Bird Sympathy Card with envelope

Today's post is a cute little sympathy card made for a fellow GIBBS sister. I am unsure what cut I used- but the cartridge was Wild Card. I added some Viva Decor to spruce it up- but kept it simple. Sympathy cards are so hard to make. The vellum  message says: "Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal"

Let me know what you think!

Friend Card

I made this card for a GIBBS sister. I am really happy with how it turned out. I used the Wild Card Cart. This was the doily cut- but I am unsure on the size. I used some primas, Stampin Up! pearls, a button, and some hemp twine to dress this up. I used a vellum sticker I had in a pack for cards. I hope you like it as much as I do!

Sorry for being MIA!

Hello to my fellow followers! I am sooooo sooooo sorry for being so far behind on posting! I have been busy planning my hubbys surprise 30th birthday party (which was a success!), bowling, kids stuff, you name it... oh, and the hubby and I went on a weekend getaway that was fantastic! We went to a casino and came out $140 ahead! :) Always a good thing right?

Todays post is to show you what I have been working on since the beginning of last week. I'll only show a few examples, because there are so many. I will be selling these at my craft shows- but have started selling on Etsy. Here is my Etsy shop:

Please let me know what you think! Have a wonderful day!

Cassandra's Altered Dry Erase/ Chore Board

Happy Friday Everyone!
Sorry its been a bad posting week. I hope to get more posted next week! Today's post is to show you the Dry Erase board I bought at Target, altered, and hung on my daughters door. She'll like it for now- til it lists more chores! HAHA!

I paid $2.50 for the board, it included 2 magnets, 1 magnetic dry erase marker, and a magnetic eraser.
I decorated the black magnets with Prima flowers and some bling. I covered chipboard letters with MS Garnet fine glitter. Before I applied the glitter I ran it through my Xyron (face down) so I"d have an even coverage for the glitter. After I applied the glitter, I took Glossy Accents and put over the top to prevent a glittery mess, and give the chipboard a nice smooth shine to it. After I let them dry overnight, I applied them to the top of the dry erase board frame using Zots (a very sticky and thick version of glue dots). I then took more primas and some tulle and made a pretty flower to put next to her name. I applied the flower using Zots. Thank you for looking! I'd love to hear what you think! Comments are great!
