Another Year!

Well, it's been another year since I have posted.  But I have made lots of cards.  I'd like to show them here now and my intention is to keep up to date this year!  First up is a little card I made for a young man turning 9.  This is a diamond pop up card.  (Here's a tutorial: Here)

And here's another pop up I made for my Dad:

More from 2013

Moving along to some other cards I made this year:

Here's a card I made with Hero Arts Stamps, cutting
the panels myself.

 Here's one I made for my niece during her

recovery from surgery.  It's made with 
Spellbinder's Deckled Rectangles, colored
with Copics.

Here's one made for my friend when her father
passed away.

Here's the first waterfall card I've ever done.  I made it for my daughter's birthday. Here's a tutorial for you: waterfall card.
Video by Dawn--I love her tutorials!

This is a Baby Girl Congrats card for my niece: (I did the weaving)

This is the first card I've used my little Janome sewing machine for:

And Here's a silly card I put together for my husband on Father's Day:

Teacher's Pet - 2013-

And here's a little project I did for my son's teacher's and aides.  I used toilet rolls for the bodies and bought the little cages on sale at Hobby Lobby.  There's lots of posts on Pinterest or Google for these little guys.  I put Owl Themed necklaces and earrings inside the owl bodies as an extra little gift.
