Some news to Share and Thank you very much Tag!

I have some personal news to share, for those of you that have been around my blog for a while know that we have a Grandpa Living in a VA Home in Georgia.  We received the sad news that he passed away yesterday. I am so blessed that we were able to see him the last time we were in Georgia, and for the time we all spent time together. We sent him many handmade cards which he proudly displayed in his room and I am very happy that he was able to receive the last card that I sent him for Halloween. Please pray for us as we mourn the loss of our Grandpa.


On a lighter note I have been making little tags to use inside the packages of the skittles I have been mailing out. Thank you to everyone that has purchased my handmade skittles! I am looking forward to seeing the crafty projects made with them!

I still have a giveaway going on HERE and you can purchase them HERE

Since the package is small a card was just too big so a tag is the perfect fit.

Here is my tag:




Leaf from Create A Critter
Tiny Leaves from a mini punch
 All papers/kraft are from my Scrap pile (Yah Me)
3 of my favorite supplies:
 Thank you very Much Stamp Docerela Creations
3 Girl Jam Crinkle Ribbon
Handmade Skittles DoubleClick Meadow
