She's Back

I am back and have lots to finally share. I have been busy around the house the last couple of months. Since I last posted I decided to have an auction to declutter the garage since it was just to massive to do a simple garage sale. It was lots of fun, we had a wonderful turnout despite the weather looking so iffy. It rained all morning and just before it was to begin thankfully stopped. It turned out to be a beautiful day. Kathy and her DH flew in to see the spectacle so I enjoyed a super good weekend with them. My camera decided to die or I would have pictures to share..... which brings me to the other reason I have not posted in so long. My new camera has too many buttons on it! I have tried and tried to get clear pictures, clicking everything even resorting to reading the manual (who reads them!) and still get blurry pictures. I think I may have a bad cam.....
Today's share is all about my brother.....

My brother got married and asked me to make a card box he had purchased into a 3-D box. This turned out to be a huge challenge, after several burnt fingers his box was made. I really think a blank slate to work with would have been much easier but as you can see I pulled it off. I also made several dessert trays. They look yummy right?
His card rather simple but elegant went together quickly using Cuttlebug folder, scallop circle nestability, and Lasting Impression birds and rub-ons. I cut out and attached wording to acetate before attaching to card front. Glitter was added to wings for a little extra bling. I apologize for scan it was taken with my new camera.
I promise to come back tomorrow to share more. I still have remodeled house pictures to share and my mojo for making cards has returned!
Have a super evening/day. Thanks for stopping in.
