My new toy....

I bought me a birthday present.  It's going to be fun to create great treats.  Oh and I do have 2 orders already for next year that will pay off my new toy.  Ready to see it?  Well here it is........

My first of these...

glass block.  I used black vinyl on the block.  I got the block about a month or so at Goodwill for $2.99.  I made a nice bow also.  Boy I need to get more of these blocks these are fun also.  TFL

Another Charger..

This one is on a dark purple plate that I got at Michaels.  Did the vinyl in a gray color.

Addicted to chargers

This is my first charger that I have made.  I took it to work and sold it plus got an order for 2 more just like it.  The font I used was French Vanilla Swirl.  Cut it out on my cricut in black vinyl.  I found online while searching for free stained glass patterns and brought into Make The Cut.

This one I put on a white square glass plate (bought 3 of them for .59 at Goodwill).  I ran out of Black vinyl so I used Brown vinyl.  It was a pain in the butt to weed, but so well worth it!  I am thinking this would look
awesome on a glass block....hmmm that will be my next project, also got a glass block 8x8 at goodwill for 2.99 with working lights.  Without further ado here is the newest  plate.

I made these boxes for something to do.  I used MTC and my cricut.  The card stock is from Michael's called Four Seasons.  I didn't have the clear page protectors for the window, so I used the wrapper that comes from the Cricut mats.  Recycling too!!  TFL  P.S.  No one told me that glittered cardstock is not easy to cut, but I learned the hard way after the first box to do multicut.  LOL

Anniversary Card

I made this for a co-worker.  It's her 9th wedding anniversary on Tuesday the (15th).  Her husbands favorite color is black, he also plays the saxophone and keyboard.  Also he does air brushing of African American people.  So I made this card with musical notes and on the inside on the flap I added a saxophone.  I also some pearls to the corners both outside and inside.  I pop-dotted the man and woman and also embossed it.  The wording inside came from her.  She loved the card and paid me $6.00.  TFL.

Cake Carrier

I got the carrier's from $ Tree.  Come home and played with some vinyl.  I think it turned out alright for my first one!  Going to make more since I bought 6 of them.  I put cupcakes inside for work tomorrow (Halloween).  I got the wrapper from Heather M's blog, I just added a slit for the tab to close.  TFL!

Went for a cruise...

last weekend on the motorcycle's to see the colors, and here is just some of what I saw.

Let me tell you, it is not easy taking pictures while riding on the back of a motorcycle.  LOL  The two guys (the one in the front) is my hubby and the other one is my brother in law.  And the hot air balloon was right outside my house.  Oh we went to Ludington, never seen the car ferry til that day.  Was a very enjoyable day, but boy was I sore from sitting that long.

Cards for co-workers

Made some cards for a couple of my co-workers.  I just got to say one thing, I think my card making has gotten alot BETTER than when I first started out.  In fact I have a couple orders for cards and they are willing to pay whatever price I am asking.  I will post those cards when I am finished with those, but here is what I do have done and they loved them too!!!

Special Order

I did these glasses for my neighbor.  She is having open heart surgery again, and her sister is coming all the way from TX to be with her for the week, paying for hotel for her adult children.  She likes Crown Royal, and on the bottom of the glasses it even has the CR symbols on it. 

First I etched the heart on both glasses, then added the purple outdoor vinyl to the top of that.  Looks pretty darn good I think.  And what did I get for doing these, well I got ribbons and lace (can use them on my cards), plus I got 2 cases of ceramic 12 x 12 tiles.  Now I like that deal in itself.

Halloween Sucker Bouquet

Made this one for Halloween, took it to work and got an order for 50 cups with fall colors with leaves for customer appreciation week.  Yeah to me!!  The thing is  is my boss is buying all the supplies, plus paying me to do this  how lucky am I.  Love making these by the way.

Lollipop Bouquet

I made this for a co-worker for her birthday.  She loved it!!  Plus got an order for another one just like it for my bosses mother.
