Here's a card I made for a friend for his birthday. I haven't used this brick wall embossing folder for awhile. The stamp is just the grass and I used a punch to make it a cattail. The punch is from StampinUp but I am not sure it is in the catalog any longer. I bought the punch for something else but I don't remember what that was. Never used it except to make cattails. I inked the embossing folder with Crumb Cake ink. I used it once using green ink and punched using pastel colors.

Here's a card I made for the point sunshine committee. I really like this embossing folder, so classy.
Here's another get well card I made. Pretty simple but I like it. The top layer is popped up. Adding the ribbon and glitz made a difference.

I am starting to make the get well cards for the point. I made a couple yesterday. This one is using my new favorite die that I used for my Christmas cards. It is Tiffany Frame from Memory Box I think. I bought a Xyron Create A sticker. Didn't quite fit but with a little work I managed to get it into the machine and enough glue to adhere it to the card base. Marina Mist and So Saffron.

Here's the card I made for Benjamin for his birthday. Can''t send one to Alex because he is in
Korea and we haven't gotten his address yet. Guess a Facebook greeting will have to do.

Here's my swap card for this month. I like the tree shadow and the glitz of course. Now I am thinking I should have made it a winter tree scene,maybe I'll give that a try!

Here's a simple thinking of you card that I found in my glossy paper file. I have no idea where it came from but since I need to get some get well cards made, I decided to post it and put it in my pile of cards for the point.

Here is my second shoe box card. It is pretty simple. I have seen several versions of this card. I just wanted to try stamping with a cut out. I think I would have liked it better turned on the side. I said that and Pam made hers like that, I liked it better. I have to make some get well cards for the Sunshine committee so I think I will try that. Colors are Vanilla and Navy.

Here's a birthday card I made for an Auxiliary member. I decided to use a winter theme. I think it turned out well.

I made this card as one of my shoe box cards. I used Blushing Bride & Crumb Cake on another card last
week and really liked the color combo so I decided to use it again. There was no theme for this shoe box. I decided to add the pearls when I got to Pam's. Made a big difference.

Here is the birthday card s made for Ally. I saw it on Pinterest & thought it would be a special card for her 16th birthday.

I sent this card for one of my VA birthdays this month. It was designed by Sharon for one of our shoe box get togethers. I love the plane. My Christmas cards are done yipee!! Now I can get some knitting done. I have several books I want to read & because the Aux. does not meet until Jan. 10, I am a lady of leisure.

Here's another thank you note I made last week. I like this on a lot. This is Stampin Up paper I think.

I found this piece of paper when I was going through my scrap drawer. It was from AMuse. I loved it and had it in several colors but it is all gone. It made a nice thank you card that was simple and quick to make. I really like it better with Cherry Cobbler but I had this red on my desk so I used it. I love cherry cobbler. I just ordered it and Not Quite Navy and thought hummm that would be a nice color combo. Gotta give that a try. I am finishing my Christmas cards today, at least I hope so, a trip to the grocery and a couple of errands, a busy day!

Here's my swap card for Dec. I like the color combo of crumb cake and blushing bride. The lace I bought at Mike's. The butterfly is a Martha punch. The scallop is a die from My Favorite Things. Didn't realize how big it was until I got it but it works on this card I think. I must get a couple of exchange gifts done today and finish up my Christmas cards. That's a lot on my plate. Wish me luck!

I needed to make some cards for the VA birthdays and was short on time so I used some that we made at shoe box and some I had on hand. Here is the only "original" I made. It is nice to use some of the cards that I have been hoarding.
