Mary: my 1st guest blogger!

My friend Mary Allen is my 1st guest blogger. She doesn't have her own blog and I want everyone to see how fabulous she is so I'll post her stuff here and she can be my guest! 

She made this valentines card for her son Nickolaus to take to school using this kit. Mary had NEVER used photo shop. Never messed around with digital scrap booking and had never run actions on photos and look at this!!! I am so impressed and so proud of her!!! If you were here Mary, I'd slap you on the butt and say nice job! Bravo! Well done:)

The really cool thing about this card is that she will cut slits in his hand to hold a real lollipop!
I love it Mary! I know you will inspire others to do this too!

SO STINKIN CUTE MARY!! And seriously, Mary, you need a blog. Posting as a guest here is a great step in the right direction. :) And yes, please post more pics with the lollipop in his hand!

Yay Mary!!! This card looks adorable and definitely wayyy nicer than the generic store-bought ones his friends will be handing out on the big day. And you've inspired me to try photoshop stuff too! (we'll see when it happens...)

YEAH! I am so glad that we will finally get to what Mary is up to! I was always asking mom when she was going to start a blog. I love the valentines- and Nicolas is such a handsome boy!

Thanks for all the really nice comments everyone! I was really frustrated in the beginning. Once I figured it out, I was really into it. I ended up making cake pops to go inside them with my mom. We were a little over the top compared to everyone at school, but we had so much fun making them. Nicolas made mini ones that he sold to Opa. He made a killing =) If I ever get to craft on a routine basis, I’ll start my own blog =) I look at all of your blogs and feel so inspired.

Jennifer – I heard your voice in my head the entire time I was doing this. As you can see, I really do listen to all the things you tell me. I’ve learned so much from you. Thanks for all the tips and inspiration!

Yay Mary! I love them! So cute! I am so inspired by both of you!

We made Valentine's for Sienna - there was no computer involved! Just cardstock, stickers, markers and stamps! We had fun though!

Start your own blog Mary! Jennifer - I love your Valentines too. You guys are SO talented! I'm jealous!
