Helping my daughter with invitations for her friend's baby shower.
She wanted yellow and grey as the main colors, here is what we came up with.   
We put the specifics about the shower on yellow paper on the back.
I think they came out cute!

Little Ditties bracelet

A new pattern from Deborah Roberti, Around the Beading Table.   I decided to make this one for my friend for Christmas.  I know she'll love it !

Wednesday, December 18, 2013

I don't remember when I made this necklace for my Aunt, but it broke so I told her to mail it back to me and I would fix it.  So I decided to add some gold caps on the white pearls just to give it some more interest.   Then I made her a bracelet for Christmas, hope she likes it !

Placitas Craft Show

Now for my second craft fair......if your in the area, please come by!

Craft Show first ever craft show in Leander went really well.   I really enjoyed myself and lots and lots of thanks to my daughter for all her help!  Its nice to hear such nice comments on my crafts.   We were in the group that wasn't able to set up the night before, so I was a little nervous having to set up the morning of.  So...we got up at 4:30 in order to get there at 6.  I was thinking there would be a line for those of us who could't set up the night before, but,  no line!   We were able to get in with the assistance of the Leander Baseball Team, set up and then cruise around to see all the goods!
It was a long day, but I loved it!   Loved seeing my name on the floor for my space  haha

and here we are, all set up

Each participant had to donate an item for the silent auction, which benefits the Baseball Team, here is my donation:

I hope who ever bid on it, likes it, its hard to tell in this picture, but the red pieces are crystals and the big piece are the Frosted Finishes Embellishments from Stampin' Up!

Baby card for my friend's new baby...not the look I was going for, but it turned out ok I think.

Birthday card for my friend.  I'm using the new Gift Bow BigZ die.  I love it!
I'm also using Smoky Slate as the base, Birthday Basic DSP, a large pearl, and the sentiment is from Happiest Birthday Wishes.
I just used the bow part, when I put the flag part (don't know what they are called!) it stuck out on both sides and wouldn't fit in the envelop, so I just did the bow part.

I also made some Christmas cards.  These are going to a couple of friends, my other Christmas cards I'll be designing on MDS.
I was going for the look of a present.  Does it look like a present?

Seems like forever since I made a card.   I had to make this Thank You card for my friend who let me visit for 2 weeks!   We had a blast!
This one is for you Nancy!

I used the Simply Sent kit.  I love the laser cut on these.

SU Party September 22, 2013

Our last party I had issues with my computer and didn't post any pictures.  Well, this party all is working with the computer.  So here we go....look at all the fun we had ! backed out the the picture !  hahaha

I love the new envelop punch; it does so many things.  I made this A2 size envelop from DSP for my daughter's birthday card.  The card is inside, I don't want her to see it yet!  So, just the envelop for now.
