Paper Garden Birthday Bash Projects!

Ok, I'm such a procrastinator. I got all four projects done for the birthday blog bash over on Paper Garden's blog, but I fogot to post them until now! Doh!

Week 1 was to make a humorous card. I decided the sentiment from Unity's Hey Chick! with Unity's Petey the peacock (Jan 09 KOTM) would be enough to inspire giggles. Imagine a boy peacock telling you to shake your tail feathers!! Hopefully you think so too!
{Bazzill CS, Michaels' rhinestones, Versamark and Ranger ink, Prismacolor pencils, misc ribbon, Mark Ent. embossing powder, Prima center kisses, Ranger Ink stickles, Hero Arts pearls}

Week 2 was to make a project with flowers - stamped, printed paper, or any other medium - on your card. So, I chose Lisa Hetrick's set from Unity - Love in the Air. Bazzil CS; American Crafts ribbon, SU! markers; Prima flowers, Michael's rhinestones, Versamark ink, Ranger embossing powder, Bazzill brads, Ranger stickles.

Week 3 was to make a thank-you project. This card uses Stampin' Up!'s Furnished with Love light, and Unity's Thanks (March 09 KOTM). SU! paper, Versamark, Stampendous embossing powder, Limelight's giant ric-rac ribbon, K&Co stitches transfer, SU! buttons and twine.

Week 4 was to make a project with a background stamp. I chose this cutie using Unity's Hey Chick! set. They just make me happy! The background stamp Stampin' Up!'s chicken wire. {Bazzill CS, SEI PP, Ranger Ink (spiced marmalade & black soot), Prima flowers, Making Memories flower brad, Prismacolor pencils, Ranger stickles, Michael's rhinestones, Spellbinders Nesties}

So, there you have it. The Paper Garden is a great place to hang out. Go see them and wish them a happy birthday!

Ta for now, ~ky
