This has nothing to do with this blog but I had to post a pic of our new grandbaby. He is the only boy so far out of 4 grandchildren.

I made this for my mother using a real scrabble game and tiles. I cut the board to fit in a wooden tray I painted her favorite color. I found some wooden shapes at Michaels, layed out my words and placed the angels on the board. My mom loves to play scrabble and absolutely loved this tray.

I made this card for my son who is expecting their 2nd child, a little boy this time.
I found this pic on a free digi stamp site called Arthursclipart.org. When I saw it I knew I had to download it. I would appreciate your comments and let me know what you think.

My sister loves Seahorses and since her birthday is next month I thought I would make this card. I downloaded a coloring book page, sized it in Paint and then printed out on my computer. I used my new Copic markers and colored it in. I think for my 2nd attempt at a digital stamp it turned out nice. I love how you can create shadows with these markers.
Thanks for looking and leaving comments.

Thought I would show you just how creative my dear hubby is. He made these from printing out a coloring book page. He traced the design on the back of the picture glass with a black paint pen and then filled in the deisgn with model paint. We put scrapbook paper ( see extra comes in handy for everyone) behind it. It has a great 3D effect.
Time to post something a little different. I printed out coloring book pages and then drew them on painted canvas. I then painted the design and outlined with black paint pen. They hang on the walls in the spare room for the grand kids. I think Eeyore is my favorite. Not to bad for hand drawn home decor. I painted the canvas with your basic acrylic paints.

This is a gift card set I made. I used my cuttlebug to do the embossing on the pink paper. I just love the way the colors came together.
The box I madewith heavy cardstock and covered with the same paper and flower designs to match the cards. I added some brown ribbon and made a bow for the front.
Let me know what you think and thanks for looking.

I made this card using one of my cricut cartridges and a noel stamp I got from the crafty store in their dollar bin. SCORE!! I added some green and white striped ribbon and tied in a bow. I ran the light green layer through my cuttlebug snowflake folder.
These are some little bunny boxes I made for my co-workers. My husband saw them and thought they were so cute I needed to make about 12 more for him to take to work. It truly looked like my little bunnies were multiplying all over the place. I filled them with easter grass and some bite size candies.

This is a glass block I made for my oldest sister for Christmas this past year. I used a vinyl saying that I got from the craft store and put it on the glass block. I filled it with metalic flaked angel hair and added a small string of lights. It looks great when it is lit.
I made these cards two simple cards for my sister and her daughter last year. I make a card every year and send it to them. I made them with my cricut machine. Thank you my dear hubby for that awesome Christmas gift.Another Halloween card made with the Wild Card cartridge from Provo Craft. I just love the jewel eyes on the spider.
Here is a set of cards that I made for as a Christmas gift. I even made the little envelope. I am following later with a picture of the box I am going to attempt to make. Hope it turns out Ok.
Well here is the scallop purse I made to hold the cards above. I think for my first attempt it didn't turn out to bad. The idea came from Mona at cupcakescreations.blogspot.com.
