A House of Cards

Guess what we did today?





We made a snowman!!!

It actually snowed here today. We were all so excited, and we spent the morning playing in the snow. Now, it wasn't much (we are in Alabama, ya know. ;) ), but we made the most of it. Nothing beats playing in the snow with your family. So, so, so much fun!!!


While I am here, I may as well show you my Provo Craft projects for this month. We had a freebie month and got to make whatever we wanted. I decided to get in the holiday spirit, and I created something for each of the upcoming holiday: Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, and Easter.

First is a Valentine's card. For this one, I used my Cricut, Doodlecharms cartridge for the hearts, Going Places cartridge for the couple, used a little bit of Rob&Bob paper, some PC Alphabiggies stickers, and did a bunch of hand stitching.


The next is a St. Patricks Day card. I used my Cricut, Accent Essentials cartridge for the heart shapes and flourish, and some PC rub-ons.


Lastly is little Easter gift bag. For this one, I cut out the bunny shape with my Cricut machine and Doodlecharms cartridge. I used a repositionable adhesive to attach the ribbon to the Rob&Bob paper. Then, I adhered the die-cut negative to the card, and used the outline to sew around my shape. When I was done, I cut the excess ribbon and used a gum eraser to remove the repositionable adhesive. I added some brads for the eyes, a die-cut for the nose, and some stitching for the mouth and whiskers. Then adhered the paper to the bag. Voila! Cute ribbon bunny!


Well, that is it for me tonight. I am worn out from playing in the snow. (Btw, it is already gone, except for the snowman. :( ) Thanks for stopping by!
