Just a little something I created for Valentine's day. I used Vibrant paper from Walmart and white card stock. I will add a couple embelishments, but wanted to share file. I created in Craft Robo 4.4 . Here is theGSD file.

Well I do love a challenge. Here is the challenge, thanks to Lisa: Go to where you store your photos on your computer. Go the the SIXTH (6) folder and pick the SIXTH (6) photo. Post that photo on your blog along with a SHORT story about it. Tag SIX (6) people and leave a comment on their blog or email them letting them know you chose them. Here's mine. My almost 7month old granddaughter.

My mother makes 50-60 loom hats for newborns at the local hospital. She gave one of the hat to my granddaughter. But as you can see, she is not a newborn. Sadly, the hat is toooooo small.

I am sending my photo challenge to:

Spring Card and 6" Envelope

This birthday card was accompanied by a certificate to Jackpot, Nevada. Graphics are from Swiss dot embossing file used for the back ground with my Cuttlebug. Added Enjoy brad and cute little dice beads for embellishments. Here is the link to instructions for spring card by Sandy Hulsart.
Instructions for 6"Square Envelope
  1. Start with a 9"x 6" envelope (half card size)
  2. Fold one end down 3"
  3. Do not seal  flap shut. 
  4. On the folded end of the envelope, line up a CD to the top and center.
  5. With a pencil trace the bottom edge of CD to the fold line. 
  6. Still do not seal the flap.  
  7. Cut only the back layer of the envelope on the fold. Then cut the pencil drawn semi-circle.I have placed a colored paper between the front and back to show the cuts.
  8. Now seal the flap closed.
  9. Erase the pencil marks.
  10. If desired, cut a coordinating paper 5"x 5 3/4". Add adhesive only to the top edge of color paper. Slip paper inside and press the adhesive down at the top. Fold flap over.
  11. Insert finished card after you addressed the front. I plan on sealing shut with a sticker.

Cake Slice Box

Waiting for a small gift or special note, this cake slice box is not yet sealed. I turned the tabs in before I laminated the outside, allowing for better contact for my adhesive. I will seal the flap closed with wide packing tape that will magically disappear into the lamination when applied. Graphics for the slice are from Delicious Sweets by Peggy Jo Ackley, and can be found at I am working a few changes to the template. I would like a rounded closure instead of flat. I will post template once I make my changes.

Origami Flower

My granddaughter and I saw this youtube instruction for a $3 flower. Here is the link and pdf. The post is half way down the page. I suggest that you make it out of plain paper first. It is easier to fold. But you don't get a crisp center to your flower unless you use dollars.

Hottie Wand

Help!! I just hate posting something that I can not give credit.  This hottie wand is magic and can solve many problems brought on by hot flashes.  I am working the author of the poem. Hope to have the source by Monday. 

The wand is a tree shaped all-day sucker from Walmart. It could be used for an over-the-hill birthday as well. I printed the image and poem on gloss broucher paper. Green star garland is hot glued to the edges and metalic curly ribbon from the dollar store.  The graphic was emailed to me a long time ago. Laurie Furnell has some cute senior graphics on that would work nicely.
