Well I was at WalMart and I found these really cute bug boxes and immediately thought..."These would make AWESOME Valentine's day gifts". So I made these cute little tags to go on the sour gummy worms. The stamp set is Bugs N Kisses by SU and the paper is all from Micheals. I used my brights & pastel inks from SU. I thought it would be cute to add the little wiggle eyes to the bugs. I think the lady bug is just adorable with the wiggle eyes. And what says "I love you" more than "here's a bug box go catch some bugs!"

Hope you all have a Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Feeling Kind of Corky?

I had this idea for quiet some time and decided that a Valentine teacher gift would be the perfect time to create it. I used cork board...bought from Walmart in the office supply department (around $5 for five 12 x 12sheets)...thumb tacks, buttons, red tacky tape, bottle cap, clear circle stickers, punch, dp paper, black stazon to stamp my image from MFT, and ribbon. I stamped my image in the corner...*side note* its a really good idea to practice stamping your image on a spare piece of cork board, then added the red tacky tape to my buttons and stuck on the thumb tacks. I punched out my circles for my bottle caps which were purchased at StampAntonio...but you can just ask the hubby to save some tops when he pops a top again...I did have some clear circle stickers that I put on the paper to give it a nice finish. Next I tied my ribbon on the frame and assembled. It was a very easy project to do. The hardest part of this whole project was getting the cork board to sit in the type of frame I had bought.
