Masculine Birthday Card

Let's hope my husband doesn't stop by my blog before his birthday! Here is the card I made for his birthday. I used Stampin Up Sahara Sand, Basic Black, and Really Rust paper. I got the twine at the local Home Depot. The sentiment is from the Birthday Whimsy Stampin Up set.

Fabulous 40th Birthday

I used the dress pattern from the Split Coast Stampers forum to make this Fabulous 40th birthday card for one of my very best friends!

The tank top is in Shimmery White SU paper. I used the Happy Birthday from Birthday Whimsy. Don't know if you can see the flower background stamped in Black on Black is from Seeing Spots.

Inside it says "40 Never Looked So Fabulous"

Thanks for looking and HAPPY 40th Birthday Elaine.....You Look Fabulous!!!!!

Birthday Whimsy for May Card Swap

May marked the close of my first year in Card Club. I had so much fun this year! I learned a lot and made some wonderful friends! The theme for May was pick any technique. I decided to use the spritzing technique combined with masking. I wanted to create a card that was more gender neutral so I picked earth tones. I also imposed a challenge to copy any one layout from club. It's like the Wednesday Sketch Challenge on Split Coast Stampers. In the end I'm thrilled with how it came out!

First Communion Card

My Godson is making his first communion today. I spent a lot of time trying to make the perfect card for him. This sweet little boy loves to make cards with me so I know he will appreciate this card more than most 8 year old boys would. I used the retired SU set Inspirationals for the images. The paper is SU also. I used Versa Mark ink to create the watermark images. Thanks for looking!

Easter Cards

Here is the card I sent out for Easter this year. I wanted to make something simple and this was just right. I got to use my new Marvy Scallop and Circle punches for this card. Also I liked that it didn't require any coloring. It gave me a chance to use my Berry Bliss Designer paper too!

Thanks for Looking and HAPPY EASTER!!!!!
