Dad's Personalized B'day Card! Used a "wobble" (see link)!

(I used a "wobble" under the can!  Jiggles!)

Once again, a personalized card that was so much fun to make!  This one is for my Dad.  He wanted a deer "bleat" call can for his birthday and hunting adventures.  What I realized is that it's a version of the old fashioned cow cans we had as kids!  Turn them upside down and they moo!  Dad's is a little bit more sophisticated (hence the comment on the inside of the card).

Personalized Cards - A Favorite!

Making a card, with a theme, for a specific person has become one of my passions!  This picture is of my Mom, who didn't want her picture taken.  Well much to her dismay, I kept it and created this card.  It was so much fun creating the bubble, "I can't face another birthday!".  Also, she loves birds so I made sure I included a few (thanks to my Cricut!).  A "Happy Birthday" stamp ("Stamps of Life") was the perfect finishing touch.  So glad I could bend the stamp to make it compliment the arch of the branch!  Fun!  Happy birthday Mom!

Milk Boxes & Pinwheels


I wanted to come up with a couple of gifts for my best friend's daughters.  They are young and I just wanted something fun and small.  This is what I came up with -- milk cartons and pinwheels!  Such a fun project that didn't take a lot of time.  I coordinated the paper from the carton with the paper for the pinwheels.  Turned out so cute!  Filled them w/ Goldfish crackers and they're ready for delivery!
