Happy Birthday Makena!!


Here's a little card I made this morning for my neice. It is also the challenge at Just Magnolia this week. Make a tent card and dangle something in it. I chose to dangle a gift card from Toys R Us. She's turning 8 and has EVERYTHING!!! I had no idea what to get her as I only see her a few times a year and have NO idea what she is in to!!! This way, she can go and pick something SHE wants and it's not just another cheesy aunty gift!! LOL!!!! I hope she'll like the card I made for her. It's hard to tell in the picture, but there are rhinestones around the cut out and they are a lot blingier in real life. Also, I'd never tried paper piecing before so I tried it on Tilda's dress and her little socks. I actually had fun with this even though it was a little tedious (I make such a mess with liquid glue!!) Anyway - I like the result and I'm sure it's something I'll try again!!! Thanks for stopping by....more to come!! :)
