Thank you to all our Troops

I made this card to send in a box of goodies to my son stationed in the army over in Iraq. I colored it with copic markers and I hope he likes it.

Ant cupcakes

We made these cupcakes for my step daughters baby shower. Her theme was Teddy Bears Picnic so how perfect were these little ants????? We used chocolate covered pomegranites and cake icing in a tube. Everyone thought they turned out just to cute.
I made this card with another Magnolia stamp. Like I said.. these are just the cutest stamps.

This is a card I made with my new Magnolia Stamp. I just love these little images. I colored it (of course) with my copic markers. I used the Happy Hauntings cartridge for Beware.
Thanks for looking.

Butterfly Baby

I saw these dolls displayed at Craft Warehouse that they had decorated with flowers and moss. I thought I could do that myself so I gave it a shot. My sister has the Anne Geddes dolls so I thought this would be a perfect additon for her birthday. I got a wood block from the dollar store and covered the block with these fall leaf picks from Michaels for .99 cents a piece. I found a pack of butterfly wings that I an using for our daughters wedding in September so I glued one of those on the back of the doll.
Remember the value of a gift may only be $10, but the value of a hand made gift from the heart is priceless.

My first diaper wreath

My daughter is having a baby shower this weekend and I made this with the diapers left over from the diaper baby. I used the New Arrival cricut cartridge for the bottle and onsie and the Create a Critter for the frog. Don't you just love the frogs big googly eyes? This is the very first diaper wreath I have made and I think it turned out fairly nice. It is great to have something you see in your head turn out the way you thought.

My husband wanted me to make a card for his sisters birthday. He had no ideas of what I should do but said he knew I could come up with something. He did know she liked blue so I hope she likes what I came up with.
