Chili Birthday Wishes

 Not much crafting going on this past week...I was on a clean out mission!  Since we moved into this house, a year ago, I feel the need to clean out.  I guess it is the size...we down sized...considerably.  Anyhow...I did manage a project or two and I want to show you...Take a peek...

I made this card for a girlfriend's daughter.  I knew I had to use this image as soon as I saw it...she has a cranky little Chihuahua.  I even colored this one to look like hers!

Here's the Details:
Image & Sentiment:  Meljen's Designs; I colored with pencils and added Crystal Effects to eyes, nose and peppers.  I also added some Stickles...gotta have glitter!
Extras:  papers are from my scrap basket, ribbons were all from a swap.

Adorable!

I also want to show you my latest machine embroidery project...

I made these two towels as a treat to go with the card.  Brigitte, my girlfriend's daughter likes to bake...cupcakes especially.  I thought these designs were perfect for her and her new apartment kitchen.  I am really liking this embroidery machine...I have a list of projects I want to do.  Best thing, I can color or craft while it is running...just have to change the thread now and then.  Multi tasking at it's craftiest!

Hope your week is off to a wonderful start!  Enjoy!
