Happy Birthday Chyanne!!!!

Oh My, where DO the years go? It is hard to believe that Chyanne is 18 today and even harder to believe that Chris will be 18 three months from today as well!  As I tend to do here lately, I got a late start and waited until the last minute! Of course, I had NO clue what I was going to put on the card either. So, while browsing through digi images for another project, I found the circle with the 18 in the center- it was perfect! I printed it out on vellum and then used my Spellbinders circle to cut it out and then attached it to the spellbinders lacey circles or something similar. The lacey circle is cut out of some wrapping paper I found at the dollar store and just love it! I used some Penny Duncan Roses that were just perfect, along with some pearls and pink diamonds to spruce it up a hair. The bow (besides being lop sided and twisted) is made from plain curling ribbon I found on clearance at The Christmas Tree Store.  I DID try to make a bow on a fork, but my fork was too small to make the proper size and I was too lazy to get out the bow maker thing I have, so it really shows, LOL But, it is done and I still have about 30 minutes to spare :)  *Hugs*

I am playing with paper again!!!!

Oh my gracious, it has been SO long since I played around with paper, but I broke down tonight and made my dad a birthday card (for today, mind you, LOL). I followed directions from Water Gel Card.  I had been searching through my saved emails and bookmarks for ages to find this site again, but sadly it was lost in my pc someplace in a deep dark unknown folder, until Julie posted a link to an old project and there it was!!!! I was SO tickled to find the directions as I had totally forgotten what she said to do, LOL So, I managed to make one without too many mishaps- Ok, I had quite a few, as my baggie leaked all over the card and I had to trim wet areas off and use clips to keep the card closed to try to get it to stay closed to dry, but it all came together somewhat in the end! The fish is sorta hard to see, as I think I used a hair too much gel in my baggie!  The fishing bobber is actually red and white but I think my flash sorta messed the colors up! *Hugs*
