Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #101

This week's challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is Shaker Technique.....


Every year when the twins were really small we went to little Valentine's Day parties with the local twins club.  And every year I'd make some really cute little goodie box or bag filled with treats.  And every year I sit back and watch the tiny little hands tear right into my hand made creation....diving in for the candy.  So, here's my thought....let's make it easy and sweet with a nice little shaker card with candy.  I won't feel AS bad when they tear into this simple little card.  :)


On another note.....my 13 month old cutie pie learned how to walk yesterday!!  Time flies when you're having fun.  He was so proud.  He'd stop, laugh, clap and even dance.  I love this tiny little man!!




We took our first trip to Knott's last week.  The twins loved going on the big roller coasters.  Some of the kiddie rides they have to be under a certain height....so that meant they rode without me.  They thought that was pretty cool, too.  Here they are on a Camp Snoopy ride.




I'm off to the Stampin' Up! Leadership Conference today!!  I can't wait to kick up my boots in good ol' San Antonio, TX.

Happy Stamping,
Krista
