I love seeing people make cards with the same image and getting different looks. It helps me be able to look at my own stamps in different ways so that I get the most use out of them. After quitting my other job a few months ago, my stamp budget took a hit so I have been enjoying this exercise in creativity! I decided to make another one using my favorite colors this time. I love this summer mat stack that I got from DCWV, it was full of yellows, oranges and reds.

This the first shaker card I have made. I started this this cute digi, It's a Party and sized it to fit inside my largest scalloped circle Nestability, then colored it with Copic markers. I filled the shaker with little bead confetti that matched the colors of my card. I added some pink eyelets and ran my orange ribbon through the eyelets and then tied little bows. Paper is from the Paper Studio, brads are from my stash and the beads and ribbons came from Jo-Ann's.

For my projects today, I decided to make things using the Birthday Party Favor Digis. I think this is one of the best examples of why digis are so great; they can be sized to whatever your project is and you can create an entire matching party set from invitations to treats to decorations all using the same images and coordinate all your party goods. One of my favorite things about a birthday party are the treats and activities. I remember going to parties as a child and getting that little goodie bag of treasures to take home with me. Now as an adult, I have a non-crafting friend that lets me make all the treats and treasures for her daughters' treat bags. I started with these fun mazes.

I even decorated the inside of the card, using the same patterns that are on the front of the card. My love letter was written with a gold metallic pen.

First of all, thanks for all the get well wishes. I did go to the doctor today and nothing is broken, I am just sore and need to take it easy for the next few days. I can't go back to work until Friday so I should have lots of time to color. I don't have any Mardi Gras images and when Shirley's 2 Girls released these, I knew I wanted them! There are three images in all and I will be using them all over the next week or so. I think Kip and I are going to have a few friends over for dinner and everything you will be seeing will be what I will use for that dinner. My first project used the image Bourbon Street. I wanted to make a menu board. I started with a plain clip board and painted it with black chalk board paint. I sized my image to the size I thought would be good for the size of the board, printed it out and colored it with Copics and a metallic gold pen. I also used some green and purple glitter glues. The image is mounted onto purple and green card stocks before I added it to my board. I added green, purple and gold ribbons from Hobby Lobby on the clip to cover it up. Not sure this is the final menu, but these are things I know how to make. I haven't ever made a King Cake all by myself though. I have assisted and made them with a friend before though.
