Happy Valentine's Day

Hi Craft Loves,
Happy Valentine's Day! I hope you haven't gotten blown away.  We've had strong wind all day long!

These cookies are for my husband.  I made the knock off "tagalong" cookie by sandwiching peanut butter between 2 ritz crackers and dipping in melted chocolate.  I then used the cricut cake mini to cut out fondant for the top.  It was even easier to use the machine this time and it was only the 2nd time I used it!
I dipped a few strawberries in the leftover chocolate...yum!

Here is the valentine I made for the CraftyMr.  I used the Wild Life Cricut lite cart and shaded the deer with a bit of pigment ink.

We are having a quiet evening at home with lobster tails for dinner.

Happy crafting,

Hello Kitty Birthday Party

Hi Crafters,
We had a great time at the party!  Everything looked great.  Penelope had a wonderful time as well.  She looked fantastic in her tutu!

Her birthday card.  I think I mixed up a few pieces but that's okay!

This banner I made with my gypsy using George for the triangles and circles for the scallops.  I used mini monograms for the round scalloped circles and lyrical letters for the font in markers.  I used a heart hole puncher and tulle and ribbon leftover from her tutu.
I made this stool from an unfinished one from Michael's.  I painted it and used vinyl to decorate it. I finished it with a matte coat of Mod Podge.

I'll be posting tomorrow for Valentine's!

Happy Crafting,

Hi Crafters,
Here is the outfit I have put together for Miss Penelope this weekend.  I did a no sew tutu and made a freezer paper onesie for her.  She's going to be queen for they day!

The kitty face was made with the silhouette feature on Hello Kitty Greetings and the font is from Lyrical Letters.

Make a Wish Penguin

Hi crafters,

It is my last weekend before Penelope's big party! I need to get some A2 envelopes and invites will be out (a bit late but it's all family so this is just a little extra touch).  I have some big plans for decorations this weekend.

Here is a birthday card for one of my crafty co-workers!  The penguin is from Christmas Cheer.  The background paper is from DCWV Spring Showers, and the stamp is from Studio G.

Happy crafting,

100th post!

Hi Crafters,

Last month I showed you some Lyrical Letter card fronts.  I thought this one would be perfect for a quick and easy valentine.
I ran it through the cuttlebug for a bit of texture. It's ready to be put in the mail!

I can't believe this is my 100th post!  I am also SO close to 100 followers.  I may have to do a giveaway...hmmm.

I hope you are staying nice and warm and braving the snowstorm if you're getting it! We're just going to get unseasonably warm weather and lots of needed rain, no snow day for this teacher!

Happy Crafting,
