Happy Easter to My Peeps


I made this cute card using the  "My Peeps" stamp set from Close to My Heart. The center peep is attached to a coiled spring mechanism that allows it to pop up. I think this card would be so cute to send to someone with a box of pink bunny peeps. Yum. I love that gooey, sugary marshmallow taste.

Hunger Games Pendant

Today is my beautiful daughter, Jennifer's, birthday. We are big fans of the Hunger Games; infact, Jennifer went and saw the midnight showing of it. To commerate her birthday on March 23, I made her this pendant of the Hunger Games. If you look closely, you can see the date "March 23." She was so happy when she opened her gift. To make the pendant, I used the poster below and printed it in a very small size. I bought the pendant and Tim Holtz bird at Michaels. They were both silver in color, but I wanted them to be gold, so I sponged on brown "Staze-on" ink and let them dry. Then I glued the "Hunger Games" words to the pendant with Liquid glass. Then I covered the whole thing in Liquid Glass and added the bird and let it dry.
