CONGRATULATIONS TO THE NEWEST EMPLOYEE OF THE USPS

Hello everyone. I am so happy to announce that the United States Postal Service has a new 'career employee'...my husband. Even though he has been working for them since December 2015 full-time, tomorrow starts his first day as a employee who collects benefits. 
I made him this adorable paper LOV (that is the technical term for the mail truck).
How cute huh?
So many pieces to this, but so worth it.
Look the back door opens for a hidden surprise...
Here is a close up of the metal brads I used to attach the wheels. So perfect!!
Haha, as a personal touch I put a picture of him in uniform, in the driver's seat. 
I am so proud of him. I know he is going to love this. I love you Brian. Best of luck on your newest endeavor.

3D HYDRANGEAS

Happy Sunday everyone. I want to share a cute 3D project I did.
This is actually a birthday gift for one of my nieces. I think giving 'just' money is so impersonal. So when I give money I like to make it special. I came up with this using money bills as the leaves.
I started out with A LOT of pink flowers. That I did ink the edges of to give it a pop of color.
Then I attached each flower to a styrofoam ball. Then I stuck the whole bunch in a 3D box. 
How cute!!
Thanks so much for looking. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

MY DISNEY PRINCESS...

My morning project... ha. Now I am hungry!!
I love how this came out. The picture doesn't show the true sparkle of the taco.

This shows the brightness better. You can really see the 'cheese', 'tomatoes', 'lettuce' and 'meat'. Thanks so much for looking.

Hi Folks. I wanted to share some 'thank you' cards I made last month.
No, your eyes are not playing tricks on you. I did make them all a bit differently.

SEQUIN NOTEBOOK

Hi folks, I wanted to share a cute 'altered' notebook I recently did for one of my nieces.
Here is a video of it as is...just the way I bought it.

One side is rainbow...
the other side is silver.
I then cut vinyl on my Silhouette Cameo and placed the negative side directly on top of the cover of the notebook. Making sure all the silver sequins were showing, I 'colored' them with a black Sharpie marker.
I love how personal it came out, I just wish the lines were cleaner. I know I am my worse critic. I bought the notebook from Walmart, but I know that they also have them at Five Below. Thanks so much for looking.

Hello everyone. Happy Valentine's Day to all that celebrate. I want to share some quick cards I made using the filigree hearts freebie that was issued by My Scrap Chick.
The first one, I added the 'flower pretties' freebie to dress it up a bit. A big thank you to my husband for the yummy chocolate covered strawberries :)
The second card has been paired up with 'the daisy garden' flower set. I just love these flowers. Another big thank you to my hubby for these amazing roses!!! I love you honey.
