February/March Crafts :)

Well real life has gotten away from me - My new baby Collin (born Feb 1st) has a bit of a cold - he's really onry and needs his mom - I took him to the dr's last week and get this - he's up to 12 lbs 11 oz! OH MY GOSH! He was only 8 lbs 6 oz when he was born! Can't tell me this kid doesn't get enough to eat!

The puppies were born on Feb 14th - all 9 of them! YIKES! They're getting big now -if you stop by my house anytime during the day you'll fall over your feet just trying to get in the back doors. A lot of the neighborhood kids come over after school to play with them - they're really cute and very energetic!
They'll be ready for new homes on Easter weekend - WHOO HOO! We have 3 sold!



Now onto my crafty stuff - I have been working on a few swaps off and on - nothing huge but a little something :)

Worked on a few cards for my Let's Swap Card group -also sent in a few of these for Dawn's Monthly card swap -
I found my old "flowers Filled" stamp set - the first stamp set I got from SU!
Most of these have been cased from SC but changed a little (at least I tried :)


This card was made using flowers filled - just the stem then I used a prima flower and a thank you stamp for a thank you card swap :)



Another Flower's Filled card -



AND the last Flowers filled - used Prima flowers instead of the stamped flowers :) I like this one :) The color of the boots and flowers don't match all that perfect but I think it turned out ok :)


NEXT - Ok On Feb 6th there was a stamp class at Hires - Since Collin was born on Feb 1st I missed the class - but I told Jamie (my SU Consultant) that I wanted the cards in a jar kit anyways -
well a few weeks after I was back on my feet from having Collin I went over to Jamie's house and she gave me the cards in a jar kit - she photo copied each card so I could SEE how they're done instead of me trying to figure it out by reading how it's done :)
SOO here's how it turned out


Here is what some cards look like - all are 3X3 cards with envelopes Each card is different - I made 24 cards - Used the... what's it called again? Celebration sticker/paper packet? Something like that? Sorry I'm too lazy to go in the other room to get my book to look it up :) But I THINK that's what it's called -




Here is the lid/top of the jar -


And here is what the jar filled with the cute little 3X3 cards looks like :)




OK now we're all caught up with what I've made so far - I'm going to get out my new Silly Sea Life and Very Punny stamps this Saturday for my next batch of cards - For April's card swap we're doing Mother's Day/Spring/Flowers - Hum, maybe silly sea life and very punny wont work very well with those themes :( Ok fine then - I'll just mix and match sets and I'll show you what I come up with when I'm finished - hopefully I'll have time to post them before next month! :)

Thanks for reading
and have a GREAT day!
