Table pieces for Baby Shower

 On January 9, I hosted a baby shower along with 4 others.  My oldest son, Matthew and his girlfriend, Nicole of six years are expecting a baby girl.  I ask my sister, Lizzy if she would help me with the centerpieces for the table and this is what she came up with.  We ask Nicole if she had any theme in mind, her only request was Pink & Brown. 

My sister, Lizzy wrapped 6 box with this really cute tan/polka dot wrapping paper. She added tissue in the boxes and made several pairs of paper shoes, and two little outfits made of paper and created two signs that said "It's a girl's thing" and attached to the gift bags.    There was one set (of 3 boxes) on each side of the cake.

She did an awesome job.  After the shower we asked Nicole if she wanted to keep the centerpieces. She said she loved them, but with their small house just did not have a place to store them.  My Friend, Peggy heard that we were going to throw them away.  So she ask if she could have them.  A few weeks later, Peggy used parts of the display at her granddaughter's birthday party.  The other day Peggy was picking up Chinese food at China Doll for her bible study group.  There was a few ladies from China Doll that walked out to help her put all the food in her trunk of her car, when they spotted the centerpieces.  They told her it was beautiful and told Peggy how they were looking for decoration for a baby shower for a co-worker.  Well Peggy passed this along to the ladies and they are going to use it for the co-workers baby shower. After the shower she said that they would pick it up and use it for future baby shower.  Isn't it so neat that my sister, Lizzy created something wonderful and it has been pass on for other to enjoy!  Great job, Lizzy

some valentine cards

 My friend, Patty Suer Provance invited me to join an online group with her - Belle Creations- So far I have just been feeling my way around the place. Well today I took another step and decided to do the image challenge.  The image was the picture of the girl.  I decided to make two valentine cards.   The other images were all colored with copic sketch markers, cut out and some of them were pop-dotted. Use chalk inks to to ink around the card and the image.

Hoppy down the bunny trail......

Six bunny cards that will be going to a lucky soldier to mail back home to family and friends.  I found a bunny image on the internet and resize it to turn it into a greeting card.  Then I printed images of bees, butterflies, frogs, jelly beans, and flowers.  They were colored with copic sketch markers.  My sister, Lizzy helped me color the flower images.  Then everything was cut out and some were pop dotted to the front of the card.

Another Mardi Gras painting

I mentioned in an earlier posted that I was doing a series of paintings to hang in my office at work. I have one wall that I am devoting to Mardi Gras. This is going on that wall. I used my stickles to bring some bling to the painting.  I outlined the mask in stickles and the yellow dots on the mask has stickles.

Crab Fleur de lis

This one is one of my creation.  I found a outline of a fleur de lis, and then I look for a clip art of the outline of a crab. Took the crab and repeat all of the fleur de lis and then I had to create newspaper. 

For not having a picture to copy I think I painted this one really well and in fact this is one of my favorites.  I have to stay the challenge I gave myself I think I did pretty well.

Mardi Gras Fleur de lis

Here is a painting that I completed for my office. It's okay but really wishing I would have changed it some, not liking the bottom of the fleur de lis to much.
