Nuts About U

I don't know why but I love these card! Made this one for my Great Aunt Marge in Cali.

Dragster Thank You

I made this for a friend who works with me but also works at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. My daughter and I are into NASCAR and the NHRA. We had never been to an NHRA race before and my dad wanted to go so I asked if I could buy tickets cheaper from him. He said just meet me at the track and I'll get you in. So we drove out there to find my friend with Platnium tickets, primo seating! My dad couldn't make it but my DD and I had a blast! Got him a $50 gift card to Famous Dave's as a thank you!

Matryoshka Russian Thank You

Made this for my boss for giving me a nice woman's polo shirt with the company logo embroidered on the sleeve.

Birthday in a Box

Had to share my latest project. I made this with a Close to My Heart box that I purchased at my local scrapbook show. It was for my BFF Shannan who's birthday is on October 31st AKA Halloween! Her nickname is Newt, hence the Eye of Newt bottle on the cover. Her favorite color is purple and if I do say so myself, this came out spooktacularly! Mwahhhahahaha! The inside is filled with a cake mix (not Devil's Food, although I was tempted), cupcake wrappers, frosting in Sunset Orange, sprinkles that are Halloween colors and candy bones, purple balloons and horn blowers from the dollar store that had princess crowns on them and I altered them with the cats. Thanks for lookin'!
