The Mummies

Hi everyone. These are Hershey chocolate bars decorated to look like mummies. I found this wonderfully creative idea at the Chic n Scratch free tutorials. You can view the fab tutorials HERE. I am making these treats for my co-workers. They are really easy. I wrapped my sealed Hershey bar in foil, then wrapped cream colored paper around each bar. Then just tear your strips of a little shade darker paper, chalk and glue. I used wiggle eyes and made name tags for my bars. They are cute!

Birthday Card for Sue B!

This is a birthday card for my friend Sue B! The stamp is a digital I bought from The Stamping Boutique, very nice people over there! The inside of the card reads "Forget health food, at our age we need all the PRESERVATIVES we can get!" I got that sentiment as free word art, sorry I don't remember where. I used stickles on the Bee Hive and I got a little carried away, the paper got a little to wet and started to buckle, however it was ok once it dried. Another lesson learned on my 3rd card ever made and only the second one colored. Have a great week!

Birthday Card for T

Well, here is my first ever coloring project. The first picture is of the front of the card and is actually a coloring book page I colored with Zig Markers. The second picture is the inside sentiment. This is a Birthday card for my friend Theresa. Her nick name is T, thus the teapot and sentiments. All the nice gals on the Frugal Scrapper yahoo group assured me that the coloring gets easier and..better lol! If you come across this let me know what you think!
