Smiles and Trumpets

Hello fellow bloggers! I know it's been a little whilee since I last posted but school and cross country is making me extremely busy.. sigh oh well. It's all good for me, right? Or so people tell me. :)

Last Saturday, September 15th was by brother's birthday. Yayyy. So I made two cards for him.
Here they are:

This is the front view of the first card. I think it's sooo adorable and cute. Plus, it was pretty easy to make! As long as you have cardstock, scrapbook paper, a hole puncher, glue, and scissors, you're set to go. And also it's pretty customizable with the hair. :)
 This is the card opened up through the back. It's full on giving you that :D smile!
And it says: "You're never fully dressed..." 
"Without a SMILE! (:"
Here's the inside, continuing on with the little phrase. I had my mom and dad and sister sign this card as well. And it's still smiling happily from the inside too :D

 This is the second card I created. Originally, the orange paper I used was just a plain strip, but since I decided it was too boring, I just added little black dots to spruce it up a bit.

I drew the trumpet a little bit cartoon-y styled and just colored it in with colored pencils. The white scalloped edge I did by using these lovely craft scissors. I liked the turnout of the whole thing!

In addition to the two cards I also made a quilled letter "G" for him because that's the first letter of his name. I'll put that into another post later.

For now, that's it. So keep crafting!

DIY: Wire Wrapped Wrose Wring

Hey theree bloggers :) Hahaa did you like that alliteration in the title? I know you did.

Anyways, I'm here to show you guys the new accessory that I made for myself. I do love hand-made jewelry. It just adds a little touch of personality to it. It was so simple to do and it doesn't really matter what gauge wire you use. Thanks to that, since I only have 26 gauge, and usually the nicer rings end up using wire around 18 gauge. I think the ring is super cute and fun. And the silver makes it pretty cool. I lovee it <3

So here it is:

Excuse my long nails... heh.

How very artsy. I love the contrast of the metal and the rock. And also the colors. Cool.

But don't you guys think this is cute? Because I do! And I love how easy it was to make. I didn't even really have to use pliers or tweezers.

Enjoy crafters,
