Next I colored them lightly with colored pencils. (Colors intensify as the shrink.)
Next I punched a a circle where I wanted my duckie to show through. I stamped the duckie from Limitless Lables on white and used an edge punch to make the lacey edges and layered the bubbles over with foam dots. I mounted the piece onto my yellow card base and added the sentiment Welcome Baby.

(where better to rest, relax, and enjoy than under a palm tree near the beach, right?)
Below is a close up of my palm tree. I freehand cut the trunk after scoring my brown cardstock in a criss-cross pattern and tucked the lower end under the "sand". I used oval punches for the leaves, sponged with Burnt Umber ink (after folding and snipping a little). I glued them down letting a few stick up over the top of the brown card base. Last I added 3 stickles coconuts.

I have a sweet boy who just really loves penguins. I had been thinking of trying to turn PTI's Wise Owl upside down to make it a penguin. I'm very happy with how well it worked!
I started with a base card of summer sunrise. Then I used the cute leaf motif in white ink to create my snowflakes on the black background. I used Simple Alphabet to put my sentiment on the Summer Sunrise ribbon. I stamped the large owl body from Wise Owl in white on Black CS Then I made a mask with the belly cut out and sponged his belly with the white ink. His eyes and beak were stamped on white and cut out and glued on. I stamped his feet directly onto my white square and glued down the body over them. I distressed the edges of the square before placing it over the ribbon onto my card.

My son wanted to be Alvin from Alvin and the Chipmunks.
The hardest part was trying to find a hoodie without the zipper. I thought I was going to have to find one online to order.
Then, I stumbled across this hoodie at a church yard sale about 2 weeks ago
I cut a big "A" out of yello felt and hot glued it on.
One sheet of felt was the perfect size.
I cut faux fur into a tail hot glued brown felt to the underside to hide "ugly side" (but it never showed)
I pinned the tail on between the back pockets with 2 saftey pins from the inside before he put them on.
The ears were half circles, also cut fronm the fur and lined with the felt hot glued. I tri folded them and hot clued edges down. last I hot glued them onto hair clipies so they just cliped into his already shaggy hair (and he didn't have to wear a headband.)

It actually started with the envelolpes.
(Nana had the awesome idea to have everyone address an envelope and drop in a basket for the door prize drawing, then mom-to-be has all her thank you note envelopes pre-addressed for her.)
So I set out to make butterfly envelopes for everybody to fill out. Then I realized I should go ahead and make her the note cards to go in them too. I made 5 cards with each each large butterfly in the set.

Today, it still sits in pieces...in a new location in a different state. (Yes, he packed and moved it like that.)
We used a tiny laptop for a while but it had no way of uploading photos.
After staying with the in-laws (who were without computer or internet sevice of their own) for a few months and then finally getting an apartment and getting somewhat settled, the replacement computer is set up.
So, I guess I'll give this another go.
