    Rick’s Pearl Purse 3D Here we are on Thursday again. This week its Rick’s Pearl Purse 3D Thursday idea that I will be sharing. This fun idea could be for a Gift Card holder, treat or simple cute idea for you this week. I have been looking at this Pretty Pillowbox since last fall. I think this one did it for me. How stinkin’ Cute is this. I love the addition of that Pearlescent Paper for the “flap”. However, Rick took it to the next level by embossing it using the Seashells 3D folder.

    JoAnne has this 3D Thursday an Easter idea.

How cute is this?? Okay, do not whine, there is a bit of fussy cutting!! Off the top of my head I see… Medium Daisy punch, Tailor Made tags, Linen Thread, Bumblebee Gingham ribbon in addition to the stamp set and DSP. I can say that these are also an easy color.

    Library Pansy’s Happy Birthday card for January.

    Library Pansy’s Happy Birthday This month’s Library Pansy’s Happy Birthday card was a hit! I was not surprised. I typically try and do BRIGHT and cheery cards. I know I have talked about the hooohuumms before, but they are a REAL thing! Anyway, the Pansy Petal Suite has all you need to beat them. Happy flowers, bright colors and fun bee trinkets. Even that Bumblebee Gingham ribbon works. The sentiments also from the suite stamp set called Pansy Patch. This suite focuses on the 2021-2023 In-colors.
