Here's another birthday card I made. I love the soft colors. The scallop is a die from My Favorite Things. I don't use it much but I like the way it turned out.

This birthday card is way out of my color range. It is white, yellow and crumb cake. The DS is not yellow but ivory was blah so I added the yellow. Hope you like it.

Here's my last VA birthday for the month. I sure have dragged them out this month,. This paper is one I found when I was going through my 12x12 paper. Pretty simple card.

I sent this card to a friend who broke her wrist. I hope it cheered her up. This ribbon is one I have had for awhile. I really like it. This is not a very good picture. SAT!!

Here's a birthday card I made. Black, white and red. I made this one pretty simple. I tried casing this card but ended up putting the red ribbon top of the black paper. I thought I had the right name so I could give credit to the designer but when I went on that site I did not see anything like it.

Here's a VA birthday card. I have only one more to make this month. Seems like I really dragged them out. I like the little bit of green to break up some of the dark brown. StampinUp has a set that I like but one of the stamps is almost like this stamp. Humm I just thought I got this stamp in the $ bin @ Mile's so maybe I'll just go for it!

Here's the other shoe box card. The theme was blue. I did a similar card that was yellow & green a few posts back The layout was the same just changed things up a bit. I still like the yellow, green & white the best. I colored the Pima flowers with a marker that worked fairly well.

Here's a blue card I made for shoe box. Baja Breeze tone on tone. This was a challenge for me.

Another VA birthday card. This guy's birthday was on St. Patrick's day and I was determined not to make a St. Patrick's card. Bet that happened a lot. I punched some stars out and popped them up. They were almost the same size as the stamp. I liked the way this one turned out. I am still nursing this terrible bug. I'm sorry that my swap card is late but I simply don't have any energy. Dressing yesterday was all I could muster. I see the dr. today. I sure hope there is some miracle drug that will pick me up and get me back on track.

I have a terrible cold. Zapped my energy. I must get my VA cards done and I have not done my swap cards for this month. Here's a birthday card I made using my new Anna Griffin embossing folder. I really do like that one and can't wait to see if they have any more at Michel's. Maybe a hot shower will wash away some of the cobwebs so I can get some stamping done.

I made this birthday card for Brenda. I really like it. I used a StampinUp stamp and stamped it twice then popped up the labels 4 die and added the butterflies. The inside says Fluttering By with Best Wishes. I got the saying from Rubbernecker recently. I need to get my VA cards done today and work on my shoebox cards and my swap. I am relieved to have the wedding invitations done. Now maybe I can catch up with other things.

I made this birthday card for an Auxiliary member. It was an idea that was slow in coming. I like the spring time colors & dug out this Fiskars punch which has not seen daylight in awhile. The flowers are one's I bought at Michaels that I have had for a long time too and of course I had to add some bling.

Here's a card I made for the gift shop. I like the colors. The background is another Rubbernecker stamp.

Thinking of you card

Here's a card I did for the sunshine committee. It is Certainly Celery and white. This side border is a Anna Griffin embossing folder. Can't see much of the background but it is also Anna Griffin called Poppies. I bought it @ Michel's. They only had two but hopefully they will carry more. They sure are pretty folders.

I am back to blogging after spending some time with my twin sister. I made this thank you card last week. It's outside the box for me. the flower is from 5th Avenue Floral by StampinUp. They have a new set which is very similar which I would never buy because of the similarity. The flourish was stamped twice and over laid. It is a clear stamp from Inkadinkado. The background is Rubbernecker. I really like their stamps. They are cling and stamp very well.

I am late posting today. My twin sister is coming today and I had to get some things done. I have 100 invitations for Brittany's wedding done. Makes me feel good about that! I don't think I posted this birthday card. Pretty Simple. Blue and brown are pleasing colors for me.

Here's the wedding invitation. It is not a very good picture. Takes me 4 hours to make 20 but I am plugging away. I will be at least half done by the end of the day.

This is the invitation for the Aux. soup luncheon. We had demos & a good attendance & signed up some new members which was great! I'll retire this stamp for awhile, but I do really like it. Phyllis in Visual Arts drew a purse similar to this stamp and I copied it, colored it with Rose Red like the invitation and put a little rhinestone on the clasp and used it as a name tag. It was really cute. Nice to know some talented people.
