Hello Crafty friends, I hope you are having a great hump day! Hubby's CAT scan was a wild one yesterday! First off he has to drink that chalky drink because they use the dye on him. Secondly, he got back there and the technician hooks up his IV, turns around to work on something else and when she turned back to him there was his blood all over the floor! The tubing had a crack in it letting the blood pool to the floor. Thirdly, while having his arms up and over his head, his face turned very red, which scared the technician so she called the doctor in. Hubby thinks that he just pinched off an artery or something like that. Anyway the doctor looked over him and let him go. I was waiting in the waiting room wondering what was taking so long. Well I found out when the technician walked him back out. She explain to me what had happened and then was going back to scrub up the blood. So glad she turned back around and they didn't drain his blood out of him!!!  Now we will wait to see what the scan shows.

It is my turn to post over at Cardz TV Gallery today. I recently had a SU party and I wanted a little thank you gift to place in the bags of my orders. So I made these cute bunny boxes on my Explore. I found it on the CTHM Artiste cartridge. I cut them at 7 inches, and I put 3 pieces of candy in them, a mint and 2 Hershey Kisses. On the spring color ones, I just stamped my "thanks" directly on the box, but for the white and black ones that wouldn't work, so I cut a tag out and placed my thanks on it instead. Aren't they dear?! The Cardz TV stamp set that I used was Heartfelt Wishes. I used the "many thanks" sentiment and just cut the "many" off. I can still put the stamp back together to stamp the whole sentiment if I so choose to. 






My next project is some boxes for Easter for my Grandchildren, still have to make another yet. I used my Explore once again with some Lori Whitlock files. My first time cutting SVG files and I have to say that I am loving using other files too! For these cute boxes, I used the CardzTV stamp set Easter Punnies, Birds and Bees and Easter Blessings. I stamped on a top note styled tag and placed it on the back of the boxes where I will sign "love papaw and grandma". These little boxes are just adorable and I will be filling them with some candy.

Thanks for take time out of your day to visit my little ole blog. I certainly love having you come by and your comments always make my day. Crafty hugs, Brenda

Now these hun are seriously stinking cute! I love them!
Would love to be able to create something like that but I don't understand the electronic die cutting machines, lol!
Hope they really looked after your DH huni. I'm very queasy and I've fainted at the sight of blood,really wimpy I am lol!
I wanted to let you know I've not been blogging much on my card art blog. I'm playing and learning mixed media techniques on my other blog.
I wanted to say sorry for not visiting much either as I've been laid up with my back and the MM stuff takes a lot longer to create because I'm using paint a lot and I prefer to let it dry slowly.
Going to have a good look at what I've missed whilst I'm here - hope you have a lovely week Karen xx

The Easter treat boxes are the cutest ever, and I love how each has a different color & bunny on top! The sentiments are adorable on the grandkid's treat boxes too! Nice job on all of them!!

MaryH said...

What a sweet way to say thank you to your SU party guests. These are simply adorable, and aren't you clever to be learning how to use your new toy so brilliantly. The critters you've made for the grands are just darling, and I love each one of 'em. Lucky you to have all these littles to make such cute things for (AND to know how to do it!). TFS & glad that all the hospital stuff ended with no lasting or bad results. Hugs MM
