Two posts in one day!! HOLD your seats!!
Isn't he CUTE???
I made him for my DD's friends BDay gift - for some reason - they love the platypus.
I googled and found directions by beavisfreak at craftster.org.
I'm gonna have to make some more of these crochet animals - they are TOO cute - actually - I just started a bird
thanks for looking. Andrea
Aren't these colors great? I needed to make a sympathy card and decided to use Thinking of You vs the more traditional with sympathy verse.
This first card is all SU!. I used the flower vine from Vintage Vogue with versamark on Barely Banana to make my own subtle patterned paper. I put that on an almost artichoke card. The butterfly is a SU! bigz die cut with certainly celery. I cut 2 and pop dotted the second one for some depth. Again I used versamark to and the vine stamp. The swirly trail of the butterfly is the large (and small) swirl from Priceless (Yes Sharon - if you're here - I DID use that set). The inside of the card is layered with Barely Banana so I can write my letter.

So I took a bunch of the cereal boxes and the SU! scalloped Sizzix die. And made a bunch of mini pages - a bunch of stuff later from my massive stash - and I had a mini album - well sort a - I decided to make it into a Birthday Card for my friend Lori.
Course - those of you that know me IRL know that I often decide close to a "deadline" to make something - so in typical fashion I decided to make a coordinating box a half hour before I left the house - its "pretty" but a smidge too small LOL
Although the box has some "issues" since its the first I made of this type - I really really really like the way it looks - I love the thick ribbon (which when I first got it I felt was too thick to work with) and the clear sticker is great on the cover. I will be doing this again.
The first two pages - with my personal note in the pocket on the right page.
Another - pocket - so I "hid" another saying
The ending... I had fun heat embossing with the SU! Vintage Vogue set and some random stash friends stuff.
