Can't wait to finish all of them for my third graders :) They just shipped "My Pink Stamper" stamp sets and I am just dying to get them. We had 24 inches of snow here in Maryland and we have another 3 to 6 inches coming on Tuesday :(....I cannot wait for Spring!! Thanks for the video-it keeps me going in all of this snow!!!!

  34. Super cute card Robyn! Be careful with that wired ribbon and your regular scissors - it will add notches in your scissors and wreck them. Try some wire cutters for the wire part :) Your son is a riot! Have a great day!

  43. Very cute hard! Your DH will love it! Did the Dazzle make a difference with the clear powder? I've been wanting to try it, the Champagne color looks fun... but I'm just not sure if it does much.
    Thanks for another fun video. P.S. You scared me with your fake cut!

  45. Cute card. Thanks for including the "recipe", that's a nice helpful tool. Also, you got me with the fake finger cut. For a second I was like OMG! And what a cutie your little guy is. But I think he looks better in the rocker wig vs. the mullet. Have a good weekend!

  73. Your "ouch" scared the poopy out of me. :) My heart started thumping, and I went into "mommy" mode all worried about your finger. LOL (No, I'm way not old enough to be your mother.)

  74. Hi Robyn~ your blog is terrific!
    I really like the card you created but you did my heart stop for a second when you faked your cut.
    But the ultimate show stealer was your adorable son. Gotta say, the video was super cute.
    Thanks for sharing.

  77. So simple but Oh So Sweet. Your son is something else too. My 5 year old grandson hates girls but his 3 year old brother will tell you in a minute Ava(his friend at day care) is his girlfriend

  93. Love the video Robyn. Just one correction. Real Dial Size will not work with PDDU layers. The clothes would be too big.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Robyn, cute card!

    Just a tip if you hate the wire in the ribbon, you can pull it out. Once you have your length cut from the roll, push each side up to expose the wire and pull!

    I make little girl's hair bows and sometimes the PERFECT ribbon has wire in it, and that is a NO NO for little ones, so I just pull it out and you can always run it through a curling iron if it wrinkles in the process. :o)

    Thanks again for sharing the cute card!!! ;o)
