Simply Poppies

Hello there,

I've been daydreaming of spring and can't wait to see the first sprouts appear in the garden.  Our snow is starting to finally melt :-)

Today's card was created using the Spellbinders Filigree Delight dies.  I just love the delicate filigree look and kept the card simple.

The poppies were stamped in StazOn Stone Gray ink and colored with markers with a blender pen.  StazOn is a permanent ink so it does not bleed when you use a blender pen.

A bow was created from cream lace trim with a flat back pearl.

The inside sentiment I've had for years and finally got around to inking it.

You can find all the supplies I used listed below.

Chocolate Strawberry Lip Balm

I hope you are having a fun filled weekend!  Today I have some Chocolate-Covered Strawberries Lip Balm to share with you.  It's so easy to whip up a small batch and during the winter my lips become so dry.  Yes, it is still winter here and we have snow on the ground.  

For these tubes I mixed beeswax, coconut oil, Vitamin E oil, dark chocolate oil and strawberry oil with a hint of mica for a delicious lip balm.  This was my first time using mica.  It adds a hint of shimmery color to your lips.  This particular one also has a bit of silver in it.  Remember, a little goes a long way.

The items I purchase when making my lip balms are unsweetened, do not use any nut derived oils, are vegan friendly and cruelty free, and are free of gluten, soy, alcohol and parabens.

Full of sweetness without the calories!

So pucker up!

I'm so happy to have tomorrow off.  I've never been much of a procrastinator, but I've been putting off organizing my closet and I think it's time to tackle the task.

Enjoy your day!
