bluebonnet pics

Just wanted to add a few pics of my cuties in the bluebonnets. I really wanted a family pic and one of the cuties together, but the weather wasn't cooperating and Ian didn't really like the bluebonnets.

Hip Hip Hooray, It's a Birthday Card

Hi there! Just wanted to post a cute birthday card I made for my niece whose birthday is in May. I have no idea what company any of the paper is from. The ink and stamp is from CTMH. My niece has a stuffed hippo that she carries around a lot, and the cake is going to be a hippo. So, I thought it would be perfect to make a hippo card. I pretty much cased this hippo card over on the Share ~ Inspire ~ Create blog. I just used different paper, and changed my hippo up a bit. Let me know what you think.

Here is a close up of the hippo.

A birthday project

I just wanted to share this with you. I made this one for my sister-in-law, and I made one pretty close to this one for my mom for her birthday. The idea came when I saw Lauren Meader's Timeless Template idea here. If you haven't checked out her blog it rocks. You should take a look here. Anyway, I thought I could make my own template. So, that is what I did. Not as good as her template, but it's pretty close. Here is a picture of the front of the template. the pocket holds items from a beginner's sewing kit I picked up at Wal-Mart.

Here is a close up of the flower. I stamped a flower from the Close To My Heart My Acrylix Set called Flower Child. I then used my water brush pen and used the same ink diluted in the lid of the ink pad to color the inside of the flower image. To give it a little bling, I used Liquid Glass to outline the image. I then covered it with Martha Stewart glitter.

This is a picture of what was included in the inside of the template. These are fat quarters that I purchased from Wal-Mart.

Hope you like my project. Thanks for looking.
