Here's another card I made using left overs, I had the circle cut out and had this scrap of embossed crackle background stamp. I used silver embossing powder. This stamp is a 2000 stamp made by Copper Leaf Creations in New Mexico. I am not even sure they are still in business. Gosh it just occurred to me that I have been stamping for 14 yrs. or so.

Here's a VA birthday card that I made. I sure did string this out this month. Normally I get them all done as soon as I get the list. I made some extras as we will be out for awhile.

This is the last of this plaid paper. I have had it forever. Just looks masculine to me. Pretty simple card.

Here's a card I made for the sunshine committee @ the Point. I need to get some more made & have a lot of March birthday cards to get done too. Just not very motivated right now. I have always liked black and yellow together. This is a StampinUp 2 step stamp. I am not a big fan of 2 step stamping but I think this turned out OK.

I have been working on my Feb. VA birthday cards. This one was made using leftovers. I put them all in a box and am trying to use them up. There's die cuts, stamped pieces, one of a kind paper etc. It's a challenge but I have been enjoying trying to use them up. This image was stamped with a multi color stamp pad then I embossed the whole image. I like the way it turned out.

Here's a card I made for the VA birthdays. I am sorry that the stamped image does not show up too much. It's a nice card close up. It is soft suede, vanilla and not quite navy. The hot air baloon that you can barely see is a Hero stamp.

I made a set of pastel note cards for the gift shop. Here's one. They are very simple. I do hope they sell. I made 6 cards and put them in a little box. I think they look pretty good.

Another Valentine. This time pink & black. I love this little heart stamp by Magenta.

Here's another Valentine that I made for the gift shop. I used white ink & a script stamp to stamp on the hearts. I did it on the pink hearts too but that is a little hard to see. I made the vellum envelope. I liked the way this turned out.

Here's one of the Valentines I made for the gift shop. Pretty easy using the Spellbinders stacked hearts. I was inspired from this card to set my Valentines table in red, white & black.

swap card


Here's a swap I did I think in Dec. I am sure I have not posted it. I used a 51/2 x 41/4 piece of olive card stock, I used a floral DSP on that then on the left hand side I used pink (7x2/1/2 and attached it to the back of the base. The Birthday Wishes is mounted on a piece of olive cs that is 3 1/2 x 2 1/2. I really like the
Delicate Doilies stamp set THANK YOU Celia!! I am not sure where I got this design from someone on the net. Raise the pink flap and you have the saying. Something different that I will do again.

Here's my swap card for one of my swaps. It's pretty simple but since my mojo has taken a hike it was the best I could do and I had to get it in the mail. I have been working on some Valentines for the gift shop @ the point, I'll show some of those this coming week.
