Today I made a card for the Free For All challenge over at  We were to make a Tent Topper card.  I followed the tutorial link that was provided and lets just EASY!!!  I need a few thank you cards, so that is what I chose for my sentiment.

I used a wonderful and versatile digital set called Modern Flowers by Studio 313.  You can find this set at  I colored the image with my copics and went with the color scheme in the Springtime Vintage DP.

Air Fresheners


Today I am posting two pictures of some DIY air fresheners.  I found this fantastic idea on Pinterest.  You can click on the following blog which explains just how easy this project is!
I found the short/wide mason jars at Walmart.  There were four in the pack.  I used lemon essential oil in one and orange essential oil in the other.  They smell soooo good!  Add some design paper and a few embellishments and you now have a darling air freshener! 

These would be cute to give as a hostess gift, a birthday gift or a just because gift!!!  I plan on making many many more!!!  Thanks for stopping by today!!!
