I am totally in love with this little felt elephant! I just cant get enough of him/her. 
He was only $1 at Target so I had to buy two.
I decided to go baby boy theme when altering this adorable felt picture frame, the pic is the cutest little boy ever, my nephew Tommy!

I made this card for Sketch This: Cards! # 59. The DT did an amazing job as usual, you can see all their work HERE.
 My inspiration for this card not only was the beautiful sketch but, my friend Kazan's daughters room. Her little girls room is done in whites, pale green and accented with striking black.
The room is stunning as you can all's one of Kazan's creations:)
Thanks for all your sweet comments!

#1 Friends

I made this magnetic picture frame for BBTB DT Challenge & my daughter Claudia to hang in her locker at school. The challenge at BBTB was to use # sign in the George cartridge. I have to confess I did not make this adorable felt elephant I just altered her!:) I did find her at my favorite store in the whole world Target in the $1 section!
Thanks for all the sweet comments!

Happy Birthday Alex!

The new challenge at BBTB this week is to use the "fat star" from the George cartridge. 
I instantly thought of a simple birthday card when I saw this star. My good friend Kazan and business partner, her little  baby girl Alex will be 2 on the 12th! So I whipped up this little card and attached it to a stuffed rhino along with some other goodies. Happy Birthday Alex!
My BIG announcement this week is:
