Doll Dress

 I finished one of my daughters Christmas presents! I made her a dress from this simplicity pattern from Joann; I picked it up when they had all the patterns for $1.00.  I'm really happy with the way it turned out!  I  wasn't sure if I would finish the dress, I haven't made anything with sleeves since I was in home ec class many years ago...  Of course I think I picked the hardest dress in this pattern, I was ready to leave the inset out at the neck.  I left the ribbon off at the waist, I was happy with how the waist looked without the ribbon and decided to leave it alone.  It's not perfect and thankfully it's for a doll but I think my daughter will  be really happy with the dress.  Have a great day!

Baby Card

My boys needed a baby card for one of their youth leaders surprise shower.  The baby surprised everyone and decided to come before the shower so his leader wasn't there for the night.  This is simple card using my cricut and the wrap it up cartridge.  I used an old stamp set for the sailboat on the onesie.  I used the challenge at 365 Cards , divide and conquer (Divide your card into 4 parts - and each part should have a different background pattern)  This challenge is from a couple of weeks ago but I haven't had a chance to post until now.  Have a great day!

Happy Camper Crunch

My daughter was star of the week at school and got to bring in a treat.  She wanted to make happy camper crunch.(golden grahams, mini marshmallows, and chocolate chips.)  We made little treat bags for the crunch and used the cricut for the tent and sign.  The tent is from campin' critters and the sign is from walk in my garden.  I printed happy camper crunch on the computer.  They turned out really cute and I will be making more for a camping theme event I will be part of in January. (which is actually why I showed her this great treat in the first place.)
