If you notice, I made a mistake on the sketch. I had looked at the pattern early in the week, and when I made the card last night I did it from memory. My memory must be slipping, I put the 2 small squares on the left.

I love to create items and even more, I love to share them. Knowing that some one gets inspiration from me or can use one of my templates to make a fabulous project makes me very happy. :) Imitation is the best form of flattery.
On the other hand, knowing that someone has made an exact copy of my item and sold it, makes me very sad. With that being said you can understand why I have been a little guarded with the template for the watermelon project this week. After much thought, I decided that I made that to share and I want anyone who wants it to use it as they wish.
Someone with a little more computer knowledge than me will be by shortly to fix the template on the original post(I hope!)
With that being said,things will continue on as before.....
I wish this card had photographed a little better, there is glitter on the butterfly.
Supplies CTMH-Vineyard berry CS, Dutchblue TCS, Sweetleaf TCS, Vineyard berry ink, May word puzzle stamp set, Say it with Style stamp set, sanding kit, stylus, dutch blue rhinestones, prisma glitter.

When the card holder is folded together it fits right inside the jacket, snug enough that you can carry it by the handle.

One thing I did work on was this baby gift. I found this cute little onesie and bib in the dollar section at Target. Can you believe it, one dollar?? I just knew they would go great with the lion stamp from Life is a Jungle.
I know I promised no more lions, but this one just had to be shown.
Supplies-from CTMH-Goldrush CS, Goldrush ink, black ink, sunflower marker, Autumn terracotta marker, black marker, red chalk, Autumn terracotta ribbon, Autumn terracotta brads, pattern paper from Enchanted, chipboard scalloped circles
Other-tin from Papertrey Ink
Lastly, I wanted you to see my golf bag planter. I have this thing for planting flowers in unusual things. I also have a set of pots and pans planted, a fertilize spreader and an old coke crate. I tried to convince Charlie to buy an old oven in a garage sale one time so I could plant in that, but he said "I am not having an old stove in the back yard". I told him it would look really good with all the frying pans, but he didn't go for it.

You may want to use the heat gun to dry the ink of the stamped image well. This is not necessary, but it help with bleeding when using black ink. Also try a grey ink or Staz-ON ink.
1st-Fill your waterbrush with water, and squeeze just a little to get the bristles wet.
Here is how I use the ink-with the lid closed, squeeze a few times.
This should get some ink on the inside of the lid. If it doesn't, you may need to add some re-inker to you pad.
