Simple Birthday Wish

A simple birthday card using a cute image.  I did a little debossing of the image on the backside to give it a little dimension.

Here's a card I made for a friend who is going through a hard time right now.  I hope it makes her smile.

Not your mama's fish sticks!

I recently received a coupon to try a new product at Kroger's - Dr. Praeger's seafood products.  I chose the Buffalo Fish Bites.  These are little nuggets of wholesome deliciousness!  I really like the fact that I can pronounce every single ingredient in them, and they are packed with protein and really low in calories. 

My husband enjoys them as much as I do.  Now I want to try some of the other varieties.

Flower Pot

Here's a flower pot card I made for my sister.  She didn't know the flowers pulled out until weeks later!

Birthday eclipse cards

I made a couple of eclipse cards for some upcoming birthdays.  They are fun to make.  The hardest part is deciding which stamps to use.  I cut the letters with my scan n cut.  The first one uses foam tape under the letters.  The second one has more dimension because I cut pieces of foam board.

folded books

So, I have been trying my hand at something new.  Folding books.  I have to say that this is one of the cheapest hobbies there is to get into.  The supplies are a ruler, a pencil, a pair of scissors, and a used book.  Patterns for different  things abound in any theme you can imagine, and even the ones you pay for a pretty cheap.  Pattern makers will make patterns for you if you can't find exactly what you're looking for, and they can even custom make a pattern from a photo of your pet or loved one.  

I decided to start off with a very simple and basic heart.  The book I grabbed didn't have enough pages to complete my heart, but it was enough to let me know if it was something I wanted to continue trying to do.

Then I moved on to a cat's face peeking from the side of the book.  Several of my friends said they can't tell this is a cat, but I still wasn't put off.

Here is a simple dog's paw that I folded.  I think I am going to give this one to my vet.

Finally I felt ready to attack something a little more complicated doing a cut and fold.  I am going to cover this one with a cute dog themed paper and send it to my sister who recently lost her dog.

I'm moving on to even more complicated ones now.  It's quite fun and easier to do that you might expect!
