A BIG THANK YOU TO MY SISTER

Hi folks. I just want to share a cute card I made for my sister.
I stopped by her house one day last week and she went through her garden with me. She gave me a little bit of almost every plant she had to transplant at my house!!!!!! I was busy for hours after. I am positive that I planted the wrong things together but I will have fun next year too moving them to where they should be. 
The pattern is from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs. I love how it came out and I know that my sister loved it as well. Thanks for looking.

FEEL BETTER EMILY

Hi folks. I just wanted to share another great 3D skate project that I did.
I made these for an amazing ice skater who has had a tough year of injuries. 
I included a note that wished her a speedy recovery and signed it from 'one of her biggest fans'. She left a message on my voicemail that said she loved them. She was going to hang them in her room and keep them forever. :) You can't get better praise than that :) Feel better Emily.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY COURTNEY

Hi everyone, I want to share a special project I made for my niece Courtney's birthday.
How awesome are these? It is all made of paper, except the metal grommets holding the laces and the metal nuts on the wheels. The pattern is from My Scrap Chick.It was actually an ice skate that I altered into roller skates to match Courtney's. Here is a photo of her's...
I think I did a pretty good job matching them up :) I hope you have the best birthday ever Court.

HERB CAROUSEL

I am so excited to this year have a herb carousel. There is nothing like fresh herbs to cook with, especially in the summer. (I love to make garlic, chive butter for steaks and corn.)
I love my cameo especially when I can use it for other loves in my life like gardening!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY SISTER ALISON

Yesterday was my oldest sister's birthday. I had to wait til today to show you all what I made her.
Look, I made her a 3D sewing machine.
This is all made from paper with a real needle. The pattern is from Lori Whitlock.
When I finished, I thought it was a bit plain. So I attempted to dress it up a bit with paint and may have gone a little overboard.
I did alter the pattern a make it into a box to hide some yummy treats inside.
Thanks so much for looking.

GRAND FINALE~ CAKE

So for Harper's last gift of the day, I made birthday cake.
YUM
I just love how this cake came out. It looks so real.
Thanks so much for spending the day celebrating Harper's birthday. I am sure that she loved it and will enjoy her play felt food for days to come.

HARPER'S SUPPER

The celebration continues...here is supper.
Here is what is inside...
Felt pizza
Yum, green pepper, pepperoni, mushroom, and onion pizza.
Who wants a slice? Come back in a bit for the grand finale. :)

HARPER'S BIRTHDAY LUNCH

Welcome back. Here is the second, lunchtime gift to celebrate Harper Caroline's birthday...
This package is actually wrapped in New England Patriot's paper with an official napkin from Gillette Stadium. Where is what is inside...
This is a bologna and cheese sandwich with chips and another strawberry.
The sandwich contains two pieces of white bread, american cheese, swiss cheese, bologna, tomato and roman lettuce. How adorable!!! Come back in a bit and see what is for dinner.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY HARPER CAROLINE

Good morning everyone. Today is a very special day in my family...it is Harper Caroline's 3rd birthday. She is the cutest little girl in the world, so I wanted to really celebrate her day. Last month, I started on creating her 'birthday celebration' that starts out with this hand~lettering sign that I had sitting on top of a very big box I mailed her. (I still need practice!)
This is the tag that was on the first present in the box...
I guess I forgot to take of picture of the actually present wrapped. Sorry, but this is what was inside.
This was my first attempt at felt food. I love how adorable it all came out. Pancakes with butter and syrup, two strips of bacon, to fried eggs and a strawberry garnish. I hope she loves it all.
Come back a little later to see what's for lunch. :)

WELCOME TO THE WORLD NOVA

I want to share an adorable onsie and baby card that I just finished up for a special new baby.
How cute is this? I found it at Target with the wonder woman vinyl on it. I thought it might be a bit cuter if I put her name in the middle with matching glitter vinyl.
Here is the card that I made to go with the present.
How sweet.
This is the inside of the card. I am so excited for the new Mom and Dad and can't wait to meet Nova.

PIZZA

Hi folks, I am sure that some of you have been wondering where I have been. Well, I decided to leave my Design Team position with Little Scraps of Heaven on March 31st. I loved being a part of such a nice company but I wanted to work on some other projects. This is one of them...
For quite some time now I have wanted to 'play' with felt. I have a family member who is getting ready to turn 3 next month and she LOVES food. So I thought I would make her a whole days worth of 'fun felt food' to make her whole day a celebration. This is what is on the menu for dinner...PIZZA.
How adorable huh? I just spend a few minutes ironing the sauce and cheese. Now I am starving. 
Look at the peppers, pepperoni, mushrooms, and white onions. Yum. Thanks so much for looking. Come back and see what is on the menu for the rest of the day.

FLYING HIGH FELICIA

Hello everyone. Tomorrow my niece is flying to Portugal on a class trip. Geez, when I was in school we went to the zoo on our class trips. :)
I made this card for her. I am so excited for her. I did not have the courage then or even now to go abroad. I just know that she will have a great time.
I just hope she doesn't have such a great time that she doesn't come back :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY YOLIE

Hello folks. My good friend Yolie (from 'Just Yolie') had a birthday last week. I made her an adorable card and gift that finally arrived in California all the way from Massachusetts. I didn't want to ruin the surprise by posting it here until I knew she got it. Now, I can finally share it with you all. (Sorry for the camera angle.) Here is her card...

If you know Yolie, you know she is a big fan of planners. I thought this card was just perfect for her. The pattern is the 'happy planner bear' from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs. 
I also made her this 'fat free' slice of birthday cake. It is actually made from a kitchen sponge and felt.
I tried to copy the exact font from her logo on her facebook page. I think I came close.
Here is a close up of some roses I did on the end.
I hope my good friend enjoyed her birthday. I am so glad she was born and is a part of my world.
