Sending Lots of Love Your Way

Well, Christmas has come and gone and now it's time to start working on Valentine cards!  I wanted to use the adorable Bicycle stamp from Two Paper Divas and have little hearts coming out of the basket...so that's what I did!  
I started with a few Valentine patterned papers and roughed up the edges to give it an older look.  I added some cream lace and created a pocket if you wanted to slip a little note or gift card into it.  On top of that, I used the new Postcard stamp from TPD.  I added their Bicycle stamp with pop dots to the postcard and colored it dark red and gray with copics.  I used paper for the basket that had little polka dots. :) 
Coming out of the basket are little cream and red hearts that have been popped and glittered.  To finish off this card, I added a cream bow with silver twine and a red felt heart and pearl.  Isn't the Hugs & Kisses stamp a cute touch?  It's from Banners #4 from Divas.

Sure hope this card makes you smile!  Thanks for taking a minute to check out my blog, Kirby's Kards!

Make it a great day!

Sip by Sip

Tea, Coffee or Hot Chocolate?  What's your favorite beverage?  
I just love this new stamp set from Two Paper Divas.  I decided to use one of the mug stamps and stack three on top of each other.  I used several patterned papers, some scalloped trim and brown twine.  I like to rough up the edges on my cards to give them an older, rustic look.  The saying is from the same set, "Enjoy life sip by sip, not gulp by gulp."  Isn't that the truth??!!  

I sure hope you have a wonderful, blessed Christmas taking time to celebrate the real meaning of the season, the birth of Jesus Christ.  

Thanks for stopping by Kirby's Kards!

Merry Christmas!

The Best Time of the Year

Well, if you're like me, you still have some presents to get wrapped.  So, I decided to make a sweet little tag for one of those gifts.  Check it out! 
I started by using the Pine Branch stamp set from Two Paper Divas.  It includes both the pine branch and a pine cone.  I used one of their digital sentiments from Holiday Sentiments and made it a little bigger to make it the focal point of the tag.  I added some green twine, rustic jingle bells and roughed up the edges too.  To finish it off, I splattered some brown ink on the tag.  Too fun!

I am so excited to share a project that I made with a couple of card making friends!  
We each started with the same rustic, metal piece, but each of our designs are different, which makes it oh so fun!  This has definitely become one of my new favorite decorations for the Christmas season.  Here are some close ups so you can see all the details.
I started with a cute brown and cream polka dot paper for the background.  Would you expect anything but polka dots from me?  LOL :o)  I added a bingo card, a little ticket, a paper that had a 25 on it and the sweet snowman with children printable.  I used some glitter on the kids and snowman to add some sparkle, since the little lantern would light that area up.  The lantern is from Tim Holtz and has a battery pack that I hot glued to the back of the metal shadowbox.  Pretty sweet, huh?  I added the white picket fence with glitter and tucked a few trees (which I also glittered) as well as some little presents that I tied with twine behind the fence.
I added some greenery and candy canes with a little Merry Christmas token with twine to the front of the fence.  In front of the fence I put a worn December calendar.  To top off the box on top, I made a medallion and added a star, snowflake and the Frosty Fun saying from Two Paper Divas.  Isn't it just so fitting with the kids and snowman?  Love it!  I then added a little metal plaque that says Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow to the top center.
I just love this bottom area too.  It has a couple trees, some vials of snowflakes and this little twig with bells.  To it I added a couple bows, a little Deck the Halls charm and these Tim Holtz mini skates.
This project was an absolute blast to make with Melissa and Cyndy!  Thanks girls!  I sure hope you have enjoyed my new Christmas project for 2014.  It's a great addition to our home.  Thanks for stopping by Kirby's Kards for some holiday inspiration!

Make it a great day!

From Our Home to Yours

Two Paper Divas just released new stamps for the month of December and I have the privilege of sharing one with you.  Check out this cute Postcard stamp!  
I used a rustic printed paper for the background and then added kraft paper behind the postcard and roughed up the edges to give it an older look.  I then added a poinsettia die cut and popped each layer adding a pearl to the center and a leaf stick pin.  
I used the Snowy Greetings stamp from the Warm Winter Wishes set and finished with some pom pom ribbon and a couple buttons with lace.  A simple, but sweet Christmas card for that special someone on your list.

Hope you are staying warm!  Thanks for checking out Kirby's Kards, I appreciate it!

Ho Ho Ho!

I just love this time of year with all the Christmas lights and decorations!  So much fun!  In keeping with the spirit of Christmas, I wanted to share a card I made using one of the newer stamps from Two Paper Divas called Ho Ho Ho.  Who doesn't love a cute, jolly, Santa card?  
I started with some polka dots and striped papers for the background and topped it with a tag using some Christmas music.  I cut out the Santa stamp and colored his hat with copics.  I used glitter for the fur on his hat and wink of stella for his mustache and beard.  I cut out the Ho Ho Ho stamp and popped it.  I added a red bow with a little greenery and pearls, some green rick rack and a button to the top of the tag.

The Stockings Were Hung

We've been decking the halls this week at our house!  We turned on a Christmas special on TV, made some popcorn and worked on getting all the decorations up.  Just have the tree left!  I wanted to pop in and share a cute stocking tag I made using a digital image from Two Paper Divas.  I've been wanting to use stockings for a while now, so I hope you enjoy my creation!  
I started with a kraft paper tag and added a polka dot printed paper to the background and topped it with a December bingo card.  I then added some silver tinsel, red scalloped trim and a little cream pom pom to the bottom.  I added a couple festive buttons and a green plaid bow with twine and jingle bell.  The focal point of this tag is definitely the three stockings.  I started by using the digital image   called Holiday Greetings.  I adjusted the stockings to the size I wanted for my tag.  I then printed them on various papers and cut them out.  I popped them and added mini clothespins for a little 3-D effect!  
Thanks for stopping by Kirby's Kards today!  I sure hope you are getting in a little time to be creative!

Baby, it's cold outside!

I wanted to share a different penguin card I made this week.  I started with some fun, more traditional Christmas patterned papers.  I added a couple scalloped trims, a paper doily and that oh so cute little penguin.  He's from the Two Paper Divas Penguin stamp set.  I'm a big fan of scarves, so I especially love his scarf!
I added a cute bow with a star, twine and a little red jingle bell.  Isn't the "Baby, it's cold outside" saying sweet??!!  It's also from Two Paper Divas Warm Winter Wishes stamp set.

May we all be reminded of our many blessings this Thanksgiving holiday. 

Make it a great day!

Penguins on Parade

I just couldn't wait to play with this new Penguin stamp from Two Paper Divas.  Isn't he so cute?  
I started with some sweet, winter patterned papers with trees in the background and added a white  paper doily, a yellow patterned paper doily and then the adorable, little penguin.  I stamped him on an ivory snowflake paper and then colored the black and yellow sections with copics.  The scarf and hat are cut from printed papers.  I just love him!  I used the "Snowy Greetings" stamp from stamp set Warm Winter Wishes, which is running vertically on the right side.  To finish this card off, I added a few snowflakes with pearls, a seam binding bow with pink and silver twine and a jingle bell. 

Sure hope you are able to spend some cozy time with a cup of hot cocoa in front of the fireplace.

Make it a great day!

Candy Anyone?

Who took the candy from the candy jar?  Well...probably me!  I do love a good, sweet treat!  I wanted to share a fun birthday card with you using the Candy Jar stamp set from Two Paper Divas.  I decided to go with a pink theme on this card and I colored the candy two shades of pink.  I couldn't resist using some polka dot paper for this card as well!!!  I love these jars, the possibilities are endless and Two Paper Divas is releasing new jar inserts every so often too!  Can't beat that!  The "Celebrate" stamp is from their Everyday Sentiment set.
Thanks for stopping by Kirby's Kards today!  I hope you are getting a little creativity time in before the holidays!

Chilly Days Call for Hot Cocoa

Well, the colder weather has certainly hit our neck of the woods.  Bryan and I have already made hot cocoa (with marshmallows of course!)  So on that note, here's my creation for the week using the "You Warm My Heart" stamp set from Two Paper Divas.  
I started with some cute pink patterned papers and added a doily and scalloped circle.  I just thought this mug with whipped goodness looked so yummy!  I added some glossy accents and glitter to the cream and little peppermint sticks.  I finished it off with a couple buttons with lace and the saying "You Warm My Heart."

Hope you are having a great week!  This time change has messed me all up! :)  Thanks for stopping by Kirby's Kards!

I'm trying to stay ahead of the game and get some more Christmas cards done.  So, here is another fun way to use that oh so cute Mason Jar stamp from Two Paper Divas.  
I stamped the mason jar on a teal snowflake paper and added some lace, a scalloped pink trim (from Two Paper Diva's Jar Accessories Set #3) and pink twine with a glittered jingle bell.  I couldn't resist these little snowballs in the mason jar!  The background is also a snowflake paper that I rounded two of the edges.  To complete this card I added a "Snowy Greeting" from stamp set Warm Winter Wishes and some pink pearls.  Too fun!

Hope you are having a great week...thanks for stopping by Kirby's Kards!

Frosty Fun

Halloween cards...DONE (mailed yesterday)!!!  Christmas cards...one down and many to go!  On that note, I wanted to share with you a fun, ice skating card I created.  I think this stamp set, "Warm Winter Wishes" by Two Paper Divas is so adorable!  I love everything about it!  You can click HERE to check out all of their amazing stamps.  
I first stamped the ice skates and cut them out.  For the blade portion, I colored them with copic markers and added some glossy accents to make them shiny.  I used Wink of Stella on the skates to add a glittery effect.  Aren't they cute with the little pink pom poms?  I used some fun patterned papers with snowflakes and Christmas words, a little white trim with some silver to jazz it up a bit, a couple glittered snowflakes, a pink seam binding bow with some pink twine and a few sleigh bells.  The sentiment "Frosty Fun" is also from the same set. Here's a closer view of the skates.
I sure hope you're having a great week.  Make sure you take some time to be a little crafty this week!  Thanks for checking out Kirby's Kards!

Baseball and Crisp Fall Days

Let's Go Royals!  (Clap, Clap, Clap Clap Clap!!!)  Baseball fever has taken the Kansas City area by storm!  It's been twenty-nine long years since the Royals have been to the playoffs.  With only four teams left, we are all hoping that our Boys in Blue can take it all the way to the World Series and bring us our second championship.  
Check out this fall card I made using two different stamp sets from Two Paper Divas.  I started with one of their new stamps called "Autumn Block."  It's just perfect for the entire fall season.  I colored the pumpkin, leaf and acorn with copic markers, as well as, the outer frame.  The other stamp set I used is "Fall is in the Air."  From this set I stamped the acorns in two different colors and then cut them out and popped a couple for some dimension.  The patterned papers are from Simple Stories...I thought the colors were just rich and beautiful.  I added a thick, brown-stitched ribbon to the middle of the card and scrunched part of it.  I added some rust colored dots to the top right side in three different sizes and a seam binding bow too.

I sure hope you are enjoying the crisp weather and taking some time to be creative!  Thanks for stopping by Kirby's Kards today!

Fall Traditions

Pumpkin Patches, Hayrides, Corn Mazes...what's your fall tradition?  Autumn is my absolute favorite season!  It's just perfect for a bike ride enjoying all the beautiful fall colors with my hubby or a stroll with our dogs.  We try to take advantage of the gorgeous weather and spend as much time outdoors as we can.  I wanted to share a fun card I made using some of the latest stamps from Two Paper Divas.  You're going to LOVE them!
I started with their new fence stamp, which I stamped, cut out and distressed to give it a rustic feel.  Their bicycle stamp has got to be one of my new favorites.  I colored it with copic markers and cut it out as well.  So cute!  The little pumpkins/hayrides sign is from their Autumn Word Block stamp which is also from their latest release.  I masked off part of the stamp, so just the words Pumpkins & Hayrides would show.  The "Enjoy the Journey" stamp comes from the Simple Phrases set.  I then added a little flower to the saying and there you have it!

Thanks for taking a minute to check out my latest creation!

Make it a great day!

Happy Fall Y'all

Two Paper Divas just released some new stamps that you are going to LOVE!!!  I feel extremely honored to be one of their designers.  I'm having a blast sharing my creations with you!  I used the new Wheelbarrow stamp along with one of my favorite sets, Fall is in the Air.  I wanted to incorporate the fall season into my card, so I decided to put pumpkins and gourds into the wheelbarrow.  Using some autumn patterned papers and a doily die cut, I popped the wheelbarrow so it would really stand out.
I then added some scalloped paper to the bottom of the card, a cute burlap bow with green stitching and an orange button.  

I just love decorating for fall.  My hubby and I just got our house all decked out.  Check it out!  Too fun!

I just couldn't stop with the card this week, so here's a little treat bag I made using another new stamp from Two Paper Divas.  It's called Autumn Block.  Who wouldn't like to get some goodies in this bag?  Maybe some of my white chocolate krispy cookies?
I started with a paper doily that I distressed to get rid of the bright white color.  I then added some rich colored fall patterned papers and some rust colored twine.  And finally, the new Autumn Block stamp.  I really love all the words and it fits for the entire fall season.  I colored the outside border of this stamp in a brown color and also colored the little pumpkin, leaf and acorn.  I also thought this stamp would be perfect for place cards at Thanksgiving.  Maybe I'll have to whip some up and share with you soon! :)

Thanks for taking a minute to check out Kirby's Kards!  I really appreciate it!

Yeah, it's officially Fall!  Time to be thinking of Halloween costume ideas!  We usually dress up our dogs for all the spooks to see that come around trick-or-treating!  They don't always like what I pick out for them, but they sure look cute!  I wanted to share a Halloween card I made using stamps from Two Paper Divas.  I started with a cute black polka dot die for the background on cream cardstock.  I then added an orange and black mini polka dot patterned paper and topped it with one of the Halloween Bingo Cards from Two Paper Divas.  There's several bingo card sayings to pick from and you just purchase them online and then print whatever you would like.  You can use them over and over and over!  I decided to color the word "Spooky" in orange to pop it.  I just love the Happy Halloween stamp set as there's so many fun stamps to pick from.  So, I used the moon, bat, "Happy Haunting" saying and the witch's hat.  Some orange ribbon, cream twine, a black star and a couple festive buttons and this card is just the thing for that special spook!
Thanks for checking out my blog today!  Be sure to click here to hop on over to Two Paper Divas for lots of inspiration and adorable stamp sets.

Lovin' this Cooler Weather

My husband and I took advantage of the beautiful weather and planted some mums Sunday afternoon.  Now, I just have to get out my fall decorations.  I just love all the rich colors!  Can't wait to get some hay bales, corn stalks, pumpkins and gourds to make our house a little more festive!  In keeping with the fall theme, I'm sharing a tag I made this week.  
I started with a tag I cut out of kraft paper.  I stamped three different leaves from the set "Fall is in the Air" by Two Paper Divas.  I then distressed the tag and added some cream colored burlap with a frame I cut from kraft paper as well.  I just love this stamp set from Two Paper Divas.  There's a ton of options with this set.  I decided to cut apart the saying for a little different look.  
I absolutely love these pumpkins!  You can cut them on the vertical lines and pop them for a layered look.  (Thanks Mel and Rene for sharing that with all of us gals!)  I then added some pearls, pom pom ribbon, greenery and some ribbon to the top.

Thanks for taking a few minutes to stop by Kirby's Kards!  I really appreciate it!  And, if you haven't started following Two Paper Divas you really should! :)

The Itsy Bitsy Spider

Hello Everyone!  I wanted to share a Halloween card that I made this week using stamps from Two Paper Divas.  They just released a bunch of new stamp sets that you are going to LOVE!!!  I started with one of my favorites, the Mason Jar stamp, and used one of their cute lids from Mason Jar Accessories #3.  Then I used the spider's web and the itsy bitsy spider that I stamped to look like he is hanging from the web.  From the same Happy Halloween stamp set, I used the bat and the BOO saying on a piece of notebook paper that I die cut.  
Since I love polka dots, I used some orange and white polka dot paper and a piece of black paper with little cats to make it festive.  A couple Halloween colored buttons, some black and white twine around the jar, black ribbon, black pom poms along the bottom of the card and I'm finishing it off with the Happy Haunting saying. 
 Thanks for taking a couple minutes to check out my Halloween card!  I hope it inspires you to create something spooky!

Make it a great day!

Pure Sweetness

Gumballs, Sprees, Jawbreakers...what is your favorite candy?  Wait until you see the latest stamp set released by Two Paper Divas!  They have created an adorable jar with multiple treats to go inside it.  Make sure you check out their new website and all of their new stamp sets.  Simply amazing!!!  I decided to use the round candies for this card.  So cute! 
 I started with a couple patterned papers in greens and a reddish color.  I colored the candies some shades of pinks, reds and greens and added a little glitter to each one for some sweetness and dimension.  I decided to color the jar lid a green color and used glossy accents for the jar top as well as adding some red twine and a pearl.  I like using the Happy Birthday stamp from TPD's Everyday Sentiments that has some confetti around it, since this card was just fun!  A couple pearls at the bottom and this card is ready for that special someone's birthday!
Wait until you see the back of my card...Two Paper Divas just released a stamp set that allows you to put your name on your creation.  I love all the phrases as I like to sign my name to each project I create, making it more personal.  The possibilities are endless with this set...you can add your special touch to whatever you create!
I hope this card has reminded you of all those yummy, sweet treats that we all grew up with!  Thanks for stopping by Kirby's Kards.

Thinking of You

I've been wanting to make a card using the Mason Jar stamp in a different way, so I decided to use the grass and dragonfly from God's Creation set from Two Paper Divas.  I just love this set as there are so many cards that could be made from it.  Especially, thinking of you or get well cards.  So beautiful!  
I colored the dragonfly with copics and added a couple of pearls that I colored brown.  Around the jar top, I used some cream twine and made a bow as well.  I just love polka dots, so I used that for the background.  Along the bottom of this card I used a little scallop trim in kraft paper and added two rows of lace above that.  To finish it off, I added three little flowers made from printed paper with some white buttons down the left side and the Thinking of You stamp from Two Paper Divas Banner #1.

I sure hope you are having a great week and that you take a little time to be creative!  Thanks for stopping by Kirby's Kards!

Ready for Fall

Of all the seasons, Fall would probably be my favorite.  I love the color of the trees, the walks with my hubby and the dogs, the decorations, wearing leggings with boots and the taste of a cup of hot cocoa.  In keeping with the fall theme, I wanted to share I card I made using the Mason Jar stamp, the Fall is in the Air stamp set and also the Everyday Sentiment set.  The stamps are all from Two Paper Divas, who just totally updated their website.  It's amazing!  So proud to be part of such a wonderful design team!
I used a dark brown printed paper for the background of my card.  I then layered an acorn patterned paper and a rust colored paper on top of that.  I used a scallop die in kraft paper to add a little extra to the side of the card.  Who says cards have to be square???  I just love the Mason Jar stamp and decided to fill it with acorns.  I stamped the acorn stamp from the Fall is in the Air set in both rust and brown papers.  I fuzzy cut each acorn and placed them in the mason jar.  I used pop dots on a couple for some dimension.  On the lid of the jar I added some twine and a little tag that I stamped "For You" (this is from the Everyday Sentiment set).  A few black buttons with twine on the right side, a bow with a twine bow and a leaf charm, some pearls and finally the Fall is in the Air stamp from Two Paper Divas.  All of their stamps can be purchased Here.  Be sure to check out their new site.
As always, thanks for visiting Kirby's Kards.

Sweet Treats

Well, I guess summer is over...the kids were headed back to school today.  Time is flying by.  I'm trying to stay ahead of the game and get some Halloween/Autumn cards made.  Check out the latest stamp from the Cupcake Celebration stamp set from Two Paper Divas.  It has mini candycorn on the frosting, soooo cute!  Who wouldn't like to receive a cupcake like that??!!
I used some wild patterned papers on this card, probably too wild!  But it is for Halloween, so I figured I was okay!  I trimmed two of the corners in orange paper and a few pearls.  I used some black seam binding for the bow and topped it with an orange button and twine.  For the bingo card, I used the Halloween set from Two Paper Divas as well.  You can purchase this set of nine bingo cards with different Halloween words at the top.  It's so easy, you just print them out once purchased and you use them over and over.  So cool!  
I decided to pop the bingo card with some orange scalloped paper behind it.  For the cute cupcake, I colored the candies with copic markers and just had to add some bling with the orange glitter on the cupcake wrapper!  I hope you have enjoyed this fun Halloween card and appreciate you stopping by Kirby's Kards today!

Make it a great day!

Sprinkled with Love

Wait until you see all the new stamps from Two Paper Divas!!!  They are super cute, you are going to LOVE them!  I do!!!  I used the latest cupcake set for my card (there are actually five different cupcakes in this set, so the possibilities are endless).  Check out this card I made using a circle doily die.
I started with two doily die cuts and added a patterned paper to the front using a circle die.  I then added a little banner out of patterned green paper with a few pearls and two cream twine bows.  I got to borrow copic markers from my friend, Linda, to color the sprinkles and the cupcake wrapper.  This was my first attempt using copics, so here ya go!  Thanks Linda!  
I just love the saying that is with the cupcake stamp set "Sprinkled with Love."  I put a few pearls on the sentiment as well.  I did pop the banner, cupcake and sentiment on the card.  I find myself always making cards the same shape, so I decided to change it up and make a circle card.  Thanks for taking a minute out of your busy schedule to check out Kirby's Kards.  I appreciate it!  And make sure you check out Two Paper Divas...their stamps are simply amazing!

Live with Promise

I had an absolute blast making this card using two stamps from Two Paper Divas.  I love the Pretty Posies stamp set...I've used it several times for cards.  My favorite part is using the pop dots to make the flower 3-D.  I stamped the flower in two sizes with a reddish color and I did two leaves as well.  I like to rough up the edges on my cards to give them a more rustic, vintage feel.
I love the colors in these papers with the corals, reds, limes and greens.  Using some reddish/white twine, I wrapped it around the top of the card a few times and added a double bow and then a cream twine bow on top.  I used a little round tag with a cutout heart and a couple pearls.  Using my notebook page die, I stamped one of the latest stamps from Two Paper Divas in a green color.  "Live with promise, Live with passion, Laugh with pleasure."  Love that!  You really have got to check out Two Paper Divas stamp sets.  They are so reasonable and they stamp perfect every single time.  And, they are also releasing new stamps every month, so be sure to keep checking for all the latest goodies! 
A couple butterfly pins and a little wooden flower that I colored the same green color, this card is ready to send to that special someone.
Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to check out Kirby's Kards.  I'm enjoying posting my projects for you and hope you like them too.

Simply the Best

My husband and I have been so very blessed this year.  We have sent several thank you cards and I seem to always need more!  So, when I saw this new saying by Two Paper Divas I thought it would be perfect for thank you cards.  You can purchase "You are Simply the Best" here. 
I used some polka dots, plaid and checkered papers from Simple Stories.  I love the Flower Silhouette stamp from Two Paper Divas and decided to stamp it in a dark green color.  Adding a paper clip, buttons, seam binding with a reddish twine and a scalloped trim, this card is ready to send to that special someone.  Thanks for taking a minute to stop by Kirby's Kards and check out my latest card.

Life is...

"Life is what happens to us while we are making other plans."  This is just one of the many new stamps from Two Paper Divas.  They have just released a bunch of quotes/sentiments that you will love for card making and other paper crafting projects. To me this quote means: if we spend all of our time planning and planning, life will fly by and we won't have had time to enjoy every minute of it.  And, all of those minutes are precious.  So, on that note check out the card I made.   
I used some patterned papers from My Minds Eye, of course I love the polka dots!  I also added some lace and a scalloped trim as well.  I wanted the saying to really pop, so I used pop dots and framed it with kraft paper.
Adding a couple buttons with some twine, pearls, a seam binding bow with twine and a heart, this card is almost complete.  Check out the little Faith tag on the bow.  It's also a Two Paper Diva stamp that is available here.

Thanks for taking a minute out of your busy day to check out Kirby's Kards.

Jam Packed with Love

Apricot, Strawberry, Grape, Blackberry, Raspberry, Peach...what's your favorite jelly?  Who doesn't love a warm, buttery biscuit with some homemade jam?  Yummy!  You've got to check out this little pocket I made filled with a few tags.  I used the latest stamp set, Jelly Jar, from Two Paper Divas for this project.  OMG!!!  So cute!  Here's a picture of the finished project.
Now, let me take you for a tour...
For the pocket, I used some polka dot printed papers, a doily, printable recipe card, seam binding and twine for the bow & a "handmade with love" ribbon along the bottom.  There's a tag on the pocket as well using the Jelly Jar stamp set.  The jar reads "Jam Packed with Love."  Love that!  I also used the "From the Kitchen of"stamp from the Jar Access #3 and the "Just for You" tag stamp is also from that same stamp set.
Here's some of the little tags I put inside the pocket.  I thought these could make cute bookmarks for recipe books or would be neat to put with a jar of jelly to give as a gift.  Anyway, there's several fun things to do with this project.

Thanks for checking out my blog!  If you have a minute, leave me a comment with your favorite jelly. My favorite is apricot.

Make it a great day!
