Here is Caitlin working on her pajamas. This is actually her sewing machine and she has had a few lessons but it has been a good year or more since she has sewn anything. Just look at the concentration on her face.
Caitlin and Brittany made a quick trip to Joanne's yesterday to buy more material for Caitlin. Caitlin surprised me with this material. Isn't it the cutest? I am now the proud owner of some very comfy and way too cute new pajama bottoms that she made for me yesterday. She also made a pair for her sister, her sister's friend and one of the daycare babies that happened to stand still just long enough for Caitlin to grab her measurements. She is now obsessed and just sew cute!!

Below is a quick Father's Day card and little gift that I made for my Dad and FIL. The little gift is actually a bottle of homemade Apple Bar-b-que Sauce that I whipped up yesterday. The bottle is a 14 oz. ketchup bottle that I emptied out. The recipe below is enough to make one bottle of sauce.
1/2 c. apple jelly

For the first I used the Tiny Bubbles and the Spots and Dots A2 cuttlebug embossing folder to give my random circles some texture and added some random bling that I found in the $1 spot at Michael's. The pattern paper used for the second example is from the DCWV summer stack from last year. If you haven't checked out the Whimsie Doodles site yet, you really should, she has the most adorable images. I have my eye on the turtle with the bar-b-que apron on.....it would be perfect for Father's Day.

The stamp is called Rock Star Anya from the Greeting Farm. I used my Copic markers to color her in. I then hand drew the guitar handle, added stitching for the strings and brads for whatever you call those thingies at the top. The "U" is a chipboard letter and the word "rock" is a rub on.
Thanks for looking...I am off to play some more with my new stamps.

Here is a birthday card that I made with one of my new stamps for one of the little boys that I watch. The stamp is called Surfer Ian. I have been on a stitching kick lately so I stitched in some waves. The bottle cap and fish brads I have had for years...I just finally found a use for them.

That's right I said freebie, so hop on over and download it for yourself, while you are there check out her other images they are too cute. I was fortunate enough to win some blog candy that she offered over the weekend and I have two more images coming my way. Yay me!!
I used my new Copics to color in the image. The sentiment is from some random stamp I had in my stash. I should mention that the freebie image comes with the sentiment "this bud's for you".
I have a link to both the blog and the Etsy store on the right of my blog...check it out.
