Happy Wednesday!

Well ignore the SUN post below! LOL! the clouds are out and it looks like it is gonna POUR down rain... good for the flowers right! :) We are going to the tulip festival next weekend... so just get it out now... (the rain that is!)

So I have a share for ya!! Amanda and I made up this box and card for her penpal Rachel.. she is my friend Amy's daugher! Amanda LOVES writing to her and peeking for the return letters in the mail... anyway.. it was Rachels birthday last monday.. so we sent her a little goodie!
Now you KNOW how much I LOVE Laurens templates she sells at PTI they are so fun fast and easy.. and best of all super CUTE!!! (side note.. check THIS out if you have time.. is that not STUNNING!! WOW!) ANYWAY....this is my favorite template of the moment! LOL! the captured card case.. I shared one below... and now here is Rachels! Amanda colored the CUTE stamp on top.. it is from Pink Cat Studios in set called Lily and Tweet Added lots of stickle LOVE to the image..

I let Amanda pick out a card to make on my new cricut.. using my Wild Card cartridge it is so cute.. has cards and matching envies!! She picked this cutie pie one!! I forgot to get an envelope photo.. but it was cute.. the package fit in, it had a bow on the back... so cute! I added the little tag punch and used the sentiment from the PTI stamp set mixed messages I love how small they are! (they have a mega mixed messages that is FUN too! - but the small set was perfect for the tag!) I stamped the middle yellow using the polka dots basic stamp set! All paper is from PTI also! Added MORE stickle LOVE on the card.. and it was ready to go!

Amanda liked the card she picked out so well she made one for her American Girl Dolls birthday.. which just happens to be the day before hers! :) that was the day she picked!! hee hee! She even put it on the calender! :)
Long winded post today! I have lots to do.. MUST get Easter cards done.. I have 4 card challenges I want to do, a basket challenge! and the everyday home stuff! I better get off this computer! :)
