OH SO SUCCULENT SU! REMARKABLE STAMPERS BLOG TOUR

So we are on another blog tour with the REMARKABLE STAMPERS.  We are featuring the SUCCULENTS and Flowers!  Here's my creation for the tour. 
This is a candle I made for a friend. I highlighted the succulent with dazzling diamonds.


Here's a tip - before punching out the succulents - sponge the edges in different colors. It makes it a lot easier to color first.  After punching I spritzed with water and then molded the flowers.
Now head over to Michele Reynolds Blog for more cool things from the REMARKABLES.

Only one more day until Valentine's Day.  I think I have all of my Valentine's mailed and given out. There were quite a few this year, including friends, small group members, family and coworkers. Check out the inside of the cards.  I love the little red lips.

VALENTINES FOR THE GALS - HAPPY GALENTINE'S DAY

Today is a special day to celebrate with friends - the Gals version of Valentine's day.  I had a lovely craft day yesterday and today a lovely lunch out. Both days with just the girls! Here are the valentines I gave to each of them. I placed each little card in a cute cello bag and added candy hearts and chocolate.  I used the SEALED WITH LOVE SU! bundle and the 6 x 6 paper stack from the SU!Occasions catalog. There is so much in that bundle it is definitely worth it's weight in gold.  I love all the framelit pieces and the stamps. And, because it's SALEABRATION, I was able to get a FREE SALEABRATION item as well!
