Happy Monday Everyone! I hope everyone had a great weekend!! I did not do too much and just layed low for the most part since I have not been feeling to well. I did push myself to create something today to share with you here. I don't like to go to many days without posting.

I made this gift set for:

-today's CAS50-teal

-Friday's LSC255 (little treat box and card)

-the Our Creative Card corner challenge(Blue and Green Hues)

-Stamp Something
-Blue and white (I consider teal a hue of blue so I hope this qualifies)

-and FS154 featuring Anne (JDMommy). I cased this card from Anne
( I changed my stampset, added the text behind the image, the colors, and made the rectangle the ovals. I just loved all the embossing and the design of Anne's card. Congrats again Anne!)

Since this is my ultimate fave set of Stampin Up I just had to play some more and make it a gift set with the hydrangeas. I plan to give it to an elderly lady at our church who has been ill. She loves dark chocolate and flowers.

The template for the treat box is from these awesome new templates that the fabulous Leigh Ann Baird~Stamping with Annie B
~ started creating. I saw these little treat boxes that my dear friend and divine diva dt sister Kerri (from Cards by Kerri) made and I just had to get them!! They are so fun to create with!!! I used Leigh Ann's template Bag It Up!

Stamps: SU Bloomin Beautiful
Paper: Bermuda Bay, White, Taken With Teal
Accessories: SU button, gold cording, teal satin ribbon, nestabilities, embossing folders (Victoria and Swiss dots), oval nestabilities, sewing machine,
Template for the treat box from Leigh Ann Baird

Thanks for stopping by today!! I hope you enjoyed my creations!! Have a great day!! Thanks so much for your sweet comments on my creations as well as the inspiration you all give me on your blogs!!
