Wedding card and chocolate eggs
My cousin got married a few weeks ago. I'm a little late with my gift! Their colors were Clover Meadow green, Bamboo, and Colonial White. I was having a hard time coming up with a card, but I added Taffy and I think I finally like it :). It was a beach wedding so I thought the Taffy would go well. I used the June Stamp of the Month (which I love!). So my challenge to you this week is to come up with a project using the following colors: Clover Meadow, Dessert Sand, Taffy, and Colonial White. I had fun, I hope you do to! Email me your projects for a chance to win a hand made gift!
I spent the last weekend in Miami. I hadn't seen my parents since their accident, so I was looking forward to spending some time with them. My grandparents were also in town from Brasil, so it was nice to see them. My grandmother brought me one of the most original craft ideas I've seen in a long time! It was a chocolate egg. That does not sound original, but I thought it was! What my cousin does is carefully break only a tip off a real egg. She disinfects the shell,
decorates it, then fills it with chocolate. The only downside is that you have to break the beautiful decoration to get to the chocolate :(. But check out these works of art!
