Birthday blessings

Happy Monday! How is everyone today? Are you enjoying the spring weather? I can't believe it's already the last Monday of April?  I had several birthday's in April, today's card was made for one of my Aunt's.  

I love this button!

I am not a very good bow maker 
but I am working on it...

Jar of Love

Happy Monday! Happy Easter to everyone. My card for today was made for my sister's birthday. I used the SU Jar of Love stamp and die set. This is one of those sets I just had to have....(laughing) 
I stamped the jar on a clear piece of plastic. Using the
SU Jar of Love die cut, I cut it out and distressed
some sky blue ink on the bottom part of the jar
to have a look of water. 

I picked up these flowers  at one of those craft
yard sales and thought they would be perfect.
The added leaves and stems are die cut using paper.

The butterfly does show up in person. Maybe I
should of made it pink? 

I made a money jar inside the card. It's made of the
same plastic with a removable lid. 

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you have a blessed day!

Late birtdhay

Happy Monday. My brother-in-law had a birthday and I didn't get him a card made on time. (sad face)  I've had this sentiment from rubbernecker and I've never used it.  This was the perfect time. Could it be that I am the only one who has new crafting items they've never used?  (laughing)
Wanting to make the card look manly, I used a dark
brown CS and run it through an embossing folder. 

I added some twine and knots.

Enjoy your week!

Money Tree

Happy April! Today I am sharing a money tree I made for my TOPS group. We had our annual conference and we are required to donate a themed basket to be raffled off as a fundraiser. Our group decided to make a money tree instead of a themed basket. I had a cardboard tree I purchased from Oriental Trading (3 years ago...hee hee) that would be perfect for this project.
The tree before the money was added. I added
glitter to the tree before attaching the money.
The tree has 51- one dollar bills.

The money was attached with paper clips. It needed
some color so I added small purple flowers.

I made this box to add words of encouragement. 

After stamping funny and uplifting sayings,
the ladies in my TOPS chapter wrote
personal advice and encouragement for the winner.

I covered it in plastic wrap.
One of these days I will have a photo area instead of these ugly sheets for my photos. Maybe even a new camera....,,     Have a great day!
