I started loving Hello Kitty around age 10! Some 30 years later my girls love her too! The Hello Kitty line offers a stamp for every occasion!


First up... I have a little card for a friend going to California this summer. I love adding bits of twine to buttons! Here I've used Cappuccino!




Next up... I have a fun thank-you card for a friend who really went the extra mile to help me out of a bind.


Another fun little project are these flat glass marble magnets. Now as you can see I didn't quite finish. But all I need is a little diamond glaze and a strong magnet!
Hey...a good craft project for my kids this afternoon!


Finally, I have a little winter ensemble using Fancy Flakes. Some friends of mine got married last Dec.31st, and their theme was snowflakes! How perfect would this have been back then!


A couple of sweet and simple cards. I think the charcoal twine really sets it off!



Here I made a matchbook notepad which slides into the bag nicely!


And a sweet little tin with some yummy treats!
Thanks for visiting with me! From here you'll hop over to Kim Moreno. Can't wait to see what she has for ya'll!
