Good Morning everybody! Woo-Hoo it's Friday and it's a bee-u-tiful day outside!! The sun in shinning and my tulips are popping up! It's feeling a lot like spring time!
I'm sorry that I was not around yesterday. Betty stopped by and we did not feel too much like crafting (GASP! I know!!) so we just sat and chatted. Oh, and of course ate... It was still a nice day. Sometimes that's just what you need. And Mom's not been feeling well so I made her make an appointment. It's a good thing that I did because the doctor said she's got a nasty sinus infection ~ so we got some medicine for her.

I did have something that I wanted to show you. Betty was over a while back when my dear friend Mary Beth sent me a package. It was a beautiful lunch tin and it was filled with goodies. Betty said that she did not have one of those, so I made her one. Wanna see?

I covered it with paper from The Angel Company's Mimi collection. I added some ribbons, buttons and flowers. I cut the letter's with my Cricut and mod podged the whole thing to seal it. I didn't want to show you until I gave it to her in case she took a peek at my blog. And yes, she liked it! Whew, I'm glad....

I've got another card to show you that I made for Easter. Now purple being my favorite color I think that it shows...

The base card is Lovely Lilac. I layered it with some Orchid Opulence and some dotted papers I found in my scrap drawer. Before I added the layers I attached the ribbon and bow. The image is from my Diamonds CD and I colored him with my pencils and gamsol then cut out the ovals with my nesties. I also sponged some Elegant Eggplant on one of the layers. For the inside I layered the white cs onto a piece of Orchid Opulence and added the strip of dotted paper that I cut away from the front. I stamped the sentiment from D.O.T.S. in Elegant Eggplant and I was complete.

Today hubby is off work for a plant shutdown and I'm not sure what we may be up to. It's really so nice that I'd like to spend time outside. One thing that I've noticed is here in Kentucky we go almost straight from winter to summer. From cold to hot almost immediately. So I'd like to enjoy the spring weather as much as possible.

Here's to wishing you a great spring day where ever you may be!

Love your tin!! The card is adorable, though he does look pretty tuckered out:) TFS. ((HUGS))

How could she possibly not adore this tin? You are a fabulous crafter. I am envious of your time with Betty. Lucky you. My daughter has all of my stamping and crafting supplies now so I have to wait til summer when I visit her to play with them.

Turn about is fairplay. After getting your comment on my blog I thought I'd visit yours and see what kind of things you do. So glad I did! I'm heading over to check out the new Spring offerings from TAC - I have a demonstrator of sorts - but she doesn't keep me up to date.

Thanks for your really kind comment about my work.

Joani- You silly! I didn't LIKE the lunchbox tin- I LOVED it!
I'm going to have to quit saying I like things 'cause you find a way to supply them-- only kidding Ha!
