We are cruising starting tomorrow. I'll be back the first week in April.

I am finally caught up with the VA cards and have some as backup if there are early April birthdays. Now I can relax and enjoy the cruise. Here's a card I did for the March birthdays. Navy & celery. I rounded all the corners, don't know why I don't do that more often.

Special friends birthday card

Here's a birthday card I made for a special friend. I wanted something springy. I think I achieved that! I colored some white flowers with certainly celery. That worked well. I also played with my new toys. The colors are certainly celery, peach parfait & white. This card design was one that we made in shoebox. The white portion of the card was attached to a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece of card stock. We used Vellum on the one we made in shoebox. It's fun and one I am going to try for one of my swaps.

Here's another card I made for one of the VA birthdays. It is a stamp that I will never get tired of. I really like the crumb cake and red together. The embellishments called Candi. They come in lots of colors. My pack is tan, sorta rusty & pearl. I used a white pen to "paint" the sails.

Here's a simple card I made for the VA guys. I thoght this paper looked masculine and it was double sided so it was easy! I need to get my March birthday cards done & make some early birthday cards for the VA since we will be gone the first of the month. The colors are crumb cake & baja breeze. The birthday is in a StampinUp set called bring on the cake, a set I use a lot.

Best Get Well Card Ever

Here is a card I saw on a blog. This is by far the best get well card ever. I sent it to Celia when she was under the weather and also used it for my swap card for one of my swaps. It came from stampingaddict.blogspot. Her measurement etc. are on her blog. I just happened upon it. My card front is different than hers but the inside is the same. Great card ladies!

Here's one of the "spare" cards I made. I am trying to post these ahead of time. I have done that before but it has been a long time. Anyway, this is a card for the VA. The stars on the left are stamped and the one on the right is punched. I like the look.

Here's my swap card. I saw a card I liked using black, crumb cake and rose red. Well, I did not like this result, so I changed the crumb cake to vanilla. Did not much care for that either. I decided to bling it up and now I like both versions.
