A little something...

Hello! Happy Monday to you!

I had a chance to get into my craft room a little bit this weekend and was playing around with some of my Craftin Desert Divas stamp sets.
I saw this cute little milk carton treat holder from the Silhouette Store and thought it would work well the CDD "Short and Sweet Tags" set:


Here is the entire set of "Short and Sweet Tags", 
which can be purchased here.

The paper I used is from the Core'dinations Patterned Cardstock "Brights".  (LOVE how thick this cardstock is!)
The flower is from CTMH.. I've had them for years!
And the rhinestones are from Stampin Up... been in my stash for years too!!
It makes me happy when I use stuff that has been around forever!  :)

And that does it for today!

Thanks for stopping by! 
As always, I love and appreciate your comments. :)

Ears to a hoppy day!!

Hello everyone!
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter.
I had wanted to post this card yesterday, but with my girls on Spring Break last week, I just ran out of time to get it done! :(
I used a cut file from Marjorie Ann Designs titled "Easter in the Jungle".
The fun background papers were all die cut using the NEW Craftin Desert Divas "Banner Dies"
and the super cute sentiment is from the NEW March Release stamp set "Hunny Bunny", also from Craftin Desert Divas.

Well that does it for today.
I hope you liked my card! :)
