It's a Beautiful Day

It's so pretty outside here in Charm City...not to hot not to cool..the sun is shining, and it's just an overall relaxing day,... finally...I've been up since 2a.m. playing in here...I made this project that was alot of fun. It's going to be a birthday box for a gift/gift card for someone. ..don't know who yet, but someone will get it....what do you think? The face is really strange looking..I can't seem to get a good face on anything I make... I made the face with a ball of newspaper, foli and polymer clay and baked it. I also used newspaper for the inside of the hat to give it some stability. On the backside I used the Basic Grey notch tool to make the notches to thread the twine around to make it look like a corsic (sp?)...This was just a small paper mache box that I had in my stash and I wanted to do something with it. There are hat pins in the hat holding the tag. I also used the Accent Essentials card for the Cricut to make the flowers and the ruffles (scallop). Here are a couple of layouts that I made last week or so. They are our eldest and I and then our eldest and our little niece... Well I hope that everyone has a wonderful week ahead. It's going to be another busy one here for me as I'm getting into our spare room to clean it out. I promised DH that I would since he has been so sweet lately. Not to mention he has been on my butt about getting it, they just don't understand.... Hugs from a sunny Charm City

Now that I have your attention, it's Friday...not that it means anything to me this week (cuz' I'm working tonight), Fridays are normally a great day here for our little one and myself. We usually do chinese and movies.Well tonight, we aren't..since I have to work tonight, I think we are just doing some sort of take out or drive through... Here's some projects/cards that I've made since I last posted. These first two are what I made for the challenges over at Hallmark Scrapbook on the message boards. If you haven't checked them out, take a gander over and play along...we would love to see you... this was a wierd day for me. I decided to make wierd faces on the envies for decorations...I thought this would be a cute way to store some of my fav' cd's here in my studio. The above one I made using the jar cut from Doodlecharms cart from Cricut. I had so much fun making this one..the paradise words are actually printed onto a sheet of transparency film and ran through my cricut machine to make the cut..the stamps are stamped onto a piece of glossy photo paper after it was cut out from the cricut machine.. The above card I made for a friend that a new baby was just born into the family. the inside pillar actually pops up when you open the card...
this is actually a cootie catcher that I made to use for a table decoration at our daughters 4th of July party.
last but not least is this cropped image...if you would like to see the rest of the photo click on this link. It will take you to a tutorial that I just uploaded. It's my first one...
Well that's it for now...hope it won't be as long til my next post...
Hugs from a very warm Charm City
