Bunny Boxes

~ This post is a little late, but I have to show you these adorable little bunny boxes that I created using a new cutting file designed by Shirley Clark of Paperthreads!!! How cute are these?!!! They were super simple to create, and I was equipped with little treat boxes that were a hit! I gave one to my secret sister at church, and I watched her study and awe over it for quite some time!!

"Love"ly Tear Turtle

~ Can you say MIA??!! I know...I'm sorry I've been such a blogging slacker lately. Between my mom being ill with cancer & treatment, starting a new job, and the busy-ness of life in general, I have found little time for papercrafting. However, I have squeezed in a few projects since I last posted on February 4th, and they'll be showing up on the blog soon!

My first post for today is this little guy, who was such a joy to make! I was in a "Love"ly tear critter swap, which challenged us to create a tear critter with the love or sweetheart theme. Most people in the swap made elegant bears with dresses and candy, but I found inspiration for this love-ly turtle from a pattern designed by Thick mulberry paper, brown and green ink and chalk, a heart punch, a black marker, and a white gel pen were all the supplies I needed to make this quick and cute little turtle packed with love!! Doesn't he look hug-able?!!!

Glad to be blogging again,
