    All those extra pieces…

    Sooo much more happiness…. Here are the other pieces that I had to use up… I do not want to end up with an overflowing bits and pieces container like before… YIKES!! Adding a few extra pieces for these three. Paula, do you notice that little piece?? Apparently it was not too small. Adding tulips for an Easter card, an extra layer and a few flowers. What would you have added?? Can you see the Wink of Stella inside the tulips?? Now to write in them all and get in the mailbox to bring someone some sunshine. Hugs and Have a Great Day getting Crafty!!

    Note Cards and Thank You

    I needed a quick thank you… Thank goodness for the Note Card & Envelopes (144236). I had some of the Pressed Petal DSP (149500), then add some Whisper White Metallic Edge ribbon (144213).

Tooo cute and so darn pretty!! Have a Great Day getting Crafty!!
