Happy Birthday to my Granddaughter

Today is my beautiful granddaughter's birthday and this is the card I made her.

 I stamped the front of the card with MFT Diagonal Stripes BG in SU Regal Rose ink.  That is one of the colors I used in the Altenew Beautiful Day flower.   I also used Pink Pirouette and Strawberry Slush inks.  The leaves are stamped with Altenew green inks.   I used the matching dies to cut the flower and leaves.  The sentiment is from SU Birthday Blooms and cut with SU Lots of Labels die.  I traced the die on the Regal Rose CS and fussy cut it for the mat.  The sentiment panel and the flower are mounted with foam tape.
Here she is with flowers and candy from her boyfriend.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Birthday to my Great-Granddaughter


I have been sick since 2 days before Christmas and am starting to feel better and wanted to get a few cards done.  We have 6 family birthdays this month.


I made this card for my great-granddaughter who is turning 16.  Her favorite color is burgundy so I used SU Bravo Burgundy CS and ink.  I stamped 2 background stamps and then die cut the balloons and all the elements using MFT Blueprints 26 dies.  I sponged the edges of the balloons with Bravo Burgandy ink and added the die cut 16.  The white panel is embossed with SU Decorative Dots EF.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Bithday

Hello friends and Happy 2017.  After taking the month of December off, Seize the Birthday  is starting the New Year off with an "Anything Goes" challenge.


ETA:  Yea, my card is one of the winners at Mojo Monday.
I used the sketch from this week's Mojo Monday challenge.

The papers are from an older SU DSP Love Letter.  I matted them with black and the scallop mat is cut with an MFT Blueprints 20 die.  The sentiment is Verve's Happy Birthday Plain Jane, cut with MFT Stitched circle die and Circle Stax die. The flower is from Verve's One Person (no longer available).  I sponged the flower with SU Riding Hood Red ink, layered it with foam tape and added yellow rhinestones to the center.  The ivory panel is embossed with SU Decorative Dots EF.

Don't forget to check out all the fabulous cards by the Designers over at Seize the Birthday.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Christmas Blessings

Hello Friends, today I am sharing a Christmas card I made using a cut on my Silhouette.  It has both the outline and the shadow elements.  I added a rhinestone to the center of the star.
The sentiment is from Verve's Weary World.  Love this new set, especially the mixed fonts in this greeting.  The DSP is a freebie from Verve included in my order.  The banner is cut with a die from MFT Blueprints 13 and the scalloped mat is cut with an MFT Blueprints 20 die.  I love how this card turned out and have made several of them since this first one.

ETA:  I am linking this up at Merry Monday Christmas Challenge as it is my favorite card I made this year.  I love that it shows the true meaning of Christmas.


I am linking my card up at Tuesday Morning Sketches as it is their "Annual Anything Goes" challenge.

MHK Designs December Release - The Write Stuff

Happy Saturday morning friends.  Sadly, today is the last day of MHK Designs December Release and my last day as a guest designer.  "The Write Stuff" is the design we are using today.  I love all the vintage style images.

The Write Stuff Digital Stamp Set

I printed out two of the telephones, no coloring needed, and linked them together with Baker's twine.  I think the sentiment is perfect with these images.  This was a quick and fun card to do and a great way to send a sweet hello to someone special.
