Happy Birthday LouLou!

Hi there hens!  Today is my good friend LouLou's birthday!  I made her this little keychain and card to match!  I was so STINKIN proud of myself!!  I just love how they both turned out.

For the keychain, I used the cute die from Papertrey Ink (see links at the bottom of this post), felt, and embroidery thread.  To make the key fob a little sturdier, I placed a piece of chipboard between the two layers.

For the card, again I used another cute die from Papertrey Ink and this cute little girl from Mama Elephant.  I thought the image and sentiment were perfect, since LouLou lives in Switzerland.  Okee dokee, that's all for me today.  I hope you hens have a great day!  {{{hen hugs}}}

Happy 11 month Birthday Jaxon!

Mornin' hens!
 Today Jaxon is 11 month's old!  OMG, I can hardly believe he's almost a year old.  

I couldn't think of a theme for August so I just went with this little "hot potato" cowboy from YNS.  Tee-hee!  That's what I call him anyway.  LOL!  The inside reads, "Lasso up some fun and have a rootin' tootin' birthday!"  Love it!  I colored him with Kooh-i-noor pencils which are FABULOUS to color on kraft cardstock with.  There are several different kinds but I prefer the woodless ones.  They're so buttery smooth, and blend so nicely just by layering color over color (no Gamsol required).  Okee dokee, that's it for me today.  I hope you hens have a SUPER Saturday!  {{{hen hugs}}}

Purple Onion Designs Anniversary Sale

Mornin' hens!  Here's a little card I made with one of the cutest POD images evah! The flag is just a blank rectangle so you can design your own. How cool is that?  Since I live in the US, I made the flag resemble our flag.  Notice I said, "resemble".  LOL!  I couldn't possibly get 13 stripes or 50 stars on that little space, so I improvised.  An artist I'm NOT! {{snort!}}  You get the picture though....

Anyhoo, I stamped the images onto some Neenah Solar White CS and colored them with my Copics. Then I fussy cut the images out and paper pieced them onto the Desert Storm card base.  Using my Prismacolor pencils, I drew in some ground with grass sprigs and stamped the sentiment on the bottom right.  I drew some doodle lines around the edges and embossed some gold stars in the background.  I really love how the colors pop off the Kraft, don't you?  To finish, I rounded the two bottom corners and added a few white dots on their cheeks.  Wanna see more inspiration?  Head on over to the Purple Onion Designs blog for some AWE inspiring eye candy from their fabulous design team.
