Changitos, Changitos and more Changitos!

More Changitos!  I made the pool guy card last night.  I think he is just simply adorable.

For the thank you card, I cased this card from SCS.  I went ahead and used the cuttlebug for the green piece and I added some stamped circles to the yellow card base.   I don't like the stamped circles and I feel the paper is too bright for my liking, so back to the drawing board with the thank you Changito!

I have also been working on a quilt for Faith.  For my summer job all three kids are working on making quilts.  They inspired me to get the sewing machine out and start getting some of my many projects finished (some of them need to be started!).  I won't post pictures of Faith's quilt until it is finished and sent to her for her birthday.  

Have a great day!

Card Making

Yesterday my stamping friend Jane came over for lunch and stamping.  I decided to make some stuffed shells from scratch and she completed the meal with salad and garlic bread, it was so yummy.  We were pretty full from eating that it was hard to get started stamping. 

I wanted to do Beate's Sketch Challenge and saw this card on SCS and decided I would do some casing.  So I went looking for my stamp set and realized I had put it in a box to give to Jane. When I moved I sorted through my stamps and decided to give them to Jane, that way I could still use them:)  So I grabbed it back out.   I swore I had the paper I needed to make the card but I spent 15 minutes looking through all my paper for it to find nothing.  So I improvised and this is my version of the card.  It's probably going to go to my brother for his birthday. 

Have a great day!

Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to all the dads!  I have been having fun at my summer job.  I am doing various activities with three kids to keep them from sitting in front of the TV, computer, video games, etc.  One of the first projects we did was learn how to make origami shirts to put on Father's Day cards.  Here are two of the kids' cards.
