Happy 1/2 Birthday Lil' Chick!

Mornin' hens!
Today is Lil' Chick's half birthday.  Ya know I have to make her a card for EVERY occasion right?  Yup, she's got her momma wrapped around her finger.  Tee-hee!  Wouldn't have it any other way.


Ok, so I stamped the little image on the bottom right corner and masked off the balloon the owl was holding.  I wanted a dimensional card so I decided to die cut this big balloon and then just extended the string from the owl's wing and attached it to the bottom of the die cut balloon.  I backed the opening with some grey cardstock that I also die cut the words "happy birthday" from and inlaid red cardstock where the letters were.  I drew little black circles and filled each with a white gel pen to coordinate with the present.  To finish, I added some shading to the balloon, and few sequins for a fun confetti look.  Okee dokee, that's it for me today!  I hope you hens have a FABULOUS Friday!  {{{hen hugs}}}

One Design - Two Valentines!

Morning' hens!
I thought I'd share a couple of cute Valentine's Day cards with you, in case you need a last minute design idea.  I used this one design and made BOTH my grandson Jaxon's card and the DH's card.  Woot-woot!  Simplicity at it's BEST!


Ok. so above is Jaxon's card.  I just LOVE the sentiment.  Tee-hee!  So TRUE! The donuts were cut using my Silhouette Cameo and the sentiment was printed using my Canon printer.  Two of my FAVORITE crafting products.  CLICK HERE for a list of my TOP 10 crafting products.  


And with just a change to the sentiment (and one less donut), it's a perfect card for the DH!  Ta-dah!  What'd I tell ya!  SUPER SIMPLE, right?  I love the bright yummy colors too!  Hmmm, this post is makin me hungry!! LOL!  


Here's a close up of the donuts.  You can see the sparkle from the Wink of Stella pen and the Stickles.  They look like real sprinkles don't they?  Mmmmmm....  Am I makin you hungry yet?  Tee-hee!  Okee dokee, that's it for me today!  I hope you hens have a MAH-VELOUS Monday!

Note: The MG6220 is no longer available thru Amazon but the IX6820 is a newer model with 4 star reviews and is cardstock compatible as well, based on the reviews I've read. I've listed this model in my supply list above if you're interested but this is not the model I own.

Merry Christmas!

Mornin' hens!
Sorry for the lack of posts but I've been all caught up in the hustle and bustle of Christmas!  Which I LOVE by the way!  I can hardly wait for the big man in the red suit to stop by!  Ho-Ho-Ho!


Anyways, this is my Christmas card for 2015.  I just love how it turned out.  I made 30 of these in one weekend.  The three images are all from the Silhouette on line store.  I'll put the links in my supply list below.  The only thing I changed was a branch for the red bird to sit on.  I added it by drawing two cut lines between the trees and added a curve to it.  One bit of advice that made the assembly line go faster was to adhere the deer's breast to the middle birch tree first, and then use spray adhesive all over the back of the deer and trees.  Trying to glue each tree was way to time consuming and the spray adhesive worked like a charm!  To finish, I rounded the corners, added the red bird with some foam tape, and tied red satin ribbon around the bottom.  Okee dokee, that's it for me today.  I wish each of you a VERY Merry Christmas!
