Pushing Daisies #2

Do you remember the TV show called Pushing Daisies?  I don't remember much about it other than the title but that's  what popped into my head while I was working on this post.  I am indeed "pushing" Daisies # 2 Big Shot die.  I cannot believe it is on the Retiring Accesories list!  Aaack!  I usually do not get too worked up about the retirement list but I really like these daisies!  I also really like the Domestic Goddess DSP and it is 25% off right now and still available, so hurry and order it!.    I love that plaid pattern and right now I have just a couple of scrap pieces left which makes me want more!  

Daisies #2 Domestic Goddess
It has been tough getting back into the routines of my everyday life.  I think it is the price of having too good of a vacation!  I woke up early this morning and thought about my poor neglected blog and all the emails I need to catch up on.   Today with a cup of coffee in hand I am going to work on digging out of my backlog and  getting back to stamping too!  Thank you for bearing with me and could you please send me a beignet and a cafe au lait?

CPC Bird House Box and Card

The end of the school year is near and you might already be thinking about gifts for the kids’ teachers.  How about making this lovely little birdhouse shaped gift box and matching card, perfect for so many different occasions?  (I could see using the pretty birdhouse as a garden party favor, or a bridal shower favor too.) The gift box opens up on top, giving you easy access to put small presents or treats inside!
