Last project for my GD-3 Birthday Gift!

Happy Saturday to all you crafter's!
I just wanted to share a little something else that I made for my GD-3 birthday gift.  I got up extra early this morning and decided to create this nylon flowers bouquet to add on to her bedroom decor.  Well hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  It's time to get myself motivated again, need to finish up some cooking before heading out to her birthday party at noon...

My Birthday Gift for my GD-3!

Well, this was a big challenge for me, I spent all day yesterday trying to sketch out HK new cousin Rebecca Bonbon a (French Bulldog).  I went over to my daughter's house after the girls went to school and took a photo of this picture off the cover of her new bedspread that is part of her BD gift.  I'm not an artist but it took me several attempts, wasting a bunch of copy papers before I could get this to look like her in this  picture.  Introducing Rebecca Bonbon.

Well this is what it turned out to become, after spending countless hours until late last night to complete this project. 

Because I ran out of copics - black  I had to use my MS (ebony) to finish coloring the picture. Added  stickles to bring out the flowers, buttons, & Petaloo flowers.  The photo frames will be going up on her bedroom wall after I get it painted in a couple of weeks. The color theme of her room will be pink/black/white because that is what Rebecca Bonbon colors are.  Her bedroom wall is going to be painted a pale pink.  Afer her BD this coming weekend will be starting to strip her bedroom and moving everything out into their playroom. (OMG what another nightmare this is going to be!!!!)

Here's also a money holder gift card I made for her:

I made this money holder a little bigger that usual, did a 8 x 9 instead.  Scored it 2" x 5 1/2 ".
Used my Cuttlebug (Swiss Dots), Petaloo (Fushia ) flowers and inserted the center with a brad eyelet.
Well it's now time to finish cleaning up the mess I made in my craft room.  Until my next adventure - have a great day!

So Who Is This Mysterious Rebecca Bonbon?

Hello Everyone~
Last week before I left for my vacation my GD-3 asked if I could paint her bedroom and that she wanted a Rebecca Bonbon room.   So I asked my daughter who the heck is Rebecca Bonbon?  So I did some researching on the web and found out that this Rebecca Bonbon is HK's cousin.  The creator of HK (Yuko Shimizu) also created Rebecca Bonbon a French Bulldog and another new character Angel Sugar Cat.  Well that's how behind I am keeping up with the latest fad.  Her products are sold at KMart and Sears!  Her BD is coming up this Saturday and her birthday theme is LEGO'S, because it was too late to re-change everything we bought for her party we are going to leave it at that.  But.... my daughter ordered her complete bed set and it came in yesterday.  Rebecca Bonbon is the cutest thing next to HK.. So I am working on her project for her bedroom and will be sharing that with all of you soon.  For all of you who have not met Rebecca Bonbon yet here she is...

Have a great day!!!!

Happy Easter!

I wanted to wish everyone a very Happy Easter! Here are two cards that I created this morning. Also my hubby's taking me on a vacation trip and we are both excited.  We are leaving Friday morning and be back on the BI on Monday. We are going to spend the Easter on the Valley Island this will my DH first trip there. I once lived there like 20 plus years ago so this will also be something new and exciting for the both of us.  I hope I can find some good craft stores there and bring back some new goodies...

Both cards I used the HK Sizzlits Die with my Big Shot. And used my clear stamps and gave it a bling with my stickles to bring it out. 
From my family to your's -

                    HAVE A HAPPY & SAFE EASTER!

A Farewell To My GF!

Hello everyone~
A little late in posting for today - spent my better part of the day with my GF and her family.  They are moving back to California to help a family member who recently lost their dad.  Here's a card that I made for her and also for her little boy who will be turning two this coming Saturday.

The HB card was made with my cricut using the Doodlecharms cartridge. The BD card was scraps of paper that I just quickly put together added a little bling, the flower I made out of felt and I just added stickles to bring it out.
Enjoy the rest of the day!

For the DP I used Pebbles(So Sweet) & Double Mates (Hawaiian Blue)
Punches - MS & Marvy Uchida
Stamp set - Clearworld Clear stamps
Colors - MS chestnut & Copic E21

Until the next time - Have a blessed day!

Another simple Easter Treat!

TGIF to you all!
Here's just a short post, just wanted to pop in and share this fast egg template that I made for the GS-4.  Little boys they really don't care for fancy baskets - all they want to do is just rip and tear to get to the candies.

Have a great weekend to you all~
