Happy Anniversary

 Hello friends.  Today I have an anniversary card to share.  I made this for my sister and brother-in-law's anniversary yesterday

ETA:  My card was chosen as one of the Watercooler Rockers at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.


I used a Sizzix Tim Holtz die on the white panel and laid it over MFT Woodgrain Whimsy paper in a pretty blue color.  I stamped the sentiment from SU Many Mates set.  The flowers are fussy cut from the new SU True Love DSP (available Jan. 5th - this paper is so pretty with several sheets of black & white flowers and also lovely patterns).  I colored the flowers with Flirty Flamingo Blends and the leaves with Granny Apple Green Blends.  I glued the flowers together, overlapping them a little, and then mounted them with foam tape.  I really like the light blue and pink together.

I will link this to the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes

I hope you have a wonderful day.

Birthday Wishes for the Color Hues

 Hello Friends.  I hope everyone had a nice Christmas.  I have a birthday card for a friend that I am sharing today.

I had this pretty flower and leaves form Altenew's Beautiful Day already colored with markers.  I embossed a white panel with SU Dainty Diamonds EF.  The turquoise banner was already embossed and die cut, as was the sentiment oval (SU Fancy Phrases), so all I had to do was cut the card base, the embossed panel and then put it all together.  I added a turquoise rhinestone to the flower center and scattered some small rhinestones around.

Last Christmas Cards

 Hello friends.  I am sharing my last Christmas cards for 2020.  These are made for my 3 great-granddaughters.  They are made with the gift card pocket on the inside front panel but I will be putting money in them. 😀

These cute little elves are from CC Designs.  I had to copy and resize them on my printer to fit the die-cut mats, which are cut with my Cricut, then fussy cut the elves out.   The elves are mounted with foam tape.  The candy stripe paper is by The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby).  The corners of the inside white mat are punched with a SU punch.

I will link to Christmas Kickstart Challenge #45 - If It's Christmassy, Link it Up!.


Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful day and I wish you all a very happy and MERRY CHRISTMAS, and a safe and healthy NEW YEAR.

Another Christmas Card

 Hello friends.  I have another Christmas card to share today.

ETA:  Yea, my card was one of the Top Cups at Sunday Stamps.

The white panel is embossed with SU Brick & Mortar EF and matted with a thin black mat.  The blue ornament is cut with a retired SU die from glittery paper.  I sponged dark blue ink about the edge, and added an ornament topper and a bow cut from gold foil paper.  The Penny Black Nativity ornament is also cut from gold foil.  The sentiment is from a Hero Arts stamp set.  The ornament and sentiment are mounted with foam tape.

I used the sketch from Sunday Stamps.

I will also link to Festive Friday Challenge Christmas Challenge.

                       I used stars (top of nativity), ornaments, and peace on earth (Jesus gives us peace).

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

Happy Birthday

 Hello friends.  Today I have a birthday card to share that I made for our Youth Pastor at church.  His  birthday is today. I gave it to him at church yesterday and he loved it.

 I used Deer Silhouettes stamp set from Divinity Designs and stamped the images in Mossy Meadow (trees and grass) and also black (deer and bottom layer of grass).  The image is die cut with a SU Stitched Rectangle die and matted with Early Espresso card.  The sentiment is from the same set and stamped on an MFT Banner die.  The woodgrain DSP is from SU Poinsettia Petals DSP.  

I really like the finished card and will have to make more of these manly cards.

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