March Pals Hop: Spring Time

Welcome friend and visitors! If  you've hopped over from Kalshelia's blog, I am stop number 17 on the Pals Hop  and you are almost at the end of  the road. I am sure you have found a lot of beautiful projects and inspirations for your Spring and Easter projects, and wait until you see what Carla have in house for you!  Your comments are SO VERY APPRECIATED!!! Please, leave some love along your way!
As for past hops, I have prepared three projects also.  I do not want to make this a practice because I not always have the time, the energy or the inspiration to do the three, but I always end by doing them, but well, I was happy doing them for all of you so here they are.

 I made the card, the embellished candle and the matching box for the candle, all using papers from the Sweet Pea paper pad from the Occasion Mini that I find a Super-Duper Value.  All those beautiful two sided papers!!.  I found the project pretty spring-y, after all, in Puerto Rico, were I live, we have no really marked Seasons, all year long it is green and warm! But my husband....he told me the colors were not Spring-like.  I really appreciate his sincerity but I already had made  my projects...so, I had to made two bonus projects just to ease my conscience and please him, after all, if I ask for his opinion, I should be able to hear what he has to say, don't you think?  Both ways, you win, more projects to get you inspire no matter how you visualize Spring!

The card is made with papers in the free paper pad "Welcome Neighbor" from the SAB set, bitty buttons and gross grain ribbon.
The treat box was made with the BigShot machine, the Pillow Box die, satin ribbon, oval punch, "Ocho Saludos Geniales" stamp set, Word window punch, Designer label punch, Sweet Pea DSP
