SVGCuts project for today....the small table lamp from the Maison de Madeline kit.  We (Allison, Emma and I) each made one.  You can see Emma's hand, she was clever enough to make a light switch on hers!
I put a tea light in and so pretty in the dark!

I made this card for our friend's brother who passed away.
Very sad

SVGCuts Swap #8

SVGCuts Swap #8 - Spring Theme
I used My Happy Garden Hideaway and Breezy Meadow Butterflies kits.
I cut the butterflies out of vellum and added glitter all around the edges.
I almost forgot to take a picture!  I already put 10 in the envelops.

Here's the Nacho Average Challenge for this week:

I used both of my favorite stamp sets here, Petite Pairs and Creative Elements.
I colored in the flower a bit to give it some dimension.

How cute are these !!
I got this idea on You Tube from Dee (she always has such cute stuff !)
I changed it up a bit and made them toppers instead of cards and I also used the second smallest oval framelit for the outer ear.
I gave one to my friend today and she loved it!  Gotta mail the other 3, I think the peeps are going to get smooshed!!

Yesterday's jewelrys class was making these looped broches.
Not bad for my first time!
The pin backing is kinda small so you could wear this as a necklace too.
I'm giving the one on the left to my friend for her birthday, hope she likes it.

SVGCuts Bunnies

Allison and I made some Easter bunnies from SVGCuts.  We used the Egg Hunt kit.  We didn't want to make cards, so we just cut the front side, added a few punches, ribbon, brads, and rhinestones and voila!  Then we enlarged the file to make some big ones too!  
I decided to hang them on my mantel with my Easter baskets.
