Storybook Bird for BBTB and a shadow box for Max

This week on Bitten by the Bug, the team were asked to use this bird from the Storybook cartridge. I cut him small, at 1 1/2" and perched him on a sissix diecut branch. The scallop layer was also from storybook, embossed with a cuttlebug snowflake folder. The paper is from a stack by Mambi

You remember me telling you about my friend Joan, who I met through this blog, coming with her husband to spend the day with us here in Florida? We talked a lot about our grandchildren, and a few days later she sent me these Fire Service uniform badges for our fireman-mad little 2 year old, Max. I wanted to display them in some way, so I bought a 8 x 8 shadow box frame, and mounted the badges. The firestation was cut at 6" using the My Community cartridge. I used Cricut markers first, then cut it out in white, red and blue, then cut various bits out and pieced them together. I covered the windows and fire truck in glossy accents, and the door is popped open with a foam pad. The number plate on the truck reads 'Max 1'. I found the yellow wellies lurking in a drawer, I think they are Jolees stickers. The lettering is red felt American Craft thickers





When Joan left, I gave her the halloween wreath I had made, to give to her little granddaughter Erin, here is a photo of a very pretty little girl looking delighted with her gift. Thank you for the lovely card you made for me Erin xx


I will be drawing the winners of the blog candy later today folks, so check back to see who will be getting the goodies

  15. What an adorable little girl! I'll bet the wreath is one she'll cherish for years to come. And I'm sure Max will love the shadowbox too! I had no idea he was 'fireman mad'lol. Do you think he'll grow up to be one? What hero's they are. If I should come across some patches here, I'll send them to you for your little Max.

  19. gorgeous card Enfys, I just love that little bird. Maz is going to be so pleased with his framed firestation and badges, great job. Just read your review on the gypsy and has probably confirmed all my thoughts. I too had Design Studio but don't use it (so glad I got it free with the expression machine). Thanks for keeping us informed.
