Hello! This is my submission for the fabulous MFT Idol contest Kim has going on. I took an empty Propel water mix-in box and covered and decorated it up MFT style making it into a gift card holder box/purse!!! See the other pics for the box before it was decorated and close-ups. The poodle has liquid applique to make her fur "fluffy" and the bottle was made shiny using Diamond Glaze. Thanks for looking!

Hello! I got this very cute, but basic, card kit from Hobby Lobby on clearance a while back. I needed a gift for one of my co-workers, this worked perfectly. I jazzed it up a little by adding ribbon, rhinestones, dew drops, buttons, brads, flowers, glitter, etc. It turned out much cuter than the basics that came with the kit. Cheers!

Well, for the first time in a long time, I pulled an all-nighter brainstorming for My Favorite Things February Guest Designer Challenge. But I think it was worth it because I really like the way it turned out.
This was a fun challenge, this is one of my favorite color combos. The circle on the front is actually the front flap of the card, so the circle opens and the back flap is the page with the foiled hearts. I busted out my Coluzzle for the first time in a long time to make the front flap round.

I've been thinking about this whole blog thing for a good 6+ months now. I guess I've decided if I want my cards and creations and life to be shared with more people, I'd better do it! Give me a little time, I'll be updating with photos, cards, etc. Welcome!
