Bronco Tote Bag



I made this Denver Bronco tote bag for my best friend's mother.  I have to say, this was a little rough making a Bronco bag when I'm a big time San Diego Charger fan.  I hope she enjoys it.  All fabrics are 100% cotton, I lined the inside with polyester batting.

Musical Fleece Blanket



I've been sewing almost 30 years now & decided it was time to make a fleece blanket plus there's no sewing involved, how easy is that?  My 9 year old daughter picked out the print, it's 60 X 72, it shrinks up a little after you tie lots of knots.  If I knew these were that easy to make, I would have made more over the years.

More Sock Snowman


I can't stop making these cute little guys using Dollar Tree socks.  You can make 2 snowman from 1 pair of white socks & 1 pair of rainbow socks.  In this case, I used 2 separate white socks only because I didn't want the ribbed part of the sock.

Sock Snow People


I've been wanting to make these cute little sock snowman.  I thought these would be cool to give as small gifts for co-workers.    The black one was a sample one because I didn't have any colored or cute fluffy socks, my daughters didn't really want to give up any of theirs.  I went to the Dollar Tree & got cute striped socks, white socks & pom poms.  I had the buttons & holly foam leaves.

Breast Cancer Awareness Card Drive



Each year I participate in the Hope You Can Cling Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers in the card drive for breast cancer awareness.  This year I went the extra mile & made 103 each one is different.  This is my 4th
year & I'll be doing this from here on out.  I dedicate each card in my friend's memory who lost his life to
cancer back in August 2012.

MMTPT237 Love

This will be mailed to the lovebirds in Alabama in which she's not in good health so to cheer the lovely couple up, we are giving them a Valentine party. One who loves flowers & puzzles plus cows. I had these cow images that was given to me by one of SCS pen pals & not sure what the name of stamp is. I brought out my old CTMH teacup stamp set & used it, slit the cup & adhered the 2 cow heads after cutting their bodies. I stamped the sentiment with Reflections Detail EP.

Lollipop Toppers

I wanted to make lollipop toppers for my kids classes, there's 60 of them total. Each one consist of 2 1/2 x 5 1/8 strip of GP white cs, scallop heart die from Hero Arts, then ran it through the CB Swiss Dot ef & used a circle punch. I stamped To & From with Black Stazon. I took the easy way out & stapled the bottom corners after I added the lollipops. I then added tiny heart stickers to each one. I had both my girls write the names of all their classmates.

Happy Anniversary

This was a request to make an anniversary card for a man's wife. He wanted simple but elegant & this is what I came up with. I wanted to use my new MFT Die-namics Contempo Cage. All the white layers are GP white cs & the blue blue is Brazzill Navy. I used the Cuttlebug birds & swirls, big dot & swiss dot ef's. I used the SU bird builder for the leaves.

I wanted to make a card for my late friend's brother who recently just had a bone marrow transplant due to leukemia. I dedicated all my Hope You Can Cling challenge cards last year to his brother who passed away in August of prostate cancer. Cancer sucks!!! I thought by sending this card would lift his spirits a little & the best thing is, we've never met. I sponged the background, then stamped the trees twice & highlighted with Stickles. It turns out that he loved the card & it made me feel good.

MMTPT236 Thinking of You

I made this card for the Tea Pot Tuesday's on Split Coast Stampers. This card will be sent to a lady who recently took a fall & broke both legs. The lady's name is Marian & she loves daffodils, ladybugs, chocolate & anything to do with gardening. I chose to make a teapot card using roses because I didn't have any daffodils. I found a template online, printed it & made a pattern then embossed it with the Cuttlebug.

YCDI5 Quilted Season

This is my 1st time ever hosting a card challenge. This is for the You Can Do It challenge that started about 4 weeks ago, you earn points & receive goodies too. I chose to have my challenge by creating QUILT cards as quilting is my passion so why not make quilt cards too. I punched out about 45 5/8" squares using The Paper Studio Christmas dp, adhered them on the SU Top Note die, used my sewing machine to stitch & then used The Paper Studio holly leaf ef over the quilted panel. I also used the CB big dot ef on the cream panel then adhered it to SU Cherry Cobbler cs as the the base. The quilted panel is raised with 3D dots & I stamped the sentiment with SU Cherry Cobbler ink & added a bow.I'm looking forward to seeing what all the ladies come up with on their quilting cards.
