A Thank You Happy for a Friend

A friend, neighbor and sometimes walking buddy was generous enough to open her pool for our use this summer with MM was here visiting. I had a tote that I had picked up on clearance at WalMart to put her monogram or name on(she's forever more making things and taking them to people). Well I hadn't gotten around to deciding what to do exactly, when this week's Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog theme was Anything But a Card. I was going to make a box envelope for stationery, but I wasn't feeling it. When looking through my Sassy Cheryl images, I came across a pre-colored image I had purchased called Birdhouses on a Hill. Inspiration struck and I knew exactly what I was going to do.

I had a package of the Silhouette Heat Transfer Material for Dark Colored Fabrics. It was just a matter of creating my scalloped oval, adding an oval within it with my image pulled in, and adding Robin's name. Filling in background colors and then doing a print and cut. With this material, you have to pull your cut image off the paper and then lay it on your fabric. Also, it says to cover with a thick material like a dish towel, before pressing(this is REALLY important, ask me how I know), and pressing. Now I just need to add some goodies to the tote before I deliver it. Have I told you how much I love my Silhouette Cameo?

I love the way it turned out,  and wish now I had a ton more of those pre-colored Sassy Cheryl Images for some little girl t-shirts.

What's Been Going on In My World This Past Week

It's time for a second posting of for the Show Me Thursday  Challenge on the Sassy Cheryl Blog. Just for showing a picture or in my case several pictures of what you've got going on in your life, you're entered for a chance to win a free Sassy Cheryls image. Oh and along with that you get a chance to nosey around in other crafters lives.

I've been fairly busy this past week making cards and playing with vinyl. I also spent some valuable time reorganizing my plain card stock.

First off I'll share the cards I've made for OWH.

Now these are the t-shirts I make for 5 of my neighbor's grandchildren.
These shirts are just done with plain gloss heat transfer vinyl.

There's a second Princess shirt. The crown and the ladybug are done in rhinestones. The names are in glitter heat transfer vinyl.

And finally, my card stock shelf after spending some time reorganizing and straightening up.

Can't leave you without posting a couple of pictures of my great niece and nephews. My niece, the mother of Coleman and Lucy Ann, who was keeping her nephew, Corbin along with her two at my house on Saturday. The fathers of the children were helping my DH burn some fields off for some food plots for the deer.
It looks like Lucy Ann thumped Coleman upside his head and made him cry. Not so!

Doesn't she look smug as a bug in this picture?
