More Projects Brought To You By the Color RED!

Here are the other projects I did over the weekend and yesterday.

My daughter's favorite color right now is red (boy I've trained her right!) This is the gift card holder I made her, using Cindy Loo. The gift card was one of the big selling points for me when I finally decided to get this cart. The front of the card is decorated with flourishes cut from the same cartridge.

This is the little flower pot holder ??? from Cindy Loo as well. I made it to hold some cash we gave DD. She asked this morning, "Why didn't you just put the cash in a card like everyone else?" (Teasing me of course!)
 I responded by telling her she has a crafty momma and that's just not possible! :) I really adore this little holder and can't wait to make many, many more! Oh, I also used Design Studio to weld the square doily from Cindy Loo on to the front, I really love how this looks!

Finally, last but not least, here is a tool box card I made for my dad's birthday next week. He is a former mechanic and all around handy guy. When I saw this toolbox cut on the Handy Man Lite cartridge I instantly thought of Dad. Again I made this one in design studio. I thought it was going to be such a quick card, but my original paper sections did not agree and there was much tearing of paper, not good! This just reinforced another one of my "golden rules" of crafting. Do NOT try to cut paper you already know does not like you! Enough said!
Well that is a wrap up of all my birthday madness for the past week (not to mention the color red!) I think I'm good for a bit now.

Oh, and here's another bit 'o wisdom from me to you....don't put pictures of gifts or cards on your blog if the recipient is a follower! :) My daughter is a follower to this blog, but I didn't think she ever really looked at it. When I gave her they typewriter card today she admitted she had seen it on the blog already! OOOOPS!! Live and learn!

See you all soon,
