Here are the American Girl Doll shoes that Ashley and I made today.
The soles are sticky-back foam and we used SU ribbon and brads to make the decorations on them. They came out so cute!
A girl has to have options with shoes, right?!

Here are the ornaments that the kids and I made for the teachers and staff at the school this year.
We got plastic empty ornaments, stuffed them with cotton balls, then put felt cheeks and noses on them. The earmuffs are pipe cleaners and pom-poms and the eyes and mouth are permanent marker. They came out so cute!
We put them in little plastic paint buckets with cotton balls on the bottom.
Here is our army of snowmen ornaments!

My watercolor painting was selected to be featured in the 2013 Cheap Joe's art store reference catalog!! This is the huge catalog that they send out to every customer and is the main catalog for the entire year! The painting that was selected is "A New Beginning". I did this one as a gift for the nurse at my daughter's school who takes care of her diabetes stuff.

I have finally done a card all on my own again!!
A Lynn Pratt original!
Thanks for waiting for me to come back everyone! Here is my Snowman Snow Angel Punch Art Card. It is a 5-1/2" square card.
I used the 1-1/4", 1" and 3/4" circle punches for the snowman body and angel impression. I cut the angel wings out by hand. I punched this out of Very Vanilla card stock. All of the other pieces are Whisper White.
I used the snowflake punch for the arms of the real snowman and the same circle punches..
I used Connie Collins' tutorial to make the paper bow. I did change it a bit and make the second bottom layer and added some pearls. You can find that tutorial here: http://www.stampinconnection.com/video/how-to-make-paper-faux-bows-with-stampin-up-punches-mp4
I used the Owl punch for the snowballs and the Just Believe stamp set for the sentiment.
Hope you like it!

My five year old son Timothy is going to be a football player for Halloween this year. I could not find a costume football helmet anywhere so I decided to make one. I got a knight helmet at the dollar store and with an exacto knife and some duct tape transformed it into this helmet! Tim's team colors are gold and blue and he will wear his flag football jersey.
I will post picture once he puts the entire thing on!

Here is another card from the three card class that I did last week. I love this new butterfly punch!
Here is how I made the butterfly layered. I punched out a full Very Vanilla butterfly and another in Basic Black. I cut out the center of the black one and glued it to the back of the white one, just spaced out a little to show on the outer edges. I really like this effect!
Here is how I made the bow out of a little strip of embossed paper.
I love this punch!
