It is Wed and Little Red Wagon Challenge Time again! This week Joanne has provided us with the challenge to "Put a window in it" So here is my interpretation of the Challenge...
I handcut a birdhouse and used my spellbinder die to cut a circle through the card once it was attached. I then placed the Sentiment pop dotted up in the centre of the circle. This way the Sentiment is on both the inside and the outside of the card! The shingles on the birdhouse was made using a Border strip on the opposite side of the Barcode of the paper! I am loving that paper companies are thinking of things like this these days!
Here is the inside of the card!
I added some ribbon and tied it in a bow! Just because I can never use enough ribbon!

I cut the word Grow using the "Spring" Slice cartridge and added alittle stickles and a felt flower I diecut myself with some added bling! I also cut the butterfly in brown felt using my spellbinder die.
The flowers are made using primed canvas that I cut with my flower spellbinder dies in different sizes... I then stamped them using a polka dot background stamp from PTI. I also cut the felt using spellbinder dies and PTI flower dies... the leaves are another Slice cut - I attached them all with the fabric brads I made using the Itop and glued the flowers and leaves to wooden Skewers (who says you can not use kitchen stuff for scrapbooking! LOL)
Inside the can I added some small rocks to hold the skewers in place and added a little plant material to cover the rocks...
I had a blast making this and was so happy that I used the tin finally... like seriously I think I have had it for like 5 years now!

Here is a close up of the clouds - I cut one of the clouds from the cloud patterned paper and used it as a template to cut one from the matching papers to the flowers I had cut out! since I went gung ho with the flowers I added one up with the clouds as well!
I cut down one of the 3x3 cards from the patterned paper line and used it for my journaling and added a little scalloped board in some of the brown patterned paper. I also added a little Stickles to the centre of the flowers to give them a little more pop!
I had some fun with Ribbon using a red ruffled one with a brown one that I scrunched every inch or so using some embroidery thread! I also added a felt scallop border under the ribbon!
I cut the title from two of the patterned pieces of paper to match the rest of the layout!
Details: Patterned Paper: Pebbles Tee House Collection, Felt, Embroidery Floss, Ribbon from my stash and Stickles.

The challenge this week on Little Red Wagon is to use Brads! I managed to use two types of brads on this flower pot card!
Details: Patterned Paper is from the Pebbles "Tree House Collection" and the one patterned paper just screamed to have the flowers hand cut! The Sentiment is PTI and the Ribbon was from my stash. I actually broke open my ITOP from it's package to try it out for one of the brads... I used a little piece of cut fabric to make the heart brad and applied a little bling flower on top of the heart... The other 2 brads are just some medium sized ones and I also applied a little bit of bling to the centre of them!

Well it is Mothers day today and we have a rather busy day around here... I made the above cupcake box and pick for a cupcake for my Mother. I wanted something else in addition to the usual flowers I give her as a little surprise. I also made one for Wayne's Mom, my Sister in law and her mom as we are having my family over for a little bbq of chicken and shrimp!
Details for the cupcake - The box is cut with my cricut Using the sweet Treats Cartridge. I cut some extra flowers and added them on two sides of the box. I also used some k and co patterned paper and my circle punch to crate centres for the flower and in the center of the polka dots added a little yellow stickles! The Happy Mothers day pick was made using the Mothers Day 2010 Cricut solutions cartridge! Inside is a homemade chocolate cupcake with some sprinkles! I hope they enjoy!
To everyone who reads this Happy Mother's Day!
