June Card Swap, Birthday & Father's Day gifts, and other Crafts!

Our June card swap was a Father's Day card, of course. Here it is...

I used Night of Navy textured card stock, Night of Navy ink, Whisper White card stock, linen twine, spiral punch, and Sweet Shoppe Lower Case *I think.*

I made this card for my Mom's 50th surprise birthday party I threw for her tonight!

I found this small (empty) metal paint can at Menard's and decided to make something out of it.  I typed out stats and info on Alzheimer's Disease and made this into a donation can.

I used this on the donation can.

This also.

I made a seam with buttons on the back of the donation can.

This is on top of the donation can.

There was a farmer selling fresh strawberries in Jasper last month when I went for my Stampin' Up! upline meeting and my strawberries came in this cute basket that I weaved DSP through. :)

I love my basket! :)

I saw a similar project on my upline's, Tiffany Bauer, Crafty Picks last week. This one is for my dad for Father's Day and has a picture of me and him from my wedding.

The 2 1/2" circle punch makes the perfect sized circle to put on the lid for a note!

This one is what I gave my mom at her surprise party with a picture of me and her when I was 4 years old.

Note to my mom. :)

This one is for my hubby for Father's Day from our furbabies. :) It has my favorite picture from our first family pictures in it. This will go on our new entertainment center when he finishes building it!

The note from our babies. :)

My first attempt at making button rings!

Let me know if you would like any! :)

Well it's been a long day with an early, long trip to Jasper and throwing my mom's surprise birthday's time for bed. Good night blog world! <3
