Cards For Van's Trip to NYC

My friends son will be going to NYC with the University of Arkansas Children's Choir which he has been a part of for over 3 years

As a fund raiser she is going to make individualized specialty cards and sell them. I got to help out with the project yesterday and here are a couple that I worked on.

Winter Snowman

I did two of these, this one and another with blue watercolor pencils (I liked the green better)

Bridal Shower Invitation

This is one of 11 bridal shower invitations we made together. This is a 7 inch card that opens up to the individualized shower instructions....and Wow! they turned out FANTASTIC!

Let Them Eat Cake!

I have many "hobbies" one is cake decorating. I have made hundreds of cakes over the years but here are some of and my absolute favorite. BTW they were all very tasty!
Wedding cake enough for 300! This was an all lemon with lemon filling cake for my Son & his beautiful bride.
Strawberry (pink for a girl) baby shower cake.
This wedding had a Shakespeare theme. Each layer was about 8 inches thick. I did a gold glitter glaze all over the top. It weighed about 30 lbs!
One of the court reporters requested something fun for her Sunday School class.
My First Tux Cake! All eatable!
Here is a volcano cake I did for a special little Red's b-day
I would love to take all the credit for this AWESOME "Death Star" cake but the truth is I spent hours trying to come up with an original idea...then  Jimmy came up with this and very carefully created the death star. I then brushed the whole thing with silver dust to give the look of deep space. Honestly this is my favorite!

One of my 13...

The other day I did one of those dreaded FWDs: It asked me to pick a number, I picked 13. Then it asked me to name a person of the "same sex", I  wrote down - Paula. So, as a result I life is about to get better, (ok, good new's) I am to have 13 best friends in my life and that "Paula" will be one of them (duh...I already knew that). Here is a pic from last year.
