Hey Everyone!! It’s been a busy last few days in Utah at the Stampin’ Up Convention! Having a ball meeting up with old friends and meeting new ones- the stamping community is just so fun! I will be posting some fun stuff in the next few days. But I wanted to share this cute little treat with all of you wonderful subscribers to my blog. You all make my day when You leave a comment or jump on board… blessings to you all:)
Remember those fun little colorful circles I used last week with the SU Oh, Hello set? Well, here are the favors I mentioned in my post. I made these for my wonderful stamping crew with SU Mixed Bunch.

INK: SU Bermuda Bay, SU Daffodil Delight, SU Melon Mambo
PAPER: SU Whisper White
TOOLS: SU 1 in. Circle Punch, SU Secret Garden Framelits, SU 3/4 in. punch, SU Bitty Butterfly punch
* I used Rite-Aid brand peanut butter cups that had a solid gold covering without a brand name stamped on them like a Reese’s has- I actually liked them much better than a Reese’s- they tasted more like a peanut butter melt-a-way! Rolos would be perfect too…just find a circle punch that fits a candy you have!
What do you get when you punch out the middles of the flowers from the SU Mixed Bunch set so you can insert a piece of candy for a favor? I’ll tell ya…a bunch of cute little circles that inspired me to create a card for Laurie Willison’s MUSE Card Club # 24 !

Happy 1st Anniversary to Dynamic Duos Challenge Blogspot #52!
I celebrated with them by using Challenge #42 Garden Green and Daffodil Delight to create a little gift for someone. This water bottle with lemonade is the perfect way to say I am thinking of you or thankful for you…maybe for a teacher, a bus driver, your postal worker- think of all the people you interact with on a daily or monthly basis. I picked Dasani water because it has a Garden Green colored lid;)
And, CASology #44 this week is BLOOM, and this project is so CAS I am going to share it over there too!!

Ever have one of those afternoons where you actually only create one card? Somehow, I played with this for hours- although I was doing a little laundry in between! I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches # 81 and the Dynamic Duos # 48 colors. It’s got a little bit of this and a little bit of that- bees, honeycombs, and flowers all together in one card;)

Last week, my MIL and I took my daughter to lunch in her college town and stopped to visit my MIL’s dear sister who is in an extended care facility there. She thought it would be great to bring her sister a cappuccino so we stopped at Dunkin’ Donuts. Of course, I liked the packaging of the coffee even more than the drink itself so I stuffed the coffee sleeves in my purse before we finished our drinks. And onto my craft table they went when I got home.
The Friday Mashup Challenge # 100 allows the participants to choose any of the past challenges to create a project. I spent some time perusing the challenges and imagine my excitement when I came across #30- a sketch challenge named Renew, Recycle, Reuse!
Here is what came from that piece of “garbage” using the colors from Dynamic Duos # 43:
