Happy Saturday

Hiya! I hope everyone is having a great weekend so far. I was up late last night because I couldn't sleep (again)! This premenopausal stuff is for the birds! I guess I can be thankful that I haven't yet experienced the hot flashes like my dear friend Denice! Knowing my luck, that little sympton will probably appear smack dab in the middle of one our hot, sticky Texas summers. I sure hope not!
Anywho, while I was up late last night I caught up with my google reader and checked out the goings on in other peoples lives. While I was blurfing, I came across this challenge on Jennifer's blog! I'm not entering this one since I started out making a box, but didn't like the lid and decided to make it a basket instead! I'm giving this to my mom for V-day. I'm gonna fill it with Hershey's hugs and kisses, but I envision these in soft pastels for Easter. Won't they be cute? The instructions for this box fold can be found on Cambria's blog.


Stamps: Too Terrific Tags
Paper: DP (Target $1)
Ink: Real Red Pigment Ink
Accessories: Ribbon, Primas, Jeweled Brads

Super duper easy!

While I'm posting I also wanted to share a few awards that some of my blogging friends have bestowed on me. This first one if from my SBS2 sister, Carol. Carol is so encouraging and always has nice things to say. She is very creative and has some awesome cards on her blog. You should go check it out. You won't be dissapointed. She sent this to me about a week or so ago. I bet she thought I forgot but I didn't. I was just slow in posting it! Thanks Carol for this terrific award. You cheer me up too!

This second one came from one of my dear online blogging and SCS friend, Tammy. I love Tammy's work and have been a fan from day one. She always has such nice things to say and I am glad to consider her a friend. You should check out her blog. You won't be dissappointed. Thanks for presenting me with this award Tammy. You rock girl!!!!!

I would like to nominate everyone that checks this out because I think you are all terrific, so feel free to post this on your blog!

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

It takes me a while to get to my tags too, so I didn't even think about it!! No worries! I love your basket! Cambria's blog is a huge inspiration. Everything she does is amazing! This would be cute for Easter is pastel or bright colors! I'm going to have to give these a try! I'm sure your mom will LOVE it!
