Monday Montage #41

        Hello there and welcome back for the bi-weekly Monday Montage blog hop.  Tonight is our first night back in a few weeks.  I'm happy you've joined us!  Did you arrive here from Cathy's blog?  If not- be sure to use the BACK button at the bottom of this post to see her awesome project!

 Tonight's project is a simple 4-1/4" square card.  I sometimes get bored creating the same card size over and over so I figured I'd change it up a little. This is what I came up with.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you will continue around the hop by clicking the NEXT button to see what the amazing Dara Gloden has to share with you tonight.  I'm sure it's gorgeous!

Happy Hoppy Easter!

Happy Easter!  If there's one thing I love about the holidays- it's creating cute little treats to give to my favorite peeps. I'm always looking for fun and creative ways to package my gifts and the treats below were a perfect fit!  

 I absolutely adore everything involving a mason jar so when I came across these on Pinterest- I knew what I had to do!   I made a total of 36 of these adorable little Easter mason jars.  The lucky recipients- my co-workers and the doctors that I work for.  Thankfully everyone loved them!  I even had a few left over and was able to share those with my daughter's co-workers.  
I couldn't just fill the jars and not add some stamping to them so I made little tags to fit the lids.  For Peeps' Sake was the perfect stamp set to use!    Aren't they adorable?
Thanks for stopping by!
