February '12

Happy Birthday Brody!!
  My nephew turned two last week and I was able to go and enjoy the family party!! 
Why are masculine cards so tough?? Wanting to keep it simple but fun.  

My husband picked the present of course!!I knew he would love it...

He will be all set for outside once the weather gets warmer.  We balled up wrapping paper so he would have something to put in the shovel.  

He loved his mom's Chocolate cake and must have told her 4 plus times.  

I ran the Big circle thru the embossing folder separate and used dimensionals to add the pop.  

Have a great day getting Crafty!!

Here is a little treat that I gave my club ladies.  I got the original idea from Mary Fish, Thanks Mary!!  She also has a video tutorial for that shows one version of this.  I just loved it!!

I have two Nieces now and my 1st thought was ohhh  can't you see a little 4 year old walking around with this?? Great little party favor.  I filled my little treats with full size chocolate bars(not pictured here) that where wrapped in DSP as you can see I made one special for each person.  Yes, I tailored each wrapper to the person I was giving it too. Just a small personal touch.

Have a great day getting Crafty!

Operation Write Home Sketch #109

With today's sketch I took a few liberties.  I hope you like my variation!
What do you think about the Spritz effect?? 

Here I used three Fancy Flower punched out one Poppy Parade (bottom) and two Calypso Coral smooshed, added the Large and small Flowers from Boho Blossoms for the final effect.

Here is a better view, here you can see that I scored and folded the 'ribbon'  saying for the 3D effect.
