My Little Lollipop Valentine

We are chilly in Wisconsin!  It seems appropriate that today is the last day of January.  I was lucky enough to get to stay in all day w/ Evan today.  Thursdays are our busy day w/ therapy.  He has about 8 hours of therapy most Thursdays. 
During one of his sessions, I had time to take photos of the little lollipop valentine that we did last week at my Hostess Club. 
It is made w/ the 2 tags punch.
Inside there is a tootsie pop although any kind of sucker would probably work---OR even cake pops.  Yum!

 And no Valentine would be complete w/o a little tag and a ribbon.

Oh Whale!

We are having some nasty weather in Wisconsin today.  There is snow and freezing rain.   It's a great day to stamp! 
Have you seen the new Stampin Up! mini catalog that came out the beginning of January?  It is chock full of amazing new products.  First of all, notice the clouds.  It's a new embossing folder from SU!  It is absolutely adorable and in my humble opinion a must have.  :)  Then again there wasn't much in the mini that wasn't a must have.  It's amazing how that works---SU! always has something I need according to my husband.  Ah husbands of Stampers are wonderful people.  LOL
Also in the mini is a sweet little set called Oh Whale.  I think this whale is just amazing for kids or people like me that love cute things.  There is even a clearlit available to cut him out. 
I went w/ a little smaller card. This card is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 and the colors used are whisper white and island indigo and then the real red polka dot dsp is from the summer smooches pack. 

Oh yes, every whale needs water.  The waves were made w/ the adorning accents edgelits.  I like the little scallops.

Cold Hands? Make a Mitten!

I know I shouldn't have favorites, but like most people there are things that just make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside and out.  Well that is the way I feel about the Make A Mitten stamp set that was in the recently retired mini catalog.  I REALLY hope that it reappears in the Idea Book and Catalog this summer. 
These little mittens are just so stinkin' cute!
 I didn't want a dreary cold winter card.. I needed some Cherry Cobbler to warm it up and of course some rhinestones!

I pulled out my Not Quite Navy cardstock and ink--it's been awhile since I used it. 
I really like the Not Quite Navy/Baja Breeze/Cherry Cobbler combination. 

Custom Bag and a Voodoo Doll

 It is hard to believe that Christmas was a month ago already.  It seems like the winter is passing and that spring will soon be here.  I know we have February and March to get through here in Wisconsin, but I'm holding on to those memories of spring grass and a warm breeze.  
I have been keeping myself busy with my family, but I was excited to take a little time out and make a custom bag for one of my customers, Luann.  She provided the material and I sewed it up for her.  I really like the gray, black and yellow together.  This is her new SU! catalog carrying bag.  :)  I can't think of a better purpose for a day. Well maybe an SU! catalog and some chocolate to munch on while flipping through the pages. 

Here's the quilted side of the bag. 

And here's the rag bag side. I love the shabby look and
the material Luann provided frayed out beautifully.

Okay... I found a little voodoo doll pin cushion online made out of felt.  I thought it was adorably ugly.  This was a 20 minute little project on night while Evan was in therapy.  The pattern was just a freehand drawing on a sheet of paper--simple simple.
What do you think of this little guy?
