Little bit of playtime!

While I was sitting at the table with Josh, doing his homework - no, he was doing his homework, not me!  Start again....Josh was doing his homework at the table so I sat with him and fiddled with some crafty fun!

I love, love, love little quickies like this...just inked up a flower, inked the pearl and added 3 skeleton leaves!

Have been playing along with some of the challenges at Stamping Vacation - and this one is to use a leaf as an embellishment.  It also fits their Sweet challenge - you really gotta check out this site!



And inside.... a little something sweet!  Had to keep dragging these back from Josh!  Good job I had a pack of 4.

Cut this little snowflake out when I was playing with my ecraft - it cut beautifully - no mat, and in this example, no tabs either!

Then we decided he looked like an alien!  So I turned him into a fridge magnet!

Hmmmm - not sure if this still fits with the FIRE AND ICE challenge over at stamping vacation!  I mean, it started as the ice bit - but then it became an alien!

Here he is, with his shopping bag and fork, on the fridge.  Josh had such fun with this - he told me where to glitter this one (and the other two that will go on cards) and also loved the googly eyes.  He arranged it on the fridge!  He THEN went and finished his homework!  I am not a good mother some days!
