A Little Weekend Project!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend?
With the weather a little on the iffy side we decided
to just skip yard-work today.
The guys went to the County Fair
and I stayed home to play
with my new die cut.
This little bird is Sizzix's Score Board Die by Eileen Hull.
I deco-paged him with old book pages,
added some crackle paint and lace.
You can't really see it but he sits on an old vine cork.

Thanks for stopping by.
Hope you have a great weekend.

Bonjour de Paris!

"Bonjour de Paris!"
is a mixed media project
I been working on for awhile.
I deco-paged the front of an
old composition notebook with
old book pages
and then just added odd and ends.
Stamped images, embellishments,
die-cut Eiffel Tower and lace.

I also added this puzzle piece.
Just deco-page old book pages onto
your puzzle piece, stamp sentiment and
A gorgeous eye candy!

Life's to short!

This easel card was so much fun to make.
I used the girlfriends stamp (Shoppers front) from
Art Impressions and the sentiment
"Life's to short to act normal!" also
from Art Impressions.
"The best is yet to be" was a Stampin'Up! stamp.
For the license plate I just added a Happy Birthday.

Aren't the girls just adorable?

Pink Unicorn!

A pink Unicorn Mailbox for a little Princess.
The Unicorn, Cricut cartridge "Paper Doll Dress Up".

On the card I dry embossed the Unicorn to give
it some texture.
I also added a paper doily for a little vintage look.

Don't they look great together?
Oh, and I added some rhinestones for a
little bling.

Stormy Tuesday!

What a stormy Tuesday in Kentucky.
Riding home from work in a thunderstorm,
heavy rain and high water was no fun at all.
Well since there are no ball games to rush off to tonight
I give you all a peek into the room
were all the creativity happens.
Kind of, since I don't have everything in one place.
My Cricut has to live in the basement and odds and ends
are spread out through the house, for now,
to I get a room of my own.
As for now, the Study is the Daisy's home!

Sorry, tiding up is more like stacking things on top of
one another.

My trusty helper "Buddy".
He loves to snooze on my desk.
My favorite spot too!

Hello Baby!

Happy 4th of July to everyone!
Hope you all had a great and safe Holiday weekend!
Well I'm looking forward to a week off, trying to catch up
on some things I should have done a long time ago,
and just enjoying not having to go to work.

"Hello Baby"
is a little gift set I made for my husbands co-worker
who will be a new grandma any day now.
The little tin mailbox (Oriental trading) nicely decorated
makes the perfect gift container.
The vintage baby carriage (Hampton Art) I found at
Michael's the other day, I just needed to have it.
And yes, with all the blue, you guessed right
"It's a BOY"
Congratulations to the proud
