Feel Better Male/Female Cards

Good Morning,

Today it is a bright and sunny 77 degrees here in Maryland but over the weekend, it was rainy and dreary out.  We had snow, sleet and rain, just the kind s of weather to hide in my craft room.

I decided to replenish my get-well cards, it seems that everyone is sick with something these days and it is always good to extra around.

I made four cards, two female and two male.

I made two sweet cards for a female.  The little owl flair is from the DLART Store.  I love owls!  The flowered paper is from MME "Hello Georgeous" the rest is from my stash.  I chalked the "Better" letters with Quick Quotes Powder Puff chalk to make them stand out.
The embossing is "Bubbles"

I just love the antique car paper!  I have a button punch so I made the button out of paper.  The embossing is "wood-grain."

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by!


International Art & Soul #27

Good Morning Friends,

I love International Art & Soul design team.  We are just a bunch of laid back women who love creating things.  There is no pressure, just fun.  Each of the design team sisters gets to choose a few of the themes for the year.  This is one of the themes that I came up with "Use Your Stuff."  I chose it because I have soooo much stuff!

I made this card for my sister for her birthday, she is a fantastic baker, she makes the most delicious cakes!  I saw this DWCV Stack called "Nana's Kitchen" and bought it thinking I would make something for her...um...about two years ago....

I don't know if you can see it, but down on the bottom of the card is a "rub on" remember rub ons?  I think they came and went very quickly!

I have had the sentiment above for many years, finally found the right card to use it on.

I used two different stamped sentiments on the back.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

DLART February Linky Challenge - ATG
C.R.A.F.T challenge - Mother's Day/Female
Seize the Birthday - Coffee or Tea (tea pots on background paper)

Candy Store Bear's Treat Box

Good Morning,

Did you have a good weekend?  I had the chance to get into my craft room and make some treat boxes.  I originally was just going to make one for my great -niece but I decided to make one for my sister who likes bears.

See the little bear baker?  So cute!

Here are both of them.  I made a few changes to the svg file.  I cut the candy sign out three times and glued it all together to make it stronger.  I added plastic to the windows and I cut out cardboard and put it at the bottom to make it stronger.

Here is the side view of the window with plastic in it.

Here is the inside with some tootsie roll treats.  You can also put a tea light in there and use it for a Valentine's decoration.

I am entering this Treat Box into the following challenges:
