This is for the altered swap. After a lot of trial and error and vinyl I think I finally figured out how to do this. I have to give a lot of credit to my sister Bridgette for knowing so much about Design Studio and taking the saying and working it for me so all I had to do was cut it, THANKS BRIDGETTE!!!

This weeks scraps challenge was Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness. I really like how this turned out.
Being aware of breast cancer is really important to me. My maternal grandmother had it an had to have a double mastectomy.
I encourage you to go have a breast exam this month, I DID!
I decided to make afghan's for my two "swap sisters". The solid red one is for Vickie and the red and white one is for Catherine.
I usually crop down my pictures so only my work is in it but the kitten is just so dang cute I had to leave her in there. Her name is Nari (Spanish for fool).

FINALLY!!!! I have looked all over the internet for this pattern and the only site I could find it on was a Spanish site. I can't read Spanish but Phil can so I sent the site to him. Well he was having troubles translating so he was going to get one of other Spanish linguists to help him translate. Long story short... I was at Wal-Mart and thought I'd look in the pattern books and found this tree. (McCall's M5778) Needless to say I was ecstatic! I had Kristi help me cut the pattern and I got it finished this morning. I can't wait to do more!! I hope Catherine likes it as much as I do.

This is my first attempt at a tile. I made it for the wild card challenge yesterday. I used Catherine's favorite quote.
I went to Bridgette's blog and just tried to copy what she did. She used a bigger tile (8x8) than I could find (6x6) so my quote looks like a lot on the tile.
"The most beautiful things in life can't be seen or touched, they must be felt with the heart."

This card was kind of an experiment but I think it turned out great. I wrapped cardboard in batting, then cut out the vest and hat out of fabric. I glued on buttons for the eyes, nose, and mouth. This is too bulky to mail as a general Christmas card but it sure was fun to make.

Yesterday my sister Sheri called to let me know her package for my Twilight swap had arrived. I had made a bookmark and put it in there for the swap and she had given it to my niece, my nephew said it wasn't fair that I hadn't made him one so I made him and my other nephew book marks today. The butterfly one is for todays challenge. what a coincidence that book mark was the word of the day.
I know I take bad pictures and I really apologize. I just don't know how to take them better. the tail of the butterfly is a light purple and one of the eyes on the skull is glittered in red to look like a ruby.

these 3x3 note cards were kind of an experiment. I had never used paper with a colored core so I used my cuttle bug and the floral corners folders. Then I used sand paper to show the design. I think they turned out great! I hope the person I made them for thinks so too.
