Today with my creative mojo in full throttle ahead, I made these adorable flowers with button centers for the your paper pantry AAugust flower swap.
The top flower is made using a dryer sheet the other three flowers are made using dies from my Sizzix die collection. I used the green buttons I had on hand.
The bird is a retired bird with vine also from Sizzix. I used my Accucut Grand Marc machine to cut out the bird cage from one of their dies. I used lightweight chipboard covered in decorative paper. I really like the details and how pretty this piece came together.
Now to create a small hostess gift and it will go postal most likely next week.
I hope you guys will give this project a try. It was easy to do and I really had a great time with the creative process.
Stamp Happy be a blessing!

Turns out stupid head was viewing child pornography at our house over the mother's day weekend. Our property has been totally cleared and returned to us after more than 9 months.
Craig was originally arrested and charged in January on one count possession and one count of distribution. Together they carry a mandatory 30 years in prison. If the case does not go before a jury or they accept a plea he will be in prison a minimum of 6 years. If it goes to a Jury we are looking at 92-120 years.

Miss me yet?!
We lost power on Friday July 3, 2013 and it was not restored until late on Wednesday.
Once power was restored I went full force to catch up on the massive mountain of laundry and house work that needed completion.
Our family was very fortunate. We have a generator that we used to run our two refrigerators. With the excessive heat, we purchased a small air conditioning unit which we ran on the main level of our home. We also slept on our hide-a-bed sofa to keep as cool as possible with the given circumstances.
It was difficult to not have power for this amount of time, however we got through the ordeal.
I normally do not join charm swaps, but I really loved the idea of using puzzle pieces as charms. I used my Accucut die puzzle for the shape the charm is attached to. It is from the camp activities die set. The charms are cut from shrinky dink brand plastic stamped on one side, alcohol inked on the opposite side and then shrank with a heat tool.
I used a Hero arts bugs and insects stamp set with Staz on Ink for the small puzzle pieces. These where cut with the retired sizzix puzzle piece die.
The beads where purchased from my local craft store. I used #20 gauge wire for the actual charm.
