Purple Bunny

My grandson ask for a purple bunny on his card.  He saw a embroidery project I was working on and he wanted the same one.  So, here is his purple embroidered bunny.


I find it kind of  hard coming up with boy cards.  And sometime it takes a considerable amount of time putting one card together. 
 I am amazed by all the other crafters/card makers and how they can produce beautiful cards and projects so fast and be able to join in on numerous blog hops at the same time.  I don't think I will ever be able to do that.  I make so many cutting mistakes on the Cricut......size is an is an example:  I needed a smaller bunny but this is what cut.. I have Design Studio, but that is a challenge too.   At least I was able to use my mistake in this card even tho he is a bit over sized for this size card, but it is what I had.  Looks like he ate too much chocolate. lol

In posting these pictures I see that I need to do a little trimming on the embroidered card and maybe a googly eye would be cute on the chocolate bunny.

Well, thanks for looking and thanks to all the crafters for sharing their creative gift.

Wedding Card II

While making the 1st wedding card, I had some cuts that I did not use (mistakes ya know).  Anyway, I wanted to try to utilize my "mistake".  Here is what I came up with.  Since it was my brother's anniversary, I stamped "Happy Anniversary".  It was late getting to them, but I guess and hope it is the thought that counts.

Many things going on at my house...getting ready for our RVing adventure (Reflections Two - America From Our RV Door blog), Easter Cards, embroidery orders.

I don't know if anyone wonders why "Reflections", well, I use to do stained glass and my "business" was called Reflections so I just kept it for my personal blog.

I played around with my card slideshow and now I can't get it Photobucket broke????  Oh well, I hope you enjoy  the waterfalls.

Wedding Card

This was kind of a rushed card.  And since I am really a novice at card making I was a little apprehensive but here is the card and the requester was very pleased.  I wish the quality of the pictures were better.  The cards are a little prettier than they show.

I believe the paper is from DCWV and I used tiny pearls around the brides neck, waist and bottom of the gown.  The bride is from the Sweethearts cartridge and the doily is from Lacy Labels.

Easter Card

I have been holding off to share my Easter Cards, but I will share this one.....and hope my grands don't see.......

The bunny is from the Cricut Sampler cartridge.  The Easter egg paper is from The Paper Studio "Four Seasons", and the pastels are from Colorbok (Walmart). The choc. paper is some that I have had a while and I don't remember the brand.  I also used a Martha Stewart punch and stickles.

Happy Birthday Cards

I was asked to do some birthday cards they are.....

They are a little larger than the ones I usually do.  They had to be large enough for numerouse ones to sign.

Easter Card

I have been doing a little machine embroidery for clients and a few Easter Cards for fun, so I thought....why not incorporate the two. we go..... I stitched out the chick on my Brother PR600 machine and then trimmed around the design.  I pop dotted the chick on the card papers.  This is also my second attempt at a pedestal card.

The little Chick cracks me up!!
