  Hey Everyone, This card was made for the Artisan Design Team Board

So... Yes I applied but, not this year I guess! =( 
Although, I was invited to create a card for the display board at the Tampa OnStage Event. =)
My first Convention Event I've been to and it sure was fun!
I've been a Hobby Demonstrator for 9 years now and want to turn it into a Business. 
SO if you are interested in hosting a party, becoming a Demo yourself or just want some ideas, LET ME KNOW! You can comment here or email me @ maryjsmallwood@gmail.com

OK onto my card

Ok this was the first one and I messed up the inside so I started again. I guess i didn't take many pictures!
No close ups nor of the inside.( I just stamped the tree on the inside in Crumb Cake Ink).

This stamp set is in the Holiday Catalog which is retiring January 4, 2016

Zoo Babies

Good Morning! Yay it's Friday!!

Ok, today I have another cased card. Coming from Teneale Williams in Australia,( who makes AWESOME stuff!)  It's So cute and my 4 year old wanted one, so I set out to make it.We were off to a good start all the way through until I needed the "4" because that's how old he turned!  But alas I had to use the "3" because my baby lost the "4"! I looked for days and I had to give up or this card would not get finished! So here we are with a "3" instead. He still loves the card. Ok, enough rambling! =)  You can take a look at Teneale's card HERE.( You will have to scroll down the page).

I didn't have exactly the same stamps and such so I changed it a bit. And I used Basic Gray cardstock instead of Smoky Slate.

Here's my card

 For the hat I had to cut my own triangle and I used the Ice Cream Cone from Sprinkles of Life stamp set to get the lines. The sequin is Pistachio Pudding from the retired In Color 2013-2015 Sequins, I tied a thread through it from the Smoky Slate Thick Baker's Twine that I pulled apart.

Here's the inside.
 The "dirt" stamp comes from the No Bones about It stamp set. I pierced two holes on the Rhino to tie the bow

And there ya have it. Have a wonderful day!
Thanks for stopping by!
