Birthday gift set.........

This afternoon I have my
Magnolia Down Under
card to share with you!!

The girl's over at the challenge blog have made some wonderful projects!! I hope you will be able to stop by and have a look.

This weeks challenge is ...
(I hope you will enter your cards into your challenge this week!)
I have done a card and a handmade cupcake pin cushion.

This card was hard to get photos of because it it what I call a peekaboo card.

I do have lots of photos to show today.

images: #233 Congratulations Tilda, #594 Ballon Background

Both available at Magnolia-Licious. sentiment is from Stampin Up

inks: copic markers and Ranger distressed inks

papers: MME, 3 Bugs in a Rus, We Are Memory Keepers, Melissa Frances

embellies: Paper flowers, ribbons, pearls, butterfly from MS punch, stickles

tools: MS butterfly punch, sewing machine, round spellbinders.

As you can see I have used my Spellbinder round to cut a hole in the front of my card so that the image will show through.
I have used my copic markers to color my image and added stickles to a few spots. If you look close you will see that I have stamped the present twice and have it popped for a 3D look.

Now for my very fun cupcake pin cushion..

I have used wool felt for this project.
I have NO pattern. Just had a thought of how to do this and did it..
I have the meaty part of the cupcake stuffed and glued into a LARGE Prima flower and then put into a paper cupcake holder. The flowers on top I have cut out of wool felt and glued together added a bit of ribbon and some bakers twine to top it off.

I do have a few other very cute pin cushions coming up on my blog soon to show you.
Just need to finish up the cards and packaging that goes with them.

I am not in town right now. I have had a family emergency a few days ago . Not sure when I will be back. I don't have net service where I am unless I take my I-Pad to Mc Donalds. LOL.... So if you have emailed me please give me a bit to get back to you. It could be a few days.
I will try to get around to your blogs as soon as I get back home.
THANK YOU FOR ALL OF THE SUPPORT that you give me and the WONDERFUL heart felt emails and comments you leave me!!
