Bird Punch as a stencil...

I ordered this bird punch from Stampin' Up as soon as it was available to order--it is so fun!  Here, I used the negative space from the punch and daubered ink in it.  I also used the punched branch.  We made this at the make & take this weekend and it was simple yet sweet.  And it didn't even need any glitter!
Thanks for looking!

Well. I messed up!

That's what I get for playing with templates!  My other one disappeared darn it!!!  Don't have time to fix it--sorry about this!!!!

A Sympathy card...

It seems that lately I can't keep a stockpile of Sympathy cards--so made another one for my stash!  We are making this at the make & take the weekend, too.  I have to admit that I added glitter to the center of the large and small flowers after I took the pic!  I clear embossed the large flower and sponged over it.  And you may be able to tell that I used the "spritzer" tool with Soft Suede marker to get the speckled look.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Goofy Chick

I think he wishes he was a bunny!  I got the idea for this from a card I saw on Stampin' Up's Stampers Connection and changed it up a bit.  The things on the right side are made with the slit punch.  We will be making this at the make & take this weekend--there are some spots still open--email me if you want to join us for Creative Therapy!

Fun Fun Fun!!!!!!!

FINALLY a new post!! (right, Theresa?--and you are SO right!--altho that door was so magnificent :-) ((Theresa ALSO had a magnificent door!)
SO, what we have here is a FUN pic of things that Tammy and I made at the Craft Fair!  Just about everything is punched.  It looked really Springy, bright and adorable all together--(and it was snowing outside that day-----that was so odd.
Thanks for checking!  Have been working on cards today that I will post next...

And the winning door decoration is.....

Our door!  From our GREAT Spring Fling weekend of crafting at the Embassy--I had the idea of the bears from the Charmin commercial flinging springs and Sharon took it from there and quilted this FANTASTIC tree--even painted the background!  One bear has an eye patch (for me) and the other has an arm sling (for her shoulder)...I have to admit it turned out pretty darn cute!  BUT the competition was strong and we only won by one vote--you should've seen how awesome the other doors were!  We all had so much fun!  MArk your calendars for this Oct. 8-10 for another great weekend of crafting!

Flower Die Cut Garden Gloves!

Aren't these fun?  What a GREAT Mother's Day or Easter gift!  I made these to sell at an upcoming Craft Fair and will tie them up with a packet of seeds--what do you think?  It's amazing all you can do with fabric and die cuts!
I'm sooooo excited about our Spring Fling weekend at the Embassy starting tomorrow!  I've been getting all the things together that I plan to work on...I'm sure it will take me a hundred loads of stuff before I get it all in the room!  My roomie, Sharon, and I have been working on our door decoration for the contest and I'll take a pic of it when we get it up--she's an awesome sewer/quilter!!
When I get back, I'll post some of the projects and pics from the weekend!  Hope YOU have a good one, too!

Flower die cut on Easter Bonnet

These fabric flower die cuts are so fun!  And there's so many things you can do with them--isn't this a sweet Easter bonnet?  I just added SU large gros grain ribbon and die cut flowers with batting and a pink brad.  Now if I only had a little girl to give it to!  Don't think my 23 year old would go for it!!!  I think I may try to sell it in an upcoming craft fair.....
