Homemade Wall Hanging made from Doiley!


Happy Good Friday!!!!
 
It is hard to believe it sneaked up on us like that! Here we can't wait for the Easter Bunny to arrive, more importantly we are remembering that Jesus was crucified and accended to heaven. It is hard to get Michael to understand this so it is worded in a way that he understands the very basics but will no doubtedly be able to understand more as he get older.
 
Speakin of Michael I would like to give you an update on Micahel's Sedated MRI... we will be heading across on May 22nd and they have given a surgery date but it turned out to be before the MRI date so obviously it needs attention, lol I will let you know!
 
 Taking the focus off Michael , todayI would like to put my oldest son in the spotlight! I made a wall hanging with Ryan when he was only a year and a half!
Look at those beautiful big blue eyes!!!!!

3D Background Using Strips of Stamped Paper

 
Happy Hump Day!!!
 
Today I am showing you my first sympathy card ever, I was having a looky through my card boxes over the weekend and noticed I had notta one! It is always nice to be able to go and reach for any card for any occasion when needed , unfortunately for sad occasions as well, you hope you will never have to reach for it but the fact remains it a part of life.
For my card I used "Deepest Sympathy" sentiment from the stampset
You can purchase these stamps here, Alley Way Stamps have the best font ever! 
 
 
 
This picture was really blurry and I manage to fix it a little , I didn't have time to go back and retake the picture but the next two came out great.
 
 
The background was made by stamping "boarder stamps" from Freshly Squeezed Stamps on red cardstock, I then cut into strips and inked around the edges. To give dimension I used 3D square adhesives to raise the first and third strip.
 

The whitish flowers I made with my new bottle of Recollection flower petals, I love them for they are the perfect size for cards! The single blue flower is from Wild Orchid Crafts
 


The spellbinders label and Hat Pin is from a package I bought from Christina's new shop over at Flower's Ribbon's and Pearls  
Christina's products has change my whole experience of card making.
 
The spirals in the flower cluster was simply made by cutting thin strips of paper with my paper cutter then using my quilling tool I rolled them and fluffed them out just a little.

CAS card using Soft Pencil Studio Stickers


 
Happy Monday!!!!!
 
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend!! We had a blast here at my house between having visitors, a day out in the snow sliding, snowball fighting  and the pleasure of munching out on peanut butter cookies and milk  when all was done. (Secretly I am happy the snow came back, shh!)
 
Today I am showing you a CAS card that I made using the cute bunny sticker from "Soft Pencil Studio's", they have the sweetest images!!! Again this card could be generic or used for Easter!
 
 

 
 
 
 I used my Tim Holtz piercing ruler to pierce holes and came up with this pattern using twine... I think I may be able to repeat it...I will have to write it down the next time.
 
 
 
I introduce the new Chef Michael who I let  take over my kitchen completely, he was so awesome to follow every direction!!!!
Take note of Michael's Chef Hat... he couldn't see himself being a chef without one, I agreed so let Michael choose what he wanted, he grabbed a ziplock bag and I was all for it!
Ignore the state of the kitchen, I was also making a pot of good o'le fashion chicken soup.
 
 

 
You did not see this , I repeat you did not see this, lol
 




 
 
Just look how proud he is!!!!  This was such a natural picture for I snapped at least 30 pictures trying to capture his expression when I knew he was just about done!!
 
 \

Here we go sliding coffee and all... oh yes gotta have my coffee
 


 
Michael just got me really good with a snowball
 
 
So of course  I get him back
 
 
Then we make up with hugs and kisses
 
 
and go inside to eat Michael's delux peanut butter cookies, mmmmmm!!!!
 
 


Have a super day!!!!
