Happy Easter!

Hello :)
It is Crystal from Crystal's Creative Corner.
Are you all ready for Easter? It doesn't feel like Easter here in Northwestern Pennsylvania...we are covered in snow! And it is coooooold here!
It sort of feels more like Christmas! :/
I wanted to try to be springy & Eastery for my post today so I made an Easter card.
I used Papertrey Ink perfect match cardstock in Lemon Tart for the base. I used Echo Park patterned yellow & white paper. I cut the bunny from the Silhouette Store, popped her up with some 3-D pop dots and added a little pom pom to her bottom :)
I used some flowers and jewels from my stash to add some texture.
I used Candy Charms & Banners for the banner and stamped the Happy Easter sentiment from Easter Treats!
And last I added some Trendy Twine in Lemon Tart and Tickled Pink.
I hope you all have a Happy Easter and thank you for stopping by today!

Welcome to the St. Patrick's Day Hop!
If you are here from Miranda's Blog you are in the correct spot.

Ashley has the details for the blog candy up for grabs, so make sure to go see her!
Here is my project:
I made an Irish treat!
I used Jaded Blossom's Lucky Treats for the senitment and the candies stamps.
 I stamped the sentiment on the Jaded Blossom Candy Charms and Banners die.
I cut this cute leprachan from Simply Charmed.
 I added a little Trendy Twine in Holly around the treat box.
I put the leprachan on an Action Wobble..so he could dance an Irish jig--but couldn't get a great picture of him wobbling! But he does!
I hope you have a safe and Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Follow the Rainbow!

Hello everyone! Today is my day to post for the Jaded Blossom Design team and I am happy to be posting a St. Patrick's Day treat for you today!
I used the 1x8 bags and put an AirHead Sour candy that looks like a rainbow in it. I cut out a cloud shape from the Silhouette Store and stamped the sentiments from Lucky Treats on the clouds. I cut the pot of gold and cut an extra pot and glued them together to make a small pocket for the treat to slide into. Added a shamrock on the pot of gold and all finished! :0)
Here is a close up of the clouds!
Thanks for stopping by today and have a Happy St. Patrick's Day!

For my project today I made a vase to display some beautiful spring daffodils to help get the word out about The American Cancer Society's Daffodil Days 2013.
I used the brand new Candy Charms & Banners Die and the new Awareness Ribbon Die. As well as, the new Awarness Candies stamp.
Here is a close up
The gold awareness ribbon is for Childhood Cancer.
  "While the Daffodil Days program involves offering daffodils every spring to donors in appreciation for their contributions, it is about more than just giving beautiful flowers - it is everyone's opportunity to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays, where cancer never steals another year from anyone's life."
-The American Cancer Society
