May Birthdays

In May it is another nephew's birth.  He wants everything, so I could pick whatever I felt like making.  (He also wants to do a melted crayon art project, so I am getting him supplies for that!)

I liked the other creatures with the dolphin.  Here is the jelly fish.  It was shown in pink, but it is for a boy- so why not bright orange?  He was fun to crochet.

This one is a cuttlefish.  Not sure what color they are really, so I picked teal.

Have a good day!

Get Well Card

Julie hasn't been feeling great, so I sent her this card.  I did the background one day when I was just messing around with stuff on my table.  The pink strip was leftover from card class, and the leopard is a ribbon impulse buy. :)  When I decided to make it for Julie I added the toilet because I wanted to use the "hope it all comes out okay" line.

Have a great week!

Two Previous Projects

Here are a couple things I have done in the past month or so.

First, this is a pair of legwarmers I knit my niece.  Fairly simple and quick knitting, and they stay up without having to add elastic.  Whew.
Note:  yeah, she picked the colors and was very happy.
This had was called the Wurm.  I love knitting hats, they are quick and make me feel like I accomplished something with minimum actual effort.  I gave it to my SIL Julie cuz she usually likes the random stuff I make just cuz I feel like it...  :)

Have a great weekend,

card class time again!

So, my evil plan has been revealed.  I host these card classes just so my friends come over and hang out with me.  :)  I have been really sick and not leaving the house much for months, so I admit I haven't been able to visit any of them....

This card class we are doing a project!  I saw this on the Martha Stewart show and loved it.  All you do is draw little dots and lines in a small circle (about a quarter size works well) on a washed plain t-shirt.  (I found the half poly/half cotton Micheal's ones work really well.)  Then stretch it taut and slowly drop rubbing alcohol in the center.  It spreads out and makes fab flowers or fireworks!  Google "tye-die with Sharpies" to learn more. 

My niece did this last night, and agreed to leave it here to be the sample shirt.  She is coming back and finishing the back another day.  When you are done, and it is FULLY dry, you need to iron with a hot iron to set.

On to the cards:  This one uses the Sew Ribbon.  Love it!

This one uses Coordinations cardstock, it comes pre-embossed and you just sand it to reveal one or all of the words.  The flower is felt.

Easter card using my MS fringe scissors.... and the leftover gold embossed paper from last class, colored with spring inks.

This one uses the notebook edge die from MFT.  And a notepaper background stamp.

Hope you are having a great week!
