Marc’s Birthday Card

I made this card for my Brother-in-law. His birthday was yesterday. I used Maine Blueberry DSP and the Big Birthday Candle, which I think is on sale starting today, and also the Cute & Curly stamp set.  

Check out the cards we made at Patty’s meeting

Aren’t these cards so cute? I can’t decide if I like the snow spring card the best or the Flight of the Butterfly’s more. The spring card we used the Snow wheel inside the card and the 1 3/4″ circle punch to cut the spiral to hold our snowflakes that are Sizzix dies. And we also used the felt snowflakes that are in the Holiday Mini. Wasn’t going to order those babies. Now of course I need them. On the Butterfly card we made cattails.  Don’t you love how we did the cattails? I would of never thought to use the slot punch for the cattails. The grass is from Inspired by Nature, and the ribbon is Kiwi Kiss striped grosgrain. We also used the Curly Label punch for the saying. The last card we made uses the Eastern Blooms and I just realized I forgot the saying. We used the new Filigree brads with a Rhinestone brad in the middle. I love the Kiwi Kiss/Vanilla satin ribbon too. 

Jocelyn’s 3rd Birthday

I made these treats for my oldest Granddaughter’s Birthday. She turns 3 on October 1st. Jocelyn is going to take these to day care and share with her friends. I had some Pocket Notes left over from the last mini catalog (I think) and I used the retired stamp set, Pretty Princess.  Last year at Halloween I found these candy corn that were pink & purple and thought they would be cute for our ginger bread houses we make every Christmas, so these are left over and they go perfect with the suckers and the pail that I found at Target in the $1 section. For the pail I used 4 large eyelets with the Crop-a-Dial and ran our new Pink Pirouette (I wish I could remember how to spell that color without getting out the stamp pad or looking in the catalog.) through each eyelet and tied a bow. Added some more ribbon on the handle. Turned out pretty cute, don’t you think? I tried to turn the 1st photo around, but it won’t stay turned around when I go to post to my blog.
