Rizzo Makes an Easter Bunny

Rizzobear and Mama made an Easter Bunny today.  Mama had to help because hot glue was involved.  I didn't take any pictures of the assembly.  It's basically just felt, pipe cleaners, pom poms, and poofy balls.

Behold!  The Easter Bunny!

Some Odd Challenge: We're All Mad Here!

Some Odd Girl challenged us with a sketch.  I colored this image and didn't know what to do with it.  I just wanted to color it!  I saw the challenge and figured I would apply it to a card.

Here is our sketch:

Here is the card I made:

The image is Mad Hatter Kody, colored using Copics. The card base is Papertrey's True Black card stock.  The Pattern Paper is BoBunny.

The sentiment is from Kraftin' Kimmies.

The skulls are from Michael's.  I can't remember the manufacturer and my 150lb dog has be blocked into my desk, so I can't find out.

*gasp*  Do you know how long it's been since I've used STICKLES?  STICKLES ARE BACK!

Thanks for looking!

March SFYTT: She flies with her own wings

Just a quick post to share the card I made for the March SFYTT.  Sorry to keep this short, but it's been a long day and my bed is calling  yelling for me to be in it.

Here is the sketch:

...and here is the card I made.  I flipped the sketch on its side.

The card base is Papertrey Ink's True Black.  The layers are Stampin' Up!'s Island Indigo and Confetti Cream. The inks are Stampin' Up!'s Island Indigo and Calypso Coral.

The sentiment and background Butterflies are from Unity Stamp Co's 'She flies with her own wings' add-on to the Feb KOTM.  The Butterfly embellishment is from Papertrey Ink's Butterfly Dreams set.

Some Odd Bookmarks!

Some Odd Girl stamps recently released their Geeky Mae digi.  I fell in love immediately! I was fortunate enough to win this gem in their blog give-away.  I was so excited to make some bookmarks.  I made two: one for myself, one for my friend Jenni.  

Here is what I made:

The pattern paper is from DCWV's Animal Crackers paper stack.  I intentionally left the center white for it's intended purpose.

I colored using Copics.

Then sentiment is from Unity Stamp Co.

The pattern paper used on this one is from DCWV's Sweets paper stack.

I purposefully did them both the same since Jenni and I will be using them for the same thing.  =o )

Thanks for looking!

Rizzo's Adventures in Play-dohland

Rizzo and I decided to make play-doh.  I thought I would post the recipe online for friends who would be interested in doing the same.  It was fun and the play-doh turned out GREAT!

Start by adding 2 cups of flour.

 Then add 1 cup of salt.

Add 1 Tbsp of Cream of Tartar for elasticity.

...and 2 Tbsp of Canola Oil.

Last, add 2 cups of warm water and stir.

You want to stir it until it's well mixed.

 Set it on the stove and stir constantly over low heat.

It starts off nice and smooth.

It'll start to thicken up and get difficult to stir.  It got a little too hard for Rizzo's little arms, so Daddy stepped in to take over.

It continues to thicken, and takes some real muscle.  Daddy was starting to get tired.

 It's done when the mixture starts to pull away from the edges and clump in the center.  Stir for about 2 minutes more, or until you can stick your finger in the dough and it doesn't stick to you.

Then empty it onto a sheet to cool.

It takes a while.  Rizzo was very patient.

Rizzo checked to see if it was cool...

...and left a hand print, which gave us an idea!

Mommy/Daughter handprints!  The play-doh is cooling nicely and molds well.

When it cools, divide the dough into fourths and roll into balls.  Tear them in half and put food coloring in the center.

Knead the food coloring from the inside out, and there you have it!  Play-doh!

And now the photos of Rizzo and her play-doh.

It squishes nicely.

I came out to find this on the table.  I think Daddy had something to do with it.

He also helped Rizzo build a Smurf village.

Complete with Papa Smurf.
