Happy 4th of July!

I hope everyone is enjoying a nice Independence Day. I'm so confused about what day it is since yesterday seemed like Saturday. I've got a few things to share with you today. First, here's the plate I made James for his birthday. He's a huge baseball fan, so I used a free svg file from with SCAL and my Cricut.

That's probably all I'll etch this weekend because my vinyl I ordered won't be in until Tuesday and I'm almost out. I'm also almost out of etching cream and Hobby Lobby doesn't have a 40% off coupon this week, so it'll have to wait until next week. I've been using the same bottle of etching cream since January, so it lasts a long time. A 10 ounce bottle is $15-$20, so 40% savings is at least $5, which definitely makes it worth waiting on a coupon.
Next, here's the card I made last night for my quilling swap. It's not what you would normally think of for quilling, but I like it. The sun and the flower in Sophie's hair are quilled and I guess the seagulls count as being quilled.
Last, I have a flower treat box I made for Aunt Pat. Of course I didn't have any treats the right size to put in it, but I still think she'll like it. I got the SCUT file from the Craft Edge forum and cut it using SCAL and my Cricut.
I've got a whiny 3 year old that needs to take a nap, so I'm gonna try to get him to rest a little. Have a wonderful 4th of July!
