One Last Monday Card

Last but not least I have a card I made for my mother-in-law's friend to give to her granddaughter who is graduating from 8th grade. I love hot air balloons and I really think there can never be enough of them so this theme seemed appropriate for this type of card. I hope she likes it!

Stamps: Balloon digis from Bird's Blog, sentiment I typed on my Mac
Paper: Georgia-Pacific card stock, watercolor paper, scrap
Ink: Ranger Distress Ink in Tea Dye
Misc: Fiskars punch used in design at bottom, Copics

Another Monday Card

Hi again,

This next card is one I made for a friend who hasn't been feeling well lately. I hope this brightens her day just a bit.

Stamps: flower from Inkadinkado
Paper: scrap, Georgia-Pacific card stock, watercolor paper

Monday and Some Cards

Hi everyone!

I've got a few new cards to show you tonight. The first one is one I made for my mother-in-law to give to a friend who is having a baby boy. The image I used is from Broken Box Designs. Isn't that baby carriage adorable?! I just love this designer's whimsical talent! She has some digi freebies available frequently so head on over there either by clicking on the link or click on the link on the right-hand side of this page.

Happy Saturday!

Hi Everyone!

I have 3 cards today. The first one is one I made for a sketch challenge I thought I would try. It's over at CPS and the prize is one of my favorite stamp companies, My Favorite Things. I thought to keep in the mood of the prize, I would use one of my digis by one of the designers for My Favorite Things. Her name is Heather Ellis and I absolutely love her Pure Innocence line. You can get them at her Etsy store. I've never done one of their challenges but I really like how their site is laid out. I look forward to doing more in the future. This is for challenge #213.


Stamps: Girl: Heather Ellis, eggs and sentiment: Studio G
Paper: Basic Grey, Georgia Pacific card stock, scrap, Webster's Pages
Ink: Memento Cocoa, Tuxedo Black and Ranger Archival in black
Misc: Ranger Stickles
