Wed. was shoe box and here is the card I made.  I inked  an embossing folder on the front side and ran it through the bug.  The sentiment is inked on a folder from StampoinUp.   Colors are Marina Mist and white.

I made this card for a swap.  I can't seem to get away from the Almost Artichoke paper.  Today I pared it with pear and used this great die I borrowed from Sharon.  I used a  doily that I stamped with Versamark for the background.  Isn't this corner punch a nice one?  I never use it because I always get 3 corners right and one that I mess up.  Today I turned the punch over where I could see where  to position the paper and it worked really well. The flower back ground was inked on a clear acrylic block.

I made this card for shoe box Sat.  Colors are one of my favorites together Cherry Cobbler and Almost Artichoke.  The dies are Prim Poppy and Ringed Buckle.  Sharon moved the buckle down closer to the bottom which looked better but I could not move mine because it is so thin, stays where you put it the first time.  This nestie is Detailed Scallops and is a bear to get all those little pieces out.  I ordered a metal shim which I hopes helps.  It's beautiful but tests my patience.

Here is Bobby's birthday card that I must get in the mail today.  I haven't done a masculine card in a long while.  He likes music so I thought he would get a kick out of this card.  Notice the black & brown Bakers Twine?  Sharon and I shared a spool.

Here's another card I made using Denise's bluebonnets  dies.  A couple of years ago when we still  had the RV we took 2 couples to Fredericksburg  and did a wine tasting tour.  That year we had lots of rain and the poppies and bluebonnets were beautiful growing together.  I remembered this and was inspired to make this make this card.  I really like these colors together, Almost Artichoke sand Cherry Cobbler.  The poppy is from Memory Makers.
