Mini BoBunny Book

I made this mini BoBunny book for a display at our local scrapbook store.  Handmade flowers and all of the little birds were all colored with Copic markers.

Pet Sympathy

Loss of Pet

My dear friend lost her beloved pet to bone cancer recently.  Theo was a "long legged" Staffordshire Bull Terrier and a real lover boy.  Theo injured his back about a year ago and had to adjust to getting around in a doggie wheel chair.  Recently he developed a limp in his front leg and an x-ray showed "bubble wrap" bone cancer.  Theo was a devoted companion and loved everyone he met.

I drew this picture of Theo and painted him with Copic Markers added some hemp twine and a little heart.

Sweet dreams Theo.

Password Book

Password Book

Although I pride myself on being pretty darned organized, my various passwords and websites were getting out of hand so I put together this little 3x5 1/2" book to hold all those darn passwords that I can't seem to remember and have crossed and re-crossed out on my main list.

The inside holds dividers using black card stock alphabetically labeled and 3x5 index cards that hold the website; user name; password and notes.

The cover is cardboard from a cracker box covered in designer paper.   My little ellie friend is from the Close To My Heart set You're Great and the sentiment is from Moments in Time.  Elephant is colored with Copics.  A few ribbon pieces were added to the book rings.

Now this little book sits on my desk and I no longer have to try and remember so many mind bending passwords.

The base of the card is Stampin' Up Kraft card stock and the image is from the Stampin' Up set Garden Collage (retired).  The flower on the card is the Spellbinders Rose Creations die cut out of Kraft and Blushing Bride pink card stock; the edges are inked with Staz On Cotton White.

Sympathy Card

For this card I used the stamp "You Will Find Refuge" by Our Daily Bread.  I cut the bird and branch out leaving off the berries and drawing lines on the branch.

The bird is colored with Copic markers and I used a larger stylus rolled around on the back side to give him some dimension and used foam dimensionals on the back.

The flowers are circles cut into spirals then rolled on a quilling tool.  The leaves are die cuts from Stampin' Up Little Leaves and Cheery Lyn Designs Fanciful Flourish.

The papers are from the "Home Photo Mats" pack by My Mind's Eye.
