Crafting for All Occasions

It's a snow day in Colorado and I love getting crafty when the weather outside is frosty. This is a great time of year to get ahead on cards and gifts for the rest of the seasons. This gift idea is great for a thank you or birthday. The shea butter lotion is a welcome winter treat, since everything is so dry and the bright colors remind us that spring and summer will come again soon. (The paper I used is "Flower Child" from Pressed Petals and the stamp set is by Basic Grey and I got both at Big Lots for super cheap!)


I found a set of these cremes at Costco and made them all up, so they are ready to give. I also made a few cards in a similar style, with a variety of sentiments. It's so nice to have a quick gift ready when you need it as a birthday surprise or even a cheer up or get well treat.

Since the creative juices have really been flowing lately, I decided to make a bunch of cards too. When I come up with an idea I like, I make 4 or 5 of the exact same card, so I have about 40 or 50 cards in my stash now!

I've also been working on Valentines. You can see a couple in this pile. To see a few more ideas for Valentine's Day from my blog, CLICK HERE
