I made this I SPY bottle to keep kids amused at Amanda's wedding. I found little trinkets at the dollar store and in the button section at Michaels. The rice was colored with food coloring and rubbing alcohol mixed in a plastic bag. The cover is hot glued on.
When I heard that the boy who will receive this card loves Big Time Rush, I had to look it up! Here is my line drawing of the music group --- the inside of his card has the lyrics to one of their songs changed to fit him.
Our friend Tony is celebrating his birthday on April Fool's Day. Since he is a bit of a senior citizen and glories in his shuffleboard, I made a shuffleboard card for him complete with Altoid "biscuits". (Wikipedia assures me that the thingies they hit are called biscuits)
Unfortunately, he was a bit under the weather and didn't come to our Tuesday dinner party at Sam's, and now I am faced with either figuring out how to mail a card with altoids glued to it, or make a new card.
The new card is on the right. I kind of prefer it!
The birdie card is not original at all, I saw it at Nancy Zindorf's blog and had to make one. Hers is prettier ... but I do like mine too.
Here is a direct quote from Donna C but I love the sentiment and can't say it any better than she did ...
