Me & My Big Ideas

I joined a recipe swap (again!). I got the bright idea of making my own embellishments. I remembered thinking I was just so clever for thinking of that all on my own! Well, after 18 cards and six of them with lots and lots of itty, bitty pieces, I hope it's a long time coming before I have any more big bright ideas! Here's the one that almost made me cry!

Is the crockpot too cute or what? Yeah, that's what I thought after I made the first card. I didn't have that same thought after the sixth one! :D
This one wasn't so bad except that my eggs started looking less and less egg-shaped as I went along! LOL

Supplies: Cardstock (lots of it!); Pebbles chalks; EKS aluminum paper (I think that's what it is called!); stamps ?' Palette ink

Oh, I almost forgot. I made this to put a little cash in it for my mom. For those of you who are familiar with my pocketbook fetish, of course I asked if I could borrow it sometime! LOL. It measures about 2"X3" or something like that.

Supplies: Pretty paper - a gift from Deb over at AW&CT; lock - ScrapGoods; rhinestones - ME; gold cording - ?; gold embossing ink and powder - Ranger
