teacher appreciation gifts

A dear friend asked me to create three little explosion boxes for her kid’s kindergarten teachers – I think it’s such a cute and easy way to say thank you. Those boxes are so fast and easy to make but still look super cute, don’t you think?

a wonderful color – challenge

Greetings from my wonderful, relaxing spa – weekend .. I’m having a wonderful time doing absolutely nothing 😀

I love peonies and Persian buttercups so this inspirational photo/color challenge is perfect for me

even though I did not use a flower stamp simple to peonies, I used a flower stamp 🙂 I’ve been obsessed with flowers lately but I guess that’s because Stampin‘ Up! produces so many wonderful sets – I’m in heaven 🙂
