New Happy Birthday Cards
I took a little break at the beginning of the year, but now I'm back to working on projects and getting things done!
One of the things I did was buy a large cabinet for storage in my craft room. It is making everything look much better. I still have a bit to do and then I'll show you a photo. I'm not much for knick knacks all over the place, preferring a clean look instead.
One of our grandsons just had a birthday as well. Here is the card I made for him.
It's kind of hard to see, but I used the happy birthday Cuttlebug folder on the white background. The papers were Graphic45 and Bo Bunny.
My self healing mat, which can be seen in the background of these photos, was so dirty that I decided to take a Mr. Clean Eraser to it.
This mat has had a lot of wear!! When I worked for Rainbowear, all my sewing was done with it. I've glued, embossed, cut, painted, gesso'd, pearlex'ed, mod podged and whatever else you can think of, on top of this mat. It has had a long industrious life!!
So I was pleased that the Mr. Clean Eraser actually did a fine job. It doesn't look brand new, but it's sure better than it was. Almost new! I was pleased!
Well, that's all for today! I have some new images coming out with Squigglefly soon, and I've posted some new images in my Etsy shop as well.
If you missed it, my last post on this blog had a FREE digi...check it out!
