April Birthdays

One of my sisters, Lucy, turned 47 this month and here is the card and gift purse I made for her.

Paper is Recollections and K and Company. I embossed only half of the card and then heat embossed the 47. I definately need more practice with heat embossing. Flowers are Making Memories; ribbon from Michael's. I picked up the purse from Beth over at
My Cricut Scrapbooking. I bought a big bag of Darice rhinestones at Michael's with a 50% coupon. It's a bargain, you get one pound of assorted colors and sizes. To adhere I used Tombow Mono Adhesives Metal Liquid Glue, worked like a charm! It dried pretty fast too without the heavy fumes of Zip Dry.

My little brother, Robert, the baby of the family, turned the big 4-0! I got 40 Sucks lollipop bouquet idea from Denise over at Paper Past Time. I recycled a peanuts container and used a 4" Styrofoam ball. I also created a card with his nickname, but I don't dare to share it. He hates his nickname, which by the way I gave him when I was just a toddler. LOL
