Cards and Clips

I haven't posted any of the recent projects I've worked on because I just seem to have to many going on at once!

Recently, I received two birth announcements from friends having little boys. I'd also seen a very cute quilt card idea that I wanted to try, so I thought now would be the perfect time to give it a try!

Here's a close up. I just used a marker to make faux stitches and then clipped a button and tag to the bow.

I turned this sample in for the place cards for our church ladies banquet. It got a unanimous thumbs up from the committee! Last year I made 86...wonder how many I'll have to make this year? Our theme for this years event is hats! This is one of the biggest events that our church hosts each year. Every year improves a little more and gains more interest. It's been a blessing to watch it grow and I can't wait to see how everything comes together this year!

Cassie and Colin went to a friends birthday party this weekend and had a wonderful time. The birthday girl, Evelyn, likes accessories so I decided to make her some yo-yo hair clips.

I have several jars of assorted buttons, but you might be surprised to find out that all but the grapes are scrap booking/card making brads...not buttons! If you look closely, you'll see where I attached the brad. The clip blanks have a hole in either end that you can attach the yo-yo to. You can make them in assorted sizes for endless possibilities!

  1. You are just too smart! Love it all, but especially love the darling card at the top. Sure enjoyed reading the article about Cameron. He's such a great kid, with such a great family. Miss y'all!
