You know how Pablo Picasso had a blue period where all of his paintings were done in shades of blue, and then he had a rose period then cubism. Well, I had what I would like to refer to as a "Mat Stack 5 period". You see it started out innocently enough with this cupcake birthday card.

I have been eyeing the Papertrey Ink's tea for two set for a while. Last week I finally broke down and bought the stamp set and the die. I've had alot of fun playing around with this set. I tried a couple of ideas by ended up with this. I tried to give it an "Alice in Wonderland" kind of feel to it. I wish I had a "very merry unbirthday to you" stamp, it would have work perfectly.
Here is a close up of the detail.

Well, over the weekend I was able to finish a project I started a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to send my sister an Easter box. It all began with Papertrey Ink's Egg Hunt stamp set and the work that Betsy Veldman did with this set, amazing!!! So a few weeks back I created this card and slowly but surely I have been working on the other little items. I had alot of fun putting together all of the bits to the box and I really like how the whole thing turned out. I was able to finish everything and pack it up and best of all it should be showing up on my sister's door step today.
Enough with the chatting here are some pictures.
This is everything that went into the box. Since the box would be sitting outside a door in the heat I decide it would be best not to use chocolate, so I end up with some gummy bunnies, candy buttons, and peeps. The cookbook is something I have been meaning to give her since it has some great stuff that is fast and easy for one person.
Here are some of the details.

Since I don't have anything new I thought I would dig into my archives to find a project I did. So since it is my oldest birthday weekend I have a birthday invite I did for my his birthday party 2 years ago. I love using digital scrapbooking supplies for Birthday invites and then printing them at costco. I find it a time/money saver. For these I printed them out as 5x7s.

Sorry guys that it has been quiet here at sunny with a chance. I'm in kind of a stamping funk. All of the cards I have made lately are looking the same, so I stepped away from it a bit. Plus soccer season has started and it's eating up most of the weekends for the next month. I hope to get back soon. Papertrey Ink's current countdown is starting to get me excited so I think the funk will be gone by mid month.
