Without further ado:
Illness breeds crafting productivity. 🙂 I was sick with some nasty stomach bug, but managed these projects:
This is a birthday card for my sister’s 14th birthday. PPs are “Grandma’s Wallpaper, HP 393” (Hambly) and the green is from Target’s dollar bins. 🙂 Ribbon is from the “Uptown Green” (flipside) Elements set by American Crafts. Flower and buttons are “miniMarks: Market Accents” by American Crafts, plus some assorted vellum stickers.
These thumbnails are different views of an easter card for my friend based on a very cute picture of my friend’s baby mistaking his dad’s nose for a food source… The caption reads, “Somebunny’s hungry…”
Trifold pale pink cardstock is pre-cut from Paper Source, epoxy eyelet charm is from Making Memories Spring Fling line, PP on inside of card is from the Marrakech 6×6 Paper Pad by Basic Grey.
Hopefully the recipient of this LO won’t read my blog before she gets this in the mail. 🙂 I’m not totally happy with it, but I liked the sentiment of “surrounded by love” and having the baby surrounded by his family including: paternal grandma, maternal great-grandma, maternal step-grandma, maternal grandpa, maternal grandma, maternal step-grandpa…and yeah, I got mom and dad in there too. 🙂 The alphas didn’t come out as well as I would have liked.
Background paper is #NT 104 “Far-Out/Buff” dbl. sided paper from Paper Loft; PP is Jack’s World: Animal Friends from Cosmo Cricket and the alpha stickers are from Target.
- Easter cards…I went to an antique store yesterday and bought a bunch of vintage Easter cards and other materials. 🙂
- LO for another friend
As for next week’s “single-layer challenge”….we shall see. 🙂 OH! And here is a new find. I just LOVE the patterned paper…I can’t wait until Scrapbook.com starts carrying their stuff (I have hope). Of course, I think, in honor of Earth Day in April, I’m going to pledge only to use my stash/recycled goods & papers for the entire month.
Thanks for visiting!
