Joy's Life Design Team Thursday!

WHOOO! HOOO! 
Today is finally here! 
I've been so excited waiting for today. 
It's "Design Team Thursday"
over at Joy's Life...

You know why????

Because I'm officially a
YAY!!

For my first project as one of the
I decided to use Joy's new stamp set called
The stamp I used is
"CHAIRished Friend"

This was PERFECT for my project. 
I decided to make an award for a friend of mine.
I call it my...
"CHAIRished Friend Award"
Anyone can make this and give it to
a dear friends that you
CHAIRish:)
(since we all can't win an Emmy.  LoL!)

I want to present this award to
all of my Friends / Followers.
I wouldn't enjoy keeping my blog without
each and every one of you!
Enjoy!

Recipe...
I used the Summer in Paris Cartridge
and cut the 3D chair at 5 ½"

I also made a 4" X 2" box bottom on
my Martha Stewart Scoreboard

I covered the box in my favorite paper
and Voila...

The cool thing is that you can use
any color of chair
and any color of paper to match
that CHAIRished Friend's personality!

You can get the stamp over at the Joy's Life's
product page HERE...

projects for Design Team Thursday over at

Thank you all for sharing in my
first Post on the Joy's Life Design Team!

I want to share with you my little Easter
Treats that I gave to my
Co-Workers yesterday!

I have seen these all over the place
with all different types of toppers.

My favorite Blogger / Crafter that does them is...
Candace at

She always makes the most amazing
skittle and M&M sticks:)
No offense to anyone else that
makes these but I just love
the ideas that she comes up with!
I made them once and they were
really easy so I thought it
would be perfect to try it again.

Here they are!

Thank you to everyone who makes these for
inspiring me to do the same!

To see all of Candace's amazing sticks, please
go visit her HERE...

Enjoy!



Hoppy Easter to all of you!

"It's Earth Day, It's My B-Day"




Hello! Welcome to the
"It's Earth Day, It's My B-Day"
Blog Hop
(Hosted by Gaby Creates)
Thank you for hopping along!
 
If you hopped over from
http://www.creativecutter.org/,
You’re in the right place.
 
If you came directly here or from another link,
you should start from the beginning at
to be sure you don't miss out on any
of the fabulous projects!
And, you won't want to miss out on any of
the awesome blog candy either!

This Hop is in celebration of Gaby's Birthday
and Earth Day.  She said we could make anything to 
do with a Birthday or Earth Day. 
I chose Earth Day...

Now…on to my project…

Bees are having a hard time, but we can all do
our bit to help save the bees, even if you’re not
able to become a beekeeper. Indeed, many other pollinators
(not just honey bees) are in serious decline too.
For example, in some countries, like the UK, some
bumblebee species have gone extinct already.
Many butterfly species are also struggling.
Some of the steps you can take will help
pollinators as a whole, as well as the bees. We need our bees,
and helping them is surely in everyone's best interests,
and it's everybody's job to do their bit, however small.
You CAN make a difference!

 



Hope you liked it.

Here is a BIG Happy Birthday wish
for Gaby and a BIG Happy Earth Day wish
for the Earth!

Don't BEE worried, I have Blog Candy!!

I'm giving away a


Pink CGull Tool Set
