I just spent the BEST weekend at a Leadership event. We crafted, laughed a HUGE amount, and reconnected with some friends met only while crafting online. It's so nice to be able to sit across from other crafters and actually talk with them! Talk about recharging! LOVE my stampin' sistas!
I came home on Saturday night/Sunday morning (yup! after TWO days of crafting, got in the car and drove 5 hours home!). You see, I met a wonderful young lady last year at a craft fair. Well, this year, she turned 9 years old! And she and her mom asked me to do a card class for her birthday entertainment!
I had an absolute BLAST! First, Lilly and her friends were just so nice! And Lilly had a unicorn theme this year - and yes, we used the Magical Day Clear Stamp Set. BIG HIT! HUGE! One of the little girls even SQUEALED when I opened the box with that card inside! We made several cards and even a personalized notebook. Lilly's mom is a professional photographer and took LOTS of photos - can't wait to see them!!!! :)
But, because it is always fun to start with an easy card/project - and candy is ALWAYS good - we made a little valentine favor using the Party Pandas Clear Stamp Set. Want to see it?

I'll be doing this little cutie for my Facebook Live on Wednesday, February 7th, 2018 at 11:30 am (Eastern). It will be a VERY short video because this is just so easy to make!
And the kicker is... we made a VERY similar item at the Leadership event this past weekend as one of our make-and-takes! Now, I did alter the dimensions to fit the candy I chose to use, but it is almost the exact same design! YUP - I put my make-and-takes to work! AND, not to break my arm patting myself on my back, but I arrived home at 2am, got up at 7am, and had this little cutie cut and packed to be at Lilly's by 12:30pm! YUP - it is THAT quick and easy!
Look forward to "seeing" you on Wednesday at the Facebook Live! Enjoy!
