Fairy Garden House!

I have been playing with some of my new stuff from my order from Stampin Up!  I love the Curvy Keepsake die!  I have seen sooo many cute
ideas from Pinterest.   But it always reminded me of a Fairy House.  Here is my idea of a little garden house for Gnomes or Fairies!

I did use 2 embossing folders to give it some texture.  The butterfly is from Martha Stewart.

Here are some of the items I used to make my Fairy House.

On another note, my sisters and I went to Hobby Lobby in Bangor!  We had not been there before so it was a real treat!  We spent 2 hours going aisle to aisle just to see what they had!  It was fun!  Here are a few pictures-
I love these waiters!

Burlap is another favorite!

How many days til Christmas?


Don't you love sunflowers?
  Sorry for the long post- but I wanted to share the Birthday card I made for our daughter, Emily.  She and her husband, Rob, are waiting for the birth of their son!  He is due any day now!  I can't wait to meet him!!  Anyway, I was inspired by a similar card on Pinterest.  I used Graphic 45 paper- my favorite- to make this card.   I added some bling to make it pop!  I hope she liked it!  Have a fabulous week!

Halloween Slide - No- Glide!

Just a quick post to show you the card I have been working on.  I have used many of the Sizzix dies before for my Halloween cards.  But I wanted to make a 3D Halloween card this time.  This is made the same as the SlideNGlide cards I have been make but without the rounded bottom.  I also did not use the heavy weight poster board but used card stock instead.  So, no motion on this card but I still love the fact that it is a 3D card.

Fall is in the air now.  We have taken out the air conditioner and screen door.  It makes me sad that Summer is gone but I do love Fall. It is my favorite time of year....if just Winter wasn't so close behind!

Cat's Meow!

I have made one more Slide N Glide card!  As I said in a previous post, I was inspired by the PopnRock cards that I saw on Pinterest!   Below you can see that I started out with a different look for my cats but they looked too scary for me!  So I changed out the eyes with googley eyes!  They looked a little more friendly to me!

I mounted the cats on a base that is made from the small oval punch from SU that I cut in half.  The picture below shows that I can still fold this card up and mail it.  It is a little bulky and will probably cost more but you can mail it!  I will add more detail to the front but I wanted to show you how it looks for now.

This picture gives you a better view of the mechanism that is used to make the cats move. 

The back  of the card!

I did a video of the way to assemble the mechanism that made the cats in the back ground move!  This is the same technique I used to make the sail boat move in a previous post back in August.  I was going to share a template for the flap I used for the Cat's Meow but my scanner is acting up!  I will try and share it later - when my husband fixes the printer.  It is just a little larger than the template I shared in August.  Hope my video isn't too confusing!  Let me know if you have any questions!
