....Happy Birthday

Over at 365cards the challenge was to use lavender. Everything here is a shade of purple except obviously the red, white, and black. Hopefully this will meet the criteria. Also used on the stamped image was silver stickles, crystal stickles, and liquid pearls. Image was colored in with copic markers.

Love is in the air

over at 365cards the challenge today was a wedding card with the word love in the sentiment. Well here is contribution. I used a card base, printed out my pic onto white cardstock, colored that in with prisma markers and copic markers. The shiny parts are with my sakura star dust pen. I used basic grey on the bottom running a "tool" (i don't know the name of it) to punch the 5 rows of little punches and then printed off the "Love is in the air!" using A&S Black Swan font. Tied a bow in the corner.

Fathers Day card

this is the card that will be going to my father in law. For some reason I'm really liking this card. the coloring was also very theraputic.

embroidery applique elephant

This blanket is for this little guy. Obviously, his name is Maverick. He was born on Mothers Day. He is my nephew by marriage. This pic was taken a couple of days after his birth with my son, Kaleb (6). His room is elephants and such, so that explains the elephant. I just gave him new life with the polka dots and the different colored thread. The image is on one corner of the fleece blanket and the blanket is big enough to cover him when he is a toddler and such. I have made several kids these blankets. I guess its kind of a trade mark now.
BTW this is the little guy that got to wear the WILL YOU MARRY MY DADDY? onsie, and will get to wear the others also. Just in case anyone is wondering, the momma said yes!

Target Practice

here is the link for just the target practice with the target. the gun is from the turkey hunter file that is already on 4shared. hopefully someone will be able to use this for boys or grown men practicing either on the range with a gun or bow and arrow. It may also work on little boys throwing rocks or something.

embroidery on onesis

My brother in law had a few requests. So I dug out my embroidery machine and away I went. I haven't used it for awhile. I have made quilts with it and decorated different things. I use to do some for different people making a little extra cash. I might see about drumming up so business and do this again. I know I have soooo much free time. LOL. Its only a smaller household one. It is not made to tackle any big thick stuff. I have done towels and sweatshirts, nothing any heavier. It can be quite fun though.
