Glass Mouse

I think this is such a cute mouse.  Now I would never say that about a real mouse and would probably be yelling for DH to come and get it.  This one won't make a mess or bite or anything else that would cause you stress.  Doesn't he have the cutest smile.

Glass Ladybugs

Before I leave the ladybug theme, I want to show you Jim's glass ladybugs.  This isn't the best picture and I tried enhancing but this is the best I could do.  They are much cuter IRL.  He makes them in two sizes, both on the small side.  I like the bigger of the two because it shows more detail.

Ladybug Napkin Card

I promise this is the last ladybug for awhile.  This card was not made using the set I recently started using again even though it is the same theme.  This goes back to make theme of a month ago when I was stuck on making napkin cards.

Ladybugs on Film

I wish I could say this was my idea but it is another Pinterest find.  As always when I get out a se,t I have to make a few different variations.  I like using the red polka dot paper when I make a card with ladybugs.  My supply of it is shrinking so I guess I make a lot more ladybug cards than I can remember.

Blue Morning Glories

So this is the piece I promised a few days ago.  Now that I look at it closer, it is not the same flower,  This one is a morning glory and hummingbird.  So many of his pieces remind me of my youth.  My parents had morning glories in the back yard and had a few humming bird feeders.

Blue Poppy

This looks like a poppy to me.  Do poppies come in blue?  My parents had poppies planted right at the bottom of their front porch steps and they were an orange/red color.  That is the color I usually think of for poppies.  He has another piece I will post that has a very similar flower but it also has other things with it.  I will post it in a few days.

Ladybug Birthday

Every year I try to get rid of a few stamps sets that I am not using.  Before I do, I try to make a few cards with it to decide if I really want to keep it.  What do you think happened when I used this one?  If you said you kept it, you would be correct.

Celtic Wolf

Sorry there haven't been any new posts.  I thought I had posts scheduled through the end of August, but I don't.  I do have some already done for September so I guess that was what I was thinking of.  This is another of Jim's celtic designs.  I called it a wolf so I hope that is what it is.  I like the wood like glass that he has in the background.

Spring Flowers Napkin Card

So easy to make this card and it is SO nice.  The butterfly and greeting are the only things I stamped.  The ribbon on the bottom covers the fact that the napkin is a bit short for the card base.  I have made napkin cards twice now in class and they want more.  I told them one more time and then we are taking a break from them.  They all bring in their napkins and have a napkin exchange.  So FUN.
