Lego - Duplo Birthday Card

The kids got invited to a Lego Birthday party and I just had to make a card just for it! I saw THIS ONE on Splitcoast and loved it so much that I had to make it my own.
I have included all the details and measurements below on how I did it!

For the little top bumps on the Lego, I used the Word Window Punch cut in half. I used the Sahara Sand marker for the shading with the White Gel pen for highlights. To line this up evenly I used my SU Grid paper. Each square is 1/4". My top Daffodil Delight piece is 3-1/8" across x 2-1/2" folded in half.

The white insert is 2-1/4" x 2-1/2" and you just stick it on the inside of the top folded yellow piece and tape it closed.

The card base is 5" x 3-1/8" out of Pacific Point folded in half. I used Red sticky tape on the edges to keep it together. The red block on top is 1-1/4" x 3-1/8" with the bumps done the same way as the yellow ones. Stick this right on the front of the blue pouch.

I stamped with the Happiest Birthday Wishes Hostess stamp set in Pacific Point ink, and your card is ready to go together! Just like the Lego's!

For the Lego on the envelope I made it 3-1/8" x 1-1/2". The circles are from the large circle on the Owl Punch. I sponged the edges and added highlights with the gel pen. The name is from the Billboard strip die cut using the Big Shot.

My kids LOVE this card and so did Brett!
Here is Timmy playing with the Legos at the party and the Brett blowing out the Lego candles on the Lego cake! This was such a great theme for a party! This card would be perfect for invitations to your own!

Diabetes Donation Purse Tutorial

I know many of you have seen this purse before and made a donation, thank you so much to all of you!
For those of you that have never seen this, I made this project in honor of my daughter Ashley. My six year old daughter, Ashley, was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes last year. She is an amazing kid and continues to impress us with her great attitude towards this disease, and she is doing great!

ALL proceeds from this project will now go towards JDRF in Ashleys' name through our ski event!
We are having our second annual Downhill for Diabetes ski/snowboard event on Sunday, February 26th 2012! It will be held at Pico Mountain Resort in Vermont.
All donations will go towards this event and will be donated to JDRF(Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation).

The purses are approximately 7" across x 4 1/2" tall x 4" deep. They will easily fit many cards and envelopes inside and would be great to hold swaps!

I thank all of you who make a donation from the bottom of my heart. You are welcome to make a donation to this great cause even if you do not want the tutorial. So many people suffer from this disease and every penny donated gets them that much closer to finding a better way to handle the disease and hopefully find a future cure!
Thank you.

to see more details or to make a donation and get the tutorial!

I would also welcome anyone else who has a blog or website, to post the photo of these purses and a link to raise more money for this great cause.
The more people that see this and are able to donate the better!
If any of your live close enough, we would love to have you join us for the ski event too!
