Lauren's Birthday Card

Hi! Here is a card I designed for Lauren for her birthday. Mom and Dad gave her this one. You can also see some more of that crinkle ribbon.
This little box turned out so pretty...

Mom is using it to store her soldered charms. Love that!

Paper Doll Dresses for Mom

I was looking for paper dolls for my mom when I was inspired by a card here. I called Mom and asked her to look through her stash and find some cute paper doll baby doll dresses. She asked why and I told her she would have to wait to find out. Here are the cards I made for Mom for part of her birthday gift:

In these closeups, you can get a good look at the crinkle ribbon I made.

I used the "tea-dyed"on these. Although it's not really tea dyed, I used spray mist on it. I absolutely love it and it's fun to make! The seam binding starts out white and crisp. It seems to take color very well. I've created some other colors with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. I'll show some cards later using other colors.

Happy Birthday, Mom!

Aren't You Glad You're A Modern Woman?

We had a great time this weekend - Lauren was here! We celebrated her and my mom's birthdays. Mom's birthday is April 15th (yes, tax day) and Lauren's is the 16th. I'll post more birthday cards later in the week. I made this card for my dad to give to mom.
I think the little boy is adorable, ringing the doorbell hiding flowers behind his back.
I love this corset ad...aren't you glad we're modern women and we don't have to wear corsets? However, she is adorable all dressed up for roller skating.

Debbie is planning a party at Sparkles on May 14th in the evening. She wants her customers to have a chance to meet me. I'll probably send out invites...even though most of you know me, it would be a great time to see Debbie's beautiful jewelry. The vintage Swarovski crystals are my favorite. I have several pairs of earrings made with them. Mark the date on your calendar. I will have some new items and I would love to see you!

Hi! You would not believe how hard it was to get a good picture of this card! I'm not sure why... as it is, the closeup is better than the full shot.

Sometimes I'm convinced my camera has a mind of its own. This card is a great size (about 3 1/2 x 7 inches), as I remember. My friend, Mika, loved this card and wanted one to frame for her daughter, Bailey's, bedroom. They gave it to her for her birthday as part of a more grown up room . The Dream card looks great floating in a black frame. Great idea, Mika!

Cute Little Bunny

Hi! Hope you had a wonderful Easter. This darling little bunny box was a gift from Dennis. Isn't it cute? We think it may be from the 1930's, based on its crackle glaze and the black and gold. It has no marks at all, so we're just guessing.

The postcard is postmarked April 1909 from a mother in Massachusetts to a son in New Hampshire. She talks about him making maple sugar and that she bought Easter cards a little late. Dennis found both of these at a local antique store. Don't you think this is a darling Easter gift?

Happy Easter!

Dennis made a coconut cake today for Easter, so we had Mom and Dad over to help us eat it. Yummy! I love the taste of coconut, but don't like to eat coconut... yes, that's a little wierd. I just can't stand those little flakes! We grind it up and use coconut milk. It just tastes wonderful!

This little chocolate bunny is created with my Cricut and so is the little scallop that sits underneath him.
I think this is exactly how a chocolate bunny should be divided. Don't you?

I love this girl in the egg. Love the pink, yellow and blue bow combination.

And then of course, she's surrounded with beautiful fine glitter. I hope you have a wonderful Easter. Glad you could stop by!
