You are Toad-Ally Awesome

This little toad makes me happy!  Isn't he a cutie!


This stamp set is from MFT and is called Springtime Critters.  The background is a panel I made a few weeks ago using a finger nail polish technique.  I love how it came out.  The colors are very vivid.

For this technique you need a container big enough to submerge a piece of card stock.  Start by filling the container with water.  Add the finger nail polish by drops until the surface is covered.  You need to act quickly.  Place the card stock on top of the polish and push under water.  Lift it out and allow to dry thoroughly.  It is a fun background to make and use.

The Recipe:

MFT Springtime Critters
MFT Blueprints 31
MFT Cross Stitch Circle die

Carrot Box Treats

When I saw this die, I knew I was going to have to get it. These little treats are so cute!







I had all kinds of trouble with this die.  It would cut the cutting lines and, also, the fold lines. It was very frustrating.  Customer Service said they had no trouble with it and that I should use a heavier card stock and put washi tape over the fold lines.  Finally, at the suggestion of my husband, I used an emery board and filed the fold lines down a bit.  Now it cuts much better and only on the lines that should be cut.

Flat Stanley Project

We were invited by our grandson, Donovan, to participate in the Flat Stanley Project his second grade class was doing.  If you aren't familiar with Flat Stanley, he is a little boy who had a bulletin board fall on him and smash him as flat as a piece of paper.  There is a series of books about his adventures. We were asked to take Stanley around our hometown and document our adventure.


We had to color Stanley, and I put him in a Whiteland Warrior sweater from our local high school. Our town is rather small, but we were able to go to a few places.  We visited Proctor Park which was created to honor Veterans, current military, police officers, firemen and first responders.  We took Stanley to our favorite pizza place for a quick lunch, and then spent the afternoon at Rascal's Fun Zone.  He had a great time and we did too!  To finish off the day, we went to a local ice cream shop for a sweet treat.  It was yummy!



Our day was documented with pictures and put into a little picture book.  I, also, made bookmarks for the entire class.  I hope they like them!

Birthday Wishes for Becki

I have a dear friend, Becki, who is having a birthday.  I made this card for her.


I bought the PTI Anniversary set last year and never used it.  I don't know why because the flowers are gorgeous.  The set is called Painted Petals.  I pulled it out and played yesterday.  I'm loving the way it came out, especially when I paired it with their Polka Dot Parade patterned paper.
