Wish Big

Gluten Free Cupcakes What would a birthday party be without handmade cards and presents?!  Tracy received some really wonderful things from our beadie buds on Saturday.

She has food allergies similar to mine.  At left are her birthday cupcakes free of gluten, dairy, egg, soy and corn.  We loved them! Yum!

This card came from Kathi H.  She actually constructed the whole scene of the house mice having margaritas at a little straw hut.  Be sure to click on the photo to see more of the details, it’s darling!Card From KathiKathi also brought this cheery pot of micro beaded flowers.  It made a perfect centerpiece for our birthday party picnic table!

Marianne invented a new technique for this pretty card!  Where you can see the pretty white pleated ribbon she first put a strip of O’So Sticky Tape.  Then she folded the ribbon back and forth down the tape to create this wonderful hand pleated ribbon.  Doesn’t it look like those trims you pay big bucks for as the store?!!   Marianne said that using O’So is the trick!  I think we might need a photo tutorial!  Card From Marianne

This little treat jar is decorated with papers, alcohol ink, micro beads and ribbon.  The paper flowers have bubble beads in the middle and lay on a circular background of clear micro beads.  Sweet!

Here’s an elegant card from Michelle.  I really love the composition of this card and those texture folders,…very nice!

Here’s a darling one that Julie made.  The black birds are punched and micro beaded. From Julie

Susie made this one and I have to say it’s my favorite!  (The rainbows get me every time.)  She used one embossing folder on the colored rainbow bits and another for the card front.   Card From Susie

And here’s a darling purse that she made to hold a set of matching cards. 

From Susie

   The cards are held inside by clear sleeves!  Neat!

From Susie Inside  And last but not least this is my birthday ”card” that’s not actually a card but a cube covered with happy birthday papers and tied with a bow.  I needed something quick and easy!  Ü

From Suzanne 

I think Tracy had a GREAT birthday!!  Ü
