Happy St. Patrick's Day!

In the end, there are only two things to worry about:
either you are well or you are sick.
When you're well, there is nothing to worry about.
But if you're sick, then there are two things to worry about:
either you get well or you will die.
When you get well, there is nothing to worry about.
But when you die, then there are two things to worry about:
either you'll go to heaven or you'll go to hell.
When you go to heaven, there is nothing to worry about.
But when you go to hell, you'll be so damn busy shaking hands with friends,
you won't have time to worry!

Valentine's Bookmarks

Instead of doing the typical valentines or candy for my daughter's class this year, I used my trusty Silhouette machine to make some valentine bookmarks.  My daughter really liked them and they were so easy to do!  I cut a sheet out of hearts, and two sheets out of the mats.  On top of the mat I put a white bookmark and then I added the heart on top.  My daughter signed all of them (she's 5) and wrote out the girls' names, but she wanted me to write the boys' LOL.

p.s. I have the file saved - it's a gsd file - if you're interested email me and I can send it to you.

Eye shadow on a card?

On the suggestion of my friend Darcy, I used some old eye shadow (don't ask my why I still have this stuff when I don't wear it lol) with my block stencils to create this card.  Instead of using chalks I used the eye shadow and although you can't see it from the pictures, it's really a nice shimmery color which I think added a nice element to the card.  A little ribbon and bling and I was done.  Enjoy!

Tools used: Silhouette, ribbon punch
