Challenge Card

I made this card for the CAS challenge over at Splitcoaststampers. I made the card base out of Georgia Pacific White that I got at Wal-Mart. The images is the bird from SU's Birdsong set. I stamped it in black Stazon on SU's Whisper White cardstock. I colored it in with SU's watercolor pencils. Mounted the image on SU's True Thyme cardstock. Wrapped green ribbon around it and adhered it to the card base. The sentiment is also from Birdsong and stamped in True Thyme classic ink. A very quick and simple card, gotta love that. :)

Birthday Card

Hello again. Phew, is it hot here in Texas, we got up to at least 101 today. Good thing I like the heat, just wish we would get some rain, we need it. I finally got some time to make some cards this week. This first one is a birthday card I made for my Daughters friend, her party is tomorrow. We have had a weekend full of birthdays, my son had one to go to today, but unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of the card I made.
The above card was very quick and simple, just the way I like them. LOL I used pink cs for the base. I stamped the balloon from Stampin Up's Crazy for Cupcakes in black Stazon on water color paper. I than colored them in using SU's water color pencils. Still trying to get the hang of using the aqua painters. I mounted the watercolor paper on to dark blue cardstock and adhered to the card base. I used SU's black marker and made the tiny dots all around the balloons. In the corners I attached some pink metal dots that I got at Joann's. Here is a close up of the tiny dots that I put around the balloons. Thanks for looking.

I made this card for Richard's cousins wedding. Can you believe I didn't have one wedding stamp in my stash. What is up with that. LOL I found this stamp at Hobby Lobby, it is from Stampabilities. I stamped the image in black Stazon and colored it in with Prisma Colored Pencils and baby oil. I than cut it out and mounted it with pop dots on black CS. You can't see it in the picture but I put glitter on the tail lights and the heart. The bride and groom is a brad that I have had for a very long time and finally got the chance to use it. LOL Thanks for reading. :)


This is one of the cards that I made to go in my Mom's tin. I can't remember what the DP is but I know I got it at Michaels. LOL I used Stampin Up's So Many Scallops. I stamped the image and punched it out using the scallop Punch from SU, I than adhered the punched out piece to a piece of scrap paper and turned the image and punched it out again so it looks like a star burst. Hope you like it, thanks for reading. :)

Card Tin

This is the card tin that I made for my mom. I really had a good time making it and filling it for her. The tin is from Michael's. The paper is from Paper Studios and I got it at Hobby Lobby. My Pen Pal Becki cut the letters out using her Cricut. Thanks Becki. :) I am still getting the hang of the camera so bare with me. Richard is going to make me a light box so that the pictures will turn out better.

We are still trying to get back into the swing of things since we got back from Omaha. We are still moving kinda slow. LOL
