Hershey Airplanes

Hope everyone had a good week!  As promised, here are the cute Hershey Airplanes that I made as goodies for Joe's birthday party.  I saw these on Brenda Quaintana's blog and knew they were perfect to make for his party.  He is definitely into planes and the girls got him a remote one that he is flying all over the place.  He seems to like crashing it into the garage.


These are all I have left.  I was so happy how they turned out and he was so surprised with them.


Here is the front view with the little windows.  Of course, I used his initials for the name of the plane.  I looked all through my stamps trying to decide what to use for the windows and found this tiny little stamp in the Any Occasions set.  For his initials, I ended up using my Just Rite stamps - 50pt. Curtz - using the Harmony Rectangle Stamp set.  I haven't used these in years, but they came in handy for this job!!


I am definitely hooked on these Hershey projects.  You can make so many things with them.  It has started raining here and rain is in the forecast for tomorrow.  Fortunately, the sun is coming out for Sunday.  Enjoy your weekend!

Thanks for stopping by,

Birthday Card

We have been so busy around here lately.  As the saying goes - so much to do and so little time to do it!!  With all the rain and heat we have been having, keeping up with the outside has been somewhat a challenge.  I haven't had much time to blog but have been busy making some things.  Joe;s birthday was Saturday so first on my list was his birthday card.  I saw this card on Stampinpretty's blog and fell in love with it and decided to make it for him.


When the new catalog came out, I fell in love with this Birthday Delivery bundle.  The stamp set reminded me of the old time pictures and with the DSP and dies it was on my list of goodies!  The card is an A2 size and the layers are 3 3/4" x 2 3/4" and 3" x 2 1/2".  All the mats are cut 1/8" larger.


With the DSP and matching dies this card came together really quick.  With the left over scraps, I decorated the inside as well.


Jennifer liked cutting out the little presents - they are so cute.  Later on in the week, I'll show you what goodies I made for his party!   He loved them!  Hope everyone has a great week!
