Well I had to stop by now that I "fixed" my camera and can upload my photos. A couple of weeks ago my daughter and I went for a drive. Our goal was to get a new kitty. We live out in the country so I figured this time of year I could just drive up and down some country roads and I would find a sign that said "Free Kittens". And that is exactly what happened, and when we knocked at the door it happened to be one of my daughters friends who lived there! Oh my gosh they had two litters of babies and all so cute. I was thrilled to find a long-haired fluffy kitten, as those are my favorite kind (NO offense to Andrew ... he is my short-haired... we love him like crazy) So we have Stevie. She is not named after Stevie Nicks from Fleetwood Mac although I would like to think so. My daughter chose that name, and we figured that would work for a boy or a girl, and we are not sure which she is. She is a little timid, but such a cutie!
Now onto a project! Several months ago in magazine (I think it was Card Makers February Issue) I saw a project for a "wallet" card. I thought this would be a great project for my daughter to make for Father's Day. She is 11, so I made one along side her, so that I could help her. I had mentioned to my friend Jan that we were thinking of doing this when she visited. So wouldn't you know she went home and sent us several wonderful sheets of embossed paper that was just perfect for this project.
Here are the end results.
The outside of the wallet:The inside of her wallet, with her picture. These are neat because they actually function like a real wallet so you have a space for a photo and an opening for money. What a fun gift!
Cassie's (she calls her dad "pops" and the one on the left I made) I know our stitching leaves something to be desired.
I was trying to find a link on Card Makers site, but there is some problem with their site right now. So if anyone has this link I would love if you posted it in the comments here!
Have a great day,
