Cookies & Cakepops!

Well hello and HAPPY FRIDAY to you!!!  It is Good Friday today, and I do thank God daily for all the blessings in my life......
I've been busy baking, cookie decorating and cake-popping the past few days!!  I enjoy this all so much, but it does take time!!  Lots of time!!  The results are yummy and oh so cute!!!

Here are my finished goodies:

These cute bunny face cake pops are funfetti vanilla inside, with added sprinkles!

And these wacky chick pops are lemon inside!  Totally yummy!!  I also decorated a few in the background, with jelly bellys and sprinkles, they are just so festive, I kinda just like looking at them  :-) 

Then I out-lined all the cookies, I am in crafty heaven when I do this.........ahhhhhhhh.

These cookie cutters are from Sweet Dani B (so are the sheep and chicks).  They ARE the cutest, and these are nice and big, and easy to decorate!!  I followed Sweet Dani B's decor ideas, and used the jelly bellys!!  Can these bunnies in the cracked egg get any happier or cuter???

So bright and colorful, and the jelly bellys add a little different texture to the cookie, and I must say, I kinda like it!

And here is Peter Cottontail!

And some sweet little bunnies, ummmm, most of these bunnies lost their ears, I don't think I will use this cutter next year!!  Their ears broke off too easily!!

More of Peter Cottontail, all dressed up and ready for Easter!

These chicks/birdies are so darn cute!  This cookie cutter along with the sheep below are from Sweet Dani B.  The chicks are just iced and sprinkles are added!!  Yum!

And I just love these sheep.....They're kind of primitive looking and just adorable!!  On the Sweet Dani B website, she added the marshmallows!  Some of my sheep are just sprinkled with jimmies, one has the large sugar chunks, there are marshmallows, and one has pina colada jelly bellys cut in half as the added texture!

Thank you for stopping by and checking out my blog today!  The past couple of days were so fun creating all these goodies!  I love all the little details!  I shipped some up to my kids and grandkids, I hope they make it without breaking!!  And my family will enjoy the rest of them on Easter Sunday.
If you are interested in the recipes for the cookies or the icing, leave me a comment, and I will post the recipes!!  Have a lovely Easter!!  He is Risen!!

Sequins & Stamping (& cute Easter tags!)

Hi friends!

I decided to participate in the March 2013 Blog Hop for Papertrey Ink.  The challenge is to use "sequins".   Do you remember those?  I use to use them a lot when I made felt Christmas ornaments, and lately they've been appearing on clothes!  They add a little sparkle to everything, but I had never used them with my card-making!
And I didn't use them on cards, but I did use them on some cute Easter tags!

I started with Pretty in Pink and Pool Party cardstock....

For these tags I used the Papertrey Ink Tag Sale #3 die.  It has a cute circular reinforcement to make sure the ribbon hole doesn't rip when you tie your tags on to items.

The stamp set I used is super cute!!  It's Papertrey Ink's Scrambled Eggs Stamp Set.  This bunny is glittered all over, and the sequins are actually a light pink.  I think I like them used as embellishments!

I used turquoise blue sequins on this cracked egg.  And they're easy to cut with scissors, so I was able to shape them to the egg.

I also glittered the border of this tag, Easter can be such a cute crafting holiday!

Love this bunny stamp, it's just the cutest!!

I really enjoyed this challenge, and will be adding sequins to my stamping projects!  You can't have too many embellisments or too much sparkle!!

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, now I have to run and add this to the link up before it's closed!!

Have a nice evening!!

Bunny Time!

Hello Friends!

Today I'm going to share 4 cards I made using Papertrey Ink's $5 stamp set called Polka Dot Parade #1.  There is also a matching die for the bunny!

I just love this mini stamp set, the bunny is so cute and perfect for your Easter or Spring cards!

Here they are:

Yes, pink grass, sprinkled with glitter, and a yellow fluffy bunny tail!

Nice and bright bunnies, feels like spring!!

I think this is the only "perfect" bow I have ever done!! :-)

Love this color combo, Crumb cake and Primrose Petals.

And a fluffy tail on this one too!

I hope you enjoyed this little bunny hop today!  Thank you for stopping by today!!

Kristy :-)
