Accumulation of crafts

So its clearly been a while since I've posted anything so I figured I would just post all the pictures I have of the things I've made since I last posted anything.

Father's Day cards:

The first one was for my dad, who loves old westerns

 The second was for my adopted dad John who loves cars

Then I got a new Cricut cartridge called Sophisticated and I am IN LOVE!!!!! So I made my adopted mom Leanne's birthday card with it

And then because I wanted to make something pretty with my pretty new cartridge I made a little 8x8 canvas

Then I have my three tags from the Tim Holtz tag class at Whole Lotta Scrap last month. We used a Graphic 45 piece of paper and some TH techniques. 

Then the next weekend I went back to WLS to make an altered frame. We used 2x2 pieces of the crowded attic paper stack to cover the frame and then embellished with flowers and die cut grunge board and a stamped journal tag. 

And then I made this crazy HUGE necklace that I saw a picture of at Michael's and knew I had to make it. Who knows if I'll ever find anything to wear it with or if I'll be able to sell it to someone who will be willing to pay how much it cost to make lol! Also, pardon the poor picture.... I didn't have anything to put it on to where you could really see the necklace. 

Then one day my lovely adopted mother Leanne surprised me with a big stash of Copic markers! YAY!!! So I used them on a super cute gingerbread house stamp I'd gotten the weekend before at a stamp convention in Grapevine. I'm really excited about using them for cards now. 

And then of course there are all the headwraps I've cranked out since I last posted, I'm sure there are more but here are some of the ones I really liked.
