Diamond Fold Card

I am trying to learn different folded cards and so, here is a diamond fold card. The sentiment is "Happy Birthday" even though the picture is not good quality.  I guess I need to concentrate on getting better lighting for picture taking.

Embroidered Baby Gift Set

I had a request for a baby gift set and so I set out searching my stash of embroidery designs and found this sweet flower font.  The baby's name is Elizabeth Anne.  This is the set I finished yesterday.

Finishing up the stitching.

Pink plush baby blanket with satin trim.

Name doesn't look straight but it really is.
 It is a very soft blanket.

 Stitched on a diaper. Diapers make great burpies.
The small letters are from the Brother fonts called Curlz.

Fall colors

I was looking for some fall colors among my stash of embellishments and found some paisley dimensional stickers that I have had for some time.  I thought it was high time I utilized them, so I set looking for some coordinating colors of paper.  I also found some scripture sentiment stickers that I have had for some time too and wanted to use them as well.  Here are my creations.  They are not elaborate, but very simple.  Oh well...simple is best these days.

Embellishments from K and Company

Another Carousel Birthday Card

The month of September has 3 birthdays in our family, mine, my granddaughter who is 2 and my little nephew who is also 2.  I was playing with the carousel in the Carousel Cricut Lite cartridge.  It is really a neat cartridge.  Here is another pop-up carousel card.  I had actually cut it the wrong size for my granddaughter's card but was still able to use it.  Also, I didn't like the color so I cut a yellow one that worked better.  The carousel is actually 3 layers. Top layer covers the color I didn't think worked but I kinda of like it even better with the three layer of color. Pictures don't show the card very good.
This is going out to my little nephew.

Carousel Cartridge Birthday Card

Today is my little granddaughter's birthday.  She is two years old.  She is so sweet and quite a little ham.
