Beautiful Pendants for Beautiful Friends!

Its been a while since I have posted last, Thank you all for your wonderful comments, and all the love you have sent in my comments!  I appreciate your prayers and Moms healing has been slow, and three steps forward, two steps back. Mom is coming along fine, and I will be finding a new house in a couple months, All great things!  This summer has been full of traveling and/or helping Mom. I have had a hard time keeping up with my blog, Im back on it now though!
1 more thing to mark off my "Going to Make That Someday"  List!  I have  a couple friends who I owe a handmade gift, and a couple I have been wanting to give a handmade gift. Killing two birds with one stone may be a little inappropriate in this case LOL!

I had so much fun making these and spent a little time with one of my favorite people, Because My Cricut is fried I have only had it a year, so I will be on the phone with PC Monday morning, Not happy about this!  First I cut my Shrinky Dink with the Cricut and Doodle Charms cartridge, Stamped many different Prima Stamps, some on one side and some on the other, I liked them best stamped on the rough side, After they were baked I used a big block stamp to press them flat quickly, then after they cooled I used my Alcohol ink on the back side, after it dried I added the pearly dobbers to add a little bling and texture.  Made a charm with a couple, however, I plan to trade it out for brass colored and beads before they reach their new homes.
