Rich Razzleberry again! This is a card I made for a friend. I had this DS on my desk along with a whole bunch of other stuff which made for a great mess. I am such a messy stamper. I am trying to clean up and put away things after each project. That's a battle that I will surely loose! This die is a Spellbinders Label 14 that I have had for some time. I used a StampinUp folder on it and then added the pearls. The butterfly is a StampinUp also. I hope you like it.

I made this card for my friend Ginnie. I like the softness of it. I used a Cuttlebug folder but have no idea what the name of it is. I got a lot accomplished yesterday. My swap card is ready to send & I used a lot of cards I had on hand for my VA birthdays.

I made this birthday card for another Aux. member. I rarely use this color but I think it turned out well. The flower is from Hero Arts.

I made this birthday card for one of our Auxiliary members. Navy & white, always a nice color combo. I really need to get some cards made and finish my Christmas cards. Maybe I'll try to get some made today. I am chained to the washer and dryer so I may just do that.

Here's my swap card for this month. I needed a get well card so I decided to use it as my swap card. Colors are springy. I am bringing back shadow stamps. How many years has it been since they were so popular?

Another thank you card. This is for a guy and I tried to make it on the masculine side. The leaf punche is so old. The colors are So Saffron, Certainly Celery and Crumb Cake. The punched leaves are scrap DSP. I started working on my Christmas Cards yesterday and I am happy with the results. Just needs a little tweeking. I have the card parts cut out and the saying stamped so when we go to Brownsville next week I will take the parts and assemble them.

Here's another thank you note I made. It is pretty simple. This chevron is a new embossing folder from StampinUp. Colors are Baja and Crumb Cake

Here's a swap card I made for my small swap in Sept. I just discovered that I had not posted it. I like the colors a lot & thought it turned out pretty cute.

Here's one of many thank you cards that I need to make. I had this card base laying in my pile of card parts. The leaves are Heartfelt Creations stamp & die. I don't have the hang of this yet but I am getting better. I used alchol inks to color these leaves and used a stipple brush which for me gives better results than direct to paper and using the finger daubers. The embossing folder I used was Tim's wood grain & the big dots is a Cuttlebug folder. The rust color raises up for the thank you inside.

We had a silent auction @ the bazaar and I need to send thank you notes to the contributors. Mark is in a band and does beautiful pottery. Here is the card I made for him.

Here's a thank you card I finally made this morning. One down and lots more to make. I didn't accomplish much yesterday. I've got to get going on some things today.

I have a ton of thank you cards to make so I think I will work on that today after I shovel out the house. I am interviewing maids. I just want someone to dust and clean the shower. The shower is not a big problem but getting on a ladder to dust a number of things in this house is something I will do but not when I am home alone humm that would make a good movie wouldn't it! I have no cards to show you today so I am showing you the quilt that we raffled off @ the bazaar. I got a call @ 1:00 on Sun. that the winner had been notified & we needed to find a place to give it to her @ 2:00. yikes! I had not even been in the shower. We agreed to meet @ the Point and since we could not get into the main building I decided we should take the picture @ Stonehedge. Good advertising for the Point. This is the only quilt that I have ever wanted, it truly is a work of art!

Nov swap card

Here's my swap card that I made for the smaller swap I am in. Had trouble getting the proportions right & tossed the first one and started over. I saw something similar but without the bling. You know me, always have to bling it up.

I made this birthday card for an Aux. member too. She turns 90 on Sunday. Her daughters were going to have a party for her and she did not want that and said she would lock the doors and not come out. I personally am always ready for a party, especially when I don't have to do anything. I bought this stamp in the marked down bin @ Michaels. I went looking for inspiration when I was going to Pam's sleepover. I really like her. I also like the way it turned out. Tomorrow is D day for the bazaar. I'm looking forward to collapsing on Sunday! I'm already tired and I have not been up an hour. Too much work for an OLD person. Enough of my claptrap! Here's the card.
