Had some time to do more cards! The first one was done as a special request for a teen grandson of a friend of mine.  I had picked up the stamp at Hobby Lobby awhile back and it was sitting on the shelf talking to me.
The background is Metallic Silver that is embossed with a Tim Holtz's folder, the clouds are Memory Box and the orange and white image are cut with Spellbinders Label 10 and the banner with Spellbinders Ribbon Banners.  The motorcycle is colored with Prismacolors and the side car was cut and popped up.

I also had time to play with my Cricut Imagine and the Greeting Cards Inside and Out.  First I played around with a Graduation card.
This was cut on my pearl cardstock from FasClampit.  I scored the blue edges of the card on my ScorePal and then punched the holes with the Cropadile.  I added a Jolee 3D owl sticker that doesn't show up will here.  The inside:

Next was a cute Mermaid/Surf board card.
I added glitter to accent the various pieces on the outside.  Here is the inside of the surf board which also has multiple layers.  I printed the cardstock from a pattern on the cartridge and mounted the surfboard on it.

Lastly, here is a graduation card that was mass produced for a swap that I am in.  I ran the cardstock through an embossing folder and then cut silver cardstock to the size of the window and ran it through an embossing folder too.  I added the Jolee 3D Owl stickers and within and hour had made 14 of them!
I colored one of the stars with glitter gel to finish it off.

Altered T-Shirt Neckline

Recently I came across a T-Shirt that I loved, but didn't like the way it felt when I wore it.  I decided it was because the neck binding was too high.  So, I worked on it.  Now I love the shirt and I am "fixing" other ones, too.  Here is what I did - - - -
After removing the tags (thank you to the person who decided to just print stuff on the inside of the shirt rather than having these neck ticklers), I grabbed what had been my mother's Pinking Shears.
Starting at the back, I trimmed the binding using the top stitching as a guide.  I cut just to the right of it.
Each time I moved the scissors, I placed them in the zig/zag of the prior cut and worked my way around to the starting point.
Here is my finished neckline!

Oh so much better!!!!

My Sweet Sierra's Easter Card

I love digital images.  This is from a stamp set of The Angel Company, but the stamp is very small.  I purchased the digi from Whimsy And Stars Studio etsy store and resized it to 4.75 inches wide.  The card is 5 x 7 total.  Miss Ducky's hat is flower soft and I added button wheels with button hub caps.

Happy Easter!

Here are some Easter cards that I did for my barter group.  I didn't get any made for me.  :(

These are all digital images from Clear Dollar Stamps and they come already colored!  There are background papers with some of them too.  The words are Rub-ons from My Sentiments Exactly.  Definitely fast and easy, but they look like you spent lots of time on them.

Hope you and your family have a Blessed Easter.
