Praying for you

I don't make these cards too often, but since I had out my Thoughts and Prayers set I made a few to tide me over :) I even sent one off to my mom, I'm always thinking about her.

Made use of some buttons, I don't do that too often. But, lately they've been calling out to me. And the eyelet border punch was a perfect touch for this card. Softly sponged the edges and tied some ribbon.

Set: Thoughts and Prayers
Accessories: Porcelain Prints DP, Blue Bayou and Whisper White cardstocks, sponge, eyelet border punch, blue bayou ribbon, white organdy, and buttons

Always be remembered

My wonderful aunt passed away recently. This is the card that I sent off
to my uncle. They are a very dear couple and she will be greatly missed.

I am loving this set, as it's new to me :) Getting lots of use out of it already. Sponged over the tree to give it that spring/summer look. It's been embossed and the sponging goes over it very easily.

Pretty basic card, yet I really love it.

Accessories: Porcelain Prints DP, Wild Wasabi, River Rock and Whisper White cardstock. River Rock ribbon, EP, Oval Punches, paper piercing and brads.

A friend makes it easy

I missed my good friends birthday, so after all this time passed I felt I just wanted to get a card off to her anyway, so here it is:

I love these pinks and greens together, so pretty! I used markers to color the image so that I could use two colors. I embossed the sentiment. Layered the ribbons and used the CuttleBug for the background.

What a blessing

My lovely daughter is 15 today.
Again...where does the time go? She's such a lovely lady.
I'm so very proud of the woman she is becoming.
She is talented, kind, funny, smart, thoughtful, caring...the
list goes on and on.
I am so very proud that she is mine and so very blessed that
God gave her to me.

I've been wanting this set for so long, and I've seen so many wonderful
cards made with it. I raised the flowers to make them stand out and even
added crystal effects to the cap. And I used new colors!!!! How fun!

Also, I took out my trusty brayer to make the background, goodness I love
that tool!!

Thanks for coming by!

Set: Inspired by Nature, Hugs & Wishes
Accessories: Peach Parfait, Pear Pizzazz, Not Quite Navy & Whisper White cardstocks, Old Olive ribbon (really close to the pear), Scallop edge punch, Crystal Effects, brads, brayer.

I've had the need for a couple of sympathy cards lately. This is one of the ones I made. I just love this set. The tree can be used for so many things.

I used my new Smooch Spritz on this card, it's going to take a bit to get used to it. Sometimes it comes out a lot other times a little, I need to figure out the strength in my finger :) I sponged some blue into the sky and green for grass, just to add a little something more.

I pulled out my Copper paper that I haven't used in forever and found some eyelets that matched. I think they go great with the Spritz!

Here we go...again

More fun with my grilling guy!
He really is a lot of fun to color. And I always find
that I need more masculine cards, so I went to town.

I found these brads that I believe I got from GinaK
a while back and never used. I have more product that
seems to hide on me amongst all that wonderful stamping
stuff....and once in a while it surfaces.

King of the Grill

As promised, here is another of my fun guy.
He's out playing on the grill and a big ol' dragon fly
is trying to steal his steak!

I used the crimper to add some texture to the
background, and it seemed masculine. Almost like
the texture on the grill itself.

Striped are better suited for a man's card then flowers,
huh? But, on the last one, I figured that they were at
least not pink, HA!

Accessories: Treehouse DP, True Thyme, More Mustard, Buckaroo Blue & Whisper White cardstocks, Cranberry Crisp Ribbon, So Saffron Ribbon, Ticket Corner Punch, Button
