Donut Be Sad!!

Hello my crafty friends!  I hope this post finds you well.  This week I am honored to be highlighted as the Unity Stamp Company Growing in Unity gal!  How awesome?!?!  I know right :)  I am in love with so many stamps and stamp companies but I adore Unity Stamps--seriously as a MN girl... I simply love that this company is based right here in MN!  And did I mention they have AMAZING stamps!  There's so much to love about their stamps...BUT my favorite part is that they have stamps for just about everyone's style and taste!  I do adore me some puns and Unity never, ever disappoints! I also think it's fabulous how I can add die cuts to my Unity stamps for a perfectly adorable look.  So I hope you enjoy all the things I have to share this week!

Happy Birthday Chic!

Hello my crafty friends!  I hope this post finds you well and that you're all having a great day.  I am a little disappointed to report that we had our first snow here in MN.  Ugh!  I always think I'm going to be prepared for that first snow fall...but I never am :)  So I am just trying to stay warm and hope that the sun keeps shining and it warms up... a girl can dream.   So today is my day designing for Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons and hope you love my little birthday treat box.  I love this little box--it's just so perfect for a little treat and in this case M and M's.  And a special shout-out to my friend Sarah!  See you tomorrow friend!!!

The paper is from SU! and from a super old DCWV stack, I did adjust the cut file but leaving out a piece of the glasses and adding some googlie eyes instead-- I kinda love it :)
