Cowgirl Party

This year for my daughter’s 4th birthday, I decided to go with a pink and brown cowgirl theme party. The invitations set the stage for the party.  Keeping with that theme, I created a banner and a welcome sign.  I also made a t-shirt to match the invitations and found a little foam hat that I decorated. For the table centerpieces I made tissue paper flowers and decorated soup cans for the vases.  Since the party was on a hidden driveway a bought a blank sign from home depot to put on the road. The favor bags were filled with a mini bucket, a western activity book, some farm animal tattoos, and some silly bands.  All items except the silly bands were ordered from oriental trading.  

I served sweet tea and pink lemonade for drinks to keep with the pink and brown colors.

The Birthday girl.

I found the cutest boots to complete her ensemble.

Football T-shirt

Football season is back so this year I will make some shirts to wear to my little brother’s games. This is the back of the shirt I made for DD to wear. Haven’t quite decided what I am going to do with the front yet.

Beer Mug

I had a few minutes to play this week so I pulled out some vinyl. I visited the Dollar Tree and picked up a beer mug and decided to etch it. The font is Varsity Letter and the medicine bottle is from Simply Sweet.

Copic Cards

I had some time last night to play with my copics. After taking a class I decided to invest in them. Here are two cards that I finished last night. The digital stamps can be found at

Although it doesn’t show good in the pics the tile on the floor and the glass block window have a shiny look. To create the look of the blocks I used vellum for the window and white cardstock for the floor. Using the Martha Stewart scoreboard I scored it into small squares and then I embossed it with UTEE to give it that shiny look.

Families are Forever

This week over at Platinum Scraps each designer had to complete a layout of their choice with 3 black and white photos and 3 monochromatic embellishments. The embellishments could be buttons, brads, ribbons, cuts, etc. This is my take on the layout.
