Happy Birthday Justin

So on Valentine's Day my 7 year old came home with the most adorable homemade bracelet from her classmate Justin.  His birthday came and we just HAD to make him something special! So my daughter and I came up with this little plane card.  I cut the plane using a Sizzix die from the transportation set. I found it on clearance at Joann's for $4.97!  I added a pewter brad on the propeller and cuddlebugged the wings with the swiss dot folder.  For the background I used a technique I learned here and then stamped some trees along the bottom.  I just typed and printed the "Happy Birthday Justin" and then cut it out and notched the ends.  I  rolled it around on a pen a little so that it would look like it was blowing in the wind and tied it onto the plane with some twine.  This sounds like a lot but was really simple :) and according to Jenna "Justin thought it was cool!"

Halloween 2011

Made this Halloween card based on this tutorial.  I also used a Papertry Ink die cut for the little tag and the stamp set is Wicked Cool from Stampin Up.  Beware... the jelly beans won't last!!!  :)

Father's Day Cards 2011

So it's been forever since I've posted and I figured I might as well start somewhere lol!!!  Here are the Father's Day cards I made last year.  I learned how to make these adorable origami t-shirts here.  Can you see the resemblance??? LOL These really are simple and adorable!  Heard you can even make them with a dollar bill!!!  So FUN!!!
