I went shopping with my family over the weekend. I saw this amazing 3D Mother's day card! I had to buy it and try and figure out how it worked!!! It took me all day to figure it out- I had to demolish the card to see the inner workings but I like how it came out. I think the possibilities are endless! Take a look at some more pictures. I also did a little quick video so you could see how it works!

I have finally finished making a special card for a special person who is celebrating their 90th Birthday soon! I was inspired by the card I saw on Splitcoast Stampers. I even loved the sentiment! Check it out here-
I have a new appreciation for 90 years of life!!! As I made each candle- I realized this person has been alive for a LONG time!!! I can't even imagine that I will make it to 90 years of age!!! If I do- I hope I will have the sense of humor and quick wit that this special person had displayed for all the time I have known him!
Here are a few more pictures of this long, long card. Can you tell I used the wing of SU's bird punch for the flame. I loved using scraps of my favorite paper for the candles....many, many candles....!!! It really was fun to make!!! I hope he enjoys it!

Where has the time gone? We are already approaching the 4th week of April! Yikes! I have been busy working on making a Tiara and Magic Wand! Every birthday girl needs one! I have a fabulous Grandson who is into Cars and trucks and wouldn't care a hoot about a tiara or Magic Wand. I don't have a Granddaughter....sigh...yet..sigh... But after seeing Becca's Tiara and Magic Wand over on her blog- Amazing Grace...I had to make one!. Now I am not Becca...sigh...but it is my attempt to channel the Princess in everyone. So here it is... First, you will want to see Becca's...sigh, it is beautiful!
Maybe I could be her lady in waiting???
I purchased Spellbinder's Persian Accents. I didn't buy the Persian Motifs, which Becca did use for her tiara. So I made due with just the Accents. It makes for a little less height on my tiara but again- A lady in waiting shouldn't have as big a tiara as her Princess- right? The Medallion on my Magic Wand was made with the die that came with the Persian Accents- I just put 2 together and offset them to make a circle and added some bling. The center was something I purchased from Tate's in Bath - from the notions section.
Spellbinder's Labels Twenty die was used to make the backdrop in white. I cut it a little more than in half and used a little glue to make sure it stays in place. This ended up being a very economical to make. I used Scor Tape to adhere the silver part of the tiara to a silver headband. The headband cost one dollar! All the bling was part of my stash along with the fluffy feathers - I love using this stuff!!! Shh...Shh... When no one is around I plan on wearing this beautiful tiara!!! I think it will make me feel like a Queen!!

I am taking these bunny boxes to work tomorrow to give to my staff! I saw these adorable bunnies on pinterest and cased them. Check it out - http://goinovertheedge.blogspot.com/2012/03/punch-art-bunny-rabbit-card-for-easter.html
The box is from Sizzix! You can almost tell which punches I used to make the bunny. The ears and feet are the small and large oval punch from SU! The head is a heart punch - turned upside down. The body is a circle punch from Spellbinders as are the cheeks- just a smaller size.
I had fun making these! Who doesn't love bunnies! I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter!

I love my new shutter die from Memory Box! Not only can you use it with the window die from Memory Box but it makes a great Windmill! I made the tulips from SU's bird punch. The card itself is a Side Step Card. SU's large and small oval made the door of the windmill and the window. Here is another view of my Windmill card- front and back!
