Papertrey May Blog Hop Challenge

Well this isn't too CASE but it's kind of like the  challenge photo..
I had only a large image but I liked the Hydrangea so I went with it but did just the six images instead of the nine.  It came out ok.. I'll keep it  :)
I made this for the MIM Blog Hop

The perfect blend FMS #237

I'm from Seattle and don't drink coffee.. can you believe it.. No Starbucks how funny.  This is a cute little cup of TEA though  :)  Well maybe.. well not with coffee beans all over it.. guess I'll have to find a coffee drinker to give it to.  I'm putting it in my stash along with putting it in Freshly Made Sketches this week. Thanks for stopping by.

MIM #249: Make It With Money

What a fun challenge.  I have this little Geisha girl and I thought of using her fan as a money folding fan.. well that's too large a bill and too small of a fan.. so I tried her parasol.. it came out ok though I'm not sure any one could use the money now  :l   I fussy cut out her head and used foam to pop it on.  I also used a match stick to embellish the handle.. Fun, I'm including the original image so you can follow where my brain meandered.. (Good luck on that part..)  Of course this will go to MIM for the money challenge.. also to Seize the Birthday.

Sweet little baby

Love this little giraffe .. he looks like he needs a hug.  I have a friend having a baby and this card could go for a boy or a girl.  I'm hoping for a boy so I did the blankie in blue  hee hee..
This will go to the Serendipity challenge.. die cuts  .. Also to Addicted to Stamps and More.  Have a great week.
