Mom's Birthday Present and Card

For my mom's birthday I decided to make her something this year. I took an empty pickle jar and cleaned it out and then glued some patterned paper where the label would normally be. Then I glued these colorful flowers over it and I used my i-Rock to make a jeweled center. Then I filled it with Jelly Belly jellybeans. Yum!
I did the same thing for the lid. I put a piece of adhesive ribbon around the edge of the lid to cover up the green pickle decoration already on the lid.
Here is the birthday card that I made for my mom. I used another RAQ's card sketch for the template. I used the Cuttlebug Happy Birthday embossing folder. The candles are made using a candle slim edger punch. I used my Platinum Stickles on the flame part of the candles to make it look like "real" lit candles. The heart is a Julie Bowen heart felt cut-out.

Matt's Valentine's Day Card

Here is the Valentine's Day card that I made for Matt. I am really happy with how it turned out. I used an old RAQs challenge sketch for the card sketch idea. The lips are from the Love Struck cart and are cut at 1.5" and then I used the X-Mas Red stickles to give it that shimmery lipstick effect. My sweet husband got me a body pillow for Valentine's Day. I love it...
...and so does Macy! :)

Summer's 15th Birthday Card

I made this card for my step-daughter Summer's 15th birthday. I was so happy with how it turned out. It took me FOREVER to figure out what I was going to do, had a bit of scrapper's I used a card sketch from an old RAQ's card challenge. The top is done using the D'Vine Swirls Cuttlebug embossing folder and then I used Star Dust Stickles to really make it pop. The ribbon is from American Crafts. And the number 15 is green glittered American Crafts Thickers. Here are some more pictures from her birthday...

Above is the birthday girl with some daisies that Matt and I bought her.

Here is a picture of her birthday cake. Her favorite colors are hot pink and lime green. The cake is chocolate with vanilla buttercream. We ordered it from a girl here on base who is trying to start her own cake business, Bee's Batter. Summer loved it!
