Golf Cart Box Card

We just moved and our new house is on a golf course so I had to make this card for my hubby for his birthday.  It is from SVG Cuts the Fathers Day Box Cards.  For the record he loved it!!  Although after giving it to him and taking the photos I noticed I forgot something, can you see what it is?

So what is missing is the brads for the center of the wheels...

For my states I chose Vermont since I lived there for 17 years and loved it there, and I chose Utah because that is where I live now.

For the Vermont project I I made a tag and a small card.  They were stamped with the new 50 States and 50 States add on stamp sets from Jaded Blossom.

For Utah I made a shaped card and layered it up with foam tape.

Precious Baby Gift Tote

We just had another new grand baby born last week and she is just sweet and beautiful!  So babies are on my mind!!  I made this little gift tote from the Beach Tote Bag Holder from SVG Cutting Files, you can get it here.   For the sweet little image I used the Pea Pod cut file you can get it here.   It will a hold a small gift or a gift card perfectly.

I thought I would share a few more photos from my trip to Peru.  I hope you don't mind.

We visited a village about 200 miles into the Amazon.  This little girl was so shy and sweet, she let me hold her little sloth...I now want a sloth!!  It snuggled in and was so soft, I loved it!

Fishing for Piranha on the Amazon River.  I caught the most on our boat, 5.  I also caught the largest one on the boat, although we didn't get a photo of that one.  We took them back to our lodge and they cooked them up for us for lunch.  I didn't eat any I don't like fish but my hubby said it was good.

This little guy is a Tapir.  He wandered in from the forest looking for something to eat and as you can see was very friendly!

We walked on top of the canopy about 120 feet in the air, it was amazing!

We went to a small island that is a reserve for animals and as soon as we got off the boat we were swarmed by animals looking for something to eat.

So life has been crazy busy lately so please forgive me for not posting more!  First we moved the end of April and our new home was not done being built so we were homeless for just over 3 weeks, everything in the garage in boxes.  Finally moved in and then left for Peru for 2 weeks.  Peru was incredible!!  I was so amazed by it all.  I will be sharing some more photos later.  So now I am home and still trying to recover from our trip and finish getting settled in the new house.  I can't believe it is already July!!
